STEPHEN FOYLE

HAIR­STYL­IST

GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE GQ -

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.
