Which men's hairstyle do you like best for summer?

Summer hairstyles are all about looking good without really trying. Slicked back hair and textured waves both look effortlessly good and, with the right haircut, they really don't require any effort! The question is, which hairstyle would you be most likely to wear?

Slicked back hair

Suave, slicked back hair is perfect for summer as it has a really fresh, clean feel. Swept back from the hairline, this hairstyle demonstrates a certain amount of ease and control without appearing uptight. If you have naturally quite thick hair, or need to tame messy strands, this look is definitely worth considering!

Styling tip

Start with a small amount of product, whether you're using gel or a more low-shine product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty. You only need the bare minimum, so begin with a dime-sized amount and then add more as needed.

Textured hair

Tousled wavy hair creates a beachy, carefree look, whether you're by the ocean or hundreds of miles from the nearest beach. For those of you with natural waves, all you need to do is shape them with a little product and you're good to go. If you have naturally straight hair, use some more product, scrunch it, then shape it.

Styling tip

Get a subtle piecey look by twisting individual pieces of hair with some matte gum such as Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum. After twisting, break the pieces up with your fingers, then rake it all into place.

What do you think? Which summer hairstyle gets your vote?
