Hair styles and cuts are just as important to the modern man as they are to women. Celebrities and sports stars on a regular basis show us how much hair can change your perception of a person and how much it can influence the look and feel of an outfit.
However it does seem that men can be lacking in a few small but important factors when it comes to styling their own hair.
So to help you out with some of them Style Director Helen has 5 tips that will get you on track and help you get your hair just right.
- Make Friends With A Hairdryer
There is nothing wrong with letting your hair air dry but if are after any style other than the ‘just woke up look’ then you need to make sure you have a hairdryer to hand.
Not only will it dry your hair quicker, a plus on it’s own, but it will also make managing your hair easier too, which is the key to getting the style you want and keeping it that way.
The heat from the hairdryer will also make sure that any products you use will set faster, making sure they are doing the job you want from the moment you put them on your hair!
- Be Product Friendly
There is a wide range of styling products aimed just for men out there and if you haven’t already, it’s time you had a look through them.
From mousse to gels, there are products out there that will help you achieve the style you’ve always wanted.
Depending on your hair type or length different products can benefit you in different ways, if you are unsure which would be best for you personally, you can ask one of our stylists to give you advice that is tailored to you.
Beware though there is a fine line between wet look and greasy looking hair! And it is all down to the amount of product you use.
By applying a little at a time you can make sure that you get the look you was after and save money too!
Ask your Sixth Sense Hairdresser / Barber about EIMI styling products available at our hair salon in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham.
- Watch Your Colouring
Dying your hair isn’t just for the girls, it can be a great way to help you cover your grey hairs without drawing undue attention to them.
Take a tip from the ladies and make sure to pick a hair dye that will not only cover your grey but will blend to your natural colour making it difficult to tell you dyed in the first place!
But it isn’t just for covering up grey’s, there are plenty of reasons you could have to change the colour of your hair, but one thing you must remember is that there are a lot of good products out there to help you out without making you look like you have just dipped your head in some paint.
Aftercare is important too, dying your hair can leave it feeling dry and brittle feeling, especially if you dye your hair regularly, a good conditioner can help combat and even prevent these problems from the beginning.
Why not ask your Sixth Sense Barber / Hairdresser about men’s hair colour when you’re next in our Sutton Coldfield Salon.
- Spend Some Money
All right, so you might not be seeing how this one might help you right now but honestly spending a bit more money on a decent barber will save you both money and time.
Not only will a good barber know how to treat your hair but they will also be able to tell you how to manage it. The knowledge alone that a good stylist can impart to you is worth the extra money by itself.
It’s more than just sitting down while someone gets a pair of preset number 2 dubbers out and moves them around the back of your head. This is all well and good when necessary or if this is the style you want, but if you want more style and finesse then you need to willing to splash out a little more!
The Sixth Sense Hair Team have recently trained in advance barbering including skin fades and technical clipper work by one of UK’s leading Barbering schools; ask your stylist for something different when you’re next in the chair.
- Tell Your Hair’s Life Story
One of the most important things to do for your hair is to talk about it and I mean specifically to your barber.
A haircut for one person might not suit another, and if you don’t speak up, you might end up with a hair style that doesn’t suit you.
A good barber or stylist should be able to take several things into consideration before cutting or styling your hair and with your help they will be able to help you get the cut that is right for your hair type and even facial shape and tone.
Don’t be afraid of listening to your stylist either, just remember how much hair they will have cut and styled in their career and then it isn’t hard to see that they will have a lot of experience and knowledge in the art of making hair look it’s best.
