Hair Trends for Guys 2018

Zach, Manager at The Lounge talks us through the latest trends in Gents Hair and the products you need to achieve the look.

What is the most popular look right now and what would you say are the upcoming trends?

A great trend at the moment is the Peaky Blinder look. Cillian Murphy, the leading character in Peaky Blinders, has a very harsh #1 fade/disconnection with a long fringe covering the forehead. Since joining Reflections as a Barbering Expert, I have had countless young guys ask for this look and it seems to be getting even more popular.

The current trend among male teenagers is to have pretty much no hair on the side and a very heavy curly top - as a result I have had many requests for perms.

Who do you consider to be a style inspiration?

David Beckham is definitely up there. From all the way back in the 90’s he has always been a style inspiration/Icon. But personally, my style icon/inspiration has to be Johnny Depp. He has made the alternative style accessible to everyone. He has had some ”risky” haircuts in the past which are now very common within the general public. He led the way for many guys to express themselves through their clothing style, music tastes and more importantly, their hair styles.

What are your favourite products?

My personal favourite would have to be Osis Mess Up. It has a really nice texture to it, smells good and has a great long lasting hold while providing a natural finish.

And finally, what do you love most about your role as Barbering Expert?

I love meeting new people/new clients and seeing each client leave the salon with a smile on their face. I also get a real buzz when clients request an appointment specifically with me.
