The Most Popular Men’s Hairstyles In Westchester
Local stylists tell us the cuts guys are asking for.
BY CARLOS VILLAMAYOR
If you’re like a lot of men, you may be wearing the same hairstyle you were wearing a decade ago. It’s easy, after all, and it looks fine—so why fix what isn’t broken? The thing is, your hair says as much about your style, if not more, than your choice of shirts, ties, and shoes. So what better time to spruce up your look than spring? We asked some Westchester salons for the most popular men’s hairstyles this season, and received the following 13 trending styles for men.
Lindsey Jennex, master stylist at The Beauty Box in Rye, says the man bun has become very popular in the last couple of years.
“Some are cleaner than others in the sense that the man bun can look more professional and finished, while others have a more ‘surfer’ or bohemian. This tends to be a large growing trend among men in 20s or in the hipster crowd,” Jennex says. “This look requires very little maintenance. Most likely, there was little to no product used in this photo. If any product is used, I would say maybe a gel similar to Bumble and bumble Gel.”
“For spring, short on the sides with length on top is very clever and also easy to manage for different occasions,” says Flavio Oliveira, owner of Mode A Salon in Bronxville.
“During the day and at work, those who like a wet look on the sides can use gel, or wear your hair dry and comb it all the way to the back, creating a serious look for the office. At night or for the weekend, simply spike it up,” he advises.
“This is the new look for your lived-in haircuts. Let your barber or stylist give a cut that looks like it’s a few weeks old,” says Michele Lisa Milazzo, owner of Michele Lisa Salon in Cortlandt Manor.
Blended Taper Cut
This style starts from zero at the bottom and is blended into a long top.
“The top is very flexible,” says Peter Palushi, owner of the Gentleman’s Barber Spa in White Plains. “It can be styled straight back, pompadour, or to the side”
High Fade Pompadour
“This is a look where the sides are typically faded from shortest at the hairline, gradually getting longer toward the top, and the hair on top is left long and usually slicked back,” Jennex says.
Side Part Coif
“A high fade meets undercut with a true off-to-the-side Coif,” says Milazzo.
“This look is super in right now with men. It is easy to maintain and very versatile as well,” says Oliveira. “To style it, you can use pomade, and I recommend Original Pomade by Oribe. It helps to create an uncomplicated style without making your hair heavy, and also contains UV protection.”
Taper Back with Classic Side Part
“I find that men are going more for the shorter cuts than keeping their hair long,” Palushi says.
Hard Part and High Fade
This style features faded sides with length on top, “but it also shows a very hard part in the hair,” says Jennex. “This is a retro look that most men in the 1950s wore. It created a very polished and professional look.”
“Short everywhere; men love it and always ask for it. Doesn’t change and keeps it simple. Sometimes, less is more,” says Oliveira. “For those who like short hair, it’s best to have a haircut every four weeks to maintain it, and use a good shampoo to help the hair grow healthy and shiny. My recommendation is Signature Shampoo from Oribe, a daily shampoo with UV protection.”
Wash and Go
This look is “easy to keep,” according to Palushi.
2015 Meets 2030
“Euro edge and mucho texture, this cut is for those who want that sculpted and statement trending look,” Milazzo remarks.
Medium Length Texturized Haircut
A more common look, this style features shorter sides and some length on top with a clean hairline, according to Jennex. “This look is acceptable in professional environments and can also be styled to be more edgy and fun,” she says.
