Men’s Hair 2018: What’s Hot and What’s Not

Now that spring has sprung, it’s time to get a fresh trim, ready for the sunny summer days that lie ahead! In 2017, we saw the growth of the man bun, the manbre and a plethora of other wild looks; we’d love to know which was your favourite!

Setting the past aside, we’re now looking to the year ahead to see what the hottest trends of this year are going to bring and we can’t wait!

The Textured Crop

This style is an effortlessly easy look to achieve at home and works for all hair types. No matter how wavy or straight your hair, the textured crop is a style for everyone, paired with a close fad toward the neckline for a fresh look. Wear it messy with a glaze or product to add volume, and you’ll be good to go in minutes.

Top tip: In terms of colour, bold blondes are certainly on the agenda to be paired with a crop!

The Side Part Taper

A side parting has always been a classic look and can work for a range of hair lengths. Keeping a little length in the top adds volume and gives you the freedom to add your own twist to your style or simply smooth it over for a confident and smart look. Once you’ve mastered the art of styling your side part, this look will take minutes and have you looking like you’re ready to take on anything.

Say goodbye to man buns as this year it’s all about letting your locks run free.
