These stylish haircuts for men take trends to the next level. There is more height, texture or detail that sets these looks apart from even the most popular styles.
Some of these cool hairstyles for men take more time than the average but it’s worth it. Hair is one of the most noticeable features about you. A great cut and style can elevate the simplest clothes and does even more for a dapper outfit.
These looks don’t always require much extra effort though. As usual, shorter looks are lower maintenance but can still have plenty of style of presence.
Check out these pictures for some of our favorite stylish haircuts for men.
1. Side Fringe + Fade
This unexpected hairstyle combines loose hair on top swept to one side with a high fade that is punctuated by a pair of shaved lines at the temple.

12. Comb Over + Burst Fade
The comb over is a classic look that keeps a fresh update from a burst fade.
