In addition to the fabulous fauxhawks I catalogued yesterday, readers sent in a bunch of other butch hair pics. Most non-'hawks fell into one of three categories: pomps, buzzes, and shaggy cuts. Let's take them one by one.
Pompadours (or "pomps") have been around for a long time. The main idea is that your hair is brushed up from your forehead in a way that makes your head look kind of tall. Think Elvis or Morrissey. Guys often wear them with big ol' sideburns. But in my opinion, you don't need sideburns to rock a great pomp. Pompadours also go well in combination with fauxhawks, and often the same haircut will allow you to style either one.
From Ashton Kutcher to Zac Efron, many Hollywood men have adopted the shaggy-haired look for varying lengths of time. Personally, the idea of having my bangs falling in my eyes ranks right up there with having long hair. But if you're less sensitive (read: wimpy) about this than I am, the shaggy look might be for you. These BW readers are rocking it.
Some minimalist butches like to shave off nearly all of their locks, going for a buzzed or nearly-buzzed look. I even heard from one buzzed butch who has a standing appointment with her barber every week. That's dedication. Justin Timberlake and Robert Pattinson can pull off the look with aplomb. Here are some BW readers who can do the same (or better!).
Of course, many butches' hairstyles don't fall neatly into any of the categories I've talked about. Below, I've made a slide show of some of the other pics I received. (I had trouble with 4-5 of the photos, so apologies if you sent in a pic and aren't here!) Some may inspire you to try a new style. Others may inspire you not to try one. I love seeing the huge range of butches brave enough to show their 'dos to the world. You guys rock!
In a comment to my last post, someone said that I must have the hottest readers on the planet. Admittedly, I've got to agree.
So, of the haircuts I featured yesterday and today, which are your favorites? Are there any styles I haven't covered that look great on butches?

As a butch that has tried just about every short style there is, I have to say that I am a fan of the pomp (currently my style). I love the Elvis/rockabilly feel that a real good pomp can give. Nothing says confidence like that!

I'm in the line up and I prefer to call my "pomp" the correct british term "quiff". Thanks Morrissey, for all of your inspiration...;)

I miss having my short hair :( I loved styling it in diff. ways :( I just cannot seem to find anyone who is able to get my "sideburns" right :( ...... I started with a faux hawk cut with the hair in front of my ears, "Sideburns" left longinsh. Kind of to my jawline. As my hair grew out it created the style I wanted. And I continued to go to the women who created my awsome fauxhawk turned skater cut.... Then she disappeared from my Salon :C :C I cannot find the girl who did my hair, nor can I get anyone to duplicate it :C Now it's long and I keep it in a low bun. I simply must find someone capable of scissoristic (:p lol dirty thought) sorcery!!
