Gents, whether you’re looking for a low-maintenance look or a style statement, we’ve got you covered.
1. The Breezy Buzz Cut
It’s no surprise that the buzz cut remains a summer favourite. Easy to maintain and refreshingly cool, this classic cut keeps you feeling light and airy during the hottest days.
2. Tapered Crop with Textured Top
This modern style offers a short, clean finish on the sides and back while leaving a bit of playful texture up top. It’s perfect for those summer evenings out.
3. The Relaxed Mullet
Making waves this year, the mullet has made its comeback. The 2023 version emphasizes a more subdued transition from front to back, perfect for those looking to combine nostalgia with a modern twist.
4. Short Sides with Natural Waves
Let the ocean inspire your hairstyle! Keep the sides short and allow the top to form natural waves, giving off those beach vibes, even if you’re miles from the shore.
5. The Slicked-Back Look
A timeless favourite, the slicked-back style remains a popular choice for those looking to stay sophisticated despite the rising temperatures.
6. Angular Fringe with Faded Sides
Add some edge to your summer look with this style. The angular fringe stands out while the faded sides keep things cool and modern.
7. High-Top Fade for Curly Hair
For those with curly locks, the high-top fade is a stylish way to let those curls take the center stage, while ensuring a cool, breezy feel around the sides and back.
8. Side Swept Undercut
A bold yet elegant style, the side-swept undercut pairs a longer top with sharply cut sides, making a definitive summer statement.
9. The Pompadour Lite
The classic pomp but with a summer spin – it’s shorter, lighter, and less intensive, ensuring you retain the signature volume without the weight.
10. Crew Cut with Subtle Line Designs
This summer, jazz up the traditional crew cut by incorporating subtle line designs or patterns on the sides for that extra flair.
