From Boys to Men!
Age 1 to 4 most boys will be influenced by there mum. With no social or institutional pressure to comply Mum’s are happy for their boys to have cute natural hairstyles for as long as possible.
Age 4 – 12 there will be far more of a tendency to follow Dad’s style providing he has some left, and a mini me emerges. Going to school for the first time sees the beginning of conformity to rules and out side influences but the young lads hairstyle will not be his concern.
Age 12- 14, boys understand that school has an expectation of how their hair should not look, but they now have a strong urge to express some individuality. Influenced by their peers, celebrity and pop culture, they may now be more interested in where Mum gets her hair Cut and yes he’s noticed your colour. Colour placed in the hair to effect an enhancement or personal statement of style is a huge growing trend among 16 to 30 year old Men and some of these immerging teenagers are daring to experiment in the longer summer holidays. They will start to see the importance of waxes in their hair to develop height and texture as they become more conscious of how they look and what they believe suits them. Some products correctly used control unruly hair and help the young man to wear the styles that the schools find acceptable and minimise any chance that their hair is the subject of unsolicited negative attention. Some of course use products to do the exact opposite which often leads to a quiet chat from their school teacher
The acceptance to the 14- 19 year old young man that a balance between conformity and expression in hair styles needs to be a their responsibility. The most common choice of style is short sides, short back, leaving the top to be longer or textured, worn forward or back to suit head shape and personality. Even the classic pompadour, a style made popular with the young rebels in the 1950’s, (think James Dean or Elvis) is being worn by young business men. Liberal amounts of pomade sees this look taken off the face pushed one way or the other looking very stylish worn with a suit or left casual to drop forward onto the face when you want to kick back at the weekends. Having curly hair myself I am pleased to see that curly hairstyles for men have sustained their earlier comeback and now being worn with more confidence as the guys receive greater social verification especially from the opposite sex. We are seeing less of the contrived forward sweep around the face glued in place and being replaced by a more relaxed deconstructed shaggy razor finish. The footballer’s favourite seems to be the Mohawk which looks very aggressive and not everyone’s choice; however this has spawned the Faux hawk. This is more adaptable and although it takes its inspiration from the Mohawk with its accentuation of hair through the top and centre back of the head it does not come with the shaved sides. With the short fringe blended into the short sides it allows the accentuation of textured length through the very top and down the back but you to can style it different for a more conservative ‘American Ivey league’ look
A macho- centric menu of techniques focusing on lightning and brightening are what resonate most with our Male Guests. They are in search of individualising there hair but with subtle, natural looking low maintenance colour. Highlights and slices can still be effective but on short hair, comb through colours, shoe-shine and surf-shine effects dominate.
Expertly handled grey camouflage is a priority year round for the discerning gent who requires a slight lift in natural tone, or blending of natural depth to camouflage the signs that see their boyish colour disappearing and replaced by emerging grey temples. This Guy invariably likes speed more than technique when it comes to there hair! They don’t want to add an hour to their appointment and therefore our offering of speedy shade rejuvenation at the back wash only taking 5-10 minutes is a fabulous proposition. Choosing the right colour and applying the right shade is so important as this colour needs to undetectable, and therefore not go too dark but just as important not reflect gold or red tones in the sun. We use Camo Colour for Men by Redken but there are other professional brands.
