The Quiff – James Dean, Rebel without a Cause (1955)

If you're thinking of wearing your hair in a quiff, look no further than James Dean's Rebel Without a Cause hairstyle. Leaning a tad towards extreme, this hairstyle has loads of attitude.

To make this iconic bad boy hairstyle, apply a tiny amount of hair fix putty on your damp tresses and blow-dry them, brushing backwards as you go to create a voluminous texture. As a finishing touch, take some more putty on your fingertips and smooth down your sideburns and back hair.

Complete the rebel look by sporting a red blouson jacket, white T-shirt and classic fit jeans.

There's a distinguished masculinity about Special Agent James Bond's hairstyle. Replicate Sean Connery's classy side sweep in 007 movies such as Goldfinger and Diamonds are Forever by dabbing some clean styling gel over your hair and combing it neatly in place. Put on your tuxedo and you have the 'license to kill' ... with your looks, of course!

John Travolta's Rockabilly 'Grease' Hairstyle

Rockabilly – John Travolta, Grease (1978)

If any men's hairstyle celebrates 1950s fashion in its true spirit, it's John Travolta's rockabilly in Grease. Also known as the 'elephant's trunk', this hairstyle requires you to work in some clean style gel through your medium-length damp hair and brush it upwards and back using a fine-toothed comb.

Don't press your hair too much while combing; you need to keep it slightly puffy. When done, use the tail of you comb to pull out one stray piece of hair on to your forehead. Finish off by spritzing your hair with some bold control hairspray to set the style for longer wear.
