Get in the hipster mode!
Yup, the hipster look isn’t going to fade into oblivion anytime soon. Last couple of years you could see the hipster hairstyles everywhere, from vintage record stores to cozy retro bars, and your local coffee shop. This trend is set to continue in 2017. And even though there are a wide variety of different takes on the hipster hairstyle, you won’t go wrong with the highlighted pompadour, high cut V fade, or the textured high and tight top. Some of the hairstyle lookbooks for 2017 are filled from cover to cover with these awesome styles.
Put the bun in the oven!
2017 is perfect for the man bun look. Even a few Hollywood stars are rocking ‘The Bun’. Colin Farrell, Orlando Bloom, and Leonardo DiCaprio are just some of the megastars that have been spotted boasting this trendy hairstyle. Just make sure that no balding spots are revealed when you make the bun, because this is one of the style’s potential negative side-effects.
Buzzcut is back in action!
Many female celebrities are known to have embraced the buzzcut in the last few years, but this age-old hairstyle is still great for men, too. Some have called the trendy cut ‘lazy’, but this description couldn’t be farther from the truth. Since we have entered an age of fast food and quick fixes, this cool hairstyle captures this current zeitgeist to the max.
Slicked back is the ultimate vogue!
When was the last time your hairdresser recommended the slicked back style to you? Well, 2017 might just be the year, because this hairstyle will be at the top of its game next year. The bearded look won’t fade at least before 2018, too, making the slicked back look a popular choice, as it goes perfectly with a nice, rough, medium cut or full-length beard. This trendy bad boy style goes perfectly paired with a stylish tuxedo, or a modern take on the classic dinner jacket.
But what’s out?
Some hairstyles have been kicked out of the trendsetters’ party, and won’t make a comeback anytime soon. One of these styles lurking in the murky waters of forgotten haircuts is the bowl cut. It’s just too simple and childish to really be displayed on the posters you see plastered on modern hair-styling studio’s walls. Bowl cut has an evil twin brother called curtains. Thanks to Kurt Cobain, this style was popular in the 1990s but hasn’t really made an impression on the popular culture ever since. If you forget about these hairstyles all together, you will be on the safer side of men’s hair universe.
