An aggression issue

I am posting in hopes of helping a friend. She has a rescue dog that is part shepard, part husky and part border collie. In the last couple of weeks she has started to lunge and snap at men (only), not when they are with a dog. This does not hapen all the time but every once in a while or when they are outside if a guy approaches she will sit there wagging her tail but at the same time she will show her teeth. She has not bitten anybody but this has to be stopped before it gets worse. She has had the dog for 5 months. She is fine off lead in the park. Any suggesstions on how to handle this situation and what would be your answers as far as correction for it. I figured if anybody will have answers they will be on this board. I luckily have never had a dog with aggression issues every other kind of issue but never aggression. My first thought was that a male was teasing her but she is never out in the yard for more than 5 minutes by herself. She is spayed and friendly with most dogs not as friendly on lead but off she is fine. Thanks everyone
A dog has so many friends because they wag their tails not their tongues.
