It might still have been winter during Paris Men’s Fashion Week (AW23, 17-22 January 2023), but the hairstyles were hot! The models rocking the catwalk gave fashion fans a glimpse of what to expect from the top salons in spring this year.
Many men will be happy to know that the no-product, no-effort look is back on trend! However, while they might look low-maintenance, these types of styles require care and attention to go from “bedhead” to “catwalk style.” Paris saw models with straightened locks, artfully tousled to create a carefree vibe. While tons of products might be out for these kinds of styles, men should make sure their hair is in great condition and use specialist oils or similar to protect their hair when using heat tools like straighteners. A good quality conditioner can be the key to maintaining loose but tamed locks.
The official partner for hair at Paris Fashion Week was Balmain Hair Couture. Their team, helmed by artistic director Ilham Mestour, created surprisingly soft styles for many of their models. Mestour said, “The hair was an ode and tribute to the spirit of the 70s glam rock, combining sharp middle parting with soft angelic waves, hair with a unisex statement but also very graphic coiffed setting.” Expect longer, gentle waves that carefully frame the face to be the surprise hit of men’s hairstyles this spring.
In complete contrast with the softer, longer look, the other big hit on the catwalk this season was the buzz cut. This is another low-maintenance option, requiring zero daily styling and minimal products. It can also be the reset button for men who want to completely transform their style: a buzz cut can be the precursor to growing out your hair to try something very different from your previous look. Catwalk buzz cuts were paired with sharp suits, long jackets, and baggy pants, showing just how versatile this style can really be. Plus, men who worry about their hairline can feel more confident with a buzz cut that hides thinning hair.
