I love my “guys”

Posted in News on January 22nd, 2012 by Reagan

One of my favorite ways to wear my hair, is pulled up (full up fat twist below, but it can also be a bun or any other up hair) with my guys down. My guys are all the little wisps around my face. It gives it such a romantic, natural look. And who doesn’t love a little romance?

These guys are supposed to look accidental, but they are very intentional. They were undercut to be at just the right parts of my jaw and neck. I prefer some at the hollow of my jaw, the corner of my mouth and just past my chin. My stylist friends and I have a million names for them. I have always called them “guys”, but others call them “fall downs”, “friends”, “wisps” and my favorite- “man catchers”. The “man catcher” is for the guys that fall right around your mouth, all sultry like.

These are pretty easy to do on yourself, and I think I’ll do a little tutorial pretty soon! I don’t usually recommend cutting your own hair, but these are easily covered/blended if they don’t turn out exactly how you like.

Do you like to have some guys around your face when your hair is up? Or are you more of a sleek lady?

    i love the look of “guys” on others but i’m a sleek lady. mostly because i don’t have wispy guys just random hairs around my face that curl and don’t grow!

  3. Christina @ Hair Romance Says:

    I’m going to start calling them my ‘guys’ too – I love a loose updo

    I love your new blog header!!! and your “friends” I think I may start using that term with my clients. I love how it looks but I can’t stand when I have little pieces that fall out…

  5. Tiffany Says:

    *meant guys, but either way still so fun!!

    the shorter my guys are, they cowlickier my forehead is. so i like guys and i’ve had guys multiple times, but right now no guys. maybe i should swing that way again…

  7. Jodi Says:

    I need to have them for when I wear updos because I’m not crazy about my jaw from the side and the “guys” make my face look softer :)

    It’s usually hard for me to get these cut just right when I go to the hairdresser, but the last time I went I finally got some great ones.

    Oh I love my guys too! I don’t like my hair to look too polished. If it doesn’t have a few bumps and loose pieces, it’s not me.

  9. Marcie Says:

    I’m a lover of both sleek and “guys”. Unfortunately I’m incredibly boring when it comes to doing my own hair. It’s either down and straight or up in a boring gym-going pony tail. Boring boring boring….but I still love reading your blog and dreaming that I could someday have awesome hair do’s like you. {sigh}

    And I LOVE the way your banner or whatever you want to call it turned out. All of the pictures are beautiful. Jake did an awesome job!! I like how it’s different pics every time you log on…yes, I’ve already been on here a couple times this morning. What can I say….I’m obsessed (in a good way, not a creepy way). Hope you have a good Monday! :)

    Please, please, please do a tutorial soon!!! I love “guys”, but I’m never quite sure how to ask my stylist for them. I love this blog!

  12. Stephanie Says:

    I am more of a sleek girl myself but they look great on you! I have tried to do messy but it doesn’t really work for me, so I’m just trying to go with a smoother look and put my own spin on it!!

  13. Emily Says:

    Depends on the outfit wether or not i will create a sleek up do or a more effortless look (hair around the face). Either way with the right hair color these looks can define facial features and look very sexy.

  27. Sisse Says:

    Oooooh! Guys! I want them, asap. I am sort of a newbie when it comes to hair-stuff, or at least that’s how Ive always felt.. Maybe the year of 2013 will bring me cool hair-doing abilities? Well, I am sure a tutorial on guys (!) will help me a lot!

  28. Jessica Says:

    In the Hispanic culture (I know for sure in the Dominican Republic) we call them “busca novios” (“boyfriend seekers” in English) which is basically the same as your “man catchers” how funny :)
