Charles IferganInspiration, Styling

There is so much content circulating for women about how to cut and style their hair to look beautiful and keep up with the trends, but often resources for men about what is fashionable and trendy are lacking. You’ve come to the right place if you are a man searching for a style to suit you. We have compiled a list of seven of the best haircuts and hairstyles for men in 2023 to help you decide what style will look amazing on you this summer! If you like any of these styles, visit us at our Chicago hair salon!

Flowy Fringe
We’ll start this list off with one of the most popular styles for men in 2023. Appropriately nicknamed “The Tiktok Haircut,” this haircut is especially popular with Gen Z. Characterized by tousled, fluffy-looking hair, this style is easily achieved by those with short to medium-length locks. This style can be either long or short at the back and sides of the head, but the defining factor of this look is the almost messy look of the full fringe across the forehead.

Faded Side with Natural Top
This style can work well with any hair texture but looks especially great on men with wavy, curly, or textured hair. Cut the sides to a very short fade, and leave the top long and natural. This style is fantastic for men with medium to long-length hair, but the effect can be achieved with short hair as well. This style is fashionable, and on-trend, and will be perfect for showcasing your curls.

Ultra Bleached
Bleached hair is one of the most popular hair dyeing trends of the 2020s. Made popular by celebrities like Zac Efron, ultra-white platinum blonde hair is one of 2023’s latest hair color trends for men – and for good reason. This hue is eye-catching on any skin tone and hair texture. If you sport facial hair, bleach the beard as well or leave it natural for a stunning contrast.

Curtain Bangs
One of the classic looks of the 90s, curtain bangs, is back with a bang (pun intended!). This has been a hot style in 2023 among the ladies, but it’s making a comeback for men as well. Often called “The Leo,” in reference to Leonardo Dicaprio’s signature style in the 90s, is a great look for most men, especially those looking for a young-looking and easy-maintenance hairstyle.

The French Crop
The French crop is a relatively modern take on the old classic, the Caesar cut. The Caesar cut features short sides and back, and slightly longer hair on the top of the head, with a high-lying blunt fringe across the forehead. The French crop is slightly different, with even shorter, faded sides, and the fringe the same length, or slightly longer than that of the Caesar cut. Even though it is similar to an old classic, this hairstyle is really modern. It works well with nearly every face shape, but is especially slimming for those with a rounder face shape. The French crop requires minimal products and styling and is a great option for men looking to hide a receding hairline.

Mid Length, Natural Texture
The ultimate easy-to-care-for style is just to grow it out and leave it longer and more natural. This style looks amazing on almost everyone! Your hair can be swept back from the face with a hat or secured back in a ponytail or bun, but it really shines when it is left just to do its thing. If you choose this style, make sure to have your hair trimmed regularly for optimal hair health and condition.

The Businessman
The businessman hairstyle exudes class. The hair is cut with a slight fade or taper on the sides, though not super short, and the top is left long enough to part and comb to the side. This style is popular among true businessmen but has also been popping up in Hollywood. This style requires the correct cut, and a hairstyling product such as gel or pomade to keep the hair in place. This haircut looks upscale and sophisticated, yet simple enough to work for any occasion.
