2017 Summer Hair Trends For Men by Celebrity Hairstylist Asgar Saboo

With the passing of July and with August fast approaching, the holiday season reaches its pinnacle, as people around the globe prepare to pack their bags for a week in the sun. Whether it be Ibiza, Milan, Goa or Dubai, what better opportunity to spice up your look with a fresh new trim to impress on your travels this summer. The top men's summer trend this year is the short back and sides with a textured top layer, oozing style, swarve and fashion cognition. Asgar Saboo, celebrity hairstylist to the likes of Cindy Crawford & Eva Longoria gives his expert take on the top men's styles for this season, helping you to stay one step ahead of the game

The Textured Quiff, Top Volume

This is the less polished, more textured version of a quiff with depth that is not too structured. Following the trend with shorter back and sides this style is easy to maintain and depending on the length of the quiff you can change up your style at any time.

TOP TIP: Have your barber clipper your hair short on the sides and back, fading into longer hair on the top that's point-cut with scissors for an uneven, nicely textured look. To style, you can work texture power to the roots to add depth and bulk, adding volumising spray will also work. Then, rub paste or a soft clay between your fingers and hands so the warmth of your palms makes the product more manageable. Twist the hair slightly at the sides of the crown, pushing it upwards, before passing your hands through the quiff until you are happy with the result and the quiff stays in place. Finish with a strong hold hair spray to make the quiff extra secure.

The Taper Fade

The taper fade haircut is one of the most classic and fashionable styles for men, which is a masculine, yet a fresh look that's perfect for casual or professional occasions.

For the taper look you need to have the sides cut or buzzed considerably shorter than the length of the hair on top. This is the key component, as after the hair is cut, styling the hair consists of just the top portion. There are many way to wear the tapered fade from sweeping your hair over to the side, tussling it up for the Ďjust out of bed look' to polishing off the look via using product to push the hair into an upward motion for a forward fringe.

Short and Choppy

Short and choppy is a more low maintenance style that evolved from last year's longer hair trend to a more loose and textured style. The top is now slightly shorter and the sides have been clipped down for more of a contrast much like the taper fade, but less dramatic. The choppiness also gives the illusion of more texture, bulk and weight to the hair, thus making it seem thicker.

TOP TIP: Use a water based gel and tussle your hand through the hair until happy with the styled result. You can also use a thicker paste applied to the roots for a secure hold or for a slightly less wet look. If you have particularly thin hair a root booster powder to optimise volume and will give a matte finish. This style is intended to look slightly ruffled and messy so styling needn't take an hour.. Just ruffle and go.

The Buzz Cut

The buzz cut is a great look and very useful when the weather gets sweltering hot. It's a style that is easy to maintain and looks great with stubble or a beard and is particularly complementary towards a chizzled jaw line

TOP TIP: Your need to remember that not all buzz cuts needs to be a really short length 0 all around, a number 1 or 2 buzz can also look great if you prefer slightly more hair. Face shapes are all different so one length won't fit all. You can always change your buzz cut up by mixing it up with a high fade, low fade and varying lengths of your desire.

The Side Part Pompadour

The side part pompadour starts with hair that fades from the top to bottom with a hard parting with a flat blade razor so precision is key. This style looks great with a good length fringe or swept over.

TOP TIP: The best ways to style this look is to spread product over your hand and fingers and using your palms and smooth the product into the sides. Combing the top section away from the parting so there is a clean divide and lift your fringe and from the shape of the fringe into your desired style.
