"The only genuine drawback to grey hair is that it often arrives at a time when a man does start to lose some length on top."
If you haven’t started to bald, you can pick pretty much any style you like. The only genuine drawback to grey hair is that it often arrives at a time when a man does start to lose some length on top. However, there are several ways you can balance this out, with the right cut.
CASUAL BUT NEAT
For a casual but neat look, ask your barber to use scissors all over, which will create the illusion of thickness. Keep things close and tight to the back and sides of the head, which cancels out any balding in these areas, and ask us to use texturizing scissors on top creates a much richer appearance in terms of length. This is a low maintenance style best suited to those who like to wake up in the morning and walk out of the front door without spending an excessive amount of time on grooming.
SHORT BACK & SIDES
If you are willing to inject a little more razzmatazz into your morning ritual, plump for a classic short back and sides, with a subtle, angled, swept-back quiff. Use hair wax to work thoroughly and evenly throughout the hair for a casual, rugged look and for formal occasions, hair putty to create a sleek side parting; a versatile style that runs the gamut for a red carpet to rock’n’roll night out.
CLASSIC SWEEP BACK
"a classic sweep back will draw attention away from your forehead"
For the silver gentleman whose hairline is beginning to retreat, a classic sweep back will draw attention away from your forehead, and at the same time make a definite statement that you’re embracing the changes in your hair, and comfortable with your new look.
