We have qualified barbers in our hair salon in Essex who will be happy to offer you advice on current men’s hair trends and which one would best suit you.
Our stylists who will consider your hair type, lifestyle and face shape when talking with you – the importance of face shape can’t be overlooked and should be one of the main deciding factors when selecting your hairstyle. Find out what type of hairstyle is best for your face shape you have below…
Square: Traditionally perceived as a strong rugged face shape. Softer hairstyles are best to balance square faces and full length heavy fringes are not recommended.
Oval: If you have an oval shaped face then you’re very lucky! Nearly all hair styles will suit an oval face because of the proportions and symmetry of the shape. However, a full length fringe should be avoided as they can make your oval face look round.
Oblong: This face shape suits a wide range of styles, however there are some that you should avoid. Stay away from short hair on the sides or swept back hair on top as this will make your face look long.
Heart: A longer hair style will balance out a heart shaped face. If you would like a shorter style then we would recommend perhaps growing a beard to even out your face.
Round: Round faces can be difficult to choose hair styles for – they can lack strong features and so you do not want your hair to detract too strongly from your face. Try to avoid hair coming onto your face as this will only make it look more round.
Diamond: Men with diamond face shapes can sometimes look gaunt – we would recommend avoiding short hair, longer hair with some shape around the face would be the ideal style for a diamond shaped face.
Triangle: This is the hardest face shape to choose a hairstyle for. In order to balance a wide jaw line we recommend longer hair with plenty of added layers.
We’ve seen an increase in men choosing to colour their hair, so if you want to liven up your hair colour or maybe colour over grey hairs, book in for a hair colour consultation with one of our colour experts.
Adding colour to your hair can make you appear younger and give your look more interest. We can make your hair colour as natural or as bold as you want. If you want to hide any grey hairs, we can offer a complete cover up or simply camouflage grey hair with a look that is both natural and subtle.
A top quality gent’s haircut is essential if you want to make the right impression, so if you’re not sure which hairstyle you want, your experienced stylist will talk to you about the look you want to achieve and offer you style advice for when you leave the salon. Perhaps you could have the latest quiffed men’s hairstyle with a fade, a disconnected style, a texturised men’s hair style or a simple trim?
