Did you know that men make up a significant part of Globe Salon’s loyal clientele? It’s true, and it makes sense. Our location makes us an ideal choice not only for office professionals who require neat-and-clean men’s cuts, but also for those guys working in hospitality and nightlife who want something a little more trendy or edgy. Plus, our salon’s upscale, hospitality-inspired design is comfortable for most everyone.

For some time, we have been doing a lot of men’s haircuts in the popular “barber style,” most of them the Gentlemen’s Cut we saw first adopted by bartenders in cocktail bars and Prohibition-styled speakeasies. You know the look: super short on the sides, with a hard part and a highly styled pompadour up top. It’s little bit Morrissey-meets-Public Enemies Johnny Depp, and in the past six months, it has transcended to something that almost every man wants, and there’s good reason. It’s at once stylish, neat, and masculine.

But like any trend that penetrates into the mainstream, some of the early adopters are wanting to move on to something new. Growing out a short haircut is never easy (something women who opt for the ultra-hot pixie know… or soon will!), but for those men who’d like to move away from the Gentlemen’s Cut, Globe Salon has an answer: the classic, 1950s surfer-inspired look. This style is way more Endless Summer than Spicoli, more dapper than Duuuuuude!

It incorporates a longer-length top that transitions into a slightly undercut weight line below. A great thing about this cut is that it is more versatile than that barber-style cut you are growing out. It can be worn more formally, with the top length styled into either a classic side part or swept straight back, using a wax or paste (like Kerastase’s K Baume or Bumble + bumble’s SemiSumo). Then, when the weekend hits (or you find yourself surfing), it can easily be styled into a more relaxed look, using a texture-enhancing product like Spray-A-Porter (Kerastase) or Bumble + bumble’s Surf Spray — all available at Globe Salon.

If you are still thrilled with the Gentlemen’s Cut, there’s no need to change; you are in good hands at Globe. But when you are ready for something new, something easy to transition to, Globe Salon has a plan for you. Everything about this cut makes it easy to grow into from the barber cut. With a few week’s growth, it works well no matter how severe you went, and it will continue to work as your hair grows out.

So, guys, ready for a change? Give Globe Salon a call!
