We’ve got side part hairstyles, comb overs, spikes and short cuts that suit all types of hair and face shapes. Add a fade of your choice or rock a taper.
All of these styles look great and are on point. Check out these 25 hot looks.
1. Sweep Back + High Fade
This version of the popular men’s hairstyle is cut and styled in a more formal way. The fade goes short instead of down to the skin while the top has a matte hold with a hint of wave but is neither slick or messy.
2. Side Part Hairstyle + Texture + Low Fade
Here’s the classic side part hairstyle with some updates this year. Hair on top features plenty of volume and some piecey separation while a low fade exposes skin at the hairline.
3. Textured Spikes + Fade
Texture is one of this year’s top hair trends. It can be added to any men’s hairstyle but works especially well with classic spikes.
4. Pomp Fade + Side Part
The pompadour and the side part are two classic men’s hairstyles that are constantly being reinvented. Here they combine forces with a fade for a modern look with timeless appeal.
5. Textured Quiff
Men’s hair with volume along the forehead are flattering on just about everyone and also easy to style. This version also has a high fade and texture.
6. Short Curls + Temple Fade
The latest texture trend applies to curly hair too. We are seeing lots of longer styles that highlight natural texture. A line up and temple fade keep the edges neat.
7. Buzz Fade + Line Up
This is one of the most popular very short hairstyles for men. The line up and fade add style and clean cut finish to an otherwise ordinary buzz cut.
8. High and Tight + High Fade + Hair Design
After the cut above, the high and tight is one of the top short hairstyles for black hair. It leaves enough length on top for some texture while cutting the sides close in a high fade. A simple hair design at the neck sets this particular cut apart from the rest.
9. Curly Hair + Mid Bald Fade
A fade with some length on top is one of the best haircuts for guys with curly hair. It is a low maintenance way to have some curly texture and just takes moments to style by working a curl cream through hair to define curls and fight frizz.
10. Side Part + Wavy Hair + Low Fade
Create your own unique hairstyle by mixing and matching a cut, fade and hair texture. This modern take on a classic side part features a low fade and unexpected waves on top.

In addition to texture, a top trend for the year is men’s hairstyles that are styled to have movement and flow. These looks still use product but ones with a matte finish and flexible hold.
12. Hi-Top + Curls + Low Bald Fade
The high top fade is one of the coolest cuts for guys with kinky curls. It’s not as geometric or precise as the flat top but has a similar impact with plenty of height and texture.

Spiky styles are also being influenced by the texture trend. This fresh look features larger than usual spikes pointed both up and forward.
14. Curved Spikes
