El french crop It is one of the most flattering cuts out there. Characterized by some very short sides contrasting with a slightly longer, forward-combed top with bangs. We could say that it is the second option after shaving for those who bet on very short hair.

By the way, this cut works well for both straight and wavy hair and, in addition, within it we can play with different lengths of bangs.

Medium long bangs

The long pop-style bangs could well be an evolution of the french crop. For this cut, the bangs are left longer and more populated like the sides that, instead of going in a hurry, are left slightly longer. It is a cut to be done with scissors, leaving the area of ​​the sides more unloaded as opposed to a very dense fringe. It also works great for both straight and wavy hair. The hairstyle became very fashionable in the 90s by bands like 'Blur' and today it has made a strong comeback due to its versatility.


El undercut It is the haircut of the moment, the hairstyle that sweeps social networks like Instagram. A haircut that is basically done with the fade or fade technique. The cut is characterized by a long and voluminous top, contrasting with short sides that are decreasing from longer to short, top to bottom.

This type of cut has so many possibilities that today we could say that it has become a viral phenomenon.

Pompadour and Toupee

The pompadour had its heyday in the 50s. The hairstyle characterized by combed hair like a toupee swept at this time thanks to the 'Grease' phenomenon or the popular Elvis. Although, what not everyone knows, is that it owes its name to the aristocrat Madame Pompadour, one of the lovers of Louis XV, who wore these raised and voluminous bangs. Nowadays he has made a strong comeback thanks to style icons such as David Beckham or Bruno Mars. The modern pompadour has been reinvented with heavily faded and short sides, as opposed to heavily bushy bangs..

The stripe to the side is a another of the classics of men's hairdressing that never goes out of style. In fact, it is a hairstyle that has been in trend since the 4th years. It has never stopped getting carried away. The side parting is the wild hairstyle, a style that suits most men and that can be worn with both short hairs and longer hairs. The last update of the cut is the one that marks the line in a fixed way, an effect that is achieved by drawing it during the cut with the shaving machine.

Style against

The mods they made this fashionable hairstyle with short and straight bangs with semi-long sides that become more prominent in certain areas such as the sideburns.
