In 2005 the most popular hair styles were driven by celebrities, most notably the women actresses on “Sex in the City” and “Friends” and you could go down about any city in America and see look a like hairstyles. Some younger gals were thinking that in 2006 they might wish to imitate Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, although we may see more of a 1970’s hybrid between these of Paris and Britney and a more layered look like back then. Men seemed to be quite content with the James Bond style, long hair let it go style and emulating the various GQ heart throbs of the Silver Screen in 2005.
In 2006 going bald will be the biggest trend, as those who have become enlightened will prove that they do not need to impress anyone with something as silly or ridiculous as a hair cut. For those who do not wish to show their enlightened self, we will see a re-emergence of the Ronald Reagan style hair cut for most men and a few will adopt the “I do not give a damn about you or anyone else” haircut style of shock jock Howard Sterns. For the women who are afraid to cut it all off we will see longer hair with a flared layered look. Not quite the Farah Facet haircut of the late 70’s but along that lines and this will be taking hold towards the end of 2006, mostly due to Hollywood’s influence on the masses. Think on this in 2006.
These days men are just as conscious about their hair as women are, and as such there are plenty of stylish mens hair styles that are meant to work with their facial features and personal style preferences.
A few decades ago not much thought was given to the hair styles that men wore, but today there is a large amount of thought put into it. Mens hair styles have come a long way over the past decade, and the modern man wants to look his best for both work and play. While in the bast barbershops were the place for men to go to get their hair cut, many of them today now go to mens speciality hair stylists to get the look that they want.
Both short and medium styles are popular for men, with the former being the slightly more preferred of the two.
The swept up style is especially popular, and can be found in several different varieties. This is a short style with the hair swept up in a variety of directions and held up with gel, styling mousse, or wax. This is a very modern look and is very popular with younger men. A popular addition to this look is having the tips highlighted to give the hair an even more youthful look.
Very short mens hair styles are popular as well. While not quite as short as a bowl cut, these types of hairstyles have a little hair left over in order to brush to the front or to the back. Depending on the amount of hair that is left, it can either look shaggy or extremely clean cut. This is a more conservative look than those that are swept up, and provide a great alternative to the above.
Longer hair lengths are also favorable and depending hair type, the sky can be the limit. If a man does not have thick hair, he can crop it to medium-length and have it layered. This is best for medium or thick hair because it will not be too wispy — with thin hair it is best to stock to any unlayered variations. Having the style cropped up shorter near the face is also popular, with it longer as it progressively goes back.
These are just a few examples of today’s popular hairstyles for men. Within these small examples there are dozens of varieties, and then past those there are several as well. The world of hair fashion and care is no longer just a woman’s world, and mens hair styles are being paid more attention to than ever.
