Featured Style: Enhanced Curls with a Low Taper
If you’re rocking a bird’s nest up top and in dire need of professional intervention to tame the curls then call off the search, this style is for you. Fresh picked from the chair of UCDC member Tiphaine Aupy, owner of Tiphane le Barbier we’re stoked to feature these Enhanced Curls with a Low Taper.
This cut keeps a tidy amount of length on top and pairs a low taper with tight edgework to enhance the curls. “Tapering the temple line and neckline only leaving weight above the ear, showcases the curls. Tiphaine shows us the power of clean low edges that frame the hair like a piece of art and draw your eye to the curls on top”, said Uppercut Deluxe Founder Steve Purcell.
Curls can be tough to work with and keep styled whether they’re loose, tight, or somewhere in between. Spending hours combing, pulling, ironing, and wrangling curls can be tiresome so your barber is your best friend when looking to tame and enhance a curly mop. To achieve this style ask for a low taper along the neck line and temple while maintaining length on top. Arrive prepped with a photo to avoid disappointment, remember you can always cut more off, but it won’t stitch back on…
How To Style: Men’s Curly Hair
Styling and Enhancing curls is only a few steps away with the help of Uppercut Deluxe Foam Tonic.
Kick off your routine with slightly damp hair, then take two or three pumps of Foam Tonic and spread the product through the hair ensuring you work all the way in to the roots.
Next, take a hairdryer with a diffuser attachment (this will evenly direct the heat without breaking the curl) and work around the hair on a medium heat. This will set the Foam Tonic into the hair and ‘lock in’ the curl.
If you’re chasing a little extra hold or definition, take another two or three pumps of Foam Tonic and work through the hair allowing to dry naturally.
