Newport Beach hair stylist and hair colorist emilyanncain.com shares styling techniques for men with fine strait hair
Here’s a hair type desired by many, but possessed by few. You stand the best chance of finding thin, fine or straight hair on the heads of East Asian, Hispanic and blond Caucasian men.
This hair type may be great, but some guys still manage to screw it up. Our hairstyling basics guide continues
Mistakes guys make (Newport Beach hair stylist)
Not all guys enjoy the floppy look of straight hair, so they buzz it off. Don’t let straight hair go to waste. Many people regard straight as an ideal; if your hair is straight and provides good coverage, grow it out a bit and play around with it. Embrace conditioners and mousses to give it some bounce.
Another mistake we see is guys who cut their straight hair to a medium length (sans layers) and part it down the middle. Please avoid this “bowl cut” look; it’s a little boy’s style, folks.
Other men embrace straight hair’s styling advantages a little too much, growing their hair to shoulder-length or more. While medieval kings and rock stars can pull off a long mane, the look ultimately requires more upkeep and maintenance than it’s worth. It’s also a hairstyle women hate.
Styling strategies (Newport Beach hair stylist)
Just as the classic “college cut” works for men with wavy and normal hair, it also works for men with straight hair.
Straight also lends itself particularly well to the fabled Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible II (2000) haircut. It was a crappy movie, but Cruise’s locks sure looked good. For this look, keep your hair long (about 3.5″ to 5.0″) and layered on the sides, back and top, but keep the bangs shorter.
A cousin of the faux “bed head” look described above is the haircut that involves cutting straight hair to a short or medium length with uneven layers. Comb it forward on the top and down on the sides for that tousled look.”
