How to get it: For this style you want the top to be longer than the sides. The bleach helps give texture, as will your barber using a point-cutting technique. Avoid looking sleek, this style needs to be rough. New hairstyle for.
Who it suits: You’ll need straight or wavy hair and plenty of it. Thin tresses won’t work. This cut best suits oval faces.
The product: To keep it looking textured yet clean, use Fudge’s Dry Shampoo (£8.99. Atmankind.co.uk ). Be sure to use a mousse such as Fudge’s Xpander Foam (£12. Atmankind.co.uk ) to maintain texture. Once applied, use a hair dryer and apply a spot of leave-in lotion, such as American Crew’s Light Hold Texture Lotion (£13.americancrew.com ).
How to get it: This is a classic clipper cut with faded sides. Ask for the lower edges to be buzzed at 0.5, blended up to a grade one. On top, the length should be 1.5. This style won’t need much maintenance, but get a regular trim to keep it sharp.
Who it suits: A buzzcut best suits round or heart-shaped faces. Maybe not one for you if you’ve got sticky-out ears or areas of considerable thinning. Colour-wise, get it done professionally and in a Refreshers-worthy hue.
Short hairstyles for short hair
The product: Curly hair would benefit from Gielly Green’s Argan Rescue Works. It’s brilliant at controlling frizz. Other hair types need no styling products (£22. giellygreen.co.uk ).
How to get it: Ask for the fringe to be longer on top (around 12cm), graduating to 4cm or so at the crown, with the sides cut to approximately 1cm.
Who it suits: If you are going for fully bleached ends, this works better on fine hair. As for texture, naturally wavy is best, but curls can be relaxed and straight hair scruffed up with product for maximum control and natural finish. Face shape? Youngish oval.
The product: On dry hair, apply Redken Mattifying Powder Grip 03 generously at the roots (£12. redken.com ).
How to get it: Grow your hair out on top to around 10-12cm. The sides and back need to be around 4-5cm. Ends should be thinned out to not look Lego-esque. It’s effectively a borderline mullet, after all.
Who it suits: For this style it’s best to have straight hair. It also suits a strong, square jaw.
The product: To keep hair from flopping down, streak with Fudge Hair Gum Controlling Gel using your hands. That’s all (£8.99. Atmankind.co.uk ).
