And indeed, there is an array of hairstyles for men that have not only made their way through but have also transformed to adapt to the modernisation of times.

Now, you might be thinking “Which one?”, because my brother, the list might be overwhelming. So to help you wrap your head around it, we have listed below our TOP 3 TIMELESS HAIRSTYLES FOR MEN that you can easily pull off.
The Dapper Side-Part Style
This hairstyle is just as timeless and classic as Sean Connery in his James Bond films. This combination of the Dapper style and a side part leaves no room for the word mess. Embodying a sophisticated, polished and neat appearance, while worn with charm and confidence, this hairstyle will definitely bring out your natural suave.
To sport the dapper side-part style, a good quality pomade applied to slightly damp hair will do the work. Use a rat-tailed comb, if none, the fine-toothed comb will work just fine to create a distinct side part, and then slick back the longer portion of your hair. This style will look great on both formal events and everyday office wear, offering a timeless appeal that will never be missed out.
The Modern Classic Undercut Style
Here’s another classic from the closet – the undercut. Although as modern as it may have appeared to be, this timeless hairstyle is rooted in the 20th century. Yes, you read it right, sometime between the 1920s and the 1930s the undercut rose to popularity. However, the boldness of this style appears to challenge the conventional gentlemen grooming style back then, until it found its way to the military circle in the ‘40s and ‘50s; to being the symbol of Punk Rock culture in the ‘80s. Now, the undercut hairstyle has come through, maintaining its iconic close-cropped sides and back, it has adapted to the modern era by experimenting with the top part with various styles.
To rock the undercut, apply a matte hair wax for a more natural finish. Use your fingers to style the longer top section into a textured and tousled appearance. This contrast of lengths adds a dynamic edge to the traditional short sides, making the undercut a top choice among stylish men of all ages.
The Timeless Crew Cut
Simplicity, practicality, and versatility are the prominent features of this hairstyle that fought its way through the century. Coined after its military roots, as often done in uniform amongst the troops or teams, hence the term “crew”. Over the years it has evolved into a versatile and timeless hairstyle that combines conventional with contemporary.
The classic crew cut features short sides and back with a slightly longer top that is usually cut in a straight line from the forehead that is typically evenly trimmed which can be achieved using a quality clipper, creating a neat and uniform appearance. You may also style it with some faded sides and a little more length on top for some modern tweaks. This style requires no fuss with minimal styling products, making it the perfect hairstyle to go to for men with a fast-paced or active lifestyle.
Indeed, these 3 hairstyles have never gone out of style, and our prediction says – it will never be. Sure, it’s great to be able to ride with the current hair trends, because it’s fun; however, sticking to the classics also adds timelessness to your style.
