When it comes to those hairstyles that have been around on and off but have never disappeared for good, the undercut has to be on the top of the list. This style of hair was particularly fashionable and trending during the period of the 1910s to 1940s after which the hype surrounding it died down a little. However, much to nobody’s surprise, the undercut made quite a massive comeback during the 1980s and finally, it has now become one of those classic hairstyles that are incredibly youthful, versatile, and work well with all types of hair, be it wavy, straight, or curly!

Take a look at some of the most amazing and unique types of undercut hairstyles for men.

This has to be one of the most classic examples of the disconnected undercut with a really fine, clear line separating the top of the hair from the clean-shaved sides. The front has quite voluminous layers of hair and the addition of the messy scruff greatly complements this undercut hairstyle. It seems to be emitting quite a mysterious look which is perfect for those who fancy playing a little with their hair.

This is a very characteristic type of undercut blowout hairstyle but with perfectly styled hair. It includes a very clear, well-defined side parting with short hair gelled back with great precision and care. It is an excellent undercut choice for those who want to look stylish yet wish to give a very formal and professional kind of a look.

If crazy, bold and funky is your way of doing hair, perhaps you could try pulling off something like this. This is yet another short undercut, but with front hair that has been dyed a bright, bubblegum pink! There are also subtle hints of grey dye that offer a great contrast to the pink and look just so different and interesting.

This is a simple yet chic side-swept undercut hairstyle with longer proportions of hair towards the top. This helps make the parting work really well and blend in perfectly with the shorter sides of the haircut. This style of undercut hair is great for those who wish to jazz things up a little with their hair and yet want to play it safe without creating any hair disaster!

This is probably the boldest of all undercut hairstyles since this one includes a hair tattoo that starts from the sides and extends all the way down towards the nape of the neck. It is a mixture of the short undercut and the side-swept undercut, just with the addition of a funky and unique hair tattoo.

All those with a weak heart should probably stay away from this undercut hairstyle because it is nothing short of crazy, risky and simply exaggerated! One of its key features is the long-slick of hair that goes back all the way down to the middle of the head. The sides and the bottom back are completely shaved off and the only hair you will see is the thick lock from the front in the middle that is gelled all the way towards the back.

This is one of those fancy and slick undercuts that look exceptionally stylish, but are yet so simple. The front and back seem to have quite thicker and longer while the sides have been shaved with great precision.
