Get the Best Back to School Hair

Aug 23rd 2017

When you’re heading back to school, you want to look your best. From new clothes to fresh kicks, walking into the classroom with your head held high is important. That’s why it’s essential that before you get your backpack and books, you get a stylin’ haircut.

Choosing the best haircut can be tough, but one thing that can help a lot is going to a great barber. At State Street Barbers in Chicago, our professional barbers and stylists have years of experience, and they’ll be able to help you choose the best style for your face shape and lifestyle. You can also look to popular haircuts if you want to bring in some ideas and get input from your barber.

Here are some popular men’s haircuts we’re seeing everywhere.

The Undercut

The Undercut style is when hair is left longer on top, with short back and sides. It’s almost shaved on the sides, which makes the top of the hair look fuller. It looks great slicked back or spiked up, or even worn as a fauxhawk. It also looks good when left down and messy, making it the ideal haircut for a student on the go.

The Classic Haircut

This timeless style looks good on virtually any face shape, and barbers know just how to tailor it to your specifications. It can be slicked down for a dressier look, or worn with a little bit of product to shape it.

The High Fade Pompadour

With closely shaved sides and a tall, voluminous pompadour top, this look is for a more daring man, but on the right person, it’s a statement-maker.

Medium Length Fade

This is a combination of the undercut and the classic haircut, featuring a subtle fade with longer hair on the top.

How Often to Cut Your Hair

Men’s haircuts grow fast, and in order to look your best, it’s suggested that you get a trim every two to four weeks. Your barber can help advise you on when is best for you to stop in.
