Preppy hairstyles can look great and really add to your sense of style, especially if you favour the buttoned-up shirt and skinny jeans look.

Depending on the look you are going for, your hair can be as long or as short on top as you wish. 

We can also add modern elements to your men’s hairstyle including a fade or disconnected hairstyle.  If you’ve seen a gent’s hairstyle you particularly like, make sure you show the image to your McGills stylist.



One of the top trends for men’s hair at the moment is the disconnected cut where the hair is short or shaved close to the skin at the sides and left longer on the top.

You hair can then be worn in a quiff, over to one side, slicked straight back or just left long and floppy.  

If you want the sides of your hair to be super short, you should ask for an undercut. With a fade, the hair will gradually fade from longer at the top down to shorter at the sides. 


If you’re looking for a new hair style that is well groomed during the day and can be ‘messed up’ for an evening out, you should ask your McGills stylist about adding layers to your style.

Wear it slicked back or neatly combed into place by day and, by adding product and messing it up a little, you’ll be ready for a night in the city!

Your McGills stylist will be happy to discuss the different styling options that can be achieved with your hair style, as well as the right styling products for your hair type.
