4 Spring trends for Men’s hair colour

Women are no longer the only one’s who get to experiment with their hair colour. Men’s fashion is growing more and more accepted in both social and professional circles. Colouring your hair can be a fun way to express your personal style and personality. Whether you want to shock your friends with hot pink hair or add dimension to your locks with subtle highlights, the possibilities are endless. The only thing stopping you from changing it up is yourself (and maybe your boss). If you’re feeling bold, then take the plunge and try out some of these spring colour trends.
Grey/Silver tones
 
Who says you have to grow old to get striking grey hair? Bring out your inner grandpa with silver tones. Grey hair started gaining in popularity last season and has kept on growing (pun intended). Now, it’s hotter than ever with celebrities like Zayn Malik and Mark Ronson rocking it. With your hair shades of grey, you’ll be the silver fox of everybody’s dreams.
 
Pastel colours
 
Women have adopted a style referred to as ‘mermaid hair’. Well, the mermen have finally answered the call of pastels, and what more could anyone want? Pastel locks are high fashion. Pastel colours can be bold or subtle depending on your own preference. The entire message of the pastel movement is to showcase your own true self. Go pink or go blue. The options are as endless as the colours. Be as majestic and as mystifying as you desire.
 
Throwbacks
 
Styles come and go like waves of fashion. Trends seem to come in cycles with new twists added to looks each time they’re revived. So, its no surprise that a retro look of some era is constantly brought back to vogue. Right now, we’re not limited to any decade. If you want to recapture the classic look of the 50’s, or the Punk rocker of the 80’s, you can. Whatever you want—go for it. If you want to evoke the frosted-tips of your boy band fantasies, who’s to say ‘no’? Flaunt your look with confidence and transport everybody to a better time.
 
Balayage
 
Balayage is the technique of highlighting without foils in order to give your hair a more natural look. Think of an “I was on a tropical holiday” hairstyle. Balayaged hair can give your hair more depth without being over obvious, which can be perfect for professional situations or if you just want to dip your toe into the water. If you want to change up your look, but can’t go crazy, balayage is perfect. Since the look blends into your natural hair colour, it grows out beautifully. No need for touch-ups or any maintenance. Balayage is the perfect casual-meets-fashion style.

Maintaining Your Awesome Beard

Maintaining Your Awesome Beard


As the best barbershop in Kensington (that’s not boasting, it’s just a fact), we know everything there is to know about the hair on your head. When you visit us, you won’t just be getting a simple men’s haircut in Kensington, you’ll be getting comprehensively restyled by someone who is an artist in their own right. The days when men’s barbers offered a short back and sides and not much else are long gone. A modern hair salon for men will offer all of the grooming and styling help, advice and treatment that the smart modern gentleman could possibly ask for.

That includes knowing how to look after not just the hair on top of your head, but also the hair on your face as well. It can’t have escaped your notice that we seem to be living through something of a golden age for beards. Everyone, from the hipster behind the counter at your local coffee shop to Premiership footballers and Hollywood A-listers, seems to be taking the plunge and sporting a full set of facial topiary. Since growing a beard in the first place is generally quite simple – you basically just stop shaving – many men assume that letting nature and their hair follicles let rip and do what they will is the way to go. The danger with this approach is that you run the risk of going full Roy Keane – which is to say sporting the kind of wildly extravagant beard which creates the impression that you’ve just emerged, blinking, from several years of solitary confinement.

The experts in the best barbershop in Kensington will be able to advise you as to what type and style of beard would suit your face and hairstyle, and they will also be able to offer expert after-care tips. Just like the hair on your head, the hair sprouting from your face needs grooming and looking after, and the following are just a few of the items which you’ll need to equip yourself with when deciding to join the ranks of the bearded.

Beard Trimmer

Although the full shave may become a thing of the past, you’ll still need a top quality electric trimmer in order to maintain the shape of your beard, tidy up details such as your sideburns and the hair growing down your neck and deal with any growth which appears beyond the designated beard zone.

Beard Shampoo

Ordinary shampoo will get your beard clean, soap will get the skin underneath clean. Beard shampoo will do both, at the same time as leaving your beard softer and richly moisturised.

Beard Control

Unless you go for the close cropped Noel Edmonds look (and we’ll give it a more positive spin by pointing out that Thierry Henry, amongst others, has gone for the same option), your beard, just like the hair on your head, is going to need product to keep it under control. The right beard control will act as a styling gel at the same time as keeping your beard in top condition.

Beard Brush

The hair of your beard could get tangled and unruly just like the rest of your hair. You must have noticed, however – unless you’re particularly unlucky – that your beard hair is of a different type and texture to your head hair. That’s why it needs a different brush, a dedicated beard brush, using something like boar bristles, to keep things tidy and knot-free.
