A man’s hair is considered to be his pride and joy, and his hairstyle is his personal statement. In fact, most metrosexual men spend as much time (if not more) on their hair as woman do! And, going through a dozen different hairstyles before stepping out has become a big part of most men’s lives. With mens hairstyles changing faster than the four seasons, it’s almost impossible to keep up with the latest trends. But, not to worry, if you’re totally clueless as to what you should do with that ball of fluff in your head, here’s a couple of tips to get you started.
A man apart
For those men who like to don a new style every single day, it’s important to keep your lifestyle, and age, in mind. You should also consider the mandates of your profession or workplace, the amount of time you have to style your hair (without getting late for work), and how much effort you’re ready to invest in your daily look. But, if you feel that there’s nothing much you can do with your existing hair growth, it is almost always helps to go a stylist or barber to get a fresh cut.
If you’re a thoroughbred metrosexual, chances are that you part your hair in such a way that it’s very, very visible. But, when if you’re deciding where to keepthe parting, consider things like the shape of your face, as well as the natural parting in your hair. If you have a round face, something like a middle-partingwould onlyaccentuateits roundness. Inversely, if you have a sharp jawlinewith high cheekbones, an extreme side parting will underlinesuch qualities. And, if you’re someone in between, a parting that is just a few inches off the center of your face would work by default.
Even though most of us have short hair, we men still need something more than mere water and a pocket comb to style our hair. So, applying different types of hair products is always on the cards. Depending on the product you use and the hairstyle you desire, it’s best to apply the styling productsprior to combing your hair.
Lastly, if you are doubtful about your hair, you can always ask the people who you trust about the way you look. Or you could just refer to some mens hairstyle magazines or blogs to get a better idea. And if you are going out, especially to a formal event as a guest or a participant, it is always a good idea to ask someone to help you get the perfect style for the event. Because, like anything else that you wear, your hairstyle is an accessory that should match the rest of your wardrobe.
