men’s hair trends 2014

Men’s hair makes a statement. Even more than clothes or shoes, your hairstyle distinguishes you. That’s because hair is always there, whether you’re in a suit or gym shorts. If you’re looking for a new signature look or a style update for 2014, check out our hair salons top 5 men’s hairstyle looks for 2014.

CITY SLICKER

Slicked-back hair made a comeback in recent years following the popularity of period television series like Mad Men. The slick remains a top men’s hair trend in 2014, but this year it’s a little more casual. One of the top looks of 2013 is still going strong in 2014. Slick hair has been the most popular look for models, celebrities, and hipsters all over. If you have an undercut, comb hair straight back, on the diagonal, or across. Without an undercut, style hair with a defined part deep one side, combing hair in the opposite direction.  

 

SOFT SLICK

Another direction that  slick hair  is taking, is keeping the form and subtracting the slick. It’s the same hairstyle styled with a matte or clay product like Aveda’s Control Paste or Men’s Grooming Clay. Going with the softer look, this isn’t meant to be as formal or keep every hair in place so it can be worn tousled or messy.

 

AMERICAN CREW

A long Caesar, essentially a crew cut with a fringe, is a major trend for 2014. This is a cool version of the military inspired crewcut.  Defined lines, bold angles, and unique hairstyles are worn with undercut sides. For a punk-inspired look, get hair cut on an angle. This cool short haircut for men can be styled several different ways. This short but versatile cut can be worn down.

 

THE QUIFF

The quiff is essentially an updated 1950s-style pompadour in which front locks are longer than the hair on the rest of the head. It’s been going strong in recent years as one of the most in-demand cuts for men who take style seriously. After getting the cut right, you’ll need to use gel or pomade along with a blow dryer to coax your hair into defying gravity.  A very 2014 way to interpret the quiff is to keep the under layer and sides of his hair cropped very close to his head. Hair on the crown and the front are then brushed upward as well as toward the side.

 

UNDERCUT

The undercut is another hairstyle that is going strong for 2014. With anything that you choose to do on top, choose close cropped sides and back, this gives  a clean cut look but with a cool edge. The shaved sides of the undercut are getting an update for 2014. Rather than shaving hair and leaving just the top long, this version shaves hair about 2″ from the hair line all around. It can be a dramatic contrast or a more gentle fade into the hairline. This is a clean cut look that can be paired with any hairstyle of your choice. It also grows out easily when you’re ready to make a change.
