Men's Hair Trends 2017

Don't worry guys we haven't forgotten you, it is Manuary after all. The time for men to take control of their health, mental wellbeing and of course their hair. 

So this post is entirely dedicated to your hair, trends and the products that will see you through the year.

Lets start with what is going to be out on the streets this year. Longer, more textured styles on top and longer hair in general are tipped to be the hair of 2017. 

The old school deep side partings and the 40s, 50s style hair are phasing out and the more grungy 90s look is on it's way back around. 

The skin fade is still going to be everywhere but this year but going into a more textured top and fringes worn forwards. The longer top means a more versatile haircut but the sharp structure of the sides keep the look smart.

Beards are becoming slightly more tailored and controlled, the big bushy beard is shrinking.

What's the story morning glory? Think 90s, drinking in your mates basement, listening to Oasis and wanting to be Liam Gallagher.

A modern twist on this classic haircut. The longer sides are still there but keeping the back slightly more controlled and tailored than its 90's counterpart. Again the fringe is down and the general hair texture is kept very natural and messy.

So what products can we use to create your style?

Our top products here at Lau for mens styling is Mitch by Paul Mitchell. Their range covers all different textures, holds and shine. From strong hold ultra-matte Matterial to Barbers Classic moderate hold high shine to Hardwired maximum hold spiking glue. 

For the shorter more controlled styles Matterial is perfect, its gives you the hold while staying very matte finish. If you want a slightly more natural finish but still strong hold the Reformer is still a matte product but keeps the hair with some natural shine. 

For the longer, grungy styles Steady Grip is a firm favourite. This can be put into wet hair and blowdried  into the hair or used in dry, to give natural looking shine and long lasting firm hold. 

If you want your hair to look more lived in then Construction Paste is the way to go, it is a mesh styler and this weird texture in your hands gives great texture to an undone look. They even do special shampoos to cleanse out all the product fully to stop any nasty build up.
