The undercut has become by far the most popular men’s hairstyles for guys that like to look good.

What is the undercut? The simplest way to describe the hairstyle would be short sides and long top.

The beauty of the undercut is both the simplicity and the amount of variation it has.

No matter what hair type you have, be it straight or curly, there exists an undercut style for you.



Find Your Undercut Style

Undercuts can be split into two main categories. Disconnected and Faded.

  • A disconnected undercut is when the sides are much shorter than the top to the point there is a sharp contrast between the two. The sides are also only one length.disconnected undercut
  • A faded undercut has the sides blending into the longer top, so there is varying lengths until you eventually reach the top of your hair. faded undercut



Perfect Hair Texture

Don't Shampoo!

If you want to achieve a texturized gritty look for your hair that is.

Shampoo strips your hair of its natural oils leaving it way too brittle and flimsy for it to want to cooperate with styling. If you’re interested about the many benefits of ditching shampoo check out this article on the No Poo regiment.
