Cool Hair Cuts for Men

Men’s Hair Trends at COUPE Hair, Ascot

If you’re the type of chap who’s been wearing the same hairstyle for years it might be time for a change!  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 COUPE Hair in Sunninghill.

1. The Buzz Cut

Caeser Buzz Cut 2Anyone seen the latest Coen Brothers movie ‘Hail, Caesar!’?  While the movie’s characters might be taking the ‘Buzz Cut or Caesar Haircut’ to the extreme, we reckon you’ll soon be seeing a modern update to this classic cut.

The main feature of this hairstyle is to have your hair cut or shaved very close at the sides and to have your hair longer and brushed slightly forward on top.

Remember Justin Bieber’s early version which sparked a generation of young men wearing hair swept over their faces?  This is a cooler update on that style!

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 with Quiff

The Pompadour‘The Pompadour’ was a classic hairstyle of the mid 1700s and it’s making a comeback 300 years later!

The basic concept is to wear your hair swept upwards from the face and high over the forehead in a quiff or pompadour… then add a skin fade.

Ask your stylist to razor cut a #2 or #3 on the sides and to fade your hair so it gets slightly longer as it reaches your quiff.

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.  And if you’re not quite ready for a quiff, how about some messy texture on top instead?

3. The Disconnected Undercut

Disconnected UndercutWhat is a Disconnected Undercut?

The sides of the hair are cut extremely short or shaved – usually to one length all round – which creates a striking contrast between the sides and the top of the hair.

This differs to the fade, mentioned in the pompadour style above.  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.

If you are in doubt as to which style will suit you, talk to your stylist at COUPE Hair who can help you come up with the perfect hair style for you.

4. Facial Hair / Beards

Slick Back and Beard

Less of a hairstyle and more about facial hair,  we have to report that beards are likely to remain a firm favourite with gents for spring 2016.

Not quite ready for a full-on beard?  Try a little stubble instead?
