Metro Man & Metro Home

The mild weather of spring is starting to give way to the sweltering days of summer. That means it’s time to starting thinking about the beach, swimwear, hitting the gym a few extra times, and probably getting a base tan. But what about your hair?

Men’s hair is typically short, but come summer when the city is hot and humid it’s time to trim it down just a bit more to stay cool. We spoke with David Kastin over at Cutler Salon in SoHo, and this is what’s hot this summer, besides the subway station.

Cutler Salon offers its patrons the highest quality service, in a friendly, hip modern environment. At the SoHo location they use two lines of products, Redken & Cutler’s own line.

“Hair is trending towards a shorter look,” said David. We are seeing a lot more men wearing their hair pulled back from the face. They are keeping it short, and a little on the messy side. Men today are not keeping their hair in a manner where it looks well planned, when in fact it is. The look is almost starting to border on bed head.

Even though hair is “looking a little unkempt,” men are still putting a lot of effort into it. At Cutler Salon they use Redken Rough Paste to keep hair in perfectly locked into that slightly unruly look, without the appearance of product being present.

Of course not all men can afford to walk into work looking even one iota “unkempt.” Someone who is required to wear a white shirt and a tie with no more than two colors in it obviously will not have as much freedom with their hair as someone who can stroll into work in blue jeans and an un-tucked shirt. David thoughtfully considers what each of his customers does for a living before pointing them in one direction or another. “I like to tailor the her to suit the person.”

When thinking about your new summer style make sure to keep in mind your personal look. Don’t go with a style that just isn’t you. There is nothing wrong with trying something different, but sometimes you’ll find that what is familiar is often best, or close to it.
