The Top Men's Hairstyles of 2015

Thinking about changing your hairstyle? Here, the most popular trends in men's hair this year to get you inspired.

Traditionally, summer means shorter locks, but that doesn’t mean you have to make do! It is possible to create bold styles that are effortless and chic. Below is the top men’s hairstyles for 2015. Each of these styles caught our attention for their classic character with a fresh twist. We’ve also factored in how easy the styles are to maintain so you can make the most out of this summer!

The Slick Back

The Slick Back

The Slick Back is ideal for summer as it keeps your hair off your face and requires very little styling. All you need is a wet look product with a strong hold and you’ll be rocking with the best of them! To get this look, ask your barber for a tight fade on the back and sides to create a strong contrast. You want the top layers to be longer so that you can ‘slick them back’ with product.

To style, look for pomades and volumizing products with a strong hold. American Crew Superglue is an excellent choice and will lock in your style. TiGi Hard Head is another great product that will lift your style. Simply run the product from the front to the back and sculpt the bangs into place.

The Relaxed Quiff

Another great style, the Relaxed Quiff lends itself to those warm humid nights of summer. Rather than trying to tame wild locks, the Relaxed Quiff looks better as the day goes on. The trick to this style is to use a product that will refine your curls to prevent frizz. This effortlessly cool style is made possible with the right styling products and regular trims — no split ends, please!

To style, try using Kevin Murphy Easy Rider or L’Oréal Liss Control – both of which are anti-frizz creams that will help tame your hair. There’s no need to be too precise when creating this look; simply use your hands to roughly push, sweep or sculpt your hair into place

Disconnected Sides

Disconnected Sides

Disconnected Sides

For those looking for a daring style this summer, Disconnected Sides are a great go to. This contemporary cut is ideal for spring/summer as it’s easy to style and maintain – perfect for guys that want to keep their hair short but not overly kempt. To get this look, your stylist will need to clip the sides and back tight (you could even request a skin fade), in order to create a dramatic contrast with the length of the hair on top, which should be left slightly longer.

You can either towel dry your hair and go for a rugged, textured look using a little Matrix Play Back Workable Cream, or you can blow-dry it smooth using a small round bristle brush, then add some Matrix Loosely Defined or Kérastase Form Fatale. If you want to accentuate your natural curl, be sure to use a diffuser on a low to medium heat setting when drying, taking care to use slow, circular movements.

Be sure to save this article so that you can take the photos with you to the barber so you can show them exactly the style you want!
