New hair trends don’t infiltrate the men’s hair scene as frequently or abruptly as women’s trends. Trends in men’s hair are more subtler and the change is often gradual over time but suddenly it seems what was once popular is no longer being sported. Here is a run down of the most popular hairstyles for men and how to get it.
The Slick Back
This style has a high-fashion finish to deceive you. This slicked back look is actually a practical look. It keeps all of your hair off your face and in one place all day but still shows off your unique style.
You should ask your stylist for a tight fade around the side and back for contrast but you also want a good deal of length on the top for the slick back. If you have thick hair you should ask your stylist to remove some of the weight with thinning scissors or point cutting to reduce volume and make it easier to style.
How to Style the Slick Back Look
You must use a slightly wet, dense styling product. You can try different products to determine which one works best for you. Some will give you a ‘wet’ look while others provide a ‘shine; finish. You can also choose a few different ways how you style your slicked back look. Perhaps a quaff or a pompadour would work. You can switch it up daily too.
The Fringe For Men
(Long On Top, Short On the Sides/Back)
If you prefer your hairstyle to have a little more hair then a fringe could be a great option. This years fashion shows have proved that this forward fringe hairstyle is making a big comeback. The fringe hairstyle is preferred for people who have manageable hair because when its hot or humid, the length or thickness can become uncontrollable. Ask your stylist if she could cut the fringe a little shorter and remove some of the weight.
You can style your fringe brushed to the side or wear it straight down. If you have a wavy texture then you might prefer a side-swept fringe. This style is all about an unkempt, natural and textured look so don’t shy away from products like sea-salt spray.
The Relaxed Quiff for Wavy/Curly hair
This style is perfect for men with wavy/curly hair, but you can always add some product to get this look if you have straight hair. This look is simple and requires minimal maintenance, which is ideal for warmer months.
A natural and loose quaff is on trend this year. These looks come off as effortlessly cool and give a nonchalant vibe that is both endearing and appealing. If your hair is thick and wavy then simply add a smoothing cream or leave-in conditioner when it’s damp and then style.
