You’ve been rocking that high-and-tight side-part for a few years now, and let’s face it: it’s gotten a little stale. Next time you’re at the barbershop, ask for one of these of-the-moment cuts to freshen up your look. Thanks to our friends at Sharp Magazine for this piece…
One easy way to give your current cut a little more edge: Add volume. The classic pompadour was the defining haircut of the 1950s, and the pomade-heavy, swept-high look still turns heads.
See: James Dean remains the gold standard, but John Cho rocks a great contemporary version.
The Modern Buzz
There’s more to a great buzz cut than simply taking clippers to your head. Ask your barber for a #3 or #4 up top, with a clean fade using a #1 or #2 down the sides. The variations in length will look great kept short, but will also be a big help if and when you eventually decide to grow you hair back out.
See: Ryan Reynolds is a big proponent of this look, as is Chris Evans.
The Well-Kempt Shag
Thinking about growing your hair long, but don’t want to look like such a, well, long hair? Don’t worry, it’s possible to sport a longer ‘do that still works in the boardroom. The trick is to continue seeing your barber as regularly as you would for short hair: with cleaned-up sideburns and a little layering, your mop will be just as manageable and presentable as it’s ever been.
See: Bradley Cooper and Kit Harrington both maintain handsome length.
