Consequently, Pouted lists the most popular haircuts that took 2017 by storm. So, take notes and learn how to maintain the haircut you desire, because, Pouted will give you the steps and information you ask for.
5 Crew Cut
A crew cut is a type of hairstyle in which the relatively longer guard on the top of the head with buzzed sides that are short graduated in length. It is named after Ivy League crew teams who wanted to keep their hair away from their faces. In order to adopt such timeless haircut, do as the following instructions: buzz tightly on the sides, at 1/16 inch at the neckline and ears, then graduate up and let your hair grow a little bit longer above the ears, let the hair long on the top of the head, the crown part. Such alluring haircut was recently seen on handsome male celebrities like Channing Tatum.
4 Texture On Top
Not all men are for tidy and kempt haircuts. Considering different tendencies and personalities, one shows messy and spontaneous haircut like “texture on top”. “In 2017, we’ll see men keeping the sides of their hair short and creating the top as the main focal point, embracing longer, more textured styles on top” says Stelios Nicolaou, Aveda’s master barber. So, relating to Nicolaou’s words, what makes the “texture on top’ different from the “crew cut”? The hair on top is gradually longer than the sides in the “crew cut”. “Texture on top”, in contrast, lacks the graduation point between the top and the sides because the hair on the top is so much longer than the sides that it is noticeable. In addition, the hair on top is messy, unevenly and lacks coherence of the hair length.
3 Grey Hair
Who said going grey is only for adults? Nowadays, the younger generation is going after dyeing their hair grey. Recently “going grey” has been a drooling over style rather than an issue related to ageing and anxiety, since this silver style was complemented by those young celebs as Zayn Malik. However, it all lies in the haircut as a sleek and trendy like the pompadour haircut will render your look younger and aesthetic, despite the hue. When it comes to adults, there is nothing that will make you embrace the fact of loving yourself and being secure more than letting your hair go gunmetal. Such fact was proven by Hollywood’s gentlemen such as George Clooney and John Slattery, as they have the most natural hair grey. For adults, most light haircuts will boost their elegance whether it was a crew cut or just long.
The Pompadour is a hairstyle that took 2016 by storm and will stay on the scene in 2017. The pompadour has declared itself as the popular haircut that suits every profession and all generations, despite slight differences. The roots of the popular haircut are traced back to France as it is named after Madame de Pompadour, who was King Louis XV mistress, as the first to have the haircut. Since then, it has been considered as a female haircut until Elvis Presley came onto the scene and changed the predominant notion of the femininity of the haircut. Since Mr Presley adopting the hair cut, the world has been sent onto a flight of craziness. A typical pompadour is marked with short sides, with the top hair drifted upwards and backwards. Anyways, as years pass, the look has been in and out, but with slight differences that makes it more multi-faceted as there will always be a pompadour that one can keep while taking their face shape and skin tone into account.
1 Man Bun
Long hair for men has been associated with being a hipster and care-free. However, the man bun came into the scene to prove us wrong and break all those stereotypical frames. Man Bun is not bound by tattoos and pierces. On the contrary, it can be worn in an utterly organised and kempt manner, like an office style. Apparently, the Man Bun is when a man pulls his hair back from his forehead and ties it up just in the centre of his head. For more versatility, a man can let some hair left out, it depends on the occasion and the style he aims at. How much time does it take to grow your hair for a Man Bun? If you starting off with merely short hair, it may take from a year up to a year and a half. However, if you are starting off with medium hair, it may take from seven to nine months, probably.
Finally, as always, one shall go for the haircut that suits his face shape, skin tone, facial features and hair thickness in order to boost their elegance and manhood. The list displays various haircuts for various hair colors and lengths. If you have short hair, you may go for the crew cut. For a medium length hair, go for the pompadour or the texture on top haircuts. However, the man bun is the solution, if you appreciate your long, thick hair. Apparently, haircuts are not only about hair length as hair colors play a major role on the scene as the silver hair is really on fire in 2017, for both the young and older generations.
