What's trending with men's hairstyles?
In a recent Men's Grooming class with Bumble and Bumble instructor, Nico, we got the low down on what's walking the streets of the fashion capital of the world, New York!
Of course, the trends are ever changing, especially in the Big Apple, but it seems as though this classic look is here to stay. Take a look!
The trend is short sides and long top.
This style can be very versatile and be worn many different ways.
- It can have a clean fade, with the top longer and groomed.
- It can be more grown out and cut all with straight razor to give more texture.
- It can have a bald fade, with an textured undercut on top.
The options are endless, ensuring this classic cut will be sticking around for years to come!
For your clients that seem to be stuck in a rut, slowly mention to them small changes they could make each appointment, and let them know clear reasons why it would be a good idea. It will make it less scary for them to make tweaks to their style.
For example, I have a male client who was feeling stuck, so I began introducing him to the idea of a fade. He loved it! A couple appointments later, I introduced him to the undercut on top. He loved that too. Then few appointments after that I talked him into getting a hard part. It was such an exciting journey and now he is thrilled and has more confidence! He now has an unusual, edgy cut, whereas before he had the same old cookie cutter do.
So moral of the story: get inspired, immerse yourself in the current trends, and encourage clients to try new things and see your business take off to a whole new level!!
