We’re all about having a signature scent and signature look, but sometimes things get a little stale. Case in point: When was the last time you changed your hairstyle? We fall into comfort zones, sometimes keeping the same haircut for years because a barber or an ex told us it looked good. And it probably does (we hope), but sometimes it’s nice to break the mold and experiment with something new. Ergo, we bring you the best haircuts for men that will never go out of style.
These days, there are few, if any, standard rules that apply. If you always loved the iconic hairstyles of yesteryear worn by the likes of James Dean, Elvis Presley, and Humphrey Bogart then by all means, turn your barber’s chair into a time machine. A lot of those haircuts for men are timeless.
Classic cuts aren’t playing it safe. The style will look different on every guy, depending on hair texture, density, and length. Plus, if you have a really great barber or stylist, they can modify the style to really suit your personality or to frame your face perfectly. Heck, just look at how many mullet expressions are out there—and the slightest difference in length or contrast can yield some really unique results. Who says the ol’ high and tight can’t have the same range? Trust us, there’s always a way. (Editor’s note: We regret to inform anyone who got excited by the mention of mullets. None of the haircuts below include the style…)
If you take any of the photos below to your barber and say, “Give me the version of this that best suits me,” they should know exactly what to do. These haircuts are among the most requested.
We also tossed in a few grooming tips so you can master styling at home in between cuts.
