The Viking Undercut
If you're looking for a popular haircut that's part Viking and part hipster, look no further than the undercut . The Viking goes with all types of haircuts and styles, and it has been one of the top trends in terms of short side hairstyles in recent years. For example, you can combine a top knot, ponytail, or slicked back hair with an undercut.
Besides being easy to style , undercut hairstyles provide a ton of contrast. If you don't want to shave your head, the closest option is a Viking undercut or fade.
Shaved head with a beard
The shaved head and beard is a timeless Viking look. A bald head and a long, full beard can be especially great for men who have a receding hairline and want a rugged style. All you need is a trimmer and patience to grow your beard.
Long hair and long beard
If you have long lustrous hair , then skip the shaved head option and go for a long hairstyle with a beard. While long hair doesn't always look manly, a thick beard can deliver that tough, manly look.
Additionally, having a lot of hair makes it possible to work with a wide variety of Viking styles . Whether it is a ponytail, a man bun or a braided knot, men can change whenever they want with such a hair size.
Long ponytail with shaved sides
Also known as the "Bjorn Ironside" haircut in the Vikings series, a long ponytail with shaved sides is one of the coolest Viking hairstyles you can have. Especially when braided, this look is impressive and elegant .
