Men are constantly on the search for a good hairstyle. Shorter haircuts are especially common for men, because they are very easy to manage, don’t require much maintenance, have very stylish looks, and are suitable for most any situation. Here are some popular short hairstyles for men.
This haircut began as a common military haircut, but has gained and maintained popularity for many years, even being considered a “classic” style in the eyes of many. This is a style that is cut with clippers, with a short top, and even shorter sides and back. The sides and back may be faded or tapered, while the top is usually a single length. For some men, this haircut requires no styling, but some may use a small amount of wax, pomade or clay to give it extra texture.
The classic “no maintenance required” cut, as this style usually requires no hair products to manage or style it. This haircut features very short hair all around, sometimes the entire head being “buzzed” to a single, short length. Some barbers will choose to cut the sides/back slightly shorter than the top, and taper or fade it. This is a perfect hairstyle for people that don’t care to devote much time to their hair, as it keeps a very clean-cut look at all times.
The fade haircut leaves more hair on the top for people who wish to maintain a certain style to their hair. The sides and back are cut very short, often faded down to the skin at the bottom. The top of the sides are cut in a way that gives a blended look as it combines with the longer hair on top, which is often left a couple inches long.
Products that are needed to manage this hairstyle varies depending on the style desired, length of the top, and type of hair. If the top is shorter, paste or wax may be suitable. However if it is left a little longer, then gels and pomades are common.
The undercut haircut is an extremely popular style for men in the music and movie industry. It offers a way to combine a short hairstyle, with longer hair on top. The sides are generally cut very short, often even down to the skin. However the top of the hair is left longer, often times even around 6 inches. Unlike the fade haircut though, the tops of the sides are generally not blended into the much longer top. This results in a very drastic difference in length between the sides and top, which is the intent of the style. Products used to style this hair often consist of light hold gels, or pomades.
A man’s hairstyle is often one of the first things noticeable on him. It can quickly alter how seriously he is taken, and whether he is viewed as a successful individual or not. However, not all short hairstyles for men are going to work for everyone. Various factors come into play, and it is important for a man to research well before choosing a hairstyle. But with the right haircut for the right man, it can completely change how he is viewed in public eye.
