Although there are many attractive hairstyles to choose from, not all are appropriate for the office. Furthermore, you will want to double-check your office dress code before getting a daring new hairstyle.

One of the best hairstyles for business is the crew cut. It is short and sharp but easy to maintain. That means you won’t have to spend much time in the morning styling your hair.

To create this style, you will need to comb your hair back while it is damp. After, you should add a strong-hold gel and blowdry.
If you want to add some attitude to your haircut, go for the hard part. It looks classy but is quick and straightforward to achieve, especially for those with a naturally defined side part. With some gel and a fine-tooth comb, follow the direction in which your hair falls.

No matter your age or face shape, you can probably pull off an Ivy League haircut. It is a combination of a side part and a crew cut. The hair on top is left longer, and it tapers at the side, which makes it an attractive style that suits most men.
Side parts work well on straight, wavy, or curly hair. It is one of the most common professional hairstyles because it is so easy to maintain.
You will need first to comb your hair, letting it fall naturally at the part. Then, style it with a pomade to hold it in place.
Hard Part + Taper Fade

Short hair may not be your thing, and that’s okay. Just make sure to keep your medium length or long hair groomed neatly. Doing so will keep your look professional, rather than grungy.
The man bun is a perfect professional hairstyle for long hair because it doesn’t clash with a suit when styled correctly. It keeps your luscious mane out of your face too.
You will need to comb back your hair and use some pomade to keep the strands in place. Then, secure your bun at the back of your head or near your neck using a clear elastic band.
Medium Length Comb Back
If the man bun is too bold for your taste, a comb back style can tame your medium length hair. It isn’t as flat as the sleek comb back since it you achieve it by coming back the hair in an upward motion. Doing this creates more volume and balances out your face by making it seem longer.
You will also need to ensure that your long hair looks healthy. You may need to purchase additional products for healthier hair, such as vitamins or leave-in treatments.
If you have a daring personality, you need a bold haircut to match it. The clean shave tells everyone that you are confident, mature, and have nothing to hide.
Make sure to have your barber shave your head for you, as doing it at home can leave your head looking patchy. Your barber can make sure it seems ultra-clean.
If you want to balance it out, grow some facial hair to add definition to your face. Trim it with clean edges and lines for a sexy look.
