Top Men’s Hair Trends for 2019 at Michelle Marshall Hair Salon in Cardiff

At Michelle Marshall hair salon in Cardiff we offer a great men’s hairdressing service and can advise on all the latest men’s hairstyle and trends.

We know how difficult it can be for men who are growing out their short hair or want to give their longer hair a style update.  It’s easy for mid length hair to look untidy, but at Michelle Marshall Salon we have some good news for those of you struggling with this problem! The latest hair trend for men sees the return of the Nineties’ heartthrob hairstyle, which is perfect for those of you with mid length locks.

The look involves deliberately messy hair swept back off the face, often falling into curtains either side of the face.  It’s known as a favourite hairstyle of the bad boy with the angel face (think Johnny Depp c.1995).   The heartthrob hairstyle was 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.

Hair Ideas for Guys with Naturally Curly Hair

The heartthrob hairstyle shouldn’t ever look over styled or too structured.  It’s meant to look undone, in a way that exudes indifference and cool.  This relaxed  style is ideal if you have naturally curly or wavy hair, as with the help of some clever products you can very easily create the look at home, just using your fingers to style it.   We stock a wide range of Redken styling products at Michelle Marshall – speak to your stylist to find out which product would be best for your hair.

Longer Hairstyles for Gents – The Healthy Heartthrob Hairstyle

There’s something very alluring about a cool guy with long, shiny locks: perfect for running fingers through!  Think back to those Head & Shoulders adverts with David Ginola – there’s a reason they were so popular!  Cole Sprouse is now modelling an up-to-date version of this longer look, with plenty of volume and shine to his hair.  Make sure you get a really great cut at Michelle Marshall and wash your hair with a professional shampoo – ask your stylists which hair product would work best for adding volume to your hair.

Get a Hairstyle Like Beckham!

Back in the Nineties footballer David Beckham was one of the ultimate British fashion icons.  Looking back at his crispy curtain hairstyle of the time, perhaps it wasn’t the best look to copy today, but thankfully his eldest son Brooklyn has now updated his dad’s famous look for the 21st Century.  These days the style should be worn with plenty of volume and the curtains should be more relaxed.  You can recreate the look yourself by using a small amount of volumising & holding product.  Run your fingers upwards through the front of your hair, and then let the hair fall naturally either side, with a few strands falling to the front.  The aim is to achieve a look that appears effortlessly cool!

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

One of the best thing about this new heartthrob hairstyle trend is that it is low maintenance and so easy to style at home.  Getting a great hair cut is the vital first step though, so ask you Michelle Marshall stylist to add layers, but leave the hair longer on the top and towards the front.

Following washing, hair should be gently towel dried so it doesn’t go frizzy, then “scrunched” with a light cream or mousse product through the roots and length.  Your hair can then be left to dry naturally or you could use a diffuser if you have one to create volume if you prefer.  Finish by styling your hair with your fingers, thus creating a deconstructed, natural looking hair style.
