Short Hairstyles For Men – 3 Cool Styles for 2013

With spring around the corner and summer nearing, it is time to start getting serious with hairstyles that will look cool for any men stepping outside of his house. From what I’ve been able to gather on hairstyling trends through long chats with my barber friends as well as from the vibe on some of the world’s biggest cities I’ve been to, the following are 3 of the coolest short hairstyles that a male can sport for this 2013 (not all pictures are sported with a short length though):

The Undercut – Short Hairstyles for 2013

The Undercut gained quite a bit of traction right after summer 2012 due to several soccer players in the UEFA Cup and several athletes in the London Summer Olympics sporting Undercuts (each athlete would sport his Undercut with slight variations). Most notably, German soccer player Mario Gomez sported a side-parted, puffed Undercut during the UEFA Euro 2012 and German gymnast Marcen Nguyen sported a flatter, slicked-back Undercut. During the London Olympics, David Beckham also sported an Undercut as he served as one of the promotional faces for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The Shaggy or Shag – Short Hairstyles for 2013

The Shaggy hairstyle (aka Shag) has been a go-to hairstyle for Rod Steward for decades, but it wasn’t until Ashton Kutcher started wearing this hairstyle that the Shaggy became trendy among young men. The Shaggy hairstyle has an out-of-bed tousled emphasis, which means that it is not difficult to style, and the haircut to be able to sport a Shaggy hairstyle should be done preferably in layers. Because of its laid-back and surfer/skater allure, the Shaggy hairstyle will definitively be seen during the whole of 2013 among young males and will be an excellent choice for the summer months!

The Faux Hawk – Short Hairstyles for 2013

The Faux Hawk hairstyle (aka Fauxhawk or Fo Hawk) is an excellent styling choice for just about any hair type (whether straight or curly). The Faux Hawk was popularized by David Beckham in the late ’90s/early 2000s, and this hairstyle picked even more traction with Cristiano Ronaldo, who would sport a Faux Hawk for much of his 2009/2010 soccer season at Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo has started to wear a Faux Hawk again (together with other hairstyles), which means that the Faux Hawk is still going strong as of 2013 and is picking up again in popularity since Ronaldo inspires some many men in terms of hairstyles!
