There have been a lot of great haircuts this year and we're actually probably in one of those eras right now where when we look back in 50 years there weren't too many embarassing haircuts - unlike the early 2000's haha. So we thought we'd bring you our 21 best celebrity men's haircuts of the year. Here they are..
Longer hair has started to come back in this year and Kit Harrington know's how to wear the longer hairstyle. Especially as it's not too long now until "Winter is coming", so longer style's will be the preference of many a gent! The Games of Thrones star, keeps his curly mane to around shoulder length. If you have naturally curly hair then make sure you rock it! Keep it natural to replicate this look and apply a sea salt spray to give your hair plenty of volume and texture.
2017 has been the year of the hair dye, as more and more men have started to dye their hair. One man who did it well was Gary Barlow. On top the Gary Barlow style is kept pretty long, between 4-5 inches and then has plenty of texture to create a messier effect - with an undercut. On the back & sides it's kept nice and tight, with a short grade 2 or 3 all over. If you're looking to dye your hair then make sure you follow these tips.
The UFC bantamweight champion has also had a great year, and what a fine haircut he has too. To replicate the Cody Garbrandt hairstyle, it's a hard part side parting with a zero fade and a few inches left on top. Style using a pomade to give the hair a medium-high shine.
A man who would probably get on a list for best hair every single year, but this year he's gone for a modern version of the style that first made him a "hair icon". Becks has gone for a shoulder length long hair left natural and at times has been seen sporting it in a man bun to the back of the head. For longer hair make sure you use a good conditioner regularly and use a sea salt spray to style to give plenty of texture of volume.
Another man on the list sporting a variation on the side parting is Rami Malek. Rather than going for the more common fade or short guard length on the back & sides, Rami leaves a bit of length on the sides but keeps this even and high. Going for around a 5 or 6 on the back & sides and leave around 3 inches on top. Rami also has plenty of texture through the hair to create a messier version of the short side parting.
Nick Jonas has been rocking the all over close buzz cut this year and it's been a popular haircut so far this year! This is a very low maintenance cut for those of you who don't like doing your hair every day! Nick Jonas has an even buzz all over, around a 4 or 5. For this length no styling is likely required, just get up in the morning and your hair should be all ready to go - it will require some maintenance though as it starts to grow out to keep it looking sharp. The buzz cut works very well for men with thick hair. If you're scared to go too short then ask your barber to gradually work down until you get to the right length!
Ryan Gosling is a man that always looks great on the red carpet, whether in a more edgy white suit or the traditional black tux and tie. But Ryan Gosling's timeless hairstyle is a modern throwback to the movie stars of the 40's and 50's. He has a soft quiff with a natural side parting - he keeps a tiny bit of length on the side for added texture and a medium length on top. Depending on your hair type will depend on the product for this cut, if you have finer hair like Gosling then the Regal Gentleman Matte Clay or something light so that the hair is not weighed down.
Chris Pine has had 2 classic hairstyles this year 1. the medium length slick back hairstyle and 2. the buzzcut.
There's been a lot of talk this year about Thor's new hairstyle, as he swaps his luscious blonde locks for a shorter more modern style. Chris Hemsworth is rocking a short textured look that appears to be scissor cut all over. It's a pretty even length throughout the back, sides and top, but the main part of this cut is the texture work. Make sure to ask your barber to add texture all over to give the hair a messier less structured look. To style use a small amount of clay or texture paste, you don't want to use too much product as this will ruin this look - just a small amount to add a tiny bit of hold will do!
Cillian Murphy (Tommy Shelby Peaky Blinders)
One of the most iconic TV hairstyles of the past few years is that of, Tommy Shelby and with The Peaky Blinders coming back to our screens later this year, we had to feature Cillian Murphy's haircut in this! The Tommy Shelby cut is around a number 1-2 on back and sides, short but not a zero like some of the other Peaky cuts. You want to leave plenty of length on top, with more length in the fringe to sweep the hair across. To get the leader of the Peaky Blinders hairstyle you need a product that can give texture to the hair, but also with a touch of moldability.
Tom Hardy (Taboo)
Tom Hardy appeared this year as the crazy James Keziah Delaney in Taboo, but at the same time he somehow managed to make us want his haircut! The hairstyle Tom Hardy has in Taboo is a very simple one, it's a short back and sides (length between a 0 and 1 clipper) with a little bit of length left through the top, for an almost crop/combover style. It's very important to get plenty of texture through this cut to give it the messy look, you don't want it to be too clean and structured. To style use a light pomade.
Jeff Bridges is showing that no matter your age, you can still rock a modern look. Embrace the grey! Jeff has been rocking a slick back medium length hairstyle with his silver facial fuzz. Use a sea salt spray before styling to add some volume and texture to longer hair and then apply a pomade to give a slicked back look.
A man of many looks, Zayn Malik has had plenty of different hairstyles this year. But what he has gone with at the minute is one of our favourites. It's a blonde textured crop with a 0-1 fade on the back & sides. To style use a tiny bit the Regal Gentleman Matte Clay to give the hair a messy, textured look.
Harry Styles went from the long hair he made famous down to a shorter cut for his role in Christopher Nolan movie, Dunkirk. As the year has gone on his hair has got longer through the top into this textured messy quiff. The haircut is a disconnected box layer, but to save being technical just take a long a picture of the cut! As with all longer styles your barber may not be as used to dealing with them, however a lot of the best barbers have experience in hairdressing too so are more than comfortable cutting longer styles. Use a sea salt spray before styling to add plenty of texture and volume to the style and then follow up with the Regal Gentleman Matte Clay or paste to give it a natural look. Or alternatively for a smarter more slicked look, try a pomade.
Get this haircut and you'll be dating your very own Selena Gomez in no time! The Weeknd's haircut is a shaped afro with a short back & sides blended into his beard. This look works great with a fade on the back and sides too. Make sure you use a conditioning treatment or oil to protect the curls and stop the hair from drying out.
Who the f*ck is that guy? That guy is the champ champ, Conor McGregor. The Irishman, that always looks good in a suit, very rarely has a hair out of place. Conor McGregor's hair is a hard part side parting with a zero fade on the back & sides, or a bit longer 1-2 if you don't want to go as short as Conor. Keep the top short too, around 2-3 inches with more length through the front and shorter through the back to allow for the hair to sit nicely without product. To style use a pomade with a good amount of shine.
Charlie Hunnam (King Arthur)
The Charlie Hunnam King Arthur hairstyle is a slicked back wet look medium length undercut style with a short back & sides. Ask your barber to keep the top to a medium length, with plenty of length for pushing all the way back and between 2 and 4 on the back & sides blended in. To replicate the Charlie Hunnam hairstyle try using a pomade or a wet look gel.
The Spaniard has probably overtaken Cristiano Ronaldo as the man in Madrid with the best hair! Sergio Ramos went for a haircut similar to Arthur Shelby in Peaky Blinders, with a 0 on the back & sides with a disconnected undercut on top. To style use a pomade to give the haircut the Sergio Ramos shine and slicked back look.
Justin Timberlake is another man to go for the buzz cut this year, but this is probably our favourite variation on it. The former N Sync man went with a 0-1 on back & sides with a tiny bit of length left on top to create variation. This one is great for those who don't fancy going with a shaved head all over as adds another dimension to the cut. Go for around a 4-5 on top.
Gordon Hayward recently made the big move from Utah Jazz to the Boston Celtics and back in Utah he became somewhat of a legend, for not just his basketball ability, but for his hair. The Gordon Hayward haircut is a disconnected pompadour. One side of the head has a hard disconnect and transitions into a blend on the opposite side of the head with a razored hard part line. The ideal length for this cut is 3-5 inches in the fringe area, getting shorter towards the back of the head. The sides were done as a medium fade, number 1-2. To style use a pomade with a medium-high shine.
Zac Efron (Baywatch)
Zac Efron has had some great hairstyles since his days as Troy Bolton in High School Musical, but we're big fans of his haircut in Baywatch this summer. The Zac Efron haircut is given a cool beach effect to suit the movie - it's an undercut left long on top with a short back & sides. If your hair is thick or hard to style then also ask your barber to add some texture to the hair. This should help to give it a messier, wavy look like in the movie! Use a sea salt spray as a pre-styler to give your hair the full beach look.
