The 10 Best Haircuts For Men With Straight Hair
How many men walk into a barbershop, ask for a certain number, and walk out dissatisfied with their cut? Far too many, in our opinion.
There are many excellent haircut styles out there, especially for men with naturally straight hair (or who like to straighten on their own). If you’ve always been unhappy with your hair, it’s possible you just need a new style.
Fortunately, there are plenty to choose from, so experiment with different styles to see what works best for you.
How to Style Straight Hair for Men
Shampooing and conditioning your hair isn’t enough to attract a mate. You need a high-quality style that shows you’re willing to go the extra mile for your look.
While a barber can certainly help you achieve the ideal look, many styles you can accomplish in the comfort of your home. Here are some to pay mind to the next time you’re looking to change up your aesthetic.
A fringe haircut is popular with men with all hairstyles, but it works particularly well for straight hair. To really add some pizzazz to your look, consider opting for textured fringe with varying styles sprinkled throughout.
To pump up the volume, consider adding a sea salt spray to emphasize those varying textures.
A short quiff offers a dramatic look for men who like to keep things short up top. It’s particularly flattering on men with straight and fine hair, and it requires little maintenance.
To get this look, wash your hair thoroughly, making sure you’re clear of dandruff. Then, blow dry your locks while pushing the front of your hair up.
8. Middle Part
A middle part can be dynamic on men with short or long hair. It basically involves dividing the top of your head into halves so that your hair flows smoothly on either side.
7. Slick Back
Do you want to look like the characters on “Peaky Blinders?” Then opt for the slick back look. When your hair is wet, comb it so that it’s going backwards from the front of your face.
You’ll probably need some product to keep your hair in place for the rest of the day. A good pomade will do the trick.
The pompadour is similar to a slick back, but it mainly focuses on the hair at the front of the hairline. It should be tallest and most voluminous at the front, gradually receding in size as it moves toward the back.
5. Side Part
This is similar to the middle part, except you’re dividing your hair on either the left or right side. The sides should ideally taper fade for some added dynamics.
4. Man Bun
For men with a little too much up top, opt for a man bun. It consists of taking your long locks and bundling them up in a cute bun you keep on top of or behind your head.
This is one of the trendiest men’s haircuts at the moment. It involves a shortened look on the sides while keeping the hair on the top of your head relatively long.
With this haircut, you’ll want to visit your barber for touch-ups once every one to two weeks. You don’t want the hair on the sides of your head getting too long for this look.
2. Side Fringe
A side fringe entails a side part that only covers half of the forehead. It’s typically longer than a full fringe but remains universally flattering.
1. Taper Fade
This subtle fade starts at your ears and follows your hairline back to the nape of your neck. It provides a high-contrast effect to make your hair look more structured.
It’s also a good way to ensure you don’t have any messy or flyaway hairs around your neck or ears. It’s recommended for men with strong cheekbones.
