There are plenty of men’s short hairstyles, but the first big decision is whether you want your hairdo be classic or make a statement.
For classic hair, you could go for neat and coiffed by asking for a classic cut, leaving a few inches of hair all over, then style it with a styling cream Try using a comb through the ends to make it uniform. To add interest, change up your parting, or play with texture when you add your styling product.
If you wanted something a little trendier, opt for a crew cut or buzz cut, or fade the end result being that your hair will be short but, thanks to the density of it, still appear full. Or you could try an undercut, where your hair will be shaved underneath around the back and sides, leaving you the top portion hair to play with.
Alternatively, throwback styles are having a moment, with the quiff going strong. To get it right, make sure you have a good hair clay to help your hair really stay in place but with flexibility, and remember to twist the front portion every now and then to keep your quiff looking fresh.
If you do your own hair at home, you might wonder how to do some popular styles, so here’s a speedy guide:
How To Do A Buzz Cut. Grab some clippers and a hand mirror, which you’ll need to see your neck. Make sure your hair is clean and dry, then start trimming at the top of your hair, working your way across your scalp.
How To Do A Skin Fade. You’ll need clippers with adjustable guards for this. Start by making sure the longest portion of your hair is the length you want it to be, then section off everything underneath it and add a guard to give you a slightly closer cut. Continue doing this in degrees, working up the guards until you have the shortest bit you’d like at the bottom of your hair.
How To Do A Pompadour. We’d recommend seeing a hairdresser for the ideal pompadour as it takes quite a lot of skill to achieve the right shape. Once you’ve got the cut in place, while your hair is still slightly damp, rake some shaping pomade through the longest portion for some hold, blow dry into place, and add putty as needed to lock yours into shape.
