Which hairstyle gets your vote?

If you want to get a new haircut that is edgy enough to get you noticed, but not too extreme for the office, we have two hairstyles that could be perfect for you. Long rockstar waves and a contrast-heavy undercut are two on-trend looks that are guaranteed to shake things up!

The question is, which one would you be more likely to try?

Rockstar waves

Longer hairstyles for men are making something of a comeback right now so if you've been thinking about letting your locks grow, your timing couldn't be better. With rockstar waves, there's a hint of rebellion but it's the kind of cut that can be easily tamed with a quick knot or ponytail whenever necessary.

Styling tip: Add texture by scrunching a small amount of wax through the mid-lengths and ends of a longer haircut. You don't need much, just enough to create a subtly wavy, bed head look.


If you like your hairstyles to really make an impact, an undercut might be the perfect look for you. This hairstyle does require regular trims to maintain a striking contrast, but the undeniably cool results can be well worth it!

Styling tip: Use a small amount of pomade to sweep the long hair back. To add height, lift it with a comb, then use a blow-dryer to fix it in place. This will give you a smooth, long-lasting finish.
