As we segue into spring, it’s not just your wardrobe that requires a refresh. Your hair deserves an upgrade, too, and is arguably a more impactful way to switch up your look. But which are the key hair trends for men this season? Take a look at a few of the best, easy-to-achieve options below.
Three spring hairstyles

Call it a man bun, a mun, a topknot, whatever – if you’ve got hair (and lots of it), scrape it into an artfully dishevelled mess at the back and you’ll be hitting all the right style notes for spring. It’s not so much about the precision undercut and tightly wound topknot this season, so grow your style out and hang it in a loose bun, held together with sea salt spray and a rubber band. So bohemian, bro.
The ubiquitous pompadour hairstyle is going nowhere. It conquered noggins across the world in 2014 and will continue to do so as we head into summer 2015. The key difference this year, however, is that the skin fade at the back and sides is more extreme than ever, which helps make the top section look more exploded and cartoonish. Wear yours with plenty of hairspray to achieve stratospheric levels of quiff height.
The high and tight
The buzzcut has undergone something of a revival this month, thanks to a certain Mr Ryan Reynolds. And keeping your style mega short on the sides and tightly cropped on the top, like his, makes for a cool, low-maintenance look when the weather warms up. Whether you’ve got a beard or are clean-shaven, the high and tight style is super sharp, and is a great look for any man with a slim face and strong features.
