Creative director of Sydney’s Detail For Men salon, Foyle was on hand for our fashion shoot in New Zealand (p138). “It was epic,” he says. “Working on the mountain and glacier was extreme. Frozen hair product and numb hands made it interesting.”
WHAT’S THE LATEST TREND IN MEN’S HAIR?
We’re moving away from the hipster fade to a ‘roughster’ look. Less groomed, longer hair and mid-length beards. Think ’70s Paul Newman.
AND HOW DO WE GET IT RIGHT?
Blow-dry hair with a texture spray until it’s completely dry, and use minimal styling paste to hold. Strong, masculine hair looks best natural – so when applying product, less is definitely more.
WHAT DO WE NEED IN OUR BATHROOM CABINET?
A natural bristle hairbrush, a boar bristle shaving brush, carbon hair comb, good quality clay pomade and paste and a blow dryer with a nozzle attachment.
HOW DO WE PICK A DECENT HAIRSTYLIST?
The good ones will use facial structure, occupation and personality to tailor a style. Ask if they can do ‘scissor over comb’ instead of clippers, for a more blended, natural taper. If they give you the old, ‘What did you want today?’ line, rather than a consultation about what you need, you’re in the wrong place.
