The top mens short haircuts to inspire your next look.
What you’ll need
Short haircuts for men are always a good idea. This may not be groundbreaking news, but we think it’s worth mentioning, especially since there are so many ways you can wear short hair. And we aren’t just talking about the classic bowl cuts or military haircuts from your youth.
At this time in your life is also important to figure out your personal style. The beauty of being in your 30s is having the ability to experiment with different haircuts and styles without having to stress if you can pull off the man bun. Plus, the modern short cut is way more versatile and offers you the chance to play with texture and even a little length. Read on to check out some of our favorite short haircuts for men:
10 Best Short Haircuts for Men
1. High Buzz
A buzz cut doesn’t need to be super low. Instead, go for a high buzz, the slightly longer length is a much more modern look. This cut works best on naturally straight to slightly wavy hair, curly hair may not get an even look with a cut this length.
Getting your hair cut into a fauxhawk gives you more styling options. You can style it into a fauxhawk using Dove Men+Care Control Gel, or leave it down for a more casual look. If you don’t style it into a fauxhawk, comb the top of your hair to one side for a faux comb-over look.
3. Shaved Head
Who needs short hair when you can have no hair? Shaving your head is definitely a powerful look when you are in your 30s. You can use it as a way to up your cool factor, or as a way to beat balding.
4. Classic Fade
If a retro look is more your style, get a classic fade haircut. This is a good way to shape your hair after having a tight undercut, or as a way to clean up a shaggier style. Style the top of your hair backward by using AXE Clean Cut Look Classic Pomade to seal the deal on this cool, retro style.
5. Comb-Over With Undercut
With a versatile cut like the comb-over, you can do just about anything with your hair. Keeping it slightly longer on top with an undercut is a high contrast look. Style with Bed Head For Men By TIGI Power Play Firm Finish Gel for a clean shiny look that lasts all day.
6. Slicked Back
This look is similar to the comb-over with undercut underneath and a slicked back look on top. Slicking back your hair of any length will instantly give your hair a sleek, professional look. When getting this cut think about how much hair you want to keep on top – the longer it is, the more of a #throwback ’80s look you’ll have.
7. Tight Undercut
We really do love pairing an undercut with short haircuts for men. Keeping your undercut extra low adds extra drama to your hair. You can pair a tight undercut with many different mens styles like a comb-over or a modern pompadour.
8. Short Crop
Nothing wrong with keeping it simple and going for a short crop. This is one of those almost magical haircuts that looks good on every guy and every hair type. You can take this cut shorter or longer to your preference which is a bonus because it grows out really well.
9. Closely Cropped Curls
We love short hairstyles for men that show off natural texture. Wear your curls closely cropped for a sleek look that still showcases your natural curls.
10. Strike a Balance
If you’re looking for short mens hairstyles that include some of the top trends, this is the one for you. Strike a balance and pair your short haircut with a closely shaven beard.
