Not a lot of time is spent discussing men’s hairstyles, at least not in comparison to the many styles for women’s hair. Most men could probably name a decent number of women’s hairstyles, but both men and women would struggle to come up with even a handful of men’s. Why is this? Is it because men don’t spend as much time sculpting their hair, do they not care as much, or is just not enough attention given to men from hair stylists? The truth is that there are a multitude of great hairstyles out there for men right now, and they all look great, the key is finding one that works for you. A great way to test out what might look good on you is through specific apps that allow you to superimpose your face into many of the following hot hair trends for men. Let’s take a look at some of the hottest and most popular hairstyles right now.
High and Tight
This is the prohibition era hairstyle that was often seen in period movies, but has now become quite popular among young professionals. In order to make it work, you’ll have to have straight hair; curls won’t work. The sides are buzzed extremely short, while the top is left at least a couple inches long, then combed straight back and gelled.
Everyone from Brad Pitt to Ashton Kutcher has been spotted with the shoulder length hairdo in recent years. This is a simple look to maintain, it just takes some time to get there. Also, please make sure you get it trimmed up once every month or so, you don’t want to end up looking like Arnold in the Conan the Barbarian.
Surprisingly, this messy hairstyle with forward-combed hair has become a popular trend. Most men wouldn’t think about having bangs, but this look has worked on the runways and for fashion models recently. Instead of combing directly forward in a classic bang look, try combing a bit to the side for a more angular look.
This messy look works on anyone with thick or wavy hair, but if you have very fine or straight hair it won’t work so well. While it looks like you just got out of bed and forgot to fix your hair, this look actually takes quite a bit of work to look good. You can spend a ton of time with gel or wax trying to get the perfect look, but we suggest just adding a bit to your towel dried hair, and messing it up pretty rough before touching it up slightly with a comb.
This popular cut is a mix between a buzz cut and a fringe. Keep it short on the sides and long on the top, and if you’re feeling bold, brush the front over your forehead for a more genuine Roman look. Think Russell Crowe in The Gladiator! It doesn’t get hotter than that!!
