Slick back hair

For this catwalk look, it’s all about creating a smooth, sleek hairstyle, and drawing inspiration from retro ‘dos rocked of the ’50s and ’60s.

Editor’s tip: Now, don’t be threatened by it’s complicated appearance, because all you need to achieve this suave look is the VO5 Wet Look Styling Gel and a comb, and to look at the Christopher Raeburn show for inspiration!

Short crop

If you’re after a super short and hassle-free hairstyle to rock next season, it really doesn’t get any better than a tightly cropped ‘do.

Not only are short crops ideal for all hair types (and an absolute breeze to style in the mornings), but they are also set to be one of the hottest styles of the year – so get chopping!

The middle-parting

For many seasons now, we’ve seen side partings become a firm favourite within men’s hair styling. But after this season’s round of shows at London Fashion Week Men’s 2017, that’s all about to change!

And the one leading the revolution? J.W. Anderson, of course, whose subtle and easy-to-wear take on the middle parting, is sure to shake things up on the style scene.

Tousled texture

Here at All Things Hair, we love celebrating all hair textures and types, which is why we were really excited to see the tousled textures being embraced at LFWM this season! So, whether you have wavy, curly, or coily hair, now is the time to let your mane shine.

Editor’s tip: Try using some of the TONI&GUY Men’s Messy Salt Spray to create a relaxed, lived-in look, or use a little of the Lynx Natural Look Flexible Control Cream with a hair sponge, for defining afro textures.

Shoulder-length hair

We can’t help but notice that more and more guys are growing their hair long, but the big question is: what is the optimum length? Well, it seems that LFWM has finally answered that question and deemed shoulder-length tresses the length du jour.

So, if you want to remain ahead of the fashion pack, keep your mane to a couple of inches before or below your shoulders. And for an even more stylish twist, try rocking your natural strands in dreadlocks, like the models at the Fashion East show!

Modern bowl cut

Okay, before you balk at this hairstyle: hear us out. This mane trend is a little cooler than the disastrous haircuts of your yester years, because it has been given a much needed update! The secret? Avoiding blunt, straight cuts, and instead asking your barber to cut in soft, subtle layers.

Psst… fellas with naturally wavy or curly manes, this one is perfect for you!

Man bun

Whether you’re a lover or hater of the man bun, there is no denying that it remains a hair favourite at LFWM, and the year to come. But instead of making a haphazard mess of things, this autumn is all about creating a smooth and sleek look in the front, and keeping your bro bun firmly in the middle of your head.

Clean, refined, and on-trend – what more could you ask for?

Quiff

This quiff from the London Fashion Week Men’s AW17 shows draws inspiration from Spanish bull fighters – so think chic and sleek, yet with loads of added volume!

So, to give your hair a little extra oomph, simply lift it at the roots and use your blow dryer to boost that volume.
