Rounding up the latest looks for the season ahead with the experts at Barber & Co.
Facebook/Union of BarbersThe fauxhawk, undercut, pompadour and slicked-back all have one thing in common: they were each the most popular haircut of their respective era. Who can forget Will Smith’s iconic '90s flat-top fade or the classic James Dean? With the fresh energy of spring just around the corner, its the perfect time to investigate the current trends in men’s hairstyles, as showcased by our friends at Barber & Co.
Here are three of the latest looks—and how to achieve them with ease...
Instagram/imezramillerThe Cut: The short Caesar is a punky, pretty-boy cut with a twist. Using scissors, a barber will add texture to this super-short style. Subtle styling is required here for any gentleman on-the-go.
The Product: Texture Paste, $28
The Tip: Work a small amount of Texture Paste between your palms and apply evenly into dry hair to create this upgraded boy-next-door look. Remember that a lot of product goes a long way on shorter hair.
Instagram/miloanthonyventimigliaThe Cut: Don’t be shy about embracing longer hair this year! This style requires a layered, mid-length cut that will give you an effortless look.
The Product: Matte Pomade, $28
The Tip: Channel this cut with Matte Pomade, formulated to add shape and body while creating an effortless look. Apply a small amount into damp hair and style until you’re satisfied with the result.
3. Classic soft-part
Instagram/tomhardyThe Cut: The side part has been a massive trend for years, but the 2018 version showcases a delicate parting that has a softer look and feel. The sides can are kept longer with scissors, or even a low fade. Ask your barber what will work best for your shape.
The Product: Classic Pomade, $28
The Tip: Apply a small amount of Classic Pomade to dry or damp hair for a medium hold. This versatile formula will hold a part in place throughout the busy day.
