How to Match Your Haircut With Your Look

A haircut can complement a man in many ways, especially in their overall style/look. Matching your haircut with your style and fashion taste can make the two complement each other really well!

In this week’s edition of #BarberTalk by New York Barbers, we discuss how you can pair your style with the right haircut!

Disclaimer: These are just suggestions. This doesn’t mean any other haircut and fashion pair will not work – there are too many to list, but these are some good options we have for you!

Classy (Suit & Tie) 

For formal attire, the general idea would be a sharp, slick hairstyle – and we agree. Why? Well, it’s just “fitting”!

A suit is clean, sharp and classy. Matching your hairstyle with that is the icing on the cake.

Something that is neatly trimmed, but not severely short works really well.

You can even keep some length through the sides and slick them back (as seen below) or if you like it short, a #2 is a good length on the sides or a #1 if you like it shorter.

Keeping length on top will allow you to push it over to the side for a clean look or even slick it back. It can still suit in a causal setting when you need it to as well!

Avoid undercuts, ‘shaved in parts’ or super short fades as they do not grow out well and you want something that will last you! Opt to blend it all in, especially if you wear a suit and tie to work. If you like a parting, go for a natural part. 

If you like the top shorter and a little "tousled up", just make sure it is blended in and not an undercut or shaved in line - this will help maintain a neat & professional look.


Right in between. We recommend something that is neat for the Classy Half of the Classy-Casual look but can be worn in a more laid-back manner for the casual half.

Short on the sides work well. For the top, something with a bit of length that has some texture in it works great, as it still is neat but can be worn slick, or with more movement in it for the relaxed look. Check out the examples below.


As the vibe is more relaxed and laid back with a casual attire, so you are pretty much free to try out anything unless your work has rules in regards to your hair. You can wear a slick style and it will be cool or a messy style and it will still be cool as well!

See these awesome examples below.
