Barbershops these days have come a long way since our grandfather’s time. While a good old cut-and-shave is always reliable and won’t cause your HR head to raise an eyebrow, today’s gents now have access to a wider range of styles, from timeless fades with a modern flair to edgier and more daring cuts. Here are some of the coolest.  

Slick Barbers Co.

They don’t make hairstyles like these anymore.

Do a throwback with this rockabilly elephant trunk cut that will allow you to channel your inner 1950s greaser. Think Danny Zuko from Grease. Now, all you need is a leather jacket and a café racer to complete the look.  

This one's a modern take on that haircut you found in a faded photo of your grandfather. For men with wavy, textured hair, this messy pomp with a clean fade is a great variation on a classic.

Best known for their fades, feel free to go as high as you want.

Here’s a hairstyle for corporate gents that’s right in the middle of respectable and fun. If your workplace is more traditional with a stricter dress code, this high-and-tight skinfade is office- and club-approved.



We’ve also got our fully bearded fellows covered. The trick to highlighting your beard’s bushy feature and making it look full and deliberate as opposed to unkempt is to go neat and high with your fade. This high-fade pomp with a hard part complements thick facial hair well.

Southern Town Barbershop

Southern Town’s cuts are a mix of retro and edgy—great for those who live a double life straddling the creative and corporate worlds. 

Height is might—or so they say, and this classic high pompadour with a mid-fade really allows you to stand out from the crowd.

Whether you’re a rebel or an office chap (or both), this high-bald fade combover is a versatile cut that suits both personalities. Take this hairstyle from the boardroom to the bar.

Kapwa Studio

In this space of creative collaboration expect bold cuts that are expertly crafted by their barber-stylists.  

Buzz cuts are fuss-free and utilitarian, but who says they have to be boring? Give your buzz cut an update with lines for added edge, like this one from Joe Camacam.  

Meanwhile, if you can grow your hair up and out, go for a funky fresh ‘do a la Will Smith and bring back the hi-top fade from the ’80s. Graphic shirts and dungarees not included.

Legal Cuts

If you have time to scurry down south, this barbershop in Cavite has got some serious pompadour game, among other rockabilly-inspired haircuts.



Fix your eyes on these takes on high-fade pomps with hard parts. They’re a mix of edgy and classic.

Noble Barbers

Leave it to the neighborhood barbers from Pampanga to perfect retro haircuts, showing that classic hairstyles choose no age.  

If you’d like to deviate from popular fades and take on a sleek haircut with a touch of rock 'n' roll, rip a page out of Elvis’ style bible and go for this long-trim pompadour. Oh, and don’t leave out the sideburns.  

While the young ones have claimed ownership of the fade-pompadour cut, leave it to this cool tito to show you how it’s really done. His classic mid-fade pompadour is an updated version of the quintessential barber's cut
