The most popular haircuts for men include some well-known styles from last year, as well as some newcomers. The classic pompadour leads the list in most effective and popular haircuts for men this year. Coming in closely behind are slicked back hair, side parting, the undercut, and the taper fade. Let’s also not forget the importance of the beard in adding to a signature men’s hair style this year.
Though the pompadour originated as the dominant hair style in 18th century Europe, Elvis and James Dean gave it the pop over the top for men’s hair when they made the classic pompadour their signature style in the 1950’s. Today, male celebrities are rocking the pompadour hair style again, and they include Justin Timberlake, Johnny Depp, Bruno Mars, Adam Lambert, David Beckham, and Robin Thicke. The pompadour influence is also an important ingredient in other men’s hair styles such as side parting and the undercut.
