Top 10 Cool Short Hairstyles and Haircuts for Boys & Men
Now is the best time to take a look at the trendiest boys hairstyles and men’s haircuts for 2018. Nowadays, fashion isn’t only for women. In the last couple of years we’ve seen a huge resurgence in vintage barbering styles and classy undercuts. That’s because men are becoming more and more aware of their looks. But it’s no less important to feel comfortable than to look attractive. Despite the huge popularity of buns and shoulder-length hairstyles for men, short haircuts remain the ‘reigning kings’, due to their clean cuts and precise styling.
Short Haircuts and Hairstyles for Boys & Men
This year, the rules are out the window, as more and more boys have decided to make a statement and create their signature styles. You should definitely take a look at these fresh, classy and effortless men`s short hairstyles!
#1 : Pompadour Haircut
A disconnected pompadour is trendy right now. Hair is clipped close or faded on the sides and kept long and voluminous on top. This slicked back look is a jazzy quiff hairstyle that looks good on all men despite nationality. If you need a quiff haircut that feels new and different, go with the combed back pompadour that’s definitely trending upward. When it comes to haircuts for men that add length to such face shapes as round and square, this one is a nice, highly-recommended choice.
#2 : High Bald Fade with Cropped Fringe
As one of the newest haircuts to hit the scene, this cropped fringe features a high bald fade. Styled in a natural, textured way, this hairstyle is good for guys of any hair type, including fine or thin hair.
#3 : Short Sides with Medium Length Hair on Top
This low skin fade is combined with a spiky side swept fringe and short textured hair in the back. Coupled with a cool beard, this look will make the girls swoon.
#4 : Slicked Back Hair with Short Sides
The slick back has traditionally been a retro style, but the modern version works best worn loose and textured.
#5 : Low Fade with Long Fringe
Longer styles have been a popular trend this year. This thick and textured fringe on top is coupled with a low taper fade on the sides for a stylish look. And with just enough length on top to let your hair become wavy, we highly recommend this cool men’s haircut for young guys!
#6 : High Fade with Loose Pompadour
Getting the pompadour haircut is easy, and requires only a good pair of clippers and 3 to 5 inches of hair on top. For the sides, guys can get a fade or undercut. Styling your pomp will require a quality pomade or wax, allowing you to add height and style. This pompadour incorporates a clean skin faded undercut and a full beard.
#7 : High Fade with Fohawk and Design
There are endless variations of hair designs, but this one is paired with an awesome fade haircut. What makes the fade so cool is how versatile yet low maintenance it is. Whether you pick a high, mid, low, bald, or taper on the sides, a fade works well with any modern short cut for men.
#8 : High Fade with Hard Part and Quiff
To get the quiff, you will need at least 3 inches of hair on top of your head. The sides will then be buzzed into a taper fade – how short is up to you. Guys have the option of a high, low, mid, or skin fade. For an extreme look, a very short clipper setting will create a lot of contrast, while those wanting a classic look can choose a gentler taper.
#9 : Man Bun and Beard
The man bun’s popularity has slowly waned, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get the look if you have long hair. Paired with a beard, the man bun hairstyle looks masculine and strong.
#10 : Layered Messy Long Hair
Looking around the fashion industry, here are the latest and most popular new hairstyles for guys in 2018.
With only a few month start in 2018, it’s time to look at the best cool new hairstyles for men in 2018. Many of the cool, trendy men’s hairstyles of earlier years will likely carry over to the new year, meaning that the most popular haircuts will likely continue to be fades, undercuts, pompadours, comb overs, quiffs, slick backs, and even man buns or top knots, if you can pull them off.
More specifically, expect a lot of “short sides, long top” hairstyles which combine a low or high fade with texturized hair on top. Perfect example would be the disconnected undercut, modern pompadour, slick back fade or cropped hair, all of which are included below. However, be on the look out for longer styles that are worn textured and loose.
I’m always trying to push the envelope and go with a different hairstyle that you’re not going to see on anybody else. I have a really good grade of hair, and I can do a lot of different things with it.
