Ted’s Master Barber’s 2016 style Predictions

By Adam Friday 22nd Jan, 2016
Ted’s Master Barber has put together his must-have looks to watch out for in 2016.
New looks
Textured Quiff
  • While slick-backs and pompadours have reigned supreme over the past year, this quiff with a difference is set to be a standout style for 2016. Ask for a number six (or longer) on top with the “fringe” area left long, tapering into a four. Work Ted’s Hair Putty through your hair before forming the rugged quiff by clasping with your fingertips and slanting away at a side angle.  Finish with a twist.
Longer hair with shorter sides
  • High contrast slick-backs were a key feature of 2015- now we’re ready for a more mature sweeping style. Ask your barber to thin out the top and leave your length alone, while trimming the sides down so the hair falls naturally.

Going Nowhere
Side Parting
  • The classic cut that’s no less classy now then when it first appeared in the Mad Men era. A low maintenance style that won’t fall flat throughout the day, the side parting allows you to head straight from your desk to the dance floor. Ask your barber for one inch on the back and sides, with up to four inches of length on top. Before you head out, slick a comb through wet hair to set a natural parting and use Ted’s Hair Gel to create a slick, professional look that doubles up as an elegant party style.
Say goodbye to…
Skull Fades with Textured Tops
  • Also known the “pineapple head,” this skull fade and spiked top combination looks like it will be left to rest in the 2015 time capsule, along with cronuts and flower beards.
