7 Ways All Guys Should Be Wearing Their Hair This Summer
7 LCM trend inspired hair styles all men with an eye for fashion will be working this autumn. See the pics at MTV.co.uk
London's answer to men's fashion week made its return to the catwalks this week and while you might not be able to get your hands on the SS17 collections they were showing off until next year, any fashion conscious guys out there can at least get way ahead of the game and steal the summery hair styles the models have been working right now.
From just got out of the sea hair perfect for holidays at Topman to the super slick jolt of oily colours at Katie Eary, we guarantee you're gonna want to try them ALL this summer.
1. The Slick British Geezer at Topman Design
This Topman collection is a celebration of the Great British seaside, so it makes perfect sense that hair stylist Matt Mulhall mirrored that laddish, been out all night and fell asleep on a sun lounger the next day vibe using products by Fudge Professional.
This slicked back style works best on just got out of the shower hair and Matt created the look by applying Fudge Professional Hair Gum straight onto damp hair. He then loosely combed the hair back and adds Fudge Professionl Gloss to build up shine. Then comes the styling - keep things slicked back or go for a middle parting with tendrils combed around the face. Finish with Fudge Professional Head Shine to add even more gloss and shine.
2. Big Hair Don't Care at Topman Design
This artfully architectural hair is all about perfecting a smooth, geometric cut.
Keep things close around the sides but leave volume up top and enhance with a moisturising creme like the one by Modie Haircare.
3. Close shave at Astrid Andersen
The easiest of styles to maintain over summer is the close crop, slightly grown out - just like the one and only Justin Bieber is rocking right now. This look was created by Bumble & Bumble for Astrid Andersen and has a grungy 90s feel to it that we're more than a bit obsessed with.
A neat trick for anyone who wants to bleach or colour their crop is to keep roots in check with a sprinkle of coloured hair powder to mask any unwanted regrowth in between dyeing.
4. Bieber sweep at Feng Chen Wang
Another Bieber infused style, this time pulling in the classic sweeping fringe from the early days. It's a little more Noel Gallagher than the clean-cut vibe associated with the Biebs and is easily styled using a salt spray to wet the hair.
Then dry the hair using a round brush: it will build texture and volume for that windswept look. Hold in place with hair spray.
5. Oil slick colour at Katie Eary
The colouring trend is in no way just for girls and at Katie Eary, Fudge Professional injected an amazing slick of oily colours into both the dark and lighter hair colours. Created by colourist Tina Outen, the idea was to create hair reminiscent of the most slippery of fish skin, where you only see the true depth of rainbow colours when it hits the light.
To create, the hair is blow dried straight back. Then combine products like Fudge Professional Hair Gum and Gloss and apply all over the hair. Tease the hair back using Begbie from Trainspotting as your inspo. Once that's dry, colour from the Fudge Paintbox range is mixed with more Gloss and Hair Gum and painted onto the hair for that oil slick effect. Use pastels on blonde shades and dark purples and blues on black and brunette hair.
6. The punk cut at Charles Jeffrey Loverboy
This hair is chaotic, dark and edgy. Punky with an infusion of the surfer aesthetic, it's all about letting that natural grease build up, using it to style and then setting with a glossy, gel based product to make it look dishevelled and lived in.
If you're more about the skater vibe than the traditional punkish, this will look great with denim cut offs and ripped and faded tees.
7. Super shiny curls at Sibling
Miami sportswear is the base for this look, again created by Tine Outen using Fudge Professional. To get that all-American vibe, use Fudge Professional Curve Maker to help define your natural curls.
Amp up the ringlets with curling tongs aiming to create glossy and non-frizzy curls. To finish, define the curl around your finger and spritz with Fudge Professional Skyscraper and Head Shine to get things super glossy.
