Black Panther introduced a new hairstyle into the public domain. Soon after the movie hit the big screens, many men took to wearing the new “Killermonger” hairstyle. The haircut, an inspiration from Black Panther’s lead act, Michael B. Jordan soon became popular. However, there are other hairstyles that can compete favorably with it.
These are 33 best Killermonger haircuts that are in the league of Michael Jordan’s and which will have you racing to make an appointment with your hair stylist.
1. Slicked Back Undercut
The undercut is a favorite haircut for men. The slicked back variation lets the hair on top provide contrast between the short and longer top. The hair on the sides can be trimmed a bit. But to rock it better, keep the sides short and the top long.
2. Taper Fade
This is the best haircut that suits formal and casual occasions. With a taper fade, you don’t need to break a bank to make a fashion statement. Just like the slicked back undercut, the top is kept long. The sides and back are tapered; giving a neat fade without rough spots.
3. Super Slick Wing Back
There are lots of variations to the slicked back hairstyle. You can never go wrong with the Super Slick Wing Back. The style lets you retain the slick back. But the back is interlocked; closing in all openings.
4. The Blowout
When looking for a haircut that gets you confident, the Blow-out does the job perfectly. This is a great way to rock a voluminous hair without giving thoughts to scattered edges. A medium-length hair sits at the top and the sides can be trimmed a bit. Having a textured spray, hairdryer and some pair of combs is a nice way to keep it in style.
5. Textured Fringe
Having a curly hair is a nice way to keep your fashion statement on the highs. Sadly, maintaining a curly hair is not easy. The textured fringe is a great haircut that keeps your curly hair in place. The style not only keeps the face well-framed but also keeps the hair well-textured.
6. Side Part
The Side Part is not left for youngsters alone; older men can put up the style as well. The hair is cut across; with the top having the bigger part. The sides are kept on the low and a long line at the sides (the parting) gives you the suave look you crave for.
7. Side Part Pompadour
Side parting takes another variation here. The hairstyle lets you keep a long hair at the top and shorter sides. The sides can also take a high fade to give a classy look. To rock it better, consider pairing with a beard and moustache.
8. The Buzz Cut
Even though this might seem to be out of place, the Buzz Cut is still one of the best hairstyles. It works better for individuals that want a short haircut that has a touch of class. Adding some hair spray (preferably golden) is a nice way to bleach the style.
9. Classic Pompadour
Here comes another Pompadour! If you’re not at ease with the side part pompadour, consider getting the classic variation. With well-trimmed edges, the style gives a classy look. Also, a well-trimmed beard gives a polished appearance.
10. Caesar Cut
For enhanced facial features, the Caesar Cut is a good option. The style dates back to Julius Caesar and has been in vogue ever since then. The hairstyle looks best with a horizontal fringe and fades. This is a great way to call attention to the jaws and eyes. Rocking a beard will be classy.
Like the Caesar Cut, the spikes are back to the haircut domain. While the top is spiked, the sides are kept on the low. A handy gel adds a shiny touch to the spikes. You can take it to the next level with a beard.
12. Deep Wave
The wave is a great haircut that brings out the facial features. The unique design can be spotted with a beard. Also, consider fading the edges of the back. The deep wave is better off with men that have textured hair.
13. The Razor Up-Sweet Mohawk
This is a better variation to the Mohawk hairstyle. The haircut points upwards and features a side cut. This is best for men with longer hair. Perhaps the three steps add a touch of glamour: the top is long; medium hair at the middle and a shorter hair compliment the sides.
14. Wavy Ivy League
The style is not left for college boys; older men can put on a Wavy Ivy League hairstyle. The hair strands are kept short and neat. The style adds a touch of glamour and is a nice way to drive home your standing as a gentleman.
15. Swept Up
This is another razor-up in the making. However, the Swept Up hairstyle is for the modern gentleman that wants to spot a head-spinning look. The style features well-trimmed edges of the same height. At the front, some strands are propped up to give an amazing physical feature.
16. Faux Hawk
The Faux Hawk is suitable for fashionable men. In spite of the disoriented cuts, a balm can put the strands in place. The length of the hair goes from short at the back to longer in the front.
Flattops are highly popular among many men who just like imposing hairstyles. To achieve this look, keep your hair at the most 3 inches tall. Then ask your barber to style to your preference. The flattop is a great way to keep the hair short and neat.
18. Drop Fade
Like other fades, the drop fade works well with any hairstyle. It’s a great way to add a clean cut edge to a short or curly hair. The fade drops behind the ear; giving the face a clean cut. The style is also a modern update to a classic hairstyle.
19. Bowl Cut
The style that made waves in the ‘90s is back. The top covers the faded sides with a “bowl-like shape”. To achieve this, the hair has to be long and a gel (or any other styling agent) has to be handy to give the top a shiny look.
20. Hide Fade Quiff
The quiff haircut is getting popular as days pass by. The High Fade Quiff focuses on a messy texture at the top. At the side is the high fade. The cut is better off with beards. Making a fashion statement gets reinvention with this hairstyle.
21. Short Blowout with Tapered Sides
While opting for a blowout hairstyle, partnering it with tapered sides makes it unique. The style is contemporary and gives a clean look. The blowout at the top can be brushed backwards for enhanced facial outlook.
