The Best Athletic Hair Styles Of 2017
If you are an athletic man then you need a hairstyle that suits what you love to do. There are a lot of hairstyles that can accommodate a high level of physical activity and still be stylish enough for a night out. Here are some options to consider.
The crew cut is suitable for the man that really loves simplicity and clean lines. If you do a lot of sports then too much hair can seem like it is weighing you down and causing you to overheat. The crew cut is easy to get at any barber shop and it can be done so that more hair is left then you might expect. Your barber or stylist can easily change your cut so that you have a longer length than usual on top. A lot of guys that have crew cuts keep some clippers around for touch ups so they are not always having to go to a barber.
If you don't want to give up on a longer hair cut then the undercut may be the answer you are looking for. Cutting length off the bottom allows for better air flow when working out. The top is up to you. If you have longer hair you can always cut the top off more later or keep it growing.
A pompadour is pretty easy to maintain if it is shorter or mid length. Higher pomps require a lot more styling but if you are willing to dedicate a few minutes in the morning they are doable even for pretty active guys.
Flat Top And Fade
If you have the right face shape the flat top and fade can be a good look. Those with a squarer face shape should be prepared to accentuate the shape if they get this look. You can use a beard shaper or stencils to add designs to your fade. If you have really curly hair this is one way to tame it.
Layers that are no more than chin length or that tape down to the neck allow for amazing texture. This style grows out well so if you decide you want to go longer you will look good while doing it. Highlights added to layers can add definition and emphasis to your style and draw the eye to the best features of your face.
Long Hair For Athletes
If you are a big fan of having longer hair then you are going to need some ideas for how to put it up at times. The man bun is one of the classic modern looks that is on the runway or sports field today. There is always the pony tail of course. On days off there is a lot you can do with long hair such as a side sweep or slicked back. A lot of athletes showed national pride at the 2017 Olympics by creative color on longer hair.
