The Barrel Cut - A Men's Classic
This hairstyle for men is not new. But it never goes out of fashion either. The Fasson cut is trendy in 2021 and will be for years to come. The big advantage is that this style is absolutely changeable. Besides the French word façon, the ever-trendy men's hairstyle is also called fade cut or also fade hairstyle. They all have one thing in common: the top coat is longer, while the sides and nape of the neck are kept neatly short.
A hairstyle for every age
A flowing cut. A true all-rounder. The barrel cut has a huge plus. It can be created to suit any head, any hair and any age. The undercut, for example, is perfect for young men. In this way, no two looks are alike. On the contrary. This haircut can be created absolutely individually. Many cut variations allow the men's hairdresser or barber absolute creative freedom, just like the man as a customer.
What is special about the barber's cut?
The façon is a fade cut. Hairstyles where the hair is short on the sides and nape and kept longer towards the top coat. This transition from short to longer hair helps to cleverly cover up small blemishes. It is important that the natural growth direction of the hair and the head shape are taken into account. A good hairdresser knows how to deal with swirls & co. so that the haircut lies well after the cut.
What makes the difference?
The particular transition is an important detail in a barrel cut. Depending on preference, the man decides whether the transitions should be more flowing or striking. Where the lines end at the sides and back of the head also plays a role in the overall look. Hard transitions make for a cool, young hairstyle. If the transitions flow smoothly into one another, the result is a more classic style.
Which styling for the barrel cut?
For fine and overall thinner hair, it is recommended to style the hair upwards. In general, however, experimentation is the order of the day. Personal taste decides how the fade hairstyle looks in the end. You can also style the fade sideways. The structure is important. The more structured the hair, the more expression there is in this haircut. Matte styling products that emphasise the structure of the hair are recommended. Younger people can go a little wilder when styling.
Fasson cut as the basis for the pompadour.
Hot again are hairstyles from past decades. For example, the quiff or pompadour. This 50's rock'n roll style needs a lot of hair and volume. And instead of a matte styling cream or paste, use products such as gel or pomade. The style with a conspicuous quiff gave stars like James Dean a certain sex appeal. The generous blow-dry quiff on the top of the head is based on a first-class haircut in which the top hair is much longer, while the nape and sides are kept short with clear contours.
Who does the barrel cut suit?
As described at the beginning, this haircut actually suits every man. So it's no wonder that this cut is one of the most popular men's hairstyles and is never out of fashion. Depending on how a man styles his look, it becomes a modern hairstyle or retains its classic touch. The barrel is the perfect hairstyle for the office, ideal for everyday life and not very time-consuming when it comes to maintenance. It is important to have the contours sharpened regularly so that no unkempt impression is created.
What should a man look out for?
Bald spots on the sides or neck don't look so good. They also can't be hidden with a facial cut. Either you decide on other hairstyles or you have your hair shortened at the sides and back so that the areas with less hair are hardly noticeable. It is best to seek professional advice from a barber or barber's shop. A barber's cut is only the basis for a variety of looks. It is important that a man feels comfortable with his hairstyle.
