The gold standard of men's haircuts right now is based on the 'short back and sides with more length on top' template, mostly because it's a versatile cut which offers up a whole bunch of different styling options. These options can generally be reduced to two main camps, unkempt and groomed, both of which can be dressed up or down for something like a job interview or a party.

The big question is: which hairstyle is better for work? Vote for your favorite above.

Controlled chaos

Messy, unkempt hair (with or without a beard) can be a great option for a day at the office, as long as you follow a few essential style rules. Mussed styles are totally acceptable in the work place, when they appear textured yet controlled. Leave the scarecrow-chic for the weekend, if that's your thing! For moderately unkempt look that will only enhance the sharpness of your chosen workday attire, you need a little product to fix and maintain your style.

How to style: Apply a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum, running it back through the top section of hair and working downwards. Apply more as you go, if you need it. Use you fingers to muss and tousle the longer part of your style on top, and smooth over the back and sides with the palms of your hands.

Smooth operator

If you prefer a more polished look, a slick groomed style might be a better option. Whereas a messier style will add contrast and balance to a formal ensemble, a more put-together look coordinated with it, tying the whole look together.

How to style: After defining a side part, apply a little Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty through your hair. It will give your hair a matte finish and keep it in place all day long. Add more product as needed and then use a comb to smooth over your whole style.
