A movie star haircut can make you feel four inches taller, and a poor haircut can ruin your day. If you’re searching for a new haircut or simply trying to keep up with the latest men’s styles, we’ll take a look at what’s trendy for 2018.
Creativity has become the cornerstone of men’s haircuts. Just as tattoos have become infinitely more popular over the past decade, adding artwork to one’s hair seems to be following suit. Thankfully, if a design winds up being a catastrophe, they’re not permanent like tattoos. The possibilities are endless, especially when stars, surgical lines, abstract art, and logos are all fair game. In contrast to the safer and cleaner styles, neckline and shaved head designs are edgy.
As the name implies, textured hair has feeling and volume. This adds a swagger to your overall appearance, so it’s no wonder the style has gained momentum recently. Alongside tapered haircuts, textured hair is becoming fairly mainstream. In fact, the two styles combine for a striking look.
While we can’t fast forward to December 2018, tapered hair seems to be a snowball rolling down a hill. Eye-catching though not quite dramatic, the gradual style provides the feeling of a fresh haircut without going over the top. Conveniently, you don’t have to visit a specialist to rock the tapered style as would be encouraged with neckline and shaved head designs.
Say what you will about extremely voluminous pompadour haircuts, but when done correctly this style epitomizes class. The pompadour fits the modern gentleman who attends events such as weddings and business dinners. The style offers nothing too flashy, crazy, or extravagant.
Somehow Justin Timberlake manages to pull off the pompadour in a way that’s signature rather than cliché. Certainly, there’s an element of maturity about it, which David Beckham also takes full advantage of.
