Looking to the runway for inspiration is a great way to keep your hairstyle edgy and right on trend, but not all high fashion hairstyles for men are actually wearable in real life. To help you decide which ones are worth trying and which ones should be left to boldly coiffed fashion bloggers, we've selected five easy-to-wear looks that you can get away with on the daily.
Which one will you try?
1. Slick side part
This slick, side parted hairstyle is a classic and you don't have to be the Wolf of Wall Street to pull it off. You can wear it for formal occasions like weddings, or try a low-shine version of the look to dress up your off-duty weekend attire. Wherever you take this 'do, go easy on the gel - a dime-sized amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel will probably be enough, and you can always add more as needed.
2. Messy, brushed forward hair
This choppy, brushed forward hairstyle is a really lightweight way to wear your hair on your forehead. The pieciness breaks up the bangs and helps to frame the face without overwhelming it and can be achieved with a really small amount of matte product such as Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum. If you decide to try this look, collaborate with your stylist to figure out how to best sculpt it for your face shape.
3. Swept back curls
These swept back curls create a controlled look that isn't quite as harsh as a side part. We think it's the perfect hairstyle for the office, a formal event, a family dinner, a trip to the supermarket... you can really wear it anywhere!
4. Messy, airy curls
This lightweight, curly hairstyle is essentially bed head hair you can wear outside in the real world. If you tend to take a laissez-faire approach to styling, this should be right up your street! Just make sure you exert some semblance of control by running a really small amount of gel through the ends before shaping with your hands.
5. Messy shag
This messy shag hairstyle is reminiscent of the textured, vintage looks made famous by the Beatles in the sixties. It's really easy to wear and the maintenance is fairly low-key - you just need to get a trim when your line vision becomes obstructed!
