June is for Gents

Abby Graves, Emily Steward, Kathy Slemp

OK, GENTLEMEN. You’ve waited patiently for your turn. Last month, we brought you our Ladies issue—it is ladies first, after all—and this month, we present our “Gents” issue, celebrating all things masculine. Of course, there’s Father’s Day on June 16 but there are so many more reasons why it’s great to be a guy this month. With the summer season underway, the long, sunny days can be filled with backyard cookouts, baseball games, camping trips, fishing excursions and so much more. To gather information for this issue, we looked to the experts: the men of Tulsa! You might even recognize a few faces. So, gents, crack open a cold one—perhaps at one of the many events or places Around Town because this month is all about you!

TREND SETTER

TRENDY CUTS

for men

THE STYLES YOU WANT + HOW TO GET THEM

The FADE There are many different types of fades, but ultimately a fade haircut is one that tapers in length the further down you go on the back and sides, meaning it isn’t trimmed to just one standard length all around. The level of fade (low, mid or high) depends on what point the shortest part of the hair begins to fade into a longer length. ASK FOR Taper fade, low fade, mid fade, high fade or skin fade

The man bun This popular style is good for many types of hair as long as you have a lot of it. You’ll need length in the front, back and sides generally long enough to at least brush your shoulders. KEEP IT CLEAN Be sure to keep your sideburns and neckline trimmed even as your hair grows out.

The quiff Closely related to the pompadour, the quiff haircut requires longer hair in the front and shorter hair in the back. The longer hair in the front is brushed upward and back from the forehead and away from the face. This look can be sleek and shiny for a classic look or texturized and matte for a modern take. ASK FOR Short sides and a long textured top. Be sure enough hair is left on top to brush back instead of standing straight up.

For styling tips and products great for these styles, visit Birchbox.com. 14

OPEN HOUSE ARTICLE ARTICLE & PHOTOGRAPHY BY ABBY GRAVES

REIMAGINING THE TRADITIONAL LY-OWNED FURNITURE AND INTERIOR DESIGN STORE, OPENED THE DOORS OF ITS NEW SHOWROOM AT 106TH AND MEMORIAL ON MARCH 1. The beautifully designed space includes an abundance of natural light, tall ceilings, and -- you guessed it -- gorgeous, high quality furniture and accessories that have been carefully and artistically arranged with a designer’s touch. While Luxe Furniture & Design has certainly honed its aesthetic over the years, the team of designers celebrate individual styles and are willing and eager to take on any design challenge a client might have. “One client challenge we often see is the desire to merge two individual styles to create a home that offers both feminine features and functional, masculine touches in a cohesive way,” Luxe owner Tamara Noel said. “To combat this, we offer a wide variety of furniture that is as comfortable and functional as it is beautiful.” As trends in furniture design have evolved, few pieces have seen as big of a transformation as the modern-day recliner. Rather than being oversized with a long, wooden lever handle for reclining, Luxe offers many recliner styles that are disguised so well you wouldn’t even know they recline. But make no mistake -- these recliners continue to offer the comfort and functionality for which traditional recliners have always been known. According to Luxe designer Rachael Jelley, “I love that modern-day recliners have clean lines and aren’t bulky or overstuffed like recliners of the past!” “One of my favorite recliners to show customers is the Bradington-Young Luxury Motion program. It is customizable in fabric or leather and has an articulating headrest. This is the perfect choice for those whose TV is above the fireplace or higher on the wall,” shared Luxe Designer Maureen Walters. During the month of June, Luxe Furniture & Design is offering $200 off all recliners plus free local delivery. As always, complimentary design services are included with any purchase. Stop in and see the new showroom and meet the friendly team at Luxe Furniture & Design. You won’t be disappointed! 24

Tom and Nina Butchko enjoy an outdoor event at the Harweldon Mansion.


THE PAST IS A BREATH EXHALED INTO THE FUTURE AS A GENTLE BREEZE. It carries with it a time of yesterday yearning to be part of today. It’s as though it begs to be reborn in a new era experiencing the subtle nuances between then and now. Tulsa has many of these ragged breaths which have blown among the years and one that has recently experienced a rebirth. The Harwelden Mansion has recently completed a makeover both inside and out. To walk its grounds on a spring evening is as though nothing has changed since its construction in 1923. As one strolls under the trees, next to the pristine pond and trickling water only yards away from the carriage house, the faint voices of original owners Earl and Mary Harwell can almost be heard in the swaying breeze. The grounds are now quite breathtaking with the English Tudor-Collegiate Gothic structure nestled peacefully in their midst. It was a collaboration of creative minds that was able to breathe fresh air into the grounds. Howell & Vancuren Landscape Architects, Szafranski Landscape Architecture, Tom’s Outdoor Living and  Jonesplan Construction worked together to bring a vision of past springs and nature’s splendor to life. “It was an interesting project because it was a collaborative effort between the four of us,” Arlin Vancuren of Howell & Vancuren Landscape Architects said. Owner Teresa Knox also had input as to the design and vision of the property. “We wanted to create the perfect English garden, complete with a manicured lawn and overgrown flowerbeds. We used the original 1920’s landscape plan as our design inspiration in order to CONTINUED >

pay tribute to the original owners, Earl and Mary Harwell. The transformation of the outdoor space is an extension of the magnificent architecture and beauty of the mansion,” Knox said. Carl Szafranski, Arlin Vancuren and Jeremy Steele with Tom’s Outdoor headed up the design team working with Knox. “Together, we were able to put together a very nice design," Tom’s Outdoor Living owner, Tom Butchko said. This project was a collaborative effort with Tom’s Outdoor and Jonesplan Construction on the install side. Jonesplan focused on the hardscaping such as rejuvenating the existing pond and stone pathways within the garden area. They also installed a new pump for the waterfall and added native stone to the lagoon floor for a natural appearance. In addition, they built a stone patio behind the carriage house and set slabs of regional stone throughout the garden as walkways, explained Jonesplan superintendent, Wade Jones. Tom’s Outdoor Living focused on the boulder walls which can be seen on the outside perimeter of the gardens in the back of the house. In addition, the company handled sodding the property, landscape install, drainage, and irrigation repair, however, it is the lighting that Butchko is most proud of within the scope of their work. “I am most excited about the outdoor lighting. Teresa Knox was gracious enough to trust us and our vision for illuminating the property. So, we got to highlight the amazing exterior of the house and were also able to illuminate the pathways, trees, the pond and the entryway which brings the property to life at night,” Butchko said. “We wanted to come up with a plan that retained the integrity of the mansion and it just needed a good facelift," Steele noted about the project. He explained that they did this using many of the older plants and designing new ways to implement an old style garden of peace and serenity. “I think it turned out beautifully,” he added. The Designer Showcase is a fund raiser for the Tulsa Public Schools. All design work was donated.
