Designed for short hair lengths, they are practical and comfortable. Many of them have proven themselves well as sports ones, because short hair does not go into the eyes, does not require styling or fixation, and does not interfere with any physical activity.
The trendy haircut, which is often seen among celebrities, hardly goes out of style and suits many types. The boxing haircut is designed not just for short, but for ultra-short hair. The back of the head and the area of the temples are trimmed to a length of 3 mm or below zero, and a length of 0.5-4 cm is left on the crown of the head. With this hairstyle, the face and head are completely open. This should be taken into account if the shape of the skull is not ideal, or there are scars, scars, birthmarks, bulging moles on the skin.
This option is categorically not suitable if you have wavy hair and a thin, elongated face.
It is more convenient and fastest to cut a box with a machine, but it is not always ideal on your own, if you want to professionally learn how to cut hair not only for men but also for women, then you are on the course “Barber stylists” at the Kapralova Academy. Smooth and smooth transitions are guaranteed only by the hands of an experienced barber. Save time, nerves and get a professional result.

Half box. Fashionable men’s haircuts 2020 – 2021
A semi-box, which differs from its short prototype by longer hair in the middle and at the temples (up to 8 cm). The hairstyle looks like a standard hedgehog, and the transition between the crown and the back of the head is smoother with the help of a typewriter. A technique with a gentle transition from short hair to longer hair is called fade and is often used in trendy men’s haircuts.
The half-box looks as minimalistic as the box, but thanks to the longer hair, it softens the facial features more and looks more delicate. Both options go well with a short, neat beard in a light unshaven style. However, if a box fits almost any face shape, then a half box will look advantageous with an oval, round, square face, but not triangular.
Crop haircut is for practical guys who will not bother with styling, but will simply run a comb over their hair a couple of times and run on business. The basis of the hairstyle is cleanly shaved to zero or extremely short (1.5-3 mm) temples and the back of the head with a smooth transition to a longer upper part.
The main feature of the crop is the bangs laid in front, which in some cases helps to visually correct the elongated face and high forehead. The bangs and the rest of the hair above the temples and the back of the head are cut so that the strands look exclusively forward. At the same time, the length and shape of the bangs can vary from short to medium. The most extreme option is when it is cut to the edge line.
Crop haircut is ideal for men with square, round and oval face shapes. With the right approach, a cropped haircut allows you to visually correct elongated facial features and hides a high forehead.
Cropped hair can be styled in different ways. Someone neatly combes them forward, someone prefers chaotic careless disheveledness. Feather texture is popular among young people, which can be achieved with the help of a styling product. But even without special styling, the crop will look stylish and self-sufficient.
Another name for this hairstyle is flat-top or, translated from English, “flat top”. The platform haircut is ideally combined with short, straight and coarse hair and is designed to give an image of brutality and masculinity. It is not for nothing that at the beginning of the twentieth century it was worn mainly by the military of the highest ranks, and in the cinema – by characters like the Terminator.
Such a haircut requires a lot of barber skill. The sides and back of the head are almost completely cut to an ultra-short hedgehog. But the main feature of the site is that the top of the head is cut exactly horizontally. Subject to the correct technique, the haircut looks like a perfectly flat “area”.
For men with a round face, a platform height of 4-5 cm is recommended – it will help to visually stretch the face and emphasize the cheekbones. It is better for owners of an oval face not to go beyond 2 cm. The platform is not suitable for men with a short neck – the clear geometry of the haircut will visually make it even shorter. The platform is suitable for gray hair, giving older men even more solidity.
The princeton haircut is a universal option for any age and appearance, and this haircut is also taught in hairdressing courses at the Kapralova Academy . Suitable for straight hair of any structure: thick, hard, soft, fine. But it will not look curly.
The hairstyle owes its name to the students of Princeton University, who always looked like a brand and had their hair cut by the best hairdressers. For this haircut, it is customary to leave a length of 2.5-5 cm at the crown, which gradually decreases towards the ears and back of the head without sudden changes.
If you have thick, dense hair that keeps its shape well, then you do not have to spend a lot of time styling. But with thin soft hair you will have to tinker and be sure to use styling products for styling.

Haircuts for medium hair
The longer the hair, the more options for men’s haircuts the barbershop will offer you. See the coolest model haircuts for medium length hair this season and come to Kapralova Academy as a model for free haircuts, styling and hair coloring.
A beautiful men’s undercut hairstyle has not gone out of fashion for many years now, and for good reason. It owes its popularity to its versatility and a large number of styling methods that allow you to express and emphasize individuality. The only “but”: such a hairstyle will not suit men with curly hair, and if the master decides to cut curls this way, you will need a lot of effort on daily styling.
Anderkat is the best option for those who have receding hairline. Trimmed sides, accentuated frontal part with back styling or overhanging elongated bangs will help correct deep frontal bald patches. For the effect of shifting the emphasis from the sides to the top of the hairstyle to work, it is important that the hair is thick, dense and massive.
This haircut is based on a combination of short-cropped or shaved hair on the sides and elongated strands on the crown, in the back of the head and in the bangs with a clear border between zones of different lengths. The hair at the top of your head can be styled however you like, depending on your mood and situation.
Some men grow their hair longer and use styling products to lift it up to complement the undercut with a light imitation of a mohawk. If you like creative youth options, try a curly haircut of the temples, a straight-shaven parting or a hair tattoo – now the patterns on the hair are at the height of fashion. Short stubble and light unshaven hair are also ideal companions for an undercut haircut.
Canadian or in a fashionable “under the Fritz”
This haircut resembles an undercut in many ways, but its main feature is a soft, almost imperceptible transition from short hair at the temples and back of the head to long strands at the crown and in the area of the bangs. By the way, you can fantasize with bangs – for example, the oblique asymmetric fits perfectly into the youth style. Men with receding hairline are advised to comb their bangs back.
To give an elegant brutality, you can use hair gel, and with its help to achieve the effect of “sleek”. This option visually inherits the traditions of military-style haircuts, popular in the 40s. Ideal for blonde hair, so if you are blonde with stiff, thick hair, this hairstyle is for you.
There are different types of Canadian:
Classic: volume is created on the upper part of the head, which gradually decreases as it approaches the crown. The hair on the temples and the back of the head is cut as much as possible.
Sports: the hair is cut as short as possible, and the nape and temples are worked out with a machine with a 1 mm nozzle.
Canadian for elongated curly hair: the basis for it is the same classic Canadian, but due to the special structure of curly hair, the technique changes somewhat – the curls are cut with scissors and are divided into thin strands during the haircut process for greater convenience.
The Canadian is considered a universal hairstyle: it will look good on a man of any age and status. The variety of styling options makes it suitable for all occasions. Also, with its help, a skilled craftsman will be able to improve a round or square face, giving more volume to the upper part of the hairstyle. For the owner of an oval-shaped face, any variation of a Canadian medium length is suitable.
Another model haircut for men with medium hair. The British woman is a classic, because she has been firmly entrenched in the life of stylish men since the 50s of the last century. It will suit you if:
You want to look elegant, stylish and at the same time a little casual.
You have a fairly thick head of hair, dense hair and no receding hairline.
You are ready to spend about 5 minutes a day styling your hair.
It is not difficult for you to use styling products and you know what you need for what.
The British technique is very simple: first, the master shortens the hair on the back of the head with a typewriter and cuts the temples. The bangs remain long and are most often combed back like a mohawk so that the volume of the hairstyle visually appears larger. In cases where a man plans to comb his bangs on the side, the master leaves a shorter length on one side. British is perfect for fine hair, and if you have thick curly hair, you can thin it out by thinning the strands.
Fashionable men’s haircuts 2020 – 2021 is a square!
From celebrities, this hairstyle was once worn by Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and other sex symbols. A bob haircut is ideal for those with a round face, as it can make it visually more elongated and thinner. The square will also soften hard facial features, narrow wide cheekbones and solve the problem of protruding ears.
There are several types of bob haircuts. The double is cut in two tiers, from above – as with a classic square, on the back of the head the hair is longer. The difference can be both very minor and radical, when the lower layer of hair reaches the shoulders or shoulder blades, but this option is more often used by women. The main function of a double bob is to add volume to fine, soft hair.
A bob with shaved temples is most often chosen by men with curly and thick hair in order to reduce the volume of the hairstyle and look more severe and masculine. By the way, shaved whiskey can look pretty creative and sexy when decorated with a variety of geometric patterns and lines.
A graduated square is carried out in layers: the elongated part is at the back of the head, at the crown the hair is cut a little shorter. As a result, the hairstyle looks casual and sexy.
A bob with a parting in the middle is suitable for men with a not very elongated face and lush voluminous hair. The image looks restrained and elegant – the very thing for lovers of business style.
Haircuts for long hair
Beautiful long hair is by no means a woman’s prerogative. With long hair, a man can look both romantic and brutal. Long hair is an opportunity to walk with a ponytail or a pigtail, or simply loose hair over the shoulders, like Jason Momoa. We offer the most popular hairstyles for long hair this season.
Topknot bun haircut
As if created for long hair, although it can be combined with an undercut haircut if desired. This hairstyle looks good on blonde hair and is suitable for:
for men with straight hair;
for men with deep frontal depressions who want to disguise them.
The haircut scheme is simple: the whiskey is completely shaved or cut very short, and the remaining long strands of hair on the crown and back of the head are gathered with an elastic band in a ponytail or bun. In fact, this is the same undercard, only extended. Or, as they also call it, a male bun with cropped temples – top knot. To tie a bun, the hair length must be at least 10-15 cm. In the 2019-2020 season, a men’s bun has become a real trend, associating with the majority of the image of a hipster (especially in combination with a beard) and an urban samurai.
It is not difficult to quickly tie and correctly lay the bundle:
First, wash your hair well.
After washing, dry them with a styling product (although you can do without it).
Comb your hair well, and then comb it back and gather in a ponytail without pulling it all the way. The bundle can be placed both on the back of the head and on the top of the head, the main thing is not to lower it too low.
Secure the bundle with styling gel.
