We often talk about haircuts as if they’re singular styles that can’t be adjusted. Of course, this is definitely not the case, and unique neckline hair designs are just one of many ways to spice up a cut. In this gallery, we’ve compiled images of some cool and creative neckline hair cuts that you can add to your favorite style.

A clean cut is probably the most common neckline hair design; in this case, a little added trimming above the neckline gives adds robustness to an already manly buzz cut.

Disconnected Neckline with Fade

Aside from the clean cut, a fade is one of the most popular motifs in neckline hair designs. Here’s a simple fade with a few disconnects to break up the simple rear of this style.

Horizontal Neckline Disconnects

In the previous neckline styles, we’ve seen a few disconnects used to break up a boring mass of hair. Similar disconnects can be all the more striking just by placing them on a horizontal alignment.

It’s difficult to put your finger on what makes this design so cool, but we think it’s a combination of the diagonal swoop (which almost goes perpendicular to parts of the left hairline) and the wide disconnect.
