If you haven't seen your barber for quite some time and don't know the first thing about today's men's hairstyles, you've come to the right place. We get it, a busy man like you has more important things to spend his time on. But, there are instances when a bit more effort in styling your hair is needed. May it be for a job interview, a family event, or even just the desire to refresh your look, there's something for you on this list. Here are 15 timeless men's hairstyles that suit men of all ages.
Fashion is all about bringing back styles from the past. Exhibit A: The slicked back undercut. This is a hairstyle where the sides and back of your head are in an undercut. The top is kept long enough to slick it back, giving a polished and sharp finish.
One of the more classic men's hairstyles, this style actually became popular in the 1930s. Back then, it was one of the go-to haircuts for men, as keeping a formal and heterogeneous look was the norm. It offered a way to keep their hair flattened to avoid visual distractions in conversations.
This would be a bad list of the best men hairstyles if we didn't include this timeless cut. It's a modern spin on a classic hairstyle that suits men with square-shaped faces because it accentuates strong jawlines.
The Ivy League haircut, aka the Princeton or Harvard clip, is a fusion of the crew cut and side part. It begins with a short trim on the top and sides with the front long enough for combing it over to the side. If you have a strong jawline or high cheekbones, this hairstyle is perfect for you.
Here's a sad fact about this haircut: back in the 1920s, society associated the undercut with the inability to afford a decent barber who can do a regular haircut. The revival of this haircut began in the late 1980s with new wave, synthpop, and electronic music fans sporting it as an alternative to mullets and backcombed hairstyles. The undercut is a fitting hairstyle for men with oval and square-shaped faces.
The Caesar cut is a variation of the buzz cut with the back and sides tapered. It's a great hairstyle choice for men of all ages that gives a youthful clean-looking appearance. Comb or brush the top section forward and down flat to create a neat short fringe. You can also use a little texturizing gum to add a subtle lift and texture.
The contrast between the sleek high fade and the long length top of this haircut will surely make you a head-turner. Add some extra texture and sport a quiff for a refined look.
If you want a fuss-free but modern and cool hairstyle, give the classic taper cut a try! This neat, classic look is perfect for men who want to look dapper minus the hassle of daily maintenance and styling. Got an oval face and defined cheekbones? This cut will work wonders on your style.
