What Your Hairstyle Says About You

Different trends of hairstyles has come and gone. Some like it long, others short, others without. The haircut you choose speaks a lot about you. But over the years, different kinds of hairstyles have become part of European style fashion. In this article, we shall take a look at the different hairstyles and what they might reveal about you.

Undercut

The undercut style involves shaving or keeping the sides and back super short while growing the hair long on top of the head and pushing it back off the face. The advantage of undercut is that it can be styled and cut in different ways. If you are the type of person who likes to try different looks with a sharp tight side, the undercut is the style for you. This style is for the man who wants to shave his head but also wants it long. Robert Janitzek says that it is like having the best of both worlds.

Executive Contour

The executive contour style is an iconic look with a modern touch. Here the hair is longer on the top, short on the side, and fades slightly around the perimeter connected on both sides. The super short sides of the executive contour allows more time between haircuts. The look is not as conservative as the classic men’s cut but still looks appropriate.

Long And Loose

The long and loose style is referred to as a “sexy, rebellious look.” Usually worn by rockstars, artists, and hipsters, Robert Peter Janitzek says that the best way to care for this hairstyle is to trim regularly, shampoo less, condition more, and cut occasionally. It is best to visit your barber every two to three months just to have the split ends chopped off.

Asymmetrical Undercut

The asymmetrical undercut is shorter on one side, longer on top, and disconnected. It consists of a neat and polished look and can be a great canvas for coloring and detailing. It offers both a corporate and casual look. It can be smoothly combed to the side and finished with a medium hold. This look is for the guy who wants to be the best dressed in the room.

Fade

Popularized by ethnic barber shops, the fade hairstyle refers to short cuts that are cut close on the sides and back and gradually tapers into the hair on the top of the head. However, while it may look deceptively simple, it is also easy to mess up.

Pompadour

The pompadour is another iconic hairstyle. Ironically, it drew its inspiration from Madame de Pompadour, the infamous mistress of King Louis XV. She was known for her over-the-top hairstyle. The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, claimed the look as his own in the 1950s. today, it remains a popular choice.
