Medium- To Long-length
Given menswear’s current infatuation with two of history’s shaggiest-haired decades – that’s the 1970s and the 1990s, FYI – it’s little wonder longer hair’s fast becoming one of the key hair trends to watch.
“For 2016, hair is definitely getting longer,” says Harrigan. “You only have to look at a glossy men’s magazine and the recent LCM shows to see that the razor fade is done. Sure, we’re seeing the short back and sides, but the trend is moving to a longer choppy crop.” And plenty of men are tipping their cap to Thor-era Chris Hemsworth and growing it even longer.
Admittedly, it’s not a look for everyone. And we’re not just talking taste: you’ll need hair that skews slightly finer for a good crack at this look. Grow it out over time, braving those awkward in-between stages, and once you’ve got a good length, book some time in the barber’s chair to see if adding layers could optimise your style’s shape.
As for styling, less is more. Try a little texturising salt spray if you want to add some tousled structure but, generally, this longer length hair looks its best when you refrain from fussing too much.
