The 14 Coolest Hair Designs for Men This Year

A hair design is any artistic pattern sheared onto short or shaved hair using haircutting tools like clippers and scalpel blades. Playing around with density and thickness, there are no limits to the designs you and your barber can create to level up your haircut!

Whether it’s composed of simple lines or intricate patterns, shaved designs are one easy way to get your own hair tattoo! Plus, you can get one on almost all types of haircuts – mohawk, undercut, braided, pompadour, or brushed back –  and still look incredibly cool. It’s an excellent trick to add fun to an old plain cut.

When getting a shaved hair tattoo, what should be first on your to-do list is to find a professional barber because the result entirely depends on your barber’s skills and creativity. Professional barber Bryan Chirinos puts on a show his wicked masterpieces and demonstrates the sublime contrast and flair that hair designs can offer!

Rapper Kanye West’s recent zebra-striped haircut this year is another example of how fresh and sharp you’ll be with a shaved design!

To help you decide which pattern to get, keep on scrolling for the most popular hair designs for guys right now.

Q&A with style creator, Charles Jones
Barber @ The Fadeaway Barbershop in Vineland, NJ

How would you describe this look?

This look is “creative-class”. I mean, it’s like an artist who is humble enough to be a student of the art, yet confident enough to speak proudly about their vision. The design is not too exaggerating, but it’s enough to make you look again. And that is my favorite thing about it.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Take advantage of the opportunity to be able to look back and say I put a “dope” feather design in my head by one of the best barbers I’ve ever known. In addition to that, this is a “ready-to-go” hairstyle, meaning you can use some leave-in conditioner or curling cream, brush the sides, and go.

This is a design that fits any face, head shape, personality, or lifestyle. I and my clients live the lifestyle of success.

Barber @ Axe to Grind Barbershop & Supply Co. in Worcester, MA

How would you describe this look?

This look is bold and trendy. It includes multiple techniques to make it one of a kind. My favorite thing about cuts like these is that it allows me a full range to freely express my artistic talent and it’s certainly outside of the norm. It’s also a barber’s way of upselling because these cuts are beyond average. Creating signature looks are your way of advertising when your clients walk out the door.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I’m always sure to ask how you style your hair at home! That’s the #1 question because I want to provide a service the customer can follow through with. You need to know that these types of styles require maintenance.
