Does it sometimes seem like women have hundreds of haircuts and hairstyles to choose from, while men only have a select few? It may appear that men have gotten the short end of the stick, but you’ve probably just been looking for inspiration in the wrong place. To get the perfect chop, you’ll want to do more than hand your barber a picture of your favorite celeb as an example of what you're looking for. Rather, it’s important to keep ahead of the curve by researching and learning what the latest hairstyle trends are—before everyone else. Ready to pass on cookie-cutter haircuts and opt for a trendy hair style? Instead of flipping through magazines and scrolling through your social media feeds in an effort to figure out the current trends, you can simply ready on for four of the best short haircuts and hairstyles for guys. Trust us: They’ll definitely help you stand out from the pack!

SHORT STYLE #1: THE SUPER-CLOSE BUZZ CUT

Sometimes, you just don’t want to worry about your hair in the morning. If you 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.

SHORT STYLE #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 and 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.

To style your pompadour, enhance the look by applying a pomade or gel, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel. Rub your desired amount of product 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. If you’d prefer to give this hairstyle a modern twist, create a side-part pompadour by applying pomade to your hair before parting it to the side.

SHORT STYLE #3: THE UNDERCUT

For men, the hottest haircut of the year 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 and buzzing the sides and back super short. This haircut is perfect for those who want a clean, buzzed look but still want to have a bit of length on 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.

SHORT STYLE #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. To really sell the look, bleach the top of your hair for a totally 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 EverPure Moisture Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner.
