The Best Men’s Hairstyle Trends From NYFW:M Spring 2017 Runways
Natural Curls Are Back in a Big Way
Naturally curly hair is once again in the beauty and fashion spotlight. Thumb through the pages of any magazine and you’ll see many styles of natural curls and afros from sophisticated to sweet to edgy. At men’s fashion week in New York, the trend was out front and visible at almost every show. Michael Lockley and Brandon Bailey who both walked in the John Varvatos fashion show sported natural, cool dude fro’s that complemented the musician vibe of the clothes. Fashion and hair always dictate each other, and right now the fashion pendulum has swung back to the ’70s, denim with more and more texture.
Long Romantic Waves
Diversity is big in menswear right now and was visible on all the major runways from New York to Paris. Designers showcased fresh faced models who were unique to one another. There were plenty of bi-racial models with long locks, black models with braids, blonde models with curly hair. It’s all about showcasing the customer and he’s from every single background and culture.
We witnessed many stylists and many different looks, with a heavy emphasis on individuality, but nonetheless some trends emerged. Long hair lengths emulating the beach lifestyle, but with more versatile cuts that work with longer or shorter hair were popular. As volume and texture take on a new importance, stylists played up these attributes to suit the person first and the style second.

The fringe has been spotted on some of the most fashionable men, from New York to Paris, in addition to being seen on the models backstage at many of the top shows.
