Want to look your best, but not too thrilled about the idea of spending too much time getting there? Well, you don’t have to! And the key is choosing low maintenance haircuts that you barely even have to touch to look good (how lucky are you men?) Short cuts are always the easiest to rock, some don’t even require brushing—you can go about your day as soon as you step out of the shower, forget you even have hair! If you’re a busy person who always has to be out the door in five minutes, you’ve come to the right place because we’ve got the best haircuts for men that meet your requirements!
Best haircuts for men on the go
1. Buzz cut
Nothing could be less complicated than this! A buzz cut is a closely shaven style which requires nothing other than probably just a drop of shampoo. It’s fresh and clean and also very masculine. It’s perfect for an oval face shape, while those with more rounded features should take caution as it barely covers anything, making the roundness of the face too obvious.
Editor’s tip: If you’re sporting a buzz cut, make sure you don’t have dandruff because it can be easily seen, and it’s not very attractive. Shampoo with Clear Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men to keep flakes at bay. It’s Formulated with Bio-Nutrium 10, which activates the scalp’s natural protection layer, making it resistant to the root cause. It also has cooling mint that gives your head a nice, cool sensation so it feels fresh and clean.
2. Crew cut
The crew cut is characterized by upright hair on the top of the head (with the length of about an inch), longer at the front and shorter at the back, and tapered on the back and sides. It’s a fuss-free classic cut that never goes out of style.
Here’s a more trendy haircut that’s also ideal for men who don’t have the patience to stand in front of the mirror every morning for more than two minutes. The fade haircut has a lot of different variations featuring different lengths, but since you want quick and easy, ask your barber for a short fade cut. A fade is defined by hair that goes from one length to another. It starts off long at the top and gets shorter on the sides and the lower back.
4. Comb back
If you want to keep your locks a bit longer, this is an ideal style that won’t pin you down for more than five minutes. Just take a coin size amount of hair wax (we recommend TONI&GUY Mattifying Putty for Men), rub your hands together and rake it through your hair. Grab a comb and neatly bring your hair towards the back of your head. Easy enough, yeah?
5. Short & side parted
Here’s another long-ish style making it to our list. It’s one of the best haircuts for men (on the go or not) because not only is it low maintenance, it’s also very versatile. It can take you from casual days to more formal affairs with very little styling: just create a side part, apply hair wax to keep the look polished, and maybe blow dry quickly. It also looks perfect on everyone.
