8 smashing haircuts for super dads

As Araneta City celebrates the hard work and determination of Super Dads, barbershops and hair groomers at the City of Firsts are ready to give them the haircut they deserve.

We have listed down 8 daddy chill haircuts suitable for their varied occupations and different aesthetics. 


1. Taper Fade

A balanced option that suits almost all men and hair types is the taper fade. A taper fade haircut keeps the hair long on top while tapering it down the sides and back. The hair gets progressively shorter as it goes down the head. This gradual fade looks sharp and neat, with no messy or unsightly edges or rough spots.

The taper fade haircut is a wonderful low-maintenance haircut that doesn’t require much styling or upkeep. It also great for experimenting; you can modify it to fit your personal style.

But not all tapers are fades, and guys can ask their barbers for a classic cut with scissors instead of clippers.

2. Classic Taper

For Dads who need a tidy haircut for their job or simply want a polished style, the classic taper haircut is a good option. It is a haircut that’s not too boring, not too wild, and never goes out of style.

The classic taper haircut is a low-maintenance style that works well with all face shapes and hair types, and it strikes the balance between casual and professional.


3. Ivy League

Ideal for dads with defined, masculine features such as high cheekbones and strong jawline, the Ivy League offers style, volume, and fullness for a prim business or office look.

Also known as the Princeton haircut or Harvard clip, the Ivy League haircut is a stylish combination of the classic crew cut and side part. It starts with a short trim on the sides, back, and top, then keeps the front long enough to comb over to the side. 


4. Ceasar Cut

A low-profile, short men’s cut with a fringe, the Caesar haircut is a top choice for men who participate in sports and other high-energy activities. It’s a versatile, low-maintenance haircut that can suit any hair type.

It is named after Roman emperor Julius Caesar, who first sported this hairstyle. He did so presumably to hide his early-onset baldness. Whether or not that’s true, the Caesar haircut is indeed a good choice too for balding men or for guys who simply want short, fashionable hair.


5. Butch Cut

Also known as brush cut, the butch cut is a short, uniform cut. The hair is cut to the same length all around the head using clippers. This haircut works well for guys who simply want a no-fuss haircut and a clean looking head.

Since the butch cut has other names, you might want to ask your stylist to buzz your hair with a certain clipper setting. Any clipper from #3 to #5 will give a good, tidy butch cut, while a #4 clipper is preferred if you’ve never gotten a buzz-style haircut before.

This style is good for balding men to help conceal the balding.


6. Crew Cut

It is a relatively simple tapered hairstyle, with the top of the head trimmed short, and everything else even shorter. It works well on all sorts of face shapes, which is why you might see this look on most guys.

The crew cut is a timeless male hairstyle that is both minimal and elegant. Not only does it exude confidence and appear sharp, but this short haircut is also simple to maintain and easy to style. As such, it’s perfect for any gent who wants to look good without expending a lot of effort.


7. Soft spikes

Soft spikes are perfect for creating the look of volume and fullness. The soft spike hairstyle is great for those who have super flat hair or are thinning out in various areas on the scalp.

The spikes enable one to be bold by giving low-maintenance thinning hair a twist. The spikes will offer a rough appearance which will certainly turn a few heads. Hair gel or pomade is usually all you need to make this hairstyle last an entire day.


8. Quiff

A quiff is suitable for a wide range of professional and casual situations. It has a multitude of variations and can be modified for nearly any face shape, hair type, and aesthetic. This versatility allows you to modify it to your liking.

The quiff hairstyle is a medium-length hairstyle because of the volume needed on the top of the head. 3 inches is a bare minimum for a good quiff. Going longer, from 4 to 6 inches, will give you massive volume and a taller quiff.
