Men’s Short Haircuts: See Trends for 2021

Many men end up always investing in the same look because they find it a challenge to vary in style with their short strands. But for those who aren’t afraid of scissors (or the machine!), there’s a good range of men’s short haircuts to bet on. Want to see it?

We have prepared a special selection with 14 different options for men’s short haircuts, which suit different types of hair. Just choose the one that best suits your personality and style. Come on!

1. Gradient or fade

Lately, the gradient cut, which is also known as fade, has gained the attention of men looking for a modern look. To get this men’s short hairstyle, the sides must be shaved or lower than the top of the head, forming precisely the gradient effect.

2. Peaked

For those who want to keep the strands short, but not too short, we suggest that you make one of the men’s short haircuts with scissors. This will help make them look light and moving.

If you want even more voluminous strands, use a little mousse to thicken your hair. Or, use a texturizing spray that helps with the volume and texture of the hair.

3. military court

Also known as ‘crew cut’, the military cut is another option for men’s short haircuts that are accurate for those looking for practicality in everyday life. The style gets its name because it was popularized by American soldiers in the 1930s. There’s no denying that it’s a charm!

4. Undercut

The undercut is that cut with volume at the top of the head and completely shaved at the back of the neck and sides.

It’s perfect for anyone looking to stay in fashion, but with a simple cut. To keep the style always up to date, the ideal is to do maintenance every 10 days, to leave the underside well shaved.

5. Cut with risk

Another modern and even fun option. The streak or stripe cut is created with a blade to look sharp and straight. And it’s worth doing it in different ways, such as a single straight line, just in the middle of the head, or even several parallel lines. You can let the creativity flow!
