Your hair can make or break your appearance, so choose your hairstyle wisely! For the professional man, a classic barber haircut is ideal, but should you get a fade, pompadour, or undercut? According to Canton Barber’s Barber Manager Sam Wong (see left), it all depends on your personality and needs. “The office worker may want a more conservative style – perhaps a sleek pompadour – which is trimmed closely around the edges for a tidy look,” he says. “If you work outdoors, consider a short skin fade or even a buzz cut.” And if you’re a sporty person, you may like to layer it or get a crew cut.
What if you’re an active guy with an office job? “The trick is to use different products to change your style,” says Wong. “A matte pomade, for example, gives a more natural look, while the oil-based pomade is best for the shiny, slicked-back style.” The latter is hard to wash out, however, so many now prefer the water-based version, which also allows for easy rework during the day.
