The first thing Nicolaich said to me before I started cutting his hair was that he wants to grow it longer. He already had this 1990s type of haircut (curtained hair), so the challenge for me this time was to somehow update it and make it something new, plus keep as much length as possible. I got rid of the fade at the back, opting for a curved line that morphed into a v-line at the sides. I also took a lot of weight off the back because I didn’t want the cut to look feminine. I finished by spraying a tiny bit of a sea-water type of product, just to give the hair some texture. Nicolaich is moving to London today, so I wish him all the luck a boy could need when making that big a change.
