Types of Men's Haircut you can get at our Zurich barber location
Different haircuts for men emerge every time. This is because clients are always looking for unique and exquisite styles. Thus, skilled barbers take their time to create unique styles. Gone are the days when men's haircuts are limited to length, i.e., how long or short you want them to be. In recent times, there are many trendy hairstyles out there.
Knowing the type of haircut you want is one essential secret to getting the most out of your barbering experience. Here are some haircut collections that are available at our barbershop in Zurich.
One of the haircuts you can get at our barbershop is the classic haircut. They are called classics because they are timeless and never go out of trend. They are quite easy to style, and they look great with any look. Hair trends could be good at the moment, but nothing compares to the stability that classic haircuts offer.
The haircuts mentioned here are staples among all haircuts, and they never go out of style. Here are some classic haircuts you can go for:
The slick back
No cut speaks class and elegance like the slick back style. It has been in vogue as far back as the 1920s and is still making statements to this day. Even though you can get this style by growing out your hair, going for an undercut makes it more prominent. It is a versatile style that is suitable for all face shapes. Yet, it complements longer or rectangular face shapes the most. The most suitable hair type for this style is straight hair; curly hair can be a bit complicated to tame. Besides, you will need a lot of glossy styling products to keep this cut in shape. The slick back hairstyle draws attention to every facial feature. Thus, those with receding hairlines should avoid going for this style.

The buzz cut
On the list of classic hairstyles at our Swiss barbershop is the buzz cut, also known as the induction cut. The reason for the name "buzz cut" is because of the sound the clipper makes when the barber is working on the haircut. This haircut has been in vogue over the years because it draws attention to the face. But, you need to be careful with this style because it does not complement all types of face shapes. It only fits those with square or oval face shapes. Because only people with these face shapes can rock hairstyles with little to no length. The best thing about this style is that you do not need to invest in any styling products to rock this look.

Different types of side parting have been in vogue over the years. The great thing about this style is that it can give you a mature and young look all at the same time. The side parting is versatile. This means it complements all face shapes and works well on different textures of hair. The hairstyle takes effort to maintain because you need to maintain the parting line. To ensure the parting line remains smooth, you should visit the barbershop at least once in two weeks. The denseness or thickness of your hair determines the type of styling products you will use. If you tilt towards the dense part, you can use a paste. But, clay is suitable for those with thin hair.

As the white T-shirt is a versatile outfit in the fashion world, so also is the French crop in the men’s haircut world. In other words, this haircut complements various face shapes. This haircut is low-maintenance as you do not need to invest in any styling products. Because of this, it is suitable for any sporting activity. But, if you are the type that cannot do without using styling products, you can apply a small amount of hairspray. The maintenance of the French crop cut is not in its styling but in getting it trimmed once every three weeks.

Shoulder length cut
The shoulder-length cut is one of the versatile classic cuts suitable for all occasions. It is quite easy to do as the hardest work lies in you growing out your hair. Once your hair grows to a certain length you want, your barber then adds some layers to it. Your barber could give you a slick and laid-down style or give you a messy top look. However, you should discuss the look you are going for with the barber so you won't get the wrong cut for an occasion. The texture of your hair determines how this cut will look on you. Very curly or straight hair can be difficult to maintain; it works well with a subtly wavy mane. The best thing about this style is that it is low-maintenance. You do not need too many products to care for your hair. The reason for that is that the style looks great when it is in its natural state.

The Pompadour haircut has been in vogue since the 1750s. From the onset, the haircut is feminine. But, as hundreds of years pass, a lot of changes have come to the style, thus making it a classy and elegant style for men. It works on almost all face shapes. However, the style of pompadour cut you go for depends on your face shape. For this style, you have to grow your front hair out first, then your barber will cut your hair into a graduated top. Every time you go for a trim at the salon, the barber will not only trim the front hair but will also trim the graduated top.

The quiff is a versatile style that is suitable for different face shapes and styles. It is not as polished as the pompadour haircut. However, it is not suitable for those with receding hairlines as it can draw attention to the forehead. When you go for a cut at The Good Barbers, your barber will discuss with you whether you want a timeless or modern look. For a classic look, the barber will cut your side and back hair low subtly; this will make the difference between short and long hair quite soft. But, if you are going for a contemporary quiff, have it in mind that the difference between short and long hair will be quite obvious. This is because the barber will give it a sort of disconnected touch. Maintaining this cut is quite easy, as you only need a strong-hold hairspray or mousse to keep it in shape.

Fade haircuts are another type of haircut you can get at our barbershop. They are very versatile, which means that anybody can rock this cut. Besides, they are slowly becoming a classic, which means the style will be in vogue for a while among sophisticated gents.
Here are some fade haircuts you can go for:
High fade haircut
One prominent thing about the high fade haircut is the sharp contrast between the fade and the hair. This hair is low-maintenance as it does not need styling products since it is cut so low. Even though those with short hair can rock this look the most, the cut is rapidly becoming a go-to style for men regardless of their hair length. Besides, it works well with all hair types, lengths, and textures.

Mid fade haircut
Another cut in the fade world is the mid-fade haircut. This hairstyle is less boring compared to low fade but not as grand as the high fade haircut. Many men go for mid-fade haircuts because of the versatility they offer. Unlike the low fade haircut, where the cut starts just above your ears, the mid-fade haircut goes a bit higher as it starts along your temple. You can pair this cut with a long haircut such as the pompadour or with a short cut such as a buzz cut. Besides, this haircut goes with all textures and types of hair.

Low fade haircut
If you are just venturing into the world of fades, then you might like to start with the low fade haircut. This haircut is suitable for men that want to maintain their natural look while getting a nice haircut. The barber will only cut the hair at the back of your head and slightly above your ears. While it is a versatile haircut that any man can rock, it greatly complements those with pineapple or triangular head shape.

The undercut fade is sort of a combination of both the undercut and the fade haircut. This combination produces a contemporary haircut that can be styled for any occasion. Normally, the undercut haircut is characterized by the clear difference between short hair at the sides and long hair at the front. But when you combine the undercut with the fade haircut, the difference becomes soft and subtle. Any type of fade haircut can be combined with an undercut regardless of the length of the front hair.

The temple fade haircut has been in vogue since the 90s. This haircut is quite common among black men who have afro hair or tight curls. However, it has slowly taken place among the classic and popular haircuts that anyone can rock. The prominent feature of the temple fade is the sharp line that is made at the temple of your head. This sharp line can only be created by an experienced barber, so make sure you visit our barbershop for this elegant haircut.

Just like in an undercut fade, a taper fade is a combination of both the taper and the fade haircut. Although the taper haircut and the fade haircut seem to be quite similar, they are different in diverse ways. The taper haircut is characterized by long hair at the top of your head, then buzz cuts at the sides and back of your head. However, these buzz cuts are made progressively. Introducing a fade into the taper haircut will give you a neat cut with no skin exposed. So, if you want to change your look subtly, you can go for this haircut.

Even though most men's haircuts are made with clippers, some men are still wary of using clippers. In cases like this, the barber uses a pair of scissors to give them a fade haircut. The fade made with scissors is kind of soft and subtle compared to all the other fades. So if you want a less dramatic fade, go for this look.
