Men’s Undercut: The On-Trend Hairstyle for Men

Masculine, striking and very trendy – the men’s undercut hairstyle is asserting itself as the ‘it’ look. For this style, the hair is trimmed short all around, from the bottom to the temples, and left a lot longer on the crown. We show you which versions of the trendy style are especially popular right now.

Short or long? This particular hairstyle actually does not require a clear decision. The undercut is both short and long, and therefore a relaxed yet hip all-rounder compared to other hairstyles for men. It is wonderfully versatile to style – sleek, undone or tied up in a braid. No wonder men’s undercut hairstyles are hotly coveted!

The trademark of an undercut for men: Around the lower part of the head approximately up to the temples, the hair is trimmed short while the top hair stays a bit longer. A sharp edge or flowing transition makes the 2-in-1 look radically casual or super cool. So what versions of the male undercut trend are topping the hair charts right now? We’ll show you!

Enticingly longer undercut in the messy style with fashion designer Zeng Fengfei

Trend hairstyle XXL: With this new version, the extra-long curly top hair extends past the eyebrows in front. The sides are about one to two centimetres short. And the styling potential is gigantic! Mousse and a blow dryer give the look an extra volume kick. Top tools for everyday use: Hair wax and gel. Countless cool styles can be created with them in next to no time. Wildly tousled, curly with fringe or slicked back with gel for a classy look – this undercut hairstyle for men is perfect for anyone who loves variety.

Hint: For a wholly new looking undercut, men can form a parting and comb the long top hair to the side instead of the front. The short sections are skilfully covered this way for an update to the undercut.
