Hairstyles for men with thick hair can be any look — from short to long and sleek to messy — that creates shape and definition without looking too bulky.
A short cut is an obvious choice for low-maintenance men, but you can still rock a longer look with the right cut. The modern mullet or shag is a great way to wear a longer style, keeping it light and manageable for denser hair.

Here’s a photo gallery of popular hairstyles for men with thick hair. Choose one that is more suited to your aesthetic!
#1: Brushed Forward French Crop with a Mid Fade
Are you looking to change up your same old boring buzz cut? This brushed forward French crop with a mid fade is one of the most trendy cuts of the year. And it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. I recommend asking your barber for a zero fade on the sides and a scissor cut on top.
Do this to maintain some much-needed length for this style. It’s even better if they can point cut or use a razor for added movement. Pick up the thickest styling clay you can find. Try Hanz De Fuko’s Quicksand. It gives men’s haircuts some height and molds any cropped fringe around the face at home.
#2 Casual Curls for Men’s Medium Thick Hair
Casual curls for men’s medium-thick hair? Yes, please! A wavy hair cut shorter near the sides and left longer at the top creates a laid-back style. This is a great reason to boost your thick hair with a semi-curled texture!
Then, try American Crew Grooming Spray. It’s a variable hold finishing spray that you can use on damp or dry hair to hold your style in place. It provides control with a soft, touchable finish.
#3 Classic Side Part for Thicker-Haired Men
The classic side part for thick hair doesn’t need salon maintenance. Grab a comb and pick a side; you’re ready to be a classy gentleman. To upgrade the look, shave the sides for a disconnected undercut style.
#4: Very Thick Hair with a Drop Fade
For those with thick, coarse or textured hair, this drop fade haircut is stylish and easy to maintain. To create this look, talk to your stylist about a bald fade. This cut reduces hair bulk on the sides while leaving enough length on top. Above your brow, the hair can be thinned for easier management. Apply styling cream from your hair’s roots to ends. Then air dry to show off your natural texture and to minimize frizz.
#5: Mid Faded with Textured Fringe
A mid-faded cut with a textured fringe is a great way to modernize the fade haircut. A textured fringe, in addition to providing hairline coverage, also emphasizes the front visual texture of your face. For this hairstyle, ask your barber for a mid-bald fade to reduce side bulk and prevent a too-narrow face appearance. Also, request a textured scissor cut on top for a forward-cropped style.
#6: Tousled Wings Haircut
A tousled haircut with wings is a suitable medium-length style for men. This style can also work for boys. This style works best on thick, semi-curled hair. To add extra volume and separation, you can use a texture spray like Oribe’s Dry Texture. Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks if you wish to maintain this style. If you want to grow your hair out, trim every 10-12 weeks instead.
#7: Messy French Crop with Buzz Fade
A messy French crop with a buzz fade is a trendy way to update your hair this season. This style begins with a mid fade, starting from a zero. Then, it transitions into a textured short length on top. A unique feature is a whispy fringe covering the hairline. A qualified stylist can tailor this style to your structure with ease while considering any facial hair that may need to be blended into this style. For the best results, style with a matte paste similar to Quicksand by Hanz De Fuko at home.
#8: Bald Fade and Thicker Long Top
The bald fade with a thick, longer top adds style and variety to men’s grooming. This haircut design introduces a smooth transition from fading sides and back to a longer length on top. The noticeable difference in hair lengths offers a bold, modern look with various styling opportunities. This style of fade brings more attention to the length and thickness of the top, thereby ensuring a striking and focused appearance. Men aiming for a neat and refined appearance with a hint of rebelliousness prefer this hairstyle. For styling, just use a high-quality styling product to provide texture and hold to the longer top.
#9: Edgar Haircut for Thick Hair
A celebrity made the Edgar cut famous it’s a modern spin on the blunt crop. The Edgar cut has shaved parts near the ears that fade towards the temples, creating a unique shape using a distinct blend technique. If you want an Edgar cut, bring photos to guide your barber. However, remember to consider your hair type because this style doesn’t fit all hair types.
#10: Thick Wavy Hair with a Mid Fade
For men with thick wavy hair, a mid fade is a sleek and stylish choice that adds a touch of modernity to your look. This haircut features shorter sides that gradually blend into longer hair on top, creating a sharp contrast that complements straight or wavy hair. To enhance the natural texture of your hair, ask your hairstylist to add some layers to create movement and definition. When styling, use a lightweight styling product such as sea salt spray. This will enhance the texture and hold your style in place. If you want a shiny finish, use a pomade designed for thick hair.
#11: Thick Texture with a Beard
If your hair lacks shape, adding a thick texture, along with a beard, can be a good solution. This style of haircut not only suits most hair types but also reduces bulk on the sides for a slim-face look and makes your haircut last longer. Ask your barber to add texture on top, which will make it easier to style and grow your hair out. Don’t forget to ask for a product recommendation for your hair type. In general, while most hair types benefit from matte clay, those with thin and fine hair should avoid shiny products to prevent creating a greasy look.
#12: The Super V Cut
The super V cut is a modern hairstyle, perfect for men with thick hair. This style has longer lengths on top, tapering down to a V shape at the back. One major benefit of the super V cut is its capability to give structure to thick locks, thereby making it easy to style and manage. To further improve the look, request your hair specialist to apply point cutting or texturizing techniques for added movement and depth.
#13: Amazing Mullet with Textured Fringe
This amazing mullet with a textured fringe is a trendy and versatile hairstyle perfect for men with thick hair. This unique haircut combines the iconic mullet shape with a modern and fashionable twist. This haircut works particularly well for those with thick hair, as the added volume and texture complement the overall style. To maintain the look, a texturizing spray or cream will help you to enhance the natural texture of the hair and add definition to the fringe.
#14: Kpop Cut Thick Hair
The K-pop cut on thick hair is a trendy hairstyle for men that want to embrace a modern, sleek look. This haircut features a longer length on top. It allows for versatility in styling and shorter sides for a neat and clean appearance. The K-pop cut suits guys who want a polished yet effortless aesthetic.
#15: Burst Fade for Thick-Haired Men
The best way to describe a burst fade is that it’s a fade around the ears leaving length at the back, like a faux hawk. If someone is unsure, I do recommend it for a rounder face. Keeping the sides tight and more on top elongates the face from the front and back. How tight I take it depends on how thick my client’s hair is and how short they want to go.
#16: Dope Burst Fade with a Beard Fade
The burst fade with a beard fade is a trendy and stylish haircut. It combines two distinct fading techniques. The burst fade haircut creates a seamless blend from short to longer hair on the sides. The beard fade blends the facial hair into the fade. This combo results in a sharp and clean look that enhances the haircut and the beard with few drawbacks. See your barber every 2-4 weeks for maintenance.
#17: Thick Top with a Bald Fade
Some prefer a shorter style on the sides for ease. This thick top with a bald fade could be what you’re looking for. It has faded to the skin around the ears and blended heavily into the top. This fade suits the thicker hair type and dark hair as it pops more. Ask for your barber’s advice, but I recommend a good styling powder for a natural hold. My preferred brand is Crazy Bull Space Dust Powder.
#18: Stylish Short Cut
Nice and easy, no better way to explain this stylish short cut – and the best way to show off a full, lush head of hair. Make sure to tell your barber, “not too short.” This style will require a long clipper guard on the sides or a pro that is great with the scissors on the sides. Leave enough length on the top to fold back, and you’ve got a timeless gentlemen’s haircut.
#19: High Comb Over
Whether you’re trying to grow your hair out or looking to chop some hair off, why not ask about this high comb over? Not only can you achieve a slicked-back handsome hairstyle with this cut, but you can also pull off a messy ‘do. Opt for a slick back or a matte clay to help build texture in your new hairstyle.

Check out the thick mid faded hairstyle, great for those in the office or the trendy person alike. One advantage of this hairstyle is that it can support shiny, slick styling or matte and textured. Try to add different types of products to your styling routine to see what you like best.
#21: Trendy Spiky Mullet
If you are craving a change from your usual fade haircut, check out this trendy spiky mullet. To achieve this style, first, make sure that you have enough length in the back to support this look. Then I recommend that you ask for a fade around the temple area for contrast and shape. Style with matte clay for straighter types and a curl creme for curly types.
#22: Swept Back Thick Hair
Nothing is more timeless and trendy than this swept-back thick hair! This men haircut is the perfect way to show off your long locks. It’s also keeping the satisfaction of buzzed down, out of the way, and over the ear sides. If you want a haircut like this, you can ask your barber for a fade undercut on the sides. Just ask for a length on top that suits your texture and style. I suggest at least 4-6 inches for this look!
#23: Low Taper with Shaved Designs
Maybe you don’t want a style that’s too short. Or you’re looking to transition your longer style into something clean-cut. Either way, this low taper with shaved designs may be for you.
If you visit your barber, ask for a low zero fade on the sides. Request enough left on top to stay out of the eyes when it falls forward but covers the forehead. With such men haircuts, leave a volume powder to keep the look nicely styled at home.
#24: Beard Fade with a Mid-Length Messy Cut
If you want to break away from your same old fade haircut, try this beard fade with a mid-length messy cut! This is a clean take on a more relaxed hairstyle.
Spend time applying some styling cream on towel-dried hair after a shower. You’ll be ready for the rest of the day with a soft, natural hold with enough control for a sharp style. This brings out the best hair style if you apply a Malin and Goetz Sage Styling Cream.
#25: Sharp Fade and Beard Fade
If you’re a trendsetter, check out this sharp fade and beard! Next time you visit your barber, plan to show them this picture. It features a zero drop fade on the sides and a textured scissor cut on top.
I recommend styling a man’s hair style with matte clay like Hand De Fuko’s Quicksand for maximum texture and hold.
#26: Thick Wavy Mid-Length Hairstyle
Many men are opting for longer hairstyles. This thick wavy mid-length hairstyle requires fewer trips to the barbers and frees up more time. To style, I recommend drying some sea salt spray into your hair. If you blow it back, it will give you a good foundation for hold. Remember, the finishing product depends on the look you want. Use pomade for a glossy finish, matte clay for a low sheen, and styling powder for a natural finish.
#27: Clean High Fade French Crop
A clean high, fade French crop on thick hair features the sides and back, fading to 0.5 while keeping a heavy, textured top. Maintaining the length on the top of the haircut gives you a point of difference with the sides.
This cut is for thick-haired men who want to maintain a lot of length through their hair on top. The high fade is for men who like to style or sweep their fringe over. If you like to keep a more natural unkept look, then this haircut is great for that, too. My best advice is to use Chambers Shaper spray while the hair is wet, then dry it thoroughly. Sea salt hair spray won’t make your hair greasy, giving it a light hold.
#28: Thick Textured Crop for Older Men
A textured crop for older men is classic and perfect for men with medium to thick hair. This trendy cut lasts 6-8 weeks without looking sloppy. The front pieces are longer with rounded edges. Short hairstyles for men can be styled in various ways to create a masculine men’s style.
For thick hair men, it’s a messy style that’s easy to work with in the morning. It’s a classic shape designed to maximize masculinity, and it’s for various gentlemen. I recommend using a matte pomade to elevate such a hairstyle for men.
#29: Silver Thick Mohawk with No Fade
A silver thick mohawk is a great look for men with high-density hair. This haircut is great for showing off an edgy and stylish style. Make sure to ask your barber for a zero-fade mohawk, as this will ensure it has maximum impact. For best results, use matte clay or pomade to keep flyaways under control and give definition to the cut. This hairstyle could be perfect for you with an oval face shape. Just make sure not to go too short on the sides so it doesn’t overwhelm your features. To finish off, apply Bedhead by TIGI Hard Head hairspray in moderation. It gives hold without leaving your hair too stiff.
#30: High Pompadour Men’s Hairstyle
This high pompadour men’s hairstyle for thick hair is classic yet very stylish. This higher pomp haircut features a full head of hair with a long top. I suggest using a grease pomade to achieve the comb lines and height. Thick haircuts and styles like this pompadour are for men wanting a classy style.
#31: Skin Fade Caesar Haircut
This skin fade Caesar haircut is also a skin fade crop for thick hair. It’s one of the trendiest hairstyles right now. It’s a 90s style with a modern twist that blends into the scalp while leaving the top-heavy and natural. Thick men’s hairstyles like this one work well on men with a good hairline on the front fringe. Men with straight, thick hair may have trouble getting texture through the top. To style, use a texture spray and clay and slowly blow dry it into your damp hair using a diffuser.
#32: Disheveled Medium-Length Texture for Thick Wavy Hair
This disheveled medium-length texture for thick wavy hair shows off tons of movement. Try Aveda Control Paste when styling. It gives thick hair a highly texturized yet low-sheen style that’s smooth and not sticky. Using a texture cream on towel-dried hair and allowing it to air dry will give it the most natural finish. If you like a more controlled hold, use a styling gel instead.
To disheveled thick, wavy hair:
- Towel dry hair to remove excess moisture.
- Work a quarter-sized amount of high-hold texture cream through hair.
- Use fingertips to style hair.
- Allow hair to air dry the rest of the way for the best results.
#33: Unique V-Cut Style
Are you looking for a classic hairstyle with a modern twist? Ask your stylist or barber to try a wedge haircut—this style of cut pairs well with a v-shaped fade. A combo like this will allow you to get the benefits of a short and long style at the same time! Try styling with a matte pomade to hold the look together effortlessly.

Inject your thick hair with Bed Head Headrush. It’s like shining adrenaline with a superfine mist! Add extra reflection to the front with a light aerosol shine spray to your choppy fringe.
#35: Heavily Layered Short Cut
Not everyone wants their hair cut with clippers, as you can see with this heavily layered short cut. The sides have been cut, leaving the sideburn natural, but the base of the neck has been tapered. Long layers have been cut into the top and styled using a volume spray and possibly sea salt spray. Maintenance does come with this, as you must style it daily.
#36: Shaved Sides and a Disconnected Long Top
If you want a longer style, shaved sides and a disconnected long top could be what you need. It has faded short on the back and sides, then blended to the temple. The top section has been disconnected and left long for him to style as he wants. To emulate the look, you must dry some sea salt spray into it for the base of the hold. Then, finish off with some styling powder. Remember to ask your barber to recommend some products.
#37: Mid-Fade Thick Hairstyle
The thicker your hair, the more shape you can create. This mid-fade thick hairstyle has been cut to suit the client’s hair. The fade has been kept low and arched up to the top. This suits the disconnected top as it supports the weight of the style. If you want to wear a similar style, I suggest using sea salt spray to style. This will give you a strong foundation for you to create hold. I recommend finishing off with some styling powder to complete the style.
#38: Full and Choppy Thick Hair
Not every customer wants a fade; some like to keep it longer. This cut was done with all scissors using various techniques, such as point cutting, slicing, and texturing. The hair has a natural wave, so some nice textured curls can be styled into the top while keeping some straight texture for this full and choppy thick hairstyle.
If you can create this look at home, it helps to take advice from your barber and possibly buy their products. This is the hairstyle men would have fun styling!
#39: Mid-Length Cut with a Side Part
You don’t have to go super short every time you get a cut! Try a mid-length cut with a side part instead. Medium-length to longer hair for men like you is very in right now, so there’s no better time for you to try something different!
#40: Icy Mullet
Mullets are returning stronger than ever, as seen with this icy mullet. The hair has been previously lightened and toned to achieve the grey color, and a good way to keep it toned is to use a purple shampoo. This mullet has been cut to look like a shag style with choppy layers and a good blow-dry for texture. Sea salt spray and styling powder will be good for styling. The beauty of this style is that it looks just as good natural as styled.
#41: Mid-Fade with a Spiky Top
Some like to add texture to their straight hair. Pay attention to how this will give it more movement, as seen with this mid-fade with a spiky top. It has been taken down to the skin around the ears and faded up, leaving more hair to transition into the top. The top will have been cut using a technique called point cutting. This will leave the ends of your hair textured. I suggest using a good styling powder for the best styling.
#42: Thick Mid-Fade + Faux Hawk Haircut
This thick mid-fade + faux hawk fade haircut is balanced and doesn’t look too voluminous. When paired with facial hair, it looks bold. Men with thick hair are guaranteed great hairstyles; a mid-fade is perfect for achieving this. Finish with strong hairspray or wax to keep your hair high and dramatic.
#43: Thick Undercut with Hard Part
A thick undercut with a hard part is an extremely popular trend for men with thick hair. Undercuts allow for a portion of the hair to remain short and tidy while giving the freedom for longer lengths. Adding a hard part line makes it easy to style and dress up for more formal events.
It’s the haircut men would love if they were looking for easy maintenance!
#44: Textured Top and Disconnected Undercut for Coarser Hair
Try a textured top with a disconnected undercut for coarser hair that tends to be stubborn or hard to style. The texture is a great way to make coarse hair easier to manage. An easy style with a textured top and disconnected undercut is an “intentionally messy” style that can be achieved with some tousled waves or curls.

The thick Ivy League cut + back-swept hairstyle is a formal and traditional classic haircut. This is a longer version of a crew cut. This thick hairstyle is long enough for parting, with sides that are short. New barbershops come close with metrosexual cuts, but they’re not quite pompous.
This thick, swept-back style is for men who want to save time combing their hair. With no more than 1.5 inches of hair on top and a gradually shorter fringe, it’s great for all activities. When styling, use a matte paste for the finish or hair pomade for a shiny look.
#48: Shaggy Brush Cut with Messy Texture

It’s ideal to use as little product as possible and still have the style hold for the whole day. This messy textured cut is the perfect option for guys with thick hair!

This lined-up haircut with a fade is for men with straight, thick hair.
#50: Modern Thatch Combover with Sharp Hard Part

This is done instead of parting or sectioning the hair with a comb or brush. This thick cut is a fade transition with a light-to-dark contrast. Use pomade with a shine on your long hair to achieve this cut for thick hair.
#51: Side Part + Low Fade with a Long Curly Top
This side part + fade with a long curly top is timeless. The low skin fade is perfect for short to medium-thick hair. The side part is a classic cut that any man can rock. This low fade looks best on men with a little wave in their hair. When styling this short men’s haircut, try Uppercut Deluxe Matt Clay. It works best on wavy hairstyles and for men who want to keep that thick natural curl and wave.
#52: Spiky and Textured with Long Thick Hair on Top
Spiky and textured with long thick hair on top is a clean style for most men. It’s one of the easier hair styles for men with thick hair. Try Kevin Murphy FREE.HOLD styling paste to create this shape. Work the product through your hair, piecing and twisting certain strands. That will give you a textured, not-so-perfect style.
For maintenance, ask your barber to use thinning shears to thin out the top and a razor to keep your texture. Short haircuts like this make styling thick, wavy hair manageable. If you’re a guy with thick hair looking for a new hairstyle, mention this to your barber. You may even be able to wear it as a mohawk if cut correctly.
#53: Brushed Back & Natural Curly Crop
This brushed-back and natural curly crop combines high volume and thick hair. It’s textured, brushed back, and has a natural look and feel. Use a light amount of sea salt spray and a matte finish clay for styling. The more natural the finish, the better.

#54: U.K.-Inspired Fade with Short Sides
This U.K.-inspired fade with short sides creates a thick, wavy texture paired with a smooth fade. Men’s hairstyles like this will eventually make their way to the US! Any salt spray would be a key element to give your hair texture. Adding some texturizing and volumizing powder will also aid in styling. The cropped fringe style is a great haircut for men looking to stand out. It makes the dapper hair styles men with thick hair can wear. It’s easy to style and even easier to maintain.
#55: Naturally Curly Hair with Tapered Sides
This is naturally curly hair with a mid-fade for thick hair. This cut works well with curls, but men with curly or straight hair can wear this men’s taper haircut. Use Elegance Wax and Pomade for the hair on top of your head. Use a minimal amount to get that messy look. If you have a beard, use Elegance Hair and Beard Oil. This will leave your beard softer with a light shine. These thick curls with tapered sides are perfect for a gentleman who wants to try something new. Weekly maintenance is suggested with the hair products mentioned above.
#56: Young Professional Combover Part Hairstyle for Men
This young professional thick combover part hairstyle for men is casual yet sophisticated. This cut has soft blending up the sides, with the part being long enough to feather back. To create this style, use a blow dryer to give it as much body as possible. Use a small amount of matte clay product to hold the style together while maintaining a natural look.
I also suggest asking your barber to exaggerate the feathering back of the sides to give it that nice, blended feel. Make sure you dry it almost straight back from the part rather than down and away from it. With enough blow drying, curly or thick hair can still be manipulated to achieve this awesome hair cut style for men.
#57: Texture Cut with Highlights and a High Shine Finish
This textured cut with highlights and a high-shine finish adds dimension and interest to men’s hair. It works so well on a thick and wavy hair type. Use a matte paste with a stronghold for styling. American Crew Fiber is good since it makes your hair look natural, but it still has a stronghold.

If you have curly, straight, or wavy hair, you can still have this hairstyle with slight variations.

#59: Cool Combover Short Haircut for Thick Hair
This cool combover short haircut for thick hair uses all aspects of barbering. A detailed description of this cut would be a combover with a mid-bald fade and the top trimmed. I advise those who wear these hair cuts for men to use a light pomade. Many dudes over-saturate their hair with pomade or gel, but ideally, just a small amount is necessary. This hairstyle is for a guy with thicker hair but can be tailored for any man. Ask your barber to cut the top of your hair shorter if you’re active.
#60: Modern Slicked Back Hair with a Taper Fade
This thick modern, slick back hair with a taper fade is classic. To achieve this slicked-back hair, blow dry it with your hands. After drying, apply a matte cream product such as Layrite Matte Cream.

This layered haircut combover for older men with thick hair is sharp! The longer length on top and sides makes it classic. Try Gage for Men Shaping Cream for hold, flexibility, and a medium finish.

#64: Thick Buzz Cut
The simple thick buzz hairstyle is refreshing and sleek and is more easily pulled off by boys with thick hair.
#65: Short Faux Hawk
A short fauxhawk with dense, dark hair produces a clean-cut yet modern finish. Try American Crew Molding Clay. It provides concentrated styling power that lets you manipulate your hair.

#66: Business-Friendly Haircut for Thick Wavy Hair
This business-friendly haircut for thick wavy hair is perfect for dark-haired men—especially thick-haired men who want a corporate-friendly coif. Thick wavy hair men can also remain youthful with this thick hairstyle. To style, try American Crew Firm Hold Gel. It’s non-flaking, alcohol-free, and has a low pH to prevent scalp drying. Wavy hair can be tricky to work with. If you like more control, use a blow dryer to finish drying your hair after you work the gel through it.
#67: Short Shag with Layers
A short shag with layers is a medium to short cut styled around the head to create tons of movement. It also adds a shattered feel around the ends. Use Bed Head B for Men Multi-Tasking Grooming Cream. It’s a lightweight cream that gives natural definition and control. For extra hold, opt for a medium-hold pliable styling paste instead. Men with an oval, square, or pear face shape with thick straight hair will wear this style well.

This brushed-up spiky hair + tapered quiff shape style resembles an undercut. The difference is in the blending through the thick sides. Try OSiS Grip for extra style support while blowdrying.

#69: Brushed Up Crew Cut
This brushed-up crew cut haircut is great on hair with a very coarse texture or hair that is extremely thick. Try Bed Head B for Men Power Play Firm Finish Gel. It provides control without flaking. Gel works better on brush-up with a thick texture. This is because gels offer more control and structure to stubborn hair textures.
#70: Thick Surfer Hair with an Undercut
This thick surfer hair with an undercut is a super simple long style for thick hair. It also works well on men with straight hair texture. Add a shaved line to create a thick undercut with a hard part style. Split hair slightly (don’t create an obvious side part) over one eye rather than right down the middle. Stay away from parting the hair in the middle. That tends to say “geek” rather than “chic.”
#71: Deep Side Part Combover
This is a deep side part combover on coarser hair. This thick style is parted deep to one side, giving it tons of touchable lift and a high-stakes cut. Try Redken for Men Loose Ends Liquid Pomade. It gives longer lengths a mild, flexible finish. For extra control, add a bit of medium or high-hold aerosol hairspray.
#72: Neat and Brushed Forward Crew Cut
This neat and brushed forward crew cut is ultra-dense dark hair. It’s styled close to the head for a polished, clean-cut finish. Grab OSiS Gelastic for a firm hold with a high-shine finish.

The two lengths can then be blended with texturizing scissors.
