Are you bored of your drab-looking hair? A new bold hair design can make a huge difference to your style and confidence, and with so much variety out there for men to choose from it can be hard to find something that’s just right for you. Whether you’re just looking for that extra flare or you’re in need of a complete switch-up, we’ve got the hair design for you! Grab some inspiration before your next barbershop visit or take on the challenge yourself – here are all the latest hair designs to get your style popping!
Minimal V Design
A simple design with a slight edge, the minimal v cut uses a skin fade and a sharp V shape placed at the back of the neck to create a cool but minimal hair design. You’ll still get plenty of attention with your fresh new look without the full-on stares that intricate designs can get. If you’re looking for a cut that won’t see you in the principles office or a meeting with your manager, the minimal V is the way to go
If you’re looking for something bold but not too aggressive, opt for a faded mohawk. This hair design is a twist on the traditional mohawk, where an undercut or fade is made on the sides of the head instead of being completely shaven. This cut is much more stylish and acceptable than the traditional spiked mohawks, so you can rock it even when you’re at work! Make sure to style the longer hair with some firm holding pomade for a lightweight slicked-back look.
Looking for a statement style? Show a little faith with a cross-cut hair design! Pair the cut with a fade for a stand-out look, or lower the cross to make it slightly more subtle. Placement, sizing, and the number of crosses is all up to you and your preferences – whatever you choose, be sure to rock it!
Similar to a 21st-century mullet, an undercut ponytail gives you the best of both worlds. Not only can you add a sweet hair design into your undercut, but you can choose to hide and reveal it using your long hair. When you want to show off that undercut, tie up your hair into a top bun or ponytail using some hair ties, and when you want that boho look, let those locks loose!
Bolt and Wave Design
Can’t decide between a lightning bolt or solid waves? Have both! With tapered sides, the cut starts off as a wave curving around the ear. The cut then follows through into an angular lighting bolt pattern, before waving back out and finishing at the base of the neck – creating a broken line straight through your fade. This hair design works great with dense hair, as the broken lineup is exaggerated for a more solid look.
Only for the daring, a flame hair design entails a lot of intricate cutting and styling. The sides are kept short and then flames are cut into both the sides and the back, creating a dope, flaming look. For added boldness, the flames can be dyed yellow, orange, red, or any color of your choice – you can even use neon hair colorant to really stand out from the crowd!
Gradient contrast neckline
If you want a hair design that’s only noticeable from the back, a gradient contrast neckline will do the trick! The cut uses two contrasting taper fades separated by a clean-shaven break at the back of the head. This stylish yet understated cut is a perfect balance for those who want a new look with minimal upkeep.
Lotus Flower Design
Usually shaved into the neck or around the ear line, a lotus flower hair design is a great addition to undercuts and fades. This style uses triangular petals that branch out into the rest of your cut.
It’s an eye-catching hair design that’s super on-trend and perfect for those who want to stand out from the crowd! Your barber can use either a stencil or work freehand to create your lotus design.
