1. The Fade Haircuts

The term “fade” first appeared in black-owned barbershops and was used to describe an aggressively tight taper in men’s hair.

The hair on the sides and back is cut (tapered) as close as possible, with a machine or clippers.

Then, it “fades” up to the top of the head.

The hair on top can be styled neatly or given a messy texture with gel, paste, or strong pomade.

Sometimes, the faded haircut is mistakenly called the ‘military reg.’ haircut.

However, this is incorrect because each military service branch has different hair length regulations that can’t be generalized into one haircut for all.

Skin Fade Haircut (High Fade)

High fade haircuts for men

Very suitable for straight hair, the skin fade – high fade is a classic haircut that works independently or as a base for any edgy haircuts.

The high fade follows a line that goes straight back from the corner of the forehead. Just make sure you tell your barber you want a skin fade and not a shadow fade.

The skin, or bald fade, tapers hair right down to the skin while the shadow fade goes from short hair at the hairline to even shorter hair at the neckline.

Mid Fade Haircut

Mid fade haircuts for men

A mid-fade haircut is a fade cut that starts at a level between the temples and the ears.

Starting the fade halfway down gives you the benefits of length and contrast simultaneously, allowing for the perfect balance in any cut.

This style works wonders, with or without facial hair.

Taper Fade Haircut (Tapered)

Taper Fade haircuts for men

A tapered haircut is achieved by gradually changing your hair length.

It starts longer at the top of the head and gets shorter as you go down to the natural hairline on the nape of the neck and sides of the head.

Ask your hairstylist for a long taper – when your hair is longer, and you want to keep it that way, or a short taper – in this case, the hair comes down closer to the skin.

Close-Cropped Fade Haircut

Close-Cropped fade haircuts for men

The crop is a short textured haircut paired with a fade on the back and sides.

Often worn with a blunt fringe, the crop top haircut can also work with a short fringe cut towards the hairline or a long fringe down the forehead.

Comb Over Fade Haircut (Skin Fade Comb)

Comb Over Fade mens haircuts

A comb over fade, also known as a skin fade comb, is a timeless fade length combined with a textured comb over and side part.

Apply some dry shampoo for volume and piece the ends of your hair with a matte pomade, to finish the Comb Over Fade haircut and achieve a textured comb-over.

Classic Fade Haircut

Classic Fade haircut

The cool fade haircut; remember, not all faded haircuts are cut super short on the back and sides.

The top hair is left longer and tapered down with clippers – on the sides and back – to blend into the skin at the nape.

Brush it up with a slight part, like in the pics above, to give this ‘longer fade’ a polished final look.

Razor Fade Haircut

Razor Fade haircuts for men

The razor fade haircut, sometimes called the straight razor fade, is a type of skin tapered fade cut, where the guy’s hair is shaved on the sides and at the back.

Suitable as a base for slicked-back hair, taper fade haircut, comb over hairstyle, and even a medium haircut – messy hairstyle cut with a razor blade fade.

Also, a base for sophisticated hairstyles such as under wavy locks, mohawk fade, or undercut textured spikes.

Curly Hair Fade Haircut

Fade haircuts for curly hair men

There are lots of curly hair fade variations out there, some longer, some shorter, some skinnier, some meatier, as the barber’s trained and likes to cut.

But, as a general rule, curly hair should be longer on top with nothing at the sides or shorter all over with faded edges.

The more curls you have, the lower the fade – the best example of this style is the British heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua.

Also, you can concentrate texture and length on the top of the head with a high fade.

If neither of those work, there are plenty of medium fade options somewhere in between.

Fade Buzz Haircut

Fade Buzz haircuts for men

The faded buzz haircut reflects the shaving of the back and the sides to one uniform length.

However, the hair on top of the head is trimmed to a slightly – just slightly – longer length.

In essence, this formes the basis of a ‘fade’ as the shaved sides are blended into the top hair.

A popular choice in 2021, this style works great with a well-manicured beard.


2. The Classic Haircuts

Hair trends may be well and good for a brief second in time, but there are no trends that could rival the longevity of a classic hairstyle.

Designed for medium hair, thicker hair, and wavy hair, the following classic haircuts are anything but transient fads.

Perpetually stylish, these classic style staples include a wide range of timeless styles, from modern pompadour to textured hairstyles and curly hairstyles.

French Crop Haircut

classic French Crop haircuts for men

Similar to a Caesar cut but in Italian style, the French crop consists of hair that is cut short on the back and sides and kept slightly longer through the top.

Depending on the length, you can keep it either combed forward over the forehead or pushed to the side.

Buzz Cut Hairstyle

Classic Buzz Cut hairstyles

Initially adopted by and described as a traditional America military-style cut, the contemporary buzz cut features a slightly closer trimmed back and sides with a more extended patch of hair left on the top.

However, as the processing speed of hundreds of soldiers was vital, the classic buzz cut was done with machines, fast, with one size on the sides and back of your head and one size up on the top, to create the illusion of height – even on short, buzzed hair.

Slick Back Hairstyle

Classic Slick Back haircut for men

The classic Slick Back remains one of the most fabulous hairstyles around.

The slick back hairstyle confers a simple and sexy look at the same time and can make the wearer appear mature, sexy, and casual business-like.

Create your slick back style by brushing all your hair back and using some pomade on damp hair to preserve a bit of moisture and secure the final shape.

Men’s Side Parting Hairstyle

Classic Side Parting haircuts for men

Side part haircuts are also called regular cut, professional cut, standard cut, or businessman cut.

To create a side part, hold the tip of a comb down towards the scalp.

The comb should be positioned a couple of inches to the left or right of the imaginary center line running down your head.

With the tip held down, draw the part in a straight line down the back of your head.

Ideally, you’ll ask your barber to help with side parting; just make sure you specify which side part style you’re looking for.

Men’s Shoulder Length Hairstyle

Classic Shoulder Length haircuts for men

Shoulder-length hairstyles are for men who can flaunt a healthy, well-kept head of hair.

If you’re well-endowed in the hair department, a shoulder-length hairstyle is a serious head-turner.

Paving the way for quiffs, pompadours, and modern style textured crops, shoulder-length men’s haircuts open up a Pandora’s Box of possibilities that short haircuts can’t provide.

Hi-Top Fade Haircut

Classic Hi-Top Fade haircuts for men

The high-top fade haircut has reached peak popularity in the early 1990s, re-trending now in 2021, and is a hairstyle expected to reach new heights in 2022.

The cut has come a long way from Kid of Kid’ n Play’s unforgettable look, and regardless of the way you wear it, the hi-top fade remains a very cool haircut for men.

Pompadour Hairstyle for Men

Classic Pompadour haircut for men

The pompadour hairstyle was named after Madame de Pompadour (1721–1764), a mistress of King Louis XV of France.

Although there are numerous variations of the style for men, women, and children, the main idea is to create a large volume of hair swept upwards from the face and worn high over the forehead.

A men’s pompadour haircut features longer hair that’s swept up and back at the top and flanked by slick sides or shorter sides.

The hair is the tallest and most voluminous at the front of the hairline, receding in size and scope as it flows back.

Men’s Quiff Cut Hairstyle

Classic Quiff Cut mens haircuts

Quiff is a British term describing a prominent piece of hair brushed up and back from the forehead. A forelock is an excellent example of a quiff.

Start with a close buzz (about #1-1/2) at the neckline and a mid-level fade way up for a quiff cut.

The sides and top should be blended without a disconnect, while the hair at the very top of your head should be around 3 inches long.


3. The Fringe Haircuts

A shorter section of hair cut straight across the forehead is called fringe in Britain.
In America, the correspondent of fringes is ‘bangs.’

The word bangs first appeared in 1878 (in the context of hairstyles), and it derives from the adverbial use of bang to mean ‘abruptly.’

In this case, a bang symbolizes a part of the hair cut ‘bang off.’

Men’s fringe (or men’s bangs) has emerged as a fantastic hairstyle in 2021.

Now, whether you want a fringe that lays flat (flat-on bangs) or has a bit of volume is your personal choice; all fringe haircuts are in fashion right now, as you’ll see below.

Men’s Side Fringe Hairstyle

Side Fringe haircuts for men

Above all fringes, the side fringe is making the biggest comeback.

It doesn’t matter whether your hair is long, short, bobbed, or cropped; there’s a side fringe to suit every type of hair!

Uhh… I guess apart from those of you with afro hair.

Men’s Straight Fringe Hairstyle

Straight Fringe haircuts for men

While pretty much everyone suits a fringe, it’s all about where the edge ends,’ especially in the case of a straight fringe.

If you go for a long straight fringe, know it will accentuate your cheekbones or brow skimming.

Ideally, a straight fringe hairstyle will fit the face shape and the jawline.

Men’s Angular Fringe Haircut

Angular Fringe haircuts for women

The angular fringe haircut is a style in which the sides are kept somewhat short, and the top is left relatively long.

The ‘short on the sides, long on top’ concept is the same one on which styles like the undercut and the pompadour are based.

The vital difference is that the fringe is left hanging over the forehead.

Men’s Textured Fringe Haircut

Textured Fringe classic haircuts for men

Textured fringe haircuts are just as the name says; fringe style haircuts with some sort of layering in them instead of classic fringe cuts or blunt bangs.

However, textured bags require more hair than other bangs styles, often up to 2 inches back from your hairline.

Short Fringe Haircut for Men

Short Fringe haircuts for men

Short bang trend is also known as baby bangs, cropped bangs, or mini fringe and reflects a look that’s grazing the forehead, in some sense.

These bangs are short, like really short.

Settling higher than the brow bone, this bang style makes long curtained fringe look like a waterfall.

A great hairstyle for a rebellious look, it works wonders matched with tattoos and accessories.

Long Fringe Hairstyle for Men

Long fringe haircuts for men

While long hair length varies from culture to culture, long bangs that cover your hairline or forehead is a cut every stylish individual should try once.

Curly Fringe Haircut for Men

Curly Fringe haircuts for men

Curly bangs are a hairstyle where the fringe is curled by iron or left alone to grow if the hair has a naturally curly texture.

No matter your natural curl type, from 2c to 4c, every man can rock a curly fringe.

It’s all about how you style and work with it, and for that, a thorough consultation with your hairstylist is needed.

Men’s French Crop Fringe

French Crop Fringe haircuts for men

The French Crop fringe is a classic style that works with either skin fade around the head or a semi-cut style.

The key of a French crop lies in the fringe, high if you’re going for a faded cut, or long, in case of a messier hairstyle.

Faux Hawk Fringe Hairstyle

Faux Hawk fringe hairstyles for men

The faux hawk hairstyle, also known as Fohawk, has been one of the trendiest haircuts over the last few years, and for a good reason.

This haircut mimics a mohawk — hence the name “faux hawk” or “fake hawk” — with the ‘wave’ riding through the top.

Yet, this modified style gives you much more freedom when it comes to what you do with the sides.


4. The Military Haircuts

A military haircut, also known as induction cut, is the shortest possible hairstyle without shaving the head with a razor.

The style is the first haircut given to new male recruits during initial entry into many of the world’s armed forces.

A low guard clipper is used around the sides of the head, and the hair is left around 1 inch long on the top.

There is no gradual tamper between the sides and the top of the head.

Burr Cut Hairstyle

Burr Cut mens haircuts

One of the most straightforward haircuts on this list, the Burr Cut, can be done by most of you at home.

Start at the sideburns and buzz upwards, keeping against the grain.

Once you get to the back of the head, then work your way up through the crown.

Crew Cut Hairstyle

Military Crew Cut mens haircuts

A crew cut is a type of haircut in which the upright hair on the top of the head is cut relatively short.

However, the style graduates in length, from the longest hair that forms short pomp at the front hairline to the shortest, at the back of the crown.

As such, in the side profile, the outline of the top hair approaches the horizontal.

Regulation Cut Hairstyle

Regulation Cut mens haircuts

The regulation cut is one of the longer army haircuts you might see – James Bond is the perfect candidate to exemplify this hairstyle.

Built according to army haircut regulation, this style involves trimming the top down.

The sides are then tapered off completely, leaving it up to you to decide how much skin you want to be visible.

The cut has its perks: low maintenance, looks great, is very practical, and works in almost every environment.

Flat Top Haircut

Flat Top haircuts for men

Very popular in the 1950s, the flat top is also a short military-inspired haircut.

The hi-top fade is also commonly called a flat top or flattop, often sported by black men, given their suitable hair texture.

In simple terms, it is a variation of the military cut but with short sides and long or very long hair on the top.

Induction Cut Hairstyle

Induction Cut haircuts for men

The induction cut is the shortest possible hairstyle without shaving the head with a razor.

The style is so named as it is traditionally the first haircut given to new male recruits during initial entry into many of the world’s armed forces – particularly in the United States.

Ivy League Hairstyle

Ivy League mens haircuts

Like the crew cut, the Ivy league or Princeton haircut leaves enough hair on the top of the head to be parted or combed aside.

The ivy league haircut gives the face a defined appearance, making it best for men with solid cheekbones or a prominent jawline.

Brad Pitt is an excellent inspiration for this cut, sporting a popular style induction cut in Inglourious Basterds movie.

Military Buzz Haircut

Military Buzz haircuts for men

The typical buzz cut is buzzed to one length all over, with no transitions in length between the sides and back, and is used in the military because of its ease.

Initially, this hairstyle was used in the Army as ‘field sanitation,’ aiming to control body lice spread.

High and Tight Haircut

High and Tight haircuts for men

The high and tight is a military variant of the crew cut.

A very short hairstyle, the high and tight cut is characterized by the back and sides of the head shaved to the skin.

Then, the slightly longer hair on the top is blended (faded) in.


5. The Skater Haircuts

If you are into extreme biking or skating, you will find the classic skater haircut quite quintessential for you.

In general, with a medium length, all skater hairstyles and haircuts feature swoopy front bangs, styled to avoid covering the eyes.

Skater haircuts’ natural flow and shape allow men to wear helmets for a modern and edgy look.

Below are the most stylish and coolest long, medium, and short skater haircuts trending in 2021-2022.

Short Skater Hairstyle

Short Skater haircuts for men

This skater haircut is perfect for those who don’t want to stand out of the crowd but still wish to have a little zest in their style.

The zest is created by a short textured fringe, usually above the eyebrows.

Long Skater Hairstyle

Long Skater haircuts for men

An ideal haircut for thick and straight hair, this cut is often found in the surfing community.

The hair cascades down the neck and long hair strands are a must in this case.

Long Curl Skater Hairstyle

Long Curl Skater haircuts for men

This haircut is equivalent to an extreme sports lifestyle.

Whether you are a skater, blander, or a surfer, you know what it means to rock this messy, curly cut, potentially with side part or back style.

Undercut Skater Hairstyle

Undercut Skater haircuts for men

This is a fantastic look without much styling.

It works by getting the side-swept long, almost like a disconnected undercut.

The sides and back are cut short, up to the hairline with much longer hair on top.

80s Skater Hairstyle

80s Skater haircuts for men

The neat part about the 80’s skater haircut is a messy undercut designed to make you look young.

Try a clean shave and add a bit of hair styling product, especially if you have medium-length hair.

Although not suitable for people in business, 80’s skater haircuts work wonders for boys with straight, fine hair.

90s Skater Hairstyle

90s Skater haircuts for men

Ryan Sheckler has been one of the most influential skaters of the late 90s, sponsored to perform – unique for those times.

Since then, Ryan’s hairstyle has become a favorite among teenagers hoping to emulate his skills and success.

Dreadlocks

Dreadlocks skater haircuts for men

A signature haircut, dreadlocks are a hairstyle that manages to intrigue others thanks to a unique beauty.

Although around for decades, dreadlocks still garner loads of well-deserved attention.

From extra long to super short and everything in between, dreadlock styles for men run the gamut of styling possibilities.

Surfer Cut Hairstyle

Surfer Cut mens haircuts

Surfer’s hair falls into the category of ‘tousled hairstyles.’

Purposefully messy, cluttered, and untidy, the surfer’s cut isn’t a style that looks the part.

The haircut takes its name from the stereotype of a hardcore surfer whose hair has been bleached by the sun, soaked in salty sea waters, and receives minimal care.

Mullet-Mohawk Haircut

Mullet-Mohawk Skater haircuts for men

A fantastic haircut in the 80s, the Mullet Mohawk has made waves around the punk rock era.

The style returned in the 90s with an athletic twist since many footballers sported out.

Some use medium hold pomade, but I prefer shiny pomade (and a stubble beard) to create that bit of shine needed for this style.

Whether you hate or like it, you can’t deny the iconic look of this style.


6. The Spiky Haircuts

The spiky haircut has always conferred a youthful and energetic look.

Great if you don’t have particular job requirements or strict school hairstyle codes.

It is a fun, carefree style with an attitude that works with most hair types since it relies a lot on using hair products.

Spiky Fade Haircut

Spiky fade haircuts for men

The spiky fade is a shorter haircut that provides a fresher approach to the classic spiky style.

The hair is spiked forward and upward to create motion, and the mid fade draws the eye up to the spikes.

Spiky Taper Hairstyle


A sharper version of the classic spiky haircut, the classic spiky taper is longer on top and relatively simple to achieve.

Use quilty wax to pull the longer pieces upward and run the remainder through the shorter parts in an upwards motion.

I love how this haircut looks on dark hair styled with a matte hair product.

Long Spiky Cut Hairstyle

It’s all about texture when it comes to creating spiked looks for long hair.

If you have thick locks, rock a messy style by creating spikes with pomade and your hands.

If your hair is thin, be sure to wash it with a volumizing shampoo before blow-drying to add height and use a styling product to define your spikes.

Grey hair is excellent in the case of a textured crop, also working wonders with various facial hairstyles.

Spiky Faux Hawk Hairstyle

If you don’t want to go full mohawk, you can always choose a spiky faux hawk.

Just comb down the sides of your hair and secure with hairspray or gel before using wax to push the hair on top upwards to create your ‘hawk.

Spiky Pompadour Hairstyle

This is the best way to give the classic, smooth pompadour style a spiky edge.

The look is super easy to create if your hair features a substantial length on top.

To do so, start by using a comb and some pomade to create a usual pompadour.

But, before finishing and securing with hairspray, pull apart a few pieces and lightly twist to form peaks.

Single-Length Hairstyle for Men


Nowadays, every man and his dog has his hair shorter on the sides and longer at the top.

Thus, to stand out from the crowd, consider a single-length style.

Easier said than achieved, if properly done, the hair on the sides creates a very rugged and manly look.

Wavy Spiky Cut Hairstyle

Just because you have curly hair doesn’t mean you can’t still get in on the spiky trend.

Use some texturing powder in your roots, coat your fingertips in wax and spike only the top section of hair.

As curly hair can be heavy, it’s best to lightly cover your locks with a layer of stronghold hairspray to ensure it stays in place.

Spiky Windswept Haircut

Windswept spiky hair is easy to achieve and requires very low maintenance.

All you need to do is create your spikes as usual, but sweep them all to one side rather than straight up or backward.

Doing so will leave you with an effortless yet sharp look.


7. The Undercut Haircuts

An undercut hairstyle is traditionally known as a hairstyle in which the back or sides are shaven underneath the longer hair on top.

Undercuts may seem intimidating and a little risky on the surface.

However, if the style is cut well, it’s a real head turn-on.

Disconnected Undercut Hairstyle

The disconnected undercut works by getting the side-swept long, and the sides and back shaved up to the hairline.

Add a touch of product and pull hair to one side with a moveable pomade like wax or fiber for a loose look that keeps getting better as fingers are run through hair.

Slick Back Undercut Hairstyle

Like the disconnected undercut, the slicked back undercut is also a very famous men’s haircut.

In this instance, the sides of the hair are shaved off while the top of the hair is kept longer and worn brushed back.

Brushing right-back is critical here, compared to the disconnected undercut that in most cases is parted to the side.

Side Part Undercut Hairstyle

The side part undercut is the disconnected undercut presented above; however, the top is not that long and can be managed with ease.

Moreover, this is a style often used in a business context, given its clean (but not too military) look.

Blowout Undercut Hairstyle

The blowout haircut can have any length on top, often styled back with sides kept short and slowly tapered off around the temple region.

The style can vary quite a bit, mainly because the fade below the forehead characterizes this cut, hence its other name, the ‘temple fade.’

Temple Undercut Hairstyle


The temple undercut is more than just a call back to the early ’90s.

It is an exercise of individuality by incorporating the shapes of your temples in the final look of this unique hairstyle.

No two temple undercut fades are created equal and the only thing limiting the creativity of this cut is your imagination.

Fringe Undercut Hairstyle

There are quite a lot of different types of fringes (bangs) out there.

To choose the right fringe undercut for you, you need to consider the hair type, texture, and personal style.

If you consider a side-swept bangs hairstyle, your hair should be between 2 and 4 inches long.

Curly guys seeking a fringe undercut should allow front bangs to fall freely.

Curly Undercut Hairstyle

There’s no better way to emphasize your curls than a dedicated curtly undercut.

The sides and the back are faded away while retaining your long (or short) curls on top.

A consideration of the face shape is required before taking this cut.

Short Undercut Hairstyle

This great haircut re-made famous by Charlie Hunnam in his 2017 version of the Papillon movie is also one of the easiest to achieve.

The only requirement here is a strong jawline; otherwise, your face might look a bit round.

Long Undercut Hairstyle

Vikings. That’s what comes to mind when you talk about this hairstyle.

Most long undercut hairstyles for men marry together medium to long lengths with a type of buzzed haircut.

The buzzed cut is ranging from a subtle taper fade to something more daring, such as a patterned hair design.

The type of long undercut you go for will depend on many factors such as how you style your hair, or whether your hair is straight or has any natural waves or curls to it.

Pompadour Undercut Hairstyle

The pompadour undercut is a men’s haircut that combines the classic pompadour with a taper fade.

Pompadour undercuts have excellent short sides and long, high-volume hair on top.

A very versatile style, it looks excellent with beards for an extra crisp style.


8. The Butch Haircuts

Also known as brush cut, the butch cut is a short, uniform cut.

The hair is cut to the same length all around the head using clippers. It’s a part of the buzz cut family, along with cuts like the induction cut.

While the butch cut has gained popularity among athletes and the military, it works well for anyone who simply wants a no-fuss haircut.

If you like your hair short and want to achieve a clean look, then this style just might be for you.

Short Butch Haircut

The simplest of all, the Short Butch haircut is supposed to be even all the way around the head.

From this initial style, there are several variations emerging, like the Fade Butch and the Shave Line Butch, further presented below.

Long Butch Haircut

This is about a level three butch cut.

The top is cut in layers and styled upwards in a disorderly fashion.

The sides have a skin fade that elongates the face.

Also, if the butch cut grows out a little, push it to the side a bit and even add a tight fade in there to make it look super fancy.

Fade Butch Haircut

A butch cut can look a little monotonous if it’s the same all the time.

The fade butch cut adds a slight fade as well as some waves on the upper part.

Shaved Line Butch Haircut

This is the classic butch haircut with a shaved side-line.

Also, you can further upgrade this cut with a skin fade on the sides and a thick side part.


9. The Edgar Haircuts

Also called the Takuache hairstyle, the Edgar consists of a top cropped like a bowl and a straight line around the head.

The sides are high faded for contrast, and the top is textured or styled forward to create a wavy look.

Classic Edgar Haircut

The classic Edgar haircut is ideal for guys with short, thick hair.

It involves blending a high skin fade into a short Caesar cut.

Your barber will then trim the front to create a straight line across your forehead.

While neat and clean, the classic Edgar haircut still has an attitude and an edgy appeal due to its sharply-defined lines.

Wavy Edgar Haircut

While the classic Edgar works best on straight hair, a wavy Edgar allows you to show off your hair’s natural texture and has a more unique and unusual look.

The barber will still skin fade your hair at the sides but leave the top section longer to create an undercut effect.

Like the classic Edgar, your hair will be brushed forward and trimmed to create a straight line across your forehead.

Spiky Edgar Haircut

To give your Edgar cut an edgy look, try adding spiky texture to the top section of your hair with clay or pomade.

However, to maintain the Edgar cut’s signature straight fringe, leave the front of your hair smooth and product-free.

Maximize the impact of the short spiky Edgar haircut by pairing it with a less blended fade, creating a bold undercut effect that draws more attention to your hair.

Fade Edgar Haircut

For a sharper and more striking take on the Edgar haircut, pair it with a mid fade.

Doing so will create an interesting straight-line effect when viewed from the side.

It’s ideal for guys with medium-length straight hair who want to change their cut with an edgy and unusual look.


10. Curtain Haircuts

The curtain haircut is characterized by a long fringe parted in the middle or on the side.

Popularised in the ’90s by grunge bands such as Nirvana and Hollywood heartthrobs like Brad Pitt and Leonardo Dicaprio, this hairstyle is everywhere in 2021, popularized by K-pop celebrities.

However, in contrast to the earlier iterations of the hairstyle, the 2021 versions of curtain haircuts for men are much more versatile, lending to customization and personalization.

Short Curtain Hairstyle


Popularized by young Brad Pitt and Leonardo di Caprio, the short curtain with a sharp part down the middle looks particularly striking.

Additionally, teaming it with an undercut lets the hair sit flatter against the head.

For a very modern take, keep the ends super sharp and straight, and use some styling gel for a slick look.

Medium Curtain Hairstyle

Timothee Chalamet is one of the famous faces who sports a medium-length curly curtain hairstyle.

The good thing about this look is that it doesn’t need to be perfectly uniform.

Simply wash your hair and apply hair oil or a light gel through it to accentuate the curls.

Finish with some texturizing spray for a light hold.

Long Curtain Hairstyle

If you’re a gent with long, luscious, and even curly locks, there’s no better style for showing it off than the center-parted curtain hairstyle.

Make sure to regularly use nourishing hair treatments to reinforce and repair any damage to the hair strands.

You can still create this look with a flat iron or curling wand if you have long, straight hair.

Black Curtain Hairstyle

The short black curtain haircut is a look reminiscent of some of the bad boys of the 90s.

Think Kevin from the Backstreet Boys, Skeet Ulrich, and Robert Downey Jr.

To achieve this style, keep the back and sides shorter, but let the top grow to the middle of your ear.

Next, use a wet-look gel for that Peter-Andre-emerging-from-the-ocean look.

Finally, practice your sultry ‘blue steel’ look, and you’ve got this curtain hairstyle in the bag.

Messy Curtain Hairstyle

The messy curtain haircut is an excellent solution for guys who like a bit of adventure in life.

It shows off your rebellious side while still looking modern and attractive.

The location and precision of your part don’t matter as much with this style.

Just make sure to keep the length above the ear so you don’t accidentally look disheveled.

Curly Curtain Hairstyle

Gents with naturally curly hair will have to look after their curls to make this work.

If you curl your hair, make sure you use nourishing hair treatments to reinforce and repair any damage to the hair strands.

Wavy Curtain Hairstyle

A medium-length wavy curtain haircut adds an air of brooding mystery.

Channel your inner monster-hunting, demon-killing Sam Winchester from Supernatural for this look.

The key to pulling off this style is not to let your hair get too dirty and greasy, so wash those locks regularly.

You can add texture and movement with some sea salt spray.

Straight Curtain Hairstyle

During the 1990s, the curtain haircut looked great on people who had fine, straight hair.

This hair tone works well because it emphasizes the substantial part in the middle that defines the curtain hairstyle.

Nowadays, there’s no need to have fine hair to wear this hairstyle, so you’re welcome to give it a try.
