Haircuts for men: types and 7 trends for 2022. When talking about men’s styling, perhaps many thought that men have it easier than women. Because most of them have short hair and do not need much attention in that area. Maybe you think a simple cut will suffice.
However, we tell you that the subject is much broader than you imagine. Since there are more than 20 types of haircuts and how to wear them.
For this reason, we will dedicate ourselves to talking about the types of cuts that exist. And the trends that will be taking place in 2022 in men’s hair.
Types of Cuts
It is a shaved style in which the machine is passed at level 1. Because the hair is worn very short and is uniform throughout the head. If you start to experience hair loss or notice a receding hairline, this cut is for you.
It consists of a cut where the nape, sideburns, and sides are worn very short or shaved. And the hair that remains on top is worn longer and with even a little volume.
The gradient should be faded without visible marks to be a clean and successful cut.
It is very similar to the buzz cut and confused by many as if they were the same type.
However, in the military-style, the hair is a little (not much) longer on the side part, approximately between levels ½ and 2. And on the top portion, which is worked with level 3 ½.
This cut will suit you very well if you have a marked face or fine hair. Only make sure that whoever does it does a final review with scissors to give the last fade.
This cut is worn shaved on the sides and with a crest (longer hair) on the top center of the head. All the way from the forehead to the nape of the neck.
Long and Short Crew Cut
They are types of classic cuts that do not go out of style. They do not cease to be current whatever the year and the trends in vogue.
The short crew is the cut worn with a side parting, the hair being practically equally abundant on all sides, with only a minimal difference. An elegant and polished appearance is sought, and it is cut at a level of 2 ½ on the sides and 3 on the top.
As for the long crew, the same formula applies but cut to level 4 on the sides and 4 ½ on the top to be more abundant than the previous description.
It flatters all faces.
It is a retro cut that was very fashionable in the ‘70s. It consists of taking the top part and the sides in a level 4, leaving the back part longer, even touching the shoulders.
A perfect exponent of this type of cut is Joe Exotic, the famous protagonist of Tiger King.
Another retro cut appears with the Pompadour, which dates back to the 50s and in which the bangs were given prominence.
Currently, the cut is worn shorter on the sides and with the volume on top with natural waves or volume.
This cut has been popular among gentlemen for quite some time, so it is not a novelty as such. The idea is to take sides to the temple level relatively short, being longer at the top at the crown level.
It can be worn with confidence regardless of age and face type; just avoid it if you have fine hair or symptoms of baldness.
It is a variation of the undercut, except that in the bun type, the hair on the top part is left much longer than the previous one to wear it tied with a ponytail or bow at the back.
A classic of men’s cuts, especially for boys. It was used exclusively on straight hair with a length that reached the ears and practically covered the forehead, being completely circular and linear.
However, it has taken center stage nowadays, even among adults, wearing it even shorter regardless of whether the hair is straight or curly.
This cut is ideal for the most rebellious boys who like to wear long hair.
And not because of the fact of having long hair, it should only be allowed to grow, and that’s it.
This cut must be carefully cared for and maintained not to give it a feminine appearance.
Therefore, when cutting it, care must be taken that the layers do not remain above the ears. It must be cut into straight manes, rounding the front area.
7 trends for 2022
Long bangs + short back
This very ‘90s type of cut involves taking the back relatively low and the top in lots of hair and volume. And maybe a parted part down the middle to complete the retro look.
It is the faded cut on the sides, being more abundant at the top. But applying it to extremely curly hair, so it will look great on you if you have this texture.
Short and tiered hair
It is the last type of cut described, brought to the best surfer style of the 80-90s. Yes, retro cuts are back.
Similar to the light French cut, but with the sides lower than the original trend.
It is worn abundantly but with more volume and length at the top. Covering the middle of the forehead to give a casual and tousled look.
Bangs + long sideburns
Trends and typical cut from the 70s sneaks in again in 2022.
This type of hair is worn abundantly, in layers, short hair, and as if a haircut is needed since it is messy and the sideburns are worn long.
Cut on two levels
The bottom is worn very low, and the top is long and layered for volume. A model of this cut to inspire you: Chris Hemsworth.
