Looking for a trendy hairstyle? Check out these 5 types of buzz-cuts!


Men’s hairstyle has evolved over the years. The time when all the men went for one mainstream haircut are now long gone. Men nowadays are opting for bold hairstyles. A taper fade, the spiky flat top, textured haircuts are just a few to name. It seems like different haircuts never existed but with today’s men opting for newer styles, these haircuts have made it to the list of latest fashion for men.

The best hairstyle for men is difficult to define from the numerous trends that have come in, but, one particular style that is gaining popularity amongst men is the buzz-cut. If you are looking for a short and trendy hairstyle, the buzz-cut is the perfect one you can go for. However, the work is not done yet. It is not just a buzz-cut, further there are variations to it and each one can opt according to their preferences.

But before we have a look at the different types of buzz-cuts, let us understand the meaning of the term ‘number’ in this context. The number means the guard on the clipper/trimmer. Each buzz-cut has a numerically recognized guard to it which determines the result of the trim.

1. The Induction Cut :

It is the shortest haircut and is inspired from the family of military recruits. To get the induction buzz-cut, instruct the hairstylist to get rid of the guard on his trimmer. This haircut helps you achieve a uniform length of hair throughout without shaving your head off completely.

This one goes one-step ahead of the induction cut. This requires the guard to be of the number #1 or #2. You can always sport this look with a little stubble for a mature look with this Sandpaper style.

5. The High and Tight Cut :

This is one other bold haircut to go for. The high and tight style works well for shorter lengths of hair. The back and sides are trimmed using the #3 or#4 and the rest of the scalp is trimmed with #1 or #2. This haircut plays around the contrasting lengths of the hair and is the most versatile style of buzz-cut. It is the perfect hairstyle for people with shorter face shapes.
