Tips, Tricks, and Inspiration for Short Hairstyles
For most men, having short hair is a necessity for work. Keeping your hair well maintained and groomed makes you look more professional, prepared, and handsome. The problem for most men is they either have the wrong haircut for their face structure and body type, or they simply don’t know how to properly style their hair. For men who visit 18|8 Barrington, determining what hairstyle looks best isn’t an issue because our expert stylists find the perfect haircut for each individual on a case-by-case basis. As for styling, these extra tips and tricks are sure to give you the exact look you’re looking for in your haircut.
Texture Gives Versatility
Adding texture to your hair when getting a cut has a few benefits. The most obvious one is that it gives your hair extra body and a natural look. If you are looking for a natural, beach hair look, texturing is the way to go. Another advantage to texture is that it allows you to style your hair multiple ways, extending the life of a haircut.
Keep Some Length Up Top
When most guys think of a short haircut, they think short everything, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Leaving some length up top gives you more to work with and makes your hair less boring, allowing versatility to mix it up from time to time.
Different Products Give A Different Look
Most men only buy one hair product and call it a day. Only using one product limits what you can do with your hair and keeps you from finding a product that works best for you. 18|8 Barrington carries a range of different products to choose from and if you’re totally lost we can also help you find one that will be good for what you’re looking for too.
Mix and Match Products
Alas, there’s no such thing as a perfect product. Products with a matte finish tend to hold for a long time and can give your hair volume while formulas that are shiny tend to only encourage your hair to stay in place. If you’re looking for a high hold and shiny look, why not use both! Rub in a high hold product to get the overall shape you’re looking for while you air dry or blow dry your hair, and then finish it off with a product with a higher shine. Just make sure to go easy when adding product. You can always add more, but removing can be more difficult.
