Men’s Medium Haircuts

SHARE

Sometimes that not too long, not too short hair length is just right. Medium hair for men is longer than 2″ or something like that.

These medium men’s haircut tend to be long on top with short sides and back but don’t have to be. Some scissor cut looks keep a good amount of length at the sides and back. For guys wanting a lower maintenance look, sides can be short, faded or undercut.

While many of these medium men’s hairstyles are version of the slick back, pompadour or quiff, there are plenty of other cuts at this length. Longer versions of the trendy crop can be medium length and styled down into bangs or with some spikes. Side part hairstyles or comb overs are another easy to style option. And of course there are many ways to create a unique slicked back style by adding texture, a part or changing direction.
