The Men's Room

What a good haircut is really supposed to do!

Barber1Every guy gets one… right? Somewhere, right now, there are guys describing their desired haircut to their barbers. And for good reason, because every guy wants their haircut to look good on them.

There are generally 2 schools of thought about haircuts…

  1. A haircut is supposed to compliment your overall style.
  2. A haircut is supposed to dictate your overall style.

Personally, I side more with #1 because the average man typically has only two wardrobe styles – going out & work. Not to mention, for many there’s no “wiggle room” in their corporate dress code, so the hairstyle typically follows suit making the “going out” hairstyle fairly similar to the “work” version.

However, if you live in a city like mine – Los Angeles, you will see that #2 fits perfectly with say, the entertainment industry for example.

Whatever your position, your haircut is something you should be proud of. So make sure you wear it because it fits you, and not because you saw it in a magazine.

    A haircut is not just fashion, its a hygiene and a part of our lifestyle.

    To me getting a haircut mostly consists of getting your sides and back cleaned up. Nobody really cares how long your hair is but the rest has to be clean to show that you are indeed going for that look. The same way an unkempt beard will show that you’re “just letting it go” – so too can shaggy hair without any attention to unsightly man hairs on the neck back of head and sideburns.

    What should I use if I have wavy hair? A comb or a brush?
