There are no surprises with buzz cuts. What you see is what you get, basically. It’s a simple and no nonsense haircut that you just wash and wear every day, with no need to brush or comb, or apply styling products to. It’s the kind of haircut that suits guys who don’t want a lot of maintenance but still want to look sexy and stylish.
A buzz cut does not need to be closely buzzed or shaved to the skin. It may all look the same to you, but buzz cuts do come in different lengths. There are buzz cuts that are shaved close to the skin, which you normally see on military men. And then there are buzz cuts that are shorter on the sides and slightly thicker on top.
Because a buzz cut requires a lot of hair to be shaved off, not all guys are big fans of it. Buzz cuts also require a certain shape of head and face to be considered flattering. If you have an oddly shaped head or an elongated face, a buzz cut may not be the best choice of hairstyle. But take a look at these eight buzz haircuts and pick one that you think will look best on you.

Maybe he just wanted something uncomplicatedand simple. Maybe we will never know the reason, but we can all just agree to disagree that it looks mighty fine on him. With hair or without hair, this is one lucky dude who really enjoys the best of both worlds.

When Adam Levine appeared on TV with all of his hair shaved off, it broke the internet. Fans all over the world mourned the sexy and rock star ‘do, and did not hesitate to tell the Maroon 5 frontrunner exactly how they felt about the buzz cut.
But now that the hair is starting to grow, people are falling in love again with the man, and the hair. The stubble didn’t hurt the look, either.
That’s just how it is with buzz cuts. You have to see how close you should have your hair buzzed in order to find out which looks good and flattering.
Instead of shaving it all off close to the skin, try a light buzz first and see how you like it. If you want it shorter, you can always have another go with the trimmer.

Buzz cuts are one of the manliest haircuts you can ever wear. We know guys who have been wearing buzz cuts for years, and they are perfectly happy with this kind of hair. We truly get it if growing out their hair again is no longer an option.
With a buzz cut, you no longer have to care for your hair. Instead, you need to start taking care of your scalp. You still need to shampoo and condition your scalp to keep it moisturized and avoid scalp problems related to dryness (dandruff, itchiness, etc.).
You also need to exfoliate your scalp to avoid razor bumps and burns, or ingrown hairs, which can be caused by frequent shaving.

Buzz cuts are also the answer to receding hairlines, fading hair, and balding heads. How many guys have you seen with thinning hair who suddenly became hotter just by shaving it all off? No hair is oftentimes more attractive than holding on to the few strands of hair left on your scalp.
So before you start wearing that combover, or before you purchase that toupee online, think about getting a buzz cut, and how better looking you’ll become by simply embracing the inevitable.

You can still style a buzz cut. If you leave the top hair slightly longer, with the sides and back shaved closely, you can have more room for styling. You can still do a combover or a combdown, and even a side sweep or a pompadour!
