While the temptation to throw on a peak hat and call that your hairstyle is great, just taking a little more effort and finding out which styles are current and which match the shape of your face can do wonders for your image and esteem. Not to mention giving your sense of style a much needed boost.
Should a man change his hairstyle every season?
Why not? Clothes change, so does hair. Everything’s in sync. Don’t forget, though: Only go for hairstyles that suit your face and features. Just because the faux hawk is in style one season, it doesn’t mean a man with a long face should wear it.
Are there age limits for trendy hairstyles?
Age is pretty irrelevant — it’s all about the person carrying the look. There are some older accountants and some lawyers who walk around looking pretty trendy, so age has nothing to do with it. Obviously, your grandfather shouldn’t have a faux hawk, but if a 50-year-old is in retail, and it fits his style, he might be able to pull it off.
What are the biggest hairstyle mistakes men make?
The biggest mistake people make is choosing the wrong products. For example, water-based products, known as pomades, add moisture to your hair, so it’s a great product for people who have dry hair. Products that are matte (that don’t have much shine) are for people with normal hair. If you put shine on normal hair, you get a greasy look. You have to balance everything. So people with dry hair should be using a pomade to balance out their hair and make it look normal. And a guy with normal hair should be using a matte product.
Also avoid adding too much product. A product should be put on when the hair is dry — never wet. You should always use the right shampoo for your hair and, of course, condition regularly. For example, if you have fine, limp hair, don’t use a moisturizing shampoo; it’ll make it flat and stuck to your head. Instead, use a shampoo for oily and limp hair.
