Trend Alert: 90’s Heartthrob Hair Makes a Comeback

Top Hair Trends for Men in 2019 at WESTEND Hair Salon in Glasgow

gents hair salon glasgow, Westend hairWe know how difficult it can be for men who want to either grow out their hair or give long hair a modern style.

Mid-length hair can look untidy and awkward, but at WESTEND Hair salon in Glasgow, we have great news!

The top trend for men in 2019 sees the comeback of 1990’s iconic heartthrob hair…the perfect style for mid length locks.

You’ll no doubt be familiar with the style; mussed up hair swept back off the face, falling to the side or into curtains and making women everywhere swoon.

The classic hairstyle of the tortured bad boy (think Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo & Juliet), the heartthrob hairstyle was the biggest men’s hair trend of the 90’s.

Today, male celebs such as Harry Styles, “Riverdale”star Cole Sprouse and Brooklyn Beckham have given the heartthrob hairstyle a 21st Century update.

Hair Ideas for Gents with Naturally Curly or Wavy Hair

The heartthrob hairstyle is one that must never look too styled, with a relaxed look that screams cool. This undone and low maintenance look is ideal for the man who has naturally curly or wavy hair, as with a little product and using your fingers to style, you can easily recreate the look at home.

Longer Hairstyles for Gents –  The Healthy Heartthrob Hairstyle

There’s nothing quite as attractive as a James Dean style cool man with healthy looking, shiny hair: perfect for running fingers through. There’s a reason that the David Ginola shampoo adverts were so popular, guys. Cole Sprouse looks fantastic with this modern heartthrob style, with plenty of volume and shine to his hair. Make sure to get a really great hair cut and wash your hair with a professional volumising shampoo – ask your WESTEND Hair stylist which hair product would be the best for this look.

Get a Heartthrob Hairstyle Just Like Brooklyn Beckham!

Back in the Nineties, one of the ultimate British heartthrobs was footballer David Beckham. Looking back at his gelled blonde curtains perhaps it wasn’t Becks’ best look, but thankfully for 2019 his eldest son Brooklyn has updated his dad’s most famous look. Plenty of volume and much less structured curtains is how this hairstyle should be worn. Recreate the style with a small amount of volumising & holding product, run your fingers up and through the front of your hair, and let the hair fall naturally to each side, for an effortlessly cool look.

Get the Heartthrob Hairstyle at Home – Top Hairstyling Tips for Men

The best thing about the heartthrob hairstyle trend is that it is low maintenanceand easy to style at home. Getting a really good, professional hair cutis essential so ask your WESTEND stylist for layers, with more length left on the top of the hair and towards the front.

Hair should be gently towel dried to avoid frizz and causing damage, then “scrunch” a light cream or mousse product through the roots and length – your stylist will be able to recommend the best product from Aveda or Oribe. Hair can then be left to air dry or by using a diffuser to create volume. Style sections of the hair around your fingers to create a deconstructed and natural looking hair style.
