Top 3 Summer Hairstyles

Summer is the perfect time for a cut – the last thing you want is to be fussing about with your hair when its hot. We recommend to keep it away from your face, as a sweaty overgrown mop is never a good look. From scissor-happy cuts to a subtle trim, here are some of our top men’s summer hairstyles to consider this season…

Slicked Back 

This hairstyle was popular in winter, spring and still big during the summer. It’s perfect for keeping your hair out of your face on a hot day and will leave you looking very sharp and stylish. Clean in appearance, it looks especially great on someone who prefers a very simplistic and formal style. The best way to achieve this look is to invest in a really good pomade – which is a greasy wax, giving you the perfect hold.


Whether you’re going for a curly, wavy or straight quiff this is an effortless hairstyle that will keep you looking cool. It’s perfect for someone with thick hair giving you a much more laidback yet stylish look. Although be sure to keep the sides shorter to really emphasis the quiff – as the height matters! When styling your hair make sure you use a good wax to achieve a dry matte look. Inspired by the 1950s (think Elvis, king of the quiff), blogger @joeylondonstyle dons a suitably retro look and pairs his ‘do with a classic 2-piece suit.


Looking for a really low maintenance and easy hairstyle? Think the fade. It requires barely any styling and you won’t need to invest in any products, although we do recommend talking to your barber first as the full fade might not suit certain face shapes. If you are looking for a drastic change (or just want something more practical for the warmer weather), take notes from @styleandstylus with his clean super-short fade.
