From layered messy cuts for unruly medium hair to neater, layered quiffs for the well-behaved locks – there are plenty of hairstyles for you to choose from and experiment with.
Do bear in mind though – if your hair is thinning, or if you have always had thinner hair, then the layered haircut may not be one for you. That’s because the layers will reveal balding or thinner patches – and it won’t work in your favour.

And now – let’s take a look at these hot and trendy layered haircuts for men!
#1: Layered Cut for Wavy Hair
A cool layered cut option for a man who has wavy locks. Simple to style – just add a bit of matte or high-shine pomade (your preference!) – and you’re ready to roll.
#2: Layered Haircut + Sharp Fade
A great option for adding a sharper contrast between the different hair lengths. Ideal for someone with thicker hair, as if you have thin hair, the cut will make it pretty obvious.
#3: Quiff + Mid Fade
Lots of shine, moderate volume – exactly how we love it! If you’re after a neat and simple, but super trendy cut – this baby is right up your street.
#4: Messy Hairdo
If you’re not into the whole styling your hair in the morning thing and prefer being out the door the moment you wake up, then this option will suit you perfectly. Just chuck on a bit of product and be out the door – because with this style, the messier the better!
#5: Slick Back Cut
Smooth and sleek – a fantastic hairstyle to impress the ladies! And the boys (I, for one, am impressed). A slick back cut is a very elegant style that’s ideal for special occasions, such as dinner parties, weddings, and all the other fun stuff.
#6: Gelled Quiff + High Fade
If you still can’t say goodbye to classic hair gel (admit it – we’re all somewhat nostalgic about it), then this is a hairstyle for you. Chuck on a bit of gel – and you’re good to roll!
#7: Textured Side Part + Sharp Contrast
A side part is one of the classiest hairstyles that’s popular among celebrities as well as us, simple “mortals”. But if you combine it with a sharp fade, you’ll achieve a trendy contrast.
#8: Combover Fade
Our love affair with the combover is never going to end – it’s just a really elegant hairstyle we can’t get enough of! Pair it with a fade, and you’ll add a bit of an edge to the look.
#9: Clean Cut + Sharp Fade
A nice, clean, conservative cut for the “good boy”. But – paired with a nice fade, and you’ll win points for being on trend.
#10: Side Swept + Undercut
A mellow side swept look combined with a sharp undercut – what can we say, opposites do attract and perfectly work together!
#11: Awesome Taper Cut
If you’re not into shaved sides – we get it, not everyone likes revealing their scalp – then a taper cut provides the perfect alternative.
#12: Side Part + Fade
Another version of the side part cut – stylish, classy and sophisticated!
#13: Short Cut + Bald Fade
If you prefer your hair short, then this cut is for you. Combine it with a bald fade and you’ll be left with an edgy, yet neat look.
#14: Creative Side Part + High Fade
Who says that you can’t get creative with your hair? Be as creative as you want! The curled front may well be a modern take on the classic quiff. We like it!
#15: Textured Spikes
Add a bit of texture to your spikes with some medium-hold pomade, hair wax or gel. Our preference is a pomade – but your hair is your business.
#16: The Perfect Combover
Ah, the perfect combover for the perfect man. Elegant, seductive and trendy. What’s not to love?
#17: Matte, Textured Spikes + Mid Fade
This is a fantastic haircut for a man with thick, straight hair, as the spikes will be particularly easy to create. The mid fade helps you keep your hair under control – and make it seem less overwhelming.
#18: Sharp Undercut for Thick Hair
Another hairstyle for thick hair. A nice way to cut your hair if you’re someone who prefers not to spend any time styling it in the morning. Because of the way the hair is cut, the style is already intact – so you can just wash your hair, and literally be out the door.
#19: Voluminous Pompadour
Woah! That’s some volume. If you’re someone who likes impressing the crowd, then this voluminous pompadour may be just the right hairstyle. You’ll spend some time styling it each morning – that’s unavoidable, but who cares when it makes all the compliments pour in? Totally worth it!
#20: Smooth, Textured Quiff
Another take on the classic quiff – a lovely smooth, textured quiff. The quiff is an ideal hairstyle for a “professional” man – someone who likes keeping things trendy without putting himself at risk of stares and frowns in the office when that important meeting with a client comes up.
