By Matt V


Somewhere in between short and long, these medium length hairstyles for men are just right. It is a versatile length that can be worn up to look shorter or down for a long hair feeling. These medium length cuts for men are longer than about 3″ and land above the chin.

Many of these men’s hairstyles are types of pompadours. Beyond the classic, pomps can be messy, textured, matte, or have an added side part. There are so many slicked back styles because they tame long hair and work for all hair types. Swept back looks can add volume to thick hair, make thin or fine hair appear thicker, lengthen round faces, and just look plain cool.

For looser looks, there are also flow hairstyles, messy looks, taper haircuts, dreads, and hair down looks. There is something for all hair types including straight, curly, Asian, and Black. Sides can be cut short into a fade or undercut or left long in a taper.
