These days, there are few, if any, standard rules that apply when a man is getting himself together in the morning. Investment bankers are rocking beards. Hipsters are keeping it clean and wearing suits. Man makeup is really a thing—seriously—and it’s growing in popularity. All this is to say that the status quo for manly style isn’t what it used to be—and we’re better off because of it.
With all these new options on the spectrum of masculinity, we have decided to help narrow down some of easiest and best ways to knock out one of the most daunting—your hair. To help you choose the best cut for your hair type and preference, we looked to Amy K., a cool gal we love, who happens to be AXE Hair Celebrity Spokestylist. When the heroes of Hollywood—like Eddie Redmayne and Ryan Reynolds—need to look their best for high-profile events, they turn to her. (You’d be surprised how much most guys love getting their hair done). So yeah, she knows a thing or two about finding a style that works, and making it work fast.
On or off the red carpet, these 10 stylish hairstyles will keep you looking your masculine best. If you like these—or ANY hairstyles you see—take the photo to your barber or stylist. It’s actually a major help to them, simply because it gives them a reference point to understand what you’re talking about when you’re describing how you want your hair to look. That said, understand that your hair may be a different texture or thickness from your ideal cut. Don’t sweat it—just be willing to go with the flow and rock your own modified version.
