Grooming
14th August 2017
As we approach a new, colder season, your first thought might be to cover your hair up with a hat for the next couple of months. You are wrong. Not an opinion, just fact. As we approach autumn/winter you should be considering revamping your hairstyle, not covering up.

But if you’re stuck for ideas on what to do with your locks, then let Denis Robinson (Creative Director at first-class barbers Ruffians) let you in on what men’s hairstyles are going to be big for AW17.

Mid Length Quiff

What to ask for:

A long graduated haircut, loose scissor taper at the nape, heavy graduation building up towards the crown – all connected except for the fringe area which needs to be disconnected to keep longer.

How to style:

Apply beach waves salt spray to the roots at the front to give volume, finger dry directing the heat to the root area while lifting with fingers, this will help to give the volume needed, sides and back should be dried flat using the nozzle attachment on the dryer. Once all dried use a little L’Oreal Super Dust on the quiff area to give lift, then mix a little pomade and paste together and sweep back using hands, be careful not to get the pom/paste mix on the roots as it will go flat

Full Fringe Fade

What to ask for:

High and tight skin fade on the back and sides, short and choppy on top with a blunt cut fringe

How to style:

Dry flat pushing from crown to fringe – to finish apply whatever product you feel gives result you like:

Pomade for shine

Paste for movement

Clay for a dry textured look

Feather Cut

What to ask for:

A highly textured cut with a ‘70s feel. For best results hair should be washed and dried first, then your barber would cut using texturising techniques like the razor and point cutting to remove weight, leaving the exterior soft and loose and cutting enough weight out to make the ends loose and hazy.

How to style:

Apply salt spray to towel dried hair and finger dry following the shape of the head.

To finish, shake a little Super dust over your hair like you are adding salt to a meal and then mess up using hands. It should be a soft messy look, so don’t try to over groom.

Millennial Curtains

What to ask for:

A modern twist on a ‘90s rave cut, this can be adapted to different lengths. The one in this photo is a mid length style, cut using a round layering technique but can also look very effective with a faded undercut.

How to style:

Dry the hair forward and flat using a paddle brush, by drying everything forward and flat then sweeping back you will get a little lift at the centre parting. the best finishing product is hairspray. Spray it onto your hands, rub hands to make the product a little drier then push hair back of the face, the product will adhere to the hair, with the front sections getting the most applied which is necessary. Suggested hairspray: L’Oreal Tecni.Art Air Fix.

Curly Fade

What to ask for:

A low fade with steep graduation leaving fullness under the crown and round layer on top.

How To Style:

Apply mousse to towel dry hair then dry using a diffuser (bowl attachment for the hairdryer) to encourage natural movement. Don’t touch the hair while drying. However when dry apply a little styling paste to hands and run through the mid lengths and ends to loosen up and soften the style.
