Jordan Blackmore, the 29-year-old owner of Three Square Studios in New York City, has a client list that includes Marc Jacobs and Brian Atwood, and when it comes to talking hair, he cuts right to the chase.
We asked Blackmore to fill us in on the tools, tips, and tricks of the trade, like faking a fuller head of hair and how good hair can take you from a 7 to a 10.
If I could kill off one hairstyle, it would be . . .the Miley Cyrus haircut.
The best hair in Hollywood belongs to . . . Brad Pitt. Homeboy has rocked short, medium, and long haircuts like nobody's business. (Let's pretend that Chanel No. 5 ad never happened.)
The hair tool every guy should have is a . . . Mason Pearson brush and a Peanut trimmer.
The product no guy should live without is . . .Murray's original pomade.
The best look I ever created was . . . Marc Jacobs' blue hair.
The beard I'm into right now is . . . short to nonexistent. A clean-shaven face looks best with the classic hairstyles I'm feeling right now.
In 2013, men are going to be . . . wearing looser pants and parting their hair more.
Guys, you have to stop . . . acting like you don't care about your hair! Good hair can take you from a 7 to a 10. Bad hair can take you from a 7 to a 5. Nobody wants a nickel when they can have a dime!
To fake a fuller head of hair . . . use a blow dryer.
The haircut that looks good on everybody is . . . Steve McQueen's.
I've been dying to get my hands on . . . Colin Farrell's hair, because he's the man.
