From James Dean’s carefree quiff to George Clooney’s salt-and-pepper caesar, perhaps nothing says more about a man (“I’m a rebel without a cause” and “I’m a playboy doctor”, respectively) than his hair. Stylesight has traced the evolution of the grooming category at length, and now, here comes AskMen’s definitive guide to men’s hair, titled, simply, The Hair Manual.
After analyzing site stats and general feedback, the popular online lifestyle magazine discovered that hair was a leading area of interest (and much inquiry) among visitors. And so The Hair Manual was born. The comprehensive eBook breaks down all aspects of the ‘do step by step, from picking the best style for your face shape and hair texture to how to complement that coif with the right clothes – all accompanied by illustrative photographs and advice from experts and tastemakers, albeit real men, like André 3000 and Billy Reid.
Expanding on AskMen’s online guides, The Hair Manual also includes a list of top barbershops in North America, as well as handy how-to’s and cheat sheets for every follicular need. As AskMen editor Sachin Bhola writes in the foreword, “The Hair Manual doesn’t just provide the answers; it gives you the tools to be secure with your looks.”
The Hair Manual is available now on Amazon in easily navigable digital format for super-convenient reference.
