Men’s haircuts are never as complicated as those for women, but that doesn’t mean that everything is random here, or that any hairdo will do. Today we’re going to see what the trendiest short haircuts for men are and who can sport them with success. Many of this year’s hairstyles are inspired from Prohibition era styles, vintage-inspired haircuts or even celebrity special styles. However, take into account that these hairstyles don’t always work for every type of hair, so it’s best to find something that suits you.
One of the most interesting and masculine haircuts worn by men this year is the Prohibition High-and-Tight. If your hair stylist doesn’t know what that haircut is, show them a picture and they’ll get it, because it is not difficult to accomplish. To begin with, this hairstyle only looks good with straight hair, even if it’s fine or thick. You may have seen this haircut lately, as many Hollywood celebrities kept wearing it after playing 1920s bootleggers or gangsters, like Tom Hardy did in the movie Lawless. The way this haircut works is that the sides are very short, fading down into the nape of the neck, whereas the top is at least one inch and a half long, with blunt edges. Without a side part, there is no point to this haircut, so make sure you have it.
Fortunately, there are always short haircuts for men that also attract attention, dramatic styles if you want, like the Mainstream Hipster. This is a very modern hairstyle, and it works better with straight to slightly wavy hair of fine or medium texture. This haircut has shorter sides as well, but they can be of medium length, whereas the top of the head needs to be at least 3 inches long, so you can lift it and have volume. The front bump should be directed a bit to one side, and you should use product to keep it lifted.
If the previous short haircuts for men didn’t appeal to you and they seemed too difficult to achieve, then perhaps you will like The James Dean hairstyle better, because it is both masculine and sexy. You need to have wavy or curly hair to pull this off. The sides are shorter here too, and the top should be at least twice that length and blended. Use pomade and run it through the top hair, creating irregular curls.
