Women find this attractive, as do prospective employers. For your convenience, we have outlined several on-trend hairstyles that are currently popular in Chicago.
The Textured Fringe
This look is characterized by short hair along the sides of the head and towards the crown of the head. The hair on top is left longer and is heavily layered to add texture and depth using a point-cutting technique. This haircut is easy to style and to maintain. It is cut in a way that when it grows out, it is meant to blend in with the rest of the hair so that you do not need to get it touched up so often. This haircut is perfect for men with medium-thick hair that is not too curly.
The Bald Fade
The bald fade is perfect for those Chicago clients who have thick, coarse or unruly hair. Your hairstylist will shave your hair super short along the sides and fade it into a half guard buzz on top. This is very low-maintenance and easy to style. In fact, it requires no styling at all! This is suitable for any hair type, as it is so short.
Classic Side Part
This haircut is characterized by a part on the side of the hair. The hair will be cut slightly longer on the sides and even longer on top, so that it can be swept back or to the side. This look is suitable for those clients who have straight or wavy hair. For this style, pomade is a man’s best friend. Think of Elvis Presley, James Dean and Ryan Gosling. All of these celebrities have rocked this classic look. For a more fashion-forward style, consider asking your Chicago hairstylist for a “weighted line”. This is a graphic, clear part in your hair that makes an obvious distinction between lengths in the hair.
Long hair is very popular in Chicago due to its ease of maintenance and versatility. This style is perfect for all hair textures ranging from coarse to fine and straight. This style looks great when the hair is resting just below the chin, at shoulder length. For some added texture, work a little styling cream into it for that rock and roll look. Men with coarse hair can add some braids or dreads to give it a modern, artsy feel.
