Men's Get the Look
British Hairdressing nominee Craig Chapman breaks down this rough around the edges style.
For me, the dynamics of gent's hairdressing has created a freedom of expression, drawing inspiration from many past eras. This look, 'The Vamp', takes inspiration from the mood of the 1980's classic,
The deeply shaven side helps exaggerate the extended length of the back and the fringe area, making a more disconnected and dramatic feel and keeping a rebellious mood to the cut. Texture is key with this look, allowing natural movement to dominate. Waves, flicks and kicks are prominent; the unkempt feel conflicts with the neat, sharp, shaven side section.
Product-wise, salt spray was added to the hair while damp, then the hair was finger dried to encourage movement and create that 'undone' feel, whilst creating hold. It was finished with a texture powder to add extra volume and hold. Worn with sharp styling this look means business!
