A faded haircut with short sides and back while your wavy locks are left a bit longer on top is one sleek way to wear a haircut for men with wavy hair. Tapered, crop, undercut, faux hawk, maybe even add some fringe, this haircut category greatly accentuates your waves while keeping a neat and polished look.

Editor’s tip: Add a neat, matte finish to your hair by scrunching your short waves and styling them with VO5 Matt Clay. 

2. Tousled Top

You can also make the top part of your wavy hair textured and tousled. It still looks smart and dapper for a corporate setting but also spells “ready to go out and have fun.”

3. Tousled Waves with Undercut

This is another trendy way to wear a wavy haircut for men. Style your waves and keep them forward-swept with the help of hair gel while maintaining a clean undercut at the sides.

Editor’s tip: Looking for the perfect hair gel to nail this ‘do? Try VO5 Mega Hold Styling Gel. It gives you control over your hair so you can shape it and create various hairstyles. It even has Aquascreen™ to help make your ‘do last long even in high humidity.

4. Mid-length waves

Unlike the first category, this look keeps your waves longer at the back. A layered haircut can help distribute volume on your hair so your wavy haircut stays well-maintained.

CLEAR Ice Cool Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

Editor’s tip: If you want to keep your scalp feeling fresh all day, use CLEAR Ice Cool Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. It helps prevent dandruff while helping preserve that presko, shower-fresh feeling, thanks to its menthol formulation.

5. Side-parted Haircut

Got thin, wavy hair? A side-part haircut can help give the illusion of fuller-looking hair. Then, you can simply scrunch it to style. It’s easy and low-maintenance, don’t you agree?

6. Surfer Hair
