There are already hundreds of different haircuts out there, but you can make all of them just a bit more unique by adding a simple haircut design to the sides or back. In fact, there are so many options for hairstyle combinations that it can be hard to choose. That’s why we’ve collected 17 of our favorite haircut designs for men in this handy album:
This fohawk is finished off with a plain ol’ high fade on the sides. It’s the four claw-shaped incisions that make this haircut design truly stand out!
Here’s another fohawk, where you can see just how much difference the haircut design makes. In this case, the dropped disconnect with two scratches across it gives a fierce, manly look.
This time it’s a totally different hairstyle — a very messy quiff — accompanied by a similar funkiness in the cut design. These crazy disconnects will definitely get heads turning.
You can continue your haircut designs into the facial hair, like in this style. Connecting top to bottom, this lined pattern is simple but effective.
By no means do you need to use symmetrical haircut designs. For this particular look, there’s a lined pattern rotating around both sides of the neck — but you can see it’s a lot more prominent on the right side.
Depending on the effect you’re looking for, you can create some really wild styles with these unique haircut designs. Here, angular cuts into the short side hair complement the colored flicks on top.
If you’re feeling funky, this is a haircut design for you. The short top hair guarantees a low maintenance look on the day-to-day basis, but the intricate side design adds plenty of flare.
You can also use these haircut designs to split your style in half — like here. The long top is styled into a very faux fohawk, and the skin-close sides are clearly delineated by a wild and curvy disconnect.
These haircut designs are limited by only one thing: your creativity. This style is a simple, gelled-back undercut, that’s levelled up with this unique bolt pattern on the side.
Who said one disconnect was enough? This disconnected pompadour takes the “more is better” approach to haircut designs, with doubled disconnects on the fading sides.
Here’s a cool idea for a hairline design: trim a reflecting pattern, like this. In the main body of hair, trim away your chosen shapes. Then, below the eventual hairline, leave the hair untrimmed in a reflection of those shapes.
You might not have seen this kind of domino pattern before, but your barber will love you for its simplicity. Just trim alternating patches with longer and shorter sizes, and you’re done!
This hairstyle has nearly everything — fades, curves, angles, highlights, and facial hair. It’s the angular neckline designs that really catch the eye, though.
Don’t focus too much on the extra voluminous top hair in this cut; instead, shift your attention to the horizontal temple design, which contrasts the light, pale skin with midnight black hair.
Here’s another temple design, but unlike others, it’s slightly more restrained in nature. A simple horizontal border creates plenty of whitespace in front of the ear, without overcomplicating things.
