Medium Hairstyles and Haircuts for Men
Men`s medium hair is in fashion currently. And it may flatter you no less than short hair. If you are not sure whether you are going to cope with your mid-length hair, begin with a short-to-medium haircut, or a cut with the elongated top section. Check these photos for new ideas!
#1: Medium Length Undercut
Mid length hair is having a moment for guys, and nothing is more chic than the undercut. Pair your smooth and sleek undercut with a short, clean-kempt beard and you’ll really be looking fresh. If you want to try this style but your hair isn’t quite long enough, opt for an Ivy League while you are growing it out.
#2: Swept Back Pompadour
If you’re in search of medium length hairstyles for men that have a modern style, you might want to actually think retro—especially if you have piercings or tattoos. The mix of old school hair with new school body mod is super cool.
#3: Grown Out Layers
So suave and debonair! If you have hair this nice, you better grow it out! With this look, you will likely get the best results by blow drying your hair after you wash instead of air drying. Try using a round brush to get the barely-there flip at the ends.
#4: Mid Length Hair with Side Burn Fade
Most men with medium hair like to work with their natural texture. If you have natural waves in your hair, you can brush it back after drying and let it take on its own style. Be sure to use a light hold gel to keep hair in place (and off your face).
#5: Curled and Tapered Haircut
The trendiest mens medium hairstyles are all about curls and tapers. Combining textured hair with perfect fades and edged out hairlines is very in right now. Trust us—it isn’t easy to figure out how to blow dry your hair into curls that fall flatteringly. So before you leave the barber chair, ask for styling tips designed for your cut and hair type.
#6: Side Swept Medium Hair with Retro Feel
This retro look gets a modern edge by letting some hair fall onto the forehead. Good news: if you have naturally straight hair, this will be an easy look to pull off. All you’ll need to do is use some texturizing pomade. If you don’t have straight hair, blow the front up and sides back with a hair dryer.
#7: Tousled Balayage Hair
Balayage for men? Of course! This gorgeous male style is a must try for men with thick, mid length hair. Just be sure to go to a hairstylist who understands the importance of toning. You want caramel highlights, not yellow (we hope that particular 90s trend does not come back in style).
#8: Medium Length Spiked Fade
For mens medium haircuts that are simple and easy to style, shoot for hair that isn’t longer than a few inches. One styling trick is to let your hair air dry, then use some pomade on top to pull hair straight up and create separation in the spikes, and then hit everything with a bit of hair spray.

#9: Medium Top Short Sides Hairstyle
This is a great example of a male hairstyle that works with the natural texture of your hair, not against it. You can add some mousse or defining cream designed for curls to your strands when they are still wet. Then, as they air dry, they will have more separation and definition.
#10: Natural Medium Length Waves
For a mens haircut that is classic but currently fashionable, try longer hair on the top and shorter on the bottom. You don’t need to have it cut all the way to the skin if that’s not your style. Instead, leave a half inch on the sides and back. Use a pomade to create hold in the hair as you are styling it back and to the side.
#11: Wavy Low Fade
Here’s a cool look that is fuss free. Medium hairstyles for men do offer a lot of opportunities to experiment with hair styling products, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a cut that lets you shower and go. With this style, all you have to do is brush it back a few times when your hair is air drying.
#12: Mid Length Pompadour
The pompadour is having a major come back right now. We’re pretty sure the reason is volume. There’s just something really flattering about hairstyles that have a lot of hair on top and are short and sleek on the sides. To keep the style modern, let some hair fall onto the face so it isn’t too perfect.
#13: Modern Asymmetrical Cut
Asymmetrical haircuts have been in style for women for at least a decade. Now mens haircuts are getting a dose of asymmetry too. To make sure the cut still comes across as masculine, don’t grow the front piece out much longer than your cheek.
#14: Medium Length Cut with Edged Design
Medium haircuts for men are getting treated to a lot of designs, where previously edging and designing was typically only done on much shorter cuts. This low taper fade starts at the temple and the back of the head. To keep things interesting, there’s a carved line above the ear.
#15: Mid Length Taper
For a cool look that is really masculine, try a taper with mid length hair on top. The contrasts of length and colors create a powerful look that is at the same time very classy.
#16: Smooth Classic Pompadour
Pompadours are a great option for men who want to try slightly longer hair but don’t want to grow their hair all the way out. Plus, for guys who are used to having short hair, you will enjoy the fact that your hair is still off your face and out of the way.
#17: Medium Temple Fade with Designs
Mens medium length hairstyles look really great when paired with a temple fade. This East Coast style is catching on in other areas of the world because of its fresh, urban appeal. For an even cooler temple fade, add perfect designs on the side and defined curls.
#18: Clean Cut Ivy League
Here’s a masculine haircut that will never go out of style. The clean edging around the ear and the nape combined with the low taper lend a modern appeal. Smoothing your hair back and out of the way is a very clean approach to medium length hair.
#19: Classic Medium Length Undercut
While most men who opt for an undercut keep it almost completely shaven on the sides, you can also try leaving about an inch of hair on the sides. This gives it a less drastic look. When you style this cut, you can try blowing it all the way back or letting it fall naturally, like this version.
#20: Curly Top Undercut
The most modern thing a guy can do right now is to work with his natural hair texture. Especially if that texture is going to give you height and volume on top with basically no need for product. Curly hair all over your head might be a little too much, but leaving curls on top only is genius.
#21: Soft and Spiky
Hard and crispy spiked hair is a thing of the past, now more men are embracing soft, touchable hair that appears less groomed and more casual. This look is a go-to for males who are attractive and unapologetic about it. Nothing grabs attention more than someone who exudes confidence without having to appear like they are trying too hard.
#22: Long Layers for Straight Hair
If spikes and dyes aren’t your thing, try a flowing look with long layers. Perfect for a conservative man who loves options. You can part it or pull it up—the possibilities are endless. This medium length men’s hairstyle best complements straight hair.
#23: Sexy Natural Waves
Those who say short hair is safe don’t know how to rock longer strands with attitude. While this style is similar in theory to the one above, it uses an ample dose of natural waves and healthy volume to transform the layers and 5 o’clock shadow into a dangerous and seductive look.
#24: Side-Shaved Haircut with Comb over
This style is all about balancing the length. Complement a buzzed side with a slick chin length comb over. Rock a thick beard to keep your look rugged and masculine.
#25: Backcombed Style for Thin Hair
Sometimes thin hair needs a little bit of help whether you are male or female. Lifeless locks can look lackluster on anyone. This is a hairstyle that evokes the feeling of surfer’s cool messy, windblown locks, and an awesome pair of shades enhances the impression. Soft blonde highlights further complement this medium length hairstyle for men. They will still look great when they grow out into golden tips.
#26: Layered Cut For Medium Length
Layers are a good solution for medium hair of both thinner and thicker type. Ask your stylist to give you a blowout for added volume throughout the crown. This is the ultimate bad boy style!
#27: Short Ponytail with Beard
Many may joke that a beard and a ponytail is the male hipster uniform, but there’s no denying the appeal of a look like this. Nothing is more rugged and appealing than a casual updo and a full beard.
#28: Clean-Cut Classic Look
Don’t hide your baby blues with hair flopping into your face. Showcase a fresh face with a clean cut men’s medium hairstyle that won’t impede with your good looks.
#29: Brushed Over Style for Fine Medium Hair
This straight layered look may seem pretty basic and reserved. But, when paired with a scruffy beard, it takes on a whole new vibe. It’s a great way to show that you can be polished and still maintain a bit of a wild side.
#30: Charming and Classic Medium Cut
Remember when Leonardo DiCaprio was a fresh-faced heartthrob on the set of growing pains? Now with you rocking this style no one will ever forget. Swept back layers and natural highlights make this the perfect look for those who are looking for the special “boy next door appeal.”
#31: Cool Disheveled Look
Trendy disheveled medium length hairstyles for men can be characterized as “energetic”, full of movement, edge and texture, i.e. everything that primarily flatters men’s nature. Robert Pattinson shows off the cool style with a root lift, extra definition and semi-matt finish. It’s one of our favorites in this review.

#34: Magnetic Curly Hairstyle
If you hair is slightly curly (type 2), medium length hairstyles for men, like Adam Rodriguez shows in this picture, are optimal for your texture. Use shampoos and conditioners for curly hair. They will make it softer and more pliable in styling. The cute look of Adam is styled with a curl enhancer, applied to wet, previously washed hair. Run your fingers through your curls, guiding them backwards and scrunching.

Any contrast in your haircut or hairstyle makes your look sharper. Colin Farrell goes for temple undercuts to enhance the thickness and length on the top. A simple back sweep already makes a cool hairstyle, even if you do not use any styling products.

#36: Medium Hair With Light Wispy Waves
Matthew McConaughey’s signature hairstyle is a part of his image of a Hollywood male sex symbol. If your hair is wavy from nature, with the right medium haircut, you will automatically get a good-looking effortless hairstyle. Mousses and creams for curly hair give the awesome wispy texture, you now see on Mr. McConaughey. Medium hairstyles for men like this always attract women, try and win the laurels!

#37: Straight Hair With A Side Part And Side Sweep
Johannes Huebl wears a cool hairstyle for medium hair that goes particularly well with a suit and a tie. So, we can easily picture it as a part of men’s office style. A side part is a current trend that has been influenced by the trend on naturalness. That’s why the present-day trendy side part can be spontaneous and indistinct.

Gaspard Ulliel is often sported, wearing a leather jacket and disheveled hairstyles, but the Cannes Film Festival implies a neat formal look. So, this time the French actor demonstrates a trendy gelled look with a flattering lift at the roots. Try not to make your hair look completely wet, sleek and flat.

#39: Hair Style With Extra Volume
A short-to-medium haircut with volume on top and the tapered sides and nape section, like John Krasinski’s, is a good choice for men who prefer slightly longer hair. Apply a volume-boosting product, plus wax, styling cream or pomade for the extra definition of top hair and nice edgy contours.
