We pride ourselves in helping all of our clients get the style fix they want and love providing the inspiration for a new you. That’s why we’ve put together some long awaited style ideas for the gents among you with longer locks. Even if you’ve currently got short hair, perhaps you’ll find a fantastic reason to start growing again. We dare you to be different!

1. The man bun

Ponytails are so passé! Update your long locks with a sophisticated man bun. It may sound strange, but man buns perfectly compliment the rugged look when teamed with a great beard and a strong jawline. Why not give this modern trend a try today?

2. Sleek and straight

If you’ve got the hair type for it, you can never go wrong with a sleek smooth style. Centre or side part your hair and use frizz taming serum to stop any fly-aways. This style also looks great juxtaposed next to a beard. Indie rock band, anyone?

3.  Rock star

Want to turn heads with your hair? This hairstyle is perfect for gents that love to command the attention of the whole room. To achieve this style, we like to blow dry for volume, then run straightening irons through and add a little texture cream at the ends to give it that messy edge.

4. Life’s a beach

More of a low maintenance hair person? The surfer look is always a winner! To get this look, add a texturising spray or some mousse to your hair and scrunch it through. For a real ‘day spent in the waves’ look, find a salt water based texture spray.

5. Skater

This style will work well for the majority of hair and face types. Hair is not exceedingly long and has an extreme side parting which creates a sweeping fringe of hair. Use texture spray to encourage those messy ends and then chill out with your laid-back look that will always be cool.
