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.

These straight neckline cuts have been carefully placed to add new angles to an otherwise smooth and flowing haircut. That tiny curl is a nice touch, too!

Margoned Neckline with Low Fade

This particular neckline hair design is another approach to drawing any cut to a sharp close. The added cuts create a novel, layered look to break up the style nicely.

Double Disconnected Design

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.

The possibilities for neckline hair designs are endless. In this case, plenty of long and fierce sweeping cuts are trimmed into a sharp, curved neckline for a style that’s a little out of the ordinary.

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.

Weeping Neckline Design

This one is another fade neckline, with a totally unique pattern carved onto the left side of the neck. Long spikes stick out from the bottom, with a light trim through the middle to create a tear-like effect.

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.

Scribble Neckline Design with Long Angled Top
@jtnstylist

Scribble Neckline Design with Long Angled Top

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.

11/37
Undercut with Tri-Line Shave
@b.a.r.b.e.i.r.o.s

Undercut with Tri-Line Shave

Even as simple as three convergent lines shaved onto the undercut can add an eye-popping element to your hairstyle. A stylish faux hawk from the front and then this tri-line shave on the side — this is definitely a cool ‘do from all angles!

This neckline design features some very interesting details like the jagged edge and the two lines shaved diagonally on the back. Try this if you want to make a cool undercut even better.

Blonde Undercut with Designed Neckline
@johnny_snips

Blonde Undercut with Designed Neckline

You don’t necessarily have to sport a bold and elaborate design to turn heads with your hairstyle. Something as subtle (yet creative) as this can make an impact as well.

Tiger's Paw

Now if you want to walk on the wild side, here’s the neckline design for you. What could be fiercer than a tiger’s claw marks?

Thin Arrow Neckline Design
@javi_thebarber_

Thin Arrow Neckline Design

A daring neckline shape with perfectly neat and crisp edges looks great, but why stop there? Jazz it up further with a thin arrow design like this and you’ll really be turning heads!

@omargadier_78

Slanted, Faded and Crossed Neckline

Wow! As if that razor-sharp slanted edge plus the hypnotic fades on both sides weren’t impressive enough, the shaved cross adds an even more spectacular element. This is definitely the height of creativity!

@iisakkinummi

Shaved Slit with Low Tapered Neckline

Neckline designs that extend to the beard always look so cool. Here, the shaved slit starts behind the ear and continues down to the bushy beard for a simple yet eye-catching look.

Disconnected cuts and hard lines are some of the most striking styles when it comes to men’s hair. And when you put them together in one style, you get something as statement-making as this!

Winged Neckline
@r.braid

Winged Neckline

The awesome texture on this haircut is definitely giving us Logan/Wolverine vibes. And the silhouette is echoed on the neckline, which makes the entire look even better!

Striped Neckline with Tattoo
@r.braid

Striped Neckline with Tattoo

It makes perfect sense to show off a stunning tattoo like this by wearing a high skin fade. And when you add some stripe designs, you elevate it further into a spectacular display of body art plus hair art.

Angular Disconnected Neckline

The angular look of this haircut is jaw-dropping — kind of like cubism done on hair. And the disconnected neckline provides the perfect finishing touch to the artsy look.

@OfficialCuts

Blow Out with Layered Neckline

Now this is a hairstyle that really makes a statement from any angle. Definitely an awesome look from the spiky top all the way down to the perfectly layered neckline.

Turbulent Neckline
@andrewdoeshair

Turbulent Neckline

If you want to make your neckline the focal point of your hairstyle, choose a design as artistic as this. Then you can keep the rest simple and just let that neckline do all the talking.

Disconnected Neckline with Semi-Blow Out
@egobarbers

Disconnected Neckline with Semi-Blow Out

As you can see here, disconnected designs look amazing on thicker hair too because they have a more pronounced appearance. The lines along the neckline and side really amp up the edge factor on this semi blowout.

27/37

@egobarbers

Wavy Messy Top with Dyed Highlights

Fancy Shaved Neckline
@rafaxhair

Fancy Shaved Neckline

A lot of times, the most random and abstract designs end up being the most eye-catching simply because they’re so unique. So don’t be afraid to experiment.

Afro Weaved Neckline
@onlytopbarbers

Afro Weaved Neckline

What better way to embellish your neckline than with a design that looks almost three-dimensional? This is sure to drop jaws!

@ moohammad_hamze

Textured Blow Back and Pointy Neckline Design

On a scale of 1 to 10, this is definitely an 11 in terms of creativity! That pointy neckline looks awesome, the three-line design reflected in the beard is ingenious, and the height and texture at the top provide the perfect finishing touch.

Have you seen a more mesmerizing neckline than this? The triangle designs paired with the light-and-shade effect make for a really stunning hairstyle!

Straight Angle Pompadour and Hardline Design
@ moohammad_hamze

Straight Angle Pompadour and Hardline Design

The extreme height of this pompadour alone is worthy of a GQ spread. But what gives the hairstyle a unique touch is the line design along the neckline.

34/37
Dropped Fade with Pocky Neckline
@ace.symmetric

Dropped Fade with Pocky Neckline

Is that a Bat caved back there? The volume here is quite a mystery as it gets quite thick on top but thin on the sides and the back. The dropped fade is a neat touch to the look with the back being curved shaped.

35/37
Curly Top with Pocky Undercut Neckline
@ _barbeariadesucesso_

Curly Top with Pocky Undercut Neckline

Undercut and curly textured top go hand in hand. The shaved slit is for sure an added bonus but the sides with clean look enables the curled top to pop out even more.

36/37
Ginger Casual Top with Slit Neckline
@egobarbers

Ginger Casual Top with Slit Neckline

Casual brush-up tops are the best pair to fades and when done right it results in this gem of a style. The slit shave on the back is just that touch of finesse that the look needs to be just perfect.

37/37
That Curl Desnity with Angular Neckline
@andrewdoeshair

That Curl Density with Angular Neckline

The contrast of top to the neckline is the point of attraction here with the top being all thin curled the neckline is almost batman-ised. The slits on both ends infuse a look of clean cuts with that dense “V” sitting right in between.
