49 New Hairstyles For Men

Updated on 31 October 2016

So here we are in 2016. Men’s hair and men’s styling techniques have never been more interesting and exciting. Lets take a look at the current men’s hairstyle trends we are seeing right now from the best barbers in the world.

The new hairstyles for men that you will you see during the upcoming holiday and party season and beyond into the new year are a lot of longer hair hairstyles with wild texturized hair on top. This will be combined with short sides including high fades, low fades, bald fades, with or without hard part disconnection, or simply cut with sheers for a more natural short hair look.

The pompadour was a popular men’s hairstyle this year. But the more classic style that was slicked back with extra hold pomades and lots of shine will be seen less except for guys that like their hair cut on the shorter side. Now we are seeing more modern versions of the pomp that are longer, looser, and blown dry to give some big hair styles with movement.

These are the best hair styles that you can try for a brand new look. So, lets take a look at these 49 new hairstyles for men for 2016!
