Comb over hairstyles have become hugely popular. They are not only classy but also work excellent for any face shape and hair type, complementing your unique style. We’re going to show you how to style the comb over in 2023 for a great trendy look!

Best Comb Over Haircuts for Men

Comb over haircut is one of the most popular men’s hairstyles where all hair on top is combed to one side. However, this haircut is really versatile and can go with a varying length on top, an undercut, a fade, or a hard part line. If you prefer to be on the bold side, consider getting an undercut comb over or a bald fade with longer hair on top. If you need to maintain a more professional look, try a low fade comb over instead. Let’s check the best comb over haircuts for your ultimate men’s moment.

1. Men’s Comb Over for Wavy Hair

Men’s comb over hairstyles are good for any texture, but wavy hair can provide you with the necessary volume without using any additional hair product. You may go for a high fade comb over for a super neat look that, however, features nice texture and a statement part line.

2. Comb Over Haircut and Bushy Beard

Comb over hairstyles for men fit perfectly into lumberjack chic or lumbersexual style as it’s often referred to. There’s something about men with beards that drive women crazy, but if your look is more organized, make sure you pair a full one with coiffed hair.

3. Men’s Long Comb Over with Short Hair on Sides

They say that blondes have more fun, but this look means business. With every piece of hair perfectly in place, this is a streamlined style that would pair just as well with a suit as it would with jeans and sneakers.

4. Bald Fade and a Hard Part Comb Over Haircut

If you were a fan of the tough haircut from the Fury movie, ask your barber for a cool high fade during your next visit. The hard part accurately delimitates the contrasting sections of tapered sides and medium-length hair on top.

5. Long Comb Over with Polished Waves

This is a nice look for a sociable man who is always out and about. By pairing classic long waves with a trendy low fade comb over, you create a style that is balanced enough to fit in a variety of different events. Mind that you will need to use a styling product to slick back the longer layers, though.

6. Taper Fade Comb Over Haircut

Although comb over fades are typically associated with shorter strands, there’s no reason why gentlemen with long hair should miss out on this trendy and handsome look. This classic taper haircut with messy, long layers on top is the perfect midway point for men who want to take the plunge.

7. Long Comb Over with Faded Sides

Comb over fade haircut paired with soft locks worthy of running your fingers through is ideal for guys with oval face shapes. And with its versatility, this kind of style could seamlessly move from day to night.

Super-long layers may not be acceptable for every man. But as this short comb over haircut shows, you don’t have to look like a hipster to part your hair on the side. Just keep sides and top cut fairly short so you look clean and perfectly groomed.

12. Hard Part Comb Over Haircut with Gelled Hair

Unfortunately (and wrongfully), there’s a stigma that men who comb their hair over are trying to hide balding. But, as this drop-dead sexy blonde cut exemplifies, comb over haircuts can be youthful, fresh and trendy. We suggest smoothing locks over with a pomade or putty.
