What are some of the best men’s hairstyles that don’t need using hair products?
Do you want your hair to look chic, but you don’ have much time to spend on your hair or don’t like to use hair products? What do you do? Thankfully, there are many low-maintenance haircuts for guys that need little to no styling or upkeep. On top of that, most of them are straightforward to cut at home so that you can save money and time.
Classic Taper is one of them: a short classic taper haircut that is sophisticated and low maintenance. The sides and back are faded, whereas the top is longer than the sides and back. It can work at any length. For a short haircut, you don’t need any product at all.
The Ivy League haircut is another great alternative for guys who enjoy a professional impression. It leaves enough hair on top to be parted and gives a more orderly look than the classic taper, as the hair is much more uniform in most cases and is best for men with strong, angular facial traits.
While the Caesar Cut may not get the high points for current men’s fashion, it’s a simple, straightforward cut that demands nearly no maintenance. If you wish your hair to be super short, the Caesar may be the right option for you. In this cut, the hair is the same length all over.
Using various hair products to style a particular haircut could be a challenge for everyone. So it’s better to choose low-maintenance haircuts that don’t require an hour or dozen hair products to look fine! Here are the best low-maintenance haircuts for men with different hair types.
As you may know, the buzz cut is the haircut for military staff. It is also a super short haircut that is nearly shaved in the sides, so it doesn’t need any hair products or styling.
Crewcut is one of those haircuts that look attractive in neat and messy styles. It doesn’t need any hair products to look fashionable.
• Taper fade haircut
I recommend taper fade to those men with thick hair. You can specify the fade around your neck and sides based on your desire. Creating textured cuts on the top makes it easier to style this haircut.
• Ivy League Haircut
Ivy League Haircut is known as a long crewcut. It’s a good choice for business or office men cause it makes you look sophisticated and classy. A good brushing would be enough to style this haircut perfectly with no particular hair product.
When speaking of not using hair products for a specific hairstyle, the mind goes to the obvious options like “going Vin Diesel-bald” or getting a haircut that’s short enough, like Jason Statham.
Also, suppose you have naturally curly hair. In that case, it’s a plus point because you can clean your hair per your usual shower routine (at least four times per week) while cutting off its extra volume and combing it once or twice a day before restyling it with a hairdryer.
1. Buzz Cut
Any haircut done using electric clippers is usually referred to as a buzz cut. However, it’s traditionally associated with extra-short haircuts ranging from 1/16 to 5/8 of an inch in length. Although it is low-maintenance in terms of styling – because you have to put no effort into it – it requires regular attention, depending on how rapidly hair grows. On the positive side, you can have the buzz at home without spending additional money on overpriced barbershop visits. Every electric shaver comes with a variety of attachments to choose from.
2. Crew Cut
University rowing teams used to wear the crew cut. The hair on top is longer and eventually fades into a tight taper around the neck. Although this one is a challenging cut to do at home, it’s not impossible. All you’ll need is a variety of clipper blade guards in various sizes and decent visualizing abilities. Longer hair in the front, commonly styled into a quiff, is the look’s hallmark.
3. Taper Haircut
The taper haircut is perhaps the year’s most popular hairdo. It’s the shortest around the neck and progressively becomes longer as it progresses to the crown. As a result, if you’re trying for a more #wokeuplikethis vibe, this style generally takes a little taming with your fingertips on top. Even as it matures, the taper cut may still look great and save you a few visits to the barber.
4. Side Part
Keeping your hair on the sides considerably shorter helps your hair look fuller on the dome. While a side part may be difficult to style at such a short length, you can always ask for more definitions in that area from your barber. Then, using a tiny amount (depending on the thickness of your hair), brush your top hair over to the opposite side and show off your part. You can apply hair cream to give shine to your hair for a more formal look. Otherwise, for a more understated look, choose something with a matte finish.
5. French Crop
The French crop is a chic, contemporary spin on the traditional Caesar cut. This simple hairstyle is intended to give volume to your top hair without the hassle of creating a quiff or pomp. A complete hair dome is coupled with taper or fades around your head, starting at the corners of your brows. The French crop differs from the Ceasar cut in that it has a blunt fringe in the front. Its length varies according to personal desire, although it usually does not extend over the tops of your temples. This look’s style choices are expanded thanks to the fringe.
6. Ivy League
Because it’s done using a ‘number 7’ or ‘number 8’ blade guard on your trimmer, the Ivy League haircut is possibly the most extended buzz haircut there is. With the longest hair on top, use shorter clipper attachments to blend in the sides and back. This cut is low-maintenance while still providing enough length to experiment with various styles for various occasions. You may smooth it back, comb it into a side part, or even do a little quiff on top for added volume.
7. Short Slick Back
A refined fade or undercut is best paired with a short slicked back haircut. The contrast will draw attention to your natural volume on top while also visually increasing it. All that’s left is to finish the look with a comb and just a little styling product. You may also use your fingertips if you want a less sleek look. The short slick back is the ideal low-maintenance design for men who don’t have much time in the bathroom but don’t want to sacrifice a trendy look at work or after hours.
