Short Haircuts

A short haircut is almost always a great option for a man. A short cut is masculine, cool in warm weather, and generally easy to maintain.

Just because the hair is short, doesn't mean it has to be boring. This gallery contains several great men's haircuts for guys looking for a short haircut -- from a buzzcut to a short, textured men's hairstyle, you'll find a great haircut that suits you. To make sure you get exactly the cut you're looking for, I recommend printing a photo of the style and taking it with you. Showing a picture is always far easier than describing a haircut. When selecting your style, just make sure to be realistic and choose a style that will work with your hair type and facial features.

This style is a good option for a man with natural texture. The hair is cut close at the sides and back and left about two inches long on top. To style, when hair is slightly damp, apply a small amount of styling paste (one with a matte finish) and work it around in the palms of your hand. Distribute evenly through the hair and use fingertips to add a bit of texture. Just don't work too hard at it - this is a very casual style.

A Classic Butch Haircut

The Ultimate Wash and Go Style © Yuri_Arcurs | Dreamstime.com.

In this style, the hair is cut uniformly all over the head with clippers (in this style, a #2 blade is used). Performed correctly, the hair should be tapered shorter at the sides and back, with no visible line at the nape. Styling product is not required, but I suggest a good leave in conditioner with a sunscreen to protect the scalp and smooth the hair.

A Textured Ivy League Haircut

A Good Option for a Low Care Style Chuck26287 | Dreamstime.com.

With this style, the hair is cut to conform to the shape of the head, with a little extra length in the front. This style works well with most hair types, but is especially well suited for those with fine or thinning hair. To style, work a small amount of styling paste in the palms of the hand and apply to hair. Using the palm of the hand, work the hair in a side to side motion across the top of the head and use the fingers to give a bit of lift in the front.

A Classic Taper with a Texturized Top

Versatility is Key with This Cut © iStockphoto.com | jacomstephens.

This is a traditional style with a modern twist. The sides and back are cut clipper short with a tapered neckline. The top may be either combed neatly with a part for the office, or spiked up on top for the weekend. This is a good style for the man who wants shorter hair with options. As pictured, a bit of pomade is worked between the palms and applied to the hair. The hair is then directed back with the fingers with sections at the round of the head pushed slightly forward. Fingers can be used to twist sections for added texture.

The Ivy League Style

For this style, the hair is cut aggressively short on the sides and back with a clean taper at the neckline. The hair is cut finger-length on top. To style, use a pea-sized amount of pomade. Work the product between the palms of the hand and smooth the hair forward on top. With this style, the emphasis is on neatness and the cut should be trimmed every three weeks.

The Classic Ivy League

The Ultimate in Clean Cut Style © Spanishalex | Dreamstime.com.

With this style, the hair is cropped short to conform to the shape of the head. Clippers are used to cut the hair short and high past the crown. The top is cut clipper short at the crown and is allowed to get gradually longer towards the front. A light application of pomade provides shine and gives the look a finished appearance.

A Short Ivy League Cut

Named for the styles which were once popular at Ivy League Universities, this style is taken aggressively close with clippers high up the sides and back of the head. The neckline is usually tapered clean with no line at the nape. The hair in this photo is cut finger length on top with a bit more length at the front. While the style looks good towel dried with no product, a bit of pomade or cream can be added to give a slightly more groomed appearance.

The Burr Haircut

For a burr, the hair is clipped aggressively short all over the head. In this photo, a #1.5 blade is used. The neckline is tapered and a clean arch is cut over the ears. No styling is required, but due to the very short nature of the cut, a bit of sunscreen should be applied to the scalp when prolonged exposure to the sun is desired.
