low maintenance mens haircuts at cochrane co salon in London

As much as we all wish we had at least an hour to style our hair in the morning, the chances are that you’re in a rush. However, you don’t want to look like you just got out of bed and didn’t put any effort in. Especially if your first stop is at the office. Luckily, there are several low-maintenance haircuts for men that you can choose from to suit your head shape, style and preferences. Let’s take a look at your options.

What Are The Easiest Men's Haircuts To Maintain?

We narrowed down the list of some of the easiest haircuts for men to maintain to a total of six. This should give you a bit of leeway and variety in terms of choosing a hairstyle that will not involve too much effort and not require too much time to get it looking sharp and stylish. Here are our top choices.

Buzz cut

Perhaps one of the most low maintenance short, simple men’s haircuts is the buzz cut. Why the name? It’s because the effect is achieved using electric clippers. These hairstyles are generally considered extra short and range from 1/16 to 5/8 of an inch long. This haircut requires no to very little styling. However, you should remember that upkeep will be necessary, depending on how quickly your hair grows. You can always try to keep it trimmed every couple of weeks yourself, but it’s always advisable to consult a professional for any hair related decisions you’d like to make. 

The Crew Cut Hairstyle

Formerly, the crew cut was the foray of university rowing teams. In practice, the cut features longer hair at the top, which then fades into a light taper at the neck. This one will require a professional to help you achieve the look as you don’t want to trim off a part that will take a while to grow out by mistake. Your hair consultant will be able to offer you different lengths of trimmer blade guards. The beauty of this style is that it can be styled into a quiff at the top, which is another low maintenance style to consider if you have a few minutes to do this. 

Tapered Hairstyles For Gents

Next up, we have the taper haircut. It’s growing in popularity all over and there’s a good reason for this. This low maintenance haircut starts out short at the neck and then gradually grows in length the closer to the crown of your head. All that you’d really need to do is ensure that the top is styled. You can simply use your fingertips or a comb to get the desired effect. And even if you do nothing on the top, you’ll still have the “bedhead” look, which is also quite trendy.

Layered Men's Hair Ideas

The shaggy look is for longer hair types. This style requires some layering and once done, you can opt for that naturally unkempt look. Styling can involve little to no effort. If you do want to go the extra mile, you can always use salt spray or a light-hold paste. Apply this to damp hair and create a deliberately messy look. 

Shaved Hairstyles For Gents

On the other extreme of low maintenance hairstyles is the bald, completely shaved look. Many men like the look and there are numerous celebrities rocking it. Although it requires literally zero effort, you will want to keep in mind that to maintain it, you will need to continue shaving it as it grows. The frequency of shaves will depend on how quickly your hair grows. 

Long Hairstyles For Men

And lastly, we get to the long hair look. Leaving your hair to grow as long as possible means that all you’d have to do is brush it and put in a bun or ponytail, if that’s your thing. Regular maintenance will involve washing it with a shampoo and conditioner. But the rest is quite easy and it’s another trendy, low maintenance style to consider.
