Fresh For Summer
Fresh for summer
This week we're sharing a guest blog from Ken Hermes, as Essex-based barber who is the latest ambassador for the Lions Barber Collective, an international collection of barbers who work together to raise awareness for the prevention of suicide. Here Ken shares his SS19 hair predictions and his favourite products from The Bluebeards Revenge.
Long gone are the days of slicked-back pompadours; I can't remember the last time I used a pomade to slick someone's hair back! But what I am seeing a lot more of as we head towards summer, are some really low fades and tons of textured tops. These layered crops and textured variations on the pompadour are becoming very trendy, and are a great styling option for gents with straight, thick hair.
Try: The Bluebeards Revenge Sea Salt Spray and Matt Paste for loads of texture.
A lot of my customers are also experimenting with long hair. Throughout the growing process, they require 'intermediate' haircuts, to create a shape and a style that will work as the hair grows. Because these services are often short and sweet it's a great opportunity to pamper your clients a bit, with a nice, relaxing tonic.
Try: The Bluebeards Revenge Cuban Blend Tonic for an invigorating finish and very light hold.
I also predict a boom in wet shaves. For those who shave, the unpredictable British summer heat can often play havoc on their skin as it adapts to a change in temperature. Encourage these clients to come to you for a wet shave; not only does it make for a great, refreshing treat, it can help skin look and feel revitalised again.
Try: The Bluebeards Revenge shaving range has a fresh scent and refreshes the skin whlie providing a sensitive shave.
