The popular men’s hairstyles in 2019 will be stylish for everyone including hipsters to the CEO.

Don’t be discouraged if you are lacking in the voluminous hair department. 2019 will bring stylish trends for men who have receding hairlines, without the dreaded “comb-over” look from era’s past.

There are many cool haircuts to try this year, so if you’re looking to experiment with the latest hair trends, this is the time to do it. Below, we’ll discuss the most popular men’s hairstyles, how to style, and type styling products to use.

1. Slicked Back Hairstyle

The classic slicked back is a hairstyle that gents have been rocking for years and became extremely popular in the later part of the 20th century. The slick back is a classic cut with a dash of trendiness. It is the perfect style for men with receding hairlines and prominent widow’s peaks. Keeping hair off your face will increase your facial features, giving you the appearance of being more chiseled.

If you are wanting to be more “bad-boy” than “boardroom” the slicked back with an undercut is your cut. It will feature a long, slicked-back top with drastic contrasting shaved sides.

To keep the look from appearing flat and lifeless, use a blow-dryer and a round brush to pull the roots upwards before applying pomade. Make sure to use a little pomade, warming it up in your hands; you can always add more if need. Using too much product will cause looks to be greasy and flat.

For gentlemen with a receding hairline ,you can just grab a comb and some product and slick your hair towards the back of your head from the front. Set with a little hairspray, of course making sure to not overdo with the product.

2. Comb-Over Hairstyle

While the term “comb-over” may cause you to think of an older gentleman attempting to disguise a hair loss issue, think again. This reinvented haircut appears even better with a full head of hair! You can stylize it by adding a deeper shaved part, making sure it is dramatic and clean. Styling is simple by using a blow-dryer, some product, and a comb.

However, if you suffer from hair loss, the comb-over hairstyle is excellent. Men who are balding can incorporate the receding hairline into the style by using it as the lowest point in the natural part. This will give the illusion that your hair is thicker and more weighty. You’ll want to have your haircut so that it is a little longer at the front to help achieve this look. Style using a small amount of product, comb your hair back and to one side and set with some hairspray.

3. Fades

Razor Shave

The razor shave is the ideal haircut if you have or are starting to have bald spots. While going the full shave may seem tedious, it’s far better than gradually losing your hair one patch at a time. The razor shave will keep you looking clean cut and distinguished while also maintaining a very masculine style. Plus styling time is cut to nothing since you’ll no longer have to bother doing anything to your hair.

Low Fade

Low-fade refers to the side length not the top of the style. The low-fade looks great with both short and medium lengths of hair on top. If you do opt for a medium length, you should consider a slicked back or a pompadour hairstyle to complete your look.

Skin Fade with Short Hair

This is a perfect look if you have a receding hairline and still in the early stages of balding. A skin fade with short hair is an edgy cut which allows more control over styling. The shaved sides and tapered length provide a modern aesthetic. This cut will draw attention away from your hairline and towards the longer hair at the top of your head, which can make you appear younger.

Mid Fade

The mid fade haircut starts at the point above the ears, making it distinctive yet still adaptable to a different style, including the sleek back, pompadour or comb-over. Complementary to short, straight hairstyles, it is the trendier interpretation of fade cuts. To ensure your styling of this cut is neat and under control, secure it with a firm-hold mousse or gel, again use sparingly and build up to secure the desired texture.

High Top

High top haircuts were popular back in the ’80s and are gaining popularity again. It features short sides (either an undercut or fade) and a sky-high top section, secured with product, this style is quirky and cool. It’s up to the wearer how long to take the top. Be sure you have plenty of volume in order to pull off having longer lengths.

Taper Fade with Pompadour

Taper fades lend the name to the tapered effect on the sides, going from thick on the top to almost shaved towards the nape of the neck. You will want to keep some length on top and roll the hair back into a pompadour. This will soften the appearance of a receding hairline or widow’s peak.

Quiff Fade with Pompadour

There are a lot of styling opportunities when it comes to tapered cuts. The quiff, like the pompadour, works better with a little extra length on the top of the head. To style a quiff, start like you would a pompadour, but instead of going straight back, you will roll the hair to the left or right. This is a particularly attractive hairstyle and will make you appear younger as well as distinguished. It also works to detract from any signs of receding or thinning hair.

4. Cuts

Buzz Cuts

There are a lot of styling opportunities when it comes to tapered cuts. The quiff, like the pompadour, works better with a little extra length on the top of the head. To style a quiff, start like you would a pompadour, but instead of going straight back, you will roll the hair to the left or right. This is a particularly attractive hairstyle and will make you appear younger as well as distinguished. It also works to detract from any signs of receding or thinning hair.

Crew Cut

The crew cut is one of the most popular hairstyles for men with or without a receding hairline. It works the same way as the buzz cut, by drawing attention away from your widow’s peak and back to your face. With the crew cut, you get to retain more hair length up top, not as much as would be needed for a quiff or pompadour. This is a great hairstyle for those going bald at younger ages and not ready to go with a razor cut.

High & Tight

Like the buzz and crew cut, high and tight is another military-inspired haircut. While it may not be the most versatile cut in terms of styling, it is functional, easy to maintain, masculine and will help to hide the signs of balding. High and tight cuts are cropped and faded to a very short length on the sides with a longer patch of hair left on the top. High and tight draws attention away from the hairline and back to the long hair, which helps define facial features and distract from thinning hair.

Ivy League

If you’re not familiar with the ivy league style, think of Ryan Reynold’s collegiate cut. This dapper style is the perfect way to combat your creeping hairline but is best for those of you who still have a bit of volume left throughout your mane. It is similar to the crew cut but has more volume on top.

Preppy Cut

This preppy cut is the ideal new hairstyle for the polished modern man. This look is perfect for every occasion and is stylish and clean-cut with the slightest relaxed touch. Preppy cuts use less styling products and are more tousled looking than the clean cuts of the ivy league and crewcuts.

Butch Cut

The butch cut involves the hair being shaved so that it is all the same length, similar to the buzz cut but with more length. Generally, it is cut between 1⁄4 and 3⁄4 inches and follows the contour of the head all the way around. This style should make it so that your receding hairline is barely visible while creating a masculine and clean-cut look. The butch cut is also super low maintenance, involving no products or blow drying.

Regulation Cut

The regulation cut is also a take on a traditional army hairstyle which became popular during the World War 2 era. The look involves the hair being extremely short at the sides, either tapered or shaven completely. The top if the hair is styled similar to a comb-over, but kept tighter with the use of products. Much like many comb over styles, the regulation cut incorporates your hairline into the style by using it as a feature for the part line.

Tight Waves

The tight wave haircut is a polished style that’s perfect for dapper mature gentlemen. Featuring an all-over short length with some slight volume added to the top. It is perfect for men with naturally wavy or curly hair. The look is ideal for businessmen and the like.

5. Half-Bun

The man bun continues to dominate as a popular style throughout the world, even though it was thought to be a temporary trend. This polished, half-bun version takes the trend to the next level. The bun can be a high bun, relaxed bun, or a simple loop through a holder, but it leaves the bottom half of hair loose. Men with curly hair will find that this style appears relaxed and casual contrary to men with straight hair, which will be sleeker and more refined. It is important to make sure to use a great shampoo and condition with this so hair is healthy and shiny.

6. Faux Hawk

A faux hawk is another look that is great for all men, those with a full mane and those lacking. Faux hawks are great to draw attention away from your receding hairline while also being a youthful and edgy hairstyle. Don’t go too crazy with the length though, keep it short-ish at the top. Then to achieve the height by spiking it up using a bit of product. Keep the hair neat at the sides, with either in a fade or slicked towards the back. If you don’t want to have the hair spiked up, you can style is similar to a slick back or a pompadour.

7. Middle Part

As with all styles everything comes back in full circle. The middle part hairstyle screams ‘90s, and has returned to popularity. This “curtain” style cut was unbelievably popular in the 90’s especially with the rocker/grunge crowds. However, rocking this look now you can leave the grunge at home by ensuring hair is clean and well maintained. It is a low maintenance haircut that requires only a set of shampoo and conditioner. Remember to keep your outfit modern to avoid looking like you haven’t left the 90’s.

8. Short & Messy

If you’re after a disheveled hairstyle, look no further than the short and messy. This is great to maintain a professional yet youthful hairstyle, but also to conceal a receding hairline. This haircut is short on the sides with more volume on top. After showering, apply some pomade and dry your hair with a towel. This will create natural texture for a messy, just rolled out of bed look.

9. Blonde Afro

A light, layered haircut can be a fresh look, particularly in the upcoming months. It is perfect if you already have a slight wave to your hair, this easy cut will be perfect for you. Having layers can lend to other trendy styles including the man bun, half bun, top knot, and the middle part!
