The goal with this cut is to blend the extreme disconnection. “The new trend is to have less of a line of demarcation,” Acord says. “There is a fine line between being right and being balanced and looking good.” To accomplish this, Acord takes some of the weight out of the top, focusing on the crown.

Vaughn Acord, founder of V76 men’s grooming products, says his favorite trend for 2016 men is touchable, lived-in hair, which, he says, is more interesting for the hairdresser and more palatable for the client.
