Homegrown, in-demand and a much-loved member of the Royston Blythe family, Joe joined us as a school leaver and was given the opportunity to work as Nick’s assistant during an intense 3 year training programme.
With a noticeable natural talent and an infectious passion for hairdressing, after qualifying Joe developed his reputation and now has a loyal following of clients. He’s expertly trained in Hair Extensions, is a talented men’s stylist, a total an inspiration with long hair and this week he’s our #StylistintheSpotlight
When Joe was announced as coming 3rd place in the prestigious and most respected British Men’s Hairdressing Competition ‘The American Crew All Stars’ it just confirmed what a fabulous men’s hairdressing skills and eye for men’s style Joe has developed. So we think it’s about time we talk all things men’s hair and steal some top men’s styling tips from Joe!
What are your signature Men’s hairstyles?
Softer more natural hair styles with a modern twist are a favourite of mine! Currently trends are really embracing those natural curls and waves and this works well with my style as I love to go for a more laid back approach to Men’s hair! I take influence from those iconic traditional looks but add my own modern flex of barbering.
Q/. The look you love right now?
Tight fades with a mixture of a strong and natural texture and is a really cool, polished yet softer look.
Q/. The best products for guys to use to create your looks?
Styling products for men are sometimes overlooked, however nowadays men really do have just as much of a selection as the ladies, which I think is great! Depending on the style I find salt/textures spray have become very popular! Your trusty waxes and clays are still a top favourite too! Texture dusts have also become a top contender for men’s styling – they allow you to enjoy texture and structure without committing to a wax or a clay.
