In general, asymmetrical haircuts make your hair longer on one side than the other.

It is a flexible haircut that gives you a more laid-back and chill vibe.

6 Most Popular Asymmetrical Hairstyles

Temple Fade Hard Part

No one will ever consider this style an ugly haircut as it looks good and fashionable. It is easy and quick to maintain and works well for both long and short hair. It leaves a good impression by separating your hair from the crown.

Wavy Asymmetrical Hairstyle

This hairstyle is good for you if you have thick, waves or locks. You can pair it up with a tapered cut and a long beard. It tends to look good on bearded men. You can use beard curlers to make your style as engaging as the wavy asymmetrical hairstyle.

Hard Part Undercut

If you prefer the side-part haircut, you can go, instead, for the hard part undercut, which is ideal for social and workplace settings. It also seems to look suitable for long-haired men, though there are also a few of those with short hair who rock this style.

It is also suitable for anyone with a natural hair textures and volume. However, many say that the only requirement for this style has thick hair. If that is the case, you can expect it to make you look good regardless of your hair texture and length.

In other words, it is one of the most versatile long and short hairstyles for thick hair.

Taper Fade Hard Part

The taper fade hard part asymmetrical hairstyle is as sophisticated and suave as the modern mullets. Some also say the asymmetry of this look has the somewhat adventurous and fun vibe of skater haircuts. It can leave a positive impression as a dashing debonair.

Go for this style if your hair is thick and long. You will also look better if you wear the right beard style.

Spiky Hairstyle Featuring a Hard Part

Go for the spiky hairstyle that also features a tricky part if you feel confident, bold, and daring enough to pull this style off. This style tends to appear better when you have long hair, making the asymmetric haircut lean to the left.

Like many asymmetrical and undercut haircut ideas, it is also a good choice if you have thick hair.

Curly Hard Part Asymmetrical

Do you have some curls that you want to show off? Then go for the curly hard part asymmetric haircut. It can give you a youthful vibe and give your hair more texture and volume. Note, though, that it is similar to unprofessional hairstyles for men that are kind of hard to maintain.

Still, I find it a good choice, as parting my hair through this style makes my entire appeal more fun.

How to Style and Maintain

Step 1 – Choose an asymmetrical haircut

Choose an asymmetrical haircut while considering what fits your face’s shape. Consider the length, thickness, and texture of your hair, too.

In addition, you must find out what particular features you want to highlight on your face and the kind of personality you want the asymmetrical cuts to demonstrate.

Step 2 – Style your hair

Style your hair with either an undercut or a hard part. In most cases, it will give your overall style an asymmetrical look. You must keep visiting a salon or a hairdresser when planning to sport an asymmetrical haircut.

This is to give the style regular trimming and ensure that the style still holds the shape and hair textures you prefer.

Step 3 – Apply a volumizing or texturizing spray

Apply spray to your asymmetric haircut, as this can provide layers and volume to your hair. It also helps secure your haircut no matter the weather or how you move.

If you have a shorter asymmetrical haircut, like, for example, a pixie cut, use a pomade, gel, or any other thick product to secure the look.


Are asymmetrical bobs in style in 2022?

Yes. It is a trend this 2022 and probably in the next few years. It is perhaps because these asymmetrical cuts fit almost all shapes of faces and hair types.

Is an asymmetrical haircut high-maintenance?

The asymmetrical haircut requires more maintenance than the others as it requires you to keep up with your styling routine. If you add color to your asymmetrical hair, you must also put on a color-friendly shampoo and conditioner.

In addition, you also have to visit your stylist or hairdresser for regular touch-up appointments.

What does asymmetrical mean in a haircut?

You can call a particular haircut asymmetrical if it features sides of various lengths. It could be that your hair’s left side reaches your shoulders and the one on the right is near the top of the scalp. It could also be the other way around.
