The Best Haircuts for Older Men

The Buzz Cut

With its elegant look and easy maintenance, the buzz cut is the perfect choice when it comes to any type of thinning or missing hair. Also, the buzz cut can help hide some of the receding hairlines as well. So the next time you are at Hair Mechanix, just ask them to buzz it down!

The Mop Top

Not everyone is happy with a buzz or really short hair, so naturally, the mop top could be a great option. Growing your hair out on top will enable you to brush it forward or off to the side where your hair is thinning.  It is a much more subtle look than a full-blown comb-over. With the mop top, you can vary the lengths so that you are happy with the look.

The Short Quiff

The quiff hairstyle is a mixture of two classic cuts; the pompadour and the military cut. A short quiff gives your hair more volume and definition while also hiding any bald spots or imperfections. Overall, it is a modern cut and one of the best hairstyles for older men.

The Slick Back

The more old-school look is the slick back. For decades, guys have been using the slick back to hide bald spots. This hairstyle works by keeping the sides short and the top slightly longer before using a gel or mousse product to slick the hair back or to the side. This helps in hiding bald spots as well as some parts of unflattering hairlines.

These are just a few of the options you have when it comes to your hair. Of course, there are also hair products that can make your hair thicker and fuller as well. No matter what style you choose, make sure to visit the professionals at Hair Mechanix they help you look your best with a new haircut in no time!

Have you ever wonder what started the trick or treating tradition? Halloween was borrowed from the Celtic holiday where at the end of the year people would dress up as evil spirits. The Catholic Church changed the name to All Hallows Eve, All Soul’s Day, and All Saints Day.

On each of the days, poor adults and children would dress as saints, angels, and demons and go door to door begging for food and money. All this was during the middle ages, eventually, the tradition re-emerged in the United States in the 19020s and 1930s. Of course, the holiday was made into one day as we know it today as Halloween. One funny fact, the British apparently hate Halloween. In a 2006 survey, it found that over half of the British homeowners to not participate in the Halloween tradition.
