Men’s undercut hairstyles. Undercut hairstyles are the total in thing these days! Well, the truth has been spoken. Men who go for undercut styles are absolutely on the right track. The best thing about undercut hairstyles is that you can pull off any number of looks with one basic idea, and it’s hassle-free.

Contrary to old beliefs, even men can rock out their looks and alter their style. They can keep themselves up to date with whatever style is prevailing in town.
What is an undercut hairstyle for men?
It is a hairstyle that leaves length on top, but the back and sides are buzzed or cut. An undercut hairstyle accentuates hair volume and your facial structure.
It doesn’t matter what hair type you have – straight, wavy, and permed. There’s a perfect undercut style just for you. If you are trying a new hairstyle this year, you might want to consider undercut that gives a classy and refined look.
What’s special about the undercut hairstyle?
It’s so distinct that you can recognize it at first glance. It comes in different styles, and each of them is unique as the haircut itself.
- Maintenance. If you plan on keeping the undercut for a long period of time, you will be needing some products and tools. And note that as your hair grows, the undercut will look a bit different. You can either keep it or you visit the barber to have it trimmed to your desired length.
- Styling. Nothing that’s worth having comes easy. Invest in good quality products and tools. Look for the best pomade, wax, brush, comb, and hair dryer. They are essential for your undercut hairstyle, especially if you’re aiming for texture, volume, and height.
- Ask For Opinions. Apart from yourself, you can consult your friends (and crush) to ask them what undercut variant looks best in you. In any event, the barber is the most reliable person for that matter.
- For Men With Oval Faces. While any man has the right to aport any hairdo they want, undecut just doesn’t work for oblong face shape.
- Bad Hairstyle. If you feel that a certain hairstyle isn’t for you, you gotta trust your instincts and opt for something else. You don’t wanna be a laughingstock for sporting a bad hairdo.

Hard parts can be undercut style. There is an emphasis to the part here. Meanwhile, the sides are tapered for more “push” toward the top.
37 – Spiky Hair
To get it right, tell the stylist to brush up most of your hair.
36 – The Boy Next Door

It’s a proof of how versatile the undercut can be. This style gives you the leeway of having a cut with low-maintenance.
31 – Disconnected Undercut
It’s a dramatic variation of the classic undercut. The hair on your top is “disconnected” from the sides with a nice and hard part. This strikes a thin line between short and long hair. The catch is that the hair can be cut at medium length, and styled to look like pompadour. For best results, use products with strong hold especially if you have a thicker hair.
