The French Crop

Requiring minimal maintenance, the French crop is a fuss-free cut that’s still flexible enough to be tweaked to taste.
Hair is cut very short through the back and sides, while leaving the hair on top slightly longer (a couple of inches at most) – the ‘crop’ part of this style’s name comes from the top section’s choppy, textured finish.8o
As for the front hairline, you can either  have your fringe cut short and neat or keep some length for styling forward across the forehead.
Classically masculine, the French crop suits guys of any age and face shape. Round faces, for example, will benefit from especially short, sharp sides and plenty of texture through the top section to add some height; meanwhile, it’s better to frame longer faces with longer sides (which will add width to balance) and a slightly flatter top section.

How To Style

To style the French crop, you can apply product to damp or dry hair. For a shiny, glossy finish apply to damp hair for a matte finish apply to dry hair.

The Side Parting

Slick and neat, the side parting is the indisputable daddy of smart hairstyles, but it takes some prep to ensure yours is on-point.

Before getting your hair cut for a side parting, it’s worth taking time to establish which way yours sits better based on the way your hair grows. That way, you can have your hair cut in the right direction to optimise styling.

You’ll also want to decide how prominent you want your parting to be, as that will likely affect the way it’s cut.

How To Style

The way you should style a parting depends on your face shape. If your face is round, try to avoid creating a parting that’s too slick or flat as its clean lines will look at odds with your face. Instead, consider blow-drying your hair to create a bit of volume.

Try new shampoo & conditioner

Have you ever wondered why your hair always looks healthier and more voluminous after trying a new shampoo and conditioner and why it begins looking dull again after only a few months of washing with these new products?
The reason is simple: Your hair's texture gradually becomes accustomed to your regular shampoo and conditioner. Your hairstyle reaches its best point, but then it plateaus and it's eventually all downhill from there. That's why you should switch up your shampoo and conditioner every now and then it'll do wonders for your hair.
Changing your shampoo and conditioner every now and then will also help you psychologically by giving your hair a refreshing new scent and texture. That alone will make you feel better about yourself and your hair.

Redken for men has a wide range of shampoo & conditioner to suit every hair type.
Need some advice ask about trying a new shampoo & conditioner on your next visit.

Quick fix hair styling

When it comes to styling your hair, avoid using low-end men's hair products, such as cheap gel or mousse. They tend to flake, grease up your hair and their hold lasts half the time as those of better quality. Generally, it's worth spending more money for a quality hair product. The results are noticeable, longer-lasting and 90% of the time, you'll only need a drop of the product for it to work wonders.
If you decide to lie down for a few hours — for example, after work and before going out — don't overload your hair with more styling products. Instead, simply wet your hair and replenish the product you started out with that morning. Applying too much of any type of hair product definitely won't make your hair look nicer, only greasier.
Moreover, if you've recently noticed that your hair looks bad more often than it should, it might be time for a little change. Get a haircut and try a different hairstyle altogether.
A drastic change might be exactly what you need to get your hair out of that slump. Other simple changes can also help. For example, a client usually combed his hair to the right. One day he tried combing it to the left and noticed a drastic drop in his bad hair days. You'll never know until you try.
You should get a haircut regularly as it will make your hair easier to style, and keep it looking neat most of the time

No more bad hair days!

Bad hair days are like bad moods you don't want them.
Wash your hair regularly
Any day your hair looks dirty or oily can be considered a bad hair day.
Clean, healthy hair is the basis of any good-looking men's hairstyle. That said, make sure to wash your hair on a regular basis. If your hair is dry, then shampoo less frequently and use a mild shampoo that does not wash away the natural oils from your scalp. It is also recommended that you use a moisturizing conditioner.
If someone asks whether you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, odds are you're having a bad hair day — unless, of course, bed head is your usual hairstyle. The best way to avoid bed head in the first place is to take a shower and wet your hair completely every morning.
Reshaping your hairdo from scratch is the most effective way to achieve a great hairstyle every time. Once your hair is completely wet, proceed to dry and style your hair as you normally would.

You should get a haircut regularly as it will make your hair easier to style, and keep it looking neat most of the time.
