Have you considered having shorter sides? That would make your hairstyle so much neater. In fact, shaved sides are the most popular of all men’s hairstyles in 2017.  There are so many cuts and shaves styles that are based on that, from man buns to buzz cuts.

Indeed, cuts with shaved sides are hugely popular in all barber shops across North America and Europe. They are the latest fad right now; there is something very sexy about this new hairstyle, which makes you stand apart in a crowd of people.

So if you are looking for inspiration, do read on for the top cuts and shaves styles of 2017.

#1: Short Length with Tapered Sides

This is a very masculine cut, very neat, similar to an old-fashioned buzz cut in a lot of ways. It looks very good with a beard. The tapered short sides accentuate the facial hair and give you a very manly look. This is a great option for men in their mid-thirties, who are aging gracefully with hair that is just starting to gray. You don’t need to do much to maintain this haircut; even messy hair can look great with this.

#2: High and Tight

This is a really rugged cut with a very short top and shorter sides. This hairstyle is inspired by the crew cut worn by US marines and since the military is the flavor of the season; this is just the right cut for 2017. There is an abrupt transition in length from the sides to the top of the hair, which is interesting. This gives you a masculine, well-defined look.

#3: Classic Undercut

The classic undercut has always been a hugely popular cut at barbershops across the country. It remains a hit even in 2017 and is not as extreme as some of the other looks listed here. It is a simple, straightforward cut, which is great for all purposes – works just as great in an office meeting as it does at a party. You don’t need to apply much product for this hairstyle, but you might consider using gels that come with a matte finish.

#4: Slicked Back with Shaved Sides

Slicked back hairstyles have always been popular with men; it’s the look of a serious man, a doer, someone who knows how to get the job done. The shaved sides indicate that you like to have fun as well. You will need to maintain more length on top for this cut. You will need to go for a relatively short length for this and visit the barber once every two or three weeks for this hairstyle to work. A wet look goes very well with this hairstyle, apply pomade or gel liberally to the hair every day after a shower.

#5: Crew Cut

The crew cut is a simple but elegant option for guys who want to look stylish, while being conservative at the same time. There are different types of crew cuts, but basically it is a short cut with a little more length at the front that tapers down to the shaved sides. You don’t need to work hard to maintain the crew cut, but you might want to apply holding gel to go for a wet look with this.
