The Perfect Summer Haircut

Do The Ronson

If you've got a mane long enough, try something like this, inspired by music-maestro Mark Ronson. It's surprisingly versatile and summer-appropriate. Martial Vivot, one of the geniuses behind Ronson's do, explains.

• If this is a big change for you, consider going in right before that week-long summer vacation. You'll have some off-duty time to get used to the cut and play around with it.

• If your stylist picks up a razor, slap it out of their hands. You want a scissor-and-comb fade.

• And that fade should go from the temples to the occipital bone (that big bone on the back of your skull). In other words, it should gradually get longer as it reaches the back of your head.

• On top, you want to keep some length. If you have enough to work with, aim for somewhere along the top of your sideburns.

• Make sure you don't get a uniform, bowl-like cut. Ask for lots and lots of texture. This way, your hair will be lighter-weight and easier to style. It will grow out better, too.

• The beauty of the cut is that it can be styled all sorts of way. For work, try slicking it back with some Phyto glossing cream, which will give you a little shine without freezing it into place. On the weekends, try blow-drying your hair to give it some natural shine. Don't worry about a few stray curls here and there. Roll with 'em. Or, keep things simple and part it on the side with a lightweight paste.
