Toronto Men's Fashion Week has kicked off this week! With the last line up of shows going on this evening, we've put together some of our favorite hair looks that have hit the runway so far!
- We'll start by saying you need a good barber to get the proper fade on the sides of your head. If you're not sure what to ask for when you're in the barber's chair then ask for a fade on the sides starting on a level 2 clipper and fade up to a 4, your stylist will know exactly what to do after that!
- For this look just run a medium hold pomade through your hair in the direction you like or in the direction your barber sets your part (on the model his part is on the left side). Try Triumph & Disaster's Coltrane Clay.
- If your hair is curly or wavy this is a great style for you - short on the sides and unstructured on the top. Start with a lotion that controls frizz and will help define the waves like Baxter of California's Grooming Lotion. Use your fingers to tousle it in to place and let your damp hair dry.
- Use a little hairspray to keep it all in in place once dry. Try Bedhead For Men.
Hip And Bone
- If you prefer to keep your hair long make sure you're using something that won't make it bushy or fro-like. An easy way is to start with a mousse (I like Morrocan Oil's Volumizing Mousse) on damp hair.
- After your hair drys a little use a sea salt spray like Evo Salty Dog Salt Spray and scrunch/tousle your hair a bit and let it dry for perfectly messy beachy hair.
- For a structured pompadour you'll need a haircut to establish the shape. Once that's out of the way start with almost dry hair and apply a gel like Jack Black's Body Building Gel and work it in with your fingers. Use a comb to define your part and to sweep your hair upward and back. Focus extra strokes on your bangs to build height. If your hair is heavy or you like extra height, use a hair dryer on your damp hair first and blow dry upward, then use gel to hold it in place
- Finish with a little hair spray to keep your hair in place and lock down fly-aways. Got2B Glued Blasting Freeze Hairspray is super strong and long lasting.
