Tommy Taylor, Lead Men’s hairstylist at London’s takes us though the top five mens hairstyles for Spring/Summer 2015. Having styled the hair for shoots with Shortlist Magazine, Tommy is the new face of Men’s hair. “This Spring men’s hairstyles become much more refined (read simpler) and low maintenance. We’re seeing fewer undercuts and a return to classic barber techniques and shapes,” he says.
Mens Hairstyles for Spring Summer 2015
This is England
Taking inspiration from the 1970’s Skinhead revival Suedehead, looks this season are cut tight to the head through the back and sides and work a neat crop through the top. Styling is minimal and control is key – work a small amount of KMS Hair Play Moulding Paste through for a defined shape with strong hold.
Longer lengths have been on the up for some time now reaching a peak with the rise of long-locked James Bay and co. Texture is a must for a lived-in dishevelled look. After washing, leave hair to dry naturally and use a small amount of KMS Hair Play Dry Wax for minimal, fuss-free styling.
The Flat Pack
The ‘50s Flat Top makes a comeback with clean military precision lines and hedonistic height through the top. Think Val Kilmer in Top Gun with a side of De la Soul fade. Shape should be square cut with subtle movement to avoid looking too Jarhead.
Crop n Roll
If you favour simple styling, the crop is this season’s go-to look. A refined and work-appropriate look, styling is minimal, quite literally get up and go. Keep a little length on top to soften the look.
No parting, pushed back, low key styling. With a nod to Johnny Cash, hair is worn pushed back away from the face with a subtle height. Length is longer through the sides and top with natural movement. Use KMS Hair Play Clay Crème for a strong hold matte texture. A great style if you cycle to work.
