Contrary to popular belief, you CAN see John Cena – so much that fans worldwide have tried to copy his style. Fans have copied the way he wore his hat backwards, his attitude, and even his hairstyle. Yes! His hairstyle!
He hasn’t had many hairstyles but enough for people to copy since unlike him we do not have multiple hairdressers coming to our place to give us a haircut that suits our face. So, let’s settle on copying the WWE wrestling star’s hairstyle.
Let’s look at a few of the wrestling star’s haircuts that we can recreate. And to be honest, if you are doing these haircuts by your self then the John Cena Haircuts are the best.
The Best John Cena Haircut Over the Years
The appearance of John Cena hardly ever changed during his WWE years (Though he did have a pretty outrageous haircut at one point). It was when he actively started his acting career when he started experimenting with his haircut.
As long as he was in the ring, there hardly was any change in his haircut.
The Buzz Cut
This is a classic John Cena Haircut – the one which we identify him with from WWE. This is a very basic buzz cut with a high fade. He has completely shaved sides and a fuller top compared to the sides but is still short.
When John Cena had this haircut he was probably thinking about how his opponents couldn’t grab his short hair making it difficult for them to dominate him.
How to Get This Look?
Before getting an extremely short haircut, barbers ask you if you are sure about it, because if a mistake is made then it is very difficult to cover it up. This style highlights your asymmetrical bumps, scars, or even a bad hairline.
Meaning, go for it only when you are 100% sure.
Get the Right Tools
To get this look right you need the right tools for it i.e., a clipper, a hand-held mirror, and a vacuum cleaner to clean the mess up.
Get the Right Length
Choose the right length for your buzz cut – one you will be comfortable in flaunting. Also the length until where your fade will go to. Getting this right is very crucial since you will be stuck with this hair length for good 3 weeks.
Give yourself the Cut
Take the clippers and cut your hair short all over and when you come to the sides you go for the lower guard size. Use that length to give yourself the shaved look at the side and do NOT go over the line you have designated for the fade.
The Military Crew Cut
John Cena always respected the US military – you could make it out by seeing his WWE walkouts. He loved the military so much that he started sporting the same look as those in the military. The sides were totally shaved, almost a skinhead in the sides, and had a similar top as his buzz cut. But with the sides almost bald the hair at the top looked longer than it actually was.
How to Get this John Cena hairstyle?
You can get this look similar to the buzz cut, but instead of going just a bit shorter on the guard for the sides, you remove the guard. You cannot make an error when you are using the clippers without the guard.
This look of John Cena’s is related to his buzz-cut style, while it just differs in the length of the hair at the top. The length is longer in this look than in the buzz cut look.
The John Cena Mohawk
John Cena had two types of mohawks over the years. One where the top is short and one where the top is long and square.
To be honest, even John Cena would think of the second type as a mistake but to be fair to him it allowed him to stand out amongst the other wrestlers during his early years. Further down along the line, he had another mohawk but stayed true to his buzz-cut style. Even though it was a mohawk it was similar to his other hairstyle – the short buzz cut.
The new version of the mohawk is much better than the older version, his hairstyles evolved along with him.
How to get this haircut (type 1)?
- Determine the width of your mohawk.
- Determine the length you desire.
- Use the clippers to make it the same length all over.
- Remove the guard of the clipper and remove the hair up to the decided width.
How to get this haircut (type 2)?
- Determine the width of the mohawk.
- Use your clippers without the guard to remove the hair up to the decided width.
- Shave it up properly by using the blade.
- Keep the length of the mohawk of about half a finger and cut the rest off.
- Use products like wax or clay to make it stand up.
“The Marine” John Triton John Cena Haircut
This was probably where John Cena started respecting the US military. John Cena played the role of John Triton a marine. I
In this movie, he had a pretty tame hairstyle – one which you might find everyone sporting. This hairstyle isn’t very difficult to cut or maintain. The overall style is of the long hair type but it is still a manageable length. Short sides, long top, and the front made to spike using products like gel. He used the gel which would give himself the wet look to let the front of his hair stay up in place.
How to get this haircut?
This hairstyle is very simple to get just give the sides a fade, not a sharp one rather a very light one – to maintain that square shape of the head. After the shortening of the side of the head, all you have to do is spike the top and front of your hair.

Long Hair John Cena
The previous picture of his haircut was what it looked like when he returned to WWE after years.
When he maintained this style it looked really good on him. John Cena grew out his hair and combed it with a side part. Almost like a schoolboy haircut. Very little product used to maintain those straight locks of his.
How to get this hairstyle?
Just grow your hair out from the buzz cut fade and let it do its thing. Leave it be just comb it daily so that you don’t look homeless to the people around you.
