2017 short hair trends

Work is back and Christmas is a distant memory, but it’s now time to get that first haircut of 2017 as the one you had just before Christmas is starting to get a bit long and disorderly.

So, to make sure you don’t just turn up to your hairdresser or barber and say “cut my hair”, we have gone to an expert in men’s hair and asked what’s on trend in hair for 2017.

In this first of three parts, we asked Sydney’s King of Hairdressing Alex PF Jackson to choose five on-trend haircuts for men who want short hair in 2017.

“Short hair has come back into fashion in late 2016 as beards start to disappear from the faces of men,” explained Alex PF Jackson.

“Men are now looking at going for more of a clean-cut, wholesome, business style look this year and particularly short hair is returning to classic lengths and very short back and sides.

“Textured hair, spiky and messy cuts are back in (If ever they really left) while many are being combined with fades of all types to give the face more room to breath.”

Let’s take a look at five of the most likely hair trends for 2017.

1. Crop Haircut for Men with High Fade

Perhaps the most popular haircut right now for men. This cropped haircut features a high fade and is styled in a very natural way.

To get this look quickly towel dry and add product. As you can see this haircut also works well for fine hair.

2. Slick Hairstyle for Men with Straight Hair

This is a great looking hairstyle for men with straight hair.

It features a high fade and some length in the fringe or bangs.

To easily achieve this look, casually blow dry hair side-to-side and up at the front using your fingers.

Use a light-medium hold matte cream.

3. Short Spiky Men’s Hairstyle with High Skin Fade

Short Spiky Men’s Hairstyle with High-skin Fade – A young Zayn Malik

This is a short men’s hairstyle that we have seen quite a bit this year where the fade is taken very high up the head with disconnection from top to side.

Versatility in smart, sharp, clean lines for business during the week and fancy-free for the weekends.
