Hi folks, I hope this article finds you prosperous and in good health, but mostly in good health!
Now, let’s talk about one of the biggest hair problem that most men have.
I have had a million calls on this article!
A lot of people said they heard about it but didn’t get a chance to read it, so I thought I would run it again.
This is for all you men who are experiencing this very frustrating problem, I know it will help tremendously if you follow the advise in this column!
Most people think of Chrissy’s Hair Salon as one of the top hair salons for hair coloring, corrective hair coloring, hair styling, etc.
While that’s all true, did you know that almost half of our clients are men!
It seems no matter where I go, some guy will come up to me and say “I read your article in Shop RI, It was good, but when are you going to write something about men”?
So I started thinking, what is the one hair problem that the majority of men are facing, and the obvious answer is thinning hair!
For millions of men, losing their hair is a harsh reality.
Many times men are tempted to compensate for their hair loss by growing what hair they have as long as they can or, even worse, resorting to the dreaded “comb over”.
However, going bald doesn’t have to mean a lifetime of bad hairstyles.
“ Most of the time a great haircut & maybe some color (color thickens the hair) is all that is necessary and the receding temples are less noticed”.
This hairstyle takes the focus away from where the hair isn’t and places it on where the hair is.
If you style the hair you have well, the thinner areas fade into the background.
As the bald spot grows many men are tempted to resort to the comb over.
No matter what you think, a comb over—growing your hair long on top, parting it to the side and combing it over the balding area—fools no one and NEVER LOOKS GOOD!
Growing hair long in the back to make up for a receding hairline will only draw more attention to your hair loss.
Cutting the hair really short, greatly lessens the obvious contrast between where there is –and isn’t hair –and actually makes the large bald spots much less noticeable.
TIPS & WARNINGS
You should feel comfortable talking about how to effectively style your hair, to make it appear more full.
Thinning hair is a sensitive topic, but remember, “almost every man” experiences this problem, but with the right haircut and the right hair stylist, and getting a trim about every three weeks, it is amazing how good you will look! (That’s a promise)!
Now, are you ready for this?
For men only, if you are a new client and for one time only, Chrissy’s will give you a discount on your haircut, and the discount will be according to how old you are.
For instance, if you are 40 years old, you will get a 40% discount, 50 years old, a 50% discount, etc. etc. Just show your driver’s license, and get the best haircut you’ve ever had, no if’s, and’s or but’s!!!
But you must buy “the right products for your particular hair”, because the wrong products will absolutely not help.
You and your stylist should evaluate your hair’s reaction to the products and adjust your thinning hair haircut accordingly. The added thickness may allow you to be more creative with your haircut.
We will make you look great, no matter how much hair loss you may be experiencing!
And again, (That’s a promise)!
