It’s a short haircut, so you don’t have a lot of hair to style or worry about. It will definitely save you a lot of time in the morning, because you can literally step out of the shower, wipe your head, dress up, and leave. You’ll still look very nice and very well put together.

It’s another classic example of haircut that you just wash and wear every day.

Just you and your hair, plus a ton of sex appeal and hot good looks, probably. It doesn’t get easier than this.

Buzz Cut Hair Inspiration # 3

It’s hard to imagine Wentworth Miller wearing any other haircut apart from the buzz cut. It has been ingrained in our brains, and it will be kind of a disappointment to see him wearing anything else. No matter how great he looks in it.

That’s the thing with buzz cuts, though. You have to have the right kind of face and the right shape of head to be able to pull the look off. Some guys have unsightly bumps at the back of the head, or scars that are too big not too notice. They may also have too round a face that may look even rounder without all that hair that can give their face a more flattering shape.

Buzz Cut Hair Inspiration # 4

A buzz cut need not be buzzed all over. You can still enjoy a little hair at the top, much like this buzz cut hairstyle. The sides and the back are buzzed, and the hair at the top is long and thick. It can be styled forward to make it look thick and spiky, or it can also be styled up to look tall and spiky.

Depending on how long the hair is, you can use a pomade or a hairstyling wax to make the hair look glossier and slicker. You can also wear it soft and natural, so that it’s nicer and silkier to the touch.

A buzz cut is also the quickest and easiest way you can address problems with thinning hair or receding hairlines. Rather than styling your hair in awkward comb overs or other ill-fitting hairstyles, you can just simply shave it all off and get a younger, hipper, new look in the process.

So many men have done it, and they ended up wearing the buzz cut as their signature hairstyle (Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, to name a few). And why not? It’s a great-looking hairstyle without having to do anything to your hair! Well, perhaps just a little sunscreen so that your scalp doesn’t burn. Other than that, it’s just a really wash and wear kind of hair.

Buzz Cut Hair Inspiration # 6

If you have just the right length of top hair, you can style your buzz cut into a nice and short pompadour, too. Nothing too fancy, though. Just a simple comb over with a little pomp at the front. It works just perfectly with the shaved sides and back. It also provides a nice contrast between shaved hair and long, slick hair.

Just apply a little pomade on the top hair, depending on how you want the top hair to look. If you want it to look slicker or glossier, you can apply more. If you want it soft and natural, just a pea-sized amount of pomade will be enough.
