If you’re considering a clean shave, we recommend going for the “bald man with beard” look, as this not only makes a shorter beard more prominent but helps to give your face.
This is also one of those low-maintenance short, grey hairstyles that have become popular with older dads, as the clean-shaven look is a fountain of youth haircut that can really roll back the years.

The Buzz cut Haircut
The buzz cut is a great at-home haircut to hold you over until your next trip to the barbers. When thinking of a buzz cut, images of a military recruit may pop up to mind – but this hairstyle is far more versatile than it’s given credit for.
While there’s the standard induction buzz cut, a uniform grade all over haircut which is probably the safest haircut to practice with if it’s your first time, there are other variations of the buzz cut to try too.
The Crew Cut
This style involves the sides and back being tapered and being no longer than a quarter inch, while the top is left long, usually about an inch in height. It’s definitely an edgy look.
Unlike an induction buzz cut or crew cut, there is no uniform hair length with a fade. Rather, there’s a gradient effect from the top of the head to the sides with the longer hair blending into the skin as super short stubble. This makes it one of the more dynamic buzzcut hairstyles to go for.
Our Favourite Low-Maintenance Medium Length Haircuts
When it comes to low-maintenance haircuts, thick hair can also be accommodated. Hair doesn’t need to look like stubble to be manageable. There are several low-maintenance short, wavy hairstyles you can go for too.
The Taper Haircut
The taper haircut is a longer variation of the fade. Both create a gradient visual, but the taper haircut sees the hair at the top grow up to 4 inches, rather than the 1-2 inches recommended for a fade. A taper haircut also declines in length much more gradually than a fade and there isn’t such a dramatic difference in length between the sides and the top.
It’s a haircut that allows you to grow your hair out neatly without losing the dynamic nature of a fade.
The Undercut Haircut
The undercut is a haircut reintroduced into the cultural zeitgeist by period drama TV shows. For a look that’s as trendy as it is, it’s surprisingly easy to pull off from the comfort of your own home with your trimmer.
