The first of the top 60 men’s hairstyles is the classic taper. This is a low maintenance haircut with a high degree of style. While the sides and back of the head are shaved short, the top of the head still has a little hair for styling. It’s a timeless cut that’s as good as ever.
This cut is best for boys who don’t want to fuss too much with their hair. The short hair at the top can be spiked for texture or combed forward with gel or mousse. This haircut works best with oval faces, short foreheads, and strong cheek bones.
How to get it: Tell the hairstylist how much hair you’d like to have on top, and tell him you want it tapered. Often, the stylist will ask how steep you want your taper to be. Some tapers are gradual and fade out over a long area, but others end quickly. Either can look great with a variety of face shapes and hair types.
If you’re tired of the work that comes with long hair, consider the long buzzcut. Short hair is all around the head, but it’s still enough to be called hair. This is a great option for boys who are involved in sports or other high-energy activities, since it won’t require too much hassle.
Naturally, the long buzzcut is another style that caters to pursuers of low maintenance. A small amount of gel or mousse can be used, but this haircut is most often kept natural. It works best with oval faces, short foreheads, and strong jawlines.
How to get it: Tell your hairstylist you want your hair buzzed with a #4 clipper. This is a medium-sized blade that won’t trim the hair too short. If you decide to stick with the buzzcut, you can always go a size up or down. You’ll want to visit your hairstylist once or twice a month to keep your hair short.
The undercut has made a huge mark in fashion this year. The hair is cut short around the sides and back of the head while the top remains long. The most popular way to style this haircut is by running the hair slick back, but there are several other ways to style it as well.
While most pictures depict it with straight hair, it also works great for curly hair. This style requires a lot of styling with gel or mousse and needs to be maintained by shaving daily. It works best with strong jawlines and long faces. This is ideal for older teen boys who want to maintain a classy appearance.
How to get it: Tell your stylist you want an undercut. Most barbers and stylists are familiar with the style. If they’re not, say that you want length on the top and the sides buzzed with a mild clipper (such as a #5 or #6). You’ll also want your bangs to be about eyebrow length so you can slick that hair back.
Justin Bieber may have popularized it, but the straight shag hairstyle has grown into one of the most trendy haircuts for boys. Depending on what kind of hair you have, it can be pretty low maintenance, requiring only a brush and maybe some mousse.
If you don’t have naturally straight hair, you may have to use a flat iron to gain that pin-straight look. Usually, this style works best for boys with naturally straight hair, long faces, round cheeks, and high foreheads.
How to get it: If your stylist is familiar with the shag cut, tell him you simply want a straight shag. For those stylists who aren’t in the know, you can tell them that you want layered hair. Make sure to mention that you want the layers cut shortest at the crown of your head. The layers should then increase in length as the stylist moves away from the crown.
Tip: If you want a messy look, tell your stylist to razor cut the ends of your hair.

How to get it: This is similar to the straight shag. Both are based on layers, but the wavy shag consists of long layers all around the head. The hair is usually cut with a razor instead of scissors or a clipper.
One boy’s haircut that is always popular is the butch cut. This haircut, also called a burr, is an extremely short buzzcut. This is a style that’s popular among men in the military. It’s low maintenance, and because of its short length, sweat will not make the hair look bad. This sort of haircut also does not need to be styled.
