Men’s Hair Trends & Ideas

Men’s Hair Trends at HAIR LAB salon in Basingstoke

Thinking of trying out a brand new look for spring?  Are the type of man who wears the same hairstyle year in year out?  We take a look at the top five fashion-forward hairstyles for men to inspire you when it’s time for your next hair appointment at Hair Lab in Basingstoke!

1. The Buzz Cut

Caeser Buzz Cut 2With the release of the latest Coen Brothers movie ‘Hail, Caesar!,’ we reckon we’re about to see more men asking for a cool update on this classic look.

This style is usually very short at the side, with hair swept forward on the top.  Remember Justin Bieber’s early version which sparked a generation of young men wearing hair swept over their faces?  This is a more grown-up version of that style.

The short length makes it easy to maintain and this style looks great when you work in a little texture for a messy, understated look.



2. The Skin Fade with Quiff

The PompadourYour quiff can be as tall as you like but make sure you ask for a skin fade to bring it up to date.

Wear your hair swept upwards from the face and high over the forehead in a massive quiff or even higher pompadour (a style which first rose to fame in the 1700s!)

Ask your stylist for a #2 or #3 on the sides and to fade your hair from there upwards so it gets slightly longer as it reaches your quiff.

Anything longer than shaved sides and you won’t get this look. There should still be some length on top which gives you the option of wearing the top in a quiff, slicked back or texturised.

3. The Disconnected Undercut

Disconnected UndercutWhat is a Disconnected Undercut?  This is where the sides of the hair are either cut extremely short or shaved – usually to one length all round – so you get a noticeable disconnect or contrast between the sides and the top of the hair.

Wear your hair slicked back on top or in a quiff – the style options are up to you as it’s the disconnected undercut that gives this look its quirkiness.

If you are in doubt as to which style will suit you, talk to your stylist at HAIR LAB.

We can help you work out the perfect hair cut for you.



4. Beards

Slick Back and Beard


Beards are here to stay during the early part of 2016 at least!

We appreciate that a beard isn’t really a hairstyle but it is definitely a fashion statement, none-the-less!

If you fancy a change, it’s time to hide your razor and start growing your beard.  Keep it looking neat and tidy with regular visits to HAIR LAB for a beard trim!

Looking for a cool hairstyle to match your beardy look?  Wear your hair a little longer, with a side parting and slick it back with some pomade.


5. Curly Hair For Gents


It’s time to embrace your curly hair chaps!

We can give curly hair a great and masculine make-over.  All we need to do is add some layers or give you an undercut or a skin fade for a look that will stand out from the crowd.

When it comes to styling curly hair, our expert stylists can show you the right hair products and give you some great styling tips.

There are a number of ways you can style your curls from subtle, gentle waves to tight curls.
