Summer is rolling around and it’s almost obligatory to start planning meet-ups and out-of-town trips with family and friends. It’s also the time for people to start playing around with the thought of adopting a whole new look, partly because of all the social gatherings and also partly due to the intense heat we deal with every day. The most common thing to change in one’s appearance is the hair; since you’re here, we can only assume that you’ve started scouring through celebrity photos and highend beauty collection to try.
If you’re looking for the best hairstyles for men this 2017, here are a few suggestions to get you ready for summer.
Long Beach Waves
Who says only women can rock the beach waves? Even if you’re nowhere near the beach you can achieve this look with sea salt sprays available in the market for some added volume and body.
Low Fade with Volume on Top
Grew out your hair and not ready to say goodbye? We understand it can be hard to just cut the fruits of your effort and patience away. Sadly, the weather does not. Long hair is not advisable during the summer as the volume makes it too hot to bear in this heat. Fret not as you can compromise with a low fade on the sides while keeping the volume you want on top.
High Fade with Textured Top
A higher fade will keep most of your head cool. You will literally feel the wind on the back of your neck. Additionally, it will make you look cool as this cut is quite trendy these days.
It’s classic, easy to maintain, and will keep you cool without subjecting your scalp to direct sunlight. Buzz cuts are also perfect for those with receding hairlines. If you’re comfortable with your head shape (some people have bumps on their heads they’d rather don’t show), there’s no reason for you not to head on the barber’s shop and get it done. For those not so confident with their head shape, buzz cuts do vary in length and you can opt to have just a little bit more hair for more coverage.
Low Taper Fade
As with most of the haircuts in this list, this cut prevents the heat from being trapped in the back of your head but doesn’t sacrifice volume at the top. Best suits those with wavy hair.
Taper with Classic Slick Back
Combining taper with the rest of the hair slicked back lets you have a clean-cut look without having to go too short.
Medium Fade with Messy Pompadour
The great thing about a fade cut is that it shows off the jawline or emphasizes the beard. Top it off with a loose pompadour to complete the look.
Taper Fade Faux Hawk
The faux hawk, or fohawk, is surprisingly quite versatile nowadays. Consider your features when deciding what length and volume the top should be.
Hard Part and Comb Over
While spikes look edgy, a comb over looks more classy, even if you’re just lounging around by the shore.
Not a huge fan of your forehead? Opt for cuts with long fringes or bangs instead to emphasize your eyes.
Fades have been around for a while now and show no signs of slowing down as one of the most popular cuts. It’s also the perfect way to combat the summer heat. However we did manage to throw in other styles in the mix in case you’re not a huge fan.
As always, choose a style that suits your face shape, but don’t be afraid to experiment. In fact you may also want to consider dyeing your hair in addition to getting a cut. You never know which one is the look for you until you try it!
