Hard part haircuts for guys are both classic and contemporary: A cut that’s traditional is given a hard, shaved part, for more of a modern take on things. The end result is a cut that’s sharp, stylish, and super flexible. Hard parts complement most popular men’s haircuts and all textures of hair. Here are a few of our favorite ways to rock hard part cuts for him.
Hard Part Comb Over
A comb over is a classic style, where you can wear the hair long and brush it over or back to keep things neat. Adding in the hard part can make this style seem a touch more modern.
Hard Part Quiff
A quiff is a great style for guys who like to have a bit of hair to style, but quiffs can seem sort of scruffy when grown out. One solution is to do the hard part with the quiff, contrasting the length on top with a tight cropped side. The quiff can then be styled off to the side or straight back, whichever you prefer.
Hard Part and High Fade
A high fade is a super low maintenance look for guys who like to look good with minimal styling time. Adding in the hard part here keeps the look contemporary without sacrificing the low-maintenance.
Hard Part Short Hair
It may be surprising, but you can also pair a hard part with a short look, such as buzzed or close-crossed. Short hair is practical, especially for guys with natural curls, but the look can feel boring. Why not jazz things up with a shaved-in hard part?
To get a hard part haircut, ask your stylist to shave the part with a razor or a trimmer. The hard part is typically shaved in on the side where your hair’s natural part lies. Your stylist can customize the look by going in tight or keeping the shave gradual. The thickness of your part can be varied too, so there are many ways you can personalize the hard part style.
Close-cropped is key to keeping this style looking fresh. Remember that the shaved part will grow in quickly. To keep the tight look, you’ll need to visit your stylist for regular touch-ups.
