Doesn’t it seem like women have hundreds of haircuts and styles to choose from while men only have a select few? While it may seem like men have gotten the short end of the stick, you’ve probably just been looking for inspiration in the wrong place. Nowadays, men spend a lot of time and effort into putting together the right outfit and the same holds true for their hair. It’s not just about handing your barber a picture of a celeb as inspiration. It’s about keeping ahead of the curve and knowing what hairstyles are trending before everyone else does. So, stay away from cookie-cutter haircuts and choose one of the hairstyles below instead. Trust us: They’ll definitely help you stand out from the pack! Up your hair game with four of the best short haircuts and hairstyles for men.

1. The Super-Close Buzz Cut

Sometimes, you just don’t want to worry about your hair in the morning. If you just want to wake up, throw on your clothes, and head out the door, go for a super-close buzz cut. This haircut has been around for years, so it’s no wonder it’s a favorite among A-listers. The best part of a super-close buzz cut? You don’t need to use any products to maintain this hairstyle. It’s the epitome of a low maintenance look.

2. The Classic Pompadour

For old-school charm that’s still very much on trend, try the pompadour. Pompadours, a.k.a. quiffs as they’re known in England, have been around for years now. And it doesn’t seem like the trend is dying down anytime soon. This hairstyle instantly takes you back to an era of muscle cars, hot rods, and old-school rock ‘n roll bands. If you want a hairstyle that has a little bit of the old and a little bit of the new, give this haircut a try. When styling a pompadour, enhance your look by applying some pomade or gel, like the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Mega Gel. To use, rub your desired amount of gel in your hands. Then, apply the gel evenly throughout damp or dry hair and style. If you want a slicked back look, apply the gel to wet hair and comb it from front to back. Want to give this hairstyle a modern twist? Opt for a side-part pompadour. Apply pomade to your hair and part it to the side. Style it by brushing the gel or pomade back from your forehead. You can create height by blow-drying your hair back and up from the roots to tips.

3. The Undercut

The hottest haircut of the year for men has to be the undercut. This haircut is a short to medium length hairstyle, where the top of your hair contrasts with the sides. Get the look by leaving your hair long on the top while buzzing the sides and back short. The whole point of this hairstyle is to create a distinction between the top and the sides. This haircut is perfect for those who want a clean, buzzed look but still want a bit of length on the top. All you need to style this haircut is a touch of putty. Take a dime-sized amount of the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty and rub it between your palms. Work the putty through the top of your hair and shape. You can build volume and add fullness by starting at your roots and then lifting your hair up and out.

4. The Surfer Undercut

Not feeling the super-short undercut? Keep your length longer on the top with what we like to call the surfer undercut. Get this look by bleaching the top of your hair to really get that surfer dude vibe. Since this look requires bleaching, it’s important to take care of your color by using a color-safe shampoo and conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Intensive Conditioner
