A new year always brings an entire collection of fashion trends with it, and an opportunity to update and improve your look.

With men’s hairstyles changing by the day, it can be difficult to keep up. However, there are some definitive styles that will be trending in 2018, and Philips wants to make sure that you stay ahead and be your fashion forward best.

 

The textured crop

In 2017, short and styled textured haircuts were a big thing and this year is no different. As the textured look continues to gain popularity, trend forecasters have predicted that texture will be added to all kinds of haircuts and styles going forward. The textured crop remains the most popular of the textured styles and is ideal for the guy with curly and wavy hair. The fresh and contemporary look can buff up thin, fine hair or lighten thicker hair.

This style took off in 2016 and it is making a strong comeback! The versatile tapered cut is perfect for ethnic hair. From all angles, this style looks good as it drops fades. The low taper follows the hairline all the way round, leaving length at the back of the neck. It works for either short or long hair and looks best when worn close to the ear.

The crop and fringe

This might come as a surprise, but yes, fringe hairstyles are no longer only worn by women. In fact, the men’s fringe hairstyle covers a huge range of looks and is becoming increasingly popular. The textured crop can have a long or short fringe that is cut blunt or worn to one side. For a bolder look, you can opt for angled bangs halfway down the forehead.

The French crop

For the short-haired man who wants to exude sophistication in an understated way, this low-maintenance but trendy men’s hairstyle is perfect. Because it requires minimal styling, the French crop is the answer for the guy who wants to feel good about his hair, but also keep it simple.

 

Short back and sides

You may think that this look is outdated, but it is just one of those hairstyles that transcends time. While it has been around for decades, in recent years, stylists have named this timeless style the faded cut. A really easy and simple style, short on the back and sides, holding weight in the top. What is great about it is that you can play around with the length and if you prefer doing your hair at home and not at the barber, then this look is easily achievable using the Philips Series 3000 Home clipper. Designed to give you a quality cut or shave, the added various click-on combs ensure a sharp cut which helps you get your desired length and style while the strong blades ensure a meticulous finish, time and time again.

Now all that is left to do is to pick your style and go forth with confidence as you make 2018 your smoothest year yet!
