THE KEY TO FINDING YOUR OWN OPTIMAL HAIRSTYLE

May 29, 2022

A good haircut will change the way you feel, give you confidence and can even change your outlook. A good haircut can also change the attitudes that other people have towards you and this can lead to far greater changes that just your appearance. Discovering your optimal hairstyle is not always easy so in this article we try and break it down.
Man With Modern Hairstyle At Barber Industries Wollongong

Finding A Master Barber

There will be occasions where the hairstyle that someone desires may not work well for them individually. So how to get it right and ensure that you leave the barber's chair looking and feeling your absolute best every time?

The first step is to find a truely professional barber, someone who has the traditional skillset but is also fluent in a range of modern looks. 

Getting the optimal haircut is somewhat like getting a tattoo, you choose the tattooist with the best reputation and someone that you can trust, the same goes when choosing your barber. In both situations you need to tell the artist what it is that you desire, they can then provide their professional advise and inform you of what is achievable and what will work best for you individually. 


Optimising For Your Attributes

Before you even step foot inside the barbershop you should first consider the type of hair you have. Is it straight, wavy, curly, thick or thin? Is it receding or thinning out? All the various attributes are going to have a bearing on what hairstyles are optimal for you. Men with curly hair can pull off hairstyles that are impossible for men with straight hair and vice versa. The key is choosing a hairstyle that compliments your attributes.

Another area that is often overlooked is your face shape. Will your new hairstyle compliment your face shape and features? Rounder faces can be lengthened by cutting short on the sides and leaving more length on top. Styling products can be used to give extra height and enhance this effect. Men with square face types can opt for longer natural styles that will soften the sharp angles found in these instances.


Complimenting Your Core Style

Last but not least we need to discuss a man’s core style. A haircut is only one piece of the identity puzzle but it is just as powerful as every other component. How will your new hairstyle fit with the other pieces? This is all about how a man postures himself to the world around him. Your optimal hairstyle will compliment the clothes you wear, the life you lead and convey to others who you are.

Visit our team of highly skilled master barbers at Barber Industries Wollongong Central, get more than just a great haircut and discover your optimal hairstyle with us. Our team will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and advise on what will work best for you and your features. We are open seven days a week and the barbershop is located directly opposite Deco Hair & Beaty on the ground floor of Wollongong Central.
