Most Popular Haircuts and Hairstyles for Men
1. Textured crop
Who doesn’t know the textured crop hairstyle for men? Anyone who wants to look stylish yet cool goes for this haircut. The most distinguishing feature of this hairstyle is that its sides and back are lowered and made shorter than the top. The top is textured, but that is left for the barber to handle. It never goes out of style. You should try it.
The quiff haircut makes every man look amazing with a bit of sexiness. This is one hairstyle that has kept evolving over the years till date. A neat quiff can be stylish and still give you the gentlemanly look that you deserve, but it might be a little difficult to maintain especially for the modern quiff style, that’s why you need the best hair products to maintain it.
Just similar to a quiff, a pompadour has short sides and a long top, but the main difference is that the pompadour reduces in length from the front to the back. This hairstyle is timeless, and it continues to reappear in the fashion trend of male hairstyles yearly.
4. Comb over
The comb-over haircut could be a neat slick back or a curly brush-over. It could be brushed to the side with a side part. Whichever way you style it, it remains an amazing hairstyle that could fit any guy either Donald Trump or Justin Timberlake.
5. Taper haircut
The taper haircut hasn’t gone out of style even in this time. The taper fades hair at the neck and side but leaves a defined arch behind the ear. Tapers can also be low, mid, and high, but they always have a defined arch which differentiates them from fade haircut
6. Crew cut
A crew cut is a good option if you’re looking for a balanced and mature appearance. The crew cut is a simple hairstyle with the top of the head trimmed short, and everything else even shorter. It works well on all sorts of face shapes, which is why it never gets out of style. It can give you that real and mature gentleman look.
The Fringe is not just a female hairstyle, even dudes too look good on fringes. Men’s Fringes range from short fringes, curly long fringes, and angular fringes, to high volume fringes. It remains one of the most popular hairstyles for modern men transitioning into different styles over the years.
8. Slicked back with side part
The slick back hairstyle is a polished and timeless cut for the professional man who takes pride in his appearance. An added side part is styled, slicked, and creates an easy to achieve, groomed look. All you’ll need is a comb and high shine product withhold. This is a highly attractive hairstyle and continues to win the heart of modern-day men.
9. Dyed hair
Most men prefer to change the color of their hair despite the style of Haircut. When that happens, it becomes a different style from the undyed style of the same haircut. The dye could be any color. While many go for gold, black, red, violet, and green others choose white, brown, or a mixture of many colors.
A fade blurs the edges of hair around the sides and back of the head. No matter the length of the top of the hair, the uniqueness remains that a different neckline is created from the natural neckline. Fade never comes alone, it goes with quiff, pompadour, slick back, and so on.
11. Curly hairstyle
All haircuts can be made more stylish by adding curls. In recent times, all I see around me are guys with curly hair. Though some appear naturally, others are the handwork of a good barber. Whether you have an Afro, fringes, long hair, or short hair, add some curls to it and get ready for unending compliments.
12. Spiky hair
Spiky hairs don’t sleep on the scalp. They stand like spikes. But that is the beauty. Having spike-like top hair with short sides can’t be less adorable. This Hairstyle never grows old and yet looks good on anyone who wears it.
This is one of the best and easiest haircuts that you can give yourself. The haircut is achieved by simply buzzing the sides and the back at one length and then letting the top go with a longer hair length. The top can be curled, slicked back, textured, fringed or spiked.
14. Side part
What an amazing style of hair any dude will love! A side part can be made with a comb. A clipper could also be used to make a side hard part. Whether to a quiff, a pompadour, slicked back hair, or even a spiky hairstyle the side part is sure to make it more admirable.
Most people choose not to barb their hair, instead, they carry them locked as dreads. You see most African men on dreadlocks. It is most popular in Africa. So many African tribes have different kinds of beliefs attached to dreadlocks. To some, it signifies strength, spiritual power, a gifted child, and so on, but to others, it is just a desired lovely hairstyle. If you want to consider locking your hair, bear in mind that it requires cool time and proper maintenance, else you will have lice to contend with.
16. High and Tight haircut
The high and tight haircut is used by mostly military men. College boys also wear this hairstyle because it is simple and okay. A considerable amount of hair is left on the top of the head, but while coming down behind and by the side, the hair is cut clean. Zero to meager maintenance is needed for this hairstyle.
17. Short Afro
For black men, Short Afro has been one of their most regular haircuts. Giving them back a low cut and leaving the top a bit higher can give the best vibe to an African man. The hairstyle looks good and costs not much for maintenance.
18. short and messy
Many guys are in the category of not caring what anyone thinks. If you’re in this category, then this men’s hairstyle is for you. The barber tries to style the hair to look messy, but it doesn’t mean the hair is messy. That’s just the style. The messy hair is all around with some falling towards the back. It is a fine hairstyle but needs a lot of maintenance before it gets genuinely messy.
One of the trendy, stylish, and popular ways to style your long hair is to take half up. It gives you a sexy appearance and with nice beards, you will look irresistible. Regular combing and trimming will always keep the hair in good shape.
20. 360 waves
This is a low cut with outstanding sporty waves. To some, this wave appears naturally, but to others, much hair care equipment and solutions are used to acquire it. Seeing the waves run 360 on the head is eye-catching and it gives a neat and responsible appearance to whoever carries it.
21. Hard part with a curly quiff
Having a hard part on a quiff gives a different Outlook from the regular non-parted quiff. A hard part is a barber parting the hair with a line using his clippers or razor not just parting with a brush. A curly quiff with a hard part sets you in the partying and rock and roll mood. Teens like the style, but guys in their 20s and early 30s like it more.
22. Clean shave
Who else likes a clean shave like me? It not only looks good, but it also boosts your overall outlook. Though some men don’t like it because it exposes the shape of the skull, but for a bald head, it is the best option. A clean shave doesn’t cost much to maintain and it is very relaxing and comfortable.
23. Disheveled hairstyle
Messy, curly but fine. It is very popular among men with long hair who do not want to be seen as all tush. You can wear this hairstyle all around. It is just what you need. Not so high in maintenance, but can be a little uncomfortable.

You can let your hair be. Stretch it to be long and straight and let it fall behind and rest on your back. Women are more commonly seen with this hairstyle than men, but it is still popular amongst men. Using good products for the hair will make it finer.
Sweet name, isn’t it? Sweet name for a sweet hairstyle. Surprisingly, most men do the same hairstyle as their daughters, but that’s cute. It makes them look amazing. The popular ponytail hairstyle we know among the female gender is also one for the male. Highly attractive, easy to make, and maintain.
26. Buzz cut with a line-up
The buzz cut is a low cut with unequal length. The front hair, though low, is always higher than the rest of the head. It’s a clean haircut embraced by guys who don’t like many styles on their heads but take pride in simplicity. Requires zero maintenance and is very breathable. Make your hair more detailed with a four-corner front line up, and a hard part.

A different fade design, a different look. A burst fade is rounded and rises more behind the ear. It is sometimes lined to make it more detailed and neat. If you’re looking for a good hairstyle to keep all eyes on you, try out the burst fade and thank me later.
You could say a mullet is an old-fashioned hairstyle, but that’s not true. To date, many men still prefer it to be on the mullet hairstyle.
