Who said that the hair salon was a girls’ only zone? Gone are the days when a dude could get away with a quick short back and sides at the barbershop. An edgy haircut combined with a profound sense of style is where it’s at now!


Yes, we get that for some, a trip to the barber is not just about the cut. There’s a whole lot of nostalgia and camaraderie involved. But if you’re serious about your hair care and keeping up with the latest trends, here are 5 reasons why you need to hit the salon.


If your hair is longer


From shaggy bed hair to a hipster topknot, man hair comes in all shapes, lengths and sizes. A barber is trained to deliver a handful of traditional short hairstyles. If your mop is longer, then visit a hair salon where a stylist has the skill and experience to cut and shape different lengths.


If you’re fashion forward


While a barber will generally stick to tried and tested haircuts, it’s a hair stylist’s job to keep up to date with all the trending cuts and techniques. If you’re the type of guy who likes to be 100% on point with what’s hot, then visit the hair salon instead of the barber.


If you want to change your colour


Hair stylists are experts when it comes to colour. For professional colour, it’s best to visit the hair salon. Whether you’re after natural colours such as blonde, brown or black, or want to experiment with a vivid fashion colour like electric blue, a skilled hair stylist can make it happen.


If you need hair products for men


You’ll find all of the best hair products for men at the salon, and hair stylists are also very knowledgeable when it comes to helping you choose the right products for your hair. You’ll receive great advice on keeping your hair in good condition, which is especially important if your hair is longer.


If you want a flattering cut


An experienced hair stylist doesn’t just have scissor skills - they can also advise you on the best styles to suit your face shape and hair type, as well as minimise problems such as thinning hair or a receding hairline.
