Men's Hair Trends 2015

It’s that time of year again:  what are the men’s hair trends 2015 going to be? We’ve looked at the latest runways and street style from the world’s most fashionable cities, these are our predictions for the top new hairstyles for men in 2015. Remember guys: trends for men evolve at a pace that you can keep up with. Therefore, the barbering trend of 2014 will continue and new looks will be variations of current styles.

Side Parting

We’ve talked about the side parting before but it will continue to dominate in 2015. To add a side parting is to get the effect of an undercut without shaving, and this hipster, vintage, or preppy hairstyle can be styled matte, shiny, messy, wavy, or up high.

For something different, try parting hair on the opposite side. One may be noticeably better, depending on if you have a ‘good side.’ Hair can be stubborn when it comes to change so use a little extra product while hair is trained to lie flat in a different direction than usual.

Messy, Tousled Styles

In reaction to the every hair in place slick trend, loose, messy styles are growing in popularity. They can be worn with same side parting or undercut you’re already wearing, just let the finished product have some texture and wildness. This works for every hair type and is a good way to add volume to fine or thin hair.

The Mop

Styles are all about reacting to what came before (see skinny jeans after years of baggy ones). The opposite of the slick look is hair worn loose and down in fringe. This isn’t school boy Justin Bieber (for the record, that style has never been recommended by us) but vintage inspired style that can be styled messy for that rocker cool look.  Think Paolo Nutini!

It is a perfect style for curly or wavy hair. For fine hair, try adding some salt spray for hold and texture. This is a hairstyle rather than a specific cut so wear hair down some days, with a side part on others.

Long Hair

While longer hair isn’t for everyone, wearing hair long is becoming more common. The man bun has a lot to do with this, replacing the questionable ponytails of the past. Long hair doesn’t have to be really long, and of course won’t be when you first start growing it out. Often, anything chin length and longer can be cool.  However, be sure to keep going for trims, though you won’t need them as frequently as with short hair. Unkempt hair looks lazy and unintentional compared to groomed and cared for long hair.
When hair is even longer, conditioning is a must. Add it to your shower routine early on while growing hair long to make sure locks are as strong as healthy as can be.
