Top 10 Most Popular Haircuts for Men, And How To Get Them (2021 Edition)

In this article, we’ve compiled the hottest men’s hairstyles in 2021, so if you’ve been wondering what new cut to get – look no further. This year has not been an overly inventive year for new hairstyles, as many of the most popular haircuts remain short fades, undercuts on the side with medium to long hair on top. As always, your hair type and length will be the most important factor in deciding which style is right for you. Let’s get into these trendy hairstyles.

The Classic Crew Cut


The crew cut hairstyle has been and will continue to be one of the most popular mens hairstyles as it looks sleek, professional, and can accentuate facial features. To shake things up, try fading the sides or go for a bit of length to have that Ivy league look. Tell your barber that you want a Crew Cut with added spice, maybe give them some creative freedom with this look if you want something a little more original.

The Hard Part



The Hard part is a type of shave that goes down to the scalp and lies on either side of the main hair part. It creates a defined and sleek look that gives tidy but also sharp and well maintained. This cut is done with a trimmer or razor and definitely requires some upkeep. Use a quality pomade to keep the hair on either side of the part high with volume and texture, this will add to the dimension of the cut. A Hard part is shaved into the head rather than naturally occurring or trained so ask your barber for a Hard part with a full shave on the side.

The Pompadour


The Pompadour hairstyle has transformed through the years and may be recognizable as it was rocked by Elvis Presley throughout his stardom. This style was originally created for women but has since picked up popularity with men as it is suitable for most hair types and face shapes. The Pomp includes short back and sides with long hair on top. Typically the hair on top is styled to have a lot of volume and texture. This style is rocked with short or long sides, depending on personal preference. Use a high quality pomade before blowing your hair up and back with a round brush. Since this look can be worn in many different ways, show your barber a photo of the look you like and have him go from there.

The Bro Flow


This cut is incredibly easy to maintain as it is just medium to long length hair pushed back. Work in a little product when styling and you have a laid back and flowy hairstyle. For straight hair, ask your barber for a little bit of texture within the cut. This will keep the style from looking like it was greased back. For wavy or curly hair, use high quality hair cream to add some texture by pushing the hair back and curling up some of the ends. A few strands of purposely misplaced hair in the front accentuates the already easy-going nature of this cut. Regular trims are recommended to keep the hair looking healthy and to ensure the proper shape for the bro flow.

The French Crop


This hairstyle originated in Europe but has since gained attention as it is incredibly versatile. The French Crop features a long top with a blunt fringe and short backs and sides. This haircut can be worn many ways thanks to the fringe! Style the hair a little shaggier or slicked back depending on your style. For a shaggier look use a high quality pomade and texture spray. Use hair balm for a slicked and sleek look. Your barber can help you decide what look to go for with the French Crop depending on your hair’s natural qualities. A photo of the style you like is always a good place to start.

The Buzzcut


You may be wondering how the buzzcut has made it to 2021 as one of the most popular hairstyles worn not just by men. This haircut can be modified in so many ways that it no longer looks like the traditional military style cut we all once knew. Instead it is being rocked with a fade, a bleached or colored head, and even a full beard. If you find yourself wanting to experiment with more drastic and clean lines, a buzz cut may be the right one for you since it didn’t take much time to grow out or to style. This classic look is becoming more and more popular as people become more experimental with their hair in 2021.

The Disconnected Undercut


As you may have noticed from its name, the disconnected undercut is actually the pairing of two barber elements: the disconnect & the undercut. The result of this is a trim that tends to be made up of a grade 1-3 throughout the back and sides with the top left to be styled. It can resemble a french crop or a short pompadour. The sky’s the limit with how this cut can be worn which makes it great for people of all ages, hair types, and face shapes.

The High Fade


The High Fade typically starts at the temples or above. Depending on how you’d like yours to be styled you can ask your barber for a bald fade starting below the temples or for a more gradual fade starting from the temples or above. This look requires frequent cuts to preserve the clean lines but doesn’t require much effort outside of regular trims. Whether you want to rock short curly hair on top or long and straight, use a high quality pomade to keep the hair in place.

The Messy Waves Cut


The Messy Waves cut is a perfect hairstyle for anyone who can roll out of bed and have a great hair day as it requires little styling with semi regular trims. People with straight hair may also rock this cut with a little bit of heat and product. To perfect this cut to your liking consider a fade an inch or two above the ears.

The Fringe Cut


And last but certainly not least, Fringe has come back into style in 2021. Fringe is essentially a longer hairstyle with choppy or different lengthed pieces of hair. Whether you want to go for an angular cut in front or for curtain bangs, this style is exceptionally groovy and timeless. You can wear this cut with shorter sides or long all around. To decipher how to perfect this look for you, consider with your barber factors such as hair length, style, and texture. A high quality pomade or hair cream can aid in the process of styling especially when it comes to the volume in the front.


Whether you’re seeking a new hairstyle entirely or are just looking to switch up the one you already have, consider this list as a guide to finding the perfect haircut for you. As hairstyles come in and out of style it’s always fun to play around with the classics and to add your personal spice.
