With only a few weeks left in 2017, it’s time to look at the best new hairstyles for men in 2018. Many of the cool, trendy men’s hairstyles of earlier years will likely carry over to the new year, meaning that the most popular haircuts will likely continue to be fades, undercuts, pompadours, comb overs, quiffs, slick backs, and even man buns or top knots, if you can pull them off. More specifically, expect a lot of “short sides, long top” hairstyles which combine a low or high fade with texturized hair on top. Perfect example would be the disconnected undercut, modern pompadour, slick back fade or cropped hair, all of which are included below. However, be on the look out for longer styles that are worn textured and loose.Looking around the fashion industry, here are the latest and most popular new hairstyles for guys in 2018.
1. Low Fade with Long Fringe
Longer styles have been a popular trend this year. This thick and textured fringe on top is coupled with a low taper fade on the sides for a stylish look. And with just enough length on top to let your hair become wavy, we highly recommend this cool men’s haircut for young guys!
2. High Fade with Fohawk and Design
There are endless variations of hair designs, but this one is paired with an awesome fade haircut. What makes the fade so cool is how versatile yet low maintenance it is. Whether you pick a high, mid, low, bald, or taper on the sides, a fade works well with any modern short cut for men.
3. High Fade with Loose Pompadour
Getting the pompadour haircut is easy, and requires only a good pair of clippers and 3 to 5 inches of hair on top. For the sides, guys can get a fade or undercut. Styling your pomp will require a quality pomade or wax, allowing you to add height and style. This pompadour incorporates a clean skin faded undercut and a full beard.
4. High Fade with Hard Part and Quiff
To get the quiff, you will need at least 3 inches of hair on top of your head. The sides will then be buzzed into a taper fade – how short is up to you. Guys have the option of a high, low, mid, or skin fade. For an extreme look, a very short clipper setting will create a lot of contrast, while those wanting a classic look can choose a gentler taper.
5. Long Messy Hair with Low Fade
This fresh low bald fade and line up balance the messy, textured hairstyle up top. By working a small amount of pomade into your hair, guys can create a natural look that stays in place all day.
