5 Best Skater Cuts in 2022
For several decades now, skateboarders and skater cuts have been responsible for starting a lot of the trends – whether hairstyling, clothing, music; a lot of major trends can be traced back to the skateparks. One recent example of this trendsetting phenomena is the gradual switch to long hair on men being socially acceptable and even very cool again. Overall, there’s a lot of variety and different styles within the skater community; and skateboarding itself overlaps with surf, emo, goth, and punk culture so it really becomes a melting pot of new styles being brought forth!
For my part, Skaters have been a large influence to me and the way I see and digest style around me. If you’re the same way, you should benefit from these Skater Cuts. Let’s dive into some classic and some new, trending Skater Cuts that you can rock yourself in 2022!
Curly Hair + Curtain Bangs
This is a classic skater look: The hair is rather disheveled, and naturally falls into bangs on both sides creating a sort of ‘mushroom’ shape that flows freely.
Undercut w/ Medium-Long Length
This has become a popular style in a lot of communities aside from skating in recent years. The undercut looks awesome when combined with medium to long hair on the top; do it up with some pomade and a blow dryer to create lasting volume for the day.
The classic surfer cut goes both ways: You will see many surfers and skaters rocking this cut. Simple, voluminous curly hair at medium length!
This cut can be seen everywhere now a days; notably a prominent part of actor Timothee Chalumete’s every day style. Similar to the first cut shown here, the hair is kept somewhat messy and disheveled with a middle part spreading curtain bangs with plenty of volume.
Long Skater Cut
You may be noticing a trend by now; a lot of skater cuts consist primarily of the person’s natural hair, let to sort of ‘do it’s own thing’. They may add some highlights, some product for volume, and love to let it hang over their face!
Skater cuts can be a gamechanger for the right kind of person; generally easy to achieve and look awesome + trendy, you can’t go wrong! Another positive to this category of hairstyle is that a lot of great looks are achievable with little to no product / maintenance.
