A new hairstyle is an easy way to really change up your look. To stay ahead of the trends, we asked 2015 “Educator of the Year” and PRORITUALS’ new Creative Director and Director of Education, Douglas Martucci what we can expect to see on the runway at New York Fashion Week: Men’s spring 2017 collections and how you can get ready and look your best.
So what will be the biggest trend in men’s hair? ”Expect to see texture, this past year we have seen a tremendous growth in the texture categories. We will for sure see shine and structure as well as a soft matte looser and more casual feel,” Martucci predicts. “We are definitely seeing shorter sides with a disconnected and heavily textured top. Arched, skin, and tight fades are definitely at the forefront this year.” Martucci recommends playing with different products to really see how they work with your hair. “It’s all about versatility in men’s hair right now, some structure and some softness. With men I think we are more likely to see these trends hang out a bit longer, who doesn’t like a well groomed man?”
To get on-trend hair, start with the basics. “Good shampoo and conditioner is always the first step to creating any look. Be on the lookout for shampoo and conditioner that’s a pH of 4.5-5.5. It’s the same pH as your skin so it’s less likely to dry your scalp leading to dandruff.” Martucci explains.
Martucci also recommends when going for a new cut, try getting a style which has multiple options, “…talk to your stylist or barber about how to style your hair differently, you can have the beach texture but also a smooth pompadour with a change in product and some time practicing with your new look.”
Then right before Fashion Week or any big event make sure to “groom your brows and clean up your side burns,” Martucci advises. ”Keeping your brows neat frames the rest of your face and can show off those baby blues. Sideburns are a big one, the bigger and burlier they are, the wider they make your face appear. Keep them trimmed and close to create a leaner face shape.”
With a little precision grooming and a versatile style you’re sure to get noticed by the street style paparazzi!
