The Ivy League Haircut


Q&A with style creator, Gemma Davies
Stylist @ R & G Barbershop in Crediton, Devon

How would you describe this look?

This look is a classic fade suitable for teen boys. The best about it is the smooth flow from top to bottom giving it the natural look.

Any advice for someone considering it?

You need to be aware of the natural direction of your hair and that blow drying may be essential to create this look.

A matte finish product is used to finish the look with the use of fingers to create texture as a pose to a sleek finish. The haircut suits all lifestyles as it a very classic look and there is nothing too extreme about this cut.

The Side Part Combover


Q&A with style creator, Abigail Fernández
Stylist @ Johnny’s Barbershop in Los Angeles, CA

How would you describe this look?

This teen boy’s haircut is of classic style that’s ideal for all ages. Thanks to the products of today, you can give a natural look for every day, and for something more formal you can use ointment and hair dryer, which keep its essence classic-elegant but at the same time modern.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I like this type of cut because it is very gentle to all face shapes. It is recommended to make the hair more manageable with light products. If the hair is rebellious, there are different types of products from a gel with extra strong fixation or heavy ointment to achieve a stiff effect. That depends on the client’s need and their hair type.

The products that I personally use and recommend are from the Gentlemen Republic because they have ointments of various types from soft to heavy natural shine and matte high fixing gel. That’s why I like them because they have for each need of different people.

Cornrows for Black Guys


Q&A with style creator, Aramide Dada
Hair Braider @ Curlz of Glory in Madison, WI

How would you describe this look?

This look is a protective hairstyle that not only saves you time in the morning but also turns head. The coolest thing about this teen guys haircut is the angle of the parts. It gives the braids a unique style that makes it stand out.

Any advice for someone considering it?

To ensure that this braided hairstyle lasts a week, I will suggest that the client wears a du-rag to sleep and prevents the braids from getting wet while showering. This will prevent the hair from becoming frizzy quickly. I will also suggest that the client oil his scalp every two days or whenever it starts to itch. Constant scratching of the scalp can not only frizz up the hairstyle, but it can also irritate the scalp.
