London Collections Men SS17: Hairstyle trends from the runway

Draw inspiration from the runways...  

This month saw the London Collections Men spring/summer 2017 show, which featured designers like Agi & Sam, Christopher Raeburn and J.W. Anderson. And, as well as showcasing a number of fashionable outfits, there were also some pretty cool hairstyles on offer.

So, if you’re looking for a new ‘do, you’re in luck! Just read below to discover some stylish hair trends, straight from the London Collections Men SS17 runways.

Forget classic, square high tops: they now come in a rounded shape, as seen in the Bobby Abley SS17 show. The model’s haircut features a sharp undercut, as well as a lot of length on top, and has been rounded near the corners to create a softer look. We reckon that this will become the new way to style your high top!

Editor’s tip: to style curly/afro hair, just apply the Lynx Natural Look Flexible Control Cream and use a hair sponge to work the product in. It’ll instantly help to define your hair texture.

It seems like the ‘wet look’ hair trend is still going strong, because the male models at the Tiger of Sweden SS17 show were all sent down the runway with slicked-back hair.

The stylish men kept their locks at a medium length, and we’re assuming that this sleek style required a hefty amount of hair gel.

Editor’s tip: Try using the VO5 Extreme Styling Sculpted Hold Wet Look Styling Gel  if you ask us, it’s perfect if you’re after a sophisticated, neat look.

It’s no secret that man buns are the ‘It’ new hairstyle for men, so we’re not at all surprised that the models at the Agi & Sam SS17 show were seen sporting curly, messy buns.

They had their voluminous hair styled into low, untidy buns that sat at the nape of their necks. Our favourite part of the look? The wacky yet wonderful floral bouquet glued to the side of their faces. How bloomin’ cool!

Ombre hair isn’t just reserved for girls, you know (just look at the model from the Casely-Hayford SS17 show for proof).

For a simple way to change up your look, opt for a gradual light-to-dark colour change. Note that, although this look may be super edgy, it does require a lot of colour maintenance, especially if you find that your hair grows rather quickly.

Got long hair and want to show it off? J.W. Anderson have got you covered! They sent models down the runway at London Collections Men SS17 with big, voluminous blowouts. For added movement, get some long layers chopped into your locks, and opt for an off-centre parting.

Bored of your ‘fro? Why not spruce it up with a sporty headband, like the models at the Tiger of Sweden SS17 show?

Opt for a headband with a pattern or some quirky text, and position it on your hairline for a stylish twist on the traditional afro ‘do.

Comb-overs have been on-trend for a while, but we’ve just seen their super short variation on the E. Tautz SS17 runway.

To get this look, ask your barber to crop your hair shorter on the sides, and slightly longer on the top, before styling it into a slick, deep side part.

Follow in the footsteps of the models at Christopher Raeburn, and embrace your natural curls. For this style, you’ll need to let your hair grow around 6-7 inches long, so that your curls can fall messily around your face.

Editor’s tip: Spritz some TONI&GUY Men Messy Salt Spray  to help give your curls a lived-in style. You’ll look like part of the London Collections Men SS17 show in no time!
