Men’s hair is going will get interesting every year as more men are giving more importance to their image, both socially and at the office.
Carmelo Guastella cuts to the chase on the latest hair trends as seen in recent fashion shows and hitting the streets of London. Last year we have seen a rise of men growing their hair longer, especially on top. It is a different story now.
"A stylist needs to take into account a variety of factors, including age, hair type, profession, face and head shape, in order to achieve the perfect fit."Mr. Cuastella states as he takes a sip of his champagne glass. He then gives us the insiders view on this year's trends.
THE RISE OF THE CURLS
More men are moving away from the short back and sides and are now embracing their curls or waves. You need a good hairdresser/barber which understands your features and your hair in order to create a great shape.
This is the perfect look for guys with wavy or curly hair, grow your hair to a medium length and let your hairdresser sculpture what suits the shape of your face, this is all about natural looking waves or curls and minimal products. This type of hair will be popular as we move away from the buzz cut to show healthy looking hair.
THE VERSATILE FRINGE AND QUIFF
I have combined the fringe and quiff in one category because if the haircut is done properly it can be styled both up, down on the forehead or somewhere in between. There is no perfection like we have seen in the past with neat side parts or perfect quiffs but we will see more disheveled and natural styles. The length of the top is about 10-12cm and the sides 1.5-2cm the cut is achieved with clever cutting techniques to create a soft texture and minimal usage of styling products which enhances the natural texture of the hair without having a greasy look.
THE GEORGE CLOONEY HAIRCUT
I am seeing a rise in the George Clooney age category interested in improving or changing their hairstyles which they have had since childhood. We know men are creatures of habits and this category is definitely looking for a change.
Still, a long way to go as many men of this age still does not care much about their hair opting for cheap haircuts which are noticeable. The George Clooney age category will slowly break habit opting for more stylish haircuts and learning how to style their hair.
Walking around London I notice gents with expensive cars, nice suits, and accessories, but the haircuts let them down as the clipper marks are not blended well with the hair. This is the sign of a cheap haircut.
Exciting times for men’s hairstyles ahead, it is a slow process as men’s grooming is a fairly new trend that with continue to grow year by year. So to keep your hair on point with this years' top products, view GOA's Anti-Vice Skin & Grooming Solutions.
