With top knots, hipster beards and messy buns all the rage last year thanks to the resurgence of old school barber shops, it’s now time to look towards the fuelling mane trends for 2015 before you choose how to tame your up - top…
The ‘It’ Styles
1. The Weightier Fringe
With the settling down of both hipster trends and ultra-classic cuts, we’re excited to see men’s hair finally snatching its edge back with this new fringe - focused style. To get the look, keep both your back and sides super short and sharp, particularly the crown area. When it comes to your front, the key is to keep the hair longer and slightly heavier, with the fringe maintained on a fairly regular basis. This is a great style to play around with, especially as the fringe becomes longer, allowing you to style it differently according to occasion or mood! To perfect the weighted fringe style, we’d opt for a styling product that won’t give your hair too much of a sheen nor an overly styled look – seek out fibre pastes or waxes for a firm hold.

2. Side Part Pompadour
Consistently sneaking into runways and red carpets for years, we can now safely say that the classic pompadour is here to stay, although with a (thankfully!) modern rejuvenation. Pompadours pride themselves on being able to work with various lengths of hair – giving you the choice to keep it either super long or short on top. What we’re loving at the moment is a super short side, perhaps even a fade for those who are a little more daring, with a luscious, thicker pompadour on top. The trick to perfect this style is to keep your pompadour looking effortless and natural – so any over – styling is adverse. More classic cuts would have the back kept at a regular length, though an undercut all the way around is a more modern, yet still completely gentlemanly alternative!

3. Caesar Haircut
Constantly on the run? Hair not as luscious as you’d like? Thankfully, one of the key trends for the coming year will suit you just fine. The Caesar Haircut is the buzz cut style for the year ahead, priding itself as being one of the most easy to maintain and masculine styles. Favourited by many a Hollywood gent, the shorter length on top is incredibly easy to spike up or mess around with, requiring only a dab of wax or styling gel, often staying in place practically all day long – though a ‘hands off daddy’s hair’ may be required every now and again for all the fathers out there!
