Trending hair for men

Thursday, 21 February 2013

David Gilson shares what’s hot in the world of men’s hair trends. From recreating the good old quiff to rocking your natural curls, here is what he is loving.

I have just returned from London and found that men’s hair is actually this year’s main fashion focus! The look is very 1950s with an exaggerated Elvis quiff and for those with curly hair it’s long and naturally curly on top and short on the sides.

We are also seeing very strong undercuts for men and exaggerated hairstyles.

    I like the Elvis quiff and shorter sides (James Dean.. mmm) But please not the really long on top, combed back and shortly shaved sides style, like the top middle photo… :(

    I’m not convinced that these styles will look as great on an ordinary man (no super models)

    I’m feeling everything except the bottom right corner. It’s a bit too pouffy for my liking.
