Taking this year’s textured look to the next level is another men’s hair trend: styles with lots of movement and flow. Instead of being slicked back with a comb, these fresh looks are styled with fingers for plenty of volume, a natural finish and the appearance of movement.
This hot trend takes classic men’s hairstyles like the slick back, pomp and side part and reinvents them with a looser, messier finish. To get the look, opt for a medium hold product or a malleable pomade that can be reworked through out the day. A blow dryer is also an asset for getting this natural looking volume. Heat helps hair hold it’s shape so styles last longer and less product is required.

9. Long on Top
More length means more flow.
10. Side Part Hairstyle + Taper
Long hair all over with a tapered neckline means there is flow all over. A side part and faded sideburns break up all that natural movement.
