Just like the trends in clothing changes, so does the trends in hairstyles. During the latest years most guys have been wearing slim fit shirts and skinny jeans accompanied by tight and sharp hairstyles.
With sharp hairstyles we’re of course referring to the undercut and other military inspired scrapes with very short hair on the sides. Besides that we also had the topknot and man bun for those with longer hair.
But now it’s time to LOOSEN UP and search for a softer look like the FRINGE CUT, the MIDDLE PARTING, the MESSY BEDHEAD HAIR, the CAESAR CUT or more COLORFUL DYE EXPERIMENTS.
Are you guys ready to examine the different hairstyle trends for men in 2017? Well, let’s help you through them and prepare you for the new year!
Fringe cut, bangs, face curtains or man fringe – you better get used to the various expressions. In 2017 more and more of your friends will probably convert to the fringe cut. Perhaps you will escort your own bangs downwards as well?
The fringe cut comes in different appearances. You can cut and style it according to numerous aspects: 1) short, medium or long, 2) high or flat to the forehead, 3) glossy or matte, 4) messy, curly, rounded or sharp in terms of shape or 5) side-swept or straight.
But each man’s fringe will also differ in itself from the next one, depending on the density, texture, color and natural fall of your own hair.
If you have defined cheekbones the fringe will balance out your overall face. If you have receding hairlines, it’ll add that coverage you’ve always yearned for.
So go ahead and experiment with your fringe!
We’ve seen lots of side partings in 2016. BUT the side parting will now crawl towards the middle of the forehead and become a middle parting.
If you have been rocking a man bun lately, the MIDDLE PARTING would be a safe next-level-choice if you don’t feel ready to go completely short. Fortunately, the middle parting typically still requires semi long hair.
Most partings wont centralize completely on your head, however. Instead they’ll line up dislocated 1-3 cm to the left or right of the absolute centre. And the very parting line wont make it’s way towards the top back like a dead straight highway as we saw on Nick Carter back in the 90s.
On most 2017 middle partings the line will reach more roughly for the top back. The hair straws will blend and create a more faded and subtle parting line.
We need to point out that the middle parting requires a little longer hair on the sides – at least if you prefer not to look like Kim Jong Un and his military inspired skin fade middle parting.
Messy Bedhead Hair
The MESSY BEDHEAD HAIR gives you a great look that says: “Wh… what? Nah, I didn’t style my hair this morning, I just woke up like this…” – even though you didn’t, you sly fox.
Overall, the new hairstyle trends of 2017 will still require hair wax and/or pre-styling spray. The main idea with the products, however, will be to add texture and volume rather than noticeable full control. You’re going for the messy look.
Don’t get us wrong – we’ll still style (and control) our hair, but the aim will be to create the illusion of not having spent too much time manipulating our hair.
