Popular men’s hairstyles in 2017 are a little different from the trends of last year. Overall, we see more length, more texture and more clutter.
As 2016 turned away from these Mad Men-inspired looks by trading glossy mat products, this year’s styles are looser and less structured.
Take a look at these new ways to wear the smooth back, the side piece, the spikes, the high tip and more.
1. Tousled men’s hairstyles
There is styling and then there is over-styling. This cut and style works with the hair flow for easy wearing and an ultra cool look.
2. Curly high top
This year’s texture trend means men with natural waves and curls will let go of their hair instead of cutting or straightening it. This cool high top features a fade plus hair design with long curls at the top.
3. Structured spikes
Texture is changing in all men’s hairstyles and others. Spikes grow thicker and point in all directions, not just up.
4. Structured Crop + High Fade
This is one of the most popular haircuts of the year. While the front edge is best recommended for long, diamond, triangle and heart shapes, it can also look good on others. Talk to your barber to see if this is a good cut for you.
5. Spike Quiff
This is one of the best short haircuts for men because it looks longer than it is but is easy to wear. You can also cut this cut into spikes, something messy or a fauxhawk .
6. Messy Texture + Drop Soon Fade
A great option for thick or wavy hair, this cut leaves a lot of length to work on top. This messy style uses a touch of product for a certain definition and shape. The fade starts high and goes down to the skin, raising the natural hairline.
7th side hairstyle
The side part hairstyle is one of those looks more texture and length in 2017. Use a comb to share hair and work hair over the opposite side, but finish with your fingers to create some thicker pieces and tousled conclusion.
8. Slick back and forth
Slicked-back styles are still in vogue, but with modern updates. This cool version with short hair raises the hairline and combs the hair on one side. The hair on the crown is combed forward to lie flat. This is a good example of how you can tailor a style to the specifics of your hair.
9. Platinum side part hair
This medium length hair with lots of volume would stand out by itself, but the platinum color takes it to the next level.
10. Mid-length hair
Longer hair can actually be easier to style than short. Medium-length hair has more weight, which prevents hair from sticking straight up and has more surface area for the product. Of course, the secret for many of the best men styles is blow drying. A few minutes of hot air will train your hair in place, add tons of volume and create a hold with minimal product throughout the day.
11. Blow Back + Neck Taper
The blow hair is exactly what it sounds like. The hair is blown back with a bit of volume and a hint of clutter. This version shows thick hair, with a low neck cone for an ultra-clean finish.
12. Long on top hairstyle for wavy hair
If you have a natural hair texture, a cut like this is a stylish and manageable way to let it out. The hair at the top is cut to improve the wave while the volume is removed. The high bleaching on the sides keeps the cut clean and easy to wear.
13. Short Curly Hair + Line Up
Philadelphia 76ers Center Joel Embiid is all about this natural texture. This is the shortest of Afro with this signature rounded shape with a contrasting rim at the top of the hairline.
14. Middle length side part of hairstyle
It’s such a cool and modern way to rock the side part. With a lot of height and waves in the style, the side part highlights how long the hair is and transforms what could be a chaotic style into something wanted.
15. Short hairstyle for thick hair
One of the cool features of 2017 hairstyles is hair in all directions, but not necessarily in a messy bedhead fashion. This short cut for thick hair leaves a lot of weight on the top and adds some wavy height. The defined part and the middle fade effect complete the controlled finish of this high texture style.
