Man Bun Is Probably the Trendiest Hairstyle Now

Man Bun Is Probably the Trendiest Hairstyle Now

When you look back at pictures of yourself, your first inclination is to look at your face, and it is not so much your facial expression that distracts you (well most of the time), but the masterpiece framing it. Your hair, believe it or not, says a lot about who you are or at least who you want to portray yourself to be.

With the help of this infographic of the trendiest hairstyles for men, you can decide which hairstyle works best for you. Remember, the style you choose is an important step in branding yourself. Within the first few seconds of meeting someone, an individual makes their initial assessment (whether you care or not).

This infographic uniquely paints the picture of the trendiest hairstyles, whether you are a samurai warrior or a classic businessman type.

Let’s start with the undercut. This is a style for all hair types and is easy to style. It recognizes that you are on point with the trends, and savvy enough to modify it for your face shape, texture, and needs.

The man bun and its counterpart, the top knot, on the other hand, are not for the faint of heart as they are the trendiest and most daring of all. These styles are hard to pull off and look best on those with rugged masculinity and natural wavy or curly tresses.

The fade is best for the guy with no time for sprays and hair wax, or someone who is worried about thinning hair. He sticks to his comfort zone while looking fresh and put together.

Meanwhile, for that classy confident business minded man, stick with the side part and comb, as this hairstyle is timeless.

Lastly, the pompadour and the short back and sides hairstyles, are for the higher maintenance men who take pride in spending some serious time slicking their hair into the perfect coif. These guys are creative, fun and unique with thier twist on class.

Whether you’re the rugged masculine samurai or the classic side parting business man, with today’s trends, you are sure to find the perfect style for you.

    How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

    How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

    Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

    The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

    The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

    Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

    Review Your Past Flow

    Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

    Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

    Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

    Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

    Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

    Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

    Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

    We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

    Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
