50 Best Short Hairstyles for Men
41. Zayn Malik Short Hairstyle: Undercut and volume on top
One Direction singer Zayn Malik sports a trendy undercut hairstyle with extra volume and texture on top. He’s updated his look with a full beard, erasing his boyish image and replacing it with a mature and masculine facial hair style. The key to this hairstyle is the contrast in textures – keep your undercut short with sharp, well-defined borders, and the hair on top thick, messy, and full of texture. Style your hair by working some pomade into hair at the crown and creating soft spikes with your fingers.
42. Matt Bomer Short Hairstyle: Tousled and preppy
White Collar actor Matt Bomer sports a tousled, preppy hairstyle with a mid length fringe. This short hairstyle is casual and sexy, and we love the “just-rolled-out-of-bed” look on Bomer. Recreate this style by asking your barber to trim the sides whilst leaving the back and top slightly longer. This hairstyle works best with thick, wavy hair, although you can recreate the look with fine hair by using lots of volume boosting hair styling products.
43. Joe Manganiello Short Hairstyle: Short Ivy League hairstyle
American actor Joe Manganiello mixed up his look by chopping off his long, curly locks in favor of a chic Ivy League hairstyle. This short hairstyle is simple, classic, and very stylish, making it a great go-to men’s hairstyle for work or play. It requires very little styling – simply work a tiny bit of pomade into the short fringe, and you’re done! The Ivy League is a perfect no-fuss hairstyle that’s flattering and very easy to maintain. Get your hair trimmed regularly (every two weeks) to keep it looking neat and tidy, and make sure that you pair your chic hairstyle with well-groomed facial hair for a striking final look.
44. Ryan Reynolds Short Hairstyle: Thick and tousled
Canadian film and television actor Ryan Reynolds looks professional and confident with his thick, tousled hairstyle. He sports longish hair on top, with strategic pieces of hair covering the tops of his ears for a more rugged, “undone” look. This short hairstyle is prefect for thick hair, as it gives your locks some shape and definition. Keep your hair looking thick and healthy by eating well and sticking to a good hair care routine. Choose the correct shampoo for your hair type (e.g., oily, dry, etc) and never skip the conditioner!
45. Leonardo DiCaprio Short Hairstyle: Swept back with fringe
The Great Gatsby actor Leonardo DiCaprio wears his short hair swept back with a voluminous fringe. This hairstyle is great if you have a heart-shaped face like Leo’s, as it adds height, creating the illusion of a longer and narrower face. Leo also has quite fine hair, so he styles it with a light product that doesn’t weigh it down. Look out for hair gel without silicone – this ingredient can make hair look limp and greasy, so try to avoid it.
46. Gerard Butler Short Hairstyle: Sexy caesar
Scottish actor Gerard Butler increases his sex appeal by adding a stylish caesar haircut to his weaponry. The caesar is a simple, no-fuss style that requires very little maintenance. Stick to a simple care routine – wash, condition, and brush to style. Perfect for the modern man who can’t be bothered to spend time styling his hair every morning! Pair your caesar cut with a slightly scruffy beard for a rugged look, or keep your face clean-shaven if you prefer the preppy look. Don’t forget to exfoliate your face once a week to keep dry skin and ingrown beard hairs at bay.
47. Chris Hemsworth Short Hairstyle: Super-short crew cut
Thor actor Chris Hemsworth sports a super-short crew cut and designer stubble that pulls his look together. This short hairstyle isn’t for everyone, as it can accentuate “flaws” such as a receding hairline or a high forehead, but it works very well for oval face shapes and thick hair. As your hair grows out, it’s very important to have it styled and trimmed regularly to keep it looking good. It’s easy to neglect your hair when you’re used to just leaving it and letting it grow, but it’s best to take good care of it for great results when it’s a bit longer.
48. Michael Fassbender Short Hairstyle: Mini fauxhawk and 10-day beard
Irish-German actor and producer Michael Fassbender wears his dark auburn hair in a trendy mini-fauxhawk with a slightly scruffy 10-day beard. The fauxhawk hairstyle is as the name suggests – a “faux” version of the edgy mohawk hairstyle. It is styled by combing hair on top of the head up into a peak, whilst keeping the sides short or slicked back. Wear your hair up for an edgy and contemporary look, or comb it flat for a more formal and professional look.
49. Chris Pine Short Hairstyle: Textured crew cut
Star Trek actor Chris Pine keeps his look simple and masculine with a short and textured crew cut. The crew cut features a slightly longer fringe and tapered sides, and plenty of texture. This hairstyle works best with fine hair, as the cut gives thin hair extra volume and definition. Style by brushing hair when damp, and add a bit of pomade if your hair is prone to falling flat. Blow-dry on low heat for around 2 minutes to set your hairstyle, and you’re good to go!
50. John Hamm Short Hairstyle: Retro waves
American actor John Hamm looks dapper and distinguished with his retro waves and clean-shaven face. This short hairstyle is classic and chic, and it’s perfect for formal occasions such as weddings or formal dinners. To style, prep damp hair with a volume boosting hair mousse. Then, blow-dry hair gently, taking care not to make it frizzy or too wild. Comb some pomade into your hair and create a side-parting with a side-swept fringe. Blow-dry again on low heat to set, and finish off with a puff of hairspray. Shave carefully with a new set of blades for a flawless finish, and you’re good to go!
