THE BEST MEN’S MEDIUM HAIRCUTS
The slick back screams sophistication. This hairstyle has the power to elevate your look immediately. Perfect for work or a night on the town, this style can easily go from day to night.

To style, apply a small amount of Jaxson Maximus Styling Gel and run it through your hair. Comb your hair over, following one parting on your hair to create that hard line.
THE MODERN POMPADOUR
One of the most timeless hairstyles you can get, the pompadour stands the test of time. To add a modern twist to this classic hairstyle, try playing with the angels or the length of the hair on the side.

By combining contemporary elements to a more classic cut, you can take your appearance to a whole new level.
This hairstyle is not for the faint of heart. It does require daily styling and maintenance. Apply a liberal amount of our Jaxson Maximus styling foam, starting at your roots to your ends. For a dramatic effect, use a small round brush and blow dryer to create lift and movement in your hair. Finish off your look with our Jaxson Maximus Finishing Hair Spray to keep your hair in place all day long.
For that laidback yet youthful look, try the fringe haircut. Not only will this style be easy to maintain, but it will also offer you a range of styling options.
To get this look keep your hair long in front with pieces sweeping across. For styling, add a small amount of our Jaxson Maximus styling wax to your hands and run it through your hair down to your ends. This will give you that polished yet casual “I rolled of bed like this” look.
This stylish yet sophisticated haircut is a popular choice for modern men. By keeping the fade beneath the midway line of the head, this style will give you plenty of options for styling with the hair on top. To diversify your look, try giving your hair a blowout, adding waves, or sliding it back for that subtle edge.

Whether rocking curled or straight hair, the high fade will become your favorite new hairstyle. For men looking to look cool and sharp, this is a great hairstyle to try. The high fade is a style that reaches above the midway line between the temples and the top of the ear.
This look results in a crisp look that can give you a wide variety of styling options. If you previously have been rocking an undercut, pompadour, or quiff, having a high fade can be a great way to give your hair a fresh new update.
