The buzzcut is an interesting topic because it’s not as easy as it would seem. Keep in mind that there are a lot of different styles that have short hair with no exposure, but there is still the question of which haircut suits your hair and face. The cool thing about the ultra-short cuts is that we have your number, no matter what your style.

Buzz cuts have been getting more popular among men for the past few years. There’s no wrong or right style and it all depends on what you want. Start by figuring out what exactly you’re looking for, then go for your right buzz cut style.

1. Buzz Haircut Fade

Military men used to shave their heads if they were of a certain age, but now the buzz-cut fade is quickly becoming popular for a variety of audiences. 

To get this style, which is the most common type of military cut, the back and sides of your head are shaved down with a little hair on top. For more variety in your haircut, ask your barber to do a high fade; it starts higher up on the neck than usual and has less hair around it.

2. Elongated Buzz Haircut

If you’re not ready to commit to a buzz cut, the best first choice is a long buzz cut. The length of hair on top and the length of hair on the sides can be determined by using different clipper sizes too. If you’re looking for a new way to style your tresses, this is the perfect tutorial!

3. Buzz Cut Paired With Beards

Buzzed haircuts with beards have a sort of perfect balance. In order to maintain that, you need to make sure your beard stays the same length and looks nicely groomed. The Justin Timberlake haircut is simple yet effective if you want to achieve that ‘I just got out of bed and look this good’ look. Get a buzz cut and beard that are similarly trimmed.

4. Military Buzz Haircut

One of the most iconic hairstyles, the buzz cut is the go-to at work when it comes to shortcuts that don’t need a razor. Considering its military background, this haircut gives you a real treat – no need for any more fighting when your hair is done.

5. Military Faded Cut

For the perfect military buzz cut, cut items back as you reach the crown and never use more than two (clipper blade sizes) on top. Keep your military buzz fade looking its best by always maintaining a consistent length of hair.

6. Coloured Buzz Haircut

Buzz cut haircuts are getting a lot of attention these days, with celebs like Joe Jonas and Eminem rocking them. No care required and a style to match – who says you can’t look good without ‘doing anything? It’s the perfect haircut for men that want to take it easy.

7. Long Buzz Cut

A successful grown-out buzzcut usually comes down to the right proportion of top and sides. The time it will take will vary on how fast your hair grows, but at most will be 12-16 weeks before you start to see a full buzzcut again.

8. Buzz Cut On Thick Hair

This trendy hairstyle is perfect for men with thick hair who are looking for a low-maintenance ‘do. The cut’s masculine and accentuates the jawline, so it’s a great choice if you want something modern & stylish while still wanting to maintain your masculinity!

9. Buzz Haircut On Thinning Hair

Losing hair is tough and it can be hard to come to terms with. But you don’t have to suffer, instead of letting the hair grow out and cover any balding, just get a buzzcut on a 2 or 3-blade razor. It’ll make your thinning hair less noticeable.

10. Medium Fade Buzz Haircut

Buzz cuts with a low fade start right below the ears and just above the neck. Mid fades start an inch or two higher and gradually taper off to the bottom of your ears- it’s a dramatic, yet clean finish that suits all face shapes.

11. Buzz Cut For Men With Receding Hairline

A receding hairline should not be a reason for you to feel embarrassed. Superstars like Chris Evans are able to make it work with their hairstyles. Buzz cuts can help draw less attention to the receding hair and create a soft contrast between forehead and hairline. Do you know when you feel like you look your best? When you shave off all the hair from your head!
