Fades & Tapered Gents' Hair Cuts

A quick glance up and down the High Street and you're bound to see a chap with a fade or tapered hair cut.  This has become a modern classic with the 'short back and sides' sitting proudly alongside tapered gents’ haircuts.  

As it sounds, a fade is where your stylist uses clippers to blend your hair from the crown so it becomes shorter at the nape of the neck, fading to a number 1 or 2 or even disappearing completely.  A taper is a more gradual trim where your hair becomes shorter around the ears and back of your hair.

If in doubt, have a chat with your stylist who can help - or show us an image of the style you'd like for your hair.

Men's Hair: Long or Short?

If you're rocking long hair but want to wear it off the face, the man bun has become a modern-day classic.  It's more important than ever to keep your long hair looking and feeling healthy - no-one wants to see split ends and wispy ends!

When it comes to short hair, there are so many short men's hairstyles to choose from so why not talk to your Blakes stylist to find out which style will suit you best?

Book into our Canterbury unisex hair salon by calling us on 01227 768418.

Preppy Hairstyles for Men

If you want to update your hairstyle but keep it office appropriate, why not try a preppy men’s hairstyle?  This type of hairstyle is usually worn short and flat with a side parting but can also be spiced up with the right hair product, turning a flat hairstyle into a bit of a quiff!

For an urban twist on a preppy look, why not 'Google' the Princeton cut with its clean lines and longer hair at the front?  This is appropriate for all ages - think classic George Clooney with a hint of Zac Efron.
