We have comprised in this article a comprehensive selection of 50 outstanding mens hairstyles for you to choose from. They work for men with all types of hair, ranging from short to medium to long. You will also find options depending on what type of hair you have, be it fine, wavy, curly, thick, thinning, straight, fine hair, and so on. Therefore, without much ado, let’s take a look at our list of mens hairstyles!
1. The Man Bun with Undercut
The uber famous man bun has been on the rise for a few years now and it shows no signs of backing down. However, if you want an upgrade, you can always pair yours with an undercut or a slight fade. Also, did you know they make attachable man buns now? Yup.
2. Mens Hairstyles for Special Occasions
Here’s one which you could wear to your prom or even your wedding. It’s a high pompadour combined with a buzz cut on the sides. The icing on the cake are the two fine braids that accompany the pompadour on each side.
3. Wavy Mens Hairstyles
If you happen to have wavy hair and you love it, the best thing to do is to get a medium, textured and layered cut. Don’t part it on any side and use copious amounts of wax or mousse to give it a tousled look.
4. Long Mens Hairstyles
When you have long hair as a man, there is little you can do about it, other than looking completely awesome and badass. Pro tip – invest in a range of high quality hair care products to take care of that mane.
5. The Short Afro
Keep it funky and cool with a short afro. It’s the best of both worlds since it still has all the benefits of an actual afro but less of all the taking care of it. Use some hair oil to soften it up and make it easier to tame.
6. The Pompadour with Thick Beard
We have now come to the look that has become almost a uniform in the past two or three years. It seems there’s isn’t a man, or celebrity for that matter, alive who hasn’t gone for the sleek back hair plus beard look. Jump on the trend!
7. Long Meets Undercut
Two worlds meet on top of your head with this haircut. One side is cut very short, almost boyish, while the other enjoys a very bohemian, long haired treatment. Be careful because this cut requires a lot of trimming.
8. Curly Medium Mens Hairstyles
Curly haired men are heartthrobs and they know it. There’s just something about the way they run their hands through their hair that gets all the ladies. Let your hair grow and try out some highlights that will bring out your eyes and complexion.
9. The Undercut
Here is a very modern and hip way to look butch. It’s called the undercut and it basically means that you can shave the sides of your head, while leaving the rest of your hair intact. It works great if you’re wearing accessories or have tattoos.
10. Natural Mens Hairstyles
Sometimes, natural really is best. When you have very curly hair, that envelops all around your head in tiny ringlets, why not go for a medium cut? It’s very trendy right now. As you may have noticed, all the male models are wearing it.
11. The Hard Part
The hard part is the line, usually on one side of the head, created with a razor, that used to feature in many of the old classic haircuts. Nowadays, barbers have put some new spins on it, making it a bit more theatrical.
12. Modern Punk Mens Hairstyles
In fact, barbers nowadays have managed to put a new spin on everything, including the old-fashioned cuts, such as the punk one. Here is what it looks like now. By the way, it also includes a beard, so you’d better start growing one.
13. Silver Fox Mens Hairstyles
Many men wrongly believe that after you’ve reached a certain age there’s no use in trying anymore. Gentlemen, it’s time you shook those thoughts away. Here’s a perfect example of a beard and hairstyle for the third age to inspire you.
14. Romantic Mens Hairstyles
The amazing detail about this haircut is the very long bangs. They are very versatile, which means you can wear them any way you like – on the left, on the right, parted down the middle, or even sweep them over to the back.
15. Modern Elf Mens Hairstyles
If you like hair accessories and braids, as well as ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and, let’s face it, who doesn’t. you could always go for the modern elf look. Choose your hair embellishments well, and use a few hair rings to match, preferably gold and shiny.
16. Short Dreads
We couldn’t possibly talk about mens hairstyles without referring dreads. Here they are in the short, easier to maintain version. They look sexy and sleek, especially when coupled with a soft and well-trimmed beard.
17. The Man Braid
Braids are gaining more and more attention when it comes to mens hairstyles. They have long stopped being the realm of the ladies and it’s a good thing too. Just look how fabulous a simple three strand braid can look.
18. The Pink Short Afro
If you are really bold and artistic, you can always dye your afro in an unconventional color. This is a very short one in a bubble gum pink shade that we simply fell in love with. The idea here is not to be afraid to experiment with color and texture.
19. The Blonde Afro
In the same way, you could also go for a longer afro, but blonde this time. The really is no barrier left in mens hairstyles in this day and age and the sooner you come to realize that, the better. Enjoy your hair freedom!
20. The Viking Braid
Speaking of braids, we couldn’t possibly miss the daddy of them all, Ragnar Lothbrook’s braid in hit TV series ‘Vikings.’ It’s one long, traditional, warrior braid, with shaved sides, which later on in the series, Ragnar decorates with tattoos.
21. Short Sides and Messy Tops
This is a haircut that will make you look fresh and young. The shaved sides will give your face a much slimmer and slender appearance, while the tousled top will make you seem like a teenager.
22. The Buzz Cut
Here is another classic on our list of mens hairstyles, the buzz cut. Initially borrowed from the army, the buzz cut slowly made its way into fashion and style. It is now one of the most beloved mens hairstyles of all times.
23. Hair Designs in Mens Hairstyles
There are a few things you need to check off your list if you want to be hip and trendy. One of those things are hair designs. It doesn’t matter what pattern you choose or what inspires you, as long as your scalp tells a story.
24. The Modern Mohawk
The Mohawk was faced with an upgrade as well in the past couple of years. It might have lost a bit of the punk edge it used to have back in its glory days, but it gained a lot of sparkle and glamor in its latest version.
25. Dreads in a Man Bun
You can also combine two trends if you want to show your creativity when it comes to mens hairstyles. For example, here is a gorgeous man bun, made up of dreadlocks. The best part of this look is that you can wear it at the office as well.
26. Curly with a Design
Continuing the idea of combining two trends, here is curly hair with shaved side and hair designs. The main advantage of this cut is that it looks phenomenal from every side you choose to look at it.
27. Hipster Men Hairstyles
You can do very little wrong if you decide to go hipster on your hair. On this dark side of the style moon, creativity is truly at home. Therefore, whatever goes through your head, can also go on your head, hair wise.
28. Long Braids
As mentioned before, braids are truly in this season as far as mens hairstyles are concerned. Here’s a tip, though. Don’t be afraid to grow them as long as you want. Pair them off with a killer beard and you’re good to go.
29. The Jamie Dornan
When actor Jamie Dornan decided to take the lead role in ’50 Shades of Grey’, the world took notice of him and his outstanding good looks. Here he is sporting a massive beard and a haircut which is called a widow’s peak.
30. Mens Hairstyles for Thick Hair
If you have thick hair, stylists usually recommend that you go for a short and simple haircut. Also, you should try one that is easier to maintain, as thick hair can sometimes be more a hassle than a blessing.
31. Long a Curly Mens Hairstyles
When curly hair is at play, there are two types of men in the world. Those who cut it short and hide it away and those who bask in its glory and grow it as long as possible. You should find yourself in the latter category at least once in your lifetime.
32. Short and Spiky Mens Hairstyles
Spikes were a huge craze in the 90s and early 2000s, we all know that. However, if you are nostalgic after those lost days, you can revive that hairstyle, provided you upgraded it a little. For example, you can always dye your spikes platinum blonde.
33. The Brushed up Fringe
One way in which you can deal with you overgrown fringe is by brushing it back and arranging it in a quiff. It will look like a faux pompadour, with shaved sides and a very cool top. Use high quality products.
34. The Classic Side Part
When talking about mens hairstyles, we also need to refer to the classic one. And we’ve chosen none other than Cap himself, a very elegant guy, to exemplify the classic side part. Personified by actor Chris Evans, Captain America is hair goals all around.
35. The Medium Messy Cut
If you’re a very ‘no fuss’ kind of guy, then this is definitely the type of haircut for you. Grow it to a medium size and then simply use a small blob of wax every time you want to style it. Run your fingers through your hair and you’re done.
36. Business Mens Hairstyles
Businessmen are often wondering what they can do to look a bit chicer and in trend. Now you have an answer. The fact that you are in the office all day and don’t have time to groom doesn’t mean you have to look dull at all.
37. The Short Fringe
There’s just something about guys with fringes, isn’t it? They have a very relaxed and confident air about them, which starts with a very good haircut. If you want to go all the way, don’t forget about the unconventional hair color and nose ring.
38. Mens Hairstyles with Highlights
If your skin tone is darker or if you happen to have a fantastic summer tan, then you can emphasize all that by adding some highlights or peekaboos in your hair. Go for some lighter and natural, sun-kissed ones.
39. The Curly Quiff
In case you have curly hair and want to show it off but without all the hassle of a full head of curls, here is what you can do. Opt for the curly quiff. It means that your hair will only be long and curly on top, making it easier to maintain.

43. The Hairbrush
Does this remind you a bit of the 80s? That’s because it should. We specifically loved the color combination in this one. Apart from that, the dye job is fantastic. The separation lines between the black and blue are absolutely perfect.

46. The Eddie Redmayne
Actor Eddie Redmayne is one Hollywood A-lister who is very much appreciated for his head of hair. We chose him for this list because of the easiness with which he wears his locks, an inspiration to us all. A bit of wax, runs his fingers through his hair and that is all.

Here’s a look that transitions seamlessly from day to night. This basically means that you can wear it during daytime at the office and for meetings and then you can go to a party or for a date in the evening no problem whatsoever.
48. The Zayn Malik Hair Strand
A lot of ink and tears poured from women all over the world when the incident with ‘the strand’ happened. According to the singer himself, it was unplanned. We don’t know if it is true or not. All we know is that we love it and that we plan to shamelessly copy it to get the ladies’ attention as well.
49. The Wavy Bob

With the advent of Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’, the world found out who Dan Stevens is and just how handsome him and his hair really are. He has a massively gorgeous head of hair, naturally chestnut brown, which he wears in a classic cut parted on one side. A little bit of wax helps him keep his very luxurious locks in place and not shadow his face or shockingly blue eyes. This is a model to follow if there ever was one.
