The easiest way to clean up for work for guys with all hair types is going short. Some styling is usually required as well. Use a pomade to hold hair in place, add volume, or tame curls.

A low fade around the sides and back keeps the hairline impeccably clean. It can buy time between barber visits because fades grow in nicely. Another option is to stay short and faded with regular trims. More time and money spent on haircuts can mean less styling time.

2. Side Part Hairstyles

The side part is classic men’s haircut that always looks professional. There are many different versions of the cut, from a short Ivy League to medium length taper haircut, as well as many styles in between. Longer hair can be styled with volume, worked up into a quiff, or styled over to one side.

Matte pomade with a natural finish has a modern look but classic product with a touch of shine is timeless.
