HOW TO DEAL WITH GREY HAIR

Have you woken up one one morning and noticed that your once lustrous locks suddenly seem as though they’ve been sprinkled with a dusting of salt and pepper? That my friend is just one of the effects of getting older. Although you might feel as though the rapid onset of grey hair signifies the point life that your days of youth have officially come to a screeching halt, do not despair. Man of Many is here to help. In order to figure out how to deal with grey hair, we have consulted some of our most trusted grooming experts to give their best advice on how to go grey with style, class and dignity. Here’s what they had to say:

Anthony Nader – International Stylist and Founder RAW Anthony Nader Salon, Surry Hills
Do you really want my honest answer? #Embrace. I think there’s nothing more stylish than a man with a flicker of silver/greys showing up. We have so many guys that come to the salon and they always take home a silver based shampoo as this cleanses the hair of any impurities and brassiness. Think George Clooney here guys, that gunmetal steel hue that is looks expensive and classy.

Murdock London Master Barber
Don’t panic. Don’t be afraid to keep things natural if you’re starting to notice an influx of greying. Certainly don’t rush to buy and over-do applications of hair dye, or even worry about receding hairlines for that matter. Good grooming upkeep should be followed to enhance, not to completely alter the way you look. Use the right products (ideally with natural ingredients instead of harsh chemicals) in moderation – shampoo, conditioner, styling product and you’ll probably find that you soon actually warm to any natural change in colour.

Discovering those first grey hairs is guaranteed to be a shock but there are a number of ways you can manage the salt and pepper look. Firstly, and most importantly – stay away from permanent hair dye. Grown out grey roots on men is a terrible look and I mean terrible. If you want to cover up grey hair with dye, opt for a semi-permanent hair dye that will gradually fade and blends those bad boys. If colouring your hair is not your thing, try a shorter, edgier haircut for a youthful look. Short sides will expose greys so ask the barber/hairdresser for a little textured length on top and this will blend your natural and grey hair seamlessly.

Phoenix Thomson – Stylist at American Crew
Grey hair can be distinguished and dapper, but it can also be ageing. If you want to embrace it, keep the natural white highlights looking cool, by using American CREW Gray Shampoo. It will keep them bright, and get rid of any unwanted tones.

To mute it down a little and lose a few years I recommend visiting your hairdresser for a grey blending service. American CREW precision blend will tone the grey enough to blend it with your natural and is over in only 5 minutes.

A SIMPLE GUIDE TO MEN’S HAIRSTYLING TERMINOLOGY

You know how the men’s hair game works. You drop by to see your stylist, sildenafil picture in hand of the latest celebrity hairstyle you’ve seen lurking about. The talented Mr. Scissorhands asks what you’re after and you cordially flash them the picture without any further spiel.

Choosing the right hairstyle doesn’t need to be one-dimensional. Contrary to common belief amongst men, drugs choosing the right hairstyle can be insightful, remedy engaging and most importantly, simple.

We’re all for education here at D’Marge so we took it to one of the best in Sydney to run you guys through all the terminology that matters in men’s hair styling. Anthony Nader of RAW teaches you what to ask for and exactly what to expect for your next perfect cut.

Dust Off

This basically means the haircut you have when you’re not having a haircut. It involves ‘dusting’ the very edges off without anyone noticing you’ve been sitting in the hairdresser’s hot seat.

Texturising

This means releasing the weight by scissors or a razor where needed throughout the haircut to give it a variation of different hair lengths. Ultimately the result is to give an ‘airiness’ feel to the final cut.

Blunt Edges

Ask for this one when you want your ends to feel super clean and freshly snipped so there’s a perfect blunt edge.

Keeping The Sides Square

It’s exactly as the name suggests here guys. Think like a square shape with the added strength and weight on the sides above your ears. This will leave the sides heavier as opposed to having a rounded shape.

Rounding Off The Sides

This one’s perfect for the guys who find that their hair strands grow too thick and fast on the sides. Rounding off the sides will knock it back more so than staying square on the sides.

Quiff

You want rebellion? You got it. Add a dash of rebelliousness in the front with your fringe. Bear in mind you’ll need length so you can mess it up into an Elvis style scroll.

Dishevelled

Mess your hair with care is the easiest way to put it. This basically means a care-free, soft, uncontrived and lived-in look. Think anything but polished and restricted.

Point Cutting

This one’s a term used for cutting in triangles (so to speak) in the ends of the hair to give it different shorter and longer lengths. The final result you’ll see here is a style with more volume.

Fade Out

Fade is the classic barbering technique where the hair goes from tight/super short around the hairline to fading up the head getting gradually longer. Extremely popular amongst men today.

Soft Hairline

This one’s about keeping the hair around your hairline more natural and soft by working with the natural hairline. This technique avoids the malpractice of cutting in a bold blunt outline which can look artificial.
