Some guys are not aware that getting a good haircut is very important. Unlike girls who could do lots of stuff to look good, us men only have three major areas that we could improve on: First is by making our bodies fit, second is by improving one’s face by minimizing acne and third is by getting a great haircut. Interestingly, a lot of us tend to neglect the latter which is by far the easiest thing to do.

So why is it important for guys to get a good haircut? Here are the top 4 reasons:

1. Haircut determines your personality

Your hair is as important as any part of your body. It gives you personality and character. Want to look like an emo? A rockstar? A model? Or perhaps a sportstar? Have your hair done and you’d surely look like the character you most want to be like.

2. Haircut shows your outlook in life

Believe it or not, your hairstyle projects your outlook in life. Too messy a hair and you will look like you’re stressed. Too neat a hair and you will look like an optimistic professional. Too stylish a hair and you’d look younger than your age.

3. Haircut shows your attractiveness

There are some haircuts which look good on others but don’t look good on you and vice versa. This is because the shape of your face will determine whether a certain hairstyle will look good on you or not. So choosing one recommended by the barber or stylist is essential.

4. Haircut can make you a headturner

Related to #3, if your haircut is generally impressive, you will become a headturner as you walk along. I don’t want to sound proud but just this weekend, when I got myself a nice haircut, I noticed a pretty girl at the mall who took a second look at me (and my hair). It was really flattering and it feels good.

As you can see, haircuts are often ignored by many of us (I included). But after having my hair done this weekend, I am happy to say that my perspective on styling my hair has really changed a lot.
