Gents’ Hair Trends

Men’s Hair Ideas & Trends at Poole Hair Salon

Are you thinking of trying out a brand new look for spring?  Have you been sporting the same hairstyle for years?  We take a look at the top five fashion-forward hairstyles for men to inspire you when it’s time for your next hair cut at our Poole hair salon.

1. The Buzz Cut

Have your hair cut or shaved very short at the sides with your hair swept forward on top for an on-trend men’s hairstyle for 2016.

Forget the Justin Bieber version that prompted a generation of young men to wear their hair swept over their faces and into their eyes.  This is a cool update on that look!

The short length makes it easy to maintain and this style looks great when you work in a little texture for a messy, understated look.


2. The Skin Fade

Ask your barber to give you a #2 or #3 on the sides and to fade your hair from there upwards so it gets slightly longer as it reaches the top.

Then it’s time to decide what to do on top… Wear it in a quiff, a really high ‘pompadour’ or simply cut into a texturised, slightly messy spiked style.

Anything longer than shaved sides and you won’t get this look. There should still be some length on top, but it’s up to you as to how high you wear your quiff.


3. The Disconnected Undercut

What is a Disconnected Undercut and how does it differ from a Fade?

The clue is in the name.  The sides of the hair are either cut extremely short or shaved – usually to one length all round – which creates a noticeable contrast or disconnect between the sides and the top of the hair.

With the fade, the hair graduates from short up to longer so there is less contrast between the length on the top of the hair and the sides.


4. Beards

OK so this is less of a hairstyle and more about facial hair but we have to report that beards will remain a firm favourite with gents during 2016.

If you fancy a change, hide that razor and start growing your beard now.  Keep it looking neat and tidy with regular visits to Bliss Hair for a beard trim!

Looking for a cool hairstyle to match your beardy look?  Wear your hair a little longer, with a side parting and slick it back with some pomade.


5. Curly Hair For Gents

It’s time to embrace your curls and make the most of your hairstyle.

We can create a number of masculine hairstyles for curly hair with layering or by adding a skin fade or undercut look.

When it comes to styling curly hair, our barbers will know exactly the right hair products and can give you some great styling tips to keep your style looking fresh.
