The biggest advantage of the undercut is the huge flexibility this cut gives you. From modern undercuts to the classic ones, the length variation on the top side is what you want to focus on, make sure to tell your barber exactly how you would like for it to be done.
Styling – To style your undercut, start by slicking your wet hair either to the back or the side according to your preference, after that, while blow drying, use a wide-tooth comb for the manipulation of the waves. The idea here is to achieve a noticeable contrast with the hair on the sides of the head.
Basically slicked back hair with extra volume, this works for both guys with thick or thin hair, and with the right styling technique your lighter colored hair will look amazing. Here the sides are cut into a skin fade, about an inch above the hairline all around. The effect is a fresh and clean style, with retro roots.
Styling – The key is to brush or comb your hair into the desired shape, after applying volumizer to damp, and hot blow drying your hair into place.
The Man Bun Look
The man bun is still going strong for guys with long hair. Once one of David Beckham’s hairstyles of choice, the bum is only recommended if you have a patch free beard to combo with, and thick hair. On the bright side, it is really easy to maintain and it is also a ladies favorite.
Styling – To style it, start after air drying your hair. Free of any hair products, slick it back and make a half ponytail. It is as easy as that.
The Buzz Cut
The Buzz Cut, also known as the military cut, is as low maintenance as it gets, so if you are looking for a “ready to go anywhere at any time” this should be perfect for you.
The buzz gets its name from the sound of the clippers, but it does not have to be necessarily ultra short or even all one length, make sure to talk with your barber about it, so you can get an exclusive, “your face” adapted cut.
Short and Messy
Tired of the old clean cut short hairstyle? Being practical, fashionable and easy to maintain, the messy look is an excellent option, and it gives your natural blonde hair a bad boy look instantly. The “i just woke up” tendency is in an all time high in 2017, and it is perfect for both work and play.
Styling – If you are new to using hair products, this is a great way to start practicing because there is no way to go wrong. You can easily achieve this look by applying your favorite styling product (we recommend a good quality pomade) to your still wet hair, proceed then to flatten the sides and go wild on the top and in the front, and when you are satisfied with the look, You can air or blow dry.
Vogue for over 100 years, with the invention of pomade and other styling products the slicked back trend is back with full force. The key component for a good slicked back hair is the placement. The way you stylize it can make it go from serious to casual in a simple careless touch.
Styling – Guide for achieving perfect slick: starting at the forehead, with your hair still humid, gently pull your hair back and finish the movement at the crown (just above your neck, where your hair ends), making sure that you coat your hair with a suitable good pomade in the process.
The best part about having a slicked back cut is that you are pretty much allowed to shape the slick as you wish, so you can turn it from a more of a formal cut into a modern edgy cut in just a couple of moves.
Hot blow drying for additional fixation is recommended. Avoid doing this in fully-dried hair.

I almost believed this to be Chris Hemsworth because of the formal yet casual top. The sides are strictly taper faded with the top being brushed up with a slight side brush. The undercut is quite subtle with line ups being quite angular and tapered, this is a good blend of casual to formal.
This is what a thick volume with a cheeky side part gets you. Plus if you notice the sides are again layered and not taper faded. The temple is blended into a beard and that balances the overall outlook of the face. The side brush is very much casual and nothing too serious, which gives it that playful edge.

This is exactly what it means to have a hairstyle that is semi-formal and casual both at the same time. The pushed back or slicked back base makes it a very elegant one and then the side being taper faded makes it better. Plus, that dye that makes it golden is what makes it better, just look at it!

Crafty side sweep with a thick taper fade plus that blend into the beard makes it full of style, plus not to mention, that highlight on the chin beard is what pops up with that tuxedo to make it even more gentlemanly. How wouldn’t want to be like this?
Undercut and Brush-Up
That is straight-up from gods, that brush up of thin hair strands, that too being pretty casual about it, plus the sides being straight up taper faded is just marvelous. The beard brings the whole style an anchor that makes the face look fuller and adds more girth to the top.
