Modern Men’s Hairstyles with a Retro Twist

Many men underestimate the variety of hairstyling options available to them.  This may be due to the longevity of men’s hairstyles, with so many cuts being considered classic.  But visits to the salon aren’t just for the girls!  The modern man in Boulder, Colorado should look polished, but with an individual flare.  One way to accomplish this is by updating your hairstyle with a retro twist.

A few hairstyles that are particularly on trend right now are modern takes on the undercut, the pompadour, and the quiff.  All three involve a cut that is longer on the top and shorter on the sides.

The undercut, harking back to 1920′s-30′s style, is a great option that doesn’t involve fading or blending the hair from the sides and back of the head to the top.  The top is long, and slicked back or styled.

The men’s pompadour is reminiscent of the iconic rock’n'roll styles of the 1950′s and ’60s (think Elvis).  The sides are worn a little longer than with the undercut, and blend into the top.  The top is long, and styled with lots of volume.

The quiff is a little more edgy, and works great with curly or wavy hair.  However, it is pretty high maintenance, and will require frequent trips to the salon.  On the upside, this look will definitely exude confidence.
