Communication in the digital age is about understanding and being understood. Emails, texting, tweeting and online social media all rely on written text. Text on a page lacks emotion. It can be hard to interpret. We use text tools such as bold, italics and underline to help us improve our messages.

Hair can make a statement, too. Be sure your male clients’ hair is sending the right message.

This is my ClipperGuy 2014 Men’s haircut collection, FONT. My collection features three looks, the Bold, the Underline and the Italics.

The modern twist is the added top length and the disconnected side partings. The partings are hard etched with a trimmer for enhanced distinction.  
  click image to zoomThe Underline is my updated take on the early 1990’s skater undercut. The classic element is the clippered sides and back with the longer interior overhang. The update is the undercutting across the front hairline and the strong, modern lining and edging used to deliver the crisp edge finish.

All three FONT collection shapes share the common design elements of classic blending punctuated with disconnection and some added interior length.

All three cuts in my FONT collection carry late 1980’s and early 1990’s influences. The classic Mullet, the Skater and the Buzz & Spike can all be seen as influences in their modern descendants.

My ClipperGuy FONT collection cuts present options for styles in short, medium and long lengths.

I will share these cuts at classes, shows and events throughout 2014. Their major event debut will be at America’s beauty Show in Chicago in just a few weeks.

I look forward to sharing these cuts on manikins and live models at shows. I welcome your input as to how you use these cuts in pure form or excise adapted elements into your client’s looks in the coming year.

Happy clippering.
