If you are looking to update your look, changing your hairstyle is a great place to start. And there is good news if you are one of those men who doesnâ€™t want to spend ages styling their hair, as the current shaggy hairstyles for men can be as high, or low, maintenance as you like. For those of you who might not exactly know what a shaggy style is, it is a layered cut, which suits all hair types.
When you think about shaggy hairstyles for men you probably think about the sixties and seventies, but this is no longer true. Celebrities, such as Ashton Kutcher, with his classic shaggy do, have been sporting the look for quite some time now, but the good news is, you don’t need a celebrity income or lifestyle to make it work for you. Given the variety of styles available, when you go to the salon, it’s probably a good idea to take a picture of the hair-do you want, just in case your stylist and you have radically different opinions about what you want. However, be realistic. If you have short, fine hair, you won’t necessarily end up with the same look as a man with thick curly tresses, so it’s a good idea to discuss with your stylist the best styles for your hair type. Another important consideration of your face shape. Again, this is something to discuss with your stylist. Once you’ve had your styling – and don’t be alarmed if your hairdresser comes at you with a razor, it’s quite normal for this sort of cut – you need to get the right styling products to maintain your new trendy look.
Get a good wax or gel, that isn’t too strong, since your hair should be free to swing a little. The maintenance requirements will vary on how long your hair is, but typically a trim every six to eight weeks should be enough.How much time you are willing to spend on your hair will depend on your wishes. From simply letting it dry naturally, with a little mouse or wax, to blow-drying and pomade to add shine, or straightening it to change its character. But that is one of the advantages of the shaggy style, as it is so flexible.
With all the advantages to this style, this is a good time to start checking out the celebrity hair magazines, and updating your look. It might take a little time to decide on your first cut, but after that, you too can join the ranks of celebrities with great hair – and not have to invest too much time in keeping it that way. If you need anymore persuasion, just glancing through a women’s magazine will show you that shaggy hairstyles for men are here to stay!
