Need a New Look? Here are 5 of the Top Men’s Haircuts for 2017

As men increasingly add hair care and grooming as important parts of their self-care regimens, interest in trendy hairstyles has surged. At Accolades Salon Spa, in St. Paul, MN, they recently hosted a photo shoot for which several local men volunteered to serve as models and receive stylish new haircuts. Take a look at a few before and after photos from this exciting event:


Tapered Pompadour Accolades Salon Spa Mn

Although the pompadour originated as a hairstyle for women in the mid-1700s, it was transformed into an iconic men’s style by Elvis Presley and other famous rock ’n' roll musicians of the mid-20th century. After a brief decline in popularity, the pompadour has recently reemerged as one of the hottest hairstyles for men, with many musicians, celebrities, and hipsters rocking this classic look.

The model pictured here came to Accolades Salon Spa with a slightly shaggy appearance. To elevate his style, the Accolades team trimmed and shaped his beard and worked his hair into a tapered pompadour. This style features short hair tapered on the sides of the head and long hair coiffed slickly on the top. Thanks to the skill of the stylists, this handsome model seems thrilled with his hip new look!

Tapered Short Pompadour Accolades Salon Spa Mn

The pompadour is a versatile hairstyle that can be customized to suit different tastes. The dapper model in these photos wanted to maintain a clean-cut, professional appearance—but with a stylish flair. The Accolades team trimmed his hair so that the edges are neat and styled the longer hair at the top of his head into a short pompadour.

Tapered Fade With Length Accolades Salon Spa Mn

This striking model came in with great, thick hair that offered our stylists many options for giving him a new look. They chose a tapered fade, in which longer hair at the top of the model’s head transitions flawlessly into short hair—almost resembling a buzz cut—at the sides. The result is a sleek, classic look that will help this gentleman impress friends and colleagues in both his personal and professional lives.

Tapered With Top Lenth Accolades Salon Spa Mn

This dashing gent’s hair had grown long and a bit unruly. When he came in for the photo shoot, the talented salon team wanted to showcase his hair’s natural volume while giving him a neater, more fashionable look. They opted for a tapered style with length on the top and short, well-trimmed hair on the sides and back of the model’s head. With the help of the Accolades team’s transformative touch, the model is now sporting an eye-catching, trendy new style!



In this make-over, the team wanted to preserve this gentleman’s sophisticated appearance while giving his hair and beard a more clean-cut aesthetic. They cut his hair into a short fade and trimmed and groomed his beard for a subtly enhanced style.

While these five hairstyles are among the most popular for men in 2017, the Accolades Salon Spa team creates a wide variety of new looks for men and women alike! They also offer several other services, including skin care, massages, manicures and pedicures, and more.
