Hair Apparent


For men, hair can be a source of concern or neglect, as age and genetics combine to mean thinning or unruly hair. Some men pay little attention to their hair. But for good grooming and a great first impression, all men need to heed the how-tos of hair.

Mieka Hairdressing Salon Manager and current AHFAs Men’s Hairdresser of the Year, Lucas Dowling, says this Spring/Summer is all about grooming for men.

Classic barbering looks incorporate highly skilled techniques with scissors to create a blend from skin on the hairline into longer lengths through the top.

“Super-groomed, slicked back styles are going to be a big trend using pomade, wax, gel or grooming cream with high shine, and our product recommendation is the range by American Crew.”

Lucas continues: “This haircut is also super versatile, as it can be dressed differently using a matt paste for a rougher effect. Forming or Grooming Cream by American Crew is the go to product to create a sophisticated preppy look.”

While facial hair is still on trend this spring, this year it will be in a more groomed and manicured fashion, and not as disheveled as last summer. “For the adventurous, shaved off part-lines are a super-cool, edgy look that is going to be a massive trend.”

Wavy beach texture with length on the bottom perimeter is also making a comeback. Ultramatte by American Crew is an amazing product to highlight this natural texture.

Colour can also be used to add texture and effect. Freehand colouring techniques to accentuate the hair’s texture and give longer hair a beachy ‘surfer dude’ feel. Colour tones are subtle and muted keeping a masculine feel to the overall look.

At Mieka Hairdressing our philosophy is that suitability to each individual person is the most important factor. Salon colours are extremely conditioning with the technology of all professional colours being far more advanced providing longer-lasting colour results with exceptional condition and shine.
