It’s December, the festive season is in full swing and it’s time to turn your attention to your Christmas hair – making sure it looks good from every angle at all of the upcoming occasions. This time of year is the perfect opportunity to update your hairstyle to make a dazzling entrance into any social occasion. Here are some of the latest Winter trends for men’s hair to give you a little sprinkle of seasonal inspiration.
The Long Sweep
Long hair is making a steady comeback and is a chic Christmas hair look when kept well groomed. To maintain a masculine feel with shoulder-length hair, opt for a sleek, refined look. Hair is left one length (without layers) to maximise sleekness. Style using a high-gloss pomade, such as MGI pomade through damp hair with your fingers and comb to work back from hairline to ends.
The Relaxed Soft Parting
Anything that looks good on Tom Hardy and Ryan Gosling is good enough for us. This cut has shorter layers and texture throughout. The sides are kept longer and scissor-cut so this style suits men of all ages. There is no specific parting line, but more of a gentle sweep to the side for a relaxed look. This style is ideal for men who don’t want to blow dry as it maximises the easy, straight-out-the-shower vibe. After washing, towel dry and use a product with a shine finish [link to pomade] to create the soft sweep to one side.
The Bleached Crop
If you’re looking for a little more drama this Christmas time, try adding blonde colour to a short crop. Short hair is given a choppier texture on top with bleach used to add more va va voom. The crop can be styled up or forward to create a blunt fringe, depending upon your mood.
The Mid Fade
The mid fade is one of the most popular styles and ideal for creating a harder skin-hair blend line to add a more old-school approach to your fade. When combined with a longer style on top, such as a quiff (pompadour, the mid fade is perfect to wear with a beard. Style with a firm hold product.
The Loose Quiff
Suitable for thicker, wavy hair, this gravity-defying quiff is a modern take on a classic hairstyle but requires some dedication to styling. A traditional quiff haircut is chopped into to remove some weight. Style using sea salt spray, applied to your roots before blow drying with a vent brush. Finish with a small amount of hair dust, working it from roots to hair tip using a wiggling motion to create looseness.
