This is the hair trend that every guy will be wearing in 2017 – and it has major ‘50s vibes.

You only have to look down Grafton Street to realize how much hair trends have kicked off for men in Ireland in recent years.

Whether it be tight sides with a curly ‘fro on top or hair combed and coiffed to within an inch of it’s life, it’s no secret that Irish men love their gruaig.

Independent Style chatted to Toni & Guy’s Creative Director, Indira Schauwecker, behind the scenes at the Sibling AW17 show in London to find out what hair trend will be the most popular for men in 2017.

“Men’s hair is getting a little bit more grown out, but they still like to have that short and tight feel for the sides,” explained Indira.

“But again, a big difference is that it’s not anymore that much about product that will give that really greasy, strict feel, it’s more like creating a luxurious finish to it, while still having the need to blow dry hair and put a little bit more effort into your hair with more styling products, and products that give you that volume but instead of being dry or greasy, it’s more natural and shiny.”

“The sleekness of the hair, even if there’s a movement or still an undone feel to it, it’s much more shiny, it’s not as matte anymore. Even if you want more of a beachy look, you still need it to look healthier and more done, instead of that undone look we saw for many seasons.”

“Even if hair is undone, it still needs to look healthy and luxurious, and that’s a bring trend for autumn/winter ’17.”

Love them or hate them, Indira is confident that the controversial man bun will be sticking around for a few more seasons.

“I feel like a lot of designers are pushing for men to wear what they want, and that’s a big trend as well, to let them be the leader of the trends. To be different, to be yourself and to kind of follow whatever you think,” she said.

“If you have long hair, it is a comfort thing about putting the hair in the bun, so I think the man bun will still be around because long hair is becoming a trend.”

To get the sleek look seen at the Sibling show, which was inspired by the traditional style of Spanish bull fighters, Indira recommends using the Toni & Guy 3D Volumiser Spray to create volume and lift the hair before styling.

“The 3D Volumiser Spray gives you hold, it gives you lift, but as well if you use it on dry hair, it gives more of a shiner hold to it, so it’s like a gel finish. You can use it in different ways, so if you blow dry it in, it gives the hair a natural finish and that would give you more of a hold, or if you want to do a tight pony tail or man bun, it gives you that grittiness that you need for it to hold.”

“I also love the Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray, because even if you want to have that more polished feel, you can achieve the same with sea salt. I use the 3D Volumiser Spray first to give that volume and luxuriousness, and then after I use the Sea Salt Texturising Spray to finish it off.”

The Sibling x Toni & Guy collaboration will be available in Boots from March.
