It is the ultimate get-up-and-go cut…
The Dishevelled Look This type of hairstyle looks great on most face shapes, although I would avoid leaving too much width on the sides if you have a rounder face. In this instance, simply ask your stylist to keep them slightly more tapered.
Even though I wouldn’t class this haircut as high maintenance, ideally you would get it tidied up every three to four weeks to keep it looking its best. For those of you who visit your stylist less frequently, try getting the sides cut a bit shorter than you usually would to stop them from growing out too quickly and ruining the proportions of the style.
Look to maintain some movement within the entire haircut. Having the style cut with a razor accentuates natural movement, especially if your hair is slightly coarser in texture. As a stylist, I would razor the back and sides and then point cut the shape on top.
Whether it’s been cut with scissors or a razor, it’s important that your stylist creates a strong shape with neat edges. There also needs to be a lot of texture through the top, in order to prevent it appearing ‘blocky’. By adding texture, I mean the hair should be ‘cut into’ and not thinned out. This is so the haircut maintains its density – otherwise it will look too ‘fluffy’ when styled.

So there you have it, an easy to maintain, stylish AND practical hairstyle to consider this winter. Yes, the quiff and short back and sides are timeless classics, but a slightly less precise, dishevelled cut can help breathe new life and a sense of character into your look.
