Spring Summer Trends 2017

Textured Quiff

Just when you thought you’d seen all there was when it came to quiffs – they’re back for SS17. The textured quiff is trending the catwalks but you’ll be happy to know it’s a much more low maintenance style than your traditional slicked quiff.

You’ll still need to keep the sides and back of your hair short and the top longer than usual with a bit of texture cut into it.

The key is to layer up on the products, so start with a Salt spray by Tigi (Catwalk Range) or Alternator spray by American Crew or the new to these shores Clubman Pinaud Supreme Spray on towel-dried hair. To hold the style in place, apply a pea size amount of Layrite Cement or Uppercut Matt Pomade and work it through the roots to the tip of the hair. Whilst drying, try twisting the hair in sections, upwards away from your face.

Side Parting

A timeless look, still suitable for gents who have to rock a suit to the office every day as well as your more casual creative types. Most hair will naturally have a parting anyway and for gents it’s usually a side part unless there’s a cows lick. Leave hair long and heavy on top but have the side with the parting taken in a little tighter and higher. A clipper grade 3 and lower from there will give you that modern twist.

Use a round quiff brush and a hairdryer on medium heat to sweep the majority of the hair to the preferred side. After you are happy with the overall shape, blitz with cold hair to freeze. Then use a comb to add a straight parting and comb the hair down and back. Once it’s in shape and fully dry, add a pea size amount of Uppercut Deluxe Pomade for a nice shine and strong hold, or for a more natural look try their newest product on the block, the Matt Pomade.

Curls

It’s finally time to embrace those natural curls. The longer the locks the better, as we’ve seen at Balenciaga’s catwalk show. Start styling with a base product like Tigi Catwalk Curl Cream on towel dried hair and for those men with a little more time on their hands try getting yourself a nice hairdryer/diffuser combination. This will tighten up those natural curls even more for a shape that will hold day and night.

The Crop

Alternatively, if you have straight hair then maybe the fringe is a better opinion for you. We recommend keeping the back and sides short – use clippers for more of a contrasting drastic style, or scissor cut for a softer texture all around.

Keeping the crown long and heavy is the key; combing it forward with a pea size amount of Uppercut Featherweight should be enough to keep it in place. Texture needs to be cut into the fringe so when dried forward, hair should remain pretty flat but with natural movement.

All of these hairstyles are shown in our previous videos below.
