When I was a teenager I literally had no sense of hairstyles. I had mentioned in the previous article that my dad would just ask the barber to give me a crew cut, every time. But by the time I turned 14, I started experimenting with gelling my hair and spiking it. When you are a teenage guy, hairstyles are one of the most important things. And the worst part? If you get it wrong, you’ll get ridiculed!

So here are the best hairstyles for teenage boys.

If you are a teenage guy and if you want to know the most popular style of hairstyle in 2020, then it’s the undercut. The undercut is basically the sides and back of a portion of your head are shaved short and the top has any style you choose. The top can be a pompadour, it can be a slick, it can be a spike. Whatever you name it. The undercut bodes well for low maintenance and if you are the type who doesn’t like maintaining his hair, then it’s best to go for an undercut.

#2 – Taper with texture cut teenage guy hairstyles

A taper with a textured cut is one of the most stylish hairstyles going around and I personally prefer this style. So what is a taper and what is a textured cut?

A taper as the name suggests is a slow fade. The barber basically keeps your hair at a certain height at the top and as he goes, the hair gets thinner and thinner.

A textured cut is a non-cut and this is for people who don’t want to look like they’ve just got a haircut. A barber, for a textured cut, doesn’t cut your hair straight, but cuts it at an angle, what this does it, gives you a natural style and texture.

This is a pretty popular style among teenage guys.  

#3 – Slicked spikes teenage guy hairstyles

A slick is generally wet. That’s why slick backs styles have a lot of gel in the hair. A slick spike is similar. It is basically spiking your hair, but only in the front with a slick style. So the rest of the top of your hair will be kept short and your sides and back will also be short. Slicked spikes aren’t the hairstyle to choose if you want to keep your parents happy. But this is an incredibly stylish hairstyle and most teenagers can pull it off with elan.

#4 – Combover teenage guy hairstyles

If I actually tell you why the combover originated, you will probably not try that hairstyle ever. A combover was first introduced for bald men to cover their balding portion of their head. They would run the comb at an angle to cover the bald spot. But now, the comb-over has taken a different form altogether.

The combover is one of the stylish hairstyles going around. This is perfectly suited for guys who have straight hair. So if you are a teenage guy with straight hair, I would suggest a comb-over. It’s pretty stylish and looks great on most people.
