Your Ultimate Guide to Popular Hairstyles for Men
1. Two-Block Haircut
This haircut for men features a long top and shaved sides and back. The shaved portions are not as short as those of the undercut. With a two-block haircut, your hair at the back falls just above your nape while the sides fall just above your ears. This haircut is a popular look among KPop stars, so if you have them as style pegs, consider trying out this haircut.
Editor’s tip: Don’t let dandruff ruin your style. Make sure your hair is dandruff-free with CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. It helps activate your scalp’s natural protective layer so you’re better protected against dandruff. It also has cooling mint that leaves your scalp feeling fresh.
The pompadour is originally a woman’s haircut named after Madame de Pompadour, mistress of King Louis XV (monarchy drama, let’s leave it at that). Enter Elvis who copped the hairstyle and owned it, and well, the rest is literally history. The pomp is characterized by short sides and a long top, which is swept up and back over the head. It’s super stylish and sophisticated but it’s also high maintenance—you need regular trims and you can’t just shower and go, it has to be styled. If you don’t mind allotting some time to style your hair in the morning, this ‘do is an excellent choice.
Editor’s tip: Nail your pompadour hairstyle with the help of Axe Ice Chill Pomade. It lets you shape your hair while giving it a firm hold.
The quiff is quite similar to a pompadour hairstyle. It’s actually a combination of the pomp, the flat-top and the mohawk. It features short sides and back and longer hair on top that‘s brought upward and backward. It’s different from the pompadour in that it can be styled messy and tousled or worn straight and neatly brushed back, while the pompadour is usually really glossy and very precise. You can also tone down on the volume if you want to make your quiff more updated.
4. French Crop
This haircut for men features longer hair in front that’s styled like a fringe. You can get shaved sides or faded sides to go with your French crop, or an undercut if you want to highlight your fringe.
Editor’s tip: Get stronger hair by washing it with Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo. It is infused with Trichazole Actives and caffeine that help fortify your strands so your hair grows uninterrupted by hair fall. It gives you healthy-looking and stronger hair.
The fade is one of the trendy hairstyles for men that start off long at the top and gets shorter on the sides and the lower back. The hair creates a seamless blend as it goes from one length to the other.
6. Side-Parted Wavy Hairstyle for Men
Wavy hair sometimes seems to have a life of its own. Knowing how to style it, though, can make a big difference. You can start by putting a small amount of pomade or gel on your hair to make it easier to manage and control. Then, comb it to one side or use your fingers to direct your hair. If you want some waves but your hair is straight, you can make some by curling the tips of your hair using a flat iron.
7. Easy Comb Over
Look smart and dapper with this hairstyle. The easy comb over is simple and easy to achieve. Just comb your hair over to one side, style with wax or putty, and you’re all set.
8. Long Top
There are so many hairstyles for men to choose from now and people continue to experiment with newer ones. Why not try this long top hairstyle and ask your barber to make your sides a little thinner? And when styling it, comb the top part of your hair toward your forehead to emphasize its length.
9. Straight and Brushed Back
This is another hairstyle you can do if you have faded or shaved sides. Just brush your hair backwards while blow-drying it, then keep your hair in place with gel or pomade. That’s it!
Editor’s tip: Dealing with dandruff and hair fall? Use Dove Men + Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, which has AD zinc that helps fight dandruff and caffeine that helps make your hair stronger.
10. Medium Curly Hair
You don’t have to straighten or hide your curls. They make your hair you and add personality to your look. Just keep your curly hair at a manageable length, scrunch your hair while applying gel for added shine, and you’re all set.
Editor’s tip: Style your curly hair with VO5 Mega Hold Styling Gel. It helps give your curls some shine and definition. It also helps make your hairstyle last even in high humidity.
11. Disconnected Undercut
Featuring sides and back that are shaved close to the head and a top section of hair that is longer in length, the undercut is a versatile and stylish cut that you can style in different ways. You can style the longer top section slicked back, side-parted, messy, in a ponytail, or up in a man bun.
12. Buzz Cut
For a no-fuss, effortless hairstyle, you’ve got the classic buzz cut. Buzz cut is a super short style that has all of your hair closely shaven. It’s literally a wash-and-wear style because you don’t have to do anything with your hair other than wash it, so if you don’t have the patience to even pick up a comb, this is perfect for you.
13. Crew Cut
The crew cut is one of the classic short hairstyles for men. It’s tapered on the back and the sides, with the top about an inch long. It’s also a very short haircut that doesn’t require a lot of styling, making it a perfect cut for men-on-the-go.
14. Ivy League
The Ivy League haircut is a smart and sophisticated look for men. It’s basically a combination of the crew cut and a side-part hairstyle, where the sides are kept short while the front is left long enough for you to brush it to the side. This versatile squeaky clean cut can take you from workdays to weekends. It’s clean and smart, and it has a youthful vibe to it.
15. Korean Wavy Hairstyle
You know how K-pop has invaded the Philippines and almost everyone is going ga-ga over the Korean hairstyles, including men! Well, you too can achieve this Korean wavy hairstyle, especially if your hair is long or medium-length.
16. Korean Comma Hairstyle
If you want to cover a part of your forehead, try the Korean comma hairstyle. It’s great for men with short or medium-length thick hair. Naturals waves help add texture and volume, but if your hair is straight, you can create waves using a flat iron or a curling iron. The most important part of creating this hairstyle for men is to take a section of hair in front and create a comma shape by clamping it using your flat iron. Then, spritz some hairspray to make it stay in place.
17. Messy Side Part
Even men can wear a messy hairstyle. To achieve this ‘do, you can simply scrunch and style your hair with your fingers. It’s a great way to look stylish on weekends when you want a break from super polished hairstyles.
18. Curtain Hairstyle
This hairstyle was popular in the ’90s (also known as the kachupoy hairstyle), but it doesn’t mean you can’t bring it back. If your hair has a natural center part, just go with it when sporting this ‘do. Then, play up the volume on your roots by scrunching your hair or blow-drying it.
19. Long and Flat Top
If you’re looking for a clean haircut that isn’t really short, then, this long and flat top hair is all you need. It is long enough to still style but with sides that are thin and clean. You can even style the long top part into a quiff on your off days to exude a relaxed vibe.
20. Samurai Bun
More and more men like growing their hair long not just for a change but to also style them in different ways. That’s not vanity but learning to go with trends and styles. If your hair is long enough to put up in a bun, then, you should try the samurai bun which exudes masculinity from every angle. It’s simple to do and works best when styled the messy way. Best of all, you don’t have to be Japanese to wear this hairstyle!
21. Sleek Man Bun
Aside from the Samurai Bun, we also highly recommend this sleek man bun which is a more ‘formal’ hairstyle for men with long hair. It’s sleek, so your hair is well-kept and looks clean. Unlike the samurai bun, this hair is basically an undercut with long top hair. And to achieve the sleek finish, you can add a few drops of hair serum. Otherwise, you can also keep it matte for a more unique finish.
22. Messy with a Deep Side-part
This hairstyle is highly recommended if you’re trying to grow out your short hair which tends to be messy and flies in all directions. You can keep that discreet by actually styling it the messy way! Part it deep at the side and bring all of your hair to one side.
23. Fade Haircut with Beard
Wanna grow a beard for a change? Pair it with a fade haircut so your beard and hair don’t overwhelm your face.
24. Bowl Cut
This edgy and high-fashion haircut features a front section that’s cut on eyebrow level (or slightly longer). This length continues to the sides and back. You can blow-dry your hair straight and wear the bowl cut in a structured way, or you can add texture to give it a fresh take.
25. Textured Curly Hair
Got natural curls? Complement them with a two-block haircut and style your hair with a small amount of putty. Scrunch your hair to create a textured look.
Now that you know these hairstyles and haircuts for men, you’re ready to explore a new look. Which one is your favorite?
