You’re sitting at home running out of things to do. You walk around your humble abode, hoping that an idea will pop into your head of something that you can do to pass the time. When ambling past the mirror, something gets your attention. You ask yourself, ‘why is there a nest on my head?’, until you realise that it's actually just your hair. It's gone out of control since your barbers or hairdressers had to close. You then decide that it’ll be a great idea to get a home haircut. A lot of guys have either experienced this situation or know at least one friend who has felt like this. I wanted to get a hair professional’s view on the average person taking the scissors into their own hands.
So, I caught up with hairstylist, Ryan Cullen for a chat. Ryan has been cutting hair for the past 15 years. Ryan’s love for art, fashion and people made hair dressing a no-brainer as a career choice. He specialises in men’s hair but also enjoys cutting women’s hair. When he’s not working at his salon (which is normally fully booked), he gets to travel around teaching his trade.
When the temperatures begin to fall, and you notice the days getting chillier you know that summer has departed. You adapt your wardrobe so that you’ll be able to take on the elements and some think it stops there. Hair care is sometimes forgotten about and as a result the products you use may not be appropriate for the weather.
