Don't get stuck with a bad haircut

Having a good haircut is essential. But how do you communicate what you want when you visit your hair stylist? I suggest taking a photo of a hairstyle, so your stylist can help you achieve exactly what you want. You know what they say: a picture is worth a thousand words.

Shorter Hairstyles

What is a buzz cut? Basically your hair is sheered to the same length all over your head using clippers. I know guys who do this themselves with their own clippers. I wouldn't dare.

Classic short hairstyles are just that--classic. No matter what hairstyles are in fashion, a short hairstyle always looks nice and no one will fault you for sporting one. A classic hairstyle has the added benefit of not looking dated in photos.

Short hair styles, of course, don't have to be classic cuts. I also like shorter hairstyles that are a little more fashion forward and interesting. You can find inspiration for those types of cuts in these photo galleries.

Curly Hair

Curly hair can be notoriously difficult to manage. Have curly hair and don't don't what to do with it? We can help, just let these photo galleries inspire you. 

Longer Hairstyles

More recently shaggy hairstyles have been quite in style. I thought it would be a passing fad but they seem to be a lasting trend. Keep in mind that "shaggy" doesn't mean "unkempt". 

Medium length hairstyles mean something much different for men than they do for women. On women, a medium-length hairstyle would hit just above the shoulders. For men, the hairstyle extends to around the ear area, but isn't long enough to put into a ponytail. 

Long hairstyles for men are very popular right now. You tend to see these styles on younger guys, since most men in the working world wouldn't be able to get away with it. However, that's not a hard and fast rule! If you work in a more creative field or a relaxed work environment, longer hairstyles can be perfectly appropriate for mature men (cut is properly cared for and styled, of course).

Celebrity Hair

 

Many of us use celebrities for style inspiration. After all, celebs have access to the best hairstylists and fashion designers at their disposal. Plus, you can easily find a star with similar coloring or facial structure to your own to help you visual how the style will look on you.

Fun and/or Unusual

The faux-hawk, as it is aptly named, is a hairstyle that is a much tamer version of a Mohawk. Of course over the years many iterations of this hairstyle have come about.  

Extreme hairstyles are fun to look at, even if you'd never consider sporting an extreme 'do yourself.
