11 Trendy Fall Hair Cuts Perfect for the Modern Man
In recent years, men have become much more experimental with their hair. This desire has seemingly been driven by wanting to look unique, in addition to the freedom that comes with being able to express yourself through your hair. For fall, here are some of the most popular cuts, which you can easily adjust to suit your individual look. These cuts can also be tailored to meet your lifestyle needs and hair type.
HairStyleOnPoint.com reveals the hottest hair styles of the year that will carry you into the fall 2015 season:
1. Angular fringe
A cut that I have seen all over Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a.k.a hipster central, is the angular fringe, an emerging trend among male fashion models in 2014 that is still going strong in 2015. This look is achieved by tapering the sides of your hair. It’s important to make sure to keep the top layer long and cut it at an angle. This cut is best suited for men with a round face, but almost every face shape should be able to pull it off.
2. Caesar hair cut
Aptly named for Julius Caesar because this was the cut he sported, it is as popular today as it was in Ancient Roman times. It is a popular buzz cut that will always be in style because it’s so easy to maintain, and incredibly easy to spike. All you need is a dime size of cream or styling gel, and within seconds, you’ll be good to go. This is for the busy man, as well as for men who have strong, beautiful faces.
3. Simple casual
This involves shorter sides with the cut gradually getting longer toward the top. It’s easy to maintain and similar to the slicked back look. It works best with straighter hair, especially if you plan to leave it a lot longer on the top. Use a little styling cream or gel and then do a quick brush through. This look, although casual, is high fashion and is for men who want to embrace their textured hair.
4. Brushed up
Think David Beckham. This one is a little longer than simple casual, but keeps the hair on the sides and in the back shorter than what’s on top. This look is incredibly sexy, is quick and easy to style with pomade or gel, and goes with any style or occasion.
5. Side part pompadour
This style has come and go throughout fashion history, and has recently made a comeback. Keep the sides short and the top long. Part the hair on either the far right or left and sweep in the opposite direction. Keep the style in place with pomade.
6. Short back and sides
This style has a short back and sides with a longer layer on the top. The hairstyle is meant to sweep over the head and gradually taper to a tip at the front. This cut is ideal for men who want to add a touch of uniqueness to their style.
7. The side part
This is similar to the side part pompadour, but there are differences between the two. This sexy trend works well for men with long enough hair to sweep it over, and is ideal for someone who is constantly on the go, because the look can be achieved in a few minutes. All you need to do is part the hair on the side of your head and sweep it over to one side. Part on either side, and use a little pomade to keep it in place.
8. Simple short
The name of the style says it all: Keep your hair a little longer on the top, with the sides and back short. Simple short is perfect for those who want a no-fuss hairstyle that also provides the freedom to play with the look from time to time. To style, use a little hair gel and tussle through the hair to create a spiked or bedhead look.
9. Slicked back
Or as I like to call it: slick, sexy, and cool. Similar to the simple short, this cut is a little longer on the top, and the sides are still short but a little longer. Instead of tussling your hair, slick it straight back. Don’t plaster it to your head — it should also exude an effortless style. Take a little gel and slick from front to back in one motion.
10. Undercut variation
For the funky guy who wants to make a statement, undercuts are perfect. The hair is shaved and gradually gets longer both in the back and on the sides, and it’s meant to look disconnected and faded. Trust us, it’s a pretty cool style to try.
11. Longer styles
Long is in! Take a look at some of these styles. Long hair is for the manly man, the adventurer, and the archaic man. Long hair is great on all different hair textures, and if you tire of it for the day, you can just throw it back in a fantastic man bun.
