Men's hair trends come and go but the good ones tend to stick around. This season seems to be all about short side sweeps and we think it could turn out to be a real 'thing' in the male grooming world.

This hairstyle is, in our book, seriously likeable. It doesn't come across as too serious but it can also be dressed up when the occasion calls for it. It's the kind of style that won't ruffle any feathers at work, but won't look too "stick in the mud" on a night out either. In short, it's the best of both worlds.

Fashion loves this hairstyle, too. As the world's leading designers unveiled their spring 2014 collections, a lot of them chose different variations of the side sweep to go with their new garb. So, if you had any concerns about the on-trend value of this look, you can forget all about them.

How to style

This hairstyle is short-ish but long enough for a disheveled texture. You want to ask your stylist to cut the sides shorter than the top, but not too short. Make no mistake, this cut has very little in common with the undercut, which is good because longer sides require way less maintenance.

Where products are concerned, all you really need is some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum to give you a low-shine finish and plenty of hold. Apply a small amount evenly throughout your hair then shape as desired with your hands.

So, will you be trying a short side-sweep of your own?

For those of you who remain unconvinced, check out this longer side part tutorial.

Happy styling!
