THE BUZZ CUT
Shorn sides. Strong look.
The buzz cut style is a classic military style popularised by college kids, 90s hip-hoppers and 80s punk rockers. No matter your personal style, your buzz will benefit from two things: a decent pair of clippers and some after-styling cream. We recommend Axe Natural Look: Understated Cream.
Buzz cuts suit pretty much any face type, but work best if you’ve got a strong jawline. A good beard or some rough stubble helps, too. Like James in the video, you’re going to need an extra set of hands for your first buzz. Find a good barber or friend you can trust with sharp objects.
How it began
The buzz cut has been around for centuries, but is best known as a modern military staple. And today? It's perfect for guys who want a no-fuss cut they'll never need to spend more than a few minutes on. That's the beauty of the buzz.
The key to a buzz cut is finding the right length. Keep it low and tight for an edgy look or slightly longer for a relaxed vibe.
