Editor’s tip: When it comes to easy hairstyles for guys, sea salt spray is key to creating waves and movement in your hair. So, spritz some of the Toni&Guy Men: Messy Salt Spray into your mane and just watch as it comes to life.
3. Sleek comb-over
Disclaimer: not all comb-over hairstyles look as bad as you think. Need proof? Just look at how this gent rocks it and then you’ll understand what we mean — cool, right?
4. Bedhead hair
Undone, textured hair is the top choice for many men. But how can you make the most out of your bedhead texture, without looking like you’ve just rolled out of bed? With the help of a texturising fibre, of course.

Editor’s tip: To pull off this slick look, apply a 10 pence-sized amount of the VO5 Wet Look Styling Gel to the palms of your hands and evenly distribute the product over your strands. Use a fine-toothed comb for extra smoothness and you’ve got a refined look, perfect for any parties you might attend.
