10 Most Attractive Men’s Hairstyles

The undercut has typically been a staple hair trend in men’s runway and editorial looks. Not only strictly popularised in fashion, but this haircut is also common amongst many film and television stars. It has also celebrated a long-lasting popularity in street style, particularly with the younger generations eager to embrace the trend. There are several reasons for this. Firstly, it’s youthful and can work incredibly well for curly, straight or wavy hair types. The other great thing about the undercut is that it can be interpreted in many ways. From the classic versions to the more modern adaptations and everything in between, consider this your ultimate guide for the top undercut hairstyles you should try today.

 

 

10 Most Attractive Men’s Hairstyles

 

#1 Bald Head – The Bald Look

10 Most Attractive Men's Hairstyles

 

Description

It’s the least deceptive hairstyle of all – with nothing to hide or manipulate. You see either no hair at all or just a little along the sides. It looks clean 100% of the time. All you need is a good moisturizing conditioner in the shower to keep the scalp healthy.

Why it’s popular

It’s a simple style that needs zero time for fixing up. You don’t worry about using the right gel, cream or wax. And let’s not forget our fellow gentlemen with the balding gene who struggle with bald spots. Kudos to those who take that big step and own up to their new ‘do! Going bald can be liberating.

Why it’s attractive

We see women swoon over Hollywood’s alpha male action stars who rock the bald look. Those men make it so cool and macho. It brings out a heightened confidence – as if you’ve made it a part of yourself instead of a “missing” part. There’s an attractive boldness to baldness.

 

 

#2 Fade – The Low/Regular Fade Cut

10 Most Attractive Men's Hairstyles

 

Description

This is a popular black guy’s style in which the hair above the forehead is balanced and well-shaped. You don’t face the issues of hair looking thin or too shaved. Gel or pomade helps give the hair on top more shine and definition.

Why it’s popular

Black men or other guys with tight curls can use it as a very short Afro. The texture remains at the top while both temples (sections near the ears) are tapered halfway. The way the curls are neatly packed makes it an alternative to the crew cut. If it’s not short-and-spiky it might as well be short-and-curly.

Why it’s attractive

Men with fades pay homage to funky styles of Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie in their younger years (except the hair is shorter). We have singers like Usher and Drake who’ve tried it. A number of NBA stars have it. And apparently women like those tiny curls

 

 

#3 Long Round Layered – The Hockey Cut

10 Most Attractive Men's Hairstyles

 

Description

Curly and wavy-haired men are blessed with this option. The style was inspired by hockey players who’d wear their helmets and have long locks of hair flowing out. This mini lion’s mane takes some time to grow. But once in full shape you just have to condition it regularly.

Why it’s popular

Hockey cuts are pretty low-maintenance. They’re great for men who don’t have the time to fix up their hair every day. They also fit guys who surf or like hanging out at the beach. And then there’s the popular McDreamy doctor from Grey’s Anatomy.

Why it’s attractive

Women love the hockey cut in different ways. If you’re built, they see you as strong like Tarzan. They might sense a laid-back vibe and feel like they can be themselves around you. Others may think you’re like a Disney Prince (if you’ve got the right outfit)!

 

#4 Tousled (Messy-looking Hair) – The Bad Boy Cut

10 Most Attractive Men's Hairstyles

 

Description

There’s a place in men’s style for hair that looks like you just got out of bed! Your hair should first be mid-length with the sides partly trimmed. The trick is using gel or pomade to run down the hair and “mess it up” to an extent. You get to play around and try different looks.

Why it’s popular

The tousled style proves how times have changed. Women used to think of bad boys as like the characters in Grease (who all had nice hair). Now there’s a shift towards something more rebellious. They adore Robert Pattinson’s signature look from the Twilight films.

Why it’s attractive

It’s a raw and youthful style. It’s part of today’s bad boy image that many women get excited about. Or others might think of an artist who could stay in bed all day and talk to them about life. Either way there’s a mystery to it.

 

#5 Side Part – The Professional Cut

10 Most Attractive Men's Hairstyles

 

Description

The side part is a type of combover that’s split somewhere in the left/right sections of your scalp. There are men who use it to hide bald spots. But you can have thick straight hair and look just as good in it. Hair on either side is swept according to its natural direction. A good gel or pomade should keep everything neat and slick.

Why it’s popular

This style has always been relevant. Male models do fashion shows with a side part because it looks chic. Those working in the industry like how it’s simple to style. Then we have the Mad Men characters sporting them just as well as their suits. It’s great for busy office guys who don’t want to waste time and effort on hair.

Why it’s attractive

You’ll never risk the same “trying too hard” impression that other hairstyles have. Instead it’s tidy, professional-looking hair. It’s a more mature style and women like that. We know they love George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio. So this is the closest you’ll get to being like them.

 

#6 Buzz Cut – The Military Cut

10 Most Attractive Men's Hairstyles

 

Description

This style is also known as the butch cut. All hair is trimmed short – between 1/4 and 3/4 inches – around the head. Clippers are used to taper the back and sides for a slight fade. Buzz cuts are easy to maintain with the use of hair control wax (butch wax).

Why it’s popular

For the average black man there two ways to go with his natural tight-curled hair. He either grows it or buzzes it off. Buzz cuts are more common now as men like the advantages. It’s even all throughout and bald spots won’t be an issue. Plus anyone can try it – you don’t have to be black or balding.

Why it’s attractive

The buzz cut denotes discipline and manliness. Most men in the military sport it well – it matches their uniforms. And women respond to that tough, authoritative image. They love a guy who looks like he can be their knight in shining armor.

 

#7 Undercut – The Modern Cut

10 Most Attractive Men's Hairstyles

 

Description

The undercut combines short and long styles that stand out from all angles. The back and sides are shaved while hair at the top is swept right, left or backwards. It’s easy and quick to style with a little pomade or gel.

Why it’s popular

It was first a trend among working class men (who couldn’t afford more skilled barbers) in the early 1900s. But recently the dubstep crowd started to experiment with undercuts. They found the short-long contrast interesting and “edgy.” Celebrities like David Beckham and Macklemore made them more mainstream.

Why it’s attractive

One thing about undercuts is they bring the ears to the foreground while the hair on top stays long. That’s a plus if you got nicely shaped ears. Men’s grooming expert Elle Medico calls the undercut “an attention getter” that’s perfect for outgoing men. And indeed there’s something sexy about hybrid styles (like boxer briefs).

 

#8 Classic Quiff – The Elvis Cut

10 Most Attractive Men's Hairstyles

 

Description

The traditional quiff adds volume to a guy’s hair. The sides are cut shorter while the hair on top is combed forward except the front part. The strands in front are unevenly brushed up. You’ll need some wax or styling cream for this.

Why it’s popular

Nobody sported quiffs better than Elvis and the Rockabilly back in the day. These days other young musicians and actors are paying it tribute. Pinterest sees it trending over the next few years – especially those with a windswept twist at the top.

Why it’s attractive

The classic quiff is manly-stylish when done properly. People see it as the “evolution” of the crew cut. It’s not supposed to be perfect – that’s why women love it. There’s beauty in hair that’s a bit rugged. It shows you’re not that high-maintenance.

 

#9 Classic Pompadour – The Bruno Mars Cut

10 Most Attractive Men's Hairstyles

 

Description

This is a close cousin of the quiff – only it’s neater. The hair is swept back high over your forehead leaving no strand out of place. From the side view it’s shaped like a cone or a shark’s fin. You maintain its direction with a blow dryer and some wax or pomade.

Why it’s popular

Sometimes we see trends cross over gender boundaries. This was the case for pompadours. Women first had them in the 18th century and later on during the ‘40s. Now men in fashion have pompadours because they work with various lengths. And let’s not forget the “Uptown Funk” stars who look great in theirs!

Why it’s attractive

You show massive confidence when you pull off a classic pompadour. It appears high-maintenance but if you’re charming enough, women are really drawn to it. Men with this hair are perceived as wealthy and style-conscious. And ladies like men who have taste

 

#10 Crew Cut – The Classic Cut

10 Most Attractive Men's Hairstyles

 

Description

The crew cut offers a lot of flexibility with the hair tapered to short or medium length. Hair at the top is upright and you can add wax or gel to spike it some more. Other than that there’s no maintenance required until your next trip to the barbershop.

Why it’s popular

The crew cut has advantages you find in longer and shorter styles. Hair at the front isn’t dangling. There’s less to wash and condition. You can brush it forward or sideways to add volume. Also it’s one of the smarter-looking hairstyles today. Sometimes crew cuts are referred to as Ivy League cuts.

Why it’s attractive

The crew cut is a women’s favorite. So is the suit. But a guy with a crew cut and a nice suit – that’s a killer combo. You see it on TV with all those fictional lawyers, spies and con artists alike. Those men aren’t just smart and diligent – they completely look like it. They endorse the beauty of classic short hair.
