Trending Hairstyles For Men

No one ever really thinks about hairstyles for men, it is a subject that is simply not discussed. Women have no problem discussing their hairstyles with each other but rarely do men hold conversations like this.  Men’s hairstyles do change from year to year but they do not change as drastically as women’s do. Most of the time they go from short to mid length as being the hippest new way to wear your hair. It sounds very simple.

 

There is more to it than that! A well manicured man is one that keeps abreast of the latest styles including their hair style. The wrong style on a mature gentlemen will quickly date them and make them look older than they are. A fresh style that is up to date shears off the years.

 

Thinning Hairstyles

 

Unfortunately thinning hair for a lot of men is unavoidable. Having the proper cut can help to add volume where you need it the most. The classic crown cut is the answer. The cut is done by keeping the hair shorter on the sides and layers are left on the top and crown a little longer to give the appearance of a fuller head of hair. A “high and tight” also works well for thinning hair to give the illusion of having more hair. The high and tight is a military cut where the sides and back of the hair is cut down to nearly nothing while the top of the hair is left longer.

 

The Peak Cut

 

The peak cut has remained popular the last few years except the length of the peak has been longer or shorter over the last decade or so. The peak cut hairstyle is achieved when all the hair around the head is cut the same length but the top front of the hair is left longer, this hairstyle is sometimes referred to as the faux hawk. To get this hairstyle ask your stylist to cut the hair all around the same length while leaving some of the pieces at the top front of the hair. At home to get the look all you need is a little gel to get that longer hair to stand up a bit.

 

Curly Hair ManCurly Hairstyles

 

Classic curly hair styles for men have been to keep a sort of controlled look. While the shorter controlled look is still very much in style a little longer looser beach look is also in style as well. The best thing about curly hair is that it is actually easier to get out the door. Have your stylist cut your hair all around to the length you like, use a bit of hair gel to give your curls direction and you are out the door.

 

Classic Side Part

 

For a classic polish look the side part hairstyle never goes out of style! The look is achieved by cutting the hair on the sides a bit shorter than the hair on top and parting the hair so that the top of the hair lays to one side. Using a good grooming cream can help to keep hair in place.
