1. Disheveled Yet Sophisticated Fringe
This textured fringe style screams bad boy, but it’s still sophisticated enough to keep you from looking like a punk. Low maintenance and stylish, this cut is sure to keep you looking trendy with little to no effort required.
2. High Fashion Gothic Fringe Haircut
Pushing the envelope is the name of the game for this style. It’s really about how edgy you’re willing to go in the name of fashion. High fashion trends are starting to trickle their way into mainstream hairstyles for men, so who knows? You could be one step ahead of the curve on this one.
3. Messy Pompadour
A fringe with good texture is an absolute classic, which is why we’re bringing back this messy pompadour look. It’s an oldie but goodie, so if you’re aren’t hip to high fashion or the latest trends, then this may be the perfect look for you. Channel your inner rockabilly!
4. Asymmetrical Angles
Sharp angles with no layers make for a very intriguing look, which pairs nicely with high cheekbones or chiseled features. Not many men can pull this look off, but those who can are sure to stand out from the crowd!
5. Punk Rock Flirt
Breaking the mold and going against the grain are all core tenants of the punk rock movement. Fringe bangs on men, especially in this style, are a great way to flirt with the punk rock principles without fully investing in it.
6. Long Side Fringe Haircut
Choosing the right hairstyle is an integral part of this process. With this hairstyle, you’ll look like you have better things to do than fix your hair, but your hair will still look great. How does he do it?
7. 18th Century Classic Fringe
If the 50s aren’t really your cup of tea, then maybe you should try going back a little further. This is a modern take on a distinctively 18th-century hairstyle. The curled fringe adds personality to an otherwise conservative choice. Side bangs make for a great way to frame the face and eyes.
8. Curly Fringe
Everyone knows that curly fries are better than regular fries. The same holds true for curly fringe vs. regular fringe. This style is a great way to combine curly hair with a sleek look to keep your cheekbones visible. We definitely love a look that allows the natural hair texture to show through.
9. Modern Bowl Cut
The traditional bowl cut hairstyle has a bit of a bad rap but is making a comeback with its modern version. Styled the right way, this fringe style keeps the look interesting yet simple, messy yet controlled. The simpler the cut the less maintenance it requires as well!
10. Controlled Curly Fringe Haircut
If you’re looking to make your face appear longer and thinner, this style is the best way to do it. Similar to the curly fringe hairstyle a few cuts back, this look may require a little more hair gel. Regardless, the curls will not detract from your angled features; they will actually enhance them. Boyish yet sophisticated are the main highlights of this men’s fringe haircut.
11. Downplayed Fringe Haircut
This is a very traditional, somewhat conservative fringe hairstyle that doesn’t immediately scream, “I have a fringe!” This allows you to follow the fringe trend and look fashionable. Keeping the look messy is a great touch.
12. Extra Long Fringe Haircut
This fringe is so long that you could almost tie it in a top knot. The sides are buzzed off for a rough and edgy look while the long fringe goes to show that you know how to take care of your appearance. We love a style that looks like it took half an hour to perfect but actually needed just 5 minutes.
13. Boyish Charm Fringe Haircut
This look is messy and sweet, with a little edge that implies you might be related to Peter Pan. With the right attitude paired with this fringe, the possibilities are virtually endless on what you can accomplish. Short, disheveled, but still put-together describes this ‘do perfectly.
14. The Efron-Bieber Combo Haircut
Some of the most popular male celebrities either have this hairstyle or have had it in the past. It’s a good wavy look that takes minimal effort to pull off. A men’s fringe haircut doesn’t have to be sleek or angular; it can be rugged and wild and still carry a fashionable weight to it.
15. Forward Thinking Fringe Haircut
The side fringe is a very good way of bringing an interesting dimension to any haircut. Brushing the hair forward from the back also adds another element to this style. This is another classic cut that takes its inspiration from older men’s fringe haircut styles.
16. Wind-Blown Hairstyle
The off-center tilt of this handsomely disheveled look will complement an asymmetrical face while drawing attention to what is probably one of our best features: the eyes. Let this textured fringe style inspire you!
17. Wavy Fringe
Don’t be fooled; there’s a lot more going on with this wavy hairstyle than meets the eye. It is fairly unassuming and moderate but it stays fashionable and keeps texture, texture, texture at the forefront of it all. This is also a low maintenance look for the man-on-the-go.
18. K-Pop Fringe Haircut
Taking inspiration from Korean pop stars, this men’s fringe haircut is well put together without much room for mistakes. Shadowing the eyes with the side fringe allows the rest of the facial features to stand out nicely.
19. Business Casual Fringe Haircut
Carefully sectioned-off pieces of hair frame the face and add a bit of mystery. It is almost too long for a business environment, but pushing the line is all part of the fun here. Keeping the fringe long and sleek allows the wearer of this style to remain well-groomed and fashionable.
20. Short Beach Waves Bangs
Typically, when you say “beach waves” in association with a hairstyle you think long, bleached-blond hair. In this case, the hair is a bit shorter and it isn’t very blond, but the waves are definitely still there. Waves evoke movement and flow, which works brilliantly for this men’s fringe haircut.
21. Undercut with Bangs
Undercutting long hair makes the hair on top appear thicker and makes for an intriguing combination. Wear it down or pulled back in a man bun for a versatile look. It’s an easy way to style the hair and almost any great fringe can be paired with an undercut to add a little drama.
22. Bold French Crop
The French crop hairstyle is bold and dynamic, and the symmetrical look gives it an air of rigidity. The slight texture gives this hairstyle great personality. This fringe bangs style requires little to no maintenance, and you won’t have to spend much time in the morning perfecting your hair.
23. Slicked-Over Fringe Haircut
You’ve heard of slicked back hair, now get ready for slicked-over. Perfect for straight hair, this cool look is slick and sophisticated (did we mention slick?), and while it may require a bit of maintenance, it is well worth it. Sharp edges create an interesting look against smooth features.
24. Messy French Crop
Similar to the
25. Medium Bob
Women aren’t the only ones who can make a fringe work, just like they aren’t the only ones who can make a bob cut work. This style can easily be pulled back and away from the face for a more open look or left down with the extra-long fringe hanging in a mysterious manner.
26. The Debonair Swoop
As dramatic as it is elegant, this bold undercut with a fringe worn to the side leaves little to be desired. It’s almost as if a young Patrick Swayze walked into a hair salon nowadays and asked them to take a little off the sides.
27. Short Tousled Hair
A textured side fringe worn the right way will make for a relaxed yet put together look. This cut can work for men in almost all walks of life, and the best part is you don’t have to worry much about styling. Just run your fingers through your hair when you’re ready to go!
28. Pointed Fringe Haircut
29. Textured Crop
Take advantage of your natural curls (or get yourself some good styling gel) and have fun with a
30. Shy Faux Hawk
Aren’t ready to commit to a faux hawk, but still like the way it looks? We understand, which is why we suggest this tapered cut that includes a pointed fringe. It’s edgy and a bit punk without going too far.
31. Flat Faux Hawk
Yet another option for the hesitant punk who isn’t looking to make too many waves. This is a great textured hairstyle that doesn’t require much work. You always have the option of gelling this hair up into the well-known faux hawk profile, or you can leave it loose and relaxed.
32. Tapered Crop
We love a good hairstyle with texture. This one has plenty, and the crisp edges make for an appealing look. The fade on the sides adds an edgy factor to an otherwise moderate hairstyle. Keep it simple to bring out your eyes!
33. Harry Styles UK Fringe Haircut
Messy yet still put together; that’s probably how some people would describe Harry Styles. He isn’t into teenybopper looks anymore though, which is why he rocked this great fringe ‘do. The sides and back are longer, but not too long.
34. Sharp Edges and Angles
It’s all about the gel, gel, and more gel! Some hairstyles look overworked with a lot of product, but others, like this one, require it. The sharp edges and angles are enough to make you stand out of a crowd, not to mention the dramatic difference between the short and long hair.
35. Curls on Top
It’s all about working with what you have and knowing exactly how to make it look good. Curly hair all-around can sometimes be overbearing, but curls just on top look handsome and sharp. Match that with faded sides and you’ve got one great ‘do.
36. Angular Fringe Haircut
This hairstyle will take any man’s hair and give it volume and texture, which are two things you absolutely must-have for an interesting cut. Bangs swept to one side are definitely trending, so why not get in on this latest fashion?
37. Long Hair Don’t Care
Okay, it’s not exactly long hair. It’s short hair with bangs, but that’s close enough, right? The maintenance of this style is remarkably low, so it’s a great option for any man looking to up his style game while keeping it simple at the same time. Textured bangs fade into shorter hair on the sides.
38. Waves on Waves
If you have naturally wavy hair, let that shine through! Don’t weight it down with products trying to get a sleek look, embrace the texture! Controlled chaos looks so much better than smothered chaos in our opinion. A fringe that long perfectly frames the eyes too.
39. Stacked Waves
Bringing the fringe to the side allows the naturally wavy hair to stack in an appealing way. The buzzed sides bring the eyes upward while the fringe brings the eyes back down, which makes for a very intriguing style. Keep it light on the product – this is a wonderfully low maintenance cut.
40. All-Around Fringe Haircut
Keeping the fringe roughly the same length as the rest of your hair makes for a very carefree style. You don’t have to worry too much about where the hair is falling with this ‘do – just kind of let it do its own thing.
41. Pointed Pompadour
This pompadour hairstyle look is reminiscent of Elvis Presley, but it also contains a bit of an edge that Elvis didn’t have. The fringe coming down to a point nicely compliments the short sides as both are somewhat blunt.
42. Side-Swept Curls
We’re a sucker for a good side fringe. If you know how to tame your curls then this style is perfect for you! It’s a nice round, soft look that pairs well with the tapered sides. Nothing about it is too extreme, but it’s still a trendy look for anyone that wants to try out a fringe.
43. Flock of Seagulls
This reminds us of a modern take on the 80s hairstyle, the Flock of Seagulls. We think it’s just bold enough and wild enough to fit well among the more extreme fringe styles. This cut will look good with or without hairspray.
44. Blunt Crop
Yes, we love texture, but sometimes, less is more. The very small amount of texture in this hairstyle creates a simply elegant crop that is inching its way toward high fashion. It’s still a wearable style, and the faded sides keep it distinctly modern.
45. Wave-Filled Crop
Forget product, forget styling! Just roll out of bed and look flawless with this wave-filled crop cut. Effortless looks good on anyone, but it looks especially good on men with fringes. This hairstyle blends together perfectly for a look with almost no hard edges.
46. Small Bangs
Bangs for men don’t have to cover the whole forehead. As a matter of fact, if you’re dealing with short hair combined with bangs, it’s better if the bangs are a little more angular with less coverage.
47. Beach Bum Bangs
This is a classic look for someone who spends a lot of time on the beach or in the sun. The fringe is a little sparser than some of the other styles we’ve seen, but the beach tends to do that to you. Let the ocean waves decide where your hair will lie with this relaxed cut.
48. Tousled Fringe Haircut
This haircut definitely looks like you could run your fingers through it and have it come out looking just as good. The sides are on the longer side, but not too long, so the fringe is still the center of attention.
There you have it, the coolest hairstyles for men who are interested in trying out a fringe. We’re not saying that you have to try one of these hairstyles, but we’re also not saying you shouldn’t. Whether you want to go simple, high fashion, retro, or something completely wild, always ‘do you!
It’s always nice to try something new, so if you liked this list why not share this with a friend who may be looking for a change too? And also let us know which of these styles are your favorites!
