"Without the right haircut, you're going to struggle with styling on a day-to-day basis. Get the cut right and easy hair styling in between haircuts will naturally follow. There are a few ways to find a great barber, the best being a personal recommendation. If you know someone with a good cut, ask where he gets it done. Building a good relationship with your barber is also key. He or she can, and should, advise you on head shape, suitable styles, and the right length. As soon as you're happy with the finished result, get advice on the right product for you. Be sure to book your appointments in advance. If you don't book in advance you run the risk of not being fit in and you'll have to go elsewhere, which could end up ruining all that hard work with a sub-standard cut."
