Men’s Hair Ideas & Trends

Gents’ Hair Trends at Ubuntu Hair Salon, Kidlington, Oxford

Not sure which gents’ hairstyle is right for you?  Been stuck in a rut wearing the same men’s hairstyle for years?  Now is a great time to think about reinventing your style as we bring you the top five fashion-forward hairstyles for men for 2016.

1. The Buzz Cut

Caeser Buzz Cut 2

The Buzz Cut is usually very short or shaved at the sides, with longer hair on top swept forward.

Remember Justin Bieber’s early version which sparked a generation of young men wearing hair swept over their faces?  This is a cooler update on that style and do not worry – it will not be as long as in those early Justin Bieber days.

The short length makes it easy to maintain and this style looks great when you work in a little texture for a messy, understated look.


2. The Skin Fade

The PompadourA Skin Fade is where your stylist part shaves and part cuts your hair at the sides so that it is shorter at the nape of the neck and becomes gradually longer, fading into the longer hair on top.

Ask your stylist for a  #2 or #3 on the sides and to fade your hair from there upwards.

For a stylist twist, keep your hair much longer on top.  It’s up to you how high you wear your hair on top – it could be a cool quiff, a texturised messy spiked style or a very high pompadour style!


3. The Disconnected Undercut

Disconnected UndercutAsk for a Disconnected Undercut and your stylist will cut or shave your hair evenly so it is the same length around the sides.

The disconnect comes between the shaved sides and the length on top.  You will see a noticeable difference or contrast between the sides and top.

This differs to the fade, mentioned in the style above.  With the fade, the hair graduates from short up to longer so there is less contrast between the length on the top of the hair and the sides.

If you are in doubt as to which style will suit you, talk to your stylist at Ubuntu Salon where we can help you work out the perfect style for you.

4. Facial Hair / Beards

Slick Back and Beard


OK so this is less of a hairstyle and more about facial hair but we have to report that beards are likely to remain a firm favourite with gents for spring 2016.

If you fancy a change, now is the time to start growing that facial hair! Forget goatees and opt for a full-on beard but make sure you keep it looking neat and tidy with regular visits to Ubuntu Salon.  No-one likes a straggly beard!

Looking for a cool hairstyle to match your bearded look?  Wear your hair a little longer, with a side parting and slick it back with some gel, wax or pomade.

5. Curly Hairstyles For Gents


It’s time to embrace your natural curls fellas!  Get a great hair cut and flaunt some super sexy waves.

We can give you a masculine hair cut by adding layers, an undercut or skin fade.

When it comes to styling curly hair, our stylists can show you the right hair products and give you some great styling tips to keep your mane under control.

There are a number of ways you can style your curls from subtle, gentle waves to tight curls.  Be bold with your curly hair!
