As Christmas quickly approaches, many of you may be considering visiting the barbers for a quick trim and styling so that you are looking your best for all the festivities to come. If you are feeling this way, then you aren’t alone, as Christmas Eve is, in fact, one of the most popular days of the year for men to visit their barbers.
So, if you are looking to switch up your style, have a look at our top tips for how to spruce up your look for the Christmas period:
For many of us, the Christmas period brings with it the need to spruce up for a classy Christmas event. Whether you have to go to a fancy office party or new year’s eve event, or you just want to look your best to impress visiting relatives and want a black tie hairstyle to match, then there are several little touches you can make to your hair that are as classic as they are stylish.
Firstly, consider getting a trim just to freshen up your look. Particularly if you haven’t been for a haircut in a while, then this is a great way to make yourself look smarter without having to make any drastic changes.
To give your hair a sharp and tidy look, ask your barber to give you a hard part. Hard parts can be great way to add definition to a short sides and long top cut, and can make almost any haircut look refreshingly modern.
If you are a guy with a pronounced beard looking to make a big splash at any parties you attend this season, then we have a few festive choices that might be right up your street.
The glitter beard: This one is fairly self-explanatory; simply coat your beard in beard oil, then glitter of any colour – though red and green seem particularly festive – and voila! You’ve got yourself a festive style that can be seen from miles away. Just be prepared to find glitter on all your belongings for a good long while afterwards.
The light up beard: Have you ever been told you light up any room you walk into? Try out this festive look and you soon will be! Simply thread a set of Christmas lights through your beard to achieve this far out festive look. The most important thing to remember for this look is to find the kind of lights that don’t heat up – very important if you don’t want your beard to catch fire.
The Christmas tree beard: If attaching lights to your beard seems like a bit of a crazy thing to do, instead consider attaching decorations like small baubles and candy canes to your facial hair using bobby pins to create a miniature Christmas tree you can take anywhere you go. To go the extra mile, you can even tint your beard green to give it that extra realistic Christmas tree look.
You may have seen these types of festive beards now and again over the past couple of years, but they’ve been tipped to make a big impression this year.
