7 Must Have Cool Hairstyles for Men
Although men traditionally do not have as many choices as women when it comes to hairstyles, it’s a deceit to say that men’s haircuts are not as important as women’s! They have much importance and can have quite a variety in terms of what you can do with your hair. So try out one of these haircuts for men to stay stylish, even if you’re hair gets done at a Supercuts.
James Franco, the man who seemingly can do and does everything, also can be commended for his cool hairstyle he effortlessly sports most of the time. His hair is textured and mid-length which lends itself to the low maintenance man who wants to spend as little time as possible styling his hair. The Franco hairstyle requires frequent washing, to avoid greasiness, and a small dab of a serum or cream to achieve the pushed back look but once you get the hang of maintaining this one-minute hairstyle, you’ll be as charming as the man himself in little time.
The side part, another element to James Franco’s hair repertoire, works great for men of all ages and adds variation to any haircut. Recently spotted in the fashion world, sleek and slicked down straight haircuts wear the side part well as a conservative and safe-for-work style that works both in the office and at the club. Comb a shine pomade (Paul Mitchell makes one for men that gives extra sheen) through clean, dry hair in the direction you’d like your hair to fall. If your hair is naturally curly or wavy, you too can don a side part but it is not recommended to try the slicked down look or else it might appear as a retro jheri curl.
Hair that’s big on top and short on the sides is very popular for men this season, from young stars like Justin Bieber to the more, ummm…refined.
So maybe you’re not Bieber aged anymore, but an older yet still foxy David Beckham rocks this hairstyle by toning down the top for less volume. And that’s the sheer beauty of this haircut–it looks great as both a funky and fun style as well as a mature iteration of it.
To begin styling, comb the sides of your hair straight down, if the hair there is long enough, like Ashton Kutcher’s here:
Push a styling wax back through the long hair on top of your head. For more volume, brush the hair on top with your fingers a bit, instead of pushing and if you’re going for a more spiky look, use a gel instead of a pomade and pull strands upwards. The versatility of this funky do makes it a must have.
If you’re looking for length but want to remain masculine, take a page from the book of Paul Rudd. His longer and layered haircut is rugged but also classy and another no fuss haircut that will afford you tons of compliments. If your hair is thin, use a mousse while your hair is wet and blow dry upside down. Running a wax through your hair provides definition to the strands and ends and helps keep the style set so you can look polished rather than shaggy.
