Perfect Trends 2015 – Men's Hair by Alexander Jaime

So your not quite sure if you are hipster or preppy? We have put together a short Trend Report of the modern hairstyles that keep you looking perfect in any climate.

 

This style defines the guy who likes balance and a little bit of flare. Something that can be worn with the most discerning sharp suit, but come the weekend when the ripped jeans and white v-neck is called upon it adapts.

Don’t be fooled by the softer look.. you still can be a ball buster … but commit to it. Classic parted high sheen/shine. Good clipper work on the bottom of the head leading up to a nice proportion of hair on top. This can be worn in all directions. Best styled when dry avoid the mobsterlook. Be it a polo or a cracking collar this haircut will get people taking you seriously.  A touch of facial hair on this one could be the winner.. but don’t go overbeard….

 

Well the curls can get the girls.. you don’t need a guitar and a motor bike, the right amount of shape and balance you could pull off a larger curl all over, or try a classic cut on the underneath with a slight build up of weighted curls on top.. Product is key... layer layer, layer that product and style it like you don’t care... you might just pull it off.

 

Tight, short but not completely rude. High quality haircut not just with clippers, but to actually work with the shape of your head. Faded our lines and impeccable tapers. The  slightest increase in length but still keeping a curved edge through the round of the head leading to the top. Dry finish, matt paste and waxes.  Respect your look and keep this trimmed every 3-4 weeks.
