From classic styles to cutting-edge trends, the most current men’s haircuts for 2022 come in all shapes and sizes. But just one of these fantastic new looks can up your game. Quiff hairstyles, textured crop haircuts, classic men’s haircuts, and textured haircuts are all on-point this year.

The secret to feeling fresh, confident, and ready to take on the world is to have a great men’s hairstyle. Make sure your new appearance is a cut above the rest with the latest hair trends for men.

Here are 10 current men’s hair trends to try out this year.


Current Men’s Hair Trends

  • High and Tight

You can’t go wrong with a high and tight haircut if you want a macho look with minimal effort. As a result, it’s no surprise that this style is extremely popular among men as a current men’s hair trend.

What’s remarkable, however, is how many versions of this classic haircut are now available. So, if you’re searching for a fresh new look, you can be confident that there’s an option to fit your taste.

For a more edgy look, some men will request that their barber not fade their hair, instead opting for an undercut or shaved sides. You can even get a low and tight, a short haircut with a low taper fade if you want the gentleman’s version.

This low-maintenance men’s haircut complements most facial shapes and has been used by superstars such as David Beckham and Brad Pitt.

Certain face shapes will benefit from the high and tight. It just leaves a little amount of hair on top of the head, emphasising your face form as the focal point of your head. As a result, the high and tight looks great on square, oval, triangular, and diamond-shaped faces.

  • Crew Cut

The crew cut is one of the most popular 2022 hairstyles for guys, since it is both classy and stylish. It’s a sophisticated and flexible look with short hair on top and tapered sides.

For a modern look, some men choose a high fade with a crew cut, while others prefer a crew cut taper for an elegant finish.

The crew cut is a versatile haircut that can be worn with any face shape. It can be styled neatly to the side or messy and textured for a more natural look. Whether you use pomade, wax, or clay as a styling tool depends on how you want to style your crew cut hair.

Talk to your barber, and you could ask for a short, medium, or long crew cut. You can also specify the fade kind. This can be as simple as a taper fade with scissors to as complex as a skin fade with clippers.

  • Shape-Ups

To begin, what exactly is a shape-up? A line-up or edge-up is the same thing. Whatever you call it, this is a defined hairline rather than a natural one. A straight line across the forehead that bends down to the temples is the shape up. When viewed from the front, the hairline seems straight, but when viewed from the side, it appears curved.

There are various forms of shape-ups, but your hairline is more important than your own preference. The best line-ups will create a precise line that is as close as possible to your natural hairline.

Taking a shape up high, on the other hand, might be a stylish choice. There’s a difference between making it look like a receding hairline and creating a new look.

  • Mullet

The mullet is a current men’s hairstyle that has been making a resurgence in recent years when it comes to popular haircut styles. The mullet looks well on thick, straight, wavy, and curly hair and may elevate your style to the next level for a sleek and contemporary appearance.

There are several stylish mullet haircuts to consider, whether you prefer a classic or trendy look. For a low-maintenance look, some men prefer a mullet fade with short hair, while others prefer a longer mullet with tapered sides for a stylish look. The mohawk mullet has become a new 2022 hair trend if you’re looking for a more edgy variant.

Some say that this retro look looks great on people with longer faces since the hair will have more room to expand and cluster.

  • Fauxhawk

The faux hawk has quickly grown in popularity among current men’s fade haircuts. The reason for this could be that, like the mohawk, the faux hawk hairstyle is current and edgy, but it’s still appropriate for a formal or professional office situation.

The faux hawk is a terrific haircut option for guys because it is less intense than a mohawk but just as fashionable and cool. 

The aesthetic is youthful and eye-catching, yet not to the point of becoming showy. So, if you’re looking for a style that allows you to go punk on the weekends while remaining professional during the week, a fauxhawk is the way to go.

The popular 2022 hair trend is simple to style and maintain, and it can be tailored to fit casual, formal, or extremely edgy tastes without losing its distinctive appeal.

  • Textured Crop

Textured crop hairstyles, also known as a French crop, are a classic look that never goes out of style and this is no truer now as a current men’s hair trend. Cropped hair for men is simple, trendy, and flattering on all face shapes.

On the sides, guys can select between a fade and an undercut, and top it off with a short or long textured crop. Plus, styling the crop top fade is simple: apply a matte product to create a textured, natural-looking crop.

Wondering what to ask for at the barbershop? Tell the barber to cut or clip your sides, depending on the texture you want. You can also get an undercut or a fade haircut. You can even combine the two if you can’t pick between them.

  • Comb-Over

Among brokers and salesmen, the comb-over has long been a popular hairdo. Yet the comb over has been revitalised and reinterpreted for a 2022 hairstyle thanks to stars like John Hamm, Justin Timberlake, and George Clooney.

A comb-over haircut is one in which the hair is brushed from one side of the head to the other. It’s a modern and versatile hairstyle that flatters practically any facial shape.

You can also experiment with your comb-over’s back and sides, opting for everything from an undercut or fade to a hard part or a complete shave.

However, with so many various comb-over hairstyles to choose from, finding the right one for your hair type, facial shape, and hair length can be difficult. 

Suggest that the barber part your hair on the side you choose, leaving at least a couple of inches on top. Then you can decide how you want the back and sides to be cut. A fade, taper, or short scissor cut are all good options.

  • Quiff

For decades, the quiff has been one of the most influential and long-lasting hairstyles running into current men’s hair trends. It’s one of the most traditional and timeless looks available.

The quiff is a men’s hairstyle that follows the “short on the sides, long on top” trend. It’s usually fashioned with a messy brushed back or combed over texture and finished with some height and volume.

The quiff, like other thick, voluminous hairstyles is notable for its high contrast design. The quiff’s unkempt, wavy, and slanted appearance, on the other hand, is what sets it apart.

To obtain a cool style, guys with straight, thick, curly, or even wavy hair can try several variations of the haircut. There are several ways to achieve a quiff haircut, from a taper fade on the back and sides to a messy hairdo on top.

Ask your barber for a shorter back and sides with a longer top. You can choose between a fade for a more current look or a taper cut for a more traditional look.

  • Broccoli Haircut

The Broccoli Haircut is a latest men’s hairstyle which involves shaving the sides of the head into a fade while leaving the hair on the top of their head long and messy.

The hair on the top is also cut shorter in the back and longer in the front, with enough in the front to reach over the eyebrows. The hair is then flared upwards in the front. However, to keep it bouncy and natural-looking, it’s normally done with little hair product.

Due to the rise of TikTok and e-boy culture, it has recently evolved. If you’re thinking about switching up your style, try the broccoli haircut while it’s still hot as a 2022 hair trend.

  • Undercut

The undercut is unquestionably one of the most popular hairstyles right now and one of 2022’s hair trends. It is youthful and versatile, which means it will look great on curly, straight, or wavy hair.

An undercut hairstyle is any cut that leaves length on top while cropping, fading, or buzzing the back and/or sides totally.

The structure of your face will influence any styling choice north of the neck, whether it’s glasses or facial hair. The same can be said for your hair, which should be styled to balance out your most noticeable features.

Guys with round faces should strive to add a few inches to their face with a style like an undercut pompadour or a quiff with tightly clipped sides.
