Fall Hairstyles for Men are not a walk in the park to pull off. You’ll want something warm, neat, and tidy, but that can also withstand windy weather without winding up a disheveled mess. We recommend all types of messy hair for fall hairstyles, layered cuts, bowl cuts, layered bowl cuts, and fringes – all work amazing, particularly if you’ve got wavy hair.
We put together the most in fall hairstyles right now. Look ahead, pick something, and be ready to go out and about in style! After all, autumn is the only season that’s also a fashion statement.
1. Messy Wavy Fringe with Short Sides Fall Hairstyles for Men
You can’t go wrong with a hairstyle this careless. Of course, the trick is that it’s not careless at all! It’s slightly trimmed along the edges and the sides hang slightly over the short fade.
No beard is recommended. Yet, if you want to add a beard to this, make sure it’s short and styled.
What to ask for messy wavy hair, trimmed along the edge, short sides, full shave.
2. Side Swept Fringe Fall Hairstyles for Men
Chestnut brown is so in this season and if your hair rocks that color, never change my dude!
The side fringe works best if your hair is straight and fine. It can be made to work with thick hair but you’ll have a hard time controlling that mess. Unless you’re into that. You can easily work a beard into this look, your call!
What to ask for shorter side, side swept fringe, and short stubble (if you don’t already have a beard).
3. Messy Long Hair with Choppy Bangs
Going for that fancy-free look? This one is perfect if your hair is blonde! The choppy bangs make this look extra casual, but you know what? I’m down for it. Especially with those glasses!
What to ask for: just a trim and bangs, mostly all you have to do is NOT go to the barber.
4. Super Tight Curls with Taper Drop Fade and Short Bushy Beard
This just looks tight, especially with those two small lines to the side. What I love most about this look is the slight French crop that you can see right at the front. Then the sides are tapered just right, finally descending into a drop fade. Impressive!
What to ask for: honestly exactly what I said in the name: tight curls, taper drop fade, short bushy beard, a small decal of two lines on the side. Always get the picture.
5. Slightly Angled Shape-up with Drop Fade Fall Hairstyles for Men
Love this style! It looks so natural, especially if you have a diamond-shaped face like this dude right here.
You don’t even need a very good barber for this one, most of the ones that deal with kinky hair should know how to fix you up!
What to ask for: simple medium length shape up, a bit wider at the top, and a bit of a drop fade, not too much.
6. Extra Tight Pompadour with Short Sides Fall Hairstyles for Men
This one looks like the next natural step from an overgrown undercut. Not to be misunderstood though, this fall hairstyle looks amazing. You could say it’s perfect for autumn since the locks will probably go blowing in the wind but still look fresh. Don’t really like the beard though.
What to ask for: Pompadour with short, shaved sides.
7. Disheveled Auburn Hair with Very Subtle Part
It’s difficult to know whether this fall haircut is parted or just combed that way, but nonetheless, there is a slight part. Love the color here. Honestly, it’s amazing. Don’t get a beard with this hair because you’re probably going to look a bit too homeless.
What to ask for: honestly, just a trim to size, and then you have to keep the style. Oh and a full shave.
8. Spiky Shape Up with Short Sides
The spikes on this one aren’t that spiky, but they’re shaped up and textured just like I love them. The best thing about this look is how it all comes together perfectly. The tight fade, the short zero fade beard with no sideburns. Oh, and the rimless round glasses!
What to ask for: long spikes, tight fade, no sideburns, short beard
9. Medium Choppy Hair with Bangs
This hairdo was chopped with absolutely no remorse. And we love it! What you need for this to work are some long bangs and no beard.
What to ask for: just go chopping like crazy, leave the bangs hanging (maybe also bring a picture)
10. Messy French Crop with Undercut and High Skin Fade
This is one of the best short haircuts right now. You have to have that diamond face shape and the slender body type to absolutely nail this look. An impeccable fashion sense might help too! Like this guy – red carpet approved!
What to ask for French crop with undercut and simple fade
We’ve put together more cropped hairstyles here!
11. Wavy Forward Sweep with Drop Fade Fall Hairstyles for Men
The drop fade almost defines this haircut, but actually, it’s the slight fringe that makes this one of the best fall hairstyles. For looks and for practical reasons.
What to ask for: forward swept waves with short sides and a drop fade
12. The Messy Man Bun Fall Hairstyles for Men
You might think this looks too messy but if you’ve got the style to pull it off, it’s actually an amazing fall hairstyle. And if you can find a poncho like the one in the photo, you get extra points for style.
What to ask for: you don’t need a barber for this one, just long straight hair
13. Choppy Messy Fall Hairstyles for Men
There’s no rhyme or reason to this hairstyle and honestly, we’re in love with it! No need to care for it, no need to style it.
You might need some hair gel, applied liberally, but that’s it! No beard is a must.
What to ask for just a choppy mess
14. Tousled Layered Hair with No Beard
The second look from English actor James Norton on this list, and we’re all for it! This time, he swept his dreamy locks to the side and just ran his hand through it with some hair gel to give it that textured, tousled look.
What to ask for: when you have a hair type like this, you just need a trim, always!
15. Disorderly Wavy Shape Up Fall Hairstyles for Men
Pretty basic but with lots of style potential, especially with that short stubble beard. With wavy hair, every autumn hairstyle will look good!
What to ask for: short sides, disheveled waves up top, and the sides need to be faded but still slightly longer than a basic fade
16. Diagonal Part, Side Sweep, and Short Faded Sides
What helps this hairstyle work even during fall’s windy grasp is that diagonal part. Because that’s there, you won’t look completely wrong when the wind upends your `do!
What to ask for: just like the name says, diagonal part, side swept fringe and short sides with a mid fade
17. Extra Messy Curly Hair Forward-Sweep
Sometimes you just want to look like you got out of bed. Well if you’ve got long, thick curls, you can pull this style off easily! When it comes to fall hairstyles that just work, this is one of them!
What to ask for: forward swept mess, slightly trimmed
18. Pompadour with Blonde Highlights Fall Hairstyles for Men
Adding a bit of color to your fall hairstyles is a cool way to go this season. Pair it with a nice thick pomp hairdo and you’ve got a hot look to go out with!
What to ask for: a pomp with some blonde highlights. Not every barber knows how to do highlights, and also it might turn out expensive. Consider having a friend help you with that before or after going to the barber.
Take a look on our pompadour page if you can’t get enough of this style!
19. White Hair Disheveled Look Fall Hairstyles for Men
Men with white or silver hair tend to look very distinguished, no matter the hairstyle they go for. Naturally, during fall, it’s best to just leave it carelessly waving around. This fall hairstyle uses that trick to turn it into a stunner!
What to ask for: medium messy-spiky look, somehow like a faux hawk
20. Side Parted Short Hair
Simple and effective. You need hair that’s a bit straighter and easier to maintain. This might turn out to be too much of a schoolboy look for you, but it’s still a good one for fall.
What to ask for: simple side part, short sides.
21. Parted Man Bun
This look might be a bit too extra for some. It’s really anyone’s guess if you can pull it off. But fortune favors the bold, and this hairstyle is nothing if not bold.
What to ask for: honestly just bring a picture, it might not be so easy to understand what you want.
22. Silver Tousled Pomp with Short Sides
If you’re still looking for silver hair types, this one might do the trick for you. Honestly, it’s mostly in the eyes here – if you’ve got those dreamy blue eyes, just go for it, no questions asked. I love the faded sides, looks very cool, especially from this angle!
What to ask for: tousled pomp, nothing too fancy, and faded sides.
23. Simple Widow’s Peak Pomp for Older Men
Receding hairlines aren’t a problem with this hairdo. Looking serious and extremely on point, this will be the talk of the town, or of your very own company if you already own one. I’m guessing, if you go for this look, you do.
What to ask for: simple pompadour cut, slight widow’s peak.
24. The Bedhead Look Fall Hairstyles for Men
Nothing says “I don’t even care” better than this fall hairstyle. It looks cool, especially if you still shave. This dude might be a bit too cold, however, given that he’s going out with his shirt half buttoned down.
What to ask for: messy medium hair, lightly trimmed around the edges, and then all you need is to wait for it to grow.
25. Tousled Medium Hair with Short Sides
This is similar to number 22 on our list, except it’s not a pomp and it’s not silver. Still looks cool, especially paired with that type of beard.
What to ask for: medium length hair, slightly tousled, short sides, and even shorter beard.
26. Forward Swept Spikes with Tight Fade
Another fall hairstyle that’s both simple and effective. The line on the side may look cool, but unless you’ve got z curls (aka afro-texture), you won’t get to see it that much. These types of designs typically disappear in a week or so.
What to ask for: long, forward swept spikes, high fade, with a simple line across the side.
27. Short Spiky Afro
No sideburns and only a very short goatee add to the novelty of this hairstyle! Very tight and very appropriate for fall. However, you do need a very good barber to pull this off!
What to ask for: short spiky afro, and bring a picture.
28. Overgrown Pompadour
This simple hairstyle reminds me of number 18 on our list if you let it grow out a bit. Which is definitely not a bad idea. And then just go to the barber again for a trim when you feel like it.
What to ask for: just a simple overgrown pomp, highlights, and a short beard.
29. The Messy Long White Hair
If you still have a full head of hair, congratulations! You can definitely pull off this look that’s all the rage right now. You can even style it yourself if you’re brave enough!
What to ask for: let it grow out and just go for a trim from time to time. Use lots of pomade to keep it styled.
30. Simple Styled Haircut with Fade
The simple, timeless fall look. A slight part separates the styled slicked-back hair from the short, faded sides. Nothing too fancy, but the end result is perfect!
What to ask for: simple slick back with fades
