There’s nothing like the promise of a new season to make men want to clean up their hair styles. Spring 2014 brings a return to classic barbering style – clean sharp lines – with a twist. Here’s an update from Michael Anthony Salon’s Mickey Bolek:
Your hair makes a statement about you. More than wardrobe, your hairstyle is your distinguishing feature. If you work in an office you will want a professional look; if not, or after hours, you can try out some of the trendier hairstyles. The good news is that this season’s hottest men’s haircut styles are versatile enough to be both clean cut and edgy.
The Undercut Has Fringe on Top
The undercut – close cropped back and sides with long on top – looks good on just about everyone and is versatile enough to accommodate many stylistic variations. There is literally something for everyone in this basic cut. Any great hairstyle is a combination of cut and styling. Start with the best basic cut and work with your stylist to craft some unique looks that you can wear for work and play.
- Style slick, straight back or to one side.
- Add a side part – vintage Mad Men style – or take it to the next level with an angular cut.
- Keep short crisp sides and with fringe heavy and long for a modern pompadour.
- Exaggerate your fringe for a truly unique style with a quiff – a combination of 1950’s style pompadour, flat top and bit of Mohawk.
