LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Long Hair, Don’t Care

Let's Hear it for the Boys

It’s like every guy is preparing for the winter season ahead of us with their long mane of hair on their heads. Farewell to the buzz cuts and crew cuts of 2011, our McGill guys are sporting long, luscious locks on campus and they look great! I spoke with a McGill Fashionisto who has been working on his flow since freshman year, and he isn’t the only one. Guys all around campus are rocking shoulder-length locks being sure to make every short-haired bro jealous. After suffering through the awkward phase of growing out your hair and you’re desired length has been acheived, it's important to take good care of your hair 'do as this Fashionisto informed me. The style is not as easy and carefree as it looks — it takes patience, time and precision to make it look just right. Here I will tell you about products made just for men to save you the embarrassment of walking down the ladies aisle in the drug store, that will help keep your flow beautiful.

Proper hair hygiene is very important. Your hair needs to be healthy and clean with enough natural oils in it in order to grow. American Crew is popular among many (it made Esquires cut for The 2010 Esquire Grooming Awards) as well are classics like Head and Shoulders for Men and Old Spice. Styling is the next important stage when it comes to your do, and each head of hair is different in what type of product to use. To tame the flyaways, use a light hairspray or styling cream like Bumble and bumble Bb. Texture Crème which “gives hair that elusive undone-yet-done quality.” When it comes to your hair, the key is less is more if you want that “long hair, don't care” look.

Hint: A downfall of long locks is that it tends to get oily quicker from the constant touching, so try only conditioning the ends of your hair to avoid it getting greasy quicker. Also, check out GQ and Men's Health for their expert hair styling advice.
