Men's hairstyles: messy vs. curly hair for fall/winter 2016

Getting the right haircut is the first step towards defining your own personal style. The second is figuring out how to wear it every day. Below you'll find two hairstyles that each have their own charm, and might just work for you: messy vs. curly hair.

Messy hair

The hairstyle: To pull off this hairstyle, hair needs to be long enough so that it can be pushed to one side once it's parted. Use pomade like Stiff Pommade by Tecni.Art from L'Oréal Professionnel to hold the style in place, without a greasy or sticky finish.

The style: "Messy-but-coiffed" hairstyles will always be on trend. They allow for so many outfit options, and will always be a guaranteed chic complement to any look!

What the editors say: Messy hair is alluring and very charming. It makes you appear like you just rolled out of bed with great hair, and didn't have to do much to look so good!

Curly hair

The hairstyle: In order to have well-defined curls, hair needs to be between 5 and 10 centimeters in length. Ask your barber or hairstylist for a style that won't make your hair frizzy and overly voluminous so that your curls stay closer to your head.

The style: Curls can help soften angular face shapes, and can make you look stylish instantly, no matter what you're wearing.

What the editors say: Curls are becoming popular and trendy again, among both men and women. If your hair is naturally straight but you'd like to get curls, a perm is always an option (yes, some men get them, especially to add natural wave to their hair!). You can also use hair styling products, like the ones from the Hollywood Waves L'Oréal Professionnel range.
