22 Super Fun Hipster Haircuts For Men

By Rich Krafting


The most popular hipster haircuts for men build on old favorites with new trends. Most of these haircuts for men have their roots in classic men’s hair styles but add modern finishes.

Some of the most popular styles are side parts, slick backs, fade haircuts, undercuts, tapers and a few short haircuts too.

Facial hair is another definitive feature of hipster hair. If you have the facial hair but nothing else, grow out that beard and shave the head. A handlebar mustache is also a definite hipster look.

Check out these fresh hipster styles we are seeing in the barbershops right now.

1. Dapper Retro Style

Many hipster styles reinvent past looks. This dapper gentleman is a modern dandy with a textured pomp and waxed mustache.

2. Slick Back + Full Beard

Slicked back styles have been hipster favorites since the beginning. Now hairstyles are longer and looser with a matte finish.

4. Textured Pomp Fade

The pomp is a high volume slick back that is embraced by all kinds of styles because it looks so good. Add some tousled texture and height to update the look.

5. Medium Length Hipster Haircuts for Guys

The taper haircut trend has some roots in hipster style. This clipper-free haircut is layered to work with a natural wave and require minimal styling.

6.  Wavy Side Part + V-Shaped Neck

A fade that ends with a V-shaped neck and ample wave on top take this side part to the next level.

7. Taper Haircut for Curly Hair

Hipster haircuts for black guys are also built on the classics. A high top, flat top or afro will work but this scissor cut, medium length cut has a fresh profile and modern finish.

8. Crop with Jagged Fringe


The textured crop is a major trend for men this year. Forward fringe in a jagged line is just one way to get the look.

9. High Fade Hipster Haircut


Not all hipster haircuts for guys are medium length or long. This short slick back fits the bill, especially because the high fade reveals ink.

10. High and Tight + Beard


This fade haircut with curls on top is one of the most popular and flattering haircuts for black men. A beard and retro glasses give some hipster finishing touches.

11. Spiky Hair

Classic hairstyles, traditional tattoos and retro facial hair are also hallmarks of hipster style. Embracing the vintage or modern is up to you.
