If you’ve always had the popular barber’s cut for a long time, it’s time to get a new short haircut for men. Try the two-block haircut. It 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 short haircut for men is a popular look among K-pop stars, so if you have them as style pegs, try this ‘do.

6. High Fade Haircut

The pompadour is originally a woman’s hairstyle named after Madame de Pompadour, lover of King Louis XV (monarchy drama, let’s leave it at that). Enter Elvis Presley who copped the hairstyle and owned it, and well, the rest is history.

The pomp has 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 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, the pompadour is an excellent choice.

8. Easy Comb Over

9. Curly, Medium-Length Hair for Men

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. To style, scrunch it while applying gel for added shine.

10. Disconnected Undercut

Digging the messy look? Nail it with natural curls. Use your fingers to detangle and scrunch your hair, then apply matte putty to your hair for texture.

12. 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.

13. Quiff Hairstyle for Men

The quiff is quite similar to a pompadour hairstyle. It’s 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. Unlike the pompadour, the quiff can be styled messy or worn straight and neatly brushed up. The pompadour, on the other hand, is usually really glossy and very precise. Keep your sides shaved to make your quiff more updated.

14. Straight and Brushed Back

This simple hairstyle for men highlights faded or shaved sides. It’s also easy to do. Just brush your hair backward while blow-drying it. Then, finish with gel or pomade to keep your hair in place.

Dove Men + Care Refreshing Clean Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Make sure to wash your hair at the end of the day to remove product residue. Use Dove Men + Care Refreshing Clean Shampoo, which cleanses your hair deeply and gets rid of dirt, grease, and product buildup. It also has caffeine and menthol to leave you refreshed and energized after washing your hair.

15. Long Top

Why not try this long-top hairstyle and ask your barber to make your sides a little thinner? It’s a flattering hairstyle for men with round faces.

To create this ‘do, comb the top part of your hair toward your forehead to emphasize its length. Pair this hairstyle with a side part so you can rock a side-swept fringe.

16. 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.

So, if you don’t have the time to even pick up a comb in the morning, this haircut for men is perfect for you.

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 blow-drying this area of your hair.
