Professional men and men that like to personalize their style are starting to use professional hairdressers and salons instead of just frequenting the barber shops for more traditional cuts. This has lead to a new line of products and hair care services for men.
Just like with women’s cuts, the haircuts that are fashionable with men tend to be those that are worn by celebrities.
Most of these styles tend to involve some shaping of the hair at the base of the neck and the sides of the head, with longer lengths being left on the top of the head. This is a versatile cut that can be enhanced with the use of mousse or style gel to give a tousled look, or slicked back to give a professional appearance. This style can be worn with or without bangs.
Another popular cut for men of all face shapes and hair types is the very close cropped hairstyle.
This works will for all hair textures, including the naturally curly hair types as well as fine, straight hair. Many men that have thin hair prefer to keep their hair very short to minimize attention to the thinning areas.
Very popular in the African American culture is the 360 wave, which involves short hair styled to give the appearance of waves or ridges over the head.
Layering or thinning the hair can be used to provide texture or body on thin or fine hair.
Many men also choose to have color added to their hair to add body and to enhance their hairs color.
Men should always bring a picture of the cut they would like to their barber or hairstylist.
While describing the cut you want is important, actually having a picture will help the stylist understand the length you want and the exact style.
Be aware that different hair types look better in certain cuts than others, and discuss this with your stylist before starting.
