man bun

It may not be new, but I have a hunch the man bun is coming back bigger than ever. With so much gender-bending and androgyny already seen on this year’s runway, the man bun is bound to evolve and grow, going from a trend to a staple. The style reinforces the masculinity of long hair for men, and paired with a little or a lot of scruff and a devil-may-care attitude, it’s sure to dominate 2015. So gentlemen, if you have the length but lack direction, click through to style notes for some inspiration. Just don’t forget the beard. –– Michelle Rotbart

I have a lot of male friends and they all have curly hair. I’d say it’s weird, but I happen to love men with curly hair, so it’s not really an accident. Curls on a guy are sexy, they give his hair quirkiness, body, and shape, which is great because most men don’t spend a lot of time styling. But in my social circle, I’ve also seen how terrible curls on guys can look with the wrong cut. An unsuitable shape can look fuzzy, chunky, or feminine. Men need loose texture, clean lines and tailored edges to keep their locks under control. Read on to learn more about giving curls a masculine cut. –– Laura Martin

The current men’s cuts combine classic shapes with unstructured edges and roughed-up finishes for looks that are both rugged and polished. Unlike the prohibition-era styles that have been popular for the last few seasons, the current cuts have a lived-in look, with sides that are tapered but loosely constructed. Styling is matte and slightly rumpled instead of sleek and wet for a casual, natural feeling. Read the style notes for steps on updating your look for the season. –– Laura Martin

The term fade is usually associated with barbershop classics like the flat-top and the high-and-tight, but this season, fading takes on new dimensions. Tightly cropped edges blend seamlessly into length at sides and top, combining long deconstructed interiors with strictly defined outlines. The look is both rugged and refined, manly and dapper. Read on for steps to achieving the masculine, modern shape. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
