2015's HOTTEST HAIRSTYLE: THE UNDERCUT
Cutting edge style for the modern man.

The classic undercut, which first became popular between the mid 1920s and through the 40s, is back. Big time. If you’re unfamiliar, the undercut is a versatile cut that leaves it long-ish up top while the sides and back are cut short. Whether a clean-cut professional type or a surly biker, this easy to maintain style can be worn a number of ways and works well to show-off facial features and bone structure.

SEEK HELP

While it looks like an easy cut to achieve, we’d recommend leaving the task to a pro, and with the renaissance currently happening in barbering, you shouldn’t have a hard time finding someone who can produce a proper undercut. And be sure to bring a reference of the exact style you’re looking to achieve, as there are a few variations, and it’s the easiest way to ensure that you leave the chair happy. You should get trimmed up every 2 to 4 weeks depending on how quickly your hair grows, as the short sides featured in this style tend to require frequent trims to keep it tight.

STYLE FOR MILES

One of the reasons we love the undercut so much is the ease in styling. For our money, slicked back is the way to go, but definitely experiment with different products and styling in different directions to achieve a variety of textures and looks (Hint: try MEN Styling Creme!). If you like to try the classic slicked back look, use a blow dryer and blow your hair towards the back of your head until it is about 80% dry before adding product and finally combing straight back. Boom, sexy.
