Your last haircut should be two weeks before the big day, when your haircut has had time to settle but not grow out too much. Ahead, our top 15 men’s haircuts to use as inspiration for your wedding day.
More guys are adopting longer, more natural styles these days, as letting your hair do its thing is often your best look. Instead of over-complicating your style by working against your hair, embrace its natural texture. It gives a cool, classic wedding day look that lets you actually look like yourself.
Remember that these are your wedding pictures that last forever, and classic haircuts never die. A modern classic haircut is always good. Something with a side part, scissor cuts on the sides, and some length on top. It should be able to be pushed over.
A mid-length afro helps natural texture shine through instead of relying on picking for volume. It’s a young, cool look, but still controlled enough to look appropriate for a formal setting (like a wedding).
The difference between a buzz cut you do yourself and what your barber gives you is that it’s not one length all over. Keeping hair slightly longer on top than the sides will help accentuate your bone structure.
An easy way to enhance your hair is using a styling cream. They are good for all hair lengths and don’t have much hold, but help provide shape. Creams also help de-frizz it and keep the hair looking smooth (but natural)—especially if you have longer hair with a natural wave.
Slicked back hair is one of the most classic special occasion styles for men, but it’s all about what product you use. Don’t use a gel, which will make your hair look more wet than slick. Instead, use a pomade to add volume without too much shine.
Shine pomade is great for weddings because it’s definitely more of a dressier look. If you use a matte clay or paste in your daily life, switching to a shiny pomade for your wedding is the easiest way to up the ante with minimal effort.
Anyone with curly hair knows that it has a mind of its own. Keeping your curls short or medium length can make a big difference. Ask your hair stylist to teach you how to style your cut well before your wedding day to make sure you’re prepared (that goes for all haircuts too).
An undercut (when your hair on top is much longer than hair on the sides) is one of the most versatile haircuts you can have. Keep it slicked back for the ceremony and then mess it up for the reception.
Modern flat tops look cool because they’re shorter and not as extreme as their 90’s predecessors. That shorter length also makes them great for a wedding since they’re cool and edgy without being over the top. Just remember to get it cut two weeks before the big day for optimal shape (without the excess length that three to four weeks of growth time would produce).
