Long haircuts with middle parts were a grooming staple for any nineties boy band member worth his salt, sparking a trend that a whole generation will never forget. Thanks to bands like N*Sync and the Backstreet Boys, everyone had this hairstyle or knew someone who did, and now it might be on its way back. Yeah, really.
The big question is, can curtains ever be cool again?
There are some notable individuals who managed to pull of the curtained look with a reasonable amount of success - people such as David Beckham, Kurt Cobain, Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp all killed it.
These guys taught us that, with the right texture and and a sprinkling of 'devil may care' attitude, curtains can, in fact, look good.
How to make it work
The most important thing to remember about this look is that it's way more versatile than you might think. The extra length means that if a center part isn't living up to expectations, you can just sweep it all back off your face for a Jared Leto at the Golden Globes kind of vibe.
If your hair is naturally quite straight, apply a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty to tousle and shape the hair. Roll individual sections between your fingertips then break them up to get a grungy, piecey finish. You can scrunch and muss the finished style with your hands to add more texture as needed.
For wavy or curly hair, keep the cut a little longer and use the putty to define individual curls and waves.
What do you think? Will curtains be making a comeback on your head?
