Alternative Men’s Hairstyles


The majority of men decide to choose a traditional haircut, yet on occasion, there is a deep desire to do something different and completely unique. At these moments, the alternative haircuts tend to come out. Yet while you may think that they are grossly inappropriate for most people, in actual reality there are many alternative haircuts that are actually highly desirable. Some of the first styles that come to mind are the bald or shaved head as well as the Mohawk. These are both styles that are considered a bit bizarre, yet when used appropriately and cut in the right style and on the correct person they can look really good.

Finding a haircut that is actually unique, rather than exactly like everyone else is not always easy. Especially if you are trying to create a completely unique image for yourself. Breaking free from the traditional conceptions about hair is something that some people have great luck with, while others tend to struggle for months if not years. Yet a great alternative haircut will leave you amazed and excited over the great possibilities that you can actually do with your hair. While of course your hair is something that you will have for a long time, there is no reason at all why it has to appear boring, or be plain.

Brush Cut

From the past a brush cut was mostly unpopular, however this is a style that is seeing a revitalized life. Looking like a brush with the hair on top of the head typically standing straight up this is a style that can be highly appropriate for young boys and even young adults.

Faux Hawk

Designed to be a bit on the wild side, the faux hawk is still a bit more traditional than the Mohawk itself. Designed to be approximately ¼ to ½ inch on the sides the hair moves to approximately 2 to as much as 4 inches long on the very top. The hair is then often styled with some form of wax, gel or even pomade to provide the spiky appearance that they are known from.


One of the most unique and bizarre hairstyles that has been created in a very long time. This involves shaving the entire head except for a strip of hair that is approximately 2 to as much as 4 inches wide that runs from the forehead to the back of the neck. The hair that is left is anywhere from 6 inches to as long as 12 inches long depending upon the exact methods to style the hair. The hair left on the head for a Mohawk is traditionally styled to provide bold and dramatic spikes that are quite unique and hair raising.

Razor Cut

This is a style of cutting hair that is done using a razor rather than the traditional scissors or even clippers. Typically, this is good for creating a jagged or choppy appearance in the hair. Hairstyles using a razor cut are not typically considered neat and highly clean, as part of the appearance is the slightly messy lines that are created in the cut.


This is another one of the highly dramatic and unusual hairstyles that is often popular especially amongst younger men. Using hair gel, pomade or even wax the hair is gathered and twisted or carefully shaped into spikes that are all around the head. It is important to note this is vastly different from the Mohawk that requires the hair other than the center strip to be shaved off. All hair is left, just styled into the spikes.
