Short Hairstyles for Men: Straight Hair Pictures, Tips and Ideas
Straight hair is an easy hair type to style and it is suitable for all short hairstyles for men. Thus, this thread will cover all straight-haired short hair styles.

As with many of our other hairstyle guides for all hair types, this thread aims to give you plenty of inspiration through plenty of straight hair style pictures. Likewise, you're free to ask any hair-styling questions or post your own advice, experience or pictures. Furthermore, we will also cover which are the best hair products for straight hair. But, to give you an idea, the vast majority of hair products for men are suitable for short straight hair.

What is straight hair?

Straight hair is hair that grows evenly and straight (i.e. without bending) infinitely. The opposite of straight hair is curly hair, and, while curly hair has 3 hair types of its own (wavy hair, coiled hair and kinky hair), straight hair is a single hair type. You either have it or you don't have it.

If you're unsure of your hair type, then see our hair type guide for men which goes through the 4 male hair types and which explains with more details and pictures what's straight hair.

What is short hair?

Short hair is any hair that is shorter than 2 inches. Hair that grows longer than 2 inches (up to 6 inches) is classified as medium length hair. On the other hand, hair that is of a short buzz cut hair length (less than 1/8 of an inch) is classified as near-shaved hair. As an example, most military haircuts for men are of a near-shaved hair length.

Another useful guide that we have in this forum is our hair length guide for men which goes through all the hair lengths for men's hair and also uses pictures to describe each hair length, including short hair and regardless of hair type.

Pictures of short hairstyles for straight-haired men:

By far, the best way to give you plenty of hairstyle ideas and inspiration is through hairstyling pictures. Thus, I am posting below a big set of straight hairstyles with short hair. More sets of hairstyling pictures will be posted on this thread as well as advice and tips on short hair, so bookmark this thread for future reference in your hair styling efforts! Smile

If you'd like to see hairstyling pictures of other hair lengths and hair types, then search around the forum as we have plenty of hairstyle guides. Two examples of specific hair type styling guides include the following long wavy hairstyles guide and this medium length curly hairstyles guide.

By the way, in some of these pictures of short hair, you will notice that sometimes the hair curves a little in the hairstyle. This is achieved with the actual hair styling as straight hair doesn't curve, but, because of the extreme malleability of straight hair, it is easy to curve and bend (albeit slightly) straight hair.

Cool hairstyle ideas for Asian men and getting the best products for straight hair!
Hair products for short straight hair styles:

By far and for straight hair, both styling waxes and styling gels are the best hair products. Men with straight hair can pretty much use any hair products available (unlike men with curly hair), but hairstyling waxes and hairstyling gels are 2 excellent products to take advantage of the malleability and flexibility of straight hair at short lengths.

If you're interested in a good hair wax, then have a look at these recommended hair styling wax products listed in the link and which describes each hair wax for each texture and shine level that you want to achieve.

As for buying hair gel, have a look at our men's hair styling gels guide which recommended 5 great hairstyling gels that have different properties for all straight hairstyles!

Other great hairstyling products for straight hair include styling pomades, styling creams and hair spray. Pomades are to be used on slicked flat hairstyles, styling creams are to be used on loose messy hairstyles and hair spray is to be used on vertical (and even extreme) hairstyles for straight hair like the spike hair styles. For an excellent list of recommended pomades, styling creams and hair spray, have a look at our popular list of recommended hair products for men and browse each hair product section within the first post.

In terms of hair care, straight hair also needs the least amount of hair care, although that doesn't mean that you should skip it altogether. We still recommend that you use a good conditioner with your shampoo and that you use a conditioner at least once per week, even with short hair.

Using a leave-in conditioner is also a good idea for straight hair, although, with short, you don't need a leave-in conditioner and a regular conditioner once a week will suffice if you keep your straight locks short.

Short hairstyles for Asian men:

Straight hair is common among men of Asian descent, particularly in those whose heritage is from the Far East. Asian men with straight hair tend to have thick hair strands, which means that their hair tends to puff out (i.e. stand up) instead of lie low. Thus, for men with thick straight hair at short lengths, vertical hairstyles like spiky hair or messy styles are very favorable. Having said that, the medium length hairstyles for Asian men do altogether offer a huge range of styles that are possible thanks to the flexibility of thick hair at longer lengths. In fact, many males with straight hair (especially Asian men) find that a new world of hairstyle options opens to them as soon as they grow their hair a bit longer than what they're used to! Smile

If you have short straight hair, you still can make your thick straight hair lie low by using a good hairstyling wax or styling pomade. Simply use a strong hold wax or pomade and style your hair when it is damp so that the grip of the wax or pomade is enhanced. For great strong-hold waxes and pomades, see the links I've posted in the section before this one above. Whichever wax or pomade you end up choosing, make sure that it has a strong hold as this is key to ensure that your hair lies low and flat on your head all throughout the day.

Pictures of David Beckham's short hairstyles and other straight hair styles!
David Beckham achieved in the mid-2000s what few men had achieved until then: to become a hairstyle icon worldwide. Indeed, not only did David Beckham popularize hairstyles like the Faux Hawk or Metro Mullet in the UK and Europe but he also influenced the hairstyle trends in the United States, especially as soccer took off as a sports and the popularity of Read Madrid (Spanish soccer team) skyrocketed with players like David Beckham, Zidane, Luis Figo and Roberto Carlos.

David Beckham has worn a huge range of hairstyles, and, in the forum, we have already covered all hairstyles and haircuts of David Beckham but it's his short haircuts that are of interest to this thread as he has worn some "interesting" short hairstyles. You will have seen that I've included some pictures of David Beckham's short hairstyles in the first post of this guide, but I'll post some more below so that you get more hairstyle ideas of the man who once was (and still is, arguably) the most iconic hairstyle dude in the world.
