ROUGH AND READY
Men’s hair trends get an overdue makeover
For those who are just tired of the man bun or undercut-floppy-mohawk look, 2018 is your year. You can say adios to your hair tie and hello to a more rough-and-ready look.
While we looked at beards and moustaches last month in Style ,to carry off the entire look you’ll want to make sure your top-of-head hair is on-trend as well.
As the warmer seasons approach ever nearer, there seems very little middle ground between the two trends in hairstyle.
Some men will be relieved to discover a traditional buzzcut is in, with the polar-opposite mid-length gentle waves also on trend. Oddly enough, the buzzcut can be done in a myriad ways.
Go for simplicity with a ‘number one’ all over, create a faded look by trimming less on top, or go for the ‘burr cut’ with a number 2 or 3 all over.
With the longer styled hair that’s in this season, it is very important that your hair is well-looked after to produce maximum softness.
Locks should be left loose, from mid-length to shoulder-length, and not too straight.
Depending on the nature of your hair, leaving it mildly untamed looks best.
Wash every second day to discourage excessive oiliness, and treat with hair oil weekly to maintain hydration and avoid split ends.
