My Man Says Goodbye To Barbershop!!!

My husband had terrible hairstyle... He used to go to an old-fashioned barbershop, and his hairstyle has always been that way for over 10 years already, and I am so sick of his look... Last month, after long discussions and debates on haircuts, I was able to convince him to try having his hair styled by my personal stylist... I took him to one of the best salons here and let him have a real, good haircut... The hairstylist told me that what he did to my husband's hair was just a "preparation" for a new and better style for the upcoming weeks... He said that he cannot just make a new style right there and then because he had to first know the growth pattern of his hair, the movement, and everything... I thought, ummm, makes sense actually... Of course it is a lot easier for him to style a hair that he has cut and styled before. So he told us to come back after 3 weeks... That way, he could easily trace his cutting path, and from there, create a new style...

So our 3 weeks came... I noticed that the hairstylist was right... This time, my husband's hair looked a lot different from the previous style... Now, it has become more flattering and a lot more trendy.... It's about time!!!!

You see, not all hairstyles work for everyone... Like shoes, hair can either make or break an outfit too... And actually, hairstyle has something to do with the lifestyle and attitude of the person. Here are some tips from www.askmen.com. Remember ladies, sometimes, it takes the convincing power of a woman to make her man look gorgeous...

1. Long and Layered


A little messy, but carefully structured, the top-heavy layered cut is a great no-fuss hairdo. With your disheveled bangs and strategically layered hair at the back, your “I don’t care” look is really screaming, “I made it fashionably messy on purpose!” A complete wash-and-wear style, achieving the appearance of organized chaos in the morning should take you no time at all.

Face shape: Square, rectangle, or oblong.

What it says about him: Just like Johnny Depp, he's creative, low-maintenance kind of guy with a trendy aptitude.

2. Buzz Cut


Notorious as the quickest hairstyle to create, the buzz cut helps define the face and makes the jaw line appear wider. While this clean-shaven look has been synonymous with balding men and Armed Forces recruits, it has also become a popular, fashion-forward hairstyle of choice for many men. It lends a neat and tidy air of sophistication, and by judging women’s reactions to such “buzzed” men as Wentworth Miller, the look has become quite a fetish for the fairer sex.

Face shape: Oblong or round.

What it says about him: He's an organized, in-charge man, who breeds a strong aura of dominance, class and sophistication.

3. Short and Tidy




While trendy black men may still sport variations of the traditional afro made famous in the ‘60s and ‘70s, some are choosing to go modern with a much shorter twist to their do. As sported by Lenny Kravitz, this short (but not too short) and tidy style is the same length all around and is a great way to add some urban flair to your mane.

Face shape: Oblong

What it says about him: The contemporary man -- he likes to change with the times, but maintains an affinity and deep appreciation for vintage style.


4. Long and Disheveled


Men with curly hair find themselves with very few hairstyle choices that will suit the natural style and texture of their tresses. But, much like the long, layered cut, the long and disheveled look is also gaining widespread popularity -- thanks to the likes of Entourage’s Adrian Grenier -- as men with curly hair are embracing their locks rather than buzzing them off. All you need is a little mousse or pomade to work in the curls, and you’re ready to face the day.

Face shape: Oblong, square or rectangle.

What it says about him:
There's a calm, collected, laidback charm about him.

5. Messy and Textured


The messy and textured look can manifest itself in a variety of ways, but David Beckham
exemplifies the best way to do it. With a clean-cut, classic men’s haircut, add some extreme texture to the top in order to up the style ante. This look is achieved with a neat, organized cut at the back and a longer cut at the top -- rub some pomade through it and push the bangs to one side to get that messy, Beckham-inspired, trend-setting result.


Face shape:
Square

What it says about him: Refined, elegant and fully up to date with today’s trends, but also hiding a bit of a rebellious bad boy under that fantastic hairstyle.

6. The Faux-Hawk



The faux-hawk is a classier twist to the punk-rock inspired Mohawk. The hair on top of the head is combed upward to resemble a small fan, while the hair on the sides is kept short and tidy. Many men with this style opt to incorporate highlights to their hair, but the monochromatic, “natural” look perfected by Colin Farrell is the best way to sport the hawk this year.

Face shape: Oblong, heart-shaped.

What it says about him: A modern man about town; has loads of style, tons of grace and hoards of fashion know-how.


So, were you able to find the hairstyle that suits your beau???

I would if I had one! The boys at my school should look at this, I think about 95% all have long hair! It looks cute on most of them but, boy, does it get annoying and unoriginal after a while!

I know!!! I think all of them look the same!!! They really should know that there are still other hairstyles that are cool and trendy, and not just the long haired look!!!
