5 Short Buzz Cut Hairstyles for Men

We know you’ve seen this military-inspired haircut trend pop-up again and again, but short buzz cut hairstyles are a trend we’re so on-board with. This haircut allows you to achieve a clean, sleek look in no time at all. Plus, it’s the ideal DIY quarantine haircut. Check out our top five ways to wear a buzz cut.


Section Title: Different ways to rock short buzz hairstyles for men

1. All-over buzz

The standard buzz cut hairstyle is one length all around your head. This short cut really gives off that military vibe. And, it’s also a super-easy haircut to maintain at home! All you need is a set of clippers and a very short guide comb.


2. Buzz temple fade

This kind of buzz cut hairstyle will help add a bit of structure to your ‘do. Otherwise, there isn’t all that much to do when it comes to styling. So, focus on using a shampoo and conditioner that will work to keep your hair healthy-looking, smooth and shiny.

We recommend Toni&Guy Intense Softness Shampoo and Conditioner. This range provides extra hydration, which is especially important for dudes with curlier hair. It’s also very important for slightly longer cuts, like this buzz cut temple fade.


3. Nearly shaved buzz

If you have a much shorter buzz cut hairstyle (like this nearly shaved look) you need to focus on your scalp care. When your cut is this short you can see your scalp pretty easily, so it’s extra-important to avoid a drying out your scalp.

We recommend you use Organics Anti-Dandruff 2-in-1 Shampoo. It will keep you dandruff-free, and it leaves your scalp feeling totally refreshed.


4. Buzz and fade

For a low-key change to your short buzz cut hairstyle, try this long fade. The fade, in this case, really just means that the edges fade away. This makes sure you don’t have any harsh lines besides the clean-cut hairline. Having faded edges on your military haircut gives the look a whole lot more style!


5. Buzz and beard

One of our favourite looks is the buzz cut and beard combo. Growing a beard adds an interesting contrast, whether your beard is grown out or close-shaved like in this image.
