21 Stylish Side Part Haircuts

By Rich Krafting


Whether you want a classic or modern look, side part haircuts are a flattering choice. This versatile men’s haircut style can be as clean cut or bold as you like.

If you’re looking for an easy to style haircut for men, try a side part. The comb over fade practically styles itself. Taper haircuts or medium length hair also requires styling at the sides but it’s still simple.

On top, go matte for a classic look, shiny for a retro finish or add lots of height and texture to be on point. For something different, add some defined waves or even a side quiff.

Check out these pictures for 21 different ways to wear side part haircuts.
