For a while now, styles with short, sharp sides and more length on top have been the go-to men's hair trend. It's a simple formula that allows plenty of room to style a retro look or a more modern one. It's a really versatile cut because it works with all hair types and face shapes as it can be easily adapted to fit anyone. If you have a particularly round face, for example, ask your stylist for really short sides as too much length will widen it.
This cut can also be transformed with a styling putty or gum to create a style that is totally different from your natural look. This creates two basic options that can then be adapted to shape all kinds of different hairstyles: dishevelled or groomed.

A short cut like this can be styled one way and then totally altered if you feel you need a change. Texture has a huge part to play, after all, it's the difference between groomed and dishevelled. It's very easy to associate a sophisticated, groomed style with more formal attire but it's actually the perfect style to help balance out a casual outfit. The same goes for a dishevelled style, only in reverse. The unkempt yet controlled texture is a great match for a sharp suit (or anything that has been ironed!) as it keeps such attire from appearing overly slick.
When choosing between a dishevelled or groomed style, a major factor is your natural hair texture. If you have curly or very coarse hair, a messy style will be easier to achieve. However, with strong hold products like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyepr Fix Putty, it is possible to mold hair into a groomed style, using a comb and adding more product as you go.
Really, it all comes down to how much styling you want to do. If you prefer to roll out of bed and go, a few quick scrunches and tousles with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum may be all you need to keep your hair under control yet totally relaxed.
