It's no good having perfectly groomed tresses yourself if your other half is letting the side down with a sloppy style. Now is the perfect time to suggest an image overhaul in time for spring, so where better to look for inspiration than the bets of British menswear's cutting edge catwalks.
Cover Media caught up with celebrity hairdresser Johnnie Sapong to find out what the latest hair styles making waves in the men's fashion world are and how to create them at home.
British Menswear Brand Peter Werth went for a Mod inspired '70s throwback look with an up-to-date twist at the London Menswear shows. The inspiration was a Studio 54 vibe influenced by Suedeheads and the Mods.
"To start apply a generous amount of professional volume mousse to damp hair and blow dry using a vent brush to keep the hair at the front flat and styled into a centre parting," Johnnie explained. "Apply a small amount of firm hold spray to hold the split fringe in place. Then tease the crown area for volume and texture, before brushing the hair at the crown of the head backwards to create movement and separation. Use a firm, hold spray to set the look."
At Oliver Spencer, the modern man was catered for with an '80s cool hair look, taking inspiration from David Byrne and David Bowie. "Phytodefrisant [a non-chemical straightening treatment] was applied to damp hair evenly from root to tip, using 1.5 inch sections," Johnnie revealed. "Hair was then smoothed with a comb, then blow-dried smooth and straight backwards. Use a professional strong sculpting gel applied with a wide toothed comb all over the head from root to tip of the hair. Finally leave hair to dry naturally and split into sections adding texture and movement."
