It’s time we acknowledged the opposite sex and their style needs. And we’re going to start at the very top…with their hair.
A man can have natural good looks and a great outfit but ruin it all with a bad haircut. A well-groomed guy with a good hairstyle shows us that he has put some thought and effort into his personal style. And although he might not talk about his hair as much as we do, he obsesses over it just as much (if not more).
Your guy’s last trip to the barbershop was a bit upsetting to say the least. Not only did Mr. Marty cut off way too much on top and take it way too high around the ears, he also raised his price! $25 including tip – get outta here Marty!
See, barbers are generally taught to cut shorter, more conventional haircuts for men. Where as stylists, like the ones we go to, have received extensive training in the art of styling. Cutting longer, fuller styles is their expertise. So if your guy wants to keep his locks long and flowing (think: Bieber), a call to your salon is in order. And although it may take a lot of convincing (bribery does work), he will thank you after.
Upon walking into the crowded salon, he may seem a little weary. Take him by the hand and walk him to the reception area. After checking in he will be told to head back to get “shampooed,” a concept he may not understand. Watch his eyes slowly shut as he gets his hair washed and conditioned. He will then be taken to a chair where a stylist will cut, shape and style his hair, adding product to hold and lock in the look.
He may have whined about the inflated price at his old shop and this will certainly cost more, but you didn’t hear him complain once, did you? The days of men being embarrassed in a hair salon are a thing of the past. His new hairstyle will be the envy of all of his friends.
For the ultimate experience, send your man to The Gentleman’s Cut. It’s a full service salon that is dedicated to its predominantly male clientele (hence the name). It offers services such as haircuts, color, facials, and massages. There is even a putting green for your guy to practice his game while he waits. But quite possibly the best and coolest thing of all – they offer complimentary beverages! He can drink a beer (for a small, additional cost) while he gets groomed.
No wonder my boyfriend gets a haircut every few weeks…
