As top stylists will tell you, creating great new styles for men is almost as much of an art these days as creating their female equivalents.That certainly seems to be true in 2013, when the sheer variety of cuts on show will be greater than ever. So without further ado, here are the hairstyles to look out for in the coming months.topBest men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Best men's hairstyles for 2013 - 1(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandyStyled by Jody Taylor, head of Toni&Guy's men's hair education, the Edwardian dandy is side-parted with a natural luxe finish.On Bing: find a Toni&Guy salontopEdwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Edwardian dandy - 2(©Toni&Guy)Wet look According to Michael Douglas, style director at Shockwaves and Head&Shoulders, the wet look is back on the catwalks. It's something of a throwback to the early noughties (here's Friends' star David Schwimmer sporting the look in 2004). "Towel dry hair and apply a wet look gel to damp hair," advises Douglas. "Sculpt and style into place using a fine tooth comb and leave to dry."On Bing: more on how to get the wet looktopWet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Wet look  - 3(©Mike Webster-Rex Features)Rebel boy This classic 1960s style, created by Jody Taylor at Toni&Guy, features slicked-back quiffs with shaved sides and a good length on top.On Bing: men's fashions of the 1960stopRebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Rebel boy  - 4(©Toni&Guy)Soft quiff According to Michael Douglas, "the ‘'Soft Quiff'’ was seen on the catwalks of Belstaff and Burberry and is another simple, relaxed classic.
