The biggest hairstyle of all times – the undercut – makes all men look hot as hell.

The UNDERCUT seems to be the one haircut and men hairstyle that’s been going on for quite sometime, reminiscent of those 1940’s dapper looks.

What is the UNDERCUT?

“I’d like to shave my head, but still have long hair please.”

No problem. In a nutshell it’s : shaved on the sides and long in the front hairstyle.

Say what you will about it, truth is, it’s got so many options, from super edgy to toned down, from extravagant to office appropriate, it’s so versatile and flattering on most face shapes – that it’s no wonder boys are getting it like crazy.

Boys, if you rock the undercut, or you did in the past, kudos! If not, what the hell are you waiting for? Maybe you feel it’s ubiquitous hence boring? No such thing. Trust us.

How To Do The Undercut?

If you’re blessed with a good head of hair, I’d be a pity not to shave off your sides and leave your upper part longer.

  • dapper style: sleek it back like those 1940’s mobsters.
  • rockenroll child: the sky’s the limit super shaved on sides & sleeked back, or even disheveled, or side parted.
  • smart casual kinda guy, keep it simple: do the toned down version of it.
  • Sporty boy: take your pick.

The point is, the undercut will look fantastic and blend in with your style regardless of it.

You can go extreme on it, or keep it rather classic. You can wear your front hair as long as you want, sleeked back or not, side parted, shaved sides as deep as you feel like it, or go gradual.

Don’t be afraid to have fun & experiment, it’s only hair. It’ll grow back.

If you’ve got a receding hairline, do not despair. Think David Beckham or Jude Law. Both have had this undercut and pulled it off brilliantly. So where there’s a will, there’s a way.

I agree the undercut is perhaps overly present and every men and boy out there are getting it, from those famous faces to your best friend or neighbor. But sometimes, just sometimes, when such a cool trend comes along, you just have to say fuck it and jump on board.

Scared you’ll look like the rest, are you? Well that’s why the undercut comes with infinite style possibilities.

    As someone with one of these haircuts, its great. A little upkeep on the long stuff up on top never hurt anyone, and the sides on a 1 take care of themselves. I just toss it over with the grain in the morning and WELLAH, it looks great (somewhat like the top picture, but flowing more to the side)! Also, I have a hard part on the right side of my head, and my hair naturally flows left. I suggest a hard part if you’re willing to spend a few bucks every 4 or 5 days to keep it looking sharp. It can get expensive, but then you let it grow back out. Simple as that. I never had a girlfriend because I always got a buzzcut on a 1, which didn’t flatter my face. Once I grew it out and went to a stylist, my life really turned around and I feel better about myself, all because of a haircut. Trust me guys, it does wonders.

    Just because something is trendy doesn’t mean it will look good on you. If you’re not a model, chances are this haircut will just look like a giant hair turd that’s been plopped atop a shaved head. If anything this latest trend (which is just another repeat like everything else) makes it easy to see just how many men there are out there that are scared of not conforming to ‘cool’. And posts like this one only perpetuate the stupidity.

    I reside in New England. It is mid April 2015 and have been wearing an undercut for nearly three years. Although, there are plenty of guys out there that still sport an undercut, I sense dramatic change on the horizon. I see more and more guys are growing out their sides and losing the contrasting length on the tops of their heads that give the undercut its signature appeal. It seems that undercuts are truly fading and even I, myself, am currently letting the sides fill in – On my next trip to the barber, I will ask him to simply temp the sides and taper the back and let him know that I am growing it out – losing the fade. On the top, my hair is very long, sharply and deeply parted on the side and tightly slicked over. The front, I wear in a quiff. I will say good bye to this look as I instruct him to even it all out to a medium length with his shears – not sure if I’ll lose the side part but I’ll probably ask him for some advice on that – I want to be completely open to change. The thing is, this change I feel compelled to do isn’t exactly exciting to me. The UNDERCUT – now that was exciting when I first had it done! Whenever I look at images of guys wearing an undercut – I still love what I see. I think it is the most flattering, edgy, smoky hot look on a man that I have ever witnessed in my lifetime. So why am I compelled to change – and to something that will probably be more ordinary and less stand out? I guess things just get old and it’s human nature to go with the flow so I’m just going to go with my deep seeded feeling to do just that. Not sure if I will be happy with the end result because the fact remains – I love undercuts – will always love undercuts. Maybe stepping away from an undercut won’t be all that bad and maybe I will discover that, yes, a change can be enjoyable. Guess I am going to find out! Perhaps the undercut will resurface in a few years – I’ll definitely be game again.

    It is a military style from world war II and all sides wore it… Take a look at one of the most famous photo’s in the world. It is a soldier Kissing a girl after we won the war. Guess What!? He has this haircut. Girls liked it back then, girls like it now. Get over trying to decide what a straight male should look like. I’m pretty sure most of these soldiers would beat the Sh** out of you if you made fun of their haircut.

If you were ever to meet one of these haircut people then i’m sure you’ll have a great conversation about hair and hair and hair. I like my hair, it’s long and rugged, I never use any product – a real bed head. one day, when you have a job and kids, you may stop wasting time on such trivials…….

      I went to a work function last night heavily populated by gay male nurses, and they *all* had this cut. 12 guys, all identical. One of them had complained in the past that gay men hang onto a style long after it’s out of fashion so you end up with the ‘Clone’ effect. Curious, I typed “Why do all gay guys have Hitler Hair?” into Google, which bought me here.

    I like this look. A friend of mine has this cut and also wears it in a mohawk. Personally I wear a fade but its more of a military fade going from the 1 guard to a 7 guard on the top. (1/8th of an inch to about 3/4th of an inch). The main reason is I like this look on me and its fast. 1 dab of hair goop and its done it 5 seconds. My entire morning routine is only 13 minutes! Ive had my barber cut it long on the top but not that long, My hair is wavy curls. Kept short you would never know it had any curl, but when its long it has a mind of its own. These guys mainly all have stick straight hair (except for the massive curly photos….which I think looked rather bad on them). Otherwise I like this look….but that because they selected attractive models so of course they could have bed head and still look attractive so show me the hair cut on some real men. One point…. this is also how Miley Cirus is wearing her hair….just saying.

I’m now 49 years old and it still looks feckin ace ! American’s take so much longer to catch up on European fashion styles. It’s also been part of the “rockabilly” revival in the UK for 30 years or more, and its where this current popular style seen on a huge percentage of men of all ages and races has come back into fashion!. Rockabiliy fashion is HUGE in Europe (hence why skinny jeans and check/plaid shirts are back in vogue, and ladies 50’s style dresses are selling like hotcakes here. The fact that that stupid S**t Miley Cyrus (as did Rihanna and numerous other celebrities) chose this as her latest style, just means that she has her finger on the pulse unlike others. Whether you love it or hate it, on boys, men, girls or women, I’m afraid its here for a few years more. As you American’s say “get with the program”.

    I’ve been a stylist for 22 years…Only half of thes are undercuts. Some are pomps, some are high and tight fades. You can have a lot of length on top and a high and tight fade as many of these pictures have and it still blends. Just saying, be cautious about using a style name incorrectly to a stylist. I learned in the early 90’s when people wanted a “step” and used it incorrectly, to articulate what that means back to them. Because what most of them wanted was a heavy weightline, or sort of a wedge cut, not a step.

    I had this haircut over a year ago. It’s called the 20s Undercut. Most men thought it cool, most women made fun of me.

    Women don’t want ALL men to get this, with the exception of Beckham, of course, they want young, studly men in their 20s to get it.

    actually yes, looking through the pics again, I also have to say I hate it. It’s a very specific type of alternative hipster look and not my style at all (i could probably pull it off ok as there are many variations but it just wouldn’t be me) you might as well be recommending tight jeans, vest and leather boots to ALL men. It might look ok to good on them but itd be so superficial.

    Nope nope nope. Most of these men pull it of well, but it’s definitely not for everyone. My friend (african american) has done this and, trust me, his hair looks way better when the sides are grown out. Otherwise the top sticks out everywhere

    For the most part, any guy who cares and puts too much effort into his hair, should not be called a “man”. More like a flamboyant scrawny little boy who cares too much about the way he looks. And “girls” these days…you fall for these things and then you ask yourself “where did all the REAL men go?” hahaha

    I literally did 3 of these haircuts today at my salon. YES I think there is a way that every man can make this work for them. I did 3 different versions of this cut for 3 different guys from three different ethnicities with 3 different face shapes and styles and styling time requirements. Fabulous! They all loved it so much that they couldnt thank me enough.

      Oh, so just because the SS used to get this haircut means we’re not allowed to have this hairstyle. They also wore clothes, we should stop wearing clothes. Oh, and they spoke German, we should just get rid of Germany. You’re a very intelligent person.

      I agree 1000% with you. I, too, say “Ew”. This stupid haircut looks like they’re trying to avoid looking completely like a nazi and/or a punker, but, it just can’t quite be pulled off, and made to look sharp or classy. I say: “Yuck”, guys, have you no taste,or is your taste in your mouth. LOL.

    “ALL” is a bit much I would say. Please consider people’s hair textures (especially when thinking about different cultural backgrounds/ethnicities) before making such a “fashionable” announcement on haircuts and styles. This is a very limiting post to have such an “all”-inclusive headline.

    I have a rather long face and hence it looks like I have a big head. I do however have really thick hair, is this cut an option for me? I was under the impression that I would need to make my head look wider rather than shaving the sides really close.

        You obviously have no idea what you’re saying Mimi, the black guys have very short, or even relaxed hair in these photos. Asian guys already have straight hair, like Caucasians. As for the pics of ‘curly’ hair it’s obviously fake. Where are pics for mixed dudes? I have natural curly hair that isn’t in the pics, so it isn’t for every man. It’s optimised for straight hair. Stop making comments as if you’re a guy with this problem.

    Since acquiring this hair cut, I’ve felt great! I usually get looks more frequently from women (usually the oversized on Plenty of Fish). After applying copious amounts of gel and killing half of the o-zone layer with hairspray, my feminine side usually comes out and I do a little kooky dance to make sure the hold is permanent. People often confuse me with a crusty old Navy chief or Miley Cyrus, but just those two because I don’t have those giant anal plugs in my ears. Welcome aboard younger generation of dingus.

      J Harris, the slicked back look with the short sides is straight out of 1925 prohibition. Men with REAL style and poise rocked this look. Straight hardcore gangsters rocked this look with a three piece suit. What the fuck are you talking about?

    I’ve had my hair like this for the last 6 months. The last time I had an undercut was when I was 13. I have had your typical fade (clean, nice fade. i dont play when it comes to my hair) a 2 guard on top and 0 to 1/2 on the sides. I’m 28 now and have had no idea what to do with my hair since it has been long. It’s about 6in on top and the sides are 1/2. I have worn a hat most of the time it has been long cause it falls in my face an I jus simply don’t know what to do with it. I usually put a lil pomade in it and jus slick it back. I didn’t even know if there was a name to the style. I told my hairstylist I wanted the top long and sides short. So, she hooked it up. But now that I’ve seen this. No more hat for me!! Time to start rockin it. I will say, I have gotten a lil more attention from the lady’s since my hair has been this way. Now it all makes sense.
