Men’s Short Hairstyles

2002’s show hair trend is all about more fluid, romantic and textured styles.

Yes, you can still get a buzzcut, but we are moving away from those blunt or overtly sharp styles. So if you plan on leaving a bit of length at the top, try working in more texture for a relaxed look. 

How about one of these short length hairstyles?

Men’s Medium Hairstyles

Ditch the massive quiff and pomp for 2022 because it’s all about the soft, flowy medium-length hairstyle.

Just like the shorter cuts, these mid-length hairstyles are all about effortless texture. Aim for a style with effortless movement to really keep up with the trend. 

  • Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mid-Length Swept Back Hairstyle: Actor Jake Gyllenhaal’s hair is the kind of enviably thick, shiny, stylish thatch we’d sell our Playstation 5 for. If there was an Oscar for Best Hollywood Hair, Jake would take a little gold fella home every year.
  • Oliver Cheshire’s Medium Length Quiff: In this red carpet shot, model Oliver Cheshire’s medium length quiff hairstyle is just the right side of polished – with a side order of slightly tousled.
  • Harry Styles’ GRAMMY Awards 2021 Hairstyle: Harry Styles is the personification of effortless cool. Performing (and winning!) at the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards, Harry perfectly paired a leather suit and feather boa with his flawlessly coiffed curls.
  • Jaden Smith’s Afro Hair Medium Twists With Fade: The actor and musician Jaden Smith is the ultimate hair chameleon. Well, if you’re Will Smith’s son you’ve got to find a way to stand out, no? This is one of his more classic, natural looks. Smith has experimented with hairstyles over the years, but he currently rocks the fade with his natural twists and we’re all for it.

Men’s Long Hairstyles

Letting loose is the theme of longer length hairstyles. It’s less about slicking all your hair back into a ponytail or manbun and more about keeping it loose and lived in. So, if a more dishevelled look is your thing, then here’s a style for you!

  • Jared Leto’s Long Tousled Hairstyle:We’ve come to expect actor Jared Leto’s longtousled hairstyle to always look the business on the red carpet. And the age-defying star hasn’t disappointed us here while on the promo trail for his new film, House of Gucci.Because he’s worth it, right?
  • Austin Butler’s Long Beachy Hairstyle: Austin Butler‘s hairstyle is the perfect example of how a sea salt spray can work wonders for long hair. This beachy loose-wave hairstyle looks effortless on him.
  • Joe Wicks’s Curly Shoulder-Length Hair: From PT heartthrob to National Treasure – courtesy of PE with Joe – fitness trainer Joe Wicks has the kind of long, lush waves that are the hair equivalent of a six-pack: something you want to show off all the time.
  • Jay-Z’s Freeform Dreadlocks With Congos: Jay-Z’s freeform dreadlocks are as cool and iconic as the man himself. Plus, it’s great to see celebs embracing natural hair looks like this.
