2012 Mens Hairstyles Have a Nice Sex Appeal and Edge to Them

Mens hairstyles for 2012 are quite hip and edgy. Men are really getting into the latest trends, which is great for salons and friends. Why? Because a good head of hair equals a great conversation. Some of the styles from last year return such as the cool rockabilly, slicked back, curly mop top, and the fringe. However, this year you have some new cool looks along with some new twists on a few old looks. Check them out.

Sexy Shoulder Length Hair

Now I'm not talking Fabio length here, more like Steven Tyler, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt back in the day, Josh Holloway or like Hugh Jackman.

Wear it one length slicked back on top and straight down, or have a stylist add long layers throughout the hair. DO NOT have the stylist layer into the length though.

If your hair is wavy or curly that's cool too, it's all in for this year.

Wet, Slicked And Parted

Last year the rage was all about having slicked straight back hair. Well switch it up for 2012 and create a drastic part either in the middle or on the side.

Sassy Mop Top

You can also call this the messy bed head look. Your hair needs to have at least a few inches on top. This way you will be able to create some volume, and give yourself that ultimate look. For curly hair use a curling mousse, and straight opt for a good hair pomade or gel.

Cool Undercut

This style brings back memories. It reminds me when clients use to get the bowl or mushroom cut. The sides and back underneath would be tapered/shaved very close then the rest of the hair would flop over it. Hair can be curly, wavy, or straight. Length on top only has to have enough hair to play around with.

Forward And Slightly Fringed

Some stylists out there are calling this look a Brit/Indie Rock look. I guess I can go with that. The sides and back are cropped short, and then the length of the top has a few inches. Comb it all forward and don't be perfect about it. It's almost like a Justin Bieber in a way. Wear the hair straight or curly.

Other hot styles include the double slick, short buzz, Messy curls, chin length, crew cut, sexy bald look, buzz with spikes, angled bob, Rockabilly, and some awesome looking faux hawks.
