We’re only a few weeks into spring and already this season’s upcoming hair trends are being spotted around town. Even men’s hair is getting a drastic overhaul for spring. Ditch short hairstyles and shaven heads; so last season. The pros give us the low-down on the top spring-summer hairstyles to watch.
Long gone are the days when men could simply cut their hair short to avoid any maintenance such as gelling and styling. ‘Right now, big hair for men is where it’s at. Men are growing their hair longer to give it body and more styling opportunities. Whatever look you’re going for, there’s a long style to suit you’.
Hair gels and texturising hair powder are great for creating different looks. All you need to do is pick one! ‘Whereas gel gives a shiny finish, powder gives more volume and a matte finish. These products will help keep your style in place, whether you wear your hair to the side or with volume on top.’
For spring-summer 2014, guys should be wearing their hair long, around 4cm long to be precise. ‘This is the absolute minimum length your hair needs to be to create a longer look. Whether you prefer to slick your hair back, keep your hair rigidly in place or create movement and body, long hair is the way to go this season. You can always try a mid-length style first if you’re not sure about long hair. Summer hair trends are going to be a mix of bad boy chic and seductive sleek. Guys are going to be spoilt for choice!
Our tip: At your hair appointment with your stylist, ask for a hairstyle that features longer layers on top and shorter sides. This means that even though your top section looks styled, you won’t look overdone.
