These male celebs are bringing back the buzz cut hair trend and we love it

Could this be the end of the man bun?!  

Thanks to the likes of long-haired A-listers such as Harry Styles and Jared Leto, we’ve seen more and more men growing out their hair over the past few years. However, it seems that this long hair trend is set to change, because we’ve already spotted some of our favourite male celebs ditching their long locks for shaved buzz cuts.

This low maintenance style requires next to no styling, so we can totally see the appeal. But if you need a little more convincing, just keep scrolling for some A-list buzz cut inspiration.

Joe Jonas

Fans of singer Joe Jonas will know that he’s come a long way since his floppy-haired boyband days.

From sweeping side fringes, faded cuts – and even a stint with bright blonde hair – we didn’t think there were any hairstyles left that Joe hadn’t tried. But then he revealed his most major mane transformation yet, by completely shaving off his famous tresses into a super short buzz cut!

Don’t worry guys, you’re not seeing double! It seems the Jonas brothers are keeping the buzz cut hair trend in the family, with Joe’s younger brother and fellow musician Nick Jonas also going for the chop.

We love the way he’s let his facial hair grow out too for a cool, dishevelled vibe, that gives an on-trend edge to the overall look! Credit: @nickjonas

For quite a while now, Jamie Dornan has been rocking short, tousled locks for his role as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades film series.

So, you can imagine the shock-waves that rippled through the All Things Hair office when he stepped out at the Fifty Shades Darker premiere with a dapper buzz cut look!

It’s no secret that Justin Bieber is one to embrace a hair trend or two, and it’s only recently that he revived his infamous man fringe.

However, as this pop sensation is quite the style chameleon, he’s now gone and dyed his locks platinum blonde and got a super short buzz cut! Credit: @justinbieber

French fashion designer and Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing has impeccable style and his hair is no exception. He debuted his newly shaved head during this season’s fashion month, confirming that the buzz cut is firmly fashion-pack approved.

Prefer to keep a little length, but still rock a zero-styling haircut? Then this slightly longer version of a buzz cut, as sported by Matt Damon, is the way to go.

It’s short enough to look super-sharp and it will see you stylish through any occasion, from a red carpet event to drinks at your local.

As one of the Brit power players across the pond, it’s no surprise that Idris Elba also went for one of the most powerful looking styles around – the buzzcut.

Discerning gents take note, this is the style to go for if you want to look like some kind of MI5 agent. And who doesn’t!?

Wentworth Miller

Ever since the hit TV show Prison Break, hit the screens, Wentworth Miller has stayed true to his signature buzz cut look. After all, if ain’t broke don’t fix it, we say!

Sporting a slightly greyer version of the cut, we think he still rocks this style, with a small amount of rough facial hair balancing out the look.

So there’s short hair and then there’s James McAvoy short hair. For fellas that are well and truly done with any kind of hairstyling, why not try out the super short buzz cut?

The best part is, if you don’t like it, it will grow into a longer version of a buzzcut soon enough – and we know that’s always a winner!

The best thing about super short hairstyles, is that all the attention will be on your face. To help bring out your features, opt for a buzz cut with a grade 2 or 3 clipper all over and you’ll have no-hassle ‘do in an instant.

Tip: For added style, team your buzz cut with a little facial hair. Pretty suave we say!

Having played enough military men to almost make us forget about Magic Mike #yeahright, we think it’s safe to say that Channing Tatum knows how to rock a good buzz cut. The style suits his uber manly style and his action man persona!

This former boyband star has ditched his perfectly styled locks and gone for a very grown up image overhaul, involving a sleek buzzcut. He’s almost unrecognisable with his new look, but we think that he really suits it!

For the fellas who want to make a serious style statement, follow in the foot steps of Hugh Jackman and team your ultra short buzzcut with a handlebar moustache and a trimmed goatee. This is a bold way to go, but its guaranteed to get you attention.

Justin Timberlake

He’s long ditched the matching outfits and bleached blonde locks, but what Justin stays true to is his short buzzcut. Team with a bit of facial hair and we think you’ll have yourself a sharp and rugged look right there.

We know that the Beckhams are winning major style points at the moment, but it’s Brooklyn Beckham who is making real waves when it comes to being a trend-setter.

Like his famous father, he’s been known to wear the most stylish outfits, teamed with the most on-trend cuts of course!
