Men’s haircut styles change every decade and lately men are embracing longer, voluminous hair. 2020 promises to stay true to this trend with undercuts and modern pompadours dominating the scene. Stylists say there are no signs of this trend ending soon. Below are the hottest men’s haircut styles for 2020.
Undercut VS Fade
Undercuts and fades have been in for the last couple years, so it’s important to note the difference between them. An undercut is very short on the sides and long at the top, keeping a high contrast in between. A fade is a style where the hair, well, fades gradually from the bottom up.

No doubt you’ve seen these before. Pompadours were first popular with greasers in the 1950s, but they’ve come back with a modern twist. A pompadour is characterized by hair that has been slicked back with a large puff in the front.
