Men with medium-length hair can create a timeless, polished look with a classic comb-over. To achieve this style, apply pomade or styling gel through damp locks before combing over to one side for an effortlessly stylish finish.
A faded haircut creates an eye-catching contrast with its sharp side-part or quiff, making an impressionful fashion statement. Please work with your barber to ensure they cut in such a manner that there is an invisible line separating your top from the side layers.
A taper fade is one of the more subtle types of men’s haircuts, gradually shortening hair on the sides and back while leaving the top complete and un-styled. This haircut allows you to play with proportions while adding some texture. Style it however you wish and use gel or wax for hold. This style has various variations, such as the Caesar fade, or mid-taper fade with a quiff for a more refined and modern appearance.
Spiky hairstyles provide an alternative to pompadours for guys with medium-length hair. This look works particularly well when combined with a skin fade haircut, and can either appear sleek or messy depending on the occasion and venue. Spiked styles are easy to achieve and maintain; any length can reach them, provided there is enough volume in their locks for their shape to hold their form.
Layers work wonders on straight hair, creating the appearance of fullness and volume. Thicker locks benefit significantly from layers, naturally creating the illusion of thicker locks. Coatings may be round or wispy in shape and combined with tapering or spiky styles for maximum impact. Pair a low fade with disconnected length on top for an ultramodern style to create an eye-catching silhouette. Mid-length layered cuts are timeless classics, perfect for bold men who enjoy showing their edge; this style works exceptionally well on men who naturally have curly or wavy locks.
While the bowl cut may be associated with young boys, it’s an elegant haircut suitable for any man of any age that’s easy to maintain and style. Add an undercut for added modernity while appearing slimmer! If your hair is wavy, consider giving your medium haircut an air of pompadour or quiff for an eye-catching modern look. Alternately, opt for a textured crop haircut or the 90s style “hair curtains.” If you have a round face shape, extend your look by creating a side part and slicked back style with a side part and side parting, or try a bowl cut with mid fade to add contrast and look more stylish – look to Wiz Khalifa, Jaden Smith or J Cole as a source of inspiration!
