Men with short fringes are likely to be seen more often in the future, as the short haircut that Julius Caesar wore over 2000 years ago is making a comeback with the French Crop. To achieve this look, keep the sides and the nape of the neck short, the hair on top a little longer and the fringe precisely cut. This also lets you hide your receding hairline if you have one. The French Crop can be worn by anyone because the length of the hair can be adapted to the shape of your head – unless you have curls. Styling is also simple. Put a little matt wax in your hands and style to the front.
The centre parting, a relic of the 1990s, is making a comeback this year – but not in as strict a way as those used by classic boy bands. Undone is the keyword here. It should look as if you hadn’t styled it at all. Your hair length is therefore almost irrelevant. Medium, long or very long – it doesn’t matter but volume is important. Have your hair cut in a slightly layered style by a hairdresser. For styling, it’s best to use creamy hair wax, which you can use to highlight individual strands. This will prevent your hair from looking like a bowl cut.
The same applies to the side parting in 2021: make it look undone! In other words, make it look casual as if you haven’t made any particular effort. Naturalness is what’s required, preferably with individual strands falling into your face. Blow-dry your hair back with a flat brush, part it and fix individual strands with a little matt gel. If you have thin hair, use Seasalt Spray to give it more hold and texture.
Beard Trends 2021
In 2021, the moustache continues to triumph. Its heyday was in the 1970s and early 1980s. It then disappeared from the scene for a long time, but now it’s back. A moustache can change your style dramatically, and it’s definitely a sign of self-confidence! After just a few weeks of growing it out, the hair above your lip should be long and thick enough to pass for a moustache. Following this, if not before, you should shave off the rest of your beard. How you style your moustache, whether pencil or walrus, is up to you!
3-day Beard and 6-day Beard
Of course, the perennial favourite beard styles always work. If you go for the 3-day beard, you should make sure that the beard hairs are no longer than 1-2 millimeters (with the 6-day beard approx. 5-7 millimeters), so trim them regularly! Both beards particularly suit men with elongated and round faces because they can elegantly balance out hard contours. The 3-day beard is very simple and requires almost no care, but the 6-day beard should be treated with a few drops of beard oil so that it doesn’t look too wild and shaggy.
If you thought that the hipster era of lumberjack shirts and beards was over, you were wrong because the full beard, at any rate, is here to stay in 2021! The difference from a few years ago, however, is that the beard needs to look well-groomed! Therefore, regularly trim (or have trimmed) the contours and look after it with beard shampoo, beard oil or beard balm. Remember to only let it grow when it is full and thick, and there are no bald spots!
