10 best hairstyles and haircuts for men:

Hairstyles for men with long hair:

Long hair can be parted and finished with mousse or a hint or gel for a glossy look. Another option for a formal look is the ‘Side Part Pompadour,’ which is a modern take on the classic Pompadour. In this case, pomade is applied to the hair, parted to one side and then brushed to the side.

A classic slicked back look with taper fade gives a subtle, natural finish to long hair.

Hairstyles for men with thin hair:

The military inspired haircut also known as ‘Crew cut’ works wonders for a thinning hairline. It is clean, efficient and requires almost no maintenance. To style, one can simply dab a little product and push hair forward from the back.

For those with wavy hair and a receding hairline, the clean taper works best. The haircut adds volume and texture. A quick taper along the hairline, gives a clean finish.

Hairstyles for men with curly hair:

A bald fade works best with a mop of curly hair. The razor-high fade from the sides adds character and looks well for a formal occasion, too. The high and tight recon is similar to a Mohawk and looks good on curly or wavy mane.

Apart from these, very short hairstyles for men comprise of the buzz cut or the super short crop.

Texturized paper, super short mane and the blunt-cut are good short hairstyles for round faces.
