The Heartthrob Hair Trend at West Man Barber Shop in Westhill Aberdeen

At West Man hair salon in Westhill we offer a professional men’s hairdressing service with our fully trained barbers.  As well as offering the best men’s hair cuts and styles, we can advise you on all the latest men’s hair trends.

We know it can be difficult to keep your hair tidy when you are growing out short hair or want to give longer hair a more up-to-date style.  It’s easy for mid length hair to look a mess, but at West Man we have some good news for those of you struggling with this problem!  The latest trend for men sees the comeback of the Nineties heartthrob hairstyle, which will work perfectly for those of you with mid length locks.

The look involves deliberately messy hair which is either swept back off the face, or centre-parted, falling into curtains.  It was a favourite hairstyle of the bad boy with the angel face (think Johnny Depp c.1995) and was one of the biggest men’s hair trends of the 1990s.  It has now been brought right up to date for the 21st Century by celebrities including Cole Sprouse, Harry Styles and Brooklyn Beckham.

Hair Ideas for Men with Naturally Curly Hair

The heartthrob hairstyle should never look overly styled or too structured.  It’s meant to look undone in a way that speaks of indifference and cool.  This relaxed style is ideal if you have naturally curly or wavy hair, as with some clever products you can very easily create the look at home.  Just use your fingers to style it.   We stock a wide range of styling products at West Man – speak to our barbers to find out which product would be best for your hair.

Longer Hairstyles for Gents – The Healthy Heartthrob Hairstyle

There’s something very alluring about a cool man with long, shiny locks: perfect for running fingers through!  Think back to those popular Head & Shoulders adverts with David Ginola!  Cole Sprouse is now modelling an up-to-date version of this look, with plenty of volume and shine to his hair.  Make sure you get a really great cut at West Man and wash your hair with a professional volumising shampoo – ask your West Man barber which hair product would work best for you.

Get a Hairstyle Like Beckham!

Back in the Nineties footballer David Beckham was probably the ultimate British fashion icon.  Looking back at his crispy blonde curtain hair of the time, perhaps it wasn’t the best look to copy today, but thankfully his eldest son Brooklyn has now updated his dad’s famous style for the 21st Century.  These days the hairstyle should be worn with plenty of volume and the curtains should be less structured.  You can recreate the look by using a small amount of volumising & holding product.  Run your fingers up and through the front of your hair, and let the hair fall naturally either side, with a few strands falling to the front.  The aim is to achieve an effortlessly cool look!

How to Achieve the Perfect Heartthrob Hairstyle at Home – Hairstyling Tips for Men

One of the best things about the updated heartthrob hairstyle trend is the fact that it’s so low maintenance and easy to style at home.  Getting a great hair cut is the vital first step though, so ask you West Man barber to add layers to your hair , but leave it longer on the top and towards the front.

After washing, hair should be towel dried to avoid any frizz, then “scrunched” using a light cream or mousse product through the roots and length.  Your hair should then be left to dry naturally or if you prefer, you could use a diffuser hair dryer to create volume.  Finish off by using your fingers to create an unstructured, natural looking hair style.
