Viking Haircut: What Is It?

It evidently made its way into the mainstream and has recently made a major comeback in men’s hairstyle fashion.
One of the best things about the Viking haircut is that it is a blend of many of the popular men’s hairstyles today. A sexy, rugged haircut with facial hair is the most popular look for the Viking hairstyle. It is so popular, that many women are even sporting the Viking look, sans the facial hair.

And the Viking is versatile as there are so many ways to rock this hot look. You can definitely find a way to embrace this style while encompassing your own unique flair.
In essence, the Viking hairstyle consists of a haircut of any length (short, medium or long) with either the back or side partially or entirely shaved into a style such as an undercut or fade. The longer hair is usually then styled in a top knot, man bun, ponytail or even a braid. Or you can embrace your punk rock side with a sporty Mohawk or faux hawk. Facial hair such as a goatee or bushy beard would make your Viking haircut even more epic.
Men of all ages and walks of life are embracing this hip and happening hairstyle. You can opt for a shorter, more refined look or let your locks grow as long as you like. That’s the best part about a Viking Hairstyle!
