Top Men’s Hair Trends at Blakes Hairdressing Salon in Canterbury

At Blakes hair salon in Canterbury we offer a professional men’s hairdressing service with our fully trained barbers.  As well as offering the best men’s hair cuts and styles, we can advise on all the latest men’s hair trends.

We know how difficult it can be for men who are growing out short hair or want to give longer hair a more up-to-date style.  It’s easy for mid length hair to look untidy, but at Blakes we have some good news for those of you struggling with this problem!  The latest trend for men sees the comeback of the 1990’s heartthrob hairstyle, which works perfectly for mid length locks.

The look involves messy hair which is swept back off the face, or centre-parted, falling into curtains.  It’s a favourite hairstyle of the bad boy with the angel face (think Johnny Depp c.1995).   The heartthrob hairstyle was one of the biggest men’s hair trends of the 1990’s and it has now been given a 21st Century update by celebrities including Cole Sprouse, Harry Styles and Brooklyn Beckham.

Men’s Hair Ideas for Naturally Curly Hair

The heartthrob hairstyle shouldn’t look over styled or too structured.  It’s all about an undone look that speaks of indifference and cool.  This relaxed style is ideal if you have naturally curly or wavy hair, and with some clever products you can recreate the look very easily at home, just using your fingers to style it.   We stock a wide range of styling products at Blakes – speak to our stylists or one of the Reception team to find out which product would be best for your hair.  Moroccanoil works particularly well for curly hair.

Longer Hairstyles for Gents – The Healthy Heartthrob Hairstyle

There’s nothing quite so alluring as a cool man with long, shiny locks: perfect for running fingers through!  Think of  those popular Head & Shoulders adverts with David Ginola!  Cole Sprouse is now rocking an up-to-date version of this look, with plenty of volume and shine to his hair.  Make sure you get a really great cut at Blakes and wash your hair with a professional volumising shampoo – ask your Blakes stylist which hair product would be best for this look.

Get a Hairstyle Like Brooklyn Beckham!

Back in the Nineties one of the ultimate British fashion icons was footballer David Beckham.  Looking back at his crispy blonde curtain hair of the time, perhaps it wasn’t the best look to copy but thankfully his eldest son Brooklyn has now updated his dad’s most iconic style for the 21st Century.  Today the hairstyle should be worn with plenty of volume and the curtains should be less structured.  You can recreate the look with a small amount of volumising & holding product.  Run your fingers up and through the front of your hair, and let the hair fall naturally to each side, with strands falling to the front.  The result should appear effortlessly cool!

How to Achieve the Perfect Heartthrob Hairstyle at Home – Hairstyling Tips for Men

The best thing about the updated heartthrob hairstyle trend is the fact that it’s low maintenance and easy to style at home.  Getting a great hair cut is the essential first step though, so ask you Blakes stylist to add layers, but leave the hair longer on the top and towards the front.

Hair should be gently towel dried to avoid frizz, then “scrunched” with a light cream or mousse product through the roots and length.  Your hair should then be left to dry naturally or if you prefer,  you could use a diffuser if you have one to create volume.

Finish off by styling your hair with your fingers to create an unstructured, natural looking hair style.
