Shiseido Professional creates styling products that help you get the season’s hottest look.
One of the trends spotted is glossy hair with a wet-look crown and dry textured curls.
Guys:Key words: Square silhouette. masculinity
Hair:There is an androgynous, gender-neutral feature for this season. The hair style is built on the “two block” cut, with sections underneath cropped boldly and neatly around the ears and nape. Corners of forehead create a square silhouette and hair blow-dried backwards (against growth direction) and styled with a wet, glossy styling agent to present a glistening finish. Slick down hair from the sides to the crest in a lifting motion and finish with hard hold hairspray to obtain a square shape. A stoic, masculine hairstyle and abstract fashion are the hallmarks of the contemporary man, who lives in the age of extreme confusion.
