Jordi Pérez, director of La Barberia de Gràcia – the only barbershop in Spain with the 3 Michelin stars of the hairdressing sector – reviews the male hair trends that promise to give much to talk about this year. Perez, elected best barber on several occasions and pre-nominated Spanish Hairdresser of the Year 2018, is clear that the dictatorship of short hair is over. Hipsters and other worshipers of this style are going to be forced to coexist and give way to styles with much longer hair and also, the great forgotten and often reviled, in recent years, middle part hair.
As it has been demonstrated in last Fashion Weeks, specifically in London, Paris and Milan, the long hair measures are imposing with great force, although the shorts will still be there for a long time, since they have a very faithful audience that it is totally identified with very masculine, very Lumber and very retro tendencies and styles, with which an important part of men feel comfortable. But those who have other concerns and who like to follow the trends more closely, are in luck, since long hair has definitely been the protagonist in the last catwalks.
For Jordi Pérez, seeing so many models with medium lengths and even some long hair parading on the catwalks is a real pleasure, because it allows them to be more creative when it comes to working their hair.
Finally highlight that middle part hair, which so many years we have renegade – whoever is without sin, cast the first stone, confesses the director of La Barberia -, returns stomping. There are many models of the haute couture brands that have worn middle part hair in the runways mentioned previously, so we can see that 80s and 90s trends are going to continue in male hair this season and if not ask to Stranger Things or Bohemian Rhapsody fans.
