Looking to revamp your hairstyle but can’t make up your mind? We present to you a compilation of the hottest hairstyle trends showing on Spring/Summer 2012 runways.
Take your pick from the masculine fringe at Burberry Prorsum to the classic part shown at Dries Van Noten .
1. Side Swept Fringe Hairstyle
Keeping it short at the back and sides, the side swept fringe, also called swept bangs can be played up accordingly as you like. To truly rock this style, you will need to find the perfect length for your face shape, be it at brow length or just around the temple. But, the trend for 2012 is gravitating towards a more textured, layered cut. For some great examples, look no further than Burberry Prorsum 2012 menswear show where the fringe style truly shined.

2. Wet Fringe Textured HairstyleSlick your side swept fringe forward using a matte wax or pomade and you would have achieved this next look as seen in the Jil Sander show. This wetter than wet hairstyle is not for everyone but if you’re up for it, you can recreate this hairstyle by pulling in hair from the temples and crowning it towards the forehead.

6. The Slick Back
The slick back goes hand in hand with George Clooney. This Adonis of a man has single-handedly catapulted this hairstyle into one that has dominated runways for the longest time. In fact, fashion has had a standing affair with the slick back and that is not about to change, as evident in the 2012 shows from Louis Vuitton to Ermenegildo Zegna.
