    A Mens Hairstyle that Never Goes Out of Style

    Phelps arrives in Beijing without his signature hair style

    Michael Phelps swam the butterfly into his 8th Olympic Gold medal, with the hottest of mens hair styles today . . . the buzz cut!  But, Phelps arrived in Beijing with a shaggy hair cut, facial hair and his big winning smile a bit of a disappointment for me anyway.  But, when he hit the pool he raced with his traditional buzz cut and a clean-shaven face.

    Michael Phelps gave mens hair styles a setback when he arrived in Beijing

    Ladies, I don’t have to tell you that with his perfect 6’4”/195lb body and boyish good looks, any haircut is going to look good!  A buzz cut is simply a cool cut all year-long, no matter what sport a guy is hooked on.  For any guy that wants a short, low-maintenance mens hair style, the buzz cut is the quickest and easiest haircut possible.

    This haircut will also be the quickest drying style. Anyone can cut a buzz cut with clippers and a guard (usually between ¼ to ½ inch).  Just run the clippers all over the head and trim in front of the ears and along the neckline.  To achieve a masculine hairline, try to go for more of a square shape along the neckline, rather than rounded one. Most women will agree, this haircut is simply a great looking mens hair style. It tends to bring out the masculine features of the face as it makes the face look more defined and the jaw appear wider.

    This style is also worn by some men to conceal thinning. Some male celebrities wear a crew cut or buzz cut that has been treated with a darker color on the top. From members of the armed forces, athletes, rescuers, rock stars and the cute guy next door, buzz hair cuts are all around us.

    Congratulations to Michael Phelps, who sacrificed his longer haircut, for speed as he swam the butterfly in the American’s World Record win of the 4x100m medley relay and closed out the swimming completion at the Water Cube. For more great looks check out our Pinterest Men’s Hair Board.

    1. For almost all men, the buzz cut will always be the most attractive and easiest cut for a guy to wear. Most guys cannot wear their hair long, whether they are losing their hair or due to the how horrible the hair grows out. Its so rare to see a guy with long hair that looks great.
