New Haircut Trends For Men

1. Fringe Cuts

Make 2018 the year of the fringe! A fringe really just means that your hair is longer on top to cover your forehead. We love this cut because it’s a cool ’70s style that looks awesome on guys with straight, and even curly hair. Curly bangs are hot! Trust us. Ask your barber for the best cut, based on your face shape. In general, your hair will need to be long enough to cover your forehead when brushed forwards.

2. Extra Long Hair

Super long hair is a classic look for guys that can’t bear chopping if off. It’s an edgy look, without having to do all that much! You just need to let your hair grow long. If you want to wear your hair super long like this, make sure you take care of it by getting regular trims and using the right wash and care system, like Dove Men+Care Fresh & Clean Fortifying 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner. Going for the 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner is a good bet because long hair can take a beating. The conditioner helps to keep your moisturized, strong and shiny.

3. The Long Pomp

If you like the long hair look but, maybe, not quite that long, try out the long pomp instead. The pompadour is a cool style from the ’50s that we still love today. The extra length helps to give you even more height to your classic pomp. Use Bed Head For Men By TIGI Matte Separation Workable Wax to mold and style your pompadour. The matte texture makes your vintage style look much more modern.

4. Colored Hair

Why not try hair dye this year? You don’t have to go totally wild and wear a bright shade, but if you want a new hue, go for it! We like this style with a dark, cool gray tone. You could also do something fun like a deep emerald green or a navy shade. Keeping your hair a dark tone all over makes your new color more subtle and refined.

5. Bald Undercut

We know you’re all about the undercut already. But, what do you think about the bald undercut new haircut this year? The bald undercut is where your undercut is shaved all the way down to the skin. This instantly creates a seriously high contrast look. Wear it with that long pomp or with an edgy bowl cut.

6. Bald Fade

If a bald undercut is a little too much look for you try a bald fade instead. It gives that same cool high contrast look, without the harsh line. The bald fade just fades down to your skin. The great thing about fade haircuts is that you can match it up with nearly any other haircut you like! If you want to go short all around, try it. If you want a mohawk, it will work too.

7. Natural Textures

We’re excited that in 2017 new haircut looks are a lot more inclusive of natural hair textures. If you have curly hair, keep it long enough to show! Seriously, nothing is better than well kept, defined curls. If your hair is on the short side, you can still show off your curls. Just use Bed Head By TIGI On The Rebound Curl Recall Cream to help your curls stay soft and defined.
