Asian men are known for their straight hair and ability to rock just about any hairstyle, whether it’s a fade, undercut, slick back, comb over, top knot, man bun, side part, crew cut or angular fringe. From modern short hairstyles to trendy medium and long hairstyles, the best Asian haircuts offer versatility, texture and volume. It may just be their type of hair that allows them the flexibility to style all these cool haircuts for Asian men or their willingness to be outgoing and fashion-forward, but Asian guys certainly have some awesome hairstyles.
A fashionable culture is certainly the case for Korean hairstyles, which are heavily influenced by K-Pop stars.

Whatever the reason, we felt it was important to dedicate an entire page to trendy Asian men hairstyles and haircuts.
