7 CLASSIC HAIRSTYLES THAT DID NOT FADE WITH TIME
Retro styles are making a comeback because they look as good today as they did in the past. French crop, buzz cut, slick back etc are some of the hairstyles that have remained evergreen till today.
The Buzz Cut
The buzz cut is a timeless style. But keep in mind that your face has to suit it. Buzz cuts are given by electric clippers, and are used to “buzz” the top of your hair to one length. The buzz cut haircut can also extend to the sides or be combined with a low, mid or high fade. The result is the buzz cut fade, the most popular version of this very short hairstyle. Ultimately, even with different buzz cut lengths, the key is to just think of really short hair.
The slick back
As one of the oldest hairstyles around, it’s fair to say that the slick back look has changed throughout the years. The amount of choice is endless when it comes to this traditional style. A glossy undercut is probably the most classic and formal style you can go for. However, if you want to add a modern twist to your hair then why not try a fade, or grow your hair out and have a longer look.
The side parting
As an alternative to slick back, this particular hairstyle has remained trendy for decades and still has not lost its appeal.
As the basis of the haircut is a simple short back and sides, the style is pretty versatile and will suit most hair types and face shapes. That said, this can run the risk of looking like a comb-over if the hair is too long and thin on top.
As its name implies, the side part haircut relies on a side part. But there’s more to it than that. The top and sides are cut in a traditional fashion to give the side part haircut its all-around timeless look. The result is a short, neat style.
The quiff is an iconic style that suits a wide range of ages, face shapes and personal styles. Like the pompadour, though, the quiff isn’t best suited to those with receding hairlines as it exposes the forehead.
Another benefit that the quiff hairstyle gives you: While the quiff is widely seen in the men’s fashion world, you probably don’t see too many quiffs in your everyday life. That’s because it’s more of a fashion style and less of a casual style. So you can be the standout guy if you decide to stick to the quiff.
The Shoulder Length Cut
Classic and refined, this style has featured in fashion for years, likely because it is versatile enough to be adapted to several situations. By keeping your hair longer and having your barber or stylist add in some layers, you can switch between a beach-ready textured look and a Gordon Gecko boardroom do.
Probably the toughest part of achieving this style is growing your hair. There will always be a day when you can’t stand it and want to cut it all off, but before making any rash decisions try setting a goal length and make a decision once your hair has grown to that length on whether or not you want to stick with it.
The Textured Cut With Fringe
Firstly, you’re going to need a good bit of length in your hair for this particular haircut. Also keep in mind that this style works best with thick rather than fine hair. Guys with double crowns should definitely consider a textured look, as it’s a style that lets your hair like the way it wants to.
