New Season, New Style

AW/17 Hair Trends for Men from Christian Wiles Hairdressing Salon, Northampton 

The transition into a new season is a great excuse to re evaluate your style. The trends for AW17 give you the perfect opportunity to find a tailor-made look that complements your features whilst staying completely up to date with catwalk influences and men’s fashion.

Style Edit

Guys hairstyles for Autumn Winter 17 focus on texture: curly, wavy, dishevelled, slightly longer hair is big this season.  Runways have inspired this shift and the men’s shows at fashion weeks suggested a definite resurgence of 70’s style with shows including Vivienne Westwood and Oliver Spencer showcasing softer, grown-out looks.  The combination of texture and length give you so many options that can be adapted to suit your lifestyle, face shape and hair type. 

If you have thinner hair and need to add volume as well as texture,  you should consider Reuzel Grooming Tonic while Style Link Mineral Hair Mess Maker by Matrix is great if you want to create that tousled beachy wave that’s long and natural and full of movement.  Ask your stylist for a textured shape and to leave longer, more tousled pieces that you can style a according to the occasion. Try using a styling clay like Matrix Style Definer to add definition to the look.

Colour Edit

Colour for guys has fast become an in demand service and AW 2017 will see a surge towards natural colouring.  It’s a great, low-maintenance colour option that sweeps the hair with natural sun-kissed effects to add extra dimensions to longer hairstyles and for those with curly hair, it will  transform and define your look.  Grooming Salons now offer services such as ‘lunchtime colour’ that will literally lift and tone your hair within 45 minutes. We’re opting for neutral and ash tones to add depth to your hair and avoiding unflattering warmer tones.

Top Tip: Colour not only adds texture but can be applied to beards and hair to visually alter and enhance your features.
