30 Trendy and Elegant Best Wedding Haircuts for Men in 2022

Finding the ideal tux, finding shoes that fit perfectly, and determining whether to wear a pocket square are just a few of the numerous details that go into pulling off a wedding. But it’s crucial to keep in mind not to be sidetracked by those particulars and to concentrate on another crucial element—your wedding day hairdo.

Michael Dueas, a celebrity hairdresser and photographer, advises grooms to stay with traditional and timeless looks. “Usually well-groomed, neat, tapering sides with a little length on top. Think about the 1940s men’s fashion. Simply less product,” he explains. Dueas advises applying a moulding paste for a “natural finish” to get the ideal hairdo on the big day.


  • How do I choose the best wedding hairstyle?
  • For your wedding day, we suggest not making any drastic changes to your hair (unless you really want to). Go with what you feel most comfortable and confident in and just polish it up if you need to.
  • How long before the wedding should I schedule a haircut?
  • You know your hair best, so we’ll let you be the judge of when it looks its absolute finest. Most grooms prefer to schedule their trims the week before the wedding, but those with short buzz cuts or shaves may choose to wait until just before the big day.

I have some suggestions for grooms seeking for a hip hairdo for the wedding! You may pick from a variety of cool and cutting-edge haircuts that we’ve prepared for you, and on the big day, style your hair with a little hair product to don a fresh appearance to go with your dapper suit or tux. Let’s look at some stylish suggestions.

1.Man Bun

While cascading curls are quite covetable, they can be a bit high-maintenance in more humid locales. Enter, the ultra-cool man bun. Sweep those spirals back into a knot for a sleek look that won’t compromise your personal style. Note: This ‘do works on any hair texture, but we especially love the dimension of curls in the mix.

2.Induction Buzz Cut

A military, or induction, buzz cut is about as short as you can go without taking it all off. The minimalist look is a class style that will always look sharp. Be sure to have your barber freshen up the cut as close to the big day as possible for the cleanest look.

3.Natural Textures


If you have natural hair, then let it grow out! Your curls or coils will be the star of the show. From shorter crops to full-blown heights, we love the vibe of going au naturel.

4.Low Ponytail

For grooms with longer styles, pull your hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. You can even leave some of your hair loose in the front to frame your face or nonchalantly tuck behind the ears. This low-key men’s hairstyle is modern, sleek, and creates a cohesive look with a classic tux.

5.The Mid-Length Man

If you have longer hair, a man bun and ponytail aren’t the only options. Instead, let your hair down and let those waves do their thing. Allow the hair to dry in a swept-back style for an effortless aesthetic that still looks polished.

6.The Classic

If you’re not a fan of long hair, try this tried-and-true men’s cut. The sides remain shorter (but not nearly as short as a buzz cut), but leave a good amount of hair on top. Since the hair isn’t as long, it won’t be in your face but still provides enough versatility to personalize the look.

7.Graduated Front

A neat cut with a graduated, longer front never disappoints. Styling options are plentiful from brushing it into a polished, high-and-tight style to refining the look but allowing some roguish movement in the front. These grooms chose to get ready together—which might explain the complementary hair that illustrates our examples beautifully—for their elegant Puerto Rico nuptials.

8.Waved Front


Don’t be afraid to add more elements to a mixed-length hairstyle. For this look, have the top and front waved to create volume. Then, ask your stylist to use a molding paste to shape the hair how you want—this will also keep the hair in place throughout the entire day.

9.Spiked-Up Top

There’s no easier men’s hairstyle than spiking your hair up. It might seem casual for a wedding, but we disagree. This hairstyle adds an element of unexpected vibrancy to any wedding ensemble.

10.Perfectly Imperfect

We’ll call this look magnetically mussed up. It’s the I woke up like this of men’s hairstyles that’s effortlessly devilish while being completely intentional. Similar to its spiked-up counterpart, you’ll need to work some product into the hair to create that alluringly piece-y vibe. Remember to exercise restraint, the goal is to look refined not bed-headed.

Opt for waxes, styling creams, or texturizing pastes with a matte finish (not glossy) to achieve this coif.

11.Long All Over


Another way to wear your hair on your wedding day is to let it grow out. The varying lengths in this cut provide lots of dimension and opportunities to shape and mold the design. Ask your hairstylist to blow-dry it for extra volume and softness.

12.Curly Undercut

An undercut offers the best of both worlds, a fresh buzz cut on the sides and back with lots of height and length to play with on top. The style has immensely grown in popularity over the years—thanks to many a well-groomed athlete—with no signs of stopping. We love that this groom took the opportunity to flaunt his curls for the California backyard wedding.

13.All Connected

Become one with your beard. Instead of disconnecting the sides of your hair from your facial hair, leave it all connected to create one smooth line. The natural definition creates a rugged look that’s always fashionable.

14.Clean and Sleek

If a clean-shaven hairstyle is your go-to, don’t feel like you need to switch it up for your ceremony. Stick with what suits you best and makes you feel comfortable. A shaved style is classic and timeless.

Have your barber give the scalp a good steam and follow up with oils to moisturize and give the skin a healthy sheen.

15.Long Dreads

Calling all grooms with dreads! Even if you are having a formal wedding, your dreads can look elegant and fit right into the setting. Dreadlocks are easy to care for and don’t require constant attention and styling. Just give your dreads a refresh before the big day.

16.Twisted Locs

Similar to traditional dreads, these long strands are twisted for a spiraled texture full of dimension. The style can be worn down for a dynamic look or be gathered back into a low-slung ponytail for easier mobility. The urban vibe was picture-perfect for this fashionable Chicago wedding.

17.Slicked Back

Listen up, grooms: Hair products can be your friends. A simple hairstyle can completely transform with the use of quality products. Whether adding shine or a bit of grip for texture and hold, your look will be completely elevated and photo-ready.

A classic fade is always an excellent, fuss-free option. It’s a timeless style that will place all of the attention on your suit and details. Plus, you won’t have to worry about it getting disheveled on the dance floor.

19.Temp Fade

The temp fade is a traditional buzz cut with a bit of panache. The style is distinguished by added density at the top graduating into a barely there crop as the hairline descends toward the neck, particularly at the temples. The sharp lines create definition that handsomely frames the face.

20.Twists Into a Ponytail

Pulling braids into a ponytail makes for a very chic men’s style. Have your hair braided closely to the scalp and leave some length on the ends. Then pull the lengths back and secure in place. You won’t have to worry about touching up your hair all day.
