Styling is the new way of life

Whoever said styling was only meant for women surely has no idea about fashion! Men's hairstyle in 2017 is setting stages on fire with exclusive, macho looks that are unique, unconventional and aggressively male.

The Elvis pompadour

If you thought the pompadour was an outrageous thought only suitable for office 'dress as you like parties', you are definitely mistaken. Hair-raisingly 'in' this style has swooned men off their feet in most parts of the western world. The slicked back pompadour is a prominent style that looks good on men of all nationalities.

The good boy image

It's ok, if you never got the chance to mingle with the Ivy League boys. Here's your chance to look like them by sporting their most preferred hairstyle.

A sweet, clean-cut style, it will definitely remind you of your bygone school days. With a side parted top and slicked down sides it is one of the most polished vintage looks available from the beginning of time. No wonder all the handsome hunk actors of the '50s and '60s sported this look!

Final word of watchfulness: This look may be the only one, preferred by both your mum and that special lady friend of yours!

Top knot for men

If you had marginalised man buns and top knots for the hard rock musicians and disregarded it for yourself, you are definitely missing out on lot of recognition and popularity. In some variations of the hairstyling the sides are slightly cut short but that's only based on preference. As long as you have some hair on the top of your head that can be tied in a knot, you are free to try this cool hairstyle.

Go Afro

Always liked the hipster 'Coolio' while you were growing up? Well here's your chance to finally look like him. However, you might need to go to a salon to perfect this style. The cornrow braids are suitable for people with long hair, especially during summer. If you are someone who has cropped hair at the moment; best of luck trying out this look next year. Stop cutting your hair pronto!

Caesar cut

If the very name puts you off and you want to look nothing like the ancient ruler then please go online and 'Google' away to find out the usefulness of this hairstyle. Especially for men with sparse patches of bald hair and a large forehead, this hairstyle effectively covers up most of the flaws and premature balding.

The curly crown

Boys with curly hair don't have much choice to play with. They have three choices, either to keep their hair really long, cut them really short, or go for a tapered haircut with elongated hair on top.

In 2017, the third hairstyle is considered the most preferred, cool and trendy. Irrespective of your preference, to pull off any hairstyle, one must enjoy the new look and look the part.

So again, if anyone ever told you that hairstyling was only for females, please show them the door or maybe give a lesson on styling.
