Sensational Side-Part Hairstyles for Men

Side-part hairstyles, which belong to classic men`s styles, are one of the most popular nowadays. Traditional long or modern fade cuts with shorter sides, sleek or messy, straight and curly variants from our gallery will make you more stylish. A right haircut for you, definitely!

1. Side-Parted Fade Hairstyle with Curly Top

Most men have a natural part as hair tends to fall more to one side than the other. Emphasize this by creating a deep side part that fades on the shorter half and is curly and sculpted on the other. It’s quite a distinct look that is still workplace appropriate.

2. Long Top Short Sides Style with Shaved Part

If you work in a more relaxed and casual environment, edge it up a bit with an etched parted hair design. It stands out more and really pops against dark hair. This is an ideal style for a contemporary young man.

3. Shiny Vintage Waves

A fella who appreciates the “good old days,” can’t go wrong with this vintage side part hairstyle for boys. The shiny, slick waves are reminiscent of Old Hollywood powerhouses like Cary Grant and Clark Gable. Weave golden highlights throughout your waves to make them look sun-kissed and natural.

4. Buzzed Sides Long Top Men’s Hairstyle

Who says blonde hair is just for heartthrobs and boys next door? Men who are more into Thirty Seconds to Mars than One Direction will enjoy the contrast of this comb over buzz cut and full beard. It’s a look that shows you mean business.

5. Spunky Side Bang

Ladies love a man of mystery, so why not to raise your intrigue level with long bangs? They cover a part of your face to make you look less accessible. As the saying goes, it’s best to always keep them wanting more.

6. Mohawk and Facial Hairstyle

Mohawks are nothing new, but for the latest upgrade to the side part haircut, you may add some color. Pink is no longer just for Barbie, incorporating the rosewood brown hue into a shaved style gives it a fun boost. Plus, it’s an exciting look that is sure to stand out in pictures.

7. Back to Business Men’s Haircut

Sometimes a wild hairstyle no longer suits your lifestyle, and you need to clean it up. Men who are starting a new job will appreciate this well-groomed look. Make sure to go easy on the gel so that you don’t look like you stepped into the office with wet hair.

8. New Pompadour Hairstyle

Just because you have a short side part haircut does not mean that you have to style you hair falling to one side or the other. A great option for round faces is a back-swept style with some lift of the quiff. The side part gives it more structure and adds a bit of edge.

9. Standout Side Part

Thick hair looks fantastic in men’s hairstyles with a part. Slightly brushing your quiff to one side, you will avoid a blocky look. It’s a good option for a weekend date.

10. Structured and Solid Men’s Hairstyle

A faux Mohawk in a modern interpretation is a great option for thick hair. When you keep it tight and structured, the hairstyle does not overwhelm your overall appearance. It is definitely a look that takes a confident man to pull off, so make sure to pair this with your best slim cut suit.

11. Straight and Slick Side Part

When looking for an ideal style for thin hair, it is important to understand the delicate nature of your strands. If you try to pump them up with a product, it might overload your hair and make it look sparser, resulting in the exact opposite look that you were going for. The sleek option, like in the photo, looks neat and pulled together.

12. Side Part Hairstyle for Fine Hair

Another way to tackle thinning hair is to simply embrace it. A side part hairstyle with closely clipped sides and side-swept top section makes it appear as though your hair is generally thicker.

13. Men’s Retro Hairstyle with a Twist

Tall styles like Mohawks and pompadours may not be flattering for long faces because they elongate visually. A slicked back style will be much more flattering. Add a side part and fade on the sides for a modern upgrade of the classic look with a retro feel.

14. Classy and Comfortable Men’s Tapered Haircut

If you are a man who believes frills are for the weak, this straightforward haircut is the best bet for you. The length is meticulously tapered for a super neat look. It’s a men’s hairstyle that can work well virtually anywhere.

15. Wild Widow’s Peak

Looking at shiny black hair and a pointy widow’s peak, many may first think of Count Dracula. Combat that stereotype and do something different by adding some flair with a stylish side part hairstyle for men. It elevates your standard medium haircut and remains in trend with the latest hipster craze.

16. Updated Undercut

Many praise the undercut hairstyle because it allows you to wear the long sections of your hair in a variety of different ways. It is versatile and individual. Personalize it further with a fun shaved design. The style is perfect for a young man who frequents the skate parks; it was made for life cruising through the fast lane.

17. Short and Statement-Worthy Side Part

Although this is very similar to the style above, it is better suited for men with long faces. Smoothing the hair down and to the side takes away from the unflattering extra height and length that a Mohawk would provide.

18. Side Part with Fade for African American Men

Black guys who like the dapper style of men like Sammy Davis Jr. and the Temptations will appreciate this sleek and sophisticated side part hairstyle for men. This modern-yet-elegant look is popular thanks to Jidenna and his hit song “Classic Man.”

19. High School Heartthrob

This cool look has become high in demand thanks to Justin Bieber. If you want to rule the high school hallways and become number one on the crush list, make this your next go-to. The crisp parted style shows a bit of sophistication, but the messy waves convey that you don’t take yourself too seriously.

20. Soft and Spiky

This is the ultimate side part haircut for a guy who wants to be stylish without looking like he tries too hard. The spikes show a bit of edge, but if you avoid the use of strong hold products, your hair is still soft and touchable. It’s a balanced look that would suit many men.

21. Short, Slick and Textured

This short and slick hairstyle is great for men who have wavy hair and like a very neat appearance. As seen in the picture, it works very well with sweater vests and preppy ensembles. To accomplish this style, you will need to be sure to use a nice amount of hair gel to keep the hair in place while maintaining the shine!
