Top 5 Hipster Hairstyles for Gents

Hair Trends for Men in 2016 from Shelley’s Hair Salon in Bridgend

Thinking of trying out a brand new look to kick off Spring 2016 in style? The team at Shelley Lane Salon in Bridgend take a look at the top 5 hairstyles for Men in 2016. Why not let one of these fashion-forward looks inspire you!

1. The “Caesar” Buzz Cut

Caeser Buzz Cut 2With the release of the latest Coen Brothers movie ‘Hail, Caesar!’ bringing this classic cut back to the big screens, we expect to see a huge resurgence of this ultra-cool, edgy style in 2016.

The ‘Caesar Haircut’ has always been a popular buzz cut among fashion-forward guys for good reason. The short length of the style makes it easy to maintain, and looks great when you work in a little texture for a messy, understated look. It will stay in place all day, with little to no maintenance required.


2. The Pompadour Skin Fade

The PompadourThis pompadour with a skin fade is a newer take on the classic style for 2016, and it’s undoubtedly dapper. You can make the pompadour more or less dramatic depending on your style, and both work for different situations.

If you like the ultra-short look, ask your Stylist at our salon in Bridgend to use a #2 or #3 on the sides and fade from there. Anything longer won’t give you this look. There should still be some length on top, but the amount is up to you.


3. The Disconnected Undercut

Disconnected UndercutDisconnected undercuts are the most popular variation of the classic undercut hairstyle and are set to be huge for 2016. So, what makes this different than any other undercut?!

Well, it’s disconnected! Meaning the sides of the hair are short and more importantly all one size, this creates a noticeable contrast between the sides of the hair and the top.



4. Curls, Curls, Curls!

Mens Hair BoxWhether you go short and defined or long and loose, you’ll be part of a new wave of men’s hairstyles for 2016. There’s a variety of ways to style your curls, from subtle, gentle curls to curly-fry locks.

You can pair your curls with an undercut or a skin fade for a look that will stand out from the rest for its uniqueness. If you have curly hair, get your hands on some high quality styling products and get ready for the new season.


5. The Slick Back & Beard Combo

Slick Back and BeardWe forecast a high-shine look taking centre stage in 2016 – which means lots of pomade! Like a side part, slicked hair is a versatile technique that can be paired with other styles. It’s appropriate for both short and long hair, but curly-haired fellows may not be able to achieve the look.

And, while the hipster beard may have gone (somewhat) out of style, we expect to see lots of facial hair in 2016. Whether you’re capable of growing only a bit of stubble or a full beard, you’ll find endless ways to incorporate your facial hair into your hairstyles.
