The Textured Top Hairstyle:

The textured top hairstyle is a fresh look that works for a wide range of hair types. The most popular hair types for this style tend to be coarse hair with plenty of body, fine hair but plenty of it and natural curls. This style is better suited to men who already have quite textured locks.

In terms of the cut, the key with this hairstyle is to have the top looking effortless as the top will often style itself with little to no work. The length on top should be even, with no real length on the fringe. Partner the textured top style with a high fade, a short back and side or even a severe undercut. Speak with your Barber in terms of the cut, and don’t be afraid to show them photos for inspiration.

The Buzzcut:

This became increasing popular hairstyle is easy for any man to manage with virtually no grooming necessary! However, this style isn’t for everyone, the buzz cut tends to work better with men who have a rather angular face.
Men with wide set jaw lines – seem to carry this classic, minimal style really well.

Have a good chat with your barber before you commit, they should be able to offer you options on the optimum length that will suit you best. Another key thing to remember about this cut is with it being so short – the edges and finishing touches are probably more important here than ever before here.

Sweep & High Fade Haircut:

Fairly similar to the textured top but with a lot more length. The high ‘short back and sides’ are back with an absolute vengeance after Tommy Shelby and his brothers made every man want to be them and every woman want to be with them.

This sleek style is a playful mixture of the longer – ‘heart throb, I just run my hands through my hair’ look paired with the defining contrast of a high fade. Depending on your hair type this style can be low maintenance. The most idealistic hair would be medium thickness and either straight or wavy as this type of hair tends to have a natural tendency to stay in place due to its weight. However, if your hair is curly or a little fine then this style is still possible for you with the right cut and the right products.

The Pomp Hairstyle:

Almost a happy medium between the sweep back top and a textured quiff. This contemporary favourite has become pretty timeless. The most popular cut for a Pompadour hair cut this year seems to be again with a fade – yes, those iconic short back and sides are back for more.
However, you can even work this style with a slightly longer textured top and even a medium length style with no fade at all – this is probably one of the most versatile hair trends this year that works with a range of styles and lengths.

When styling this look you want to sweep your hair in the natural direction that it tends to want to fall, that way you’ll achieve more of an effortless shape. Use a hair dryer to aid the hair to fall right and set with a good hairspray or a wax – depending on whether you want effortless or super sleek. Work the product in bit by bit to avoid over doing it.
