I’ve spoken about, should you shave your head? Should you grow your hair right? I’ve spoken about longer hairstyles to try. We’ve got loads of ManForHimself.com, but I thought now was the time to talk about the buzz cut.
Now, you’d be excused for thinking the buzz cut was just one style, just shave all off, but actually, there are different styles within this. And if you know these styles, you can then work out the best possible style for you from the super short to the slightly longer and all in between. Now, these styles are in ManForHimself.com in the whole hairstyle directory.
So if you wanna a bit more kind of inspiration, then you can check that out.
The first sort of one here is the buzz cut induction. It’s called induction because when guys joined the military and they had their induction, they would shave their head because that was to get rid of any sort of lice or any fleas or whatever else you might have. But this is a really super popular one.
This is the easiest to, this is just using your clippers and it’s, have it bold. So absolutely no guard on that.
And David Beckham recently, there’s David Beckham is like the Messiah of hairstyles he can pull anything off, but he has just shaved his head again and you can see here, he’s kind of kept it under wraps and social media, but this induction buzz cut is best suited for oval or rectangular face shapes.
That’s because we’re really tryna work out this proportion. So less here on top is gonna help to minimise that length of the face also if you’re thinking, if you’re receding, should get in that M sort of shape up here, then actually just buzzing that all of could be the best option for you.
Okay, taking up a notch and going into the second style. We’ve got Nick Jonas here, spotting the burr buzz cut.
Now, this again is one length all over, but this is more like the one grade. because it’s slightly longer, it will take more maintenance, but you can kind of scale it up slightly just in those sort of half measure increments I mean, Nick Jonas again has a great face.
All these guys literally do but I always think with any sort of haircut, it’s about how you personally pull it off. if you are starting to thin and recede, then actually this might not be the best one for you. You’d be better to go with induction and keep it super short.
Levelling up again, and this is the crew buzz cut. This is the one that I often think of as a sort of like young guys, quite often have this, it’s more youthful, Justin Bieber’s gone for it. He’s had it’s with its natural colour, he’s had it bleached. But this is all about keeping a full fringe. So it’s one length, all over generally a clipper grade two or a three.
And you just gonna keep a little bit of length into that fringe. The top and sides are more blended. So actually it’s slightly more stylized. If you’re a guy that wants to have something that looks like you need a little bit more of an effort then this crew buzz cut could be better for you.
Also, if you have a larger forehead or a sort of long forehead, then that full fringe can also help to sort of work out those measurements and the proportions.
Moving up again into the butch buzz cut. This is more like a clipper grade three or a clipper grade four, but it is that one length all over and Zane is someone that’s done this a lot. Zane like David Beckham is someone that just has like a great face, great style, can pull loads off. But what I personally like about this is, because the hair is slightly longer you get more of that natural movement and texture. So it looks like the hair just has a little bit more to it rather than having it all cut off.
And because it is slightly longer, this is where you can kind of start to use a little bit more hair product again.
So using something maybe like a high shine pomade is gonna give you that high gloss. It’s also gonna keep the hair really close to the head, or you could dry in a little bit of sea salt spray to give it more texture or just take a tiny bit of clay into the hands, warm-up and brush through.
And you’re really gonna start to build that texture in the hair. If you’ve got a slightly more rounded face, I would say to avoid this, because it’s really gonna emphasise that silhouette of the head.
So either has your hair slightly longer or try one of the fade ones that I’m gonna move on to here, and this will just sort of help you out, but this is masculine if you’ve got a good jaw, you’re sort of chiselled then, I mean, you’re blessed and this will work perfectly for you.
This next one, I don’t like personally, but I think if you’ve got that sort of attitude, you’ve got this sort of punk thing going on, then this could work, this is the Mohawk with the buzz cut.
This is slightly more high maintenance because you do have to keep the sides and the back short, but you will have this sort of strip running from the front all the way down to the back of longer hair. And this is just sort of adding that attitude to the style.
And if you’re a guy that can pull this off, like Adam Levine, then go wild, go for it.
The fades with a buzz cut, this is where you’re starting to get a little bit more stylized.
It makes it harder to do at home. And it’s the kind of thing that I would say, get your barber to do, if you want it perfect. But generally, the fade buzz cut, as you can see here in Conor McGregor is about having it super short on the back and the sides like a zero or one sort of the most. And then just keeping it longer on top.
Then you’re gonna fade from that zero into a half increment then into the one. And if you want to know about your fades and how you can do this at home, then I did do a how to cut your hair at home and video, which I will link up there, but that’s going through those clipper grades and how you can really work up and blend the hair.
I like this one just because I do think it gives it slightly more sort of dimension and slightly more texture. You could then even have it just slightly longer with a crew cut, like we saw in Justin Bieber and then super, super short on the back and the sides. And that’s where you’re starting to get into slightly more scale.
And the kind of thing again, I would say to get you, barber, to do. Now the high and tight is the final one of these seven that I’ve got, and this is really stylized. This is more of the sort of 80 sorts of style than 90 style. This works perfectly on Afro-Caribbean hair I would say, because the way that it grows, it’s gonna grow slightly further up.
You can get this sort of better sort of boxy shape that I think works perfectly with this.
It’s a zero clipper grade, and then the length is left on top and it tends to kind of grow up. It also works really well if you’ve got really sort of tight curls it’s gonna give all that bounce in the body on top.
If you’ve got fine to sort of thin hair then I would say to sort of avoiding this, because the way that it’s gonna sit on top could sort of draw attention to the scalp. And it’s just not gonna look the best.
It’s also gonna suit you if you’ve got a slight sort of wider face and you want to lengthen it and give your face height because the hair is gonna pull up just slightly and with sort of face shapes and hairstyles, it is all about sort of balancing those proportions.
If you wanna get the perfect, I say, perfect again, hairstyles are all about how you pull that off and your own personal style. If you wanna sort of getting that, it is about balancing the length from the width.
But those are seven to try. As I say, there are more on ManForHimself.com.
We’ve got long hairstyles, we’ve got super short hairstyles. We’ve got hairstyles that require more scale. And then some hairstyles that you might be able to try at home so you can check those out.
