It is no secret that men’s hair and fashion are often overshadowed by their female counterparts. Despite changing trends in men visiting salons, the beauty business has always catered to women first. However, that is not to say that men can’t be pampered, groomed, and treated first class in spas and salons. New hair trends, both in hairstyle and hair removal give guys more reason than ever to flaunt fashion.
The ‘Dos of 2011-2012 Men’s haircuts have taken on a sort of revised throwback style recently and that look is expected to last. Calling on nineteenth century cuts, the more modern styling is a little messier, but cleaner at the same time. Fewer products and more freedom appear to be the keys to keeping up with the trend. This has led to the fringe look of 2010 sticking around. Whether curly or straight, wet or swept, free hanging locks have masculine appeal. Shorter in the back and longer in the front, variations of the hairdo can be crafted to suit nearly every face shape. The wet look invites the unruly, but others choose a more classic side part, much like what would have been seen in the days of Cary Grant. This cut is very versatile and can serve both the teenage schoolboy and the professional quite well. It may even be slicked back for a more groomed and sophisticated look.
Bringing Back Seventies Curl Probably the most influential decade when considering the trends of today was the 1970’s. Especially for men with naturally curly locks, the looks of the seventies can easily be cleaned up to work in 2012. Again, the trick of cutting it shorter in the back while leaving some length in the front. The curls can maintain their natural wild abandon, but still have a slightly more groomed look than the ‘fros of decades past.
Facial Hair Hairs on the head might get the most attention in the press, but handled incorrectly, facial- and body hair can cause quite a stir as well. 2012 is going to be the year of the clean-cut. Magazines, newspapers, and television are swamped with images of men’s baby faces. Austin laser hair removal will likely see an increase in business as men continue to seek the ‘smooth all over look’ in the coming year. However, for those who simply don’t do the freshly shaven look, the opposite side of the spectrum is also being visited. The rough and unruly beard has also been spotted on many occasions recently. This is not the time to go half-way with a goatee or mustache. Instead opt for the all-or-nothing approach to facial hair.
Body Hair With the invention of so many unique hair removal techniques, lush body hair is, and has been, a thing of the past. Men and women alike are recognizing the appeal of a smooth, and nearly hairless body. Men should look to do away with any stray back hair and might even go so far as to lose the chest hair as well, in 2012. Shaving, waxing, and especially laser hair removal will become common phrases in men’s vocabularies in the coming months.
