Just like the face, a person's haircut is also subject to initial scrutiny as first glimpses are often directed toward the upper portion of the human body. Most of the time, people tend to closely examine hair cuts, and the face in general, to see if that person holds any appeal to them. Over the years, men's approach to hairstyling has come a long way. Men are becoming more experimental when it comes to hair styles, colour and texture. Famous profiles and celebrities are also added influence on how people sport their crops.

Pompadour Style

Men's classic short haircuts and hairstyles are timeless and will never go out of fashion. They will always look great and so does the pompadour haircut, or more commonly known as the James Dean style, made famous by the actor himself. Although the cut has varied slightly through the years, it has never completely gone out of style. Hair at the top is slightly thick while the sides and back are cut short and tapered. This type of cut works well on straight or slightly wavy hair type.

Faux Hawk

The faux hawk is named as so because it is like a mohawk. It is cut just like a mohawk but without cutting the sides. This type of haircut allows men to style their hair as much as they want. Celebrities such as Joe Jonas, David Beckham, Adam Levine, Adam Lambert, Elijah Wood and James McAvoy have all tried the faux hawk.

Razor Cut

The razor cut started in Asia but then gained popularity in Europe. The haircut works with both long and short hair. It consists of layers that can create volume in hair. Razor cuts are better worn with straight hair since razor cutting curly hair will only make it seem too bulky. The razor cut also tones down sharp features such as the nose and the chin. Celebrities Ryan Gosling and Orlando Bloom have worn the razor cut.

Shaggy Style

The shaggy-style haircut, or the shag, originated during the early 1970. The ideal purpose of the shaggy style is to make hair appear messy. Short and medium hair lengths are more appropriate for the shaggy cut. Just like the razor cut, it has layers, but this time it can be used for curly hair. Celebrities caught with the shaggy cut include Ashton Kutcher, Christian Bale, Josh Groban and Adrien Brody.
