Best Haircuts For Men
This is the ultimate guide to the best haircuts and hairstyles for men in 2018. If you want to see what cuts and styles are new and trending, then you’ll love the cool popular men’s haircuts below.
As we’ve been saying all year, guys should focus on short to medium length hair, and style their look with a good matte pomade or wax for a textured finish. But this doesn’t mean you have to ditch your look altogether.
Start small by converting a brush back to a slick back or a buzz cut to a crop top. Even subtle changes to your style can make all the difference. Or you can go all in with by dying your hair white or silver for a drastic makeover.
Although there aren’t any breathtaking new trends emerging, there’s a fresh cut for every face shape and hair type. So whether you have curly, thick, fine or straight hair, we promise you’ll find a good hairstyle for you.
Let’s review the latest haircut styles to ask your barber for this new year!
Modern Undercut + Shape Up + Thick Comb Over
The undercut and its variations have been the look to have in recent years. The high-contrast short style keeps your sides looking neat and clean, while the top flaunts your long locks. To clean up the hair around your hair line, ask for a shape up.
Faux Hawk (Fohawk) with High Burst Fade
Cool Low Taper Fade with Messy Spiky Hair
Designs and lines are a trendy way to make your short hair stand out. If you’re interested in exploring more hair art, be sure to check out some of our haircut design ideas. Otherwise, this spiked hairstyle paired with a fresh low fade offers an awesome style for young guys!
Long Flowing Wavy Hair Brushed Back
Men with wavy hair may feel limited in a world where many of the best hairstyles are catered to men with straight hair, but this brushed back style is the perfect example of how one should wear wavy styles. Taper the back and sides for a contrasting style that brings attention to your hair up top.
Pompadour with High Taper Fade
The pompadour has surged back into the limelight since first growing to prominence in the 60’s. While the pomp is a little bit more on the high-maintenance side as a medium length hairstyle, if you pair it with an undercut (aka really short sides) you can also experiment with popular men’s undercut styles.
Long Curly Fringe with Fade and Hair Design
Another great option for men with curly hair is the fringe hairstyle. Also referred to as man bangs, the fringe is ideal for, but not limited to, men with long faces as it works to shorten the length of the face.
Undercut with Top Knot
The top knot is one option for men with an undercut. Simply run your hands through your hair from front to back and use a hair band to tie your hair up.
Quiff with High Fade and Shape Up
This high fade and line up looks sexy with a modern textured quiff. Similarly, pairing hairstyles with a trendy beard has been a popular option for men. Consider a beard fade to go along with your faded sides to make the transition seamless.
Spiky Hair with Taper Fade
Classic Side Part with High Bald Fade
Fade with Messy Hair and Brush Up
If you want your hairstyle to appear effortless then opt for a messy look. You can achieve this by styling your hair with your hands. On the flip side, the brush up can also be combed for a neater look.
Fringe with Disconnected Hard Part and Low Skin Fade
High Taper Fade with Long Slicked Back Hair
Just like the pompadour, the slick back has made a comeback into men’s fashion. This is an incredibly sleek look and is perfect for men with straight hair. Work some pomade into your hair and comb it straight back or at an angle to keep your hair in place.
Thick Hair on Top with Mid Skin Fade and Part
Volume on top is in vogue right now and the brush up is great look for getting hair out of your face.
Drop Fade with Curly Hair
Buzz Cut with Skin Fade and Beard
Bald Undercut with Pompadour
Short Sides with Messy Wavy Crew Cut
Medium Length Comb Over with Low Taper Fade
High Skin Fade with Comb Over and Hard Part
The angled comb over here is a modern take on the typical style. Here, a hard part is trimmed into the top of the hair to create an obvious division of hair.
