2016 was a year of constant experimentation and immense creativity being shown off by the best barbers and hairdressers around the world. Men’s haircuts in 2017 will continue with that trend as we see cool new short haircuts, medium length haircuts and longer hairstyles.
Never have we seen so much diversity in men’s hairstyles. The days of running with the same old haircuts for years are totally over. Young men are willing to try something new each time they visit the barbershop in hopes of standing out amongst the crowd.
1) The Classic Undercut
For something a little more conservative, go for a classic cut which still maintains trimmed sides, but leaves the top not too long. The classic undercut is recommended for those who may be a little apprehensive about this haircut because it is relatively simple and isn’t too extreme.
2) Layered Undercut
For something a bit different, a layered undercut is what you will want. This version of the cut is also advised for those who want to add fullness and depth to your hair from a visual perspective. By adding layers, this will visually amplify your locks, working to make the hair look more voluminous.
3) Slicked Back Undercut
The trick to pulling off the slicked back undercut is to ensure your hair is long enough to style it back. You’ll want your hair longer, and the key to ensuring it looks polished is to use a great quality hair product to tame the longer proportions up top.
4) Side Swept Undercut
The side-swept version of the undercut is best channelled in pompadour-esque styling. Much like the slicked back version, the first step to harnessing a side swept undercut is to ensure you have longer proportions up top so the slicking of the hair works well with the shorter sides of your haircut.
5) Puffy Undercut
The one thing that you will need to pull off the puffy undercut is a lot of volume and texture. This version of the undercut is also dependent on the kind of hair that you naturally possess. Gentlemen with curlier hair types will find this styling easier to recreate, particularly when it comes to applying product to your hair to enhance your natural waves.
6) Disconnected Undercut
The disconnected undercut relies on a stark contrast between your hair up top alongside the shaven sides of your hair, distinguished with a line. There is a refined way to interpret this version of the undercut, and it comes down to styling.
7) Long Undercut
For those looking to make a statement with their hairstyle, the longer-haired undercut offers just that. The combination of short sides with long, unrestrained hair on top makes for an eye-catching juxtaposition. Thi cut also brings a sense of style to a long-haired look that might otherwise appear unkempt and careless.
8) Top Knot Undercut
Perhaps you are looking to keep the long hair with your undercut but in a more restrained, modern context. The men’s top knot is still as popular as it has been for the past couple of years.
Channel the 1950s into your undercut with a voluminous, rockabilly pompadour. The pompadour works best with longer locks and brings a stylish and slick look to your length. Think along the lines of the slicked back version of this cut, but bigger and bolder. You’ll want to use a wet-look, strong-hold gel product and comb for the most genuine interpretation of the ’50s look.
10) Forward-Swept Undercut
Let’s get this straight, forward does not necessarily equal a fringe. That being said, forward-swept hair brings a modern take on this haircut, and could bring about the fringe’s resurgence in 2017. The cut offers a neat look that works best with shorter hair. Use a matte hair product to add some interesting texture to this look. If it has been a while since your last fringe, opt for consistent length across the top, you will soon learn how (and if) a fringe works with your face.
