Blue Tit reveals top mens hair trends for SS18

Chris Merrick, Salon Partner, Blue Tit Crouch Hill, Reveals The Top Men's Hair Trends Of Spring/Summer 18


Parting Ways



Last season was all about the styles sported by Nineties' heartthrobs and after seeing the new season shows, it seems we'll be throwing it back to the Nineties for a little longer, as centre-parted bangs – think Backstreet Boys' Nick Carter – are back with a bang! Fen Chen Wang continued the Nineties revival that kicked off last season at Fendi, with centre-parted curtains that can be recreated very easily. A pomade will add some guts and grime to the look – an essential feature of Nineties' hair – and a fine toothed-comb will help you nail that all important centre-parting. Angular and oval face shapes can pull off the look easily but rounder faces should avoid such a harsh style.

Turn Up The Volume



A year ago we saw Fifties' style quiffs everywhere. They took a step back for a season and now they are back for SS18, but this time with added volume and height. At New York Fashion Week Men SS18 the Death to Tennis presentation featured models with hair worn high and swept back, in a look that was groomed and softly sculpted, and finished with tall quiffs. It's a very dapper look that looks better – not to mention more on trend – with a matte finish. Use a stronghold gel-wax to add the necessary hold to keep the quiff high and in place, but avoid anything with a shine or wet-look finish, so the end result remains modern, not greasy.

The New Length

Last season we saw length increasing, with longer, tousled locks spotted at various shows. This season, hair is getting even longer, going past shoulder length and heading in to Tarzan-inspired chest-length territory. N-P-Elliott's models wore hair nipple-skimming, wild and flowing, in natural looking waves that started straighter near the scalp and got curlier as the length increased. The look is one that verges on feminine, yet manages to retain a masculine toughness. If hair is already very long and you want to recreate this style, scrunch a texturizing salt spray thorough damp locks, but avoid any finishing products, to keep the look as raw, natural and rugged as possible. The styling difference between this look and the long, shaggy bedhead styles of last season is the roots – whereas last season's had body and hold, courtesy of an upside-down blow-dry and diffusion, this season's are straighter and worn flatter to the head.
