THE HAIRSTYLE FOR MEN: THE BASIC TIPS (AND TEST OF THE MASTER BARBERS PERRUQUIERS IN PARIS)
Here’s to start the week one of the articles that has been the hardest to write for me, but I publish it with an enormous relief.
Why ? Because the hair is not a topic that I am passionate about to the masses and especially because it is very, very difficult to delimit. If I wanted to be really complete, I should talk about the details of each hairstyle for each type of face, different products and different types of hair, and in addition to the traps that fashion magazines can reach.
For example, the famous undercut, short on the sides and in the rear above:
You see this cup anywhere, and I give him a maximum of one year before disappearing as quickly as it arrived
In short, if I wanted to be complete, you would have to write 10000 words on a topic that I cannot control (and I don’t like) not really. It was however important for me to present to you an infographic that is clear, simple and easy-to-use system that quickly summarizes all the ambiguities of this subject.
Rather than disperse on the particular case, I chose to focus on the state of mind to have to choose your cut and that you communicate well with your hairdresser. In short, the essential.
I am suddenly helped:
–a very good article by Art of Manliness on the key points to discuss with your hairdresser and help you to decide on vital questions such as the shape of your hair at the nape of the neck
-an infographic on good questions to ask your hair stylist (in particular, on the maintenance of your hair after the appointment) and the decisive criteria to choose your hair style (forget the afro if you are doing the audit) by LifestyleByPS
-a latest infographic on the hairstyle to choose to put the most possible value for the shape of your face by Ninjasoar
I also able to test a small barber in paris a little confidential, The Masters Barbers Perruquiers, I’m going to talk to you at the end of the article.
I communicate Well with your hairdresser
The general style
If you want to completely change your style, the ideal is to at least have a photo of what you have in mind. If you want to keep the same cut, just show a photo of you at the time you have the ideal length. (and for this, Facebook is your best friend).
The length of the cut
Two types of hairdressers exist: the one that you razed almost to the skull after you have specified that you want a cut “just a little more open” and one that will not take too much risk and where you’ll see barely a difference. In short, the very, very short of the one will be the “slightly loose” on the other.
Be ultra-specific and always express yourself in centimeters: generally you will have very little possibility of error asking to remove 1 cm on each side. Réiterez if it is still too long.
Attention if you cut the hair to the alien: say “1 cm” in some countries, does not mean “cut me 1 cm of hair length,” but ” let me 1 cm of hair length “. It is in any case true in Cambodia (experiences of friends) and the result can suddenly surprise
It’s a word used fairly commonly to the hairdresser, and I took the trouble to understand it very late. It simply means that your hair length will go from the shortest to the top of the longest downhill: it is above that it will be the longest
You can also refuse to have a uniform length everywhere (this is personally what I prefer)
