Bad news for man-bun aficionados and fans of long locks; it seems that based on current trends high and tight is all the rage when it comes to your hair. But it's not all bad news for those who enjoy the low-maintenance hipster look, beards are well and truly still in.
As one of Earth's most unstylish gents, it's probably best not to just take my word for it, which is why in times like these we call in the big guns to get an expert opinion.
"Men are coming in asking for new hot celebrity haircuts," says Johnson Viane, Head Barber at Esstudio Garage, "and the fresh styles are taking off from there. Cutting men’s hair has always been a passion of mine and to notice these young men come in inspired by different hair styles is what I like to see.”
It's only this week that Viane and Esstudio Garage unveiled their 2019 men’s hair predictions based on current trends and requests from this year. And according to what his clients have asked for this year, Viane predicts that 2019 is all about skin fades, box cuts and the chance that the comb over could be making a comeback. Did it ever really leave though?
Check out Viane's style predictions for 2019, and the celebrities who wear them (because barbers actually prefer when you give them a reference).
