Two great looks for your guy
Sometimes men know what they want in a hairstyle (usually the less steps it involves to get them out the door, the better), but sometimes, well, they need a little bit of guidance from the women in their life.
And because we’d hate for you to be caught off guard when he whines, “I just don’t know what to do with my hair anymoreeeeee” while stamping his feet (okay, no man ever has really done that, but let’s pretend), we’ve got a couple of looks that are not only super-simple to style, but they’re damn sexy too. Everyone wins.
Don’t Ryan Gosling and Jon Hamm look dapper with their fancy side partings and sleek suits? As good as this style looks when dressed up, it looks just as good when dressed down with a pair of jeans and Converse. So why has this style gained such popularity over the last year? According to Rob Mason, finalist of the 2013 Hair Expo’s Men’s Hairdresser of the Year awards and stylist at Victoria’s BIBA Clifton Hill, it’s because this particular cut makes any guy look masculine without them having to put in much effort. For best results when getting it cut, your man should ask his barber to make the parting neat, the sides clean and short, but leave a bit of length on the top. And in terms of styling? This style looks great when it has a slight sheen to it, so if you do use a product with shine (which we think you should!) then Rob advises that his hair will need to be combed into place.
The rock star
For guys who prefer something a bit more disheveled and ‘get-up-and-go’, they’ll be pleased to hear that, in Rob’s words, “the less effort the better”. Jules Tognini, also a finalist in the same category and stylist at Queensland’s AKA Tongnini’s, agrees, adding that, “anything messy is awesome.” Whether your boy’s hair is short or down to his shoulders, the shaggy, relaxed look can easily be achieved with styling products that give hair texture and a matte finish. To get this result, Jules recommends your man allow his hair to naturally take shape (so let it dry as it may) and to scrunch and muss it up a bit haphazardly.
Note: this look instantly turns from ‘the rock star’ into ‘the hipster’ when paired with a beard – be it full-on or just some scruff.
