Mens Hairstyles Picture Gallery 1
Unlike womens hairstyles, I can't think of a single hair stylist or barber that is known for innovative mens hairstyles. Men's hairstyles tend to take their lead from the music and film industry. When Billy Ray Cyrus walked out on stage with the mullet, it swept the country like a wild fire.
Elvis, The Beetles, Bob Marley, James Bond, Charlie Sheen, and James Dean. These men all set off a wave of men's hairstyles. The list goes on, but you get the idea.
When I was a kid the idea was to blend in. Most men had the same haircut, the same suit, and consumed the same products. The only act of individualism that was allowed within parameters, was the choice of our tie.
Today, not only do men have far greater opportunities to express themselves through style in the professional workplace, but when it comes to dating, style is now a must. Men who blend in, are overlooked.
Whatever hairstyle you choose, be sure you do it for the right reasons. Here are a few hairstyle traps that I see men fall into on a regular basis:
1. Don't pick your haircut based on what some female you have a thing for tends to like in her male selections. It won't help you get her. In fact, the more you stand out from her typical male selection, the better. She will find you bold and daring, and that is what she really wants in a man.
2. If you are suffering from premature male pattern hair loss, don't try to disguise it with a comb over or the like, and lose the baseball cap. You are going to have to take it off eventually anyway. These types of covers and disguises are obvious and and indicates to a woman that you lack self confidence. A major turn off to women. Instead make the best of what you have, even if that means shaving your head bald. Take ownership.
3. Don't let male or female friends dictate your style for you. Instead, find a great hair stylist to advise you. I have two hair stylists. I am as white as snow and my one hair stylist is a barber as black as midnight, and the other is a little Latin flame. They could not be more different from me, but they both work in a hip salon and are on the cutting edge of what is cool, and how to adapt it to my age so I don't look like an idiot.
I tell you this only so that you know that to get a great look may require you to step out of your comfort zone a little. It is worth the effort. So take a few minutes to discover who you are, without being influenced by others. Then have a look at the men's haircuts in our gallery and see if something is to your liking and fits your hair line and hair type. Research the hippest salon in your area, even if you have to travel twenty miles. Your professional life and your love life will reward you for your efforts.
