Cool European Haircuts For Men
The pompadour might be named after Madame de Pompadour, making the pomp a decidedly European hairstyle, but the hairdo didn’t take off until the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, sported the look. Formerly a female hairstyle, the pompadour has become one of the trendiest hairstyles for men. A traditional pompadour is worn with short sides, as the hair is swept upwards and backwards. Today, there are a variety of pompadour hairstyles to try out, ranging from classic, angular, extreme, and modern cuts.
The Quiff Hairstyle
If you’re not ready to fully embrace the pompadour, tease the look by trying out the more versatile quiff instead. Whether it’s the short and spiky quiff, long and textured quiff, or the voluminous messy version, there’s a quiff style for everyone. No matter the varied sizes of the back and sides, they should always be kept shorter than the front to emphasize contrast.
The Fade Haircut
A popular hairstyle choice for men has always been the taper fade. Men who preferred short hair were usually the demographic of choice, but today, fade haircuts are being embraced by men of all hair lengths and styles. There are plenty of directions to take the fade haircut: high bald fade, low skin fade, burst drop fade, comb over fade, disconnected fade and more.
Slicked Back Hair
There’s no better way to look sleek than with a slicked back haircut. The modern slick back involves keeping the sides and back of your head in an undercut or high fade haircut, while the top has enough length to “slick back” with pomade. The hairstyle may date back to American greaser culture, but modern men are taking the slick back in bold new directions.
If the modern pomp, quiff, and slick back didn’t inspire you, here are a few more Euro hair styles that may better fit you!
