Urban Male Haircut

Let’s look at the urban male haircut. The fastest growing market in the hair industry is mens’ hair. With men representing at least half of the population it comes as no surprise. Men want to look good and do not want to trust their GQ looks to a barber any longer. They are faithful clients who stylist can rely on to return in a timely manner. Gentlemen are even turning to color to perfect their fashionable looks and their trendy hair cuts.

Just a little color in the front








Men realize that when they look good they feel good. They know that they are more confident when they look good which can mean an edge on the competition or even a salary increase. Looking good and taking care of yourself is synonymous with success.

What is looking good for the 2011 urban man? Studio 229 Hair Design would love to show all you  beautiful men:

Great 2011 mens hair cut









Although this hair cut is a little long on top it is edgy. It has lots of texture and he is playing it up. It could be worn less dramatic. Lets look at some cuts that are men are wearing a little less dramatic.

wavy men’s hair








No problem with these men being Hands Down Handsome! Although this guy has wavy hair cropping the sides and leaving some movement on the top allows for him to show off the great texture that his hair has without being to hard for him to maintain. Sure he will have to come in to see his stylist every 3-4 weeks and this is why we love our men so much. When women are waiting 7-8 weeks we can really rely on our guys to fill in the gaps. Lets look at more hot 2011 men’s hair cuts:

2011 trend of disconnection








Although this image is not a favorite it shows a 2011-2012 trend in men’s hair cuts. That is the disconnection between the sides of the hair and the top. See how they do not blend. Because his jaw is so square it would look much better if the top of his hair was cut straight off in the back part leaving the front the same length and then add bold blond tips to his hair for a more dramatic look. He is sporting the retro sunglasses so he should put on a 50’s tie and jacket or at least a cool button down shirt to go with his look. It is about pulling off your whole look and not just part of it.

One of the best ways to keep guys looking their best at Studio 229 Hair Design and Spa is by offering them maintenance hair cuts. Maintenance hair cuts are 15 minute dry hair cuts that are free of charge and are done half way in between the regular scheduled hair cut. Most guys wear their hair shorter on the sides so a maintenance hair cut provides them with the best service for keeping the hair cut always at its best. If you get your hair cut every 5 weeks you can probably go 6 with a maintenance. Check out our web site at
