So visit an expert to find out which haircut will suit your face shape and hair type, but don’t opt for something cheap for the sake of it because a fade haircut where the sides are not blended properly or the cuts are too blunt are all signs of a bad haircut. It needn’t be something extravagant or crazy either.
FRINGE & QUIFF
These are both versatile styles dependent on your mood and style, whether you want to have it up or down somewhere on the forehead, or just somewhere in the middle.
Perfection is gone in hairstyles (like we used to see a few years ago) such as neat side parts and perfectly combed quiffs. Keep it rugged and natural. Ideally you want the length to be about 10-12cm and the sides around 1.5-2cm.
The fade at the sides needs to blend well, so with clever cutting and expert skills you can create soft texture with minimal styling products so it looks more natural and not like the ‘slicked back’ look. These hairstyles work for both casual and formal settings, we no longer see a divide with hairstyles representing the way in which you dress anymore so play around with what you have and you might be surprised with the results.
