Sometimes, the best haircut is to just get rid of it altogether. This model's coarse hair is difficult to style and shape. The burr haircut really shows off his outstanding features and changes the focus from his hair to his face.

Short Layer to Butch

This model's hair has such great texture, it seems a shame to buzz it off. The two styles show just how much difference a haircut make -- both frame his face quite well. The short layer gives him a trendy, contemporary look, while the butch and facial scruff would be well suited to an active lifestyle requiring a low-maintenance style.

High School Musical star Zac Efron's signatue shag haircut works well with his facial features. A razor is used to give this style a shattered, shaggy look. A small amount of styling cream controls fly-aways and adds separation.
