Kevin Hart is one of the funniest comedians in the industry today.

Because of his stellar fame, his fans want to emulate him, including his signature hairstyles.

In this article, you will learn about the most popular haircuts ever worn by the famous Kevin Hart.

3 Most Popular Kevin Hart Haircuts

Kevin Hart has a very distinct look, and he usually does not deviate too much from his signature hairstyles – of which there are only a few.

Low Fade With a Hard Part

Because Kevin Hart has tight curls, a buzzed, low-fade haircut suits him. The hard part of the hair is achieved by shaving a strip off from the side to simulate a hair part.

This looks particularly good on Kevin because he has pretty thick compact hair, so the part is very noticeable.

Kev’s Buzz Cut

Kevin Hart likes to keep his hairstyles simple and low maintenance, so he usually gets a regular buzz cut with high-fade hairstyles. However, Kevin Hart does have a unique buzz cut because of the crisp edges.

You can get the same look using balding clippers and two mirrors at home. However, if you want the same crisp edges, you might need to go to a barber.

Hart’s High-Top Fade

In the 90s, Kevin Hart, and practically every black comedian in Hollywood, sported a high-top haircut with faded sides. The main feature of this hairstyle is the thick top styled up and then cut to a flat top.

It is complex and challenging to style this haircut independently since you must constantly check if the top of your hair is already flat.

How to Get and Maintain Kevin Hart Haircuts

Step 1 – Choose the right style

Choose the right style by considering the texture and thickness of your hair first. You can try the flat top fade if you have relatively thick and curly hair. On the other hand, if you have thinning hair and a receding hairline, you can try wearing a thin buzz cut with crisp edges.

This is also your only option if you have straight hair.

Step 2 – Visit a barber

If you get a flat top fade, doing it yourself will be difficult, if not downright impossible, if you are not a trained barber. To get the top right, do it from another person’s perspective.

Meanwhile, the buzz cut with faded sides is so simple that you can achieve it on your own using balding clippers and two mirrors, though getting the edges crisp requires practice. Avoid doing it yourself if you want to create complicated haircuts like the curly undercut.

Step 3 – Maintain

One advantage of Kevin Hart’s haircuts is that they are tremendously easy to maintain. For instance, a buzzcut is maintenance-free and essential for actors with beards.

Other than shampooing and conditioning every other day, there’s nothing else you need to do. The same goes for the flat top fade haircut since it only requires drying your hair thoroughly using a hair dryer on low.

Step 4 – Use some hair products

If your hair is this short, a hair pomade is unnecessary. An essential product is a good leave-in conditioner to keep your hair from getting too oily without shampooing for a couple of days. If you want to make your hair shiny and moisturized, apply some hair oil.


Where does Kevin Hart usually get his haircut?

John “Burgandee” Clausell is Kevin Hart’s barber and has been styling the comedian’s hair for a long time, ever since Hart started in show business.

Clausell is also the owner and operator of the Platinum Cuts barbershop. He does some of the crispest haircut line designs in the industry right now.

What is the best way to style my hair like Kevin Hart?

The first thing that you need to do is ensure that your hair is thick enough that it would be possible to style it into sponge haircuts in the first place.

After that, get the services of a professional barber and then tell him what kind of Kevin Hart haircut you want. You need to say that in advance if you wish subtle nuances added.
