Hairstyles for Latino Guys

Additional Info

Smooth, suave, sexy, and sophisticated -- four words usually associated with the Latin influence on modern culture in movies, music and television. And the influence doesn’t stop when it comes to style, especially men's hairstyles. Latino guys, thanks to the diverse nature of their locks, sport some of the best haircuts in men’s fashion. Due to its characteristically dark color, coarse texture and thickness, their hair transitions beautifully between shorter, street-smart styles and longer, more cosmopolitan cuts. It easily runs the gamut of stylish ‘dos. You just have to find your styleand your inspiration. To help you do just that, below is a list of great men's hairstyles for Latino guys.


Close Shave
Mysteriously cool is the guy who sports a closely shaved head. Buzzed ever so closely to the scalp -- but not shaved completely -- this haircut leaves only a hint of hair, but makes a huge impression. It screams both urban chic and self-assured, lending itself to hipsters and badasses alike. No one proves this theory more than Wilmer Valderrama. His closely shaven mane demonstrates his street-savvy, smooth style, while also complementing his confident image. The close shave is not only the ideal cut for warmer seasons and climates, but also the perfect look for guys who like to make bold statements in simple ways.

How to get it: Ask your barber for an all-over clipper cut using the one or two guard (depending on how close you want to go).


High and Tight
Need to earn some street cred? Then go with a high and tight look. Closely shaven on the sides and slightly longer on the top, this cut affirms urban deftness. No doubt the high and tight comes across as masculine. Alex Rodriguez defines this style like no other. One of today’s most acclaimed athletes, Rodriguez's fashionable hairstyle says it all: hip, suave, and unapologetic. The high and tight works best for nonconformists and out-and-about “playas” alike.

How to get it: Visit any old-school barbershop and ask for this cut by name; the barbers there will know what you’re asking for and will be accomplished at delivering it.


Traditional Crop
Guys who like a more classic, professional style should go with a traditional crop. This stylishly tailored haircut, which leaves length on the top and tapers down the sides, demonstrates a real commitment to timeless, sophisticated fashion. And given today’s classic styling, this hairstyle grounds itself in tradition, yet lends itself to more contemporary looks. Boxing great Oscar De La Hoya is proof positive of how the traditional crop works for the modern man. His up-to-date take on this particular 'do recreates a style that is both classic and contemporary. This handsome cut works great for anyone, especially those 9-to-5ers who have impeccable style.

How to get it: Ask your hair stylist to leave some length on the top (at least a couple of inches) and to taper the sides to be slightly shorter. If you clipper-cut the sides, don’t go with anything shorter than a number four guard.


Razored Crop
For the trendsetter, the razored crop places you on the cutting edge. Thanks to its spiky, uneven layers, this dashing ‘do establishes a swanky, chic look just beyond the lines of conservative fashion. The razored crop creates an amazing paradox: It’s both elegantly shabby and randomly put together all at once. No man's style illustrates this point more than that of Diego Luna. His razored locks are carefully disheveled, creating a professional and dapper image that’s edgy and smart. Since this ‘do shifts brilliantly between a day at the office and a night out on the town, it makes the ideal cut for those working their way up the corporate ladder (or who work in artistic industries).

How to get it: First, you’ll want to pay a visit to a reputable salon. Ask your stylist to leave most of the length on top and some on the sides, then to use a razor to blend it all together, which will create jagged, uneven layers.


Medium Length
Spruce up your professional image with a medium-length hairstyle. Though it may seem a bit unconventional at first, this cut works wonderfully for the more traditional guy: Its simplistic yet classical appeal offers a tasteful option to those who adhere to an understated and refined style. The true brilliance of this first-class haircut is exemplified by Benjamin Bratt. By sporting medium-length locks, he has a self-confident, professional decorum that conveys true poise and timeless sophistication. Just like Bratt’s hairstyle demonstrates, a medium-length haircut works perfectly for the consummate, fashion-forward professional.

How to get it: Ask your stylist to leave a couple of inches on the top and an inch or so on the sides, adding texture all over, so that you can achieve a messy, ruffled look with a bit of styling gel.


Long Layers
Long layers are the way to go for the guy who is both suave and self-assured. There’s no doubt the ladies find this hairstyle irresistible thanks to the sexy, mysterious vibe it creates. Long layers quickly catapult you out of the average-guy realm; guys who master this look exude the utmost confidence not only in their style, but also in themselves. If you need evidence, look no further than Benicio Del Toro. His long-layered mane conveys an ultra-smooth attitude, confirming his bold, defiant and placid demeanor. Replicating Del Toro’s long layers works best for any guy who has style and machismo to spare.

How to get it: Visit a salon and request your stylist cut your hair in long layers that frame your face. Since you’ll need to invest time in growing you hair out pretty long for this one, take a picture along just to make sure you get it right the first time.

Thanks to its sexy, sultry attributes, the Latin influence is everywhere -- and rightfully so. It’s a culture that has significantly influenced men's fashion and grooming -- which is definitely worth being proud of.
