The layered hairstyle is a classic cut that works for men who like to keep more manageable hair. The layers shape the hair and give it body. It’s a rather versatile cut where a man can look really refined and distinguished with proper combing, then unkempt or messy but still trendy the next day. Robert Downey, Jr. is one celebrity who often wears his hair layered and styles it neat or messy, depending on the event. Robert Pattison’s hair in Twilight is similarly cut this way, and has been called by GQ as the “Best Head of Hair on the Planet.” The style looks low-maintenance and carefree, but a layered hairstyle tends to become difficult to manage as it grows. It requires regular cutting and styling. Products like mousse or styling creams are needed to hold it or keep it neat.


For the messy “bedhead” look, all of your hair should be cut staggered at slightly different lengths (use scissors or shavers to randomly thin and shorten it in various areas). Put gel or pomade all over your hair and give it a tussle. Once everything is sticking out in different directions, you’ll have a bedhead look. If you don’t tussle the back and sides, letting them lay fall flat (or if they’re cut shorter), it will be a perfect look for a jock or preppy.


Emo, an offshoot of gothic and punk, encompasses everything from poetry and music to personal style. Emo culture focuses on the dark, emotional and melodramatic. The signature haircut for this androgynous look features the “emo swoop”–extremely long, side swept bangs often completely covering one side of the face. Devotees of the emo haircut prefer black hair with an occasional streak of contrasting color. The emo can be worn long, short, spiked or layered.
