15 Cool Neckline Hair Designs

By Rich Krafting


Neckline hair designs have been super trendy the past few years. Building on the current hair tattoo trend, this version relocates the design from the sides to the back of the head for an eye-catching rear view.

The neckline hair design can use a fade haircut as a canvas or it can add a surprise finish to a tapered cut. The design itself can be a simple V or a complex multiple fade pattern. Let your barber get creative and see what they come up with!

This type of hair design works with any hair length from, short to long styles. It is a low commitment way to add something unique to your hairstyle so don’t be afraid to give this look a try.

Check out a few of the hottest new hairstyles for men featuring shaved designs in the neckline. These 15 pictures are a few of our favorite cuts.
