Brides, Take Note: Here Are Some Wedding Hairstyles and Cuts Your Groom Can Pull-Off!

Connected to the Beard

A tapered cut that is shorter on the sides but remains connected to the beard creates a clean look, thanks to the smooth line. It still looks very polished but with a bit of edge!

Clean and Cropped

For the guys who prefer much shorter hair! This is another clean and polished option that also looks good for a beach wedding.

Side Part with Waved Front

Guys can wear voluminous hair really well, too! The volume can all be focused on the top. For a more laidback vibe, the front can be a little side swept or wavy. This is great for outdoor weddings with a more relaxed ambiance.

Some inspo from TV personality Robi Domingo! To add a bit of fun and vibrance to a formal look, opt for a spiked type of ‘do. It doesn’t have to be too drastic, just a little height up front will already add a touch of pizzaz.

Classic and timeless! The pompadour has been around for ages. It’s a hairstyle that features combing the hair upwards and back to create the “pomp.” A vintage hairstyle like this will complement any theme and outfit!

This is a minimalist look that doesn’t require a lot of styling but still looks so sharp and classy. Maintaining this cut just involves a trip to the barber a little closer to the wedding date to touch up the trim.

Crew Cut

Also known as the military cut, the crew cut is another simple style that is longer on top and shorter or fades closer to the ears. For a bit more drama, you can keep the top long and slick it back with gel, while the sides are much shorter.

Long curly hair means beautiful volume, height, and texture! And we’re loving how this groom rocks curls with an undercut. It’s giving drama, and freshness!

Bonus Tips

Prioritize Comfort and Being Yourself. Grooms, always aim to look like yourself even if it’s for a formal event. Go with a hairstyle you’re most comfortable with, something polished yet not too drastic. There’s no need to conform to a style nor a standard, because there’s no such thing!

Schedule Trims or Cuts at Leisure. The grooms will be able to gauge what works best! He’ll know the length he’s most comfortable with. So a trip to the barber can be scheduled a few weeks or even a few days before the wedding.

Grooms Can Have a Beauty Session on the Big Day, Too. The more elaborate hair and makeup sessions are usually reserved for the brides. However, the grooms can have their own HMUA time, too! Polish off a couple of stray hairs, a little powder to keep the shine at bay, maybe some balm for dry lips, and you’ll be good to go. Trust in the expertise of a makeup artist to help the groom look as dashing as can be!
