Beards and stubble have moved on from being a hipster
trend and are now mainstream with style monitors
predicting it has reached its popularity peak. Nevertheless
it is a trend still forecast to influence men’s grooming
and barbers are in hot demand – Urbbana is the latest to
add one to its new flagship store in Edward Street in the
city. Beard oils, waxes and moisturisers are expected to
continue to sell well as a more carefully sculpted look takes
even stronger hold.

through the top graduating to clean fades and sharp edges
at back and sides, according to Chris Blair, co-owner of
Anton & Blair salons and A&B Barber at Skygate. Men
are heading towards more colour services too, says Blair,
blending greys or going for a beach lightened look for
summer, he says.
