21 Comb Over Haircuts

By Rich Krafting


The comb over is a classic haircut that has evolved but not gone out of style. The side part is flattering for every face shape and there is a comb over haircut for every hair type.

Modern comb over haircuts can included a low, medium or high fade, undercut or be tapered. Up top, hair can be styled into that classic slick look, have some volume or plenty of texture.

One of the appeals of this hairstyle is ease of styling. For most of these looks it is just three steps. Product. Part. Comb. Some of the newest high volume, high textured styles need some blow drying but it is still an easy and stylish men’s hairstyle. It’s all about getting the right haircut for your hair type and then hair practically styles itself. As always, talk to your barber.
