When it comes to looking your best, making sure your hair is on point is a key part of it. The most important thing that guys need to consider is finding the style that works best for you, which means experimenting and trying out different styles until you find the right one. Too often guys just end up sticking with the same style they’ve always known and been comfortable with, but all they were doing was holding themselves back from unlocking their own potential.
Here are a few popular hairstyles from this year that may be the missing piece that you need to go from looking good, to looking great!
Brushed Up Pompadour
For men who don’t want to cut off too much hair but still want to look professional, the brushed up pompadour is a good option. The sides and back are cut shorter, while the top is left long enough to be styled skyward with gel or pomade.
A buzz cut may not be appropriate for all occasions, but some men like to keep their hair rather short. The Caesar is a good alternative, because it leaves enough length on top for a slight spike. If you’re looking for low maintenance, this is probably your best bet, since the cut looks good even without using any product.
The Side Part
The side part is a trend that many of the younger generation are embracing, though it was lost for several years. The hair on top can be grown a little longer, giving more body and volume to your hair that you sweep over from the part. Keeping the sides and back of your hair just a little shorter is the key to really emphasizing the side part.
When you really want to look polished but also want the freedom to switch things up, go for the slicked back style. You can keep it combed back for work, and then tussle the top for a messier look for a night out.
This style was hot last year, and 2015 looks to be another year of the undercut. Men of all ages can pull of this cool style, and many barbers are coming up with interesting fades to create variations that will set you apart.
