Hair is such an important feature of any man. Whether it’s a classic fade or rugged long hair, a man’s hairstyle says a lot about who they are. But not all hairstyles are created equal. In fact, some are downright bad. Here is a list of the worst men’s haircuts of all time.
1. The bowl cut
This haircut was popular in the 90s and is making a comeback in the 2020s. But that doesn’t make it any less terrible. The bowl cut is essentially a short, blunt cut all around the head. It’s called a bowl cut because it looks like someone took a bowl and just cut around it. This haircut is bad news for anyone who wants to look remotely attractive. Unless you are the Beatles or Tyler The Creator, stay away from this style.
2. The mullet
The mullet is a classic bad haircut. It’s short in the front and long in the back. It’s often referred to as “business in the front, party in the back.” This style was popular in the 80s and early 90s and has been making a triumphant comeback in the past year. Unless you’re going for a specific retro look or you are an old-school hockey player, we recommend staying away from this style.
3. The rat tail
The rat tail is exactly what it sounds like: a long, thin strip of hair that hangs down the back of the head. This style was popular in the late 70s and early 80s, but we can’t imagine why. It’s an incredibly unattractive style that should be avoided at all costs.
4. Bleached Curly Hair
A style rocked by Justin Timberlake in the late 90s, this look is not for everyone. It’s a style that should only be attempted by those with naturally curly hair and it still shouldn’t be bleached. If you don’t have curly hair, we recommend avoiding this style.
5. The man bun
The man bun was a popular style in the early 2010s and some love it while others hate it. We tend to fall in the latter category. The man bun is essentially a top knot worn by men. It’s a style that can be pulled off by some, but it’s generally not a good look.
6. The Jersey Shore Haircut
This is a style made popular by the cast of the reality TV show Jersey Shore. It’s a very unique style that is essentially a shaved head with a line of hair down the middle. It’s a style that should only be attempted if you are looking to stand out from the crowd in a bad way.
7. The Trump Cut
This is a style made popular by our previous president, Donald Trump. It’s a comb-over that is meant to cover up a bald spot. But let’s be honest, it’s not fooling anyone. This style didn’t even look good for the president of The United States, so why would it look good on you?
8. The comb-over
The comb-over is similar to the Trump cut, but it’s not quite as bad. It’s a style that is often worn by older men who are trying to cover up their balding heads. But instead of fooling anyone, it just makes them look like they’re trying too hard, just go bald already.
9. The Bieber Cut
This is a style made popular by Justin Bieber in the early 2010s. It’s a level up from the bowl cut and features longer hair on top with shorter sides. It’s a style that should only be attempted by teenage boys who don’t know any better.
10. The man perm
This is a style that was popular in the 80s but has made a comeback in recent years. It’s essentially a perm for men. It’s a style that should only be attempted by those who are looking to make a statement. If you’re not sure if you can pull it off, we recommend avoiding it.
These are just some of the worst men’s haircuts of all time. So next time you’re thinking about getting a new haircut, think twice before going for one of these styles.
