Fashion trends come and go, but haircuts rarely go out of fashion. Modern haircuts never go away easily, and others stick around for centuries. True men's cuts should be timeless. Why fix something that's not broken? The good thing is that there are many haircuts out there. You can easily find one that's good for you. Below is a list of the top 25 impressive types of haircuts for men.


Taper fade

The taper fade is classic, clean, versatile, and a crowd-pleaser. It's moderately sharp, meaning you go with it to the office but still rock it when you are off-duty.
A taper fade transitions smoothly from nothing to blended length. It starts from the top of the neck and goes up to the parietal edge as it gets darker.

The lower taper fade

The lower taper fade who want to look clean without changing a lot about their hair. A low taper fade begins just above the ears and shortens gradually until it reaches the upper part of the jawline, where the stubble starts growing.

Curly fade

People with curly hair usually have difficulty finding a suitable haircut. The curly fade is one of the best styles for curly hair because it eliminates the additional weight of your curls without removing a significant portion.
You can even have a fade styled forward, the same as the French cop and Cease taper fade.

High fade

The high fade is the perfect haircut for the bold. This fade begins high up the head and infringes on the crown. It offers a huge contrast between the sides of the head and the top.

The crew cut

The crew cut is the hairstyle you see on many soldiers (we don't know why they love it). The crew cut is simple and highly adaptable. The style involves cutting the top of the hair short and as it shortens to the back of the crown.
It can work with any face shape, including round-faced guys (don't listen to the myth that crew cuts are only perfect for guys with diamond faces).

The undercut style leaves the top hair full length but buzzes the sides and the back. This hairstyle defines your facial features while emphasizing the hair volume.
This hairstyle is great for wavy, straight, or permed hairstyles. This undercut can make you look fresh and stand out from the crowd. Note that this haircut has been around for over seven decades.

Pompadour hairstyle

A pompadour haircut is a short hairstyle that features a slicked-back design with additional volume at the top. The style can be worn for a casual setting or for formal occasions.
The pompadour hairstyle is popular because many celebrities wear it. Some people even call it the Hollywood royalty hairstyle.

When it comes to face shapes, the perfect face for this style is the square face. However, people with round faces can rock the style but should be very choosy.
Guys with thin faces can choose a shorter version of the pompadour.

Side part haircut

The style involves cutting the sides and top of the head the traditional way to give the hair an all-around appearance.
This style works for people with thicker hair, but people with fine hair can also try it.

Side part with taper fade

The haircut combines two of the most popular haircuts to create that sophisticated look that men love. The top of the head is given the custom cut while the sides and back are trimmed. The sides are trimmed gradually, such that the top part has longer hair than the bottom part near the ears.
This is the appropriate hairstyle for guys with square faces.

Slicked back side part

The slicked back side part involves sweeping the sides of the head using a moderate shine pomade while parting the hair. The hair is then combed flat and styled to curve along the growth direction. Note that combing towards the direction of growth blends in cowlicks.
Curly-haired men can wear the hairstyle as long as they use a strong pomade and a wide-tooth comb.

Buzz cut

This cool haircut allows your hair to fall over the forehead, whether it has volume or is just flat.
Everyone suits the fringe hairstyle. The only thing you need to consider is the length of the fringe. The flattering bangs complement the features of your face.
