One hairstyle for men is the shaved look. A man may choose this hairstyle because they prefer the low-maintenance look or because they are balding and would rather just shave it all off.

Short back and sides

Short back and sides is one of the most popular men's haircuts. As the name suggests, these hairstyles are very short and tapered on the back and sides, comparable to a US "crew cut."

Short and curly

Short and curly is a common hairstyle for men with curly hair. Overly curly hair can be unruly so cutting it into a short and curly hairstyle is easier to maintain.

Ivy League

The Ivy-League look is where the sides and back are cut relatively short and gets longer toward the front so that it can be styled neatly to one side.

Fade hairstyle

A fade is a commonly requested hairstyle for men. A fade hairstyle is where the sides and back of the hair are cut extremely short and then tapered up and cut longer as you reach the top of the head.
