Topknots have become a popular style amongst men, especially those who are into the hipster trend.

While there critics that deem the man bun as being emasculating, it has been proven time and time again that men can rock this style without having their macho card revoked.

The history of the top knot can be traced back to Japanese Samurais, Vikings and even ancient India, so it’s pretty safe to say that manly men rocking buns is nothing new. If you’re interested in giving the top knot a try, no matter if you’re rocking a tapered cut or a head full of locks.

Here are some of my favourite knots.

The Warrioe Braid 2

 

The Warrior Braid

January is always a great time to review what your hair styles have been the last 12 months or what you want to achieve in the next 12 months. Keep growing? Take the plunge and get adventurous with going shorter or changing your colour. My predictions are dimensional colours, lobs with texturised ends, mens sharp high fades with facial hair taken into consideration. Slick up-dos and tousled ponytails.

 

Here are a few inspirational picks.

hair breakage 3

 

Too many times I often see hair breakage around the face, particularly on blondes.

This occurs with excessive blow-drying colouring and the use of straightening irons.

Naturally this hair is finer than the rest of the hair and susceptible to damage.

There’s a tendency to style the hair around the face more than the back for obvious reasons.

What to do :

  • Ask your colourist to use a gentle creme lightener around your hairline. A low-strength colour will achieve the desired results because the hair is finer.

  • Avoid pulling hair back tightly in a pony tail or bun as stretching the finer hair continuously will stress the hair to breakage. Spraying the hair down to achieve a sleek pulled back look is a great preventative.

  • Adding thermal heat protector to your blow drying regime will increasingly strengthen the hair and avoid breakage. These products really work!
