As the warm days of summer have long disappeared on the horizon, we all feel the cold of autumn, as it slowly leads us into the frostiness of winter. It is not just our body that senses the change in temperature, but also our head. The weather change will also set the trends, the autumn will always favour haircuts that are longer, many of us gentlemen will say goodbye to the short fades and super short buzz cuts.

How to best cut Medium Length Wavy hairstyle?
Before you approach your favourite barbershop, let your hair grow up to 6-8 inches, so the barber will have a good length of hair to work with.
The barber will cut the top of your hair, using a clipper to reduce the length. Please note that your hair might be left a bit longer at this stage than the desired length as it will shorten when dry. Next, a professional barber will use scissors to cut your hair, point cutting and channel cutting techniques are very popular to create that textured look and stop the haircut looking flat.
After fully finishing with the top of the hair, the barber will move onto the sides, finishing off the look with the lines around your neck, ears, and sideburns. We recommend that you go for a natural finish, however an undercut is also a possibility at this stage.
How to style your hair?
The beauty of this style that it can be as high or low maintenance as you wish. You can style with a good pomade or wax to accentuate your curls. For a hairstyle that does not follow the beaten path, you can leave it messy or just slick it back without any styling product for a natural flow.
