3 Classic & Timelessly Stylish Hairstyles for Men
When it comes to stylish haircuts for men, you have thousands of options to choose from. Hopefully, you’re not one of these “just make it shorter” guys. Your haircut is one of the most integral aspects of your appearance, so why would you opt for a trim from a $10 discount “salon”? Instead, grow some balls and aim for a timelessly classic style that will make the ladies — and some of the fellas — swoon when you make an appearance.
Classically Stylish Haircuts for Men
1. Classic Pompadour
David Beckham and Brad Pitt have sported this relatively “t
all” hairstyle, but you’ll most likely remember it from Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley. If you don’t think that’s classic manliness, there’s not much we can do for you.
2. Slicked Back
Yes, nearly everyone can slick their hair back, but the classic style started in the ‘20s so gentlemen could wear their class-showcasing hats around. The sides and back need to be tapered, but length on top will pull off the look.
3. French Crop
ides and back of your hair extremely short, but you can play around with the top.
4. The Quiff Style
We said quiff, pervert. Envision James Dean and early-‘90s Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp. This volume-maximizing “do” lets you go neat or messy while accentuating your manly facial features.
Finding the Right Barber
There’s a difference between knowing and doing, so even if you know the best classically stylish haircuts for men, it means very little if you don’t find the right barber. You’ll always want to avoid “discount” salons. After all, a low-cost haircut that looks like trash isn’t actually a great deal. You need a real barber, and here’s a few tips to find one.
- Find a clean shop: A clean shop shows that barbers take pride in their work.
- Look at other services: Does the shop do more than just cut hair? Learning additional skills showcases a commitment to excellence.
- Look for scheduling: You can walk into discount salons and have your hair cut in minutes. This isn’t a good thing. Find a barber that takes appointments. They often do this because they’re in high demand!
- Barbers that cater to you: Is your scalp sensitive? You might need advanced treatments. If you have special needs, find a barber that caters to them.

Finishing Out the Look
It’s time to finish out the look! After all, sporting a fancy ‘30s “do” means nothing if you’re dressed like a Grateful Dead roadie. Sean O’Pry, one of the world’s leading models, recommends sporting a vintage watch. We wouldn’t typically suggest watches first, but we’re talking about classic haircuts here. It works.
You’ll also want to consider high-end sunglasses, frame-fitting pants, jackets or tops that
complement your slacks, and a pair of high-quality shoes. Model David Gandy also points out how important skincare is. Don’t let your face go to trash and ruin your style.
Of course, fashion tips can change dependent on the style you’re going for, so nail down the right style with our article on dressing for success.
Leave Your Mark on History
All great men in history have one thing in common: None of them had crap, run-of-the-mill haircuts. While there are plenty of modern cuts you could opt for, going the classic route will show others that you have a style that transcends time. This is a good jumping-off point to becoming the classically stylish man you know you can be, but make sure to visit BSG Dispatch for additional tips on being badass.
