Contemporary American men enjoy a wider than ever range of hairstyles to enhance a mature man's appearance.

Men with squared faces or strong jaws look good in medium or long cuts and in short cuts with some curve to the hair, such as with a side part.

Short men or mature men with small, boyish faces wear grey hair cut short on the sides and long on top well.
