A buzz cut is one of the go-to looks for men when you’re looking for something presko and easy-to-maintain. For this kalbo hairstyle, all you need to do is to keep your scalp dandruff-free so white flakes wouldn’t dampen your style.

Editor’s tip: Keep your scalp fresh and dandruff-free by using CLEAR Cool Sport Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. It is formulated with Bio-Nutrium 10 that activates your scalp’s natural protective layer, giving you fighting power against dandruff. 

2. High and Tight

This kalbo hairstyle is much like the undercut but with less hair on top. You can do this yourself if you have your own clippers. Simply use a #1 or #2 guard in clipping the back and sides of your head, and go for a guard two sizes up for your top hair.

Editor’s tip: Nail this short hairstyle with a clean and dandruff-free scalp. Use CLEAR Deep Cleanse Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. to effectively remove product residue and excess oil from your scalp and protect it from dandruff.

3. Skinhead

The skinhead is the father of the kalbo hairstyles because it is the shortest of all buzz cuts. Like most other types of buzz cuts, you can achieve this hairstyle right in the comfort of your own home using clippers without a guard. In fact, you can create an even shorter cut by using a regular straight razor.

4. Burr Cut

If you’re not too comfortable with the skinhead, then you can opt for the burr cut, which is slightly longer and thicker. The idea of this haircut is having even lengths on your sides, top, and back hair. Tell your barber to use clippers set on #1, #2, or #3 guard, depending on your desired length. Pair this look up with your desired beard style for that perfect macho look.

5. Butch Cut

The thin haircut is ideal for men with thinning hair and receding hairline. It helps disguise your not-so-full hair and gives you a more youthful look. Add a bit of drama to your hair by coloring it with something uncommon like reddish and light brown hues.

Editor’s tip: Protect your hair from falling and breaking by using Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo. It strengthens your hair and helps it grow uninterrupted to avoid weak and brittle strands.

7. Mohawk Hairstyle

This may not be a totally kalbo hairstyle, but the shaved sides give it the same vibe. The mohawk hairstyle has a longer and thicker hair on top. You can choose to do either a regular fade or taper fade on the sides, then add any hair color you want as a finishing touch.

8. Faded Sides with a Thick Top

The appeal of this hairstyle is in the gradual thinning or fading of your hair at the sides that contrasts the relatively thick top hair. Although it’s very popular among military servicemen, you don’t have to be a man in uniform to wear this hairstyle.

Editor’s tip: Show off your healthy scalp by washing regularly with CLEAR Ice Cool Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. It has Nutrium 10 that activates the natural protective layer of your scalp to avoid itching, irritation, and dandruff.
