If your big day is just a few weeks ahead, you’re likely to be more concerned about picking the best wedding suit and other “important” stuff. This is understandable. But get this: Your haircut is probably the key to feeling and looking your best, especially on your wedding day. And once you discover a perfect wedding haircut early, you can start buying the needed hair grooming tools you need. Such tools may include hair pomade, hair combing device, and Babyliss hair dryers. In the meantime, below are the 8 wedding haircut ideas you can start with.
1. Mid-Fade Pompadour
A Pompadour is a timeless haircut for men with long, voluminous hair. This style has evolved over time, multiplying in variations while retaining its predominant feature which is the “Pump”. To be clear, a “Pump” is a glossy and well-combed bush of hair above the forehead. It is styled away from the face and paired with a Fader or an Undercut. In the above image is a Pompadour paired with a Mid-Fader.
2. Wavy Traditional Quiff
Unlike the modern Quiff variations that are trendy and retro-looking, the traditional version is more professional and stylish. This is why the traditional Quiff is fast becoming a popular wedding haircut for grooms, especially when paired with the right wedding suit.
3. Undercut Slickback
An Undercut Slickback is ideal for grooms who want to look exceptional top-class and masculine. It is a combination of a long top hair that’s styled backward and an Undercut. This haircut doesn’t elongate the face, unlike most Undercuts. However, it creates an obvious distinction between the forehead and the two sides of the face.
4. Curly Fade
No matter who is wearing it, a curly hairstyle is sexy. However, the tricky part of men wearing curls is that they have to avoid looking overly feminine. But guess what, the masculinity of a Fader solves that problem. Add a Fader underneath your curls and you’ll have that “ying yang” balance of nature.
5. Side Part
A Side Part is a crown on the head of every perfect gentleman. It is edgy, bold, and stylish. While this haircut almost went out of trend in 2020, this year it’s back in the limelight along with other classic looks in a big way.
6. Man Bun
Let no man look hotter than you on your biggest day. Rock a Man Bun and pair it with a well-groomed beard. This is how some of the grooms are taking the lead on their wedding day this year.
7. Shoulder-Length Hair With Lineups
This year has been all about love and thunder. And many brides with long hair have been inspired to rock their hair as is, thanks to Mr. Thor. But this doesn’t mean going all-natural. If your hair is overly long, trim it to shoulder length and frame your face in clean lineups.
8. Undercut Buzz Cut
Coming last on the list is an Undercut Buzz Cut that can be paired with a full beard for a Viking look. This combination makes the face appear mature, bold, and youthful all at once. And when it’s all completed with neat lineups, the style becomes more edgy and stylish.
Hair lists like this one always come in handy whenever you need hair grooming ideas. But you should understand that it’s only a few of these recommended haircuts that will be perfect for you. For instance, if your hair is short and you’re 3 weeks to your wedding day, it may be impossible to grow your hair for a shoulder-length hairstyle. Also, if you have an oblong face shape, a Pompadour haircut will only elongate your face further and may, therefore, not be a good idea. So, remember to choose your haircut carefully.
