Unless you are on the cutting edge of fashion it is hard to know when your hairstyle is outdated. A good rule of thumb is if you have been rocking the same hairdo for over a decade chances are you could use and update.
• The Bieber – Unless you are under the age of 18 do not attempt the Justin Bieber swoosh.
• The Mullet – Business in the front and party in the back has not been fashionable since the 80’s (were not that convinced it was that great then) so stay away from the mullet.
• The “faux” hawk – The faux hawk was kind of cool when P.Diddy first took it up but now that ship has sailed. Plus it’s really hard to pull that look off if you have a serious job. C’mon man!
• Overly frosted tips – Just think early Ryan Seacrest and don’t go there.
• Slightly spiked tousled hair – Think Brad Pitt with the shorter spike. Stylish but not overdone.
• Shortly Cut Hair – This an ideal cut for younger as well as older men. It’s great for sports or thinning hair.
• The Parted Layered Look – George Clooney rocks this look and it is a great look for men with straight hair.
• Longer Layered Cut – Orlando Bloom is a great example for longer wavy hair.
The key to getting a great hairstyle is doing your homework ahead of time. Check out some pictures online or in a magazine and have an idea of what you want before you go in for your appointment. Make sure the look you are going for is compatible with your hair type and your lifestyle.
