Autumn Winter 2018 Hair Trends For Men
This year’s hair trends continue to be less conventional rather than the traditional short back and sides styles. Of course, this classic look is still going strong but this season it is more about a cropped late 90s, early 00’s look, with textured tops and blunt fringes as opposed to the butchered, super short all over, short back and sides. There are a lot of autumn/ winter 2018 hair trends for men to choose from. The key to ensuring that your latest hairstyle does not end up looking dated is to pick something that will stand the test of time. (Read more below)
The classic high-top haircut is back in all its 90’s glory. Otherwise known as the box cut or box fade, the high-top fade is a sharp and structured style perfect for those who want manageable but voluminous hair.
The afro fade is all about short sides and a wild curly top. With less maintenance required than the box fade, an afro fade with curly twists is a variant of the box cut, allowing for more natural hair growth on top. The sides and back of the hair are faded high, low or skin/bald. The full afro is still a look reserved only for the brave, but the style has become more accessible to the conservatives amongst us.
If your hair does not have the type of tight curls required for the afro fade and is instead more like ringlets, loose curls with a fade or undercut could be a great hairstyle choice for you. The faded sides and back provide a strong contrast to the curls on top, which can be styled loose and messy or parted to the side.
Perfect for those who like to keep a sharp, clean hairline, the line-up adds style and structure to your hair. For black men sporting a buzz cut, waves, or a cool fade haircut, the line-up is a distinct and effective way to accentuate a strong jawline and chiselled face.
Twists have been a staple for black men but adding the fade to the classic style adds modern relevance. Before you get the cut, you will need at least 2 to 4 inches of hair on top of your head. The twist with fade haircut is that the fade on the sides allows for variation – you can get a high, low, skin, or burst fade. The final hairstyle will always look polished and unique.
Dreadlocks are getting a new burst of life, whether long or short and looks just as good with a smart suit or with the casual street style trend.
On a final note, fringes are generally thought of as a feminine haircut, so the concept of a man fringe is something new. Best for poker-straight, fine hair to add shape to limp locks.
