ICONICALLY WORN BY: ELVIS & JAMES DEAN
The king of classic cool, Elvis’s hair was a huge part of his persona and his style is something that lives on today alongside his music. When opting for a pompadour as your stylist to go shorter on the sides and longer on top. This length will help you create that voluminous virtue we all love. Depending on hair type and desired look you’ll either want to air- or blow-dry with product. For a natural look similar to James Dean, run Light Hold Texture Lotion through damp hair and allow to air dry. For a more prominent pomp, spritz Alternator through damp strands and blow dry using a vent brush or fingers to create height. Once dry, apply Pomade and comb through to secure the style.
ICONICALLY WORN BY: BOB DYLAN, RIVER PHOENIX & KURT COBAIN
Long locks favor the fearless. Throughout the decades, long, bohemian-like hair has been more about not making a statement, than actually making one. Adverse from typical societal trends, men donning these styles were seen as “rule breakers” or the “bad boys,” forever winning over the hearts of women everywhere. As the ebb and flow of trends once again rise, long hair is in again, and is making a statement this time. Minimal products and styling are required to make this style a hit, but to keep your hair in check apply Light Hold Texture Lotion. It will fight off frizz and keep the hair minimally controlled with enough movement to still feel free.
CROPPED & COOL
ICONICALLY WORN BY: STEVE MCQUEEN & GEORGE CLOONEY
Although Clooney is no Steve McQueen, the two both had quintessentially cool cuts. Shorter than the average movie star, they didn’t need a great deal of hair to set them apart. Their facial structures and charisma carried them. With a crop, you can ask your stylist to create a fringe to frame your face or texture to wear it messy; to style, apply Fiber to dry hair and tousle for a messy-sexy look.
