THE TOP FIVE TRENDING MEN’S HAIRSTYLES FOR 2021
March 14, 2021
The what’s hot in men’s hairstyles is constantly in a state of change. Trends seemingly work in cycles and a haircut that is considered to be unfashionable and outdated today can quickly become the hot new trend and the look that everybody is asking for tomorrow. Today we take a look at the big five current trends in men’s hairstyles.
5. Low Fade Messy Quiff
Here we see longer and looser hair up top, enough to be styled high with good volume. This drops down into a low fade and a nice overall balance is created. The combination is becoming quite popular and it works extremely well for men with wavy hair types and those looking for a style that is both smart and casual.
4. Messy Layers
Since the time before time, long and messy hair has been an easy identifier for rebels, rockers and social misfits. The coronavirus pandemic has shown us the visible hand of big government and in retaliation a wave of modern day freedom fighters have emerged. The prominent hairstyle of choice? Long, messy layers. This hairstyle works best for anarchists and those trying bring down the government.
3. Crop Top
Coming in at number three and getting to the pointy end we have the crop top. This is one of those hairstyles that found former glory before falling out of favour and and is now making a rebound and resurgence. Remember the long fringe of those emo side sweeps? Well, the crop top is the sensible and contemporary opposite. The cut works best for those with thick hair and natural textures so that styling compliments the natural growth patterns. For thinner hair, style with texturising powder.
2. Burst Fade
Quite commonly combined with a mohawk, the burst fade is a popular fade haircut development of recent years. The burst fade differs from a low or mid fade because the fade arcs down around the ear in a semi circle shape and does not continue along the neckline. This burst fade is a versatile haircut that works well with a variety of different lengths on top and at the neckline. Exceptionally well fitting to tight curls and afro hair.
1. The Mullet
Coming in at number one, the iconic mullet, the haircut once reserved for the bravest of men, business at the front and a party at the back. The modern day mullet is typically more refined than it’s 70’s predecessor and could be considered to be almost classy. Most commonly requested in very short formats the style is seemingly everywhere nowadays and tops our list as the most trending men’s hairstyle for 2021.
