We just bid goodbye to 2016 and we’re in the first quarter of 2017. It’s the New Year and it’s also time to upgrade everything, including your look. What best way to start the new you but by changing your haircut? Not sure what style will get you all looking trendy? Don’t worry as we got you covered. Most of the styles this 2017 will be a continuation of the trend of the previous year, so expect to see more faded styles and pompadours.
1. High Fade Shaved Line
Fade haircuts are some of the trendiest haircuts for men because they are stylish, but versatile at the same time. The hair on the side and back gradually fades out, but the top can be any length that you prefer. One of the types of fade haircut is the high fade shaved line. High fade haircuts are thicker about a couple of inch below the top part before the fade begins. If you want to grab the attention of people, a cool way to do this is to add a shave line making you look like a Rockstar!
2. Low Fade with Long Fringe
This has the perfect balance of short and long hair as it is faded on the side and back, but it is long on the fringe part. You can have the fringe any length as you want as long as it’s longer than usual fades. Keep the fringe sleek so you will still look fantastic even in your professional suit. You can leave it a bit messy if you want to look more casual. The low fade haircut starts to fade at the part that is lower than the high fade. This would look good on a clean-shaven face or trimmed beard, as the fringe is already long.
3. Skin Fade with Blunt Cut Fringe
A classic look that is also typically seen on those in the military is this haircut. Even if you are not in the service, you can still try this style, especially if you want to look stronger and more powerful. This masculine looking haircut has high fade that is almost bald at the bottom. The top part is cut blunt on the fringe, although you can also style it up when you want to by pulling it up and creating a very short textured fringe or spikes. This one will work with formal and casual wear. Plus, it’s also low maintenance.
4. Skin Fade with Loose Pompadour
Like the other skin fade hairstyles, the hair on the back and side of this haircut fades and blends with the skin starting from below the top of the hair. The top part has the pompadour style, but unlike the classic sleek, this has looser strands. This gives it a modern take to the pompadour haircut. The top can be as loose as you want it. This has the flexibility to be worn at the office and after work when partying or having a night out with friends. The greasy look that was also a signature of the pompadour is no longer a must for this modern twist as you can use wax and other styling products to keep the hair up.
5. Buzz Cut and Shape Up
This is somewhat similar to the Skin Fade with Blunt Cut Fringe haircut. However, this haircut has a shape on the fringe. It is also skin fade on the side and back part and may have the same fade on top, giving it a clean look. If you don’t want a blunt look in front, this is your option. It adds style and softens the look a little bit with the shape. This is also perfect for those who prefer hairstyles that are easy to maintain. You won’t have to do anything with this style as it’s very short. Men who are active and always on the go would love this.
6. Short Textured Haircut
This is one of the haircuts for men that never go out of style. It’s very short and it can be easily styled. Plus, it’s flexible as it can match any outfit, whether it’s a formal attire, casual clothes, or sportswear. It’s a skin fade style that has short fringe on top set to give that textured look. A quick application of your favorite hairstyling product and a few strokes on the top part with your hands are all it takes to achieve this look once you got this haircut.
7. Long Messy with Low Fade
8. Pushed Back Pompadour
This is another take on the skin fade with pompadour style. Instead of a skin fade, this has a high fade style on the side and back. The top is also sleek, but instead of the classic pompadour style that has volume on top and almost going to the center, the top hair is pulled back on this haircut. It’s also easier to set compare to the classic pompadour as it only requires the application of hairstyling product on top and brushing it up going back. It’s clean and fashion forward at the same time.
9. Spiky Modern Undercut
Undercut hairstyles for men had been around since the 1920’s. The side and back on this style are buzzed really short, while keeping the top long. The hair on top is typically parted at the center and in the more recent years, the side swept fringe became a trend. A modern twist on this classic hairstyle this 2017 is the spiky modern undercut. Instead of the bangs being parted on the center or side swept, it’s set to be textured and stand up giving it that spiky appearance.
10. Man Bun and Beard
If you want to keep your long hair, you can style it by doing the man bun. You don’t have to shave your beard as you can have it trimmed to work with your bun. This look is sexy and even if your hair is long or wavy, it will still look sleek, hot, and stylish at the same time. You can get away wearing it in a formal attire like the man on the image above. It will also work on other outfits. What’s good about it is that you can just remove the bun and wear your hair down at times you feel like doing so.
