The hard part haircut, also known as a shaved part or line in haircut, is an expansion of the side part hairstyle trend. The hard part is a shaved line in the scalp that provides definition and contrast for an edgy look. For this reason, hard part hairstyles for men are modern, cool, and versatile. Between a hard part fade and an undercut with a shaved line on the side, hard part styles work with any number of different cuts.

How To Cut A Hard Part Haircut
Unlike other haircuts, we don’t recommend you do a hard part at home. Cutting a hard part requires a sharp razor and the ability to cut a straight line all the way down to the scalp. One false move and you may be forced to buzz all your hair off. Instead, we highly recommend you ask your barber to cut a hard part into your hair.
Generally, this means telling your barber about the new hairstyle you want to get and then requesting a hard part line be shaved in. Most guys choose to combine a line in their hair with a fade or undercut on the sides. The hard part fade has been a stylish trend in barbershops for years, especially as part of modern short sides, long top haircuts that need contrast to accentuate the styling.
Because parted styles are flexible, they look good with all lengths of hair – short, medium, or long. Similarly, some men like to get a line in their thick, wavy or curly hair to help them find their natural part.
Best Hard Part Haircuts 2018
Here are the best men’s hard part haircuts of 2018. If you want to envision how you want your line to look, these cuts and styles will inspire you. We’ve included some awesome haircuts with lines on the sides as well to give you the option of getting creative with your hard part, especially if you want the hardline to be somewhere other than your hair’s natural part.
Hard Part Fade
A fade with a hard part is one of the top ways to get this cut. With so many different types of fades – high, mid, low, skin, and taper – guys have a variety of options. Here, we have an example of a low bald fade, a shaved line part on the sides, and a messy texture style on top. Coupled with a stubble beard and some highlights, this sexy men’s hairstyle gets your attention.
Undercut Hard Part
An undercut with a hard part is an excellent alternative to the classic fade haircut. This undercut hard part provides the necessary contrast to focus your eyes on the spiky hairstyle on top. The sweet thing about this style is that guys can change the look any time by simply combing over or slicking back their hair.
