The Classic Buzz Cut

The buzz cut remains one of the most classic short haircuts for men. Known as the go-to “military haircut”, this popular haircut features hair that’s clipped all over the head, with a bit of a taper on the sides and back. It can be almost any length between a close clipper shave, to an inch off the head. The buzz cut is practical and low maintenance, and because it’s so short, it allows you to show off your facial features. Plus it works for all natural textures and it’s easy to borrow from other styles. You can ask your stylist to add a skin fade, or, if you don’t want that much skin showing, fade up from the sides and back. If you’re curious about a modified version of this cut, try a mohawk buzz. Ask your stylist to shave the sides all the way to the skin, leaving a wider buzzed strip of hair in the center. This is simple yet versatile.
