The New Year is a time for out with the old, in with the new – and that means it may be time to rethink your hairstyle. While there’s nothing wrong with keeping it classic, 2019 will see a flood of new hairstyle trends for men, and that makes for a perfect opportunity to try on a new look. At 18|8 Austin, we’re proud to help men of all ages and styles throughout the Austin, TX achieve their perfect look through world-class haircuts and grooming treatments, so here are our recommendations on 3 rising men’s hairstyle trends to try in 2019.
Ok, first we’ll start with a classic. The Pompadour, along with every other variation of a slick back, tapered haircut, is a timeless hairstyle that simply never seems to go out of style. Pompadours and undercuts of all shapes and sizes have been in style since at least the dawn of this decade, and they show no signs of going anywhere. Whether you choose a full volume, high pomp with a skin fade or a more reserved taper, you can’t go wrong with this classic cut.
The French Crop is an edgy, rough-around-the-edges cut that hasn’t been popular in recent memory, but 2019 may change that. It’s most recognizable feature is ultra-short bangs that can be feathered or chopped straight across, and may cover just the forehead or extend all the way around the head. The French Crop is well-complemented by fades of any length, and while it’s not for everyone, it’s a distinctive look that’s sure to turn heads if you can pull it off.
Ever since Neymar Jr. and Pogba rocked clipper designs at the 2018 Russia World Cup, this hairstyle ornamentation has been on the fast-track to widespread popularity. The best part about this style is that it works with just about any cut: so long as you have some kind of fade, you can have your barber create any clipper design your heart desires. So for 2019, why not try something a little more out there and add a clipper design to your haircut?
