WEDDING DAY HAIRSTYLES
ALL THAT TIME MAKING SURE YOUR SUIT FITS LIKE A GLOVE IS WASTED IF YOU DON’T HAVE YOUR HAIR UNDER CONTROL. HERE ARE FOUR OPTIONS TO LOOK YOUR BEST.
Sitting somewhere between a brush cut and conservative ’50s style, this is the ultimate low-maintenance option. GO-TO PRODUCTS: KMS California ‘Moist Repair Shampoo’, $28.95 (300ml); KMS California ‘Silk Sheen Conditioner’, $28.95 (250ml); Nak ‘In Shape Shaping Paste’, $24.95 (90g) TIP: When it comes to styling products, a blob the size of a five-cent piece is all that’s required for this hair length.
SLICK Mad Men
may be over but Don Draper’s style is perennial. The classic short back and sides with a razorsharp side part will never let you down. GO-TO PRODUCT: For the well-balanced blend of shine and hold ideal for this retro style, try Mitch ‘Barber’s Classic Moderate Hold/high Shine Pomade’, $29.90 (85g) TIP: Rub the product well between your hands to ensure even distribution.
Think Ivy League prep on holiday – a bit more length to play with up top and subtle blending to the sides and back. GO-TO PRODUCT: Aveda Men ‘Pure-formance Liquid Pomade’, $39.95 (200ml) TIP: Contrary to popular belief, longer hair doesn’t automatically require more product – a dollop the size of a 50c coin will provide all the lightweight control required, with just a touch of shine.
With a bit of extra length through the top, back and sides, the emphasis here is on matte texture and a swept-back finish. GO-TO PRODUCT: For a modern style that looks well-groomed without being too ‘done’, try Toni & Guy ‘Men Messy Salt Spray’, $15.99 (200ml) TIP: Apply the product to damp hair from root to tip and blast for a minute with a hair dryer to set in place.
