Short hair can be tricky to style, but with the right knowledge and technique, you’ll have your hair looking barbershop quality in no time. With so many men’s short hairstyles out there, you must know how to style them and what products to use for the best outcome.

Don’t worry, gents; I’m here to help with that. In today’s article, I’ll be covering:

  1. Which Hairstyles Are Best For Short Hair?
  2. The Best Hair Styling Products To Use On Short Hair
  3. How Do You Maintain Your Short Hairstyle?

#1 Which Hairstyles Are Best For Short Hair?

Before we can even begin to talk about how to style your short hair, it’s essential to know a few different cuts that determine how you’ll be styling it.

There is no shortage of good haircuts for guys. However, these 4 options stand out as the most popular when it comes to men’s short hairstyles.

In order from longest length to shortest:

Ivy League

Known for its preppy background, the Ivy League haircut has become one of the most iconic men’s short hairstyles.

With a length typically no more than 2 inches on top and shorter on the sides, this is a staple for men who want a classic and timeless haircut.

This is a perfect hairstyle for men of all face shapes and offers a classic look that won’t disappoint.

How to style this cut:

  1. Use clay or putty for texture and hold.
  2. For a smarter look, use a comb to help style, or use your fingers to keep it casual.
  3. Maintain it every few weeks, as it is a ‘longer’ short cut; you don’t have to maintain it as often.

Crew Cut

classic-crew-cut

Inspired by 1950s Military heritage, the crew cut is one of the most infamous hairstyles for guys with short hair.

It comes in shorter than the Ivy League and typically offers shorter length on the sides and back. With its short nature, this is a low-maintenance hairstyle you’ll love.

This type of cut is excellent for men with various shape sizes and offers a versatile style that goes with any outfit.

How to style this cut:

  1. Use clay or texture powder for hold.
  2. Men with thicker hair may not need any product for a casual look.
  3. Due to its shorter nature, it will need to be maintained more often, every 1-2 weeks, most likely.

High And Tight

high-and-tight

The high and tight haircut is a moderate-maintenance hairstyle in that it doesn’t need to be styled much, depending on the top length.

It features high-clipped sides and back, with varying lengths on top. This top length determines how much or how little you will have to style it.

High and tights are known for their military-inspired look and don’t have much of a blend at the top. You can choose how long the top is, but too long, and you’ll enter the territory of a disconnected style haircut.

How to style this cut:

  1. If the length is longer on top, use clay or putty for hold.
  2. Most men can rock this style product free.
  3. It does require frequent maintenance to keep its length, depending on severity.

Buzz Cut

Lastly, we find the most straightforward men’s short hairstyle to maintain—the buzz cut.

The buzz cut has military heritage but is commonly known as the most manageable haircut to maintain as a guy. Its ruggedness also gives it a spot on the list of hairstyles that women love.

This hairstyle is a simple, one-length cut across the entire head and offers versatility and simplicity. It does not require any products to style or maintain, and it goes well with most face shapes.

How to style this cut:

  1. You don’t need any products to style this haircut
  2. If you prefer a longer buzz, you may find a texture powder helps take away any greasy look.
  3. Due to its simplicity, a buzz cut can be touched up weekly or not for several weeks, depending on preference.

#2 The Best Hair Styling Products To Use On Short Hair

hair-care-products

There are only a few products you’ll need in your medicine cabinet when it comes to men’s short hairstyles.

Most hair products are designed around the concepts of volume and hold.

The volume is the overall size and texture of your hair. While the hold is the strength at which the hair products keep your hair in place.

With these two things in mind, there are really only a handful of products you’ll need with short hair:

Clay and Putty

For great hold, try VITAMAN’s Matt Mud. A clay-based hair styling product guaranteed to get the job done

Hair clay and putty are combined because they both do the same thing: give your hair texture and hold without the slick look of hair gel or pomade.

Hair putty has an extremely strong hold with little to no shine making it the product of choice for adding texture and hold without the mess.

Clay, on the other hand, will give you texture but at the cost of hold, making it a well-rounded option for men who want something quick and easy.

The best rule of thumb with these products is to use the putty if you want something that lasts all day and opt for clay when you need something fast and short-term.

Gel/Pomade

VITAMAN’s Hair Styling Gel is a great, all-natural option for guys who want to style their short hair to perfection

Hair gel or pomade are great options for men who want the most hold out of a hair styling product.

The biggest drawback is that they both tend to have a high shine.

You only really want to break these out if you’re going to rock the slicked-back look or wish to opt for a shinier quiff-like appearance.

Gel and pomade are an excellent option for men with an ivy league or crew cut style looking for a smarter appearance. This can be enhanced by applying it with a comb for a truly polished look.

Texture Powder

hair-powder

Texture powders are a fantastic addition to your hair-styling regime as they offer excellent volume and hold like clay and putty, yet your hair remains softer and more malleable.

This means that, unlike its stronghold counterparts, clay and putty, texture powder allows you the freedom to move your hair around and restyle without being locked into place like the other products do.

These powders also do a great job at removing any greasy residue, leaving you with a polished yet shine-free hairstyle.

#3 How Do You Maintain Your Short Hairstyle?

mens-hair

The best part about rocking short hair as a guy is that you don’t have to do much to it daily to make it look stylish.

Yes, you may be in and out of the barber more frequently, depending on the severity of your cut or fade.

But at the end of the day, you won’t be worrying too much about styling products, extra time needed to style it, or the dreaded bed head the same as you would if it were longer.

Short hair maintenance is often just more trips to the barber to keep the length as short as needed.

Other than that, most men’s short hairstyles are easy to maintain and perfect if you want something low maintenance and stylish.

There you have it, gents. No longer will you need to worry about how to style your short hair.

You have all the tools necessary to rock that short hair as stylishly as possible. If you’re interested in more hair care tips, check out this article I wrote about the most attractive hairstyles that women love.

No-Fail Color Combos For Men: Summer 2024 Edition

One of the trickier elements of achieving good style is color theory. That is, what looks good together, what matches, what contrasts well, the works!

When men initially start their style journey, before they learn about the context and history of various aesthetics, they’ll often try tackling color first.

And for good reason. Not matching correctly or poor color choices are a quick and easy way to doom your outfit. Getting it right takes a trained eye – or a handy guide like this one.

Specifically in the summer months, there tend to be more color options available to men’s clothing than ever. Less layers means our outfits are sometimes encouraged to make a statement through different means, whether that’s through pattern, texture, or perhaps most obviously, color!

And so, without further ado, here are our recommendations for no-fail color combinations for men’s outfits this summer.

White, Red, and Navy Blue

Perhaps a bit on-the-nose for the Fourth of July season, but arguably all the more so appropriate because of it, there’s something nostalgic about loosely representing the American flag during the summer – albeit tastefully.

One sure way to nail this formula without mistakenly getting raised along the flag pole is to combine a classic white tee with navy blue pants, shorts, or denim, along with a primary or dark red cardigan for cool summer evenings.

Too warm for the cardigan? Consider a blue and red patterned top with white shorts or white linen trousers for a similar effect with more cooling factor.

It’s a brilliant combo with just a dash of patriotic flair. Trust us!

Off-White, Tan, and Forest Green

Sometimes, deep contrast is what you want for maximum dynamism in an outfit. To experiment with this color combination, try pairing a pair of off-white painter/carpenter pants with a dark, forest green top (either a tee or a camp collar shirt). Tie it all together with a pair of tan loafers and a matching tan braided belt!

Looking to go cooler? Perhaps opt for a pair of forest green shorts and an off-white tee. Finish it off with a sleek pair of tan espadrilles or elegant fisherman’s sandals, and you’re ready to hit the sun!

Classic Black and White

Minimalism can be elegant, and there’s no better proof than the classic black and white combo.

This generally works best for slightly elevated outfits, ranging from smart casual to business casual. Try starting with a pair of white pleated trousers, preferably in a breathable fabric like cotton, or even better, linen. Pair them with a black knit polo, tucked in ideally, and accessorize with a black leather belt and matching loafers.

A more elegant way to spin this combo is with a white linen suit – paired with a simple black tee shirt. If you’re feeling a bit of retro flair in your veins, dare to swap the tee for a black shirt with a 70s-inspired, jumbo collar worn popped over the jacket’s lapels. You can totally pull it off with confidence – we promise.

Autumnal Orange and Sage Green

Are you an autumnal soul? As in, someone who wishes it was fall during all three other seasons? We don’t blame you! Autumn color palettes are some of the most visually pleasing and downright cozy.

The good news is, you don’t have to wait until fall to incorporate autumnal earth tones into your summer wardrobe! It’s not like it’s illegal. If anything, it’s a fun nod to another season when worn properly.

A burnt or rust orange definitely screams fall, but when utilized on a classic camp collar shirt and paired with a more summery sage green (either in short or linen trouser iterations), it surprisingly works!

Soft Pink and Deep Blue

When worn well, pink can be a surprisingly masculine color that echoes elegance and signals sophistication.

An easy way to see this for yourself is by pairing deep blue trousers (try seersucker or linen for ideal weather friendly comfort) with a soft pink linen shirt – either long sleeve or short. You can also swap the pants for shorts if that’s more your thing.

The rich contrast between pink and blue tones is especially exciting in summer, where both colors reign highly.

White on White on White (or Maybe Tan)

No, no, we’re not kidding around with this one. If you’re lacking in the hair department, you might choose to avoid this combo in order to beat the “Mr. Clean” allegations, but when done well, we still think this look is a power-move.

The key is to incorporate summer texture. White pants or shorts in either linen or seersucker, combined with a white top in a similar fabric. Linen on linen works wonders. Seersucker on linen is great, too. Seersucker on seersucker tends to work best with a suit, but use your discretion.

Finish it off with either white sneakers (canvas ones are great) or a daring white loafer. Alternatively, if you want to break up the white just a drop, consider opting for tan shoes with a matching belt. In many ways, it’s arguably more elegant.

Tan and Teal

Tan is a canvas upon which everything will match, which is why going bold and exciting with a contrasting shade is a good bet. Teal is a fine choice because it’s reminiscent of mediterranean oceans and mosaic tiles, further reinforcing the summery association.

The safest way to approach this look is with tan chinos or shorts combined with a rich teal top (either a tee, linen shirt, or camp collar shirt). Tan or brown accessories will seal the deal, but an alternative method is to reverse the colors on their head.

Teal shorts are quite striking but within the bounds of good taste, and a tan linen shirt looks absolutely stellar with them. Try it for yourself!

Beige, Chocolate Brown, and Sage Green

Looking for something similar to the previous option but one that works a bit better in more professional settings? Beige trousers, paired with chocolate brown loafers and a matching belt, look great with sage green, a calmer alternative to teal.

Sometimes referred to as seafoam green, sage looks especially elegant when represented by a linen fabric.

Calm Gray and Black

Don’t underestimate the versatility of gray in your summer wardrobe. In truth, it can go with almost anything, but looks sleekest when paired with black.

Not convinced? Try combining a pair of gray linen pants with a black knit polo for that after work rooftop party, or gray shorts with a black tee for a sleek and minimal laid-back day. From fine summer tailoring to relaxed and leisurely attire, this combo is something of a cheat code, if you ask us.

Maroon and Mint

We’re not done with shades of red! Maroon is often seen as one of the more mature shades, but you can make it feel a bit more playful if you pair it next to an airy mint color tone.

A pair of mint green (fainter than sage, in most cases) pants or shorts delivers extra wow-factor when placed alongside a maroon red top. From tees to polos to linen button downs, you’ve got options. But you can reverse the positions too! Try maroon shorts with a mint tee on toasty days for a look that’ll keep you cool and looking, well, cooler!

Lastly, Experiment!

Aside from these specific seasonal recommendations, allow yourself to have fun and experiment with different color and color combinations on your own! It takes time and experience to gain a truly trained eye, and while learning the basics of color theory can help, your personal style journey will thank you for any hands-on experience!.

So go out there, and give some of these a whirl. When you’re ready, feel free to try new ideas out for yourself!
