Grey strands have been dominating the hair scene lately and with more of Hollywood’s leading men taking the colour plunge, now’s a great time to experiment. So, if you’re after both a new colour and a timeless hairstyle to covet, try opting for a striking (yet handsomely subtle!) grey hue.

For maximum style impact, we suggest pairing it with a slicked-back quiff, as this dapper gent does. Yes, Mr. Grey will see you now. Credit: @jameswlsh

If you aren’t a fan of polished hairstyles, and fancy trying something with a cool, casual, and totally modern vibe, you need to take a note of this blogger’s textured top hairstyle. This look is defined by short sides and a long top, and is all about adding in plenty of natural-looking texture! Credit: @chezrust

Editor’s tip: To get the look, apply some Toni&Guy Men’s Mattifying Putty through your damp mane, making sure you really work it into the root area, before drying your strands with a hair dryer.

We, for one, are glad that the afro high top fade is still going strong as a top hair style among men. And with more variations of the style being debuted, it’s no surprise that it’s holding it’s ranking for black men in 2017. Modern versions of this ‘do now feature a sharp undercut, as well as a lot of length on top, making it a look with loads of contrast and a high-impact finish! Credit: @_yah_yah

Editor’s tip: Keep dry-prone hair conditioned with the TRESemmé Platinum Strength Stay Soft Leave-in Treatmentand lock in moisture with the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment. This will help keep your ‘fro at the top of its game.

When we predicted that comb-overs would be a big men’s hair trend for 2017, we meant it. And, judging from Gentleman Blogger Matthew Zorpas’ dapper mane, the look is the perfect balance of neat and statement-making. It’s classic and modern, easy to style, and works a treat with those with fine or unruly locks! Credit: @matthewzorpas

Editor’s tip: Pomade is the key styling product needed for this look, so if you want to learn how to use it like a pro, follow our essential guide, here!

If you’re lucky enough to already have a long mane, avoid fashioning it in a man bun this year and, instead, let it hang loose! This style is all about showing off your undone, tousled locks in all their glory, and making your strands the mane attraction (see what we did there?!). Credit: @tombusson

Editor’s tip: All you’ll need to do to get this fuss-free look, is to use the Toni&Guy Mens Messy Salt Spray and then pair your 2017-ready ‘do with a stylish hat to boot.

When Zayn Malik made the brave decision to showcase his dapper ’90s-esque wet-look curtains on the red carpet, we sensed a revival in the making. And seeing as other classic trends are already making their mark in 2017, we reckon this throwback haircut is a wild card to keep on your radar – we’ll be saving this one for later… Credit: @nachofernandez_26
