New Hairstyles for Men

Get your long hair off your neck this summer by trying a man bun.

1. Man Bun

Popular with urban hipsters, the man bun is hallmarked by its top-knot style on the very top of your head. A fool-proof style to try for guys with long hair, you simply gather your hair in one hand and form it into a bun by twirling it around itself or just looping it halfway through a hair tie. This can either be a messy or slicked-back version, depending on your style preferences.

2. Undercut

This look is a cool way to upgrade your general style, as you get to keep the top layers untouched while shaving just the underside, a.k.a. business on top and party on the bottom! Reminiscent of a classic look from the ’50s with a modern twist, this cut is a great option for guys who have a professional job but still want a tinge of something youthful and modern.

3. Quiff

Guys who want volume might be all over the quiff. This style is renowned for hair that is brushed upward and backward from the forehead. Size matters with this look, and it’s the bigger, the better. You can rock your quiff starting at the middle of your crown or on brushed back at a slight angle.

4. Pompadour

A cross between the undercut and the quiff, the pompadour is renowned for its height in the front of the head. Some men rock the pompadour with shaved sides, while others have hair on the sides that is tapered or faded. For that slicked look, use some of the Axe Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade whose formula can help you to create this retro style while also taming any frizz or flyaways.

Popular amongst low-maintenance guys, the low fade cut tapers down into a look of invisibility towards the ear line. This can be a combination that has waves on top, creating some contrast while also giving off a clean-cut appeal. Use some Bed Head for Men by TIGI Slick Trick Firm Hold Paste whose formula will give you some serious hold as it locks in shine.

9. Simple Short

This easy hairstyle features some length on the top with the sides and back cut short. Also called the Caesar cut, a clean and simple look, that will still require regular trims to keep it looking fresh throughout the summer. With this look you don’t have to go as drastic with overall length as you leave some length at the hairline to be styled down flat, creating a mini bowl-cut look, hence the name. Use some Bed Head for Men by TIGI Power Play whose formula can help moisturize your hair as it holds your awesome style.
