Another cool way to wear the crop haircut is up in thick spikes.
3. The Sweep Back
Somewhere in between a pompadour and slicked back hair, this easy to style haircut that looks great. Try blow drying hair while combing it back to train hair into place and get the look with a dab of product.
4. Side Part Haircut
Modern updates on classic haircuts are on trend style and look good. This side part haircut is styled up into a quiff at the front, combining two types of men’s haircuts into one fresh style. Just work pomade through damp, almost dry hair, comb it over to one side, and work it up at the front with fingers.
5. Short Spiky Haircut
Finer spikes work better for finer hair. This short haircut with a fade can also be styled into an Ivy League, just add a side part.
6. Comb Over Fade
Here’s another take on the side part haircut with a defined hard part and blurry mid fade.
The quiff is similar to the previous look but hair is styled up instead of up and back. It works for short hair as well as these medium length locks.
8. Messy Hair
Jeremy Wexler Hair
This cool and easy hairstyle shows how a good haircut makes styling a breeze. Texture all over lightens up thick hair and looks great with this messy look but can also be worn combed over, up into a quiff, or spikes.
9. Wavy Crop
A heavier version of the crop works really well for guys with wavy and curly hair. Use a little product to keep hair in place and style this cool quiff.
10. Medium Top, Short Sides Haircut
Haircuts with bangs are back on trend and work really well on top of short hair around the sides and back.
11. Tousled Texture
We Married Hair
This cut combines texture, spikes, and the messy look all in cool, effortless style.
12. Side Fringe + Drop Fade
This cool disconnect hairstyle juxtaposes long side fringe with a drop skin fade.
Another way to rock a disconnected hairstyle is with an undercut and hair styled back. Or wear hair down, up in a mohawk, or even a man bun.
14. Pomp Hawk
Javi the Barber
This bold look combines the pompadour with a mohawk. When you don’t want to style hair up, a slick look also works.
15. Medium Length Hairstyles
Longer haircuts are also a cool look for teen boys. This is a lot cooler than the Bieb’s famous mushroom cut. Air dry hair to get this windswept style.
