Know what made the 70s, 80s and 90s suck so bad (and all three of those decades sucked in their own specific ways) – men’s haircuts were far too easily dated.
Not sure what was in the air or the water back then, a man could be just a beard, a sideburn or an undercut away from society scorn.
But those days are now behind us and today we find ourselves in a new millennium, where diversity is actually considered a windfall where men’s haircuts are concerned.
What you have here is the most comprehensive guide there is to help you find the right hairstyle for you.
We’ve covered all hair types:
- Short hair
- Long hair
- Curly hair
- Straight hair
- Thick hair
- Wavy hair
Also, just to make sure we’ve covered all the bases, face types are being taken into consideration, too.
Whether your face is round, thin, narrow – it doesn’t matter we make that a factor as well.
So let’s get right into it…
This is a great example of an undercut for a straight hair type done right.
If you think an undercut might be the best hairstyle option, be sure to check out our guide to undercuts here.
Short Men’s Hairstyle
Kind of hard to forgive Ben Affleck for what he did to the beloved Batman character (how could DC think he’d be able to match Christian Bale?), but this is a tight look.
If you have a narrow face like Affleck’s, this short crop really contrasts your facial features.
Now here is a look that disappeared with the 90s – largely because the 90s sucked.
If you look at this take on the haircut, the bangs are longer than the rest of the head of hair, the proportions are perfect, which can’t be said for the 90s version.
“Messy” Men’s Hairstyles
No one should aspire to look like some filthy dumpster diving bum.
However, when it comes to the evolution of men’s haircuts, going with a look that is clearly a controlled “mess” is coming into vogue.
Here are a few takes…
Hard to go wrong with the ‘messy’ look when you’re combining it with the lumberjack look.
People will just look at it and be like, “he definitely works hard – he earned it”.
This guy gets it – this is what should be called the ‘long day at the library’ messy haircut.
Totally love it.
One caveat about this look – it has a strict best-by date, so be sure your self-awareness meter is keenly dialed-in.
Styles For Thicker Hair Types
This look is ALMOST perfect – if you look carefully at the photo, you’ll notice that there’s a ponytail hanging there.
We can’t be going with ponytails when you’ve got every other piece of the puzzle so firmly in place.
Still love this look as it would come out the same if the hair was merely slicked back.
Hereby christening this haircut as the Kevin Bacon.
It’s as timeless as Sir Bacon’s career. Just waiting for this dude to bust out into a crazy dance.
