Your fortnightly trip to the barbers may be starting to
feel a bit repetitive. Or, you’re having trouble getting the
girls. Well instead of sitting around and sulking, why not
freshen up your look with a haircut that women actually love to
see on guys. Some may be obvious, some a bit random, but from
an Idle woman’s perspective, these are our favourites.
Feeling like you’re stuck in a rut, getting the same haircut
every time you take a trip to the barbers, and fancy a change?
Well you and only you can change this. Mix it up a bit, get a
fresh trim, what ever mood you’re feeling, why not embrace it
and get the chop. If you’ve decided yes this is what I need to
do then we have some hairstyles that us girls
love seeing on guys. Men’s haircuts for 2018 are highly
influenced by what women see on the TV and red carpet, because
you know, we pay attention to this stuff. We get carried away
looking at celebrity cuts and what men’s haircuts look best. So
because we think we know best, here
are seven hairstyles women love on guys.
Shorter round the sides and longer on the top, David Beckham has been the
king of the undercut hairstyle for a
while now. It’s a classic, which is why women love it, and him.
It shows easy style and suits a lot of different face shapes.
It’s a men’s short haircut that still has some texture and
length for girls to handle. The layers on top may be long but
it’s upkeep doesn’t have to take too long – a quick blow dry of
the hair and small dose of pomade will leave you with the
undercut look you’re after.
A popular men’s hairstyle back in the 1900s among working class
men, it has taken a journey and now it’s just as popular
amongst an array of men in today’s society. The short-long
contrast shows the layers from every angle, showing off the
ears but not being completely sparse of hair. It’s a centre of
attention kind of haircut and everyone knows girls like a guy
that’s outgoing and (slightly) cocky.
This is a popular men’s hairstyle right now which it seems to
be having its major moment thanks to the Peaky Blinders. Think
Thomas Shelby – the guy that’s getting women excited to watch a
show that’s full of violence, drama and political nonsense
(well, that’s what we get from it anyway). His style may be
classic and smart with his long coats, three piece suits and lace
up work boots, but it’s his hair (and face obviously) that
really hits the nail on the head. The 1920’s hairstyle
that Cillian Murphy, who plays the head of the Shelby
family, wears has become a symbol of style for the modern man.
This men’s hair trend has caught on quite fast so your barber
should have done a few of these already. Fairly similar to the
undercut but instead of the hair on top going back, it’s
brushed forward. Show pictures or simply say you’re after
the Peaky Blinder
look – they’ll know what you’re after. If you’re
nervous about going too short on the sides, maybe start with a
grade up before you go all out. Either way this is a favourite
of ours as it shows confidence, a high sense of style and gives
us the impression that you can take risks – even if it’s just
with a new haircut.
This is old school and we love it. Classic men’s hairstyles are
always ones to consider when choosing your next style. The pompadour is similar to
the quiff haircut just slightly neater. More styling goes into
it and this is why we like it. It tells us that you’ve put
effort into your appearance and women love it when a guy looks
after himself. The hairs swept back with a lot of volume and
with every hair in place.
If you need some inspiration just think James Dean or Danny
Zuko. Admittedly is a very 1950/60’s hairstyle but it’s been
reinvented and brought forward to the 21st century. And believe
it or not, this classic men’s hairstyle was originally brought
to popularity by Madame de Pompadour – yes a women,
because you know all great styles come from us girls. It’s a
style that gives us the feeling of nostalgia, the 50s icon
loving and the smoothness and slick vibes from the old school
films that we love so much. So if you want to stand out, this
is the cut to try.
There are so many different variations of the buzz cut (who
knew) so finding one that suits you won’t be that hard. It
doesn’t have to be completely shaven – you can leave some
length on the top or you can have the same length all over, it
really depends on how brave you’re feeling. There’s also the
military style buzz cut that
we love. This is basically Jake Gyllenhaal in Jarhead.
Where he used to have fairly medium length hair, it has now all
gone and it’s taken years off his face and made him into a
bad-ass. And this is all down to the buzz cut.
If you’ve chosen this as your new men’s hairstyle then we
immediately like it. It portrays some kind of importance as
well as raw masculinity and toughness. So basically everything
a women looks for in a guy. The style is bold and also looks
really good in a suit, so whether you’re going for an off duty casual look or
dressing up for an occasion, this men’s haircut has the
potential to go far. So if you want to appear to have some kind
of authority then a buzz cut will be the perfect risk to take.
The name may not sound that amazing but the look, if you get it
right, definitely does. We’re going for a Leonardo Dicaprio vibe form
Romeo and Juliet here. You want it to be a medium length around the
side – you know, not too short and not overly messy. On top you
need it long enough so you can add some product and slick it
back. And by slick we don’t mean so it stays in one place, you
want the front to fall forward and still have some kind of
movement. Women love this style as it gives off a relaxed,
suave look that just gets to us. We can’t tell you why, but if
you’ve got the curtains look locked down, we’re sure to notice
However, you need to be careful when it comes to the curtains look because it
can either look like you’ve missed the last few haircuts or
you’ve put too much gel on and you have a greasy mop. Trendy
men’s hairstyles need to have the right styling with the right
amount of product. Don’t go over board and if the styles cut
correctly, you won’t need much product anyway.
Some of you may think that long hair belongs on the beach and
for the surfers of the world, but us women appreciate a bit of
length, on your head of course. We’re not saying it should be
longer than ours but a cut that sits just above your neck is a
good length to go for. However, with long locks you need to
have the right hair type. Thick and with some kind of texture
is always best, as a smooth and straight long look isn’t going
to get you all the girls. Men’s long haircut’s need to have
movement, waves and styling spray added so you
can get them looking how us women like – so not that much
Men’s curly hairstyles are always best long, or long ish.
Shorter styles with curly hair don’t really do
it for us – it’s just appears frizzy and no one really wants to
see frizzy hair. The best hairstyles for men that are
curly or textured are the ones that are long – it gives us
something to grab and if it’s shampoo’d and conditioned well,
you’ll have all the ladies looking at you and your hair.
This is the ultimate business cut and every women loves a
business man. It’s smart, sophisticated and neat, and it
usually means you look good in a suit. And
every women loves a man that can pull off a suit.
You’re a City boy and you spend your days working in the office
with your hair in place. You can’t be looking tousled or
scruffy, so you need a cut that suits what you do and how you
want to be perceived. And us women like that, because you
should always ‘dress for the job you want, not the job
you have’, but within reason of course! So save
letting your hair down for the weekend when you can calm it
with the gel and go for a more natural look.
The side parting look is sleek and suave. This is quite a short
cut so you need it either on a one or two around the edges and
a little longer on top. The top should be long enough to sweep
over and stay in place. You don’t want the top of your hair
covering the short sides, so a haircut every two weeks is a
necessity. Keep the look looking good with wax or a good pomade and use a comb
to brush it into place – the smoother it is, the smarter it
looks and that’s what we want to see.
On That Note
The best men’s haircuts are the ones you wear with confidence –
it’s all about attitude and how you carry yourself. This’ll be
the new you, your new look, so embrace it and you’ll end up
feeling as fresh as ever. Whether it’s a men’s undercut
hairstyle or a style that manages your wild curls, make sure
you have the right products for it, keep it trimmed and don’t
just forget about it, because every women wants a man that can
look after himself. The more effort, the better – just make
sure the effort looks subtle. Yes, women’s wants are confusing
but it’s something you’ll need to learn.
