The 90s crop
“Think Damon Albarn from Blur in his prime! Lots of messy layers through the top, and worn best with slightly over-grown fringes, effortlessly cool look!” says Rebecca Jones, Senior Barber & Salon Manager at Drakes of London, Fulham salon. A tribute to the 90s brilliance, this grunge inspired look is here to stay.
The crew cut
Simply the most versatile of all, the classic crew cut is the staple look that will never go out of fashion. Rebecca agrees that it’s one of Drakes customer’s favourites: “We’re seeing a lot of guys of all ages wanting a simple, clean, but stylish cut, something easy to manage and the crew cut offers that. Often the back and sides are kept high and tight, with just enough length left on top to get a little texture into it.”
Having a 90s nostalgia and feel tempted to let your hair loose? Well you’re in luck, as curtains are yet another timeless look that’s not been forgotten in the fashion world. Proudly worn by Brad Pitt, Chris Hemsworth and Johnny Depp, this hairstyle is perfect for men with medium to long hair, Rebecca says: “90s fashion is having a pretty big influence in the barbering world at the moment, and believe it or not we’re seeing a lot more centre partings making a comeback, worn with little product, and kept loose and natural.”
Made famous by Elvis Presley rocking it in the 50s, pompadour is a classic hairstyle that looks great on men of all ages. The flattering hairstyle is widely adopted in London’s fashion scene and is favoured by many Drakes of London customers: “Scissor-cut pompadours are very popular right now, worn with minimal, light product to embrace the hairs natural movement, this is great for those growing out harsh undercuts or those a bit fed up with the maintenance of the slick back.”
