What are the top men’s haircut trends for Summer 2018 in Bristol?

A few of our male hairdressing clients were chatting this week about the top men’s haircuts for Summer 2018 in Bristol, so we decided to write a blog post about what we think will be the hottest looks for men this year.

men's haircut trends Summer 2018 Bristol

We recently wrote a blog post about the latest trends in gents’ hairdressing in Bristol – visit here to find out more.

One of the most popular Summer haircuts for men at our central Bristol hair salon remains the Textured Crop Haircut.

The crop has been a haircut that’s remained popular for over 12 months, and our central Bristol hairdressers expect to see more men going for it this Summer. The biggest factor is texture throughout plus choosing either a blunt fringe or choppy, textured look. We offer a full and free consultation to men.

Another popular men’s haircut will be the Short Textured Quiff Haircut – particularly after the change by David Beckham from longer locks to a low-maintenance men’s haircut for the Summer.

It’s a versatile Summer hairstyle for men who want a shorter cut but also a hairstyle that doesn’t need too much work in the morning. It works best with texture and a loose, unstructured look.

A third favourite men’s hairstyle for Summer will be the Classic Short Back & Sides Haircut, which is perfect for office workers looking for a stylish cut.

This look has made a big comeback recently, particularly after films such as Dunkirk and Harry Styles wearing this look with dramatic effect in the movie.

We recommend using a matte clay or paste product to style this look, but it can also be upgraded with a low fade or taper on the sides to modernise it.

One of the favourite Summer hairstyles for men in Bristol is also a Natural Side Parting Haircut, which is effectively a twist on the classic side parting.

It’s the perfect smart haircut for Summer for men, and is a great look for guys who want to look smart but with a natural and relaxed look. Using a medium-strength matte paste to style this men’s hairstyle produces the best look.

Men with Long and Wavy Hair will also be another popular choice at our Bristol hair salon, as Summer weather is good for longer, loose styling.

The skin fades of 2017 have moved more towards longer locks during the Winter months, and we’ve seen that male hairdressing clients are now looking to go for a more relaxed and tousled look if their hair is longer or very curly.

Using a sea salt spray is the best way to enhance natural curls and long hair.

Another fantastic men’s hairstyle to watch out for this Summer in Bristol will be the Soft Undercut, first made popular in 2016 with Brad Pitt in the hit movie Fury. It’s a great men’s haircut to match up with a long beard.

Utilising a clean fade on the side and back provides a smart casual look that’s really versatile at both the office and the beach.

Our Bristol hairdressers can guide and advise on the best men’s Summer haircut to match your face shape, hair type, and hair regime.

Solar Sublime Summer hair care products at our Bristol hair salon

Our clients have been asking for recommendations on Summer hair care products available at our Bristol hair salon on Baldwin Street, and we’ve got two fantastic products from the Solar Sublime range for this year.

Summer hair care products Bristol

The hotter weather is a potential hazard, as many clients can get sun-damaged hair, dried-out and dehydrated as well as chemical damage from chlorine in swimming pools.

The Solar Sublime range is designed specifically to provide hair care for Summer and sun protection products for clients spending time outdoors.

We highly recommend the entire range for clients to include in their holiday suitcase, and it forms an essential part of any Summer hair care regime.

This year, we have two firm favourites in the Solar Sublime range for 2018.

The first Solar Sublime product our Bristol hair care experts love is the Conditioning Spray – a light, leave-in mist formulation containing Mexoryl SO and delivering instant conditioning protection for hair during sun exposure.

It has a non-greasy texture, and helps to shield hair from drying effects whilst also leaving it looking shiny. All that’s needed is a simple spritz to improve hair protection during the Summer.

Apply onto damp or dry hair, paying particular attention to lengths and ends. Leave the conditioning spray product in and re-apply during the day as required. It’s a light product with a tropical smell, so is versatile for all clients.

The second Solar Sublime sun protection product we’re recommending to clients this Summer is the After-Sun Nourishing Balm.

This creamy and luxurious balm lavishes hair with intense post-sun protection, and also contains Mexoryl SO. It helps hair fibres to recover from heat.

Also providing UV-protection, this Nourishing Balm leaves hair feeling refreshed and hydrated after exposure to Summer sun, and our clients love it.

The Balm helps to de-tangle hair and deliver a nourishing boost at the same time. This is an absolute must for any holiday suitcase this year.

To see the full range of Solar Sublime hair care products, Summer hair care tips, hair moisturizing treatments, hair care, highlighting, hairdressing, British Hair products, hairstyling equipment, hair straighteners, hair curlers, curling wands, men’s hairdressing, hair treatments, hairstyling services, hair toning, hair colouring, haircuts, creative cutting, gents hairstyling, hair styling equipment, haircuts, and hair extensions we offer, please get in touch here.
