This article will teach you how you can roughly get the same look.

Most Popular Chris Bumstead Haircuts


A couple of years back, when Bumstead started gaining a massive following, he wore his hair in a short quiff hairstyle. Typically, you will need rather long hair on the top of your head, around 3-4 inches, ideally.

However, in the case of Bumstead, he wore his hair short and styled it like a quiff.

CBum Mullet

The mullet is somehow making a modern resurgence and we are all here for it. Not surprisingly, modern mullets suit Bumstead’s hair type and facial features, especially his beard.

The modern mullet is not quite identical to its 80s counterpart. Bumstead’s mullet is styled with the sides of his head in a high taper, and the back is still long.

Chris Bumstead Mustache

Chris Bumstead’s mustache styles are usually not varied. However, recently, he has been seen wearing a wide chevron mustache (basically a chevron, but the corners extend from the corners of the mouth) and medium stubble. His mullet with beard combo is quite attractive.

How to Get and Maintain Chris Bumstead Hairstyles

Step 1 – Choose a Chris Bumstead hairstyle

It would greatly help if you had the same hair type as Bumstead, which is brown and curly. If you have the same square jaw as Bumstead, the quiff will suit you well. You will also love how the mullet will look good on you if you have a heavy build and a wide neck.

Step 2 – Style appropriately

The common feature in how Bumstead styles his hair is that the top is always short and combed up, so you will need to use a bit of styling gel.

If you do not like how styling gel makes your hair all stiff, you can use hair pomade or wax. You can even use light oils if you want to.

Step 3 – Maintain

To maintain a hairstyle similar to that of Chris Bumstead, you only need the most basic hair care products. Your hair will not be so long that you need to worry about strands breaking, but you do need to take care of your scalp.

This means you don’t need to shampoo every day. Just 2 to 3 times a week will be fine.

Step 4 – Learn what products to use

Chris Bumstead’s hairstyles are not that complicated to style. As mentioned earlier, you will only need products that will give your hair enough hold and maybe some volume.

Because the hair on top of your head will be pretty short, you will not need anything with a strong hold so that that essential hair pomade will work well.
