The mullet, ponytail and the bowl-cut have one thing in common, they are all bad hairstyles and you should try to avoid at all costs. So the question arises, what should you do with your hair without looking like a horror story?

Well, here are 5 haircuts that have stayed with us for a long time and I don’t see these dying any time soon.

1The Side Sweep

Male hair cuts

Born in the ’50s when looking smart and presentable was all that mattered, when looking shabby would not be something many would try. Therefore, a side sweep of the hair was thought to be something you would look presentable in and would not require much post maintenance.

What to ask from the barber

Simply a scissor haircut, with texture. Not too short on the back and the sides resting just above the years. It doesn’t require maintenance, at all.

How to style it

Blow your hair until they are damp, apply some gel and use your fingers to get the desired texture.

Whom will this suit

This will suit those with those thick or curly hair. Definitely not for those with straight hair which look good with neat styles.

2The Long Cut

Low maintenance again, covers most of the head and you also don’t need a lot of tips as they just keep growing and settle themselves.

What to ask from the barber

Scissors cut, soft and textured and heavy on top. Try keeping it longer on the front and shorter on the crown for the best results.

How to style it

Blow your hair until they are damp, apply some paste and use your fingers to get the hold right. You can finish it with a hair spray for the final touches..

Whom will this suit

If you got wavy or curly hair, this one is for you.

3The Crop

Works really well for those who don’t like spending too much time on their hair. Works perfectly while on-duty and will do the job when you’re off duty if you decide to mess it up.

What to ask from the barber

The crop is a complete scissor-cut, keep it tight on the sides and close to the front. Texture on top

How to style it

Use clay to enhance the texture. Do not use a blow dryer here. Your hands are sufficient for this elegant piece.

Whom will this suit

If you want to create thickness or if you want to remove weight from your already short hair, this one’s for you.

4Slick Back Hairstyle

Slick Back HairstyleWorking best with medium and long hair, it’s great to have a look which goes with almost anything. Be it casual or formal attire, the slick back works with them all, giving a very sophisticated look. You would however be needing a few products to not only give you that shining finish but also while you ask your barber to set them.

What to ask from the barber

The cut would have to be tidy, neat around the back and the length will have to be even on top.

How to style it

Wash your hair properly and brush them backwards. Blow your hair dry backwards, while you brush them. Use the wax in your hand and apply evenly through your hair. Apply them neatly on the sides and the back.

Whom will this suit

Works best for those with fine hair as you won’t have to use much products to get the desired look. If you got curly hair, you will have to use a lot of wax or such hair products to get the look which isn’t ideal.

5The Buzz Cut

Very very low maintenance, but the cut requires occasional visits to the barber to maintain the sharpness. Failing to get the sharpness, the cut will not look as good as it is.

What to ask from the barber

You will need electric clippers to get this one right. You might ask the barber to for level one all over or ask for a fade on the sides and the back.

How to style it

Nothing much to do for styling although you might need to oil it occasionally to condition it.

Whom will this suit

If you got thin hair, you are ready for this cut. A small stubble won’t do any harm either.
