    London Street Hairstyles for Men

    The British street man when searching for a haircut looks for a stylish, edgy look that's classy yet cheeky with enough spice to add intrigue. These styles range from militaristic looks to long curly locks reminiscent of '80s rock 'n' roll. So bring out the fringe, spikes, bowl cuts and faux hawks if you're in the market for a London street hairstyle.

    The shaved look uses an electric razor or razor blade to cut hair short to the scalp. Otherwise known as the military cut, this not only makes the early morning rush a breeze, but adds a chic, no nonsense look for the more serious of men.

    Crew Cut

    This look is still super short but leaves about a quarter of an inch of hair. Sometimes this cut is longer in the back and looks sleeker with gel for a just-showered look all day long.

    As the name implies, this style cuts the top of hair into a flat look. This looks best with medium length hair, nothing too long, otherwise this style can overwhelm your features. Sides and the back are usually short or shaved. Gelling the top gives an indie-rock or punk-rock look and looks best with straight or wavy hair.

    Ah, the famous mullet. While still characteristically '70s and '80s, this look adds a punk rock street style when moused or gelled for those walking through London's streets. This look is shorter in front and on the sides and longer hair in front, usually extending past the neck. Longer hair looks sophisticated with a fringe and feathered ends, especially when combined with layers on top and on the sides. This style looks best with straight and wavy hair.

    Bowl Cut

    While once used with an actual bowl, this style has come a long way. Scissors have replaced the beloved bowl, but the style is still the same. This look is short on the sides and in the back while uniformly the same length on top. This is a dramatic look and looks best with straight hair.

    Rock Star

    The rock star look is best on medium or long hair. Think '80s rock with less frizz and crazy curls. Today's rock star look plays with tousled layers, fringe, spikes, textured locks and smooth curls and waves.

    Faux Hawk

    The faux hawk is a very popular style that combines indie rock with an emo style for a tough-guy look. To perfect this style, hair should be medium length on top so it can be swept into a centre spike using wax or gel. Hair should be shorter in the back and on the sides.

    This style has a shorter back with side burns and a longer top. This is the most versatile style, as it can be gelled down, spiked, swept to the side, tousled for a bed head look or worn flat. The hair is tapered and cut near the ears. It can also be layered with a fringe and looks best with straight or wavy hair.
