A hairstyle, hairdo, or haircut refers to the styling of hair, usually on the human scalp. Sometimes, this could also mean an editing of facial or body hair. The fashioning of hair can be considered an aspect of personal grooming, fashion, and cosmetics, although practical, cultural, and popular considerations also influence some hairstyles.

Bismihi ta'ala

There would not be any problem in which hairstyle you choose, or shaving parts of your head, as long as it is something acceptable and befitting for a mu'min. It should not be something that stands our as Islamically inappropriate, or not acceptable by religious circles, or would bring about criticism from others. 

Fashion yourself in a way that is nice and elegant, but also befitting for a pious religious person, and always making sure it is appropriate so you do not subject yourself to negative criticism.

With prayers for your success.
