Try to mix various styles and get something absolutely new and extraordinary. Give a traditional middle fade to your sides (just the sides!) and style an awesome Mohawk with your long top strands. Be sure the texture and volume of the hair in this blowout cut are going to make you the center of attention wherever you are.

Low Blowout Haircut


If you like classic, focus on this interesting blowout. It is really gorgeous because it balances extremely bold modern blowout ideas and traditional ones. This means that you can do low faded sides and back and leave textured blow-dried strands on the crown to get an eye-catching and a bit conservative look.

Two-Toned Combed Back Blowout

A combed back blowout haircut can make you look smarter and more elegant. It fits perfectly for both formal and informal events. A blonde top and dark roots combined with wind-blown style creates an original appearance. Moreover, a high fade and solid line on the side add individualistic to this cut.

Incredible Spiked Blowout

If you want to escape the traditional way of styling the blowout, you can choose something with a more edgier aesthetic like this creative look. Do a low skin fade, shorten the sides a bit and go extremely wild with the crown part – style it to be upright and bold! By the way, if you want to get this look, you should have at least medium length hair.

Cropped Blowout Cut


Not only men with long and medium length hair can wear the blowout style. A short cropped blowout haircut looks as trendy and charming as any long options. Thanks to its subtle nature, it fits men of all ages and with various facial peculiarities. Besides, this haircut is suitable for any formal and informal occasions.

Side-Parted Blowout with Bangs

Here is a cool way to update the classic side-parted blowout because the hard sideline and long bangs add playfulness to your cut. One low faded side keeps your look tidy and sophisticated as well as asymmetry creates a good contrast which balances the whole look.

Curly Blowout Haircut


It seems that curly hair is just right for the blowout hairstyle and your curls can be pretty easily matched by the blowout. Add a modern stylish touch to your image in order to express yourself and combine your haircut with a beard. Try to cut the lower part shorter, get a line up on the front, sides and back and create a charming long top with a bit of gel.

Bottom Line

Perhaps you have already understood that the popularity of the blowout depends directly on its versatility and convenience. Generally, the blowout haircuts are very easy in maintenance because the only things you really need while styling the perfect blowout are a hairdryer and some pomade or gel. But sometimes it isn’t so easy to find the best-suited cut for yourself.

You know one of the greatest advantages of the blowout hairstyle is that it fits all men irrespective of their face shape, body build, skin color, age or other features. This hairstyle is universal and unique at the same time. The number of possible variations is unending and you get a wonderful chance to find out your perfect blowout haircut that will express your personality and make you stand out from the crowd.
