2016 has been the year of inventive, unique hairstyles. While men’s fashion and grooming was once seen as a taboo subject to openly discuss, times have changed. Men who take an interest in keeping their appearance looking its very best have now proudly stepped into the spotlight. It is no longer “cool” or “fashionable” to look unkempt and the most popular hairstyles of today have proven this.

We have gone through thousands of hairstyles, carefully selecting the top 10 looks that we feel will become the most popular of 2017. Not only will you find photos of these looks, but you will learn just how to replicate them for yourself and what to tell your local barber.

1. The Medium Texture

This look, while it looks quite complex, is actually very simple to get. All you have to do is ask for your sides to be cut very short but not shaved completely. Once that is taken care of, you can create this “wild” looking texture up top by blow drying the hair and shaping as you go, then applying a matte finish.

2. The Man Bun With Beard

Just when you think the man bun craze is over, it comes back with a vengeance. There is something so simple about tossing your hair into a bun and being done for the day. This look is perfect for guys with longer locks who don’t have the time or energy to really style their hair on a daily basis. What makes this look particularly unique is the connecting beard that goes along with it. Not only does it look great, but it breathes new life into a look that many would say was overused in 2016.

3. The Short Sides

Having super short sides and longer hair up top is all the rage right now. As a matter of fact, the vast majority of the styles on this list will follow this simple formula. What makes this hairstyle unique is that it is geared towards men with a thicker head of hair. You can consider mixing a high fade with textured hair on top. By styling your fringe in a “spiky” manner, you are giving your already thick hair a lot of texture to work with. Toussle it up a bit and this unkempt but very attractive look will be yours in just minutes.

4. The Ashton Kutcher

I know what you’re probably thinking right now: Ashton Kutcher has had the same hairstyle since the 90’s, so how can it be popular in 2017? Well, while that may be true, there is no denying the simplicity of the hair itself. It is easy to keep up with, doesn’t require constant trims, and has a bit of charm about it when you go a day or two without washing or styling it. If you’re interested in this low maintenance look, you should be sure to talk to your barber about it. Let them know that you want to razor cut your hair to about your chin, then add in side swept bangs and a few layers to help shape your face if you’d like. That’s it!

5. The Natural Flow

This cut is perfect for someone with thicker hair who wants to let their hair do its own thing. This requires a lot of scissor work on the part of your barber because you want your sides to be cut short, but not too short. All you have to do is blow dry your hair with a brush, then add a small amount of pomade to get that side part looking the way that it should. In the end, your hair will look sexy, slicked back, and effortless.

6. The Long And Curly

If you have longer curly hair and you aren’t quite ready to give up on that just yet, here’s the look for you. 2017 is all about taking fashion risks. While men with longer hair used to shove it up in man buns, we are going to see a lot more of this rugged shoulder length ‘do. To get this look right, you’re going to require regular trims. Make sure your hair stays around shoulder length, even adding a few long layers if you’d like for the sake of volume. The best part about this look is that it doesn’t require too much time to do in the mornings. All you have to do is brush it out, put some product in it, and you’re good to go for the day.

7. The Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper is one of countless Hollywood actors who is known for his hair. Unlike most of Hollywood, however, his look requires minimal effort, which makes it even better. To get this long, but professional looking style, you first must grow out your hair. You’re going to want your hair to touch at around the tip of your ears. From there, you can get some simple layers, blow it out, and add a little pomade for that extra finish. Whether your hair is straight, wavy, or downright curly, you can easily pull this look off.

8. The Buzz Cut And Beard

For ages now, buzz cuts were seen as primarily military style haircuts. No one got them just because they looked fashionable… Until now. Chris Evans, for example, has been rocking a buzz cut on and off for a while now. What he does to stylize the look a bit more is add a connecting beard. The combination of a thick beard with the tightly buzzed head of hair looks awesome and is a trend that we see coming into play much more often in 2017. To get this look, all you have to do is buzz your hair and keep your beard looking thick and connected to the hairline.

9. The Slicked Back

Love him or hate him, there is no denying that Scott Disick is something of a fashion icon. Before he donned the heavy beard and pompadour hair he currently has, the self proclaimed “Lord” had this medium length slicked back look a la Patrick Bateman in American Psycho. This timeless look works great for men with thicker hair who don’t want to have a style that will be copied by every other person on the street. Get a great styling gel and practice slicking your hair back after parting and blow drying.

10. The Fade And Part

If you want something truly unique, you may want to consider this extremely bold fade and part combination. The thick part goes right into the tight fade. This look combined with the disconnected beard is actually pretty cool. The best part of this look is that it is definitely not something that you will see other people rocking all too often.
