2. Magazines

Magazines may be a low-tech way of showing the hairstylist how a guy wants his hair done, but in some cases a guy goes to the salon totally wondering about what to do with his hair until he finds the style he wants in one of the salon's magazines. Most salons carry magazines devoted solely for the season's latest hairstyles which clueless male customers can flip through for ideas. Some best magazines or books are GQ and Classic Hairstyles.

3. Barbershops and Hairstylists

The local salon, barbershop, and hairstylist is also a good source for hair styling and grooming advice. Most hairstylists who specialize in men's hair can recommend the right cut and products. Guys who want to go in, have a nice, flattering haircut in a few minutes can rely on the expertise of their hairstylists if they do not have any ideas on the kind of styles and cuts they want.

4. TV shows and Movies

Most guys simply get their fashion cues from the latest movies or their favorite TV shows. It is not surprising for a guy to sit down in a barber's chair and tell the barber to give him the same haircut as that of Ashton Kutcher or some other popular guy actor. Professional barbers and hairstylists will tell clients if the style they want will not suit them well, and will often work with the client to arrive at a style that is more flattering to him.
