With this year’s textured look to a new level comes another trend for men’s hairstyles for 2017, styles with lots of movement and flow. Instead of being combed back with a comb, these fresh looks are styled with fingers for plenty of volume, a natural finish and the appearance of movement .
This hot trend takes classic men’s hairstyles such as the smooth back, the pomp and the side part and reinvents them with a looser, chaotic finish. To maintain the look, opt for a medium hold product or a malleable pomade that can be reworked throughout the day. A hair dryer is also an advantage to get this natural-looking volume. Heat helps the hair maintain its shape, so that styles last longer and fewer products are needed.
1. Structured pomp
This fresh version of the Pomp fade retains this classic shape, but with lots of texture and artful movements.
2. Wavy slick back
This trend works well with natural waves. Use a curl defining product for hold and perfect waves.
3. Messy texture
The flow trend also works for short men’s haircuts. An advantage of this trend is that it works with hair, cowls and growth patterns.
4th River + Line Up
Finger styled hair contrasts with a squared arrangement and blurry fading.
5. Lots of pompadour
In contrast to the greasy pomp, this fresh style is dull with one or two loose strands.
6. Tapered haircut
Movement and flow can extend over the entire head, from front to back.
7. Curly side hairstyle
Men with wavy and curly hair already have a lot of natural movement. It’s about finding the right cut to enhance the natural texture, like this modern side piece.
8. Structured beat back
The blow back is a men’s hairstyle that involves natural movement. It’s a smooth back that looks like it’s blown back by the wind. Get the look with a splash volume from the hair dryer and texture from your fingers.
9. Long up
More length means more flow.
10. Side part hairstyle + taper
Long hair all over the body with a tapered neckline means it flows everywhere. A side panel and faded sideburns break up this natural movement.
11. Long smooth back + beard
This textured styling works well with a full beard.
12th river + middle fade
Hairstyles with movement and flow also work and look good with finer hair types. The volume and texture strengthen the thinner hair for a fuller, thicker appearance.
13. Long comb over hairstyle
This mid-length version is another way to rock the side comb. It combines support and loose hair.
14. Loose waves
To preserve these free-flowing styles, Wave is recommended or added for a structured volume and sense of motion.
15. Messy Hair + Low Fade
This cool hairstyle for men with thick hair combines chunky texture at the top with a low fade.
16. Long side part type
This fresh look brings medium-length hair and styles into a classic shape for a whole new style.
17th side hairstyles + fringes
This is a simple style and an excellent summer choice. Work a touch of product through the hair for texture and hold and you’re done.
