A STRONG NOD TO THE ’90S HERE WITH A SUPER SLEEK, POKER-STRAIGHT FINISH, BUT THE KEY IS HAIR THAT’S IN GREAT, AND WE MEAN GREAT NICK. SO THAT MEANS GET A GOOD TRIM (SPLIT ENDS ARE MORE VISIBLE ON STRAIGHTER STYLES) AND GET INTO THE HABIT OF USING A TREATMENT AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK. THE AIM IS TO YES, GET IT SMOOTH, BUT YOU DON’T WANT IT TO LOOK TOO ‘LANK’ – IT’S GOT TO HAVE A LITTLE GUTS AT THE ROOT TO MAKE IT LOOK MODERN. SO, PREP HAIR WITH A MOUSSE BEFORE STYLING.
If you want to make sure this look complements your features, switch your parting to off-centre instead of middle, which can look a bit severe.
