What his hair says about him

What his hair says about him

We checked out the runways to find the latest trends in men's hairstyles. But model looks are one thing – what’s the reality when your man gives it a try?

Short and sweet

One of the most popular trends is for very short hair. Clean and comfortable, it’s a look that’s easy to comb and maintain. It has an elegant, yet modern and chic air.

What his hair style says ‘I’m no-nonsense. Yes, I want to look my best but no, I’m not going to use up the whole bottle of your shampoo every time I’m in the shower.’

Short sides and longer in the middle

This is a favourite of the sharp, practical man, because it requires little care, except for trims to maintain the shape. It can be a very clean, well-defined cut on the sides, with more length on top. Just how long that middle crop is depends purely on taste, but when it’s just a centimetre or two longer than the sides it can be ruffled slightly for a charmingly roguish look. It can be very elegant and seductive, but outgrown it can look a little too sheep-shearer for anywhere but, well, the ranch. It appeals to men who like to imagine that one day they will be brave enough to go for the full-on Mohawk.

What his hair style says ‘I like an easy life but I don’t want to be predictable – when my spikes are up I’m in a rebellious mood.’

Medium length tousled

This is a very relaxed, informal, carefree look – natural, with a lot of movement. A couple of medium-length layers create volume that allows for a rough and curly look. Sexy and youthful.

What his hair style says ‘I’m pretty fit but this buffed body was made in the rugged outdoors, not a city gym,’ more confidently than a gorgeous mess of hair that’s actually probably taken 30 minutes to get right.

Moussed and side-parted

Romantic and gentlemanly, this is perhaps the most classic look – worn by masked movie heroes from Errol Flynn onwards. The slightly fuller cut requires mousse and it’s very flattering for the man who wants to keep his appearance in check at work, rest and play.

Think Cary Grant and you can’t go wrong.

What his hair style says If a man’s hair says, ‘I take care of the details,’ you stand a much better chance of getting him to remember your birthday.

Clean shaven, lean looking

The shaved head – whether it’s a ‘number one’ cut or a completely clean all over shave – can work fantastically well with the right shape face, especially for a casual, ‘let’s go!’ summer look. Trim it short with hair clippers first, then finish off that smooth shaved look with Gillette Fusion Proglide shave gel and a razor like the Fusion ProGlide Power.

What his hair style says There’s something about a well-shaved head that instantly makes you want to run your hand over it. It says, ‘I know it’s all about the sense of touch.’

The Silk-expert is a delight

The Silk-expert is a delight


My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.

I have done my 3rd Braun Silk-expert IPL treatment I have noticed the hairs on my legs are softer and finer and my arms are also a lot finer - I am loving it so much! I'm sure after a few more treatments the results will be even more amazing.
