One subject that doesn’t get a lot of attention is men’s hairstyles. Of course, once upon a time, men had just a handful of styles to pick from. Now men are paying a lot more attention to their looks, so it’s important to make sure that their hair looks just as good as the rest of them. Here are some tips for getting a great hairstyle this year.
Just like with women’s hairstyles, men need to pay attention to their hair type when choosing a cut. Otherwise, you could find your hair looking unexpectedly flat, or developing cowlicks and curls where you least want them to be. A style that looks great on a magazine model won’t necessarily work for you, unless you have the same hair type. Your stylist can help you choose the style that will work best for the kind of hair you have.
Length options for men used to be short and shorter. Modern styles offer a better range of options for men’s hairstyles, while still looking respectable for work or school. Consider a tousled, layered look if you like your hair at a medium length. Working a little gel or other product into your hair can make it look a little windblown without being messy. Bangs pushed forward over the forehead can be seen on many models and celebrities.
Long hair is also stylish now, although in this case, long means little more than shoulder length. Remember that longer hair requires more upkeep to look its best. Neglect could cause your hair to look dirty when it’s not, or unkempt.
If you prefer your hair shorter, but don’t want to look staid or boring, try a cut that’s a little spiky, or go for a slick retro option. Men’s hairstyles from the 30s and 40s have been making a comeback, and give you a chance to sport a classic look that’s a little different.
