The Heartthrob Hair Trend for 2019 at Johnson Blythe Hairdressing Salon in Hertford

At Johnson Blythe Hairdressing salon in Hertford we offer a professional men’s hairdressing service with our fully trained and skilled hair stylists.  As well as offering the best men’s hair cuts and styles, we can also advise you on all the latest men’s hair trends.

We know it can be difficult for men who are growing out short hair or want to give longer hair a more up-to-date style – it’s easy for mid length hair to look simply untidy.  At Johnson Blythe luckily we have some good news for those of you struggling with this problem!  The latest hair trend for men sees the comeback of the 1990’s heartthrob hairstyle, which is ideal for mid length locks.

The look involves messy hair which is swept back off your face, or centre-parted, falling either side into “curtains”.  It’s known as a favourite look of the angel-faced Hollywood bad boy  (think Johnny Depp c.1995).   The heartthrob hairstyle was one of the biggest men’s hair trends of the 1990’s and it has now been given a 21st Century update, being modelled by celebrities including Cole Sprouse, Harry Styles and Brooklyn Beckham.

Men’s Hair Ideas for Naturally Curly Hair

The heartthrob hairstyle should never look deliberately styled or too structured.  It’s an undone look that exudes indifference and cool.  This relaxed style is ideal if you have naturally curly or wavy hair, and with some clever products you can recreate the look very easily at home, just using your fingers to style it.   We stock a great range of styling products at Johnson Blythe – speak to your stylist to find out which product would be best for your hair.

Longer Hairstyles for Gents – The Healthy Heartthrob Hairstyle

There’s something very alluring about a cool guy with long, shiny locks: perfect for running the fingers through!  Think back to those popular Head & Shoulders adverts with David Ginola for example!  Cole Sprouse is now modelling an up-to-date version of this look, with plenty of volume and shine to his hair.  Make sure you get a really great cut at Johnson Blythe and wash your hair with a professional volumising shampoo – ask your stylist which hair product would be best for your hair.

Get a Hairstyle Like Beckham!

Back in the Nineties David Beckham was considered one of the ultimate British fashion icons.  Looking back today at his blonde curtain hair of the time, and perhaps it wasn’t the best look to copy!  Thankfully his eldest son Brooklyn has now updated his dad’s most iconic style for the 21st Century and today the hairstyle should be worn with plenty of volume and less structured curtains.  You can recreate the look on your mid-length hair with a small amount of volumising & holding product.  Run your fingers up and through the front of your hair, then let the hair fall naturally either side, with strands falling to the front.  The aim is to appear effortlessly cool!

How to Achieve the Perfect Heartthrob Hairstyle – Hairstyling Tips for Men

One of the best things about the updated heartthrob hairstyle trend is the fact that it’s very low maintenance and easy to style at home.  Getting a good quality hair cut is the essential first step though, so ask you Johnson Blythe stylist to add layers to your hair, but leave the hair longer on the top and towards the front.

After washing, hair should be gently towel dried to avoid it becoming frizzy, then “scrunched” with a light cream or mousse product through the roots and length.  It should then be left to dry naturally or if you prefer,  you could use a diffuser to create more volume.  Finish off by styling your hair with your fingers to create an unstructured, natural look.
