IS YOUR HAIRSTYLE TRENDING?
In this week's blog, it's all about knowing what's trending in 2018. Over the years, hair styles have developed into styles we never thought would become a trend but sometimes it's only right us men switch it up sometimes! Let's not be boring now...In 2018 we're bringing back old styles and showing off the newest styles! The most popular haircuts will likely continue to be fades, undercuts, pompadours, comb overs, quiffs, slick backs, and even man buns or top knots (if you can pull them off that is!).
Lets take a look at the most popular men’s hairstyles in 2018 so far!
THE LONG SWEEP
Over the recent seasons long hair has been making a steady comeback and i think it's here to stay...To maintain a masculine feel with shoulder-length hair, opt for something sleeker and more refined. To style, all you need to do is run some medium-shine cream or pomade through damp hair with your fingers and follow up with a comb to work the hair back from your hairline to its ends. Simple and undeniably chic.
THE SOFT PARTING
"This cut has shorter layers and texture throughout. The sides can be kept longer with scissors only, or a low fade would look good too,” says Richard Tucker of Ruffian's barbershop in London’s Shoreditch. There is no specific parting line, but more of a gentle sweep to the side for a more relaxed look.
LOW TOP CLEAN FADE
Thinking of going short but not quite bald? This is your simplest route to creating an edgy, new military style. Think grade one back and sides, with a grade six on top, and ideally get your barber to scissor-cut the top to that length so you can get a little more texture into it, rather than leaving it too rounded.
THE MESSY TYPE
In order to achieve this look, you will need to grow at least 3 inches of hair to get lots of texture and movement into it, not forgetting the sides of your hair needs added length too. If you are growing your hair, this is the perfect cut to make it through the awkward middle stage.
DARE TO GO BLONDE?
Us guys aren't always as daring as women however we can still be adventurous! “This gives it a more textured, lived-in look akin to the skateboard grunge era," says Tucker. This look can be high maintenance but remember...use a deep conditioner once a week and invest in some purple shampoo to stop that bright white mellowing to a yellow.
