Undercut Hairstyles for Men

Undercut hairstyles aren't just for runway models and punk rock stars, but also for ordinary folk like you and me. Celebrities, especially women, have caught on with this rising, uber-sultry trend, experimenting with it in all kinds of ways.
The undercut hairstyle adds definition to one's hair, with the sides trimmed using clippers, and the center left with slightly long hair. It works best for men with a suave sense of style.
'90s Revival
When we think
of the undercut hairstyle,
steamy images of David
Beckham come to mind. He's perfected the risqué haircut with élan, channeling a sexy, bad-boy appeal that only a few men can pull off.
An undercut
hairstyle suits men
with angular faces,
since a chiseled facade
beautifully complements such
a haircut. The upkeep of this
haircut requires a dedicated
hair care routine - frequent
trips to the salon and using the right
hair products is an absolute necessity.

Those of you
who have hair that
grows quickly will need to
have the undercut trimmed every couple of weeks to help maintain its unique shape.
Following are images of undercut haircuts for men, suit those with most types of hair; preferably hair that is wavy, medium-curly, or straight.
Undercut Hairstyles for Men
The undercut hairstyle is a melange of punk and extremely-masculine elements, that come together in a fashionable explosion of sorts. We can guarantee that with this hairstyle, you'll be drawing invidious, yet appreciative stares from passersby.
The best part about this hairstyle is that you can grow hair to a length that you see fit. There are no rules when it comes to the length, although it is advisable that it not cross ear level. It just keeps things polished and neat.
Long but
Sleek
The whole idea of having an undercut hairstyle is to make a prominent statement of the partially-shaved look, sans the extra-long hair. If you want to combine the undercut with longer hair, we suggest styling it appropriately with a neat ponytail or braid.
A full-fledged Mohawk loses its charm when worn by someone who doesn't fit the bill. Channel that grunge yet prim vibe, by going with a tasteful mini Mohawk cut instead.
Mini Mohawk
Hair is visibly shorter around the base of the skull, where you can leave a strip of half-inch-long hair trailing the back of your Mohawk, that ends just above the nape of the neck.
It has a more laid-back look, where hair is minimally styled using hair gel. Scrunch the hair gently by grabbing the front in a fist-like grip; release your hold and leave it to set. Use a gel that doesn't leave hair droopy, but slightly stiff.
Messy Spikes
This is probably the best style because it can make ordinary men look like runway models. The best way to get this look is to highlight hair with two hues ―like dark brown and a dash of blond. It sets off the undercut, giving a fantastic look.
Slicked Across
The hairstyle is
breathtaking―even
more if left on its own―since
the color contrast gives added depth. If you have dirty blond hair or roots with a contrasting tone (like blond hair with black roots)―don't ruin its natural appeal with highlights.
You can achieve this result by simply spritzing a little hairspray on, to create a bouffant-like bulge.You can achieve this result by simply spritzing a little hairspray on, to create a bouffant-like bulge.
Gravity Defying
Ask your hairdresser to shave the hair close to the roots that surround the center, to give a natural voluminous bounce. It looks great on medium-length hair; voluminous long hair can border on extreme punk―unless that's what you're aiming for.
Undercut hairstyle sounds like something you'd definitely want. It's the versatility and edginess that makes it favorite for men. Whether young or old, you'll love how well this '90s-inspired hairstyle blends with your style.
