Top Hair Styles for Men in 2014

If you have male pattern baldness and feel in need of an image revamp, there are some top looks for men which have hit the catwalks this year. Even if you have the first signs of male hair loss, there are some fantastic new styles that will make you look cutting edge and will see you turning heads in 2014.

While some men appear to take male pattern baldness in their stride, others may feel a loss of confidence and self-esteem. However, with more than 50 per cent of men affected by this by the time they reach the age of 50, you may feel relieved to know that you are not alone. Among the men with hair loss are some of the biggest heart throbs and celebrities, including actor Bruce Willis, and singers Sting and Robbie Williams. And, it hasn’t skipped royalty either, as Prince William has a receding hairline and still catches the eyes of the females!

Although many men brush off their baldness in public, most don’t feel so confident about it on the inside. One 42-year-old man, who lives near London, was first affected by male pattern baldness in his 30’s and has now lost half of his hair.

He said: “I knew that I might end up with a receding hair line as this runs in the family as my dad has male hair loss. You feel resigned to it in a way but it does affect your self esteem - you just pretend that it doesn’t.”

It is always advisable to visit the experts at the first signs of male pattern baldness, as the earlier it is tackled, the better the results you will receive from your treatment. This is exactly what singer Robbie Williams, who revealed he got a hair transplant before people spotted his receding hairline.

Meanwhile, if you are looking to address a receding hairline, London Centre of Trichology predicts this year’s top looks, that are suitable for men with hair loss.

Great Looks for Men in 2014

The Undercut – Shaved Sides and Long on Top – This is a brave and bold look for men – and women – as it combines length on top, with super short close cut sides. It was a huge hit last year and the trend is set to continue, and for men, it has the added bonus of helping to disguise a receding hairline. If you want to take the plunge, this hair style suits most face shapes, so you are bound to pull of this look. Just talk it over with your stylist to see what they think.

If you decide to go for the undercut, you will be following in the footsteps of the rich and famous. Some of the celebrities that have been seen sporting this look include actor Jude Law and footballer David Beckham. You can gel the longer section of the hair and comb it back, or to the side.

A slight variant of this style is to leave your hair longer at the sides than the undercut, but have it slightly shorter on top. Although this look requires maintenance, the results are worth the effort, as it is set to be a top trend for this year. Celebrities sporting this style includes singer Justin Bieber.

Keeping Your Hair Long - Keeping your hair long is very low maintenance, but if you do want this look, it’s best to check with your boss first to see if this style is suitable for work!

You can either keep your hair long and natural, just like Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean (or actor Matthew McConaughey), or if you have enough length, you can tie it up.  Tying it up can draw attention away from a receding hair line and disguise any bald patches at the back. Whether you suit a longer style really depends on the condition of the hair and your face shape.

Sweeping the Hair Forwards – This is another hair style that has rocked the catwalks this year and will keep you at the forefront of fashion in 2013. It is a relaxed, low maintenance style that is best suited for straight hair, but it can work for wavy and curly hair too.

You will often see this look sported by band members on the British music scene, such as The Arctic Monkeys and The Kooks.
