What’s your first impression?

51 years ago a phenomenon occurred. Four neatly groomed and well dressed young men took the stage. An unheard of 60% of American TV’s were tuned in. A mob of young ladies stretched for over eight blocks around the studio. Excitement mounted, hearts throbbed, as the lads prepared to debut their record breaking hit, “All My Loving”. Yes Beatle Mania was occurring. The Beatles knew how to catch a crowd. While their melodic tunes and catchy lyrics would have been enough to build this iconic group, it was their hair and sharply designed suits that got everyone’s attention.

Men’s hair has continued to evolve and has become a fashion statement. There is no mistaking that men really do care about how they look and that their hair, no matter how much or little of it, defines their look.

The men’s hair trends for 2015 are creating a “buzz” for both the stylists and the sharp groomed men wearing them. The classy undercut style with short sides and length on top is still wearing well. However, a softer finish is the path we are taking this one. Starting with a shampoo that is designed for your hair type is important and using a blow dryer, yes we said a blow dryer, is key to getting lift and direction on top. Then finishing with a soft paste will keep your hair natural with some separation.

If your hair is fine or you are density challenged keep it short but with style. Lines and shape are of the utmost importance. There are many options for thickening agents and finishing sprays that won’t dry your hair out or weigh it down.

A lot of men have beards, but are they tamed beards? There are many tips and tricks to a good-looking beard. If you have an oblong or oval face shape, trim your hairs closer on the underside of your chin, but leave a little bit of length on the cheeks. Do you have a round face? Create length by leaving more hair on your chin and less on the cheeks. Also make sure to comb down your mustache and trim any hair that falls below your lip line using scissors or a trimmer. More tips and tricks include shampooing and conditioning your beard every day, just like your hair. When you see stray hairs, use a trimmer to get rid of them and trim your neckline with a small guard. Another great thing to use is beard oil! It softens your hair and skin, and hydrates the hair underneath.

Styling a great haircut is the first step in building a finished overall groomed look. Remember it only takes one tenth of a second to form a first impression. Your overall outward appearance is the basis on which that impression is formed. Build an impression that is lasting, gets you noticed and most importantly brings your best personal attributes shining through.

Tips and Tricks: Styling Techniques

Two simple tools that you probably already have are a comb and a blow dryer.  As shown in the picture, put the concentrator attachment on the end of your blow dryer to control where the air flow hits the hair. Jason, our stylist, prefers to use a comb rather than a brush for this style and many others because most brushes grab too much hair and are harder to control. Using a comb will allow maximum air flow and provide more ease of controlling where you want the hair…

Classic meets Modern

Our spring hair trends continue by bringing a professional edge to classic lines. Our Master Designer, Jason Schaible, was inspired with the likes of James Dean from the past and Jon Hamm who plays Madmen’s Don Draper from the present. As the weather continues to heat up in Central Ohio, Jason noticed many clients wanting to let go of their winter coat. With that in mind, he sculpted our model’s hair to bring a masculine and modern yet vintage shape. We kept the beard intact but provided a fade around the…

Let it Go

Let it go! This is not a new years resolution; it is our spring trend theme! Last year we noticed a lot of ‘ideas’ of what our clients wanted their hair to look like, which resulted in waiting for their hair to grow, not knowing how to deal with it in the process, and a vague picture of how it would look in the long run. We say “Let it Go” and live for the now! In the pictures above Charles was in that game of let’s grow it…

How it’s done.

We have spent that last two newsletters talking about 2017 hair trends and embracing the spirit of “Let It Go.” Now we are going to share with you how it’s done. The spring trend cut showcased previously is extremely versatile. The trick is using the right products and getting adventurous in how you use them.
