This edgy men’s cut uses inspiration from the mullet, as the longest hair is in the back. The front of the hair is shorter, and the fringe section is cut into a baby bang laying onto the forehead. This hairstyle requires more styling maintenance to achieve this look everyday.
Tough Long Top with Moustache
Here’s another hairstyle with that edgy, hipster-ish feel. It’s a medium-length, side-swept haircut with short sides and some old-fashioned facial hair.
The Fanged Edgar
This style is given a shock of rugged edge through the sharp changes in style and contrast, which is accentuated by the tattoos and thick silver earring. In the fringe, we see this gentleman had some stark linework which is interrupted by the curled lock that falls down just above the tattoo on his forehead. Further increasing the edginess was the messy lifted top hair that follows off the fang and up through the top of the head.
The High Layered Quiff
The quiff is usually used to bring a clean and sleek fashionable style, but here, we see how it can also complement an edgier, harder style. The tall fringe is styled in layered bands rolling back to the highly textured back of the head, creating a unique appearance that adds to the overall look. A high fade reveals a wolf tattoo that then keeps the eyes rolling down the face and into the stubble. The hairstyle brings a level of cleanliness that is deeply contrasted by the dark ink of the artwork on the face and neck.
High Burst Fade Quiff
Hairstyles are unique for the individual, and that’s what makes style so amazing. This gentleman takes the quiff to the next level by keeping the fringe longer than the rest of the hair. Add some high-shine pomade to comb the fringe up and back in a rolling quiff, contrasting the burst fade and the skin it reveals. The hard part is cut in to add a bit of edge to the style, which is slightly accentuated by the petite goatee.
Disconnected Dyed Undercut
The sides are this hair cut are completely shaved, while the top is kept much longer. This disconnect between the top and sides of the hair creates shape to the style and allows the eye to be drawn directly to the top. The fashion blue color is a stylistic choice that adds more of an edge to the overall style.
Skin Faded Skullet
Dare to bring out your fashion-brave side with this faded skullet. While it has longer hair in the back, it has short stubble on the top that blends with the skin on the sides.
An ideal haircut that is perfect for when you want a style change. This hair on top is spiked up and dragged down to create that classy mohawk appearance.
Medium Disconnected Crop
Want to appear younger? Try out this French crop with the hairs on top spiking forward. Take it a step further by creating a disconnected undercut that fades into your skin.
You’re sure to get a lot of attention with this daring skullet haircut. The hair on top is shorter, with the middle shaved off, while the hair at the back is longer. Sides are faded to keep the focus on top.
No One Said Not to be Hippie
Where do we start? The French crop that is massively fringed or the top that is long yet massively tossed but still regains brush-up vibes? Certainly, this is a big bowl of panache, especially with sides being tapered and not faded to keep that long hair strand look even!
Side Swept Undercut
This style is yet another long, side-swept mop. However, it’s cut ultra-short on the sides for an undercut-like flare, and also features unusually long and thick facial hair.
Funky Blonde Straight Fringe
This is a cool style to try out for someone with short blonde hair. Pair it with a straight fringe for more definition. A little accessorizing here and there makes you look cooler for that outing.
High Volume Top with Widow's Peak
It definitely isn’t the look for everyone, but a high-volume, blowout-like style like this one is sure to stand out. It’s also not too wild, so it still works for serious, day-to-day life.
Wavy Textured Fringe
Need something especially edgy? Why not try a faux-hawk, combining a textured fringe on top with some wild hairline designs on the side.
This edgy look has a few components: a close shave on the sides, long hair on top, and a bun at the back. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also some facial hair thrown in!
Long, side-swept haircuts are an excellent choice if you want something that’s edgy, but not necessarily weird. Done right, this can be an extremely attractive style.
The secret here is to keep it messy! Anyone can pull this one off as long as you have a strong jawline, people with a rounder face may need to grow some facial hair first, otherwise you might end up looking like a balloon.
Known as the rockstar’s favorite, the shaggy and messy combination is not only super easy to maintain, but it also makes you look way cooler instantly.
The Faux Hawk has been around for a long time, but recently gained a lot of space because of its wild and funky style. Recommended especially for those with round faces, the faux gives your head more shape and definition, contrasting with the roundness of your head, helping to avoid the “baby face” stigma.
Only for people with blessed genes. If you have a healthy thick hair, a simple low pony will work in your look as a cool accessory. It’s easy to do, low maintenance, and looks really good.
Before choosing a haircut, we recommend you to always ask your hairdresser for his opinion since he probably knows what will suit better your face shape and hair type.
Dashing Strands with High Volume
Powerful undercuts are nothing out of the ordinary nowadays. With that said, this high-contrast undercut is coupled with an angular part, strands at the front, and plenty of tattoos. Edgy? Yes.
Undercut Winged Mid-Part
Here’s a really unique style: take the solid base that is an undercut, and add a partition down the middle. This old-fashioned look works great for an edgy, hipsterish feel when combined with facial hair.
Silvery-White Burst Fade
Any style can be given a bit of edgy style by adding vibrant color, made even edgier if that color sharply contrasts anything we see day to day. This look is given a touch of personality through the contrast between the burst fade, the fringe, and the bright, eye-catching white coloring.
Textured Angular Fringe
A simple fringe like this would be pretty common, if not for all the texture that’s been added. This angular, messy look definitely feels like an edgy haircut.
A mohawk, any way you cut it, is an extremely edgy ‘do — but have you seen the psychobilly mohawk? Let’s just say it will make your jaws drop.
Push that Classy Hair Back with Faded Side
If regular undercuts are too boring for you, then you can always kick them up a notch by shaving the sides extra short. Just add a beard for this ultra-masculine, modern look.
Hard Part Pompadour
This pompadour has plenty of volume and not one, but two hard parts for an edgy twist. Add sunglasses, a piercing, and some facial hair, and the resulting look feels very modern.
Starting with the most overly present style in the world, every men and boy out there seems to be getting one, from Hollywood’s finest Jude Law, to worldwide known football star David Beckham. The undercut is perfect for those who have square shaped faces, contrasting greatly with strong jawlines, making them look sharper and stronger.
Modern Quiff Hairstyle
A quiff is nothing too special on its own. But introduce plenty of waviness and texture on top, and you end up with a somewhat edgy, but still restrained look.
Don't Bring Me Home to Mama
This is a very bold style that will definitely allow you to make a statement wherever you go. This look challenges the rules of the Mushroom Cut with sharp edges but maintains the form, and that paired with shaved sides gives the desired peak to compliment the style.
Justin Bieber's Side Swept Dyed Fringe
Here’s Justin Bieber’s take on the long, side-swept haircut. To make it just that extra bit edgier, he’s also dyed his hair a light blonde.
Dyed Bangs with Hard Undercut
Crop hairstyles are already perceived as edgy, but if you add a short fade at the sides and some colorful highlights, this is what you get. There’s no doubt you’ll stand out with this look!
The dishevelled look is a mix of a more classic look with a contemporaneous touch, styling it to the sides using some matte will give you a perfect edgy look. Well-worn by all ages and hair types, this cut looks great on most face shapes, it is recommended for rounder faces to avoid leaving too much width on the sides.
Practical, stylish and easy to maintain, definitely among the best edgy has to offer.
Black and White Back Swept
For those of you who like to keep things slightly spiced up and let the hair speak for itself – getting a black & white back swept could drastically change your everyday look. With the cut and colours like these you could easily impress people from the first second you enter the room. Think about it: this is the style that tells people more about you and your rebel charisma even without you saying anything.
