The Undercut – A Complete Guide

Here's a definitive guide for you when it comes to styling the undercut haircut:

The undercut has been around for years, but it undergoes so many changes and variations that it continues to be updated and fashionable, even up to this day. It remains a favorite hairstyle by men, young and not so young alike. We completely understand why, because the undercut is truly a stylish, sexy, and flexible haircut to have.

An undercut is easy to spot from a crowd. It’s basically a haircut that’s buzzed off at the sides and back, and then long at the top. This disconnected hairstyle can instantly give you and your hair an edgy and exciting look, or an elegant and sophisticated air. That will depend, of course, on how you’ll be wearing or styling it.

There are many ways that you can wear an undercut. You can style it up or down and it will still look sensational. Here are some of the styles which you can do that will definitely make you look like a real good-looking human being.

Undercut Hairstyle for Men Inspiration # 1

The easiest way you can wear an undercut with not so long hair is to keep the top hair thick and textured. Get the hair to look tall and spiky, just like the hair on Justin Bieber here.

The sides and the back will be buzzed off, so all the styling will be focused on the top hair. It’s very easy to achieve, and you only need pomade or hairstyling wax to pull the look off.

Just apply the styling product all over your hair, and then start styling it with your fingers. Yes, you don’t even have to use a brush or a comb for this. Just make the hair tall and a little messy, and the spikes nicely distributed so that they’re the first things people see. If you want the style to remain in place, you can apply a little hairspray, too.

This next hairstyle is a huge favorite. Men just love wearing an undercut with a long slick back hairstyle. It’s such a dramatic and fashionable hairstyle that’s even easier and quicker to style.

To do this kind of hair, you must first get the undercut. Make the fade as high as you want to go, but make sure that the top hair is thick and long. Once you have the undercut managed, it’s time to start doing the slick back.

If you have fine hair, only use a little pomade, because you want to keep the shine and the hold to a minimum. If you have thicker hair, you can use more to keep the style in place. Once you have applied the pomade on the hair, just style the hair with a comb (you can use a fine-toothed comb if you want the top hair to slicker and smoother). That’s it!

Guys with wavy or curly hair are huge fans of the undercut. It’s a stylish and easy way to manage the curls or the waves. The hair doesn’t end up looking frizzy and wild, thanks to the buzzed sides and back.

You can easily recreate this undercut with a combover on your own wavy hair. If you prefer a shiny or glossy finish, you can apply pomade or hairstyling wax. If you want a more natural-looking dry matte finish, you can use some hair clay. Just apply the styling product of your choice all over your top hair, and then comb it all the way to the back. We told you it’s that easy.
