Straight Hairstyles- Author: - Comments are closed
There are many great straight hairstyles for men which will catch the imagination and grow into magnificence this year. If you like your hair straight with more than a hint of short back and sides this year then how about something from the 60s with a combination of 20s slick to help you along?
With the huge success of Mad Men, men are indeed going mad for the style of Don Draper and those slick hairstyles are facing resurgence and more men than ever before are exploring what it is to be slick.
Indeed, there won’t be any shortage soon of slick straight hairstyles in 2012 that will be requiring the use of clippers with the thinning of hair around the sides. This look is straight out of 1920s retro with slicked back hair complementing a really short clipped back and sides for that perfect ‘Road to Perdition’ look. But it’s not all 1920s and 1930s this year, with men experimenting with this short back and sides look with length on top either gelled or left alone. This look makes for a great undercut style with plenty of room for experimentation in there for good measure.
Other great Straight hairstyles for men include the slicked back cut with a side parting that goes for the more refined look than its undercut counterpart. It is a real classic look revived and really does not require that much gel products to achieve the slick look that it gets.
Now this really is a look that owes somewhat to Don Draper and his friends and really came back onto the scene in ‘09 and ‘10 with many different celebrities picking up on it. Where the short side parting look was once the domain of the older generation who liked a bit of style, the slicked side parting has been adopted by the younger generation who have taken it on as their own and adapted it to their needs and wants.
In 2012 the slicked side parting will be seen more and more, both worn down the street or in the office where it looks fantastic with a suit. It is ideal for those men who have hair that is relatively straight and which sit nice and flat on a head and tend to behave whilst complementing nicely, the slick shape of the hairstyle.
These two different Straight hairstyles for men are the cuts for men who like their hair a little straighter than the rest but are willing to experiment with something different for this year.
