Men’s Fashion and Hair: How to Match Your Haircut with Your Style

Finding the right clothes is only half the battle. The modern man needs to know how to work every aspect of his look. That includes his hair.

And that’s why today we’re looking at men’s fashion and hair. Although matching your hair to your wardrobe sounds complicated, it’s rather simple with the right know-how. That’s why we put together this simple guide to get you started. 

Let’s start with the basics. 

How do I match my Hairstyle? 

When matching your hair to your style, it’s all about intention. How do you want to look? When? Where? Why?

We have to answer all of these questions to get to the root of what you’re looking for in your hairstyle. Naturally, not every hairstyle will suit all events. There’s etiquette to account for after all.

The Most Versatile Haircuts for Men

If you don’t want to change your hairstyle every time you go from your casual life to your formal life, you’re looking for an all-weather hairstyle. Thankfully, there are simple and stylish haircuts to help you out. Plus, they’re a great look for anyone. 

These simple hairstyles include:

  • Buzz Cut - Possibly the lowest-maintenance of all haircuts, the buzz cut is great for any occasion. Plus, you can do it at home if you’re looking to save some money.

  • Fade - Second up, we have the fade. This hairstyle is remarkably popular with men today and for good reason. They’re easy to maintain, look sleek, and come in a variety of styles so you can find the best one for you.

  • Crew Cut - Another short hairstyle, the crew cut is somewhere between the buzzcut and a fade. Short on the sides, with just a little on top, this hairstyle works with any outfit and occasion. 

  • What do all of these cuts have in common? They look great when paired with a pair of Perk Chinos and a Feel Good Tee for a versatile, everyday look that’s sure to get some attention

    Styles for Formal Men’s Fashion and Hair 

    Looking for something more formal? Something you can confidently rock in a meeting? Well, then we’re looking for formal-friendly haircuts. Suit-friendly, if you will. However, you still want to maintain your identity.

    These are the hairstyles you’ll want if you attend many important events from the office to the conference hall. 

  • Side Part - The side part is a classic and timeless hairstyle that adds both sophistication and elegance – exactly what you’re looking for in a formal hairstyle.

  • Comb-Overs - We’re not talking about your dad’s comb-over here. We’re talking about short on the sides and long on top, swept to one side. This creates a daring but refined look suitable for a business-formal workplace.

  • The Caesar - The short and horizontally layered haircut is styled after its namesake: Julius Caesar. When it comes to men’s fashion and hair, this versatile look brings an air of confidence.

  • Slicked Back - With a little bit of styling product, a slicked-back hairstyle can give you another sleek yet refined hairstyle to choose from.

  • French Crop - The French crop is a well-loved hairstyle for any occasion, but is notably business-friendly for its simplicity. It simply involves short sides with long hair on top with a slight fringe at the front.

  • Ivy League - As the name implies, the ivy league style is remarkably popular for being neat and polished, combining short sides and top hair with just enough hair in the front to style.

  • Pompadour - If you’re a fan of classic, retro-inspired styles, the pompadour might be for you. It adds a slight touch of sophistication of years gone by. 

  • When choosing your formal wear, consider including a pair of Perk Chinos paired with a sharp blazer

    Styles for Casual Men’s Fashion and Hair

    Not everyone works in an office or often finds themselves on similar formal occasions. To that end, there’s an array of casual men’s fashion and hair options to choose from. These styles are more flexible than formal hairstyles and enjoy the freedom to have a little more fun with your look.

    When it comes to casual hairstyles, the real key is to match your hairstyle to your personality whether you’re in town or heading to the beach

  • High Fade - Think of a high fade like any other type of fade, but with a more in-your-face personality to it. If that’s what you’re looking for, give this dramatic look a chance.  It’s perfect for a night out or a casual dinner date.

  • Mohawk/Faux Hawk - Punk isn’t dead, and neither is the mohawk. Mohawks and faux hawks remain popular with those with loud personalities and the confidence to rock them.

  • Man Bun - This hairstyle really took off over the last decade as more and more men adopted longer hairstyles. A relaxed and trendy look, a man bun is perfect for casual, laid-back scenes.

  • Experimenting with Your Hair 

    Let’s be honest, there’s a lot you can do with your hair. You can dye it, you can cut it, you can wear it up or down. The combinations are practically endless. So, why not experiment?

    Trying different styles, even those that are a little out there, are how you’ll find a hairstyle that’s uniquely you. You might even start a trend. So, let’s look at the ways you can experiment with your hair. 

    Hair Tattoos 

    No, we’re not talking about permanent tattoos. These are fun designs you can add to your hair, particularly if you opt for short sides such as a fade would give you. Simply find yourself a skilled barber, and bring them a design you have in mind. Geometric patterns are particularly popular.

    This allows you to be really creative with your hair and can help you build a distinctive style all your own. Best of all, if you don’t like it, just grow your hair back out and try again. That’s a lot less commitment than a real tattoo. 

    Hair Dyes 

    It’s no secret that hair dye isn’t all that common with men. However, men’s fashion and hair aren’t limited. Hair dyes are a great way to balance your casual and formal life – provided you use temporary dyes.

    In fact, temporary dyes let you experiment with your hair and even prepare for special events such as concerts and festivals. Plus, you can even color coordinate with your outfit to create a really distinctive look – even if it’s just for the weekend.

    Finding a hairstyle that works with your wardrobe can be one of the biggest fashion challenges a man can face. There are so many options out there. It can be hard to choose the right one. However, with a little experimentation and know-how, you can find the one that truly suits you.

    Just remember to consider your face shape, hair texture, and personal preferences to find something that reflects your personality.
