The Modern Age of Barbering

The men's grooming industry is booming. Partly due to hit TV shows like Mad Men and Peaky Blinders, the hairstyles of our grandfathers are back in fashion. Modern men are loving their hair again. How you cut and style your hair speaks volumes about who you are and where you’re going. So what's the right style for you? Kaleigh Walker, stylist at Vintage shares a round up of this season's on-trend cuts and how to style them.

While the side part has gotten most of the attention over the last few years, there’s still something to be said for the classic brushed back look. To accomplish it, you want a layered cut on top with a little bit more length in the front, and about an inch on the sides. (You can go longer if you’re Jake Gyllenhaal.) Use a gel serum or a light pomade to comb it back. Once it’s partially dry, run your fingers through it to break it up a bit. Beware though, too much length on top, or too much product, and you’ll end up in ‘80s territory.

With ultra thick, ultra wavy hair, your options are a little more limited. If you don’t want to go with much length on top, a fade cut with an inch to an inch-and-a-half on top is about the most versatile – not to mention easy-to-manage – style there is. And the best part? You’ll only need a minimal amount of product to tame it.

For guys with straighter hair who don’t want their hair too short – i.e. no skin showing – the side sweep is the way to go. Stick with a scissor cut on the sides, about an inch-and-a-half in length, and then cut it to medium length on top. This style works best with a minimal amount of product, like a light styling cream. Basically, you want to be able to run your fingers through it for that natural and easy look.

If you have curly hair and a more angular face, go modern with a round cut. This one’s longer on top and the sides, and then fades down to the skin. If it starts looking a little bushy, it’ll be pretty obvious you need a trim.

As far as short hairstyles go, this one is a bit higher maintenance – but it’s worth it. The biggest issue is keeping that volume in the front. For the cut, ask your barber to go shorter on the sides,  with layered length on top. To style it, comb pomade back from your forehead while your hair is wet. Then break out the blow dryer and blow it back and up in order to create some height. Once it’s dry, use your fingers and a bit more product to give it separation. And stay out of the rain.

Facial hair has rarely been as hot as it is now and with the cooler breezes about to hit our shores there’s no better time to experiment with a new look. Whether a hipster moustache, sexy designer stubble or an impressive ZZ beard is your thing, grooming and great after care are an absolute must. Any barber worth their salt should be able to give you a pretty darn good haircut but true art lies in their skill with a cut throat razor to give the closest of shaves.
