For the past 30,000 years in some way, shape or form Hairstyles have been an integral part of our lifestyle. Starting from practices like braiding in 2800 BCE to the present day diversity of hairstyles, we sure have come a long way. Hairstyles these days tell a lot about a man’s personality and character hence you are often judged with the sort of hairstyles you rock. From men with extremely short hair or no hair at all to men with hair so long you could easily mistake them with the other gender, every hair length has plenty of different options you could choose from. But not every hairstyle looks the same on everybody. It’s not only about one’s ability of being able to carry a certain hairstyle but some hairdo’s only look good certain faces while other don’t. So before picking one of the latest hairstyles for yourself, it’s never a bad idea to be doubly sure as for most of us, hair is a crown we never take off. And while your at it, check out our list of best hairstyles for men.
One of the older hairstyles in our list. Pompadour hairstyles have evolved over the years. With various iterations and variation of this hairstyle, it’s sure gonna stay a favourite in years to come. From James Bond of the earlier movies to pop sensation Bruno Mars, all have rocked the pompadour hairdo’s in there own way. So create your own iteration of pompadour hairdo today.
This one’s for all the long hair fan boys. While some may be of the opinion that long hair is for females, in the cinematic universe it’s often the most macho-men who have rocked this hairstyle. And man, do they look hot. Take Jason Momoa for example, no one in Hollywood rocks the man bun like he does. Pair it up with a well kept beard, for a perfect recipe of a lady killer.
This looks just bad-ass on some people. The ‘Haider’ look if you will, Shahid Kapoor rocked this look like only a few have in the past. As when it comes to short hairstyles, this one might not scream bad-ass for everybody, but for the one’s it does, have fun with the buzz.
Not to be confused with goth, as emo is pretty different. Ignoring the technical side of things, goth is when you hate the world while emo is when the world hates you. What makes the emo cut stand out from others though is that most people don’t just go for the hairdo, they go for the entire emo look. And what makes the emo look you ask? Well, it starts with dark make-up, dark hair colour and what not! Look up Adam Lambert for inspiration.
The Bieber Look
Well well well…We’re all familiar with this one aren’t we? The Beliebers sure are. And the haters too. Love him or hate him, chicks dig this hairdo and it should be on the list of hairstyle for boys.. In-fact in order to get the Bieber look, some guys have even gone to extreme measures. Spending thousands of dollars on surgery just to get the look right. Well, not encouraging anybody to go overboard and crazy to get this look right, but you’re sure to grab a ton of attention if you do get it right.
One of the more freakish hairdo’s if you will, mo-hawks have been around for centuries but only came into prominence after the hard rock bands of the U.S.A. wore the mo-hawk and made it mainstream. With various iterations like adding vivacious colours into the mix to low fades and high fade mo-hawks too have plenty of variations. So if your the kind to be bold enough to wear a mo-hawk, you must look up all of the mo-hawk’s iteration of haircuts for men.
Short hair on the front and sides and really long hair at the back. This was really the defining factor of the original mullet hairdo from back in the day. But times have changed. And with time, various iterations of mullets hairdo’s have been introduced. Hence, the modern day mullet hairdo is pretty different from the traditional one. As it’s a little less outlandish and more conservative. Which is great as not everybody wants to go gonzo with there hairdo. Some want something a bit more sedate without loosing the true essence of it. The modern mullet sure appeals to a lot more people now then it did before.
Slicked Back Look
Who doesn’t look great in a well combed clean hairdo? Arguably, we all do. It doesn’t matter if your hair is straight or curly or if its long or short. This trick here though is that, wet hair sure provides with much needed extra shine which is pretty essential for this look. So brylcreem would do great to add more appeal.
A combination of the 50’s pompadour and flat top hairstyles and at times even the mo-hawk is what makes a quiff. The quiff like some of the other hairstyles on this list too has various iterations depending on the type of hair you have. In recent times this hairdo has also become pretty common among the celebrities.
A type of hairdo you’d generally associate with someone from the army. Short and clean on the sides and back, properly aligned elsewhere. As the name suggests, what sets this hairstyle from others is the flat top hair. I don’t think anybody has forgotten Dolph Lundgren in Rocky IV from back in the day. Flat top male hairstyles have now again made a comeback.
Curly Side Fringe
For our curly haired friends, it has always been relatively difficult for them to style there hair. So, keeping them in mind, we have for you, perhaps the coolest looking hairstyles of all. Curly side fringes are slowly becoming common among people and for good reason. This hairdo helps give you look you’ve previously only seen professional model try. It’s pretty bold yet classic enough for you to rock on daily basis.
The Wolverine Look
From James Howlett to an old man, Hugh Jackman’s iconic hairdo of the comic book character Logan aka Wolverine has won hearts all over the world. This hairstyle has bad-ass written all over it. The macho character, that wolverine is, is enhanced through this look. So for all the comic book junkies and wolverine fanboys, tryout this look at-least once. If it works for you, you’d never wanna go back to your old hairdo.
Hipster Bowl Cut
From a distance it may appear to some like a mop top but when you take a closer look, the difference is evidently clear. Named bowl cut as the hair appears to look like the shape of a bowl on a head. Initially seen as a cheap alternative for underprivileged as it’s simple and straight-forward style made it easy for non-professional barbers to cut there hair. But those days have no significance in the present times as this hairdo gives a cute ”boy next door” look to young men.
These types of hairstyles have seen a sudden rise in recent times. Especially among the sportsmen around the world. And as you’d expect, fans have followed the suit. Be it basketball, cricket or football, designer hairstyles can be seen everywhere. With no limitations on designs, it’s a great choice for those who wish to rock one of the new hairstyles for men.
One of the hottest hairstyles of all time. As the name might suggest, rockabilly is a fusion on rock & roll and hillbilly music of the 50’s in the United States. Hence, the singer of this genre would rock this hairdo at that time. It is basically a modified Pompadour hairstyle. Zayn Malik is a great example of how great the rockabilly hairdo really looks on men.
RIGHT! So lets be real. For long, we Indians have been fascinated by looking at guys with dreadlocks in the Hollywood movies or when we travel abroad to countries where they are pretty common. But today everything is well within our reach. So instead of just looking at them, why not just get the look. It might not be as cheap as some of the other hairstyles are but it sure is worth trying at-least once.
Middle Parting For Long Hair
Another hairdo that is traditionally associated with women. But as times change so do stereotypes. Or they should if they haven’t already. As this hairstyle is prettiest of them all. And is not just for women but men too. So if you are lucky enough to have long hair, don’t shy away from trying this hairdo out
Naturally Flowing Curly Hair
Embrace all the curls of your hair by letting them down. This natural look is going to look amazing. While the rest of the world is trying to fit in and doing the usual. The uniqueness of your curly hair is gonna help you stand out.
Wavy hairstyles give men a very calm appearance. This is especially true for men with medium length hair. Don’t take our word for it, just take a good look at Johnny Depp from the movie Tourist. And we wouldn’t blame Angelina Jolie for falling in love with him in the movie. With hair like that, who wouldn’t? This wavy hairdo showcases simplicity at it’s best.
This hair style for men was at it’s peak during the “Dil Chahta Hai” release in the early 2000’s. The spikes still haven’t lost its charm. This hairstyle is usually rocked with the use of hair gels to keep the look as it is and to give it a wet appearance. Bring back the spiky look and for the sake of all the childhood memories associated with this look.
One of the oldest hairdo’s ever. Cornrows are still an integral part of some cultures around the world. Often favored for there easy maintenance, as rows can be left for weeks if taken proper care of. Initially straight line was the only design worn but now complicated geometric designs have also become the trend. In popular culture former basketball player Allen Iverson gained a lot of popularity for fully embracing African culture and making it cool for other stars to do the same.
While this may be the last resort for most men, a clean shaved head too can look extremely sexy. So if your hairline has given up on you or you’re sick of trying different hairdo’s or if you just don’t have enough hair on your head to rock any other look, you mustn’t loose hope. As bald is the new sexy. Some of the most bad-ass Hollywood actors are bold and proud. So rock the bald look with confidence.
