The newest place for gentlemen to get themselves up to snuff is SRQ Gents where Master Stylist Jordin Donson is not just a talented gentleman groomer. She’s also a very knowledgeable source on the latest men’s hair trends for fall. It is her specialty after all.
Men and fashion trends are kind of like zesty vinaigrette. The elements involved just need to be shook up to make something beautiful (and delicious). Now you’re probably curious and possibly hungry, so we’re going to let you in on a little secret, and sorry, it’s not the best new salad spot in Sarasota.
No matter how much men don’t like to hear it, ladies love it when a guy takes care of himself. We don’t need you to spend hours grooming yourself, but we like to know that you care about how you appear and how you feel. The newest place for gentlemen to get themselves up to snuff is SRQ Gents where Master Stylist Jordin Donson is not just a talented gentleman groomer. She’s also a very knowledgeable source on the latest men’s hair trends for fall. It is her specialty after all.
According to Donson, longer styles are back. She mentions how at NYC Fashion Week not too long ago, there were “takes on 90's grunge where the sides are disconnected or undercut, and the top is left longer on the top.”
“With this look they could either wear it messy on top, giving them a bed head look, using a wax or paste such as Paul Mitchell's, Mitch Construction Paste,” says Donson. “They could slick it back using a pomade like Mitch's Barbers Classic pomade or, if it is long enough, they could wear it up in the newly popular man bun.”
Yes, guys. You heard it from the hair stylist. Man buns are in. So don’t knock it ‘til you rock it.
Donson also mentions that fades on fleek are always stylish and give guys that cleaned up look with some versatility to style it the way you want.
“Another popular trend is having enough length on top to style and a tight fade for the back and sides,” says Donson. “Side parts are very popular, with some we create a defined part by etching out a line with a razor, creating classic looks.”
Most guys detest a hair style that requires anything more than running their fingers through their hair or borrowing the girlfriend’s brush for a quick clean up. However, if you’re up for the upkeep, Donson says more guys are leaning towards styles that require just a little more styling:
“A lot of the newer trends require men to take a few minutes pick up a blow dryer, maybe even a brush and use product,” says Donson. “I've noticed in the past couple years that men aren't afraid to pick up a blow dryer anymore - they want to look good!”
And the ladies are taking note, gentlemen.
If you’re into the more rugged, intentionally unkempt look, Donson has some good news for you as far as trends go.
“The beard trend is still hot! From just a little stubble to a full length beard and anywhere in between,” Donson shares. “
One thing I would like our trendy gents out there to know is, if you are going to rock the beard, you must keep it maintained! Get it trimmed, use beard wash, oils, balms or conditioners to keep it looking, smelling and feeling good!”
