Men’s Hairstyles that We all Love
Not that we get our haircut to attract the opposite sex (ok maybe sometimes) but its nice to know that your particular style is going to show you off in your best light!
There are hairstyles still being sported out there that no one in their right mind should wear…(for your reference have a look at most of our male politicians) and if you happen to be wearing one, there’s a reason you haven’t had a date in a while.
There are however certain perennial styles that have an unexplainable allure…so just in case you need a little extra help we made it our mission to uncover them for you.
This simple but sexy men’s style is a classic all-time favourite that never goes in or out of fashion. There is something traditionally masculine and self-assured about a ‘no-style’ hair style. It says ‘I am confident enough to go without an obvious style and good looking enough to pull it off’
You need a reasonably uniform head shape and it works for most hair textures and density) the less hair you have the shorter you might take this cut…but it is by no means a shaved head
For this style so ask your stylist to shape your into a uniform length over your head, fading into a shorter perimeter.
Once every 4-5 weeks, repeat the process to maintain the length. On a daily basis, the bonus of this cut is that there’s no need for styling, so just wash and go.
Kind off done-undone hair, long layers suggest that you’re not uptight or high maintenance when it comes to your appearance (i.e. your bathroom products won’t take up more space than hers). This style however does NOT mean you don’t get your hair professionally cut…in fact quite the opposite. To pull this off and be stylish and low maintenance you need it to be super well cut by a professional stylist (otherwise you just like you have no fashion sense)
Long layers suggests a laid-back, surfer dude with a chilled out approach to life
You’ll need to grow your hair out for a while and then ask your stylist to cut some it in layers, with the longest ones no more than chin length. You can also add a longer front that can be casually swept to the side. If you have a lot of hair the weight can be reduced by razor cutting or thinning the hair out.
At home, use a little wax or pomade to style some definition into your hair. Finally, don’t let your mane get too dirty or oily (you’re going for silky not grungy) and get regular trims so you don’t end up looking like you just need a haircut
Short & Square Cut
This is a retro look that suggests a sleek and clean-cut appearance, which might suggest you have your life in order and are confident to sport a strong fashion forward haircut. This cut emphasises the manliness of your facial features by drawing attention to your face’s angles.
Even dressed down, this haircut makes you look suave and sophisticated
This is a technical haircut and needs to be done in-salon by an experienced stylist. Getting the shape and the balance is critical to making this cut work
The quiff has serious appeal without taking itself too seriously. It is essential an extension of the short style where there is more length on top. Often a quaffed style On the one hand, it conjures up images of the suaveness associated with shows like Mad Men.
This hairstyle requires locks that are longer on the crown of your head and taper off on the sides. That kind of cut will allow you to get significant volume when you comb hair over to one side. To keep your wave in place, comb a tiny bit of mousse or gel through the front of your hair and style it with a comb.
Disconnect and Slick Back
Slicked-back hair looks, well, slick. It’s a retro-inspired style that instantly makes any guy look like Jimmy Darmody from Boardwalk Empire.
A slicked back hairstyle works best with medium length hair and generally will have an undercut disconnected from the top.
To get the look, comb a styling product with hold throughout your hair. Next, part your hair on the left hand side beginning the part toward the middle of your left eyebrow.

Getting the Right Haircut For You
A haircut is personal and should be created to suit your face shape and hair type, as well as your image and personality.
We are all so different and the shape of our faces vary massively. Some men will have to take their face shape into account more than others; but interestingly the illusion we are trying to create with men is a wider jawline, and the impression of a squarer face shape, which is to be the most masculine
One of the key differences in cutting men’s hair is that generally we are looking to create strong square shapes to help to enhance the sense of masculinity while with women’s hair is is usually about softness and femininity
Oval Face Shape
Like your female counterpart the oval face is considered to be the ideal face shape, an oval face generally suits any hairstyle in any shape or length, because it is proportionally well-balanced. So not only can you pull off any type of sunglasses you like, but you also have the freedom to experiment with your haircut
Oval face shapes also tend to be able to hear hats and beanies
The only thing to avoid is a full length fringe, as this can make the face appear rounder. An oval head shape allows maximum versatility, allowing the hair to be styled onto or off the face and can be worn long or short.
Square Face Shape
A square face shape is considered to be strong and masculine. When me have their hair cut, the majority of styles they choose are squarer and more angular than women’s. Most women prefer to have their haircuts rounder in shape.
A strong jawline is the definitive feature of a square face, which makes the face appear chiselled and angular in appearance. Much like oval, a square face shape suits a wide range of styles, but the hair around the hairline can often look better if it is softer around the edges.
Rectangular Face Shape
An rectangle face will also suit many hairstyles. This face shape is slightly longer than an oval face, and it’s important to keep this in mind when choosing your haircut.
Try to avoid taking the sides too short if you want to keep length on top, as this would accentuate the length of the face and it make it appear even longer. IDon’t make sure face look longer with too much height
This face shape also suits having the hair styled onto the face to reduce the appearance of length and maintain balance.
Round Face Shape
A round face has no angles or prominent lines, therefore it’s important to choose a style that can be worn with a bit of height. It doesn’t have to be spiky but adding volume keeps the face from looking too round.
Heart Face Shape
A heart shaped face is wide at the temples so by keeping hairstyles longer to can add width at the jawline
Shorter hairstyles will only accentuate the upper part of the face. A great way to balance a heart shaped face would be to grow some form of facial hair. Stubble or a short beard would help maintain the proportions between the upper and lower halves of the face.
