Many of you reading this probably know that Tom Hanks’ character in Castaway cuts off his long hair to create the illusion of growing out his hair. Well, it turns out that the man himself, actor Robert Pattinson, has taken the same approach – and it looks incredible. Here’s how you can get the same haircut as the heartthrob.
Step 1: Take Your Time
Before you start cutting your hair, take your time and think about what you’re going to say. You’re probably aware that men are often much more inclined to bicker and go through life’s many changes emotionally, which can manifest itself in the hair. That’s why it’s important to feel confident that you’re doing the right thing for you and your personality. So, instead of rushing into a rash decision, take a few days to reflect on what you feel is best for you. Don’t worry – nobody’s going to judge you.
Step 2: Use Your Scalp As A Guide
The next step is crucial if you want to achieve a truly unique haircut, and that’s using your scalp as a guide. Your hair is the one part of your body that you can’t easily hide, so it’s important to feel comfortable with what you’re doing. The worst thing you can do is cut off your hair and then regret it. The key is to find the right hairstyle for you, which is going to be based on your personal preferences and what you feel best represents your personality. There are three basic rules you must follow:
- Take your time
- Use your scalp as a guide
- Don’t rush
With these three steps, you’re sure to end up with a unique haircut that will make everyone notice you. And, as a bonus, you’ll feel confident and happy that you made the right decision for yourself. So, what are you waiting for? Begin by taking off your shoes and socks, then lay down on the floor in front of a large mirror. You’re going to take a good look at yourself and figure out what you want to change. Remember – you’re taking your time, so be patient.
Step 3: Start From Scratch
Now that you’ve made the decision to change your haircut, it’s time to start from scratch. You don’t need to follow any specific brand of haircutting technique, but you should do what feels natural to you. The main thing is that you feel comfortable with what you’re doing and that it reflects your personal style. The key is to find the right barber for the job, and make sure they’ve got experience with this type of haircut. If you’re searching on the internet, look for reviews to find out what others say about the service and whether or not it’s good for thick or thin hair. Once you find a good barber, take some time to learn the proper technique for chopping off your hair. You don’t need to be perfect, but you should strive for a clean cut with no hair damage.
Step 4: Find The Right Grooming Products
You’ll also need to consider what products you’re going to use to groom yourself before and after you cut off your hair. After you’ve cut your hair, you’re going to need to use a bit of product to keep it looking neat and clean. Even if you don’t have hair damage, a little product goes a long way – it just makes everything look that little bit better. When choosing your products, bear in mind that what you’re looking for is texture—not necessarily volume. For example, you don’t need to go for a full-body hair shower if you just want to make your hair shinier. It’s all about knowing what works best for you. You should also look for products that work well with your hair type. For instance, if you have thick hair, you don’t need to go for a thinner product since they usually contain the same ingredients.
Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair is also important. The last thing you want is to pick a conditioner that ends up ruining your hair. The main thing you need is an effective conditioner that doesn’t weigh your hair down. Always look for a product that’s going to make your hair shiny and luscious—not thick and dull.
And, of course, you want to avoid using heat-generated damage as a result of too many blow-dries or hair extensions—this is usually caused by a lack of proper hydration. If you’ve had a stressful day at work, your scalp may be quite dry, which can cause major damage. Always use a hydrating mask or cream before you start styling your hair, whether you’ve used a shampoo or not. This will help make your hair easier to manage and much less likely to break off.
Step 5: Don’t Forget The Garnish
If you’re taking off your shoes and socks, then it’s time to add the finishing touches. Grab a small plate, and on it, put the following items in order:
- Sliced cucumber
- Fresh mint
Now, take a look at your plate and add a garnish to it. You want to add something that’s going to make it look like you’ve taken the time to create a unique culinary masterpiece. Maybe add a drop of vinegar or lemon juice on top of the cucumber to make it pop. You could also place a few ice cubes on the plate to make it cold and refreshing – just make sure you don’t add any other liquid to it. You want to keep it as it is on the plate, as close to how you see it in your head now.
Create A Masterpiece
Once you’ve added all the garnish, it’s time to sit back and take a good, long look at your work. You’re probably going to enjoy the compliments from your friends and family, as well as the compliments of strangers – especially the latter. You’ll be able to feel the volume of your hair, determine where you need to go with the razor, and find the right hairstyle for you. This is what all your hard work has come down to – putting your personal style and feelings first and foremost.
