So, you want to shave your head. Good on you. A shaved head can add a rugged, tough edge to any guy's style—all without any change to his wardrobe. Plus, the upkeep is impossibly easy: Just don't let those strands get too long. Here are some guys who have nailed the look. 

1| Kanye West

Kanye's signature is a cool, super-short buzz. You'll never see it grow to a point of pull-able.

Westbrook opts for the subtle fade here. It's a great look if you like the idea of a high-and-tight, but don't want something too severe.

3| David Beckham

Young David Beckham rocked an induction cut (named for the style worn by military recruits). It's the shortest you can go without going full scalp.

4| Michael B. Jordan 


Another take on a fade, but a little more severe—the most dramatic part is shaved down to his scalp.

5| Justin Timberlake 


JT's burr cut (a little denser than a total buzz) has a cool shape to it. Have fun with the lengths and edges as you please. 

6| Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling may have more hair on his face than his head here. It's a sharp look if you can grow a good beard. 

7| Nick Jonas


Nick Jonas is verging into butch territory here, a flavor of buzz cut that gives you a quarter of an inch of length. Good for exploring a shorter style.

8| Zayn Malik 


Zayn Malik's (very blond) buzz is a bold style move, if you're into making a statement with your grooming. 

9| Idris Elba

Idris Elba, the man who makes every hair style, length, and cut look perfected. Here, his is a longer type of buzz, perhaps a burr grown out a little. It works. 

10| Brad Pitt 


And Brad Pitt, with another take on a long-ish buzzcut. Perfect for easy styling, but not too harsh.
