2019 is the year of the gray hair. From the shorts to the longest, we see the best cuts and nuances for men and boys.
Movie superstar George Clooney has, without doubt, one of the most sophisticated looks in Hollywood. A grey man hair look which only seems to get better as he ages. The unanimous reason for his enduring appeal is the silver fox effect of Clooney’s graying hair. Welcome to gray mania.
2019 is the year of the graying hair. It gives the Clooney effect to men of all ages. That’s right, it doesn’t matter how old you are, as long as you have some salt and pepper effect to your hair, and with the right haircut, you will set for some additional attention in your daily life.
Short gray hair
The current fashionable trend of the high shade and the short side tuft works very well with the silver hair as it creates a pleasant contrast with the dark beard and eye color. Gray is ideal for short haircuts.
If you are over 50 and lucky enough to have a thick silver foliage, the classic short cut faded to the sides with a messy lock of hair can take years off your looks.
If you are the type who prefers the Michael Douglas look in the film the American President, fear not, the gray tone on the classic style, line and tuft with wave, is a winner. Note, this style needs to be managed with the comb and appropriate hair products.
The short wavy hair with some side nuance helps create a youthful look, but it’s important to balance with a bit of shabby-style beard which makes the difference.
For a medium length cut, it’s important to manage the hair with a little modeling wax or a styling spray.
Just arrange the tuft backwards and create a deliberate unkempt look.
If you have thin or fine hair or if your age is 50 or over, coiling of hair begins. So it’s probably best to opt for a very short cut at the sides for a cleaner look.
If you have fine or sparse hair, it’s not a bad idea to keep it clean with a side line and the shade with long side burns. This gives a fresh and tidy look, just like the talented 64-yr old Massimo Ghini.
The hipster hair style is also good for mature men, as portrayed by Instagram’s symbol of masculine elegance, the 58 year old Nick Wooster. The important thing is that the hair shaves have to be well kept.
Even the unkempt and disheveled looks of the likes of billionaire Bill Gates or soccer superstar Roberto Baggio works well now that they have the natural gray in their hair.
Gray hair man cuts long and medium long
For a middle-aged man, long hair can add a special charm, especially with a trendy cut like the Pompadour combed to the side.
Think of Richard Gere with the long silver hair behind the nape.
Even though long hair may not be the easiest to handle, one can always wear it deliberately scruffy like the super model Aiden Brady.
And for those who do not want to part with their long hair, just make sure to use the necessary styling spray products for a tidy foliage.
Gray hair boys: styles and trends
While gray hair is common for the mature man, it is not limit to them. The trend of silver is also strong for young men and boys who prefer to dye their hair and capture some of the Clooney effect.
The combination of the silver hair with a younger cut, such as a shaved bowl cut on the sides and nape, merges the best of both worlds.
It’s official. The trend of the gray haired man has begun and looks set to continue. Just remember that getting the right hair style is part of the effort and it’s equally important to choose a shampoo that makes the hair shiny and seemingly healthy gray. You want the loo?
