A Well Coiffed Man

Personal style doesn't include just the shirt on your back or the shoes on your feet; it’s the total presentation...and that includes your 'do.

The website Fashionising discusses three men's hair trends for 2009. The first cut is called "The Fringe". I prefer to call it the Roger in honor of stylist Rachel Zoe's husband. I probably shouldn’t share this, but I think Roger is kind of hot. Of course he could look even better if he were sporting a black label J Hilburn shirt. Call me, Roger, and we'll set up a time to measure you ;). Next is the "Slick Back", personified by the always stylish George Clooney. Finally, there's "The Classic Part", a favorite look of the timeless American gentleman, Cary Grant. Each style is very dapper in its own right and they all complement the new modern looking, but classically influenced, trend in men's clothing.

Knowing the hairstyle you want is only the first step. Finding the perfect hair stylist takes time and patience, but I have some recommendations that may be of help in this department. Laurel Berg's Groove Salon has a large and happy male clientele and you get a cold beer with every cut (2 if you drink fast and wine if you prefer). Another spot worth investigating is the hip and funky Barber Lounge in SOMA.
