This year’s latest men’s hairstyle trend takes styles with long tops to the next level. While the pompadour, quiff, and undercut have already caught our attention, now it’s time for the blowout to reign supreme. From New York to Paris, men around the world are rocking this new hair trend in style. The blown-out haircut is not only eye-catching, but also edgy and cool.
1. Direct rash
This straight flared style with shaved sides is bold and edgy. The key to making the look work is to maintain a natural texture while keeping everything in place. Take special care if you have fine hair. A blowout of this style could end up going flat and limping before the day is out if your locks are thin.
2. Afro Glow
Afro-haired men can also create an awesome blowout style. Thanks to its natural texture and volume, this type of hair is the perfect partner for the look. If you want to try an afro blowout, remember to keep the sides of your hair shaved and groomed for a balanced look.
3. Blonde blowout
While a blowout is already a pretty daring look, a blonde blowout can be even more eye-catching. The light color combined with the windblown style creates a unique appearance. Whether you’re naturally blonde or not, you should consider this look for a more individualistic take on the trend.
4. Blowout with Fade
Traditionally, blown-out hairstyles have faded sides. Although today you’ll find all kinds of variations, a blowout with a fade is always a great look. To modernize the style, start your fade from the crown with definition between the longest hair on top of your head and the shorter sides. It will also refer to the undercut hairstyles that are so popular today.
5. Wavy rash
If your hair is naturally wavy, try embracing the blowout. Thanks to the organic texture of your hair, your brushing will appear modern and stylish. While the long length on top of your hair will show off your waves nicely and look relaxed, the faded sides will keep things tidy and sophisticated.
6. Full volume explosion
Men with thick hair will find a blowout looks good on them. The full volume look will have the type of dramatic look that was intended for this cut. Just be sure to keep things clean and neat. A wild, frizzy voluminous blowout can often look unkempt and unstyled.
7. Messy Blowout
A clean, structured blowout can easily look outdated. To keep things modern, opt for an elegantly disheveled look instead. To create the style, simply blend and scrunch hair with hands and pomade after blow-drying. The result will be a polished headboard look that’s perfect for the weekend.
Combining a blowout with an unstructured banana is a great way to merge two trends into one. While the blowout will provide a great voluminous look, the banana will help add shape and definition. To achieve the style, use your hands and pomade to gently mold your blowout into a wave shape at the hairline of your forehead.
9. Crown rash
This contemporary blowout style features a long section of hair on the crown of the head with a high fade on the sides. The contrast between the high top and the shaved sides creates an elongated effect, which makes it ideal for those with a round face shape. If your face is oval, you can always rock this look, but consider shortening the length on top or reducing the fade.
10. Small Curly Blowout
Since short, curly hair already has a natural tendency to sit down, a blowout can be a great styling option. The simple look shouldn’t take a lot of work and will look elegant. Remember that the longer you dry, the curlier your hair will be.
11. Postponed eruption
This look is great for guys with a bit of length on top. It is created by first drying the strands upwards before lightly combing or pushing the ends back. The addition of sharp, shaved sides also makes this blowout a very sophisticated and elegant cut.
12. Modern Blowout
Instead of trying a rock-hard blowout, modernize the look with a soft, textured look. Although blow-drying your hair up helps you achieve height and volume, it will take a hair product to maintain it. Instead of using gel, which can often have a hardening effect, try pomade, which provides a more natural finish.
13. Spiked rash
If you like the look of a blowout but want something with a more edgy aesthetic, consider trying a spiked blowout. The style, which works especially well for guys with straight locks, looks sharper and more intense than regular blowouts. To create the style at home, blow-dry the hair straight using a brush or comb before taking hair product between your fingers and pulling strands of hair up into a pointed tip.
14. Textured Blowout
While it’s easy to cut your hair into a cool blowout shape, it can be more difficult to style it to achieve the look you want. If after blow-drying you find your hair fluffy and unattractive, try adding some texture. All you need is the tiniest bit of texturizer through the front section of your hair to completely transform your style.
15. Cropped Blowout
A flare hairstyle is not just for men with long hair. These days, a short, cropped blowout can look just as stylish as any standard version. Thanks to its subtle appearance, you can even rock this look at the office with confidence.
How to Style a Blowout Haircut
- Towel dry hair after washing.
- Dry the hair on top of your head while using a nozzle to direct the air up and back and a round brush to pull the strands up.
- Once your hair is straight, use your fingers and pomade or gel to direct the hair around the outside of the crown upwards.
- Spray the top of your hair with hairspray.
- Dry the strands again using your hands or a comb to create the desired shape and style.
What is a blowout haircut?
Popular in the 90s, the blowout is a haircut designed to make your hair look like it’s been caught in a gust of wind. While generally less structured than a banana or pompadour, it shares the same voluminous look and short sides. Instead of shaping the front part into a pointed or rounded pom pom, the hair is styled upwards instead.
How do you ask for a blowout haircut?
Ask your stylist for a long cut on top — at least three inches — with volume and a soft finish, plus a tapered fade at the neck, sideburns, and temples.
Can you do a blowout on short hair?
While the classic blowout is designed for long or medium hair, a cropped blowout looks great on short hair, though it’s usually more subtle than the longer version.
How long does a rash last?
The tapering part of the rash usually lasts about three weeks. As for the top section, expect it to last for several hours or even a day. The type of product you use will determine how long the rash will hold its shape. Using pomade is a great option because it combines longevity and flexibility, so you can restyle your hair throughout the day as needed without it becoming crunchy or stiff.
