My son wants to get the same hairstyle as Macgyver, Does anyone know how Mac's hair is cut or styled?

It's called a mullet. It's short in the front (and on top of the head) and long in the back. Best might be you take a couple of headshots of Mac (front, side) with you to the hairdresser :)

Sure "MacGyver" was seen with more or less highlights - that changed over the years.
In the first season or even better in "Ordinary Heroes" you can realize best the hair's color which I think is natural, with less highlights.
Later on in MacGyver, it went more and more blonded ("bleached"?).
The mullet was quite trendy in Germany in the 80ies, but not everybody had these highlights. Often, the color remained natural - depending on taste and perhaps money, or the quality of the hair...
... which seems to be no problem for MacGyver / RDA :D

Oh yeah it was bleached all right and got more and more light over the years because they (his producers or whatever) did not like his natural brown hair. And I guess he started going gray too later. So they kept making it more and more light. RDA once said he was told he looked like 'Shit on a stick' with his natural hair and so they made him bleach it :p

But I guess the question was rather about the cut, not the color if I got it right.

I'd say it was straight. RDA's hair is straight. I don't know whether it's thick... or was thick... it seems soft and a bit wavy now. :)

Yes and the longer it gets the more wavy it gets
