2018 has ushered in a variety of hair trends for men. Some continue and build on last year’s looks, some riffs on classic men’s hair and others are brand new styles.
One word that you will see again and again is texture. Whether it’s a cropped look or a medium hairstyle, this year’s all about texture. Separation adds dimension and volume to the hair. For men with wavy or curly hair, this means that the hair has to grow longer so that the natural texture remains visible. Bringing texture to the next level, prickly styles are on a grand scale, but with modern textures like thick spikes or a messy, disheveled finish.
In addition to texture, the popularity of haircuts has also reinvented the pony for men. There are so many ways to wear front fringe, including a blunt line, diagonal or jagged teeth.
Hair designs have evolved in recent years. In addition to bold graphics, fine lines and shaped cutouts are other ways to express themselves. While bland haircuts are still popular, if you want to try something different, you can instead go for a pair of scissors cut taper. Or you get a separation hairstyle with a defined line or step.
There are many classic men’s hairstyles, which will be strong in 2018. Taper haircuts are often styled pompadours or return. There are also short haircuts for all hair types including fine, thick, black and curly. Most of these retro styles are updated with textured styling, modern lines or bold lines.
