Mens barber haircut

Gents: want to try something new this year? The good news is there isn’t a ‘one style fits all’ approach to hair this year; there are loads of new trends in cut and colour to choose from. And of course, here at Yazz Hair Leeds, our stylists can help you achieve them! From the traditional ‘short, back and sides’ to something that little bit different, we have the know-how to transform your look. We’ll always advise you on the best cut and colour for you, too. True, you might want to keep current trends in mind, but what works or one person’s face shape might not work for another. That said, let’s take have a look at some of the haircuts doing the rounds so far in 2017… The Short Back and Sides – We’ve mentioned it already and it’s with good reason: the short back and sides is here to say.

Our Ashley Does the Yazz Team Proud at TIGI Inspirational Youth UK 2016!

It’s been an exciting time for our stylist, Ashley Wallis, who’s recently returned from the prestigious TIGI Inspirational Youth UK event. And of course, our talented hairdresser didn’t let us down, appearing live on stage and confidently displaying the hair style he’d created following a gruelling 5-day bootcamp. The event, at London’s Cafe de Paris Club, showcased the creative experiences gained during a TIGI bootcamp, with doors opening at 7pm and the show closing at 12am. Marking the 14th anniversary of TIGI Inspirational Youth, this year was just as successful as previous shows. Created by Anthony Moscolo to give ‘the next generation of hairdressing stars’ a great opportunity to hone their skills, the event recognises young talent and the course itself is viewed as one of the best in the industry. Taking part in a five-day bootcamp, Ashley then appeared at the live show and got the chance to experience a fun photo shoot with his hair model, and TIGI photographer, Alex Barron-Hough. Speaking after the event and photoshoot, our Ashley said: “Inspirational Youth has opened my eyes to hair, fashion and beauty trends, and a different world of hairdressing. It’s helped me look at how we work with hair.” … Continue reading
