Summer is here and the best way to look your best in the heat is with a fresh, short haircut. All of these cool short haircuts for guys are easy to wear, from trendy buzz to textured crops and messy styles.
While many products can stand up to the heat, matte or clay pomades provide plenty of hold without ever looking greasy. Clay pomades even absorb oil. These types of pomade help create this year’s popular textured hairstyles.
Another way to beat the heat in style is with a fade haircut that cuts hair around the sides and back very short or all the way down to the skin. These cool cuts look great and keep the air flowing.
Here are a few of the types of haircuts that are hot this summer.
A fade and some product keep this longer buzz looking cool. This is great cut for summer or growing hair out. Try a gel-like pomade and work a tiny bit through hair before pinching small sections to create a hint of spiky texture.
We can’t stop talking about crop haircuts because they are so popular, look so good and there are so many of them. One of the defining features of a crop is some kind of fringe. It can be shorter or longer, straight across or jagged plus a whole lot more. This angular fringe is a result of both the cut and styling.
Here’s another example of jagged fringe but with more length and height on top. The shaved line and beard shape emphasize this bold style but aren’t mandatory.
Textured crops work really well for guys with texture hair, i.e. wavy or curly. This look works with thick, textured hair and should only require product to fight frizz in humid places.
This blunt crop is heavy on the texture and can be worn with straight, wavy or curly hair.
This short quiff haircut is clean cut enough for work and stylish enough for everything else. This is versatile cut that can work to add volume to fine hair or lighten up thick hair.
A combination of spikes, a quiff and bedhead, this is just one way to have fun with this short haircut.
This is one of those difficult to find cool and professional hairstyles that work for business and the rest of your life.
These messy spikes make the most of thick hair. However, this type of men’s hairstyles can also be used to make fine or thin hair look thicker.
Texture over blunt fringe over a shaved line over a fade creates lots of layers in one short haircut.
A shaved side part isn’t an unexpected line haircut but it is a good one.
Interesting necklines are a huge trend this year and a fun look for summer. This cool look adds a pair of flying Vs over a burst fade pompadour.
