If you haven’t thought much about your hairstyle, maybe it’s time to start.

A good hairstyle can completely put your look together and give your overall style a major upgrade and a good impression.

And putting effort into your style will have a huge positive impact on your confidence. The right cut will make you more confident in your appearance which will come across to women when you’re approaching and engaging with them.

But what makes a hairstyle good? Here are the 8 sexy hairstyles for men with straight hair.

1. The High Fade

A high fade is, of course, similar to a low fade in the way it’s cut. However, the high fade begins near the top of your hair, leaving more of the striking contrast between the sides and top of your hair.

High fades are more daring than low fades, emphasizing a bit of risk-taking and willingness to put in a little extra effort. They’re becoming much more of a trend as men’s hairstyles blend more of the new with the old.

Why do women find it attractive? This is a great style to rock with a beard for an extra striking look. Also, a high fade draws attention to your style because of its drama and height.

How do you get it?  If you get a high fade, make sure you maintain your neck hair, eyebrow hair, and ear hair well, as the dramatic look and exposed skin will draw attention to any messiness in those areas.

2. The Pompadour

The pompadour was originally named after Madame de Pompadour, Louis XV’s mistress and it’s stayed close to its sexy roots ever since.

Elvis and James Dean brought the pompadour to life. The new pompadour is sometimes known as the “Bruno Mars” cut because of the pop singer’s signature look.

The pompadour is a sexy hybrid style that matches an old-school retro feel with contemporary playfulness. It’s masculine evokes a hint of nostalgia while remaining a little trendy.

For best results, ask your barber to leave the sides of your hair short, and make sure he or she doesn’t clip your hair higher than your crown

3. The Undercut

The undercut follows one key pattern, short on the sides and back and longer on the top, creating a “disconnected” effect. There’s no taper to this cut just a sharp contrast, marked by clean lines, between the top and bottom.

The undercut has quickly become one of the most popular hairstyles of 2018. It’s modern, edgy, and dramatic while remaining a confident, masculine look and a bad-boy profile.

The undercut emphasizes the masculine angles of your face and is simultaneously bold and classic.

There are many different ways to style an undercut, so look for inspiration from Justin Timberlake, Brad Pitt, and other celebrities. For more dramatic contrast and a sharper disconnect, ask for shaved sides with the usual messy, longer tousle on top (which also makes for a sharp look with a beard).

At home, make sure to buzz the sides and use wax or gel to part your hair on the side to maintain the disconnected look and show off your cut. An undercut will also need some careful regular styling with a blow-dryer and product.

4. Square Cut

The square cut (sometimes called a “shape up” when it has extra length on top) means that your barber will cut in a straight line, all to the same length, across your neck, sideburns, and hairline.

The square cut is confident, aggressive, and businesslike, which makes it perfect for a busy professional.

The square-cut emphasizes a strong jawline and a square face shape, both of which women tend to love. It’s sleek and confident without being attention-getting in a way you might not want.

Be forewarned: The square-cut requires a little extra care because as your hair grows out from your hairline, it can start to look messy. Focus on maintaining thickness and volume with the product, styling your waves, and getting touch-ups as often as you need.

5. The Caesar Cut

This cut leaves anywhere from half an inch to three inches of hair around the head, with straight, horizontal, short fringe in the front.

Drake has helped to repopularize the classic Caesar cut. It’s also easy to care for, so if you’re not big on intensive grooming, this is a good option.

The Caesar cut is named after Julius Caesar, and it lives up to its namesake. It’s a powerful cut that evokes a sense of dominance even as it projects a carefree attitude both highly attractive traits.

Most barbers will be very familiar with Caesar. It’s preferred by many men precisely because it’s such a great look with very little maintenance. Unlike some of the other trending men’s hairstyles, it’s easy to style with little need for touch-ups.

6. The Ivy League

The Ivy League cut is as preppy classic as it gets. A fade on each side is accompanied by short hair on top with a side part.

The Ivy League cut is great for the workplace and easy to maintain, with very little styling needed.

Why do women find it attractive? The Ivy League is likely to attract more conservative or traditional women if that’s your thing or simply women who appreciate a clean-cut, academic or professional look.

If you’re going for an all-business look, a low taper on the sides is a better choice, if you’re going for a tad more subtlety, try a higher fade.

7. The Hockey Cut

The “flow” hairstyle for men long (or at least medium) waves that flow backward from the front became popular during the Victorian era, but lax bros and hockey players have brought it back.

Hockey stars made this particular look sexy, though long hair for men has always been popular among certain women for a long time now. If you like this look, you’ll find plenty of women who adore it, too.

The hockey cut is romantic but with a gentlemanly flair and that’s the trick in it. It’s carefree as if the wearer doesn’t need to try too hard to look good.
How to get it? Grow out your hair first. Biotin, hydration, and regular trims will help you grow your hair long a little faster. When you’re ready and your hair is long enough, ask for a “shaping cut” for the sides of the wings.

Once you’ve got your flowing locks, make sure you continue to have your dead ends snipped and condition well to keep things healthy.

8. The Quiff

A quiff can best be described as a hybrid between an undercut, a mohawk, and a pompadour. The quiff gets an even closer shave than a disconnected undercut, with a bulge or “poof” of hair at the top.

The quiff is rising in popularity alongside its slightly less dramatic older brother, the undercut, and its bad-boy uncle, the pompadour. It’s got a bit more punk edge than other hairstyles, that’s why it stands out.

The quiff has a lot of flairs and an ultra-trendy feel, so it’s great for attracting women who like artistic or edgy types.

Grow your hair out a bit before visiting your barber, and make sure to ask for it short on the sides and back and long in the front and on top. It’s a good idea to ask for a side part and a fade on the sides and back and to keep your fringe extra-long and voluminous, so the quiff will stay put for quite some time to come.
