The Loose Quiff — for this style, I cut the model’s hair tight around the sides and back (a #1 blade around the ears, with a clean taper in the back). The top is styled loosely with fingers using a bit of Baxter of California Hard Water Pomade. Alternately, this style could be worn neat with a side part. This style is blended with no disconnection between the sides and the top.
Skin Fade with Short Top — this a great potion for a guy with wants an aggressively short haircut with just enough length on top to set it apart from a buzzcut. For this cut, we razor shaved the sides and about 1/4 of the way up and faded the hair into about one inch length on top.
The Buzzcut — this is a classic men’s style that never gets old. For this cut, the barber took the model’s hair down to about a number two blade on top and tapered it cleanly around the sides and back. The buzzcut done right. For a more urban look, the front hairline could be finished with a clean outline. This is the ultimate low-care haircut.
The Long Layer Cut — for guys wanting some length to their hair, the longer layer cut (with a slightly off-center part) is a good option for 2017.
