Men’s hair: The top 5 looks from the GQ Awards 2016

Calvin Harris’ modern classic

Want a ‘do that’s classy, yet contemporary? Calvin Harris’ lightly tousled short crop is the perfect example of how to work a classic short cut in an utterly modern way. Draw inspiration from the DJ and refresh your French crop or Caesar cut by working a little bit of the VO5 Extreme Style Matt Clay (£3.99*) into your mane. It’s great for creating texture and definition, while boasting a barely-there matte finish.

Tinie Tempah’s high top fade

When it comes to style, it seems British rapper Tinie Tempah can do no wrong. Men with curly and afro hair textures: we suggest you take inspiration from his high top fade and work in subtle details, like clean shaved lines for a quiet, yet dapper look. Just don’t forget to really work your natural hair texture.

To get Tinie Tempah’s look, use the Lynx Natural Look Flexible Control Cream (£4.29*). Just apply a fingertip’s worth of product into your hair, then rub it in with a hair sponge, et voila!: your ‘fro is good to go!

Mark Strong’s ‘no-hair’ hair

If you’re looking for a hassle-free ‘do, it doesn’t get any more low-maintenance than this ‘no-hair’ hairstyle, sported by actor Mark Strong. We just love that the poster boy for bald men everywhere continues to rock his clean-shaven head with pride at this year’s GQ Men Of The Year Awards.

Looking for more bald inspiration? Then don’t forget to check out our round-up of A-listers and Instagrammers who make this ‘no-hair’ look cool.

Dougie Poynter’s effortless waves

Meanwhile, Brit musician and model Dougie Poynter oozed super cool and casual surfer dude vibes with his lightly tousled waves last night. Got medium-length or long hair, and want to try your hand at recreating Dougie’s ‘do? Try spritzing your hair with the Toni&Guy Men’s Messy Salt Spray (£7.49*) to create red carpet-worthy, yet perfectly undone waves.

Sean Frank’s man hun

Love it or hate it, it seems the hair universe just can’t get enough of the man bun and the man hun (AKA the half-up man bun). And we have to say, we think Sean Frank’s mid-length locs look pretty dapper in this half-up, half-down hairstyle. So, you in yet? We thought so.
