Strands of hair, not complete colouring
Each year brings its share of new trends. Especially in terms of hairstyle. If we have already given you a first glimpse of the most fashionable cuts for summer 2020 and Get out of your comfort zone with a new mens hair color!, gentlemen, know that there is one style that is making a comeback: coloured locks of hair.
Be careful, we are not talking about totally changing your look ( colourings are there for that ) but rather to give character and more depth to your current hairstyle. On fine hair and scattered hair, strands also have the advantage of giving an impression of volume. Yes, it is also a real tip for men who are starting to go bald!
In short, here are our top tips if you want to embrace this trend this year. So don’t skip the appointment with your hairdresser and Get some tips about Gel, Wax or Styling Mousse: How To Choose?!
A good way to perfect your look
To keep a natural hairstyle, while taking care of its look, bet on strands of hair close to your natural shade. So, for brown hair, prefer caramel or chocolate tones. Conversely, blondes can opt for honey or sand tones.
Finally, you can opt for a “colour block” style which consists of making large strands on the top of your head. The effect is guaranteed… but much less discreet than the scattered wicks. This look is not necessarily easy to assume if it is the first change!
The important thing is not to stray more than 3 shades from your base colour. To avoid making mistakes, at the risk of appearing ridiculous, it is better to turn to a hairdresser who will know how to adopt the perfect colouring according to your hair: it is not because Neymar wears pink hair that you should do it as much! And we repeat, the idea is to bring touches of colour, not a radical change of colour.
The wicks bring a touch of modernity to your hairstyle. In addition, they will be particularly highlighted with a long cut on the top and shaved on the sides. A little wax to tame your locks, and voila! In order not to mismatch, you can opt for a dandy-rock look, with a leather biker jacket and a Liberty shirt, for example!
How to maintain your locks when you are a man?
Who says studied hairstyle obviously implies regular maintenance of it! We advise you to make an appointment once a month with your hairdresser, in order to shorten your lengths and redo your locks.
For those who are not cold-eyed – and who are above all confident in their talents as a colourist – they can provide themselves with a kit to make their locks themselves at home.
However, in browns, this requires prior bleaching, a technique that we advise you to leave in the hands of a hairdressing professional!
