The season synonymous with all things spring cleaning is upon us. This means it’s the perfect time to look into thoroughly cleaning up and getting organized and this applies to pretty much every area of our lives. For the men, I am sure you are thinking about trimming that mane that has helped keep you insulated during the cold season. What better way to start off the spring season than with a fresh, clean cut? It’s not just women who appreciate a great cut, men can also benefit from a well-executed makeover. Anyone who has ever gotten that fresh haircut knows that feeling of pure joy when the hair stylists reveal the new you. Here are a few ideas on haircuts for men to help you figure out the perfect warm weather hairdo.
The Crew Cut
This traditional haircut has been around for decades. It is popular among countless celebrities such as Usher, Justin Timberlake and Brad Pitt. The crew cut is low maintenance, suits most face shapes and hair types and can help to give your face more definition. It will give you a more athletic/masculine look. It is ideal for a man who wants a haircut that’s just enough to put a bit of product in but without too much maintenance.
The High Fade With Twist Curls
This look is very popular now especially among athletes and is suitable for those with coarse, curly 4C hair. The hair fading on the sides, paired with the twist curls on top gives this cut a clean appearance while adding some personality to the look.
The Skin Fade
Also known as the bald fade, this haircut is achieved by cutting the hair shorter and shorter as it moves towards the neck. It is a modern and stylish look that also comes in a variety of forms including the high, mid and low skin fade. This is a popular go-to hairstyle for celebrity Zayn Malik. A low skin fade haircut looks more professional, whereas the mid and high skin fade give off a sporty vibe. This haircut is best if you like to keep your hair extremely short.
Primarily a women’s hairstyle until the 1950’s, the pompadour style originates from 18th century France and is named after chief mistress of Louis XV, Madame de pompadour. Despite its feminine beginnings, this haircut is now considered a truly contemporary men’s style. It is popular among celebrities David Beckham and Adam Levine.
This look is suitable for guys with finer, straight hair. You also need to have plenty of hair to pull off this look, at least 4-6 cm at the fringe and decent hair coverage elsewhere.
The pompadour is extremely flattering on those with an oval face shape. It is also ideally suited for a face with a wide jawline and high cheek bones. This is of course a high maintenance style as it requires product use and regular styling to keep the pomp in place but it’s definitely a classic look.
