Here's a Look At This Year's Most Requested Men's Haircuts
We can all agree that men did a fantastic job with their choice of hairstyles in 2018. For the most part, we stuck to tried-and-tested cuts—familiar reliables that were never not stylish. Here are a couple of the more noteworthy hair trends of the past year:
The Faded Buzzcut
There’s nothing simpler than a buzzcut—your standard semikal. Over the past few years, guys have been asking for a little more fade down the sides and back, likely inspired by pro-ballers. It’s the most comfortable, hassle-free hairstyle out there, not to mention easy to obtain and maintain.
The High and Tight
Some of the most popular hairstyles of 2018 have been on the shorter side—a sign that we are a decade departed from the unkempt emo bangs of 2008. The high and tight fits the bill. Think of it as a crew cut, but with a little more finesse.
Anything With a Fade, Really
More guys have been asking for faded haircuts(, likely) because it’s an easy way to look stylish and edgy, but still presentable. There’s just something about an elegant downwards taper that makes a guy look more roguishly appealing. Of course, some hairstyles work better with faded sides than others, and the general rule is to keep it short.
The French Crop
If there’s one relatively new men’s hairstyle that started rolling out in 2018, it’s the French crop: short on the sides and back, long on top, and with bangs that are either fringey or cut straight.
The Modern Pompadour
Why yes the pompadour is still very popular. While you’re free to go for the whole high-volume, pomade-heavy look, we recommend styling it with a little more subtlety.
Long on top and really, really short everywhere else. Most men have opted for a slight taper, but there are still a lot who like this more aggressive look.
This one never really goes out of style. Simple and neat, the side-part fits in as well today as it did in the ‘60s and ‘70s. It’s a grown-up men’s hairstyle we can recommend whenever.
Regardless of how trends come and go, there’s one hair move that will never, ever be out of style: hygiene. Clean and dandruff-free hair is always a good choice.
