The business man cut is very traditional and is a short more conservative hair cut. As the name implies you look very professional. This type of hairstyle can have many variations but the basics of the cut include tapering on the sides and back with a part on one side of the head. The fade is another short men's hairstyle that has many variations. There is the flat top fade, low fade, temple fade, Brooklyn Fade and Philly fade to name but a few. This is a type of tapered cut. Generally the hair is cut very close on the back and sides and then is tapered upwards.
For punk short hairstyles you need to incorporate an unusual hair color such as fluorescent pink, green or blue. You can also only color sections of your hair or your whole head. It is possible to do color stripes, color the tips of your hair or just the bangs. The color needs to stand out so if you have very dark hair then platinum blond tips are a good choice. The main factor when getting a punk cut is that it should not be any cut that is considered mainstream. This can usually be overcome by having unusual configurations such as long shaggy hair on top and a short buzz cut on the bottom. Asymmetrical cuts also work. It is also very typical to have words shaved into your head.
