Top 5 Mens Short Hairstyles

At Renegade Barber Shop, we’ve been cutting some unique hair lately. We get requests for custom hairstyles all the time, but if you need inspiration for great short hairstyles, here are our top 5 mens short hairstyles. Some have been popular for ages (like the caesar haircut), and some have made it back in popularity in recent years (like the side part pompadour).

Here are some great hairstyles for guys with short hair preference. If you have hair that you can’t maintain, take a look at some of these short hair styles that need much less maintenance than longer hair.

When you’ve picked a hairstyle, the next thing to do is visit one of our Tallahassee barber shops or Fort Walton Beach barber shop to get your hair back on point. Make sure to vote for your favorite mens short hairstyle at the end!

1. Caesar Haircut

Caesar Haircut


A classic haircut that was brought to fame by Ricky Martin in the early 2000’s, ever since then its been in the top 10 (if not top 3) of the most popular mens short hairstyles every year. You can see why its so popular, it requires the least amount of maintenance compared to the other hairstyles in the selection.

Caesar Hairstyle


This hairstyle is similar to the simple casual haircut below, but the difference is that Caesar hairstyles tend to have spiky hair (clean look or messy bedhead-ish look). Use a bit of gel for shiny spikes, or tone it down with some pomade to have more of a softer look.

You can style your hair with spikes, keep it down, or in between (bedhead).

2. Simple Casual Haircut

Simple Casual Haircut


This simple and casual haircut is very popular for men with short hair, because you need very little time to maintain and have a great look. Your hair is cut with short sides and back. You have a little bit of layer on top to play around with, so you can create your own look.

This type of hair is typically nicknamed the “bedhead look”, because even after you style it a bit (adding gel or pomade if needed) it still has a look like you just got out of bed. A fresh haircut that will always be a top 10 hairstyle for men with short hair.

3. Side Part Pompadour

Side Part Pompadour Haircut


This hairstyle has gained huge popularity recently, with male celebrities and alphamales donning this bold look. The side part pompadour is not as short of a style as the other top 10 picks, but its popularity and easy maintenance give it the same characteristics as a short haircut.

Side Part Pompadour Hairstyle


The sides and back of your hair are very short, and you have a nice medium-length bit of hair on top to comb to the left or right, whichever you prefer. While you do have a bit of longer hair on top compared to the sides and back, it’s a very easy maintenance type of hairstyle.

4. Slick Back Haircut

This slick back hair style is probably the cleanest look of the picks, if that’s what you’re going for. You can do this hairstyle with short hair (above), or with a bit of more hair (below). Its a great clean hairstyle that requires just a few minutes of maintenance every morning to get the right look you want. You can see in the picture above that you’re able to experiment a bit with the slick back style to get the look that fits your look the best.

Brad Pitt donned the slick back hairstyle in one of his recent movies, in a very bold way. He had the sides and back trimmed very short, with a bit longer medium-length hair on the top. Notice that you can have the slick back hairstyle super clean and organized like the first picture, or give your hair a bit more freedom to move like the hairstyle above.

5. Undercut Haircut

This is one of the more unique hairstyles, because you can ask for an undercut hairstyle and then customize it any way you want.

When you ask for one of the other haircuts in the list, you can customize by hair length, but with the undercut hairstyle you can customize the way the hair is cut to best accentuate your facial features.
