Suave: Casual Look for Stylish Men

Hair: Side Part Undercut
The side part is back! In combination with the undercut, this style looks classic and modern all at once. The geometry particularly highlights thick and wavy hair. Accentuating this cut with product is another way to enhance the suavity of the look!

Beard: Stubble
This is the slightly shorter cousin of 5 o’clock shadow, but its effect is similar: adding a bit of appealing style to the overall look!

Clothes: Casual-Formal
The difference between this style and business-casual is subtle. Instead of deriving from the corporate world, it comes from the creative mixing of your favourite casual and creative wear. No suit, no tie. Instead, combine a blazer with denim or a chino. On top, your options include t-shirts, button-downs, and knits. Accessorize to your heart’s content: leather shoes, or Chelsea boots, scarfs, gloves and glasses. Combining light and dark colours is definitely in, with white, navy, beige, brown, and pastels as favoured shades.

Creative: Stylish Hair for Modern Men

Hair: Slicked Back Undercut
In the undercut, the stop stays long while the sides and back are short. The contrast between the two layers gives this cut its daring, creative style. You can part the top, tease it rough, or just let it hang. This version is slicked back for a dashing style.

Beard: Full Beard
Projecting a relaxed mood, this style complements casual or business casual wear.

Clothes: Business Casual
There’s not need to stick to the standard polo and khakis! Business casual gives you plenty of latitude to express yourself. Combinations of shirts, sweaters, jackets, chinos, and denim are almost limitless. The only thing to avoid is anything stained, torn, too formal, or otherwise uncool – you be the judge!

Scruffy: The Perfect Look for a Night on the Town

Hair: Crew Cut
Simplicity never goes out of style. Once cut, this style is a cinch to wash and requires little to no combing. Those sporting a crew cut used to require frequent trips to the barber to keep it short and fresh – but when you have your own trimmer, you’re always looking good!

Beard: Chin Strap
The chin strap follows the jawline in a neatly trimmed “strap” of hair. Try it without or without a moustache to get the look you want.

Clothes: Rough
This is a look you make as plain or as extravagant as you please. So long as it isn’t too fancy or formal, anything can work: oversized coats, t-shirts, pullovers, bombers, black leather and dark denim jackets, jeans, and chinos. A wide range of accessories is similarly possible: work and combat boots, sneakers, bold jewelry (silver in particular), chains, gloves, scarves and sunglasses. Dark colours are great, but a bright t-shirt is always welcome.
