Men’s Hair Trends That Aren’t The Fade
Nearly all men’s hair trends include some variation of a fade. And while we love a well-blended fade as much as the next guy (and the one next to him, and the one next to him), there’s more out there to explore. So before you ask your barber to give you the same haircut as every man you’ve seen in the past year, check out these styles that are not the fade.
At one point in time the combover was the men8217s hair trend that everyone made fun of 8211 and now it8217s easily one of the most popular styles of the year Ah how we love a good underdog story especially one that looks this good 8211 yes we8217re talking to you JT The Crew Cut 8211 AKA the dad hairstyle 8211 is back in full force this season Next to a Hard Part Pompadour it looks quite conservative but we find it charming and minimalistic Plus it8217s a great alternative for men with thin locks who may not be able to achieve the thickness and volume required for trends like Quiff or Combover The stark contrast between the shaved sides and the flow at the top is bold and sexy. We definitely prefer it with a nicely groomed beard like this one. Moment of truth If you can rock a French Crop clean shaven we applaud you More often than not this cut leaves you looking like you8217re back in seventh grade It has that beautifully awkward schoolboy look that translates into a dapper manly trend when you leave a little scruff or grow out a full blown beard The hard part has gone in and out of style in the 2000s But you know when you see a guy rocking this trend he8217s best friends with his barber and probably has an impressive shoe collection It8217s 2019 and the man bun is still a thing Mistake We think not 8211 but one thing we8217re sure of is that it looks best with a beard And if you8217re tired of this Pinterest perfect men8217s hair trend spice it up a little with a shaved undercut In a world where it seems everyone is all about the clean cut low fade we love seeing guys rock their natural locks If you were blessed with curls please don8217t chop them off 8211 we beg of you Same haircut 8211 completely different look The pompadour with a clean shaven face looks dapper but with a beard Let8217s just say it8217s rugged and commands a bit more attention in the best way possible that is The Pompadour 8211 the men8217s hair trend everyone wants to be able to pull off We8217ll let you in on a little secret it8217s all about the hair product If you have long enough locks you can achieve this volume Youtuber and Instagram personality Cole LaBrant brought this look back full force There8217s nothing we love more than a man with long hair except for maybe a man bun 8211 which Cole pulls off brilliantly too This clean-cut style pairs well with a tux, a clean-shaven face, and a hard part.
