This low-maintenance style requires next to no styling, so we can totally see the appeal. To help give you some inspiration, we’ve put together some of our favorite styles below.
Buzz Cut Styles We Love
1. Classic Buzz Cut
An Asian buzz cut features even length all throughout your head. It can also help disguise thinning hair or a receding hairline.
Editor’s tip: Keep your short hair clean and fresh by washing it with Dove Men + Care Refreshing Clean Shampoo. It deeply cleanses your scalp while leaving it cool and fresh. It’s great for everyday use.
2. Induction Cut
This haircut is named as such because when men enter the military, they need to shave their heads this way; hence, the name “induction.” This low-maintenance haircut also has a gentlemanly appeal, and you can wear it whether you’re a man in uniform or not.
Editor’s tip: Don’t let flakes show up on your scalp. Use CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men regularly. It has Bio-Nutrium 10 that activates your scalp’s natural protective layer to help you fight and prevent dandruff. It also leaves your scalp cool and fresh.
3. Burr Buzz Cut
This style has a bit more hair, but it dries naturally in no time at all. It’s also short enough that you can skip the styling products.
4. Brush Cut
While buzz cuts are often worn as the shortest hair length, that’s not always the case. You can still pull off this style with a #1, #2, or even #3 clipper attachment length if you don’t want a super close shave.
5. Butch Haircut
Prefer to keep a little length, but still rock a zero-styling haircut? Then this slightly longer version of an Asian buzz cut is the way to go.
6. Buzz Cut With a Beard
Rocking a beard? If you are, you’ll be pleased to hear that beards and buzz cuts make for the perfect partnership!
Opt for a super short length, and all the attention will be on your facial features.
8. With Fade
Incorporating a fade is a great way to hold on to a bit more length up top, with soft graduation at the sides.
