The first time you meet someone, right off the bat you’re probably going to notice are their luscious locks, or lack thereof. Even if you don’t meet someone face to face, most people will immediately form an image of who you are based off what you look like, and as such one of the key personality indicators used by many people… is your hair style.
Your hair says a lot about who you are (not always the case, but it helps). Knowing this, even if you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, wisely choosing your hair style can help you put forward some of the things that you love about yourself to the outside world.
Let’s have a look at some of the more popular hair styles and how you can use them to really express the real you.
The classic army do is probably the easiest one to attain and to maintain. Even if you’re not as hard strung as the hair cut may come off to some, many people who get buzzcuts are much more practical and have much less to worry about in terms of maintaining their mane. Practical, efficient, consistent.
You really can’t go wrong with a side part. It’s been around for longer than most of us have been alive and it’s as versatile as it gets. Whether your hair is long or short, either one works and can easily be achieved with just a lick of gel or hair cream. Professional and down-to-earth, a side part can really display your upstanding side and really show of some manliness.
The centrepiece of style and class comes with the slicked back hairdo that shows off what you got. For decades, applying your haircare products and pushing back your hair with either a comb or your hands show off your confidence in the best way. It shows that you’re taking life seriously and you’re out to make a statement. There’s a reason why some of the most badass characters rock the slicked back.
Dating back some 90 years, the undercut has been on the hair stylists’ radar for quite some time. This attention-grabbing hairdo shaves off the sides into buzzcut territory but keeps the top flowing. Somewhat more high maintenance than previous hairstyles, the undercut says that you’re all about looking as dapper as possible and you give careful attention to the way you’re seen and perceived.
Your hairstyle is an extension of yourself, and an opportunity to show off what makes you, you. Whatever your style choice might be, slap on some gel and show the world what you got.
