Trust us, there’s more to short hairstyles for men than meets the eye. (Note: We will be updating this article regularly so check back each month for new styles.)
EXPERT TIPS: Anthony Nader – RAW Hair Salon Sydney
#1 Texture texture and more texture is the secret to keep your short precision hair cut looking fantastic and in shape for longer. Ask your hairstylist to cut more texture into your next haircut, then you can get more leverage and create even more cool hair shapes on top.
#2 For the days you want to go that choppy dishevelled look and think (Sam Webb H&M Spring 2014 collection campaign here), get yourself a tub a moulding paste and this will make you look campaign worthy.
#3 For the days you want to go on the smoother route, go get yourself a bottle of Kiel’s Silk Groom.
EXPERT TIPS: Phoenix Thomson – American Crew All Star
#1 Keeping your hair short can often become less than exciting if you don’t keep a little length to work with. My advice for this season is keeping a look versatile, with added length on top.
#2 Being able to morph your short look into a more groomed and dapper shape can be as easy as using a product with a high shine and shaping with a comb to create a smoother finish. Try drying American Crew Firm Hold Gel into the hair to give support and finish off with a small amount of American Crew Pomade wiped over the surface to keep the hair in place, and create a high shine result.
#3 Short hair does mean more visits to the salon to keep the hairline in shape and any unwanted neck hair at bay. Keeping your appointments to a four weekly routine will ensure your look is always fresh.
