Grooming Trends From The Runway To Try This Fall

At men’s collections, the most popular hairstyles were un-fussy and easy to achieve

Not a style for shy and retiring types, brightly coloured hair has been a popular choice on the runways, with the likes of Maison Margiela, Versace, Xander Zhou, and Matthew Miller all embracing the trend. Spiky, androgynous, and verging on dishevelled, the general thinking behind this look is the more punk, the better. It’s the kind of look that seems as though it could be achieved sans stylist. But beware: there is a fine line between Prodigy star Keith Flint-esque effortless anarchic cool and a geeky teenage Sonic The Hedgehog lookalike. Striking a balance isn’t as easy as it may seem and a qualified barber is very much advised.

Rebirth of Slick

The anti-grooming movement may be booming at the moment, but one of the last bastions of classic hair styling, the slicked-back look, is still hanging on. Ubiquitous on the runways, as well as at Paul Smith, Dior Homme, Alexander McQueen, and Les Hommes. This season’s variant is longer in the back and sides than the previously popular fade option. Go with wet-look gel for a darker, grungier look, or pick a mousse to add volume if needed.

Mr Moustache

The beard trend had a good run but, for fall, moustaches are most certainly having a moment. Seen on runways, including at Louis Vuitton and Qasimi, the modern moustachioed man is clean-shaven apart from his top lip, which can come adorned with anything from a thin continental number to a full-on handlebar. A moustache is ideal for those with an angular, chiselled jawline; anyone with a fuller, more rounded face would be wise to steer clear.

Buzz Cut

The world of tight grooming takes a back seat this season as simple, low-maintenance, low-effort styles come to the fore. And when it comes to low effort, it’s hard to beat a good old-fashioned army-style buzz cut. As demonstrated by Issey Miyake, Raf Simons, and Hermès, getting it all shorn off can deliver a simple yet striking look. That’s not to say the style is without potential pitfalls, though. Edges should receive the attention of a cutthroat razor for clean, straight lines, some good-quality scalp-care product wouldn’t go amiss, and those with bumpy or odd-shaped heads need not apply.
