This style of line up is a very popular cut called the gentleman’s cut, made of razored skin-tight sides with a nicely done hairline. This hair design is by barber Rob Ramirez of Turlock, CA.
“I would definitely recommend leaving some length on top, as you want it long enough to style. I also recommend pomades and buying a nice brush and blow-dryer for a nice look,” Ramirez states, providing tips to men who want to wear this.
Line Up with Low Fade
This straight razor line up with low fade is a classic, stylish, and modern hairstyle by stylist Javier Hernandez of California.
“Fades have been around for years. They’re stylish because they bring up your style, and you can never go wrong with a fade. Fades are still really popular, and I don’t see them going away,” Hernandez emphasizes.
Before adopting a low skin fade with line up, Hernandez advises considering if you have the proper hair and length on top to style it.
He suggests, “use the right products to style your hair. I think you can never go wrong with a fade depending on what face shape you have, and it’s mind-blowing how a nice haircut will change your personality and the way you look and feel about yourself.”
Line Up with Shaved Designs
This is an extremely short, neat, and urban line up style—a number 4 guard on top and a skin fade on the side. According to Texas-based barber Michael Kelly, the best thing about this line up cut is that it shows off clean lines and smooth transitions.
Kelly suggests this cut for guys who wants a bold look and who likes to frequent the barbershop. This look may take minimal effort because of how short it is. However, it does need to be re-cut and lined within two weeks at most.
“I would suggest this cut to men who have a round shape head, strong jawline, or dudes who don’t have too many dips or indentations. This look requires almost zero time to style. Definitely, it’s a get-up-and-go cut,” Kelly notes.
Line Up Cut With Drop Fade and Beard
This line up haircut displays a slick traditional side part with a modern mid-drop fade. It’s blended down into the beard and a medium to long-length up top.
Barber Nate Alexander from Los Angeles states, “I love the contrast from a full dark top into a bald finish, highlighted by the arch around the temporal.”
Ideally, straight to wavy hair and a strong face structure will make these types of mens hairstyles stand out.
For styling, Alexander recommends using a shiny pomade or strong hold gel. “This low-maintenance haircut can get you through a long day,” Alexander adds.
Line Up with Pompadour for Long Hair
The style is a line up with a pompadour, which adds volume to the hair. Massachusetts-based Barber Omar Diaz created this based on the type of the face and size of the head.
For a guy that has a lot of hair volume and with a thin face and short forehead, Diaz decided to make a high degrade with a very clean shade. “First, I cut the hair at 90 degrees with angles of 45 degrees. Then, I made texture cuts near the nape and half of the hair already cut to remove weight. Finally, I did the fade with a line on the forehead,” Diaz mentions.
After finishing the cut, Diaz washed the hair then dry and polished it until the hair is shiny. Finally, use a matte wax of the Pacinos brand and a strong and fast-drying spray.
