Top 100 Men’s Haircuts + Men’s Hairstyles

Okay, so let’s dive in and take a look at the best haircuts for men and hairstyles for men that we have seen this year. 

Somewhere on this list, there is a brand new haircut and men’s hairstyle combination for you to try out.

This haircut is half pompadour half undercut. It features a drop fade down to the skin. To get this look you need a blow dryer. That is what will give the hair body, flow and movement. Brush and blow dry to the one side. Brush and blow dry front to back. It is amazing what just a brush and a blow dryer can do to give the hair big flow. You don’t even need to use a product. However, a light to medium hold pomade will help to keep the hair standing up for more hours of the day.

42. Long Textured Fringe + Mid Fade Haircut

A long fringe just looks cool. This is a modern take on the classic skater haircut for guys. Long textures are styled forwards into the flow of the fringe. The heavier hair length up front and on top contrasts perfectly with the mid fade to the sides and back.

Short haircuts for men never go out of style and always look great. This is a great haircut for guys that have thick hair and want to keep things clean and fresh. This look features a mid skin fade, and short textured hair on top styled into a quiff. The great thing about short haircuts is that they are super easy to maintain and style. Not much to it.

44. Textured Quiff Meets Pompadour Haircut + Line Up

A totally cool haircut. Part mohawk, part quiff, part pompadour. It features a bald fade that places the emphasis on the wild loose hair on top. To get this look you need to use a blow dryer and a brush.

45. Cool Short Crop Haircut For Wavy Hair + Low Fade

Alessio Bolognesi

Crop haircuts have been super popular. They are still going strong and will likely continue to be a top pick for guys that like a short haircut. Crop haircuts work for all hair types. At first we were seeing mostly blunt cut crops. These days we are seeing more textured and asymmetrical fringes. This one is kind of in between. This is definitely one of the best haircuts for men that want to keep their hair short. It is also one of the best haircuts for receding hairlines since the hair is styled forwards.

46. Natural Waves Medium Length Men’s Haircut + Short Sides

Hard Grind

A very natural looking classic men’s haircut. Short sides, a bit longer on top, brushed back into place.

54. Tapered Haircut For Men + Long Fringe + Super Natural Flow

Josh Lamonaca

I love this haircut. This is one of the best haircuts for thin hair of fine hair. If you have less hair you want a haircut that keeps more but places the emphasis on what is left on top. This taper fade and short sides accomplish that. Blended perfectly into a medium length on top that has a tremendous amount of flow.

55. Super Cool Low Fade + Short Textured Hair On Top

Underground Veria

This is one of my favorite haircuts that I have seen in the past year. I like fade haircuts that are not just your classic fade.

On top, we have some nice soft looking medium textures.

56. Thick Hair Quiff Haircut With Textures + High Fade

Shane Cronin

Another fantastic haircut. I love this choppy textured quiff haircut that features a high skin fade. To get this hairstyle use strong hold pomade. Work it into damp hair. Blow dry and brush the hair into place. This is a super cool disconnected undercut meets quiff.

57. Choppy Textured Medium Length Haircut For Men

Mokum Barbers

A few years ago it was all about short textured haircuts. Then things evolved into longer textured haircuts like this one. This is a good haircut for guys that have thicker hair whether your hair is coarse or fine. The textured cut makes the styling part easier. You can towel dry or do a quick blast blow dry. Then simply work a medium to strong hold pomade into the hair to bring the textures alive. Every day you can get a different look depending on the direction you move the hair into place. That is what is awesome about textured haircuts like this one.
