1. The “Caesar” Buzz Cut
With the release of the latest Cohen Brothers film ‘Hail Caesar’ bringing this classic cut back to the big screens, we expect to see a huge resurgence of this ultra-cool, edgy style in 2016.
The Caesar haircut has always been a popular buzz cut among fashion-forward guys for good reason. The short length of the style makes it easy to maintain, and looks great when you work in a little texture for a messy, understated look. It will stay in place all day, with little to no maintenance required.
2. The Pompadour Skin Fade
The Pompadour, historically a women’s hair style coined by Madame de Pompadour, mistress of King Louis XV in the 18th century, was given a manly twist by Elvis Presley in the 1950’s…and it’s a hair style that has been loved by hipsters the world over ever since.
This pompadour with a skin fade is a newer take on the classic style for 2016, and it’s undoubtedly dapper. You can make the pompadour more or less dramatic depending on your style, and both work for different situations. If you like the ultra-short look, ask your Stylist to use a #2 or #3 on the sides and fade from there. Anything longer won’t give you this look. There should still be some length on top, but the amount is up to you.
3. The Disconnected Undercut
They’re super cool, and can give you a variety of different looks with one cut. You can slick your hair back, comb it over and hold it with a pomade, or just let it all hang loose and natural. You can get an undercut haircut at a variety of lengths too. Keep your hair short, or grow it out to a medium length or even longer if you want to go for a really disconnected undercut haircut style.
Disconnected undercuts are the most popular variation of the classic undercut hairstyle and are set to be huge for 2016. So, what makes this different than any other undercut?! Well, it’s disconnected! Meaning the sides of the hair are short and more importantly all one size, this creates a noticeable contrast between the sides of the hair and the top.
4. The Slick Back & Beard Combo
In 2016, we forecast a high-shine look taking center stage, which means lots of pomade. Like a side part, slicked hair is a versatile technique that can be paired with other styles. It’s appropriate for both short and long hair, but curly-haired fellows may not be able to achieve the look.
And, while the hipster beard may have gone (somewhat) out of style, we expect to see lots of facial hair in 2016. Whether you’re capable of growing only a bit of stubble or a full beard, you’ll find endless ways to incorporate your facial hair into your hairstyles. It’s not about how much you can grow – it’s about synchronizing your head hair and facial hair to add another dimension to your hairstyle.
5. Short, Styled Curls
Curly-headed gents haven’t always gotten their fair share of the hair limelight. However, that’s been gradually changing, and we expect to see quite a few curly men’s hairstyles in 2016 – think Olly from Years and Years.
There’s a variety of ways to style your curls, from subtle, gentle curls to curly-fry locks. You can pair your curls with an undercut or a skin fade for a look that will stand out from the rest for its uniqueness. If you have curly hair, get your hands on some high quality styling products and get ready for the new year. Whether you go short and defined or long and loose, you’ll be part of a new wave of men’s hairstyles for 2016.
