There are a lot of reasons you might want a haircut that takes little-to-know maintenance. Even if you wear a hat, all these styles need is a quick run-through with the fingers.

This particular style is great option for someone looking for style with almost no work. The hair is cropped short all over the head, But a bit of extra length is added on top. Then just apply a dab of pomade and simply run it the side to side over the top of the head, to add texture and separation. 15 seconds and you're done.

Just a bit of pomade adds shine and separation. For those who need to wear a hat or knit cap, this style works well as the short sides minimize the "hat head," while the top stays flat.
