This year has been pretty exciting for men’s hairstyle trends. So far we have seen the rise of the ‘love it or hate it’ Man Bun, the super trendy undercut, and their love child the Top Knot. The fade is also still going strong, which combined with the undercut to bring you the under-fade.
Men’s hair has really been put into the spotlight this year, bringing us plenty of trends. Remember the man bun April fool’s ASOS pulled earlier in the year?
While some people loved the idea of a clip-on man bun, it’s safe to say most people weren’t exactly feeling it.
Here are some of our favorite reactions:
“Thank you ASOS for selling a clip in man-bun and fool proof asshole detector.”
“Don’t know how anyone could actually find a man with a bun attractive, especially if it’s a clip on one from asos. What’s going to be next”
“It makes me a little sad that this is really a thing… although maybe its just the man version of extensions?”
“that asos clip on man bun sh!t is so f*cking ugly i wish i could report and block it”
Let’s take a closer look at some of 2015’s most popular men’s hairstyles:
The Top Knot
The top knot became so popular, it even has its own Tumblr account, Guys With Top Knots. If you need some Top Knot inspiration, check it out for a collection of pretty impressive styles on a variety of hair types.
When it comes to listing mens hairstyles of 2015, the fade can’t be left out from the list. From the temple fade, to the clean-cut fade, low fade and buzzcut with fade, this popular trend is still going strong. Here are some of our top picks to give you a bit of inspiration.
This high skin fade by Braid Barbers mixes things up by slicking back on a diagonal, instead of to the side. Add a trendy waxed moustache for extra style points.
Another Braid Barber’s masterpiece, this skin fade Pompadour comes with a natural side parting.
This fohawk with skin fade from @alibarber208 is pretty impressive and helps to show that the fade works with a variety of hairstyles.
Type in #underfade into Instagram and you are greeted with nearly 400 images of a variety of underfade styles. If you dig this look but aren’t sure which style to go for, head on over to Instagram for some inspiration.
This classic hairstyle is still going strong in 2015 and suits men of all ages, face shapes and hair types. It is generally characterized by large volume on top and tightly held down sides.
The classic look maintains a bit more length throughout the haircut while the edges are still tapered really right.
The more modern, or extreme, version clippers the sides right down to a grade one, or goes straight for the skin fade.
To get the right styling for your face shape, it’s always best to consult your stylist for some personal advice. They will be able to guide you to a cut that will get the right balance and complement your face shape.
