Turn heads with these on-trend looks.
The days are slowly getting longer and warmer, and the earth is getting ready to show off some fresh new colors from under snow and ice. We can start ditching the heavy outer layers too. If you’ve been firmly in the ‘warm hat all the time’ camp, then your hair could use a little refresh.
We spoke with our hair professional network, and these are three spring hairstyles for men they recommend!
1. FRESH FADES
Is there anything more fresh than a fade? It makes a popular spring hairstyle for men because it can look so versatile on different hair types - straight, curly, and even wavy. You can vary the length on top, blending…there’s no limit to options.
After asking a few of our barbers we work with, here’s a nugget of advice they mention about fades:
“Keep your hair on top looking fresh, don’t let it get too long—about 3-5 inches is great to work with when it comes to styling. What keeps a fade fresh is maintenance so be sure to visit your barber frequently.”
Just make sure you’re using hair care like Cloud Control Hair Oil to keep frizz from ruining the look and to add back moisture to prevent your hair from drying out. And make sure you can stay on top of a frequent maintenance schedule: ideally a fade needs to be touched up every 2-3 weeks before looking messy.
2. MESSY MID-LENGTH
Spring is the time to let loose, so why not go wild and try a messier look?
The key to a messy mid-length look is to make sure you’re on top of the trims and touch ups that keep this spring hairstyle for men from looking like you just rolled out of bed.
Make sure you thin out your hair so it’s not too dense, you don’t want your hair to look too heavy. But instead, more lightweight and careless. And if you’ve got curls or wavy hair, use a product like Fifth Sample Pomade to add definition.
3. SHORT LOOKS SHARP
We know, it sounds scary. But there’s a reason why a close crop is one of the recommended spring hairstyles for men. Warmer weather can bring on frizz and sweatiness that bring unwelcome unpredictability to your personal style. If you want a look that’s easy to maintain, can catch looks, and is versatile, then a close crop or crew cut may be your style.
