3 HAIRSTYLES FOR AUTUMN 2017
By Chris Sayer, 16 September 2017
A cropped, blunt fringe
‘It’s good for squarer facial shapes,’ says Denis. ‘You want tight and faded sides with this style. Tell your barber you’ll be wearing this look forward with a blunt fringe, and ask them to create a loose texture through the top.’
Style it by applying paste to damp hair, and dry forward using the nozzle on your hairdryer.
A loose, textured quiff
Yep, you’ll need to wake up five minutes earlier each morning to get that loose texture look going – with a combo of backwards blow-drying and a rough but precise application of styling paste – but damn, it’ll be worth it. Want in?
‘Ask for the traditional quiff haircut but explain you're going to be “wearing it loose”,’ says Denis. ‘Your barber will remove some weight and chop down into the length so the hair can be worn looser. The sides are pretty much up to you – this can be worn with a variety of lengths from tight fades to sweeping length tucking behind the ear.’
It’s ideal for mid-length locks, although fear not if you’re not quite there yet: ‘If you don’t yet have the length for this look, let your barber know you plan on rocking curtains, and they can start to create the style to grow into. Ensure the back and sides are kept much shorter, or if you want to go for a dramatic look, ask for an undercut.
‘At home, dry the hair forward and flat using a paddle brush then sweep it back to achieve a little lift at the centre parting. Then, spray hairspray onto your hands, rub them together to make the product a little drier, and push hair back off the face.’
