Top Men's Haircuts For 2016-2017

MEN’S HAIR! THE TOP CUTS OF 2016-2017.

Mens Hair Fringe Haircut

If the men in your life are anything like ours, then you know that they’re often in desperate need of a hair cut, but simply don’t know what to get.

Sure, these are male models – but why can’t your man look just as polished as they do?

Well, we’re here to tell you that they can & will with the help of Music To My Hair and our team of super-star hair artists.

We’re breaking down our favorite mens hair cuts as of late.

Plus, to make it easy, he can just show the photo of the cut he likes best to his hair stylist. Voila! Easy.

ANGULAR FRINGE

This hair cut really is so customizable.

Whether you prefer your hair to have some rugged volume, crazy texture, or look clean cut & straight – you can make it work with the angular fringe cut.

Not only does this hair style create interesting lines and dimension, but it also accentuates bone structure.

Hard Part And Pompadour Mens HairTHE PART & POMPADOUR BLEND

The hard side part & the pompadour are two hair styles that have become pretty popular over the last few years.

Our thoughts: Why not mix the two?

The best part is that the majority of this look is in the styling.

So let’s say you’re not in the mood to fuss with styling. Simply sweep your hair to the side and add a little product for hold or let it fall tousled onto your forehead.

The trick is, regardless of how you decide to wear your hair, the side part is just enough to make it look like you put some effort in (even if you didn’t!)

Music To My Hair Mens HaircutsSOME CAESAR ON THE SIDE, PLEASE!

Maybe you never want to worry about styling your hair? Then this next look might be right for you.

Let us clue you in on a little secret… as long as you have a quality cut, your hair can look pretty perfect with little to no maintenance (especially for those of you who opt for a shorter style!)

We’re feeling this faded style lately. Leaving just enough at the top gives the look a quintessentially roman feel. Thus effectively leaving the subtle impression that you’re an all-powerful warrior on everyone around you.

Who wouldn’t want that?

Long Curly Hair Men CutLONG & UNRULY

Last, but certainly not least, those of you with curly hair probably have some difficulty picking a style that is simultaneously edgy and suitable for your hair texture.

Try going with something a little longer at the top with a clean, but slight taper towards your ears & neck.

Not only does this cut look incredible on curly/wavy hair, but it’s also pretty easy to maintain at home!

How To Do A Rope Braid Pony Tail

MTMH: HOW TO DO A ROPE BRAID PONY TAIL

jw-anderson-spring-summer-2016-hair-trends

THE STYLE

Fashion Week always sets the tone for the upcoming seasons trends. For those in the creative arts industries, Fashion Week provides inspiration and rekindles the flame of passion for all things hair, makeup, and fashion. One of our newest obsessions is the rope braid ponytail!

The style team at Aveda pulled off a beautiful rope braid pony tail over at the Public School show & Rebecca Minkoff opted for a bohemian version of the classic & sleek braid pony tail.

STEP 1. SMOOTH & SLEEK

Smooth your hair back using the Aveda Light Elements Smoothing Fluid $29. Secure with an elastic band.

STEP 2. HIDE YOUR BAND

To hide your elastic, wrap a small piece of hair around the hair band and secure with pins. This will give your hair a more polished look.

STEP 3. SPLIT IT UP

Next, split your pony tail into two equal sections. Begin twisting the hair in each section to the right.

Cross the right section of hair over the left section to begin forming the rope twist braid.

STEP 5. FOLLOW THROUGH

Continue twisting your separate sections to the right as you wrap the sections over each other to the left. Once you’ve reached the end of your braid, secure with a clear elastic.

STEP 6. FINISH IT OFF

Finish this look by blasting your hair with a strong hair spray like the Aveda Control Force Hairspray $31. This will help to keep the style in place & smooth away any potential fly aways. For added measure, spritz a bit of shine spray – we suggest the Brazilian Blowout Acai Shine Spray $28 for a beautiful finish.

BOHO CHIC VERSION

Prefer the more bohemian version of this style? Follow the steps below to get the Rebecca Minkoff runway hair styled by Tommy Bucket.

rope-braidSTEP 1. ROUGH IT UP

For this version, we suggest prepping your hair with a high quality texturizing spray & thickening tonic to create a rough base. Try out the Living Proof Instant Texture Mist $27 & the Aveda Thickening Tonic $29. 

STEP 2. BEND & SNAP

Using a flat iron, bend sections of hair back and fourth to create some body and encourage additional texture.

STEP 3. PART IT

Part hair down the center & pull it back into a ponytail at the nape of the neck. Secure with a clear elastic.

STEP 4. SEPARATE

Just like before, split the pony tail into two separate sections & roll them counter-clockwise.

STEP 5. TWIST TOGETHER

Twist the two pieces together to create the bohemian undone rope braid, securing at the bottom with a hair tie.

STEP 6. MESSY DO

Using your fingers, separate & rough the surface of the braid to create an effortless boho look. Set the look with hairspray & apply a small amount of the Davines Oi Oil to the front sections of the center part for a radiant shine.

Try out this look at home for yourself! Make sure to tag us in a photo using the hashtag #musictomyhair on social media! We love seeing your recreations.
