Men’s hair wasn’t always a thing. Guys went to the barbershop or the hair salon and said, “I’ll take a two on the sides.” But now, in 2016, men’s hair is far more advanced than that.
At Canvas Salon we love cutting men’s hair. The reason we love it so much is because we know guys have choices for their hair and we believe we should be telling you what they are.
Most guys we talk to have been rocking the same haircut for years. We know the reason is because most stylist are just saying, “What are we doing today?” Not, “Hey, I have some new ideas for your haircut.” Changes don’t have to be drastic. They can be small, but small change is significant when you haven’t changed your hair in a long time.
Our favorite change to make when guys come to Canvas Salon is to start tapering their haircut. Let us give you a little inside scoop. When you have a pair of clippers used on your entire head, with the same guard, you are cutting every hair on your head to the same length. But have a look at your head. It dips in in some spots and is wider in others. Those variations make a big difference in how long your haircut will last and how it will look when it grows out.
Have you ever felt like you looked like a Q-tip when your hair grew out? It’s probably because you had your hair clipper cut and it all grew out to the same length.
Tapered haircuts can last up to two full weeks longer, depending on your style. It gives your haircut shape and it prevents the fluffy looking grow out.
