The Dapper Dad

Although men’s hairstyles don’t change as dramatically as women’s from season to season, there are a couple of men’s trends that are going to stand head and shoulders about the rest this summer.

Slicked back

The Great Gatsby movie is a big influence in fashion for men this summer. Hair for guys is very groomed and clean, even slicked back with a move toward side parts for a refined, formal look. We’ll see a lot more shine, using pomades and gloss products to finish the style and keep it looking great all day.

Not SlickedThe alternative to this buttoned-down style keeps the sides closely trimmed, but leaves the hair longer, and more textured on top, for a taller “bed-head” look or a smoothed pompadour. To add more personality to the cut, color can be smudged through the tips towards the front to give it a shot of character and individuality.    

facial hairOf course, one of the biggest trends for men is facial hair. Beards and mustaches are everywhere and sideburns are getting longer and fuller. Looks that range from clean and short to wild, pre-civil war serious facial hair are all the rage, allowing men to be creative with their style.

Let us help you find your own style. Stop by Planet Hair at 504 E. Douglas anytime for a free consultation!

ArtAID 17 – Sideshow Sets New Record!

ArtAID17 set new recordsThanks to everyone who helped make ArtAID 17-Sideshow a huge success.  The biggest year in the history of ArtAID, we helped raise an amazing $115,000 for Positive Directions through ticket sales, silent and live art auctions, and the pre-event Cocktail Party. This incredible 25 percent increase over last year’s event will help Positive Directions with the resources they need to continue to provide quality support, housing, and meal services to their growing client base of people living in our community with HIV and AIDS.

Our staff, sponsors, art contributors, guest artists, dancers, and models did an incredible job entertaining a nearly sold out audience at the Cotillion on October 9th. If you missed this year’s event, stop by the salon and see the video of our breathtaking fashion show for yourself. 

 Join the ArtAID Facebook group to stay up on what we have planned for next year’s show. Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 8, 2010 for ArtAID 18!
