The men’s fringe, also known as men’s bangs, has emerged as a cool short haircut for guys this year. Put simply, fringe hairstyles allow a guy’s hair to fall over his forehead – whether it lays flat like bangs or has volume is a personal choice. Interestingly, men’s hairstyles with bangs sit in stark contrast to many of today’s popular modern styles. Haircuts like the pompadour, quiff, faux hawk and comb over feature hair styled away from the face; however, the benefit of getting a fringe is that it works with straight, wavy, or curly hair.
If you’re thinking about trying a short or long fringe with an undercut or fade, you’ll want to check out this guide to men’s hair with bangs.

What Is The Men’s Fringe?
The men’s fringe refers to any hairstyle where the sides are cut short and the hair on top is styled to hang over the forehead. Furthermore, stylish haircuts with bangs can come in a variety of styles depending on how you want your hair to look. From voluminous, curly bangs to a thick, straight fringe, there’s a way for everyone to rock the look.
And since male bangs only require hair long enough to cover your forehead, the fringe leaves a lot of freedom on how to cut the sides and top of your hair. You can combine the look with faded sides to get a fringe undercut or even texture the top of your hair with a cropped fringe to get a French crop.
For those with straight hair, a trendy option to try is the angular fringe haircut, a type of side swept fringe. This style features hair that has been cut at an angle and then swept to the side to create an angled, edgy look.
Finally, the fringe is particularly appropriate for guys with large foreheads or long face shapes. If you have a rectangular or oblong face, the fringe will appear to shorten your face length. As always, it’s important to choose a hairstyle according to face shape.
How to Get and Style The Fringe Haircut
Getting a fringe haircut depends on your hair type, texture, and style. To style a straight or side-swept, angular fringe, you’ll need at least 2 to 4 inches of hair in the front and your stylist will need to cut your bangs at an angle for the latter. For the sides, you can get an undercut or any type of fade, including a high or low taper fade. Ideally, we recommend showing your barber a picture of how you plan to style your hair.
To style a men’s fringe, guys with curly hair don’t have to do much – just let your curls fall naturally in front. For a more formal or textured look, styling the fringe requires that you apply some pomade or wax and comb the hair forward.
In general, fringe hairstyles aren’t complex – your hair will do most of the work for you. This is certainly one of the advantages of this simple yet trendy new look.
