Men’s 2012 Hair trends

Men’s hairstyles aren’t like women’s. Women’s hair trends are short-lived, often lasting no more than a year. On the other hand, men’s hairstyle trends evolve slowly – and that’s the key to men’s hair trends in 2012. Each style might be popular in 2010 or 2011. In 2012, they have simply evolved slightly from 2010 and 2011.

I will introduce some men’s 2012 hairstyles

Slicked back undercut

This hair cut sees the revival of the slicked back undercut influenced by the styles of the early 20th Century. It is my favorite style, but i can’t cut this style because my hair is curly. Furthermore, it doesn’t fit my face shape. I tried this style many times, but the result is horrible. I really like this style on other men. It is so classical and cool.

Good for: straight hair & hair that can be straightened

Brit-rock indie hairstyle

Inspired by many a British indie band (and a hell of a lot of Burberry catwalks in between), 2012′s Brit-rock indie hairstyle oozes kicked back and relaxed. It has only one rule: sweep the hair forwards.This hair style is also good, and this style is the best for me.

Good for: straight hair, wavy hair, curly hair that can be relaxed

Rockabilly hairstyle

It might have been on trend for 2 years already, but that hasn’t stopped this mid-20th Century rock hairstyle from featuring amongst 2012′s men’s haircut trends. More attitude infused than the quiff hairstyle it gave rise to, the rockabilly hairstyle might be one of 2012′s more extreme men’s hairstyles, but it’s also one of the few that’s suited to most hair types. Actually this style only fit western people. In Asia, especially in Japan, this hairstyle is typically for motorcycle gangs.

Men’s quiff

The last time I saw the quiff popular as a men’s hairstyle trend it was infused with rock overtones. With the indie haircut dominating the music-orientated hairstyles, the quiff becomes something altogether more refined in 2012. This style is really cool, but this style also doesn’t suit all Asians unless they have more of a western facial type. I have tried this style when back in Taiwan. The result is what you currently can see as my hair style.

Actually, i almost tried all hairstyles that I introduced. However, only one is good for me. Hairstyle is really important, especially for men. The reason is that men can only change their appearance by changing their hairstyle. Being trendy is important, but you should consider your  face shape, style, and personality when considering a hairstyle. If you are blind to fashion, the result can be disastrous!

Don’t be this!!
