This medium-length style features an extended nape, textured layers, and outward curving, middle-parted bangs that stylishly reveal the forehead. It's perfect for the fashion-forward man, blending elegance with a hint of edginess. To rock this look, keep it sleek and neat, letting the extended nape be your standout feature. A trend that's both modern and versatile, it's ideal for men looking to make a statement.

Spiky Mullet

The spiky mullet is making waves in men's fashion, merging the classic mullet's extended nape with a more subtle and natural spiky twist. While long mullets reign in Korea and East Asia, the West is seeing a rise in shorter versions. This style expresses individuality - the longer back nods to tradition, and the spiky texture up top adds a touch of modern rebelliousness. For styling, use a firm, texturized gel or pomade to spike the top, balancing the sleekness of the back. It's a suitable way to stand out and showcase your style.

Center Part Mullet, Curtain Mullet

The center part, or curtain mullet, a style originating from Korea, is set to continue their trend wave into 2024. This medium style exudes a blend of sophistication and ease, featuring extended collar-length hair and longer, center-parted bangs. Sometimes known as the “leaf cut” for the way the swept-back layers fall into the shape of a leaf, it adapts perfectly to various face shapes, offering a fresh take on the classic mullet. For styling, keep the bangs smooth and the nape neatly trimmed, creating a balanced, stylish look that's effortlessly cool.

Short Mullet

The short mullet, gaining traction in Europe, North America, and Southeast Asia, is a great blend of business and style. Also known as the "Fade Mullet" or "Barber Mullet," it features a collar slightly longer than a traditional fade cut. This mullet's extra short length makes it exceptionally versatile and easy to style. Keep the sides faded and the back subtly elongated for a sharp look. It's the ideal choice for a modern, sophisticated appearance that's right on trend.

Refined, Clean, & Very Short Barber Look

In 2024, the very short barber style is expected to gain even more popularity, matching seamlessly with clean, luxury fashion trends. This style, a natural evolution from the remote to office work shift era, offers a sleek, clean look with a natural texture. It's becoming a global favorite for its ease and adaptability. For styling, keep it minimal and let your hair's natural texture shine through. This look is about sophistication with an effortless edge, suitable for the contemporary man.

Ivy League Cut

The Ivy League cut, inspired by last year's Korean styles, is taking the world by storm this year. Gaining popularity in East Asia, thanks to its adoption by Korean celebrities, this cut is a chic variation of the short barber style and resembles the classic crew cut. It's becoming a must-have for its sleek, polished look. To master this trend, keep it neatly trimmed with a touch of texture on top, creating a refined yet approachable appearance.

Crew Cut

In 2024, the Crew Cut is making a significant comeback, aligning with the trend of simplicity, perfectly blending the concepts of high quality and modesty with ease. Popular in Western and ASEAN countries, this style is embraced for its simple charm and natural texture without the need for glossy shine. The haircut features longer hair on top and shorter hair on the sides and back, with a gradual taper from the front to the back. It's a hit in the barber culture for its simplicity and adaptability. To nail this look, go for a matte finish and a neatly trimmed appearance, embodying understated elegance and effortless sophistication. The Crew Cut is the epitome of laid-back luxury.

Buzz Cut

The buzz cut is resurging as a top trend this year, particularly in Western and ASEAN countries, thanks to its perfect match with barber culture. With a nod to the Y2K trend, reminiscent of styles popularized by several celebrity icons, the Buzz Cut is more than just a haircut – it's a fashion statement. This ultra-short style is all about embracing simplicity with a touch of edginess. For a modern twist, maintain a clean, even length all around, offering a sharp yet low-maintenance, unpretentiously chic look.

Perm, Curly Hair

The perm and all things curly are making a bold comeback across Europe and East Asia, not limited by hair length.

Whether adding playful curls to short hair or enhancing longer locks, the perm offers a dynamic change. No need to spend forever styling with a blow dryer. Embrace your coils with confidence, and enjoy the freedom and versatility it brings to your look. It's all about experimenting and expressing your personal style with a curly twist.

2024 is witnessing a surge in the popularity of the curly mullet, especially in Europe, the US, and East Asia. This style breathes new life into the classic mullet with its distinct, pronounced ridges and permed curls. The combination of a short mullet or barber hair with bold, defined curls creates a look that's both daring and sophisticated.

Even More Popular Men’s Hairstyles to Try in 2024

Are you still searching for that perfect hairstyle? Fear not. We've curated a list of timeless men's classic hairstyles guaranteed to stay on-trend throughout 2024. Whether you're after something bold or subtle, you will find a look that resonates with your personal style in this collection. Let's dive in and discover your new favorite!

Short Hairstyles for Men

Short hairstyles can go from simple, low-key cuts to longer, more striking hairstyles. They're generally also one of the most accessible types of haircuts to work with, but you'll need to frequent your local barbershop if you're looking to keep up with the look.

Short Quiff Hairstyles

The quiff is one of today’s most popular trending hairstyles — especially among teens and young adult men. It’s a safe pick for anyone looking for a cool hairstyle.

Textured Quiff Mohawk

Textured Quiff Mohawk

“Quiff” refers to hairstyles that combine different aspects of various older hairstyles. It often features aspects of both the flattop and pompadour of the 1950s and/or the mohawk. It effectively takes the best aspects of these styles and combines them, transforming them into something new entirely.

When you have a quiff style, its shape is very important. That’s why it’s necessary to have a variety of styling products on hand — especially if you like to be active or spend time outdoors. It’s a fairly demanding shortcut, but it’s well worth it if you ask us.

Short Curly Quiff

Short Curly Quiff man

An alternative to the regular quiff, the short curly quiff does more in terms of offering a natural-looking quiff cut. It uses the curly and messy nature of one’s own hair and doesn’t rely so heavily on hair products.

Low Undercut Hairstyles

Quiffs are good hairstyles for men who want to try going short, but they aren’t the shortest styles on the market. There are, plenty of styles that are even shorter and that require very minimal effort to look good.

These styles have an undercut, which is a type of buzz cut that is done on the sides and back of the head. Today, we’re talking about low undercuts, which aren’t as neat and tidy as middle or high fades but are simpler and more natural in appearance.

Low Fade & Hard Part

Low Fade & Hard Part men

If you’re looking to stand out without using your hair, opt for a hard part. As its name suggests, this parting method involves parting the hair at the side and top. Often, the hard part is paired with the low fade, which has the sides and back of the hair fading towards the edges of the hairline. This gives the hard part the space it needs to stand out and give you a classy, modern hairstyle.

Short Curly Haircut & Low Drop Fade

Short Curly Haircut & Low Drop Fade

An awesome cut to add to the list if you have curly hair, this hairstyle focuses on looking neat and polished. It might sound like a challenge, but this style manages to pull it off quite successfully.

Curly hair is best left curly, and as such, you’ll want to complement it with a natural style. Straight, low fades don’t do the trick — they don’t blend well enough with the curls at the top of the head so drop fades are used instead. By fading behind the ears, this style gives off a natural vibe that pairs well with the curls.

Mid-Fade Haircuts

Mid-fades are fades that aren’t too small to be considered a low fade and aren’t too big to be called a high fade. They’re the perfect mid-range option for someone who can’t decide which kind of fade he wants. They’re also less severe than the high fade but still offer a neat, polished finish that those very fades are known for.

Short Textured Quiff & Mid Fade

Short Textured Quiff & Mid Fade

We’ve already gone over quiff haircuts, but they weren’t combined with mid fades, like in this style. Quiff haircuts are incredibly versatile, as they can look rugged and manly or neat and tidy depending on how they’re combed or styled.

Short Textured Quiff & Mid Fade variation

High and Tight Fade Haircuts

The high fade is a guaranteed standout because the exposure of the scalp makes it hard not to look at it. If fades could talk, the high fade would be the loudest. But that's not all it does — with little to no hair on the sides, the high fade helps focus people's attention on your eyebrows and facial hair.

High Temp Fade & Short Spiked Wavy Hair

High Temp Fade & Short Spiked Wavy Hair

Looking to add some extra edge to your style? Look no further than a spiked hairstyle. At first glance, spiked short hair might look like a quiff or a fauxhawk, but there is a difference – and that is how the hair is positioned. Spiky hair is styled upwards, giving it the name “spiked hair”.

If you choose to adopt this style, we recommend using a gel, wax or pomade for the best results. You’ll need something firm enough to hold the spikes all day, and, luckily, any of these products will do just that.

Mohawk Hairstyles

Mohawks have long been the staple of boy bands, rockstars, and men who pride themselves on looking cool. Typically, the mohawk hairstyle has both sides of the head shaven or very short, with a strip of hair down the center of the head that is long and styled into spikes.

Nowadays, the modern mohawk is often curly, wavy, tousled, or purposely made to be more messy and natural.

Short Mohawk & Fade

Short Mohawk & Fade

You know what the mohawk is and likely know a thing or two about fading as well, but have you heard of the mohawk fade? If not, you’re missing out! This short style provides you with all the things you love about the mohawk and all the most popular aspects of the fades that everyone wants.

This style is easy to maintain and can be customized to suit your unique likes and dislikes, as well as your chosen profession.

Short & Spiked Mohawk

Short & Spiked Mohawk with a beard

If you aren't sure what to get at all, then try going for a short and spiked mohawk look. It's not too bold, not too low-key, is relatively low-maintenance, and can even be styled into other hairstyles when grown out, thanks to the top not being much longer than the sides.

Faux Hawk

If you’re not a fan of the bold statement that the mohawk makes but still enjoy the general premise of the look, there is a more low-key, relaxed alternative that could work for you. It’s known as the faux hawk, which is a less-defined version of the mohawk.

Spiky Mohawk

Spiky Mohawk with Egyptian goatee

The spiky mohawk follows closely in the footsteps of the classic mohawk, but it has a more modern appeal. First of all, it looks much neater due to the way that it’s styled. It also tends to be thicker than the classic punk-rock mohawks we’re used to seeing, which gives the hair more volume.

High Fade Mohawk

High Fade Mohawk

A combination of the mohawk and the ever-stylish high fade, the fade mohawk is gaining popularity with both young and old generations. The mohawk can be any length, which is what makes it such a great option. In this style, however, the fade is high, meaning it follows a clean, straight line as it goes back from the forehead, becoming shorter as it moves towards the back of the neck.

Short Comb-over Hairstyles

Short comb-overs were designed to be paired with a tailored suit, some nice shoes, and a day at the office. The short-comb over never goes out of style and has been in fashion since it first became popular.

Classic Short Comb-over

One of the cleanest, most polished styles on this list, the classic short comb-over has us thinking of a child having his hair styled for his class photo or piano recital. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the comb-over is childish – in fact, we’d argue that it’s a very classy, manly style, as many CEOs and important businessmen can be seen rocking it.

Crew Cut Hairstyles with High Fade, & Full Beard

Crew Cut, High Fade & Full Beard

Crew Cut, High Fade & Full Beard men

Are you proud of your beard? Are you looking to have it stand out? Then this is the hairstyle for you. The crew cut has been and will likely always be a simple style that’s ideal when paired with facial hair that you’re looking to draw attention to.

When you add a high fade to the look, your beard turns into the center of attention.

Side Swept Crew Cut

Side Swept Crew Cut

This is a great example of how a small adjustment can mean all the difference when you think of popular haircuts. The side-swept crew cut is a modification of the classic crew cut, with the only adjustment being that the hair is swept to the side. Voila!

Buzz Cut Hairstyles

Popular among athletes, buzz cuts are shorter than the crop, their distant cousin. They are often paired with side fades.

Buzz Cut Fade

Buzz Cut Fade men

A simple style that looks great on almost anyone, the buzz cut fade uses the classic structure of the buzz cut and transforms it. It’s made more eye-catching by the addition of a fade that starts at the length of the buzz cut and gets shorter as it moves towards the top of the head.

Buzz Cut with Beard

Buzz Cut with Stubble Beard and shaved side

A buzz cut and beard pairing are bound to get you some extra attention – there’s just something about this style that boosts a man’s masculinity and gives off an air of toughness.

Pairing a buzz cut with a beard is a simple hairstyle trick that should be kept in mind.

Other Short Hairstyles for Men

Haven't found any short hairstyles that you like yet? Fear not, we have a few more options that don't really fall under any category so far but are stylish enough to be featured here.

Flat Cut

flat cut trending hairstyle from the front and side

The flat cut's most distinctive feature is the stylish straight silhouette created on the head's top and back. The flat cut is sometimes called the "chicoryander cut" in many Asian countries. It became quite a hot topic after many actors in Korean dramas sported it, and it is a style that suits working professionals and students alike.

Flat Top

Flat Top with bowtie

If you've played any of the Street Fighter games, you probably recognize this haircut from the character Guile. The flat top is a particular type of hairstyle that gets its name from the flat shape of the hair on top. Flat tops can be short, medium, or long, depending on personal preference and how well the hair can be held up with gel or pomade.

Curly Flat Top

Curly Flat Top with design shave

While the flat top is usually associated with straight hair, curly flat tops are their own thing. Often not as long as a straight flat top, a curly flat top shapes the curls of the hair as flatly as possible.

What's cool about curly flat tops is that they can look very different, depending on the type of curly hair. Frizzy, curly hair (the kind that you'd see in afros) can seem more voluminous. Meanwhile, the wavier variants of curly hair look messier than the average flat top.

Short Messy and French Crop

In 2024, we’re still expecting to see short styles. More specifically, short hairstyles are slowly gaining popularity as the virus settles down, both because the frequency of haircuts will increase (some men just want to say goodbye to their long hair) and because many men want to play with their hairstyle. In the same vein, they may also want to grow out their self-done short haircuts just a bit, transforming their buzz cut or crew cuts into a short, messy, or crop style.

Short Messy

short messy hair trending hairstyle

Short messy hairstyles are easy to pull off and can be very versatile, making them a good choice for men who work in a variety of sectors and hold various jobs. Short, messy styles can be paired with other styles, such as fades and beards. These styles can be worn wavy, curly, or straight and can be cut very short or a little longer so that hair falls onto the forehead.

Short, messy hairstyles can do wonders for one’s appearance when paired with tailored clothing or a personal aesthetic. For example, when paired with leather jackets, studded shoes, and bold sunglasses, short, messy hairstyles make the wearer look like a rockstar.

Messy Cropped Top & Low Fade - Popular from 2022

Messy Cropped Top & Low Fade

For those looking for a messier hairstyle that involves low fades, there are few better options than the messy cropped top. Cropped tops are hairstyles that, as the name suggests, crop the top part of the hair while cutting the back and sides, usually in the form of a fade. Cropped tops are typically paired with middle or high fades, but low fades work just as well.

Low fades look best with cropped tops when they're messy. Messy cropped tops aren't well-suited with the neatness of high and middle fades, which is why they work so well with low fades. If you'd rather have a neater cropped haircut, you may want to go for a middle or high fade instead.

French Crop - Popular from 2022

french crop hairstyle

The French crop isn’t for everyone. It’s an interesting mix of a traditional cropped cut and a short-to-long fringe. The top of the French crop is more voluminous than its most similar cousin, the buzz cut. Admittedly, French crops are hard to pull off, so before committing to one, it’s important to know that you’re a good candidate or at least be aware that the French crop is a risk.

Textured Crop Top Fade - Popular from 2022

Textured Crop Top Fade

Since the crop is such a standout hairstyle as it is, it’s seriously no wonder that adding a textured top and a fade make this style go from 10 to 100 on the style scale. The textured crop top fade haircut is a careful combination of a traditional crop and a high fade. The style gets its name from the fact that the fade is so high that it almost seems to be a ‘top fade.’

With this hairstyle, the voluminous portion of the hair is textured; it might be spiky, curly, or wavy, which gives the haircut an added boost of dimension and intrigue.

Scissor Crop & Mid Fade - Popular from 2022

Scissor Crop & Mid Fade

The scissor crop and mid fade are similar to the messy cropped top, but this time with a mid fade instead of a low undercut. This hairstyle uses a scissor crop on the top of your head, which is a variation of the crop haircut. As the name suggests, the scissor crop involves the use of scissors instead of shavers to get the job done.

Combine the scissor crop with a mid fade, and you've got yourself a neat-looking hairstyle, which is perfect for men who are a little insecure about their forehead size. Don't worry, we’ve got you.

Icy Cold Young French Crop & Highlights - Popular from 2022

Icy Cold Young French Crop & Highlights

Not happy with the Crop hairstyles above? If you really want to stand out, this playful variation of the crop hairstyle should do the trick. French crops are already standout material, and with some extra highlights, you'll be looking younger and more colorful than usual. You can even take it one step further and dye your hair before adding highlights

Medium-Length Hairstyles for Men

For a lot of men, the medium-length spectrum of hairstyles provides the most options. It's basically the Goldilocks zone of hairstyles, as it isn't too short nor too long for the average Joe. You can quickly tell who'd look great (and not so great) in short or long hairstyles, but it's challenging to do the same for medium-length hairstyles. They work well with most face shapes and types, making them extremely popular among men.

Curtain Bangs Popular from 2022

curtain bangs trending hairstyle

Curtain hair was a hit in 2022, and this year, in 2024, it's continuing to be a trend. Not only is the popularity of curtain hair continuing to hold, but it also seems to be increasing.

S-shaped Curtain

s-shaped curtain trending hairstyle

The S-shaped curtain hair is very similar to the standard curtain hair except that the S-shape variation sees the hair of the fringe bending inwards once and flipping back out at the ends, forming an S shape instead of the classic C shape. We recommend hard spray or sea salt spray to style the gentle curves of this style.

Curly Curtain

curly curtain trending hairstyle

Men with naturally curly and permed hair can rock this hairstyle easily, as it complements this hair texture fantastically. It requires minimal effort and works with long or short hair. In addition, you can wear it regardless of how curly your hair is. If your hair is longer on the sides and back, your overall hairstyle will look more relaxed and casual, while if your hair is shorter, it will look professional, mature, and more suitable for the office. Curly curtain hair can help a man achieve a "grunge" look with sea salt spray.

Comma - Popular from 2022

comma trendy Korean hairstyle

The comma hairstyle is a medium-length curtain style in which the fringe is styled towards the face to resemble a comma (“,”). The comma is popular with Korean pop artists and celebrities. It is versatile enough to be worn regardless of hair texture.

Messy Comma - Popular from 2022

messy comma hairstyle

The messy comma effortlessly combines K-pop and chic style. It's ideal for men with medium to long hair and those with thick, voluptuous hair. The hair should generally be tousled and unkept to achieve a messy comma. Still, the fringe should always curl inward, like in other comma variations.

Medium Mullets

medium mullet

The medium mullet has a specific length at the collar and on the top and sides of the head. Because of this medium-long length, the medium mullet is particularly popular with men passionate about fashion. You can style it in various ways, including curtain bangs.

Wavy Mullet

wavy mullet

The wavy mullet, a refreshing take on the medium-length classic, is all the rage in 2024. This style is loosely curled or wavy hair, offering a unique blend of flair and sophistication. Perfect for a casual yet polished look, the waves add texture and movement, creating a dynamic appearance. For styling, let your natural waves take center stage or enhance them with hot styling tools beforehand. It's the ideal choice for an effortless and striking contemporary look.

Classic Taper Hairstyles

The classic taper cut is, in many ways, a disconnected undercut. Hair on both the back and sides of the head is tapered and relatively short while the top is slightly longer and allows for various forms of styling. This short-to-long gradient gives it the name “taper”.

Short Textured Haircut & Long Fringe

Short Textured Haircut & Long Fringe

For many millennials, this particular haircut will bring back a ton of memories. Popular within the “emo phase” of the early to mid-2000s, this cut is still in fashion. A long fringe paired with a short cut looks surprisingly stylish and is versatile, too, as the short pair of the haircuts can be anything from a buzz cut to a fade.

Arch Fringe & Scissor Taper

Arch Fringe & Scissor Taper

Looking to drop the shaver? Great! Why not opt for a look that’s heavy on the scissors? Taper cuts already use a longer fringe which is primarily cut using scissors – this makes adding in some extra scissors work a reasonable idea.

This haircut can look great, but it’s important to find a barber who knows their way around a pair of scissors.

Modern Slicked-back Men's Haircut

Modern Slicked-back Men's Haircut

While this slicked-back style can resemble a pompadour, the two are completely different. The pompadour does give off an air of slicked-back aesthetic, but the term “slicked-back hair” is a category of cuts all in itself.

Classic Combed-back Hairstyles

Everyone loves the classics — including the combed-back hairstyle. It requires more maintenance than a buzz cut or crew cut, but it’s almost always looked at as incredibly stylish and fashion-forward.

Confident Quiff Brush-up

Confident Quiff Brush-up

The quiff can be rocked with medium-length hair, too, giving off a lot of attitude. To achieve the correct look within this style, you’ll need to have a bit of pomade or gel on hand, as well as a brush and a comb. Simply apply the product and use a bit of combing to brush up and back from the forehead. Voila — a confident quiff brush up!

Brushed-back Scissor Crop

Brushed-back Scissor Crop

Generally, scissor crops are short. But if you’ve grown your crop out or have intentionally decided to keep it a little longer, this might be the perfect hairstyle for you. All you have to do is brush out the hair on top of your head.

Mid-length Pompadour Hairstyles

Here are a few more pomp ideas for all of you out there who think that the short pomp just isn't long enough.

Textured Pompadour Fade

Textured Pompadour Fade

Pompadours and fades; a combination that no one would have seen coming but continuously proves to be one of the most popular hairstyle combos among men. This textured pompadour is best done when paired with medium and high fades.

Messy Textured Pompadour & Low Fade

Messy Textured Pompadour & Low Fade

While low fades aren’t generally a great idea when paired with pomps, there is one exception and it’s this ultra-modern haircut. When you’re sporting a messy or wavy pompadour, a low fade compliments it well since it is neat and tidy. Using this pairing, your pomp will have a natural and rugged, manly feel.

Classic Pompadour

Classic Pompadour

The classic pomp is exactly that — a classic. If you have a pomp of any kind, it’s almost certainly been inspired by the classic pompadour. The main difference between the classic and the modern pompadour is the cut on the sides of the head, with modern pomps sporting super short sides, undercuts, or shaved sides and the classic having slightly shorter sides and a slicked-back appearance.

Medium-Length Haircuts & Mid Fades

Here are a couple of other medium-length hairstyles that make good use of a nice mid fade.

Medium Side-swept Men's Hairstyle

Medium Side-swept Men's Hairstyle

If you’d rather finger-comb than use an actual comb, a side-swept haircut is just the thing for you. With medium-length hair on the top of your head, this haircut gives you enough volume to look fashion-forward and stylish, while also keeping it short enough to be easily managed using pomade or gel.

Curly Fringe

Curly Fringe hairstyle men

Even though the curly fringe is a style that will likely always be in style, it’s a look that only a small percentage of men can pull off. If you’re one of the lucky few who can, then you should definitely give it a go.

Curly Fringe & Classic Taper Fade

Curly Fringe & Classic Taper Fade

There’s a lot going on in this hairstyle. From the youthful, fun curly fringe to the modern fade and tasteful tapering, this style draws the eye in a million different directions. Say hello to a show-stopping look.

Men's Hairstyles with Added Mess

Men's Hairstyles with Added Mess

Feeling a little wild lately? A messy hairstyle can really go well with that personality. If you've got thick hair, though, you may find it difficult to shape it the way you want. Fortunately, some styles can make you look as wild as you want without forcing your hair to stand up in weird shapes.

Side Part Hairstyles

side part Men Hairstyle

Side parts, in a way, are more of an accessory to a hairstyle than a hairstyle in itself. For example, you can add one into a quiff, a slicked-back haircut, or even a pomp if you're feeling daring. There are plenty of reasons to throw in a side part since they make your top more pronounced while presenting a cleaner look.

side part Men Hairstyle variation

Relaxed Side Part - Rising Popularity

relaxed side part Men Hairstyle

A relaxed side part is the less severe, more natural-looking cousin of the classic side part. It suits just about any face shape, and works the best on medium-long, and has been getting popular in recent years.

Classic Side Part

classic side part

In 2024, the classic side part is seeing a resurgence, especially as men transition back to office settings, favoring clean, barber-style looks. This style, initially popular in London and now gaining traction in New York, is moving away from heavy pomade use. Instead, it embraces a more natural texture, focusing on a clean, sophisticated appearance. For styling, opt for light products that enhance your hair's natural movement, giving a fresh, effortless look that's both professional and stylish.

Natural Hairstyles

Natural Bowl Cut

natural bowl cut men hairstyle

Though bowl cuts were at their most popular during the ’80s, there are still renditions of them that pop up today. The natural bowl cut can make a great hairstyle provided that you have the face shape for it and the time to maintain its length in order for it to keep its signature round shape.

Bowl Cut with Short Bangs

Bowl Cut with Short Bangs

Yet another variant of the modern bowl cut, this shorter-fringe bowl cut has the fringe stopping just above the eyebrows. Its signature feature is the straight, forward line that runs from the ears and across the forehead.

Bowl Cut with Side-swept Bangs

Bowl Cut with Side-swept Bangs

If the regular bowl cut doesn’t interest you, mix it up a bit! Instead, keep your fringe a little longer and direct its flow to the side of your face by running your fingers through it. A simple side sweep is a great way to transform a basic bowl cut into something more modern and exciting.

Guile Cut

As a basic style that uses either a side or middle part and has the wearer tucking both sides of the part behind their ears, this style shouldn’t and doesn’t require a lot of effort to achieve.

The long curly fade is a contemporary style that complements its wearer’s confidence.

Long Curly or Wavy Hairstyle men

If you've got curly or wavy hair, one of the best ways to show it off is by just letting it all down. It never hurts to keep it simple, and with curly and wavy hair, you don't need any elaborate hairstyles to stand out. Just be prepared; you’ll need good hair products and regular combing to maximize the look.

As a complement to your long hair, you can grow out your mustache or beard to match. You could go for a simple, minimal look or a more elaborate look like the anchor beard shown in the picture. If you'd rather just get a clean shave, then that works fine, too.

Tousled hair can make you stand out; however, it can also be challenging to pull off. To achieve a look like this, you’ll need long, thick hair and a handful of products, including a matte hard wax. When it comes to styling a tousled look, take your time to get the hang of it, as it’s important to find the perfect balance between classy and messy.

Side Swept Undercut

Side Swept Undercut

Side-swept undercuts are the little cousin of the tousled hairstyle. Instead of having to toss your hair around and risk creating knots, this style involves only a comb and some good pomade. As the name suggests, this cut features long hair that’s been combed to the side, as well as an undercut on the sides of the head.

Long Spiky Hairstyles & High Skin Fade

Yeah, undercuts are cool and all, but if you’re the type of person who prefers a clean-cut style, then high fades are a great alternative. These cuts erase almost all of the hair on the sides of your head, allowing the eyes of everyone around you to be drawn to the top of your head, where the volume and intrigue are.

Long Hair Slicked Back & Shaved Sides
