List of Hairstyles For Men
Let’s take a look at some of these Cool hairstyles;
1. The fade;
The fade which refers to the way you cut the sides and back of your hair and goes along with the undercut has become extremely popular with the emergence of the ‘ short sides, long top’ modern men’s hair craze. A fade is characterised by gradual shortening in hair length with longest hair at the top and shortest hair at the bottom.
How to style the fade; the fade is exclusively cut using clippers in a variety of styles ranging from high, mid, low and skin/bald fades. The decision to get either low or mid or high fade is a personal choice and depends on where you want the cut to start.

2. The undercut;
Instead of the gradually fading from top to bottom, the key feature of the undercut is the sharp distinction between the skin/bald sides and the voluminous top.
How to style; the undercut has so many variations each one requiring a different approach but generally it characterises buzzed sides and at least two inches of hair on the top even for variations like the disconnected and slicked back undercut, undercut with wavy fohawk, disconnected undercut with hard part comb over.
For the hair on top, you will need to apply pomade, Wax or putty and distribute evenly before styling based on your choice, brushing all your hair back with a comb to get the slicked back, brushing up and back simultaneously for pompadour, pulling the hair forward for the Fringe, combing to the side for comb over or side sweep etc.
