The Heartthrob Hair Trend for Men

Key Hair Trends for Men at My Hair Guru Hair Salon in Paisley

We know how difficult it can be for men who are looking to grow out their hair or give longer hair a style update.  Mid length hair can look untidy but at My Hair Guru hair salon in Paisley we have some good news for those of you struggling with this problem! The latest trend for men sees the comeback of 1990’s heartthrob hair, which is the perfect style for mid length locks.

The style involves messy hair swept back off the face, often falling into curtains, and it has been a favourite hairstyle of the bad boy with the angel face (think Johnny Depp).  The heartthrob hairstyle was one of the most iconic men’s hair trends of the 90’s and today, celebrities such as Cole Sprouse, Harry Styles and Brooklyn Beckham have given it a 21st Century update.

Hair Ideas for Gents with Natural Curly Hair

The heartthrob hairstyle shouldn’t look over styled.  It is a relaxed look that exudes indifference and cool.  This undone style is ideal for the man who has naturally curly or wavy hair, as with some clever products, you can recreate the look easily just using your fingers.  We stock a great range of styling products from Matrix at our Paisley Salon and can advise you on the perfect product to create the look.

Longer Hairstyles for Gents – The Healthy Heartthrob Hairstyle

There’s nothing quite so alluring as a cool, James Dean style man with healthy looking, shiny locks: perfect for running fingers through. There’s a reason why the Head & Shoulders adverts with David Ginola were so popular!  Cole Sprouse is now rocking the modern take on this look, with plenty of volume and shine to his hair.  Make sure you get a really great cut and wash your hair with a professional volumising shampoo – ask your My Hair Guru stylist which hair product would be best for this look.

Get a Hairstyle Like Brooklyn Beckham’s!

Back in the 1990s, one of the ultimate British heartthrobs was football star David Beckham. Looking back at his blonde curtain hair style of the time, perhaps it wasn’t the best look of his, but thankfully his eldest son Brooklyn has now updated his dad’s most iconic look for the 21st Century.  Plenty of volume and less structured curtains are where the hairstyle is at this year.  Recreate the look with a small amount of volumising & holding product such as Matrix Biolage Styling Texturiser, run your fingers up and through the front of your hair, and let the hair fall naturally to each side, with strands falling to the front.

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

The best thing about this new heartthrob hairstyle trend is that it is low maintenance and extra easy to style at home. Getting a great hair cut is essential first though, so ask you My Hair Guru stylist for layers, length left on the top of the hair and towards the front.

Hair should be towel dried gently to avoid any frizz, then “scrunch” a light cream or mousse product through the roots and length.  Hair can then be left to dry naturally or you could use a diffuser on your hairdryer to create volume.

Finish by styling your hair with your fingers to create a deconstructed, natural looking hair style.
