The summer season is a perfect time to try out a new laid back and casual style. When it comes to hairstyles for men, the trend toward classic clean-cut with the option for more stylistic variations is right on target. Hair makes a statement, and for men who want to update a look, the styles are there.
Let’s be honest. Unless you work from home or in a very casual environment, well-groomed hair is probably a must for your employer’s culture. But you don’t have to sacrifice style for conformity in a professional look. Here’s why:
Start With Classic Barbering
The undercut, one of the top men’s hairstyle trends for 2014, is still popular. This is a great looking, comfortable-to-wear cut that is versatile enough to support some stylistic trends. It features sharp, clean lines – close-cropped or shaved back and sides with longer hair on top – that look good on almost everyone. If you’re looking for a haircut that can be styled to make a statement – this is the one!
Find YOUR Individual Look
Whether you’re seeking a classic clean-cut look or want to try something a bit more edgy, it can work for you. The undercut is versatile enough to accommodate many stylistic variations. Here are a few of the traditional fringe styles:
- Style slick, straight back or to one side.
- Add a side part – vintage Mad Men style – or take it to the next level with an angular cut.
- Combine with a comb over fringe that works on all hair types.
- Keep short, crisp sides and with fringe thick and long for a modern pompadour.
- Exaggerate your fringe for a truly unique style with a quiff – a combination of 1950’s style pompadour, flat top and bit of Mohawk.
