Men’s Hair Trends
Neon is delighted to welcome hair wizard Carmelo Guastella to advise on men’s current hair trends. Carmelo is an established and respected hairstylist and authority of men’s luxury grooming. “His haircuts grow out of the man like Michelangelo releasing David from Marble. Some call his haircuts works of art” say the FT. Now THAT is an intro.
“Here’s my view on the latest men’s hair trends as seen in recent fashion shows and on the streets of London” says Carmelo.
1. The Rise Of The Curls
More men are now embracing their curls or waves and you’ll need a good hairdresser/barber which understands your features and your hair in order to create a great shape.
How? Grow your hair to a medium length and then let your hairdresser sculpture what suits best your face shape. This is all about the natural looking waves or curls with minimal products and a move away from the buzz cut to show off healthy looking hair.
2. The Versatile Fringe and Quiff
I have combined the fringe and quiff in one category because if the haircut is done properly 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 dishevelled and natural styles.
How? The length of top is about 10-12cm and the sides 1.5-2cm the cut is achieved with clever cutting techniques to create soft texture and minimal usage of styling products which enhances the natural texture of the hair without giving a greasy look.
3. The George Clooney Haircut
I am seeing a rise in the George Clooney age category changing hairstyles they have had for years. We know men are creatures of habits but this category is definitely looking for a change but there is still a long way to go as many men of this age still don’t care much about their hair opting for cheap haircuts. Walking around London I notice guys with expensive cars, nice suits and a Rolex but the haircut lets them down
Warning: Visible cut and and marks of the clippers, short sides are not blended into the top, the clipper has followed the head shape and the hairline is not natural? These are are signs of a quick haircut.
