Top 10 trending hairstyles for Indian men in 2018

Here are the top 10 trending hairstyles which you can try in 2018. We have compiled this list based on popular feedback from our social media handles, especially Instagram.

2017 was one of the best years as far as hairstyling is concerned and we felt that there was more curiosity surrounding some of the hairstyles we endorsed, quirky ones included. People have begun to experiment and that’s a good sign.

Celebrity association played a huge role in some of these hairstyles trending in the first two months of 2018. However, for the most part, men’s hairstyle in 2018 will be all about free-flowing nature.

A guide to Indian men’s hairstyles and how to get them!

Natural and long- Ranveer Singh

Long and unkempt natural hair was trending in the first months of 2018. Ranveer Singh popularly sported it as Alauddin Khilji for the controversial movie ‘Padmaavat’ but even before that, Jason Mamoa was seen with it for the role of Aquaman.

Sadly, the hairstyle is out of reach for most Indian men. For the ones who have long hair though, try growing it out for a few months with occasional nips and tucks from your stylist.

Slick-back medium hairstyle- Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan is one of the few actors who look dapper in this medium-length, slicked back hairstyle. This style never goes out of vogue and is perfect for any formal occasion.

Men with a receding hairline can pull this look to perfection but then again, it was probably the same hairstyle that caused the condition to escalate in the first place. So exercise caution.
