Back of the head April 15I wish more of our popular hairstyle magazines would highlight the back and nape views of their styles. It would be really useful to have a section on short hair photographed from the back.

We often find that customers choose or get distracted by the colour and texture of the hair in the photograph rather than the style they show us; and often can’t visualise the shape of a haircut at the back and nape of the neck. Customers ask:

Is it too short…or too long…will it suit me?

Looking at a photograph of a face often gives us an idea of the back of the haircut. But we are improvising when the back is hidden, according to the clients’ hair type, and the shape we are wanting to achieve.

When we do a consultation with clients we talk through how a style will work given all these factors. Of course at the end of the appointment, when the new style is complete everyone can see the result – including at the back. This is the moment we would love magazines to capture – seeing the back of your head beautifully styled, as well as the front!
