When you sit in that chair for that million dollar style, when you get up, you should feel
at least 10 years younger and look it too; so you can say mission accomplished. Make sure your barber or stylist is taking a small inch
held clipper just for your ear / nose hair and cleaning you up. Science may tell us, the hair is there to help shield you from those
strange things floating in the air; but they wonít tell you what it does to your love life. So make sure your technician clips
everything off and that includes thinning out wild and wooly eyebrows too.
Many men choose to wear the same style they wore when they were in University resisting
change. If you have larger ears, usually the hair is cut to lay over one half of the ear to give the illusion that your ears arenít
that large. Unless you were born with ear wings I wouldnít worry about the largeness of your ears. Women love you just the way you are.
If you have the ear wings, meditate about seeing a reputable plastic surgeon and get them tucked back a little bit. Women do this,
so itís good for guys too and it isnít major surgery. When you see the difference, youíll wonder why you waited so long. This can be
life changing and give you more confidence and who doesnít need that?
A gentlemenís cut that gives appeal is much more complex than anyone could understand. Letís
imagine a man who has thick straight hair on top of his head that grows down toward his eyebrows. There is only about two inches from
his hairline to his eyebrows, so this man cannot afford much length or it will grow in his eyes. In the crown he has the circle I was
talking about previously; now when we look at his top, itís all growing toward his face. This man has learned to swim with the tide
and doesnít fight the direction his hair flows, with the exception of about two inches in the very front closest to his hairline; he
applies some gel and spray and tweaks it up.. He gets a good cut about an inch long on top and leaves about another half inch where he
tweaks; and going with a fade in the back and around his ears. Heís a clean mean moving machine.
Horse shoes should only be for horses, but unfortunately there is a thinness described as the
horseshoe. The hair begins to recede in the two sides above the temple area circling around to meet each other giving an island of hair
left for the top. There are expensive products you can take to make your hair come back, but the minute you stop taking them, the hair
returns back to its former stance. To look most attractive you have a few options: One is, you could let your hair grow a little bit,
say about 3-4 inches and get a moisturizing perm. Fluff with a large comb after applying gel placing your hair over the horseshoed area.
Another course would be to get a clipper cut about one-fourth to one-half of an inch all
over. Some men are shaving their heads. Or, you could just let your hair grow without getting a perm and blow dry over those sections.
Some opt for hair transplants that are very expensive and painful, from what I have heard. Other men wear hair pieces, then; there is
always the acceptance that you are not alone in your genetic inheritance and your girl friend does not love you for the hair you have.
After all, hair does not make the man. Remember that famous Hungarian movie star Yul Brynner in ďThe King and I?Ē He didnít have any
hair but has always captured ladies swooning attention world wide for years.
Asian hair is uniquely different then Caucasian hair as it is straight, smooth, fine and
mostly thin, but gives the illusion of being quite thick. When cutting an Asian gentlemenís hair it is important not to get it too
short as it will stick out on the sides because they have a tendency to grow outward instead of down.
Your hair is unique. There isnít another head of hair that can begin to match what you have.
Your style should advertise who you are and reflect your individual personality. If you are comfortable with a style you have had for
years because it works for you, that is ok too; because that is who you are and the world needs consistent people just like you. I
think about Donald Trumpís hair and how he has had the same style ever since I can remember, because it works for him. The style is
something he can do himself and he feels good about it. Looking at him through a professional eye, I cannot help thinking, he could look a lot better.
If looking at the clock you sense itís time for a change, make this event a fun time and be
sure to find a reputable technician to give you a lot of suggestions and take the time to analyze your hair and lifestyle. Donít be
afraid to have some golden blonde foils in your hair and color over your gray with some golden brown and then get that new haircut. Itís
a small price for a big smile afterwards.
