While a large focus is always on women’s hair trends, there is growing attention on men’s hairstyles. With more options and a desire to create greater versatility for men, men’s grooming, fashion and hairstyles are growing in a big way. Getting through the pandemic has been tough, but 2021 became a year of finally being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. With stores and businesses opening up, people started to pay more attention to their grooming and outward appearance.

For men, there has been a stable trend in pompadours. Shaved on the sides and longer on top, the pompadour is a flattering, stylish and versatile men’s haircut. For a while the trend was shaved on the sides with curly hair on top. This look was popularized by basketball players and has taken storm in the mainstream public. But this trend is cooling down so what’s new?

The pompadour is becoming more of a demi pompadour. While the hair is still longer on top, it is half as long. This is a more conservative, classic and easy to manage type of haircut that can easily be worn by any man. Nick Jonas is representing the demi pompadour nicely. In 2022, the demi pompadour will more popular than the longer hair pompadours we’ve been seeing in the past. The longer hair on top can achieve greater volume by using a razor to texturize the hair.

Along the same lines, the classic crew cut continues to be popular and will remain popular throughout 2022. Like the bob, this hairstyle never goes out of style. Even shorter on the top, this is a very manageable hairstyle. Very little maintenance is needed on a daily basis. However, regular haircuts are required to keep it looking sharp and clean. In these haircuts, it’s important to clean up necklines and sideburns for final finishes with a razor.

2022 will also feature some longer styles with parts. With longer hair on top reaching the ears, the hair can be worn straight with a center part or tousled to the side. Hair on the sides is somewhat short but not tight to the head. This is a more romantic look. It’s sexy yet still masculine. Finneas and Sebastian Stan are popularizing this hairstyle in a big way.

Moving into 2022, men’s hair will remain on the shorter side. For the most part, men still like styles that are simple, easy to maintain yet look stylish. Tight fades will be popular for a long time but the trend of some longer hairstyles will be interesting watch. With longer hair comes more unique styles and more versatility. Only time will tell what will come to fruition.
