The year of every man can be categorized into two parts: haircut before summer and haircut after summer. Often the ritual haircut signals the start of the new season, and it doesn’t matter if you are ready or not; the time for your 2021 Spring-Summer 2021 Men’s Haircut is already here.
What is a good men’s haircut for spring and summer? According to the most famous hairdressers, there are actually two factors: a shortcut on the sides to feel the air pass when it is too hot and a super easy to maintain cut. Moisture takes a toll on everyone’s hair, so you need something that doesn’t take a long time to style. Plus, less product on your hair means less time spent in the steamy bathroom when it’s really too hot outside.
When asking your hairstylist for a new 2021 haircut for men, the pros suggest taking a few photos of hairstyles you like with you and asking them how you should maintain your chosen haircut before you do it. But, believe us, if you choose one of the cuts below, you will have a great summer, and you will feel great wearing it! Here is our list made especially for you!
Men’s haircut 2021: The ball to zero
The 2021 men’s haircut: The zero ball cut is perfect for the summer
The zero ball cut allows you to feel cool in summer
Still trying to avoid the ball cut to zero if your face is too round
The Boule à zero cuts are very trendy for the coming summer of 2021
The Zero Ball cut is perhaps the most iconic men’s haircut of all time. It is also perhaps the most suitable cut for the warm season because it is almost impossible to overheat your head when the hair is not there. In addition, the cut does not require any maintenance, so visits to the hairdresser also decrease. But its DIY aspect is deceptive: So, never do this cut all by yourself at home! Your hairdresser is the one who will be able to do it in a way that improves the shape of your head instead of making it worse. And be careful: The zero ball may not be the best choice for you if your face is too round!
Men’s haircut 2021: Shorthair
Men’s haircuts 2021 short hair are also among the biggest trends for this spring and summer.
Having the cut hair cut allows you to feel fresh even during the most intense heat.
Short hair is suitable even for men with round faces.
Short hair allows you to lengthen the face and refine it.
However, unlike the Boule à zero cuts, short hair is appropriate for men with round faces. You will have the same summer look like the Zero Ball cut, but the top of the head is kept with slightly longer hair and square to the sides. This helps to lengthen the face and makes it even thinner. Make sure to tell your hairstylist that you want the square sides on top of the head to keep that military style more subtle. Depending on the type of hair you have, you can use some hair pomade to maintain its shape.
Men’s haircut 2021: Regulatory haircut
The regular haircut is also one of the most trendy cuts and also the most versatile for men in summer.
If you already have this cut, you can optimize it for summer by making the sides shorter.
By opting for the regulation cut, you can change your look as much as you want
Here is another example of the modern regulatory cut
Widely known as the most versatile haircut for men, the regulation cut is also perfect for summer. And even if you already have it, you can optimize it for the heat by making it a little shorter on the sides than you do in the winter. The pros advise going down to the smallest mower setting at the base, but not too close to leave showy skin. Make sure the top of the head is about 5cm, and your hairdresser creates some texture with the help of scissors, so you can change up your look if you want. The clay will make it look messy, the pomade can make it look whatever you want, and the gel can make it look smooth and classic. Add your product to towel-dried hair, and you’re done!
Men’s haircuts 2021: short haircuts
The shortcut is another idea of wearing your hair in the spring and summer when it gets hotter.
The short cut looks very close to the regular cut
If you choose this cut, style your hair towards the front
The shortcut is arguably the closest cousin to the regulation cut. The short sides are similar, but the top is kept a bit shorter. This cut is meant to be styled forward, and the bangs should be cut in a straight line across the forehead. Have your hairstylist keep the top textured to add dimension and use a matte clay or light pomade to hold it in place (but nothing that won’t make it look like a shiny helmet).
Men’s haircut 2021: Surf Rat
Even if you haven’t been surfing, that doesn’t stop you from trying the 2021 Surf Rat Men’s Haircut.
The Surf cut is for those who like to have the length in their hair.
Even if you’ve never surfed in your life, that doesn’t have to stop you from wanting to look like you’ve been surfing your whole life. Ever since The Endless Summer was released in 1966, men have seen surf culture as the quintessential summer haircut look. To look like you’re spending your entire day at the beach, the key is actually your hairstyle and not necessarily the hairstyle itself, but you need to have at least shoulder-length hair.
Use a hair spray with sea salt to give that original look of your hair as if you have spent the day at the beach.
When your hair is wet, use a salt hair spray to add volume and texture, and then let your hair dry freely. The salts in the spray will make your hair streaky, and the liquid will bring out the natural texture of the hair as it dries. You can also make your own salt spray yourself by adding fine salt to the water and putting the mixture in a spray bottle. Experiment with the dosages until you find the right mixture that won’t make you feel like you have dry hair.
Men’s haircut 2021: Flat cut on top
The 2021 flat top men’s haircut is inspired by the 90s but has always been very popular for the summer.
Here is a very original and personalized example of the flat top cut
The trendy men’s haircut 2021 can also be worn very short
One might think that the renaissance of the 90s style is responsible for the return of the flat top cut, but the truth is, this cut has always been viral thanks to its short sides. The key to making it more suitable for summer is not to make it too high, which requires more work and more hair products. Work your way down to the skin on the sides, then have your barber cut to the point where your head begins to curl. Then keep it just a few inches above your head. Keeping it short means less picking to maintain height and ensures it won’t frizz at the ends.
Men’s summer haircut: shaggy cut inspired by the 70s
The shaggy look is a very suitable look for the summer
The shaggy haircut only depends on one thing: the length of your hair
Okay, this cut does not meet the above criteria: it is long on the sides and requires maintenance. But she’s so cool; she deserves a spot on this list! The retro shaggy haircut only depends on one thing: the length. The pros recommend that you do not cut your hair for at least a month to let it grow. You need to have long hair before you start shaping it, so try to resist the urge to go to the barber. The growth phase can be difficult, but you can endure it with patience and some hair product. A product that holds your hair in place a bit will prevent smears during the summer humidity.
Men’s summer haircut: Fade top with curly top
The 2021 men’s haircut with a curly top is perfect for those with naturally wavy or curly hair.
The basics of this cut are similar to the regulation cut but made especially for men with curly hair. The key to success lies in juxtaposing the short sides made on the bland technique and the longer, curly top of the head. Make sure you leave enough length to define your curls well, but not too much so that the hair starts to bounce from the moisture. Use a product for curly hair and light gel to keep your curls intact even in the middle of summer.
Men’s summer haircut: Short Pompadour haircut
The classic Pompadour haircut requires many maintenance and care products, but it is not the same as its modern version.
If you like long hair on the top of your head, go for this modern cut.
The iconic Pompadour cut made popular by Elvis and Morrissey requires a lot of maintenance and many hair products. But you can still have that look in the summer without taking the risk of having flattened hair. This is the short Pompadour cut, a truncated version of the original, which is basically a shortcut with the front left longer. It would help if you had this length in the front to comb it back over the rest of the hair and have this beautiful look. Use medium pomade to hold the hair in place all day and finish with hairspray, and you are good to go! You can also use a round brush and blow-dry your hair if you wish!
Men’s summer haircut: The summer undercut
The summer undercut cut is for those who don’t want to give up on long hair altogether.
So you’ve been wearing your hair long all winter and not quite ready to get rid of it just because the beaches are already open? In this case, hairstyling pros recommend the summer undercut cut. Cut the sides really short, keep the length on top of the head, but don’t use the bland technique. What you are looking for is a dramatic difference between the ribs and the top of the head. The short sides will make you feel cooler in the hot weather, and the length on top offers a variety of styling options. Do not touch the sides all summer, and in September, you will be almost the same length as before summer. It’s summer vacation for your hair!
