Men’s haircuts have come a long way over the years and they’re getting edgier by the day. Anyone can try the bad boy look and you don’t need to get a mohawk or color your hair green to get it. If you’re looking to switch things up with a new style that’ll transform your look into something edgier, here are a few cuts to try.
This is a safe hairstyle that’s not too wild and it’ll look great on pretty much any face shape. You can also go on the shorter side if you like, which is much more trendy now. It’s a great look even for men with natural curls.
The military cut
This modern style is probably the most masculine cut you’ll see today. Every guy should try this cut at least once in their lifetime because even though it’s on the riskier side, most men can pull it off.
The classic crew cut
This is a classy and timeless cut that you can make even more sleek and modern, by going for full skin fade on the sides and back as well. To wash it, simply use a gentle oil cleanser to keep the hair clean and moisturized without stripping your hair of its natural oils.
Textured undercut fringe
This look is great for anyone wanting to hide a big forehead and will make your face look more symmetrical. Also, if you’re looking for something that’ll compliment your face and give you that edgy, sporty vibe, this is it.
The French crop
This cut has a lot of straight lines with minimal shading, adding a lot of edginess to the aesthetic. The sides and back are shaved down to skin level to really exaggerate that contrast and the whole point of this look is to emphasize texture and jagged edges as much as possible. It’s super unique and the fringe and top of the head are cut at an angle to create that unique texturized finish. Moisture is key for this style and you’ll want to go for a hair cream that’ll create an airy finish and separation.
Disconnected dyed undercut
With this hairstyle, the top is left much longer than the sides, which are totally shaved. This separation of the hair’s top and sides gives the style shape and causes the eye to be drawn to the top. You can give the look even more edge by coloring it a nice ombre hue.
The faux hawk is particularly recommended for men with round-shaped faces because it contrasts with the roundness of your head, and gives your head more shape and definition while helping you avoid the “baby face” look.
The mushroom cut
This very daring look will turn heads wherever you go. You can make it even edgier by sharpening the edges which when combined with shaved sides can create a more pronounced peak to complete the style.
Hard part pompadour
The pompadour hairstyle, popularized in the 1950s, is a timeless classic that offers a stylish, modern look. It’s versatile in nature with endless styling possibilities, as evidenced by the hard part pompadour which is characterized by two parts. This type of pompadour is a modern take and it’s all about volume.
Popularized by football star, David Beckham, undercut haircuts are particularly flattering for those with square-shaped faces and strong jawlines, as the sharp lines of the cut create a striking contrast that emphasizes their features.
The disheveled look
With a disheveled look, you get the best of both worlds: a timeless cut with modern touches such as texture, separation, and movement. As opposed to the structured and neat look of traditional barbershop cuts, disheveled styles provide a more relaxed and laid-back vibe.
With a good quality pomade, styling the hair to the sides or back of the head and tousling with your fingertips can give you a softer, more natural look.
