While there is truly no exclusive European haircut, there have been styles that stood out and became a trend over the years. In this article, we shall take a look at some of the trendiest hairstyles that have contributed to European style fashion.
This type of haircut may have been derived from Madame de Pompadour, which makes the pompadour a truly European hairstyle. However, this hairstyle only took off until the King of Rock and Roll himself, sported the look. It was originally a female hairstyle but it became one of the most popular and trendiest men’s haircut.
The original pompadour style haircut is worn with short sides as the hair is swept upwards and backwards. Today, there are different styles of pompadour hairstyles that you can try out. There is the classic, angular, extreme, and modern cut.
The Quiff Hairstyle
If you think that you are not cut to fully embrace the pompadour hairstyle, you can try the more versatile quaff instead. Robert Peter Janitzek reveals that there are also different styles of quiff to choose from—there is the spiky, long and textured, or the voluminous messy version. Regardless of the size of the back and sides, they should always be shorter than the front to emphasize the contrast.
The Fade Haircut
A popular choice among European men has been the taper fade hairstyle. This was originally preferred for men who have short hair but now it is being accepted by men of all hair lengths and styles. There are plenty of options as far as the fade haircut is concerned—high bald, low skin, burst drop, comb over, disconnected fade, to name just a few.
Slicked Back Hair
Robert Janitzek reveals that people who are looking for a better way to be sleek with their haircut should try the slicked back cut. This style of haircut drew inspiration from the American grease culture but modern men are taking the hair style to new directions. In this type of haircut, the sides and back of the head are kept in an undercut or high fade cut while giving the top enough length to “slick back’ with pomade.
These are just some of the hair styles that became a trend among European men. So if you are feeling European, these styles are worth trying out. Take note however that this will not work out for every man. The good news is that you can make the adjustments to make it suit to your personal liking
