Men’s Hair Tips Illustrated With the Men’s Olympic Swimming Team

Sure you can go all in on your suit and shoes but the right hair can make or break your look. Getting hair right can be tricky, luckily we chatted with Julien Farel’s men’s colorist Aidan Harty to guide you past a few common pitfalls men stumble into when it comes to hair. We used the some of our favorite #TeamUSA swimmers to illustrated Aidan’s points.  

GOING TOO LIGHT: Most guys tend to go too light or too dark, stay within a natural range of hair color.

Ryan Lochte may be able to get away with the bleach look, but if your office isn’t a olympic sized swimming pool, stick to natural hues like Aidan suggests. 



HIGHLIGHTS: Keep it subtle and natural, if it’s overdone, it’s a turnoff.

LONG HAIR: For those going grey with long hair, consider lowlights. Low lights also seamlessly blend in the salt and pepper look.

Not that grays seems to be a problem for Cody Miller, his long, rich colored locks are #goals.

STYLING PRODUCTS: Use the right product for your hair texture!  Otherwise, it will make fine hair look thinner or greasy hair dirty.

When you have as many press events a Phelps the right styling product is a must. Next time you get your hair cut talk to your hair stylist for what works best with your texture and have them show you how to use the product in your hair.
