Men's Hairstyle 2012

Short back and sides

Return of the undercut.  It was only a few short years ago that it would have been considered a haircut solely for the young and the daring. Thanks to the popularity of a select TV show and the return of an interest in all things 1920s, the undercut returns to its original, classic roots.

Accessory trends 2012

Gladstone bag

The Gladstone bag on the runway
A bag with the potential to be minimalist, classic and statement-worthy, all at once, is by default considered a part of Celine’s equally sharp uniform. In their Fall 2011 runway show, models marched with the Gladstone tucked under their arm. The original-doctor’s-bag-shape was maintained; small handles, a sturdy rectangular base and a magnetic-centre with the trademark floppy feature. As we progress into the New Year, Celine’s latest offering for spring 2012 promises a modified version of the Gladstone. It’s got corporate sophistication with hints of perky colours, giving the trend another opportunity for an appraisal.

On the other hand, Louis Vuitton presented an oversized version of the Gladston in their theatrical S/S 2012 show in Paris. The brand is known for making the most distinctive luggage carriers, however for this one, they steered clear from using the stereotypical LV fabrics and instead designed a cleaner and crisper variety. To compliment the candy-hued clothes, all the Gladstone bags in Louis Vuitton’s spring 2012 show were in muted shades of sorbet yellow, grey and moon white.

Men’s soft fringe hairstyle

While the above picture serves as a do and a don’t, the following serves solely as a don’t for the hairstyle as it’s evolved. Commit this to memory: the men’s fringe shouldn’t be worn with a wet finish in 2011 / 2012. A healthy shine is okay, wet is not.

2012 men’s key hair cuts & hairstyles

Men’s indie hairstyle

                          Long all over, this is an interpretation of the indie hair cut for straight hair.

The perfect interpretation of an indie hairstyle for men with curly hair, the short sides prevent the hair cut from making the head look large.

This interpretation is short on the sides and more clean cut. It’s likely that this would be cut with scissors over a comb, but it wouldn’t be uncommon for your hair dresser to use clippers. They real key to this interpretation of the style is that the length throughout the top is blended into the shorter sides. In styling it, the fringe can be treated as a separate part: it can be left longer or cut differently, preferably sliced to give it more texture and to prevent it from being too heavy and thus sitting flat. Like the interpretation above, this is another great cut if you’ve got thick hair that is likely to sit up and make your head look large.

This mopped interpretation of the hairstyle is one you might consider a modern update on the Beatles. It features a swept fringe with length kept on sides and works best for guys with straight hair. This style can be cut quite uniformed or cut square on the sides to heighten the sense of masculinity. Given it’s for straight hair you need to have irregular lengths throughout to create texture and take out weight, without that it will be too blunt. Your hairdresser will be able to slice or deep-point cut to create the irregular lengths.
