This Autumn's On-Trend Men's Hair Styles | How To Look After Your Hair | What Styling Products To Use
In this month's Dear Barber "5 Minutes On..." we focus in on men's hair during the Autumn/Fall season. We'll take a look at what's hot and what's not in terms of styles, how to look after your hair when the days get shorter and what styling products will get the job done.
So, top up your Spiced Pumpkin Lattes ;-) and take 5 mins...
On Trend Men's Hair Styles Autumn/Fall 2023
Having drifted in and out of fashion for years we are seeing clients requesting their hair super short on the sides with longer lengths on top as we head into the colder months of the year.
The idea here being that the hair on top looks "disconnected" from the sides and instead of the regular fade from side to top there is a starker contrast between short and long hair.

The Regulation Cut
Attennnnnnnnn-tion! Perhaps the longest length cut acceptable in the US Army, the Regulation Cut is an easy-to-manage, bang-on-trend hair style this coming Autumn/Winter 2023.
The top of the hair is trimmed to a short length (normally a 3 guard) with the sides tapered off. To complete this style the hair on top is usually styled in a neat side part.
And there are plenty of benefits to this style: it's low maintenance, is really practical, looks great and works in almost any environment (work or pleasure).
So straighten that back up soldier, and order up a Regulation Cut next time you're on weekend leave!
Most definitely not militarily approved the other major hair style set to feature this Autumn/Winter is the legendary Mullet.
Traditionally associated with shorter front and sides with length out the back, this year, however, we expect to see an overall much shorter length to the Mullet.
Moving things on from the 80's looks of Bowie and Swayze, don't be surprised to see a much softer graduation and even pairing up the mullet with a blunt fringe/French crop at the front to make things truly 2023/4.

Men's Hair Care During Autumn/Fall 2022
Your hair will be exposed to plenty of changes in temperature as you move from outdoor cool to indoor heat and you'll likely be donning a hat of some sort this Autumn as well. All that heat and friction can interfere with your hair's natural structure, so give your hair a helping hand by using a great quality conditioner at least once a week. It will help to maintain your hair's form better as well as preventing it from becoming brittle and dry.
Tis The Season To De-Dandruff
In the colder months of the year your scalp will often become drier than in summer when the natural oils that your hair produces work well to keep skin hydrated. This dryness can often result in what can become "dandruff season". Not to worry, just work in a gentle anti-dandruff shampoo to your regular washing routine to help remove the issue before it begins. Here at DB Towers we love Recipe For Men's cooling Anti Dandruff Shampoo. If your case is particularly severe you may want to discuss with your local pharmacist for something medicated to help.
Men's Hair Styling Products Autumn/Fall 2023
High-Five To High Shine
With shorter cuts being the go-to this Autumn we'll be seeing them styled a lot sleeker in appearance meaning high-shine and wet look finishes will be on point.
Utilize a high quality pomade (like our much-loved Strong Hold Pomade) to slick your hair back or across and give your style a neater, more polished finish.

Volumize To Beat Hat Hair
For those sporting longer styles this Fall make use of lightweight volumizing and texturizing styling products such as a sea salt spray or hair powder.
Changes in temperature, gusts of wind on your commute and hat hair can leave your hair looking flat. Applying a quick spray of Texturizing Sea Salt Spray or a sprinkle of Mattifier Hair Dust can instantly reclaim your hair's natural volume with minimal effort.
