See the best styles from the hotly anticipated Dunkirk premiere

Make way, make way, hot male hairstyles coming through!   

The hotly anticipated premiere of the new movie Dunkirk, was held last night in London’s Leicester Square. And with a strong male cast, there was a host of recognisable faces and plenty of great hairstyles to boot.

Dunkirk, the World War II-inspired movie from Warner Bros. and director Christopher Nolan, is set to be a hit in the box office and we personally can’t wait until it lands in UK cinema’s next weekend.

Now, if you’re yet to see all the stand out styles from last night’s star-studded premiere, simply keep scrolling and be inspired.

Harry Style’s relaxed quiff

In his first movie role, Harry Styles certainly brought out the glamour for the world premiere last night. The singer-cum-actor wore his tousled brown hair in a retro-inspired quiff style, keeping the sides of his hair clipped around his ear, leaving all the attention on his swept-back relaxed quiff.

Tom Hardy’s high and tight cut

Looking dapper at the Dunkirk premiere was Tom Hardy, who stars in the movie as a Royal Air Force pilot. With all the movie roles we’ve seen Tom in, we’ve never before seen him work a hairstyle like this.

Keeping the sides and back of his hair ultra short, Tom has left the top of his hair long and in a swept-back style. This high and tight hairstyle wouldn’t be out of place on his Peaky Blinders co-star Arthur Shelby – has someone been taking styling tips we wonder?

Cillian Murphy’s high skin fade

Speaking of Peaky Blinders, Cillian Murphy (also starring in Dunkirk – we warned you it was a star studded cast!) attended the premiere wearing his hair in a high skin fade style.

With the close cut sides and swept forward top, this 1930s-inspired look is the signature style seen on Cillian’s Peaky Blinders character Tommy Shelby.

Dougie’s surfer waves

Attending the Dunkirk premiere was Dougie Poynter, famed as much for his long tresses as he is for his time in boyband McFly. Wearing his dirty-blonde, shoulder-length hair in a cool surfer wave style, Dougie gave a whole new meaning to nonchalance.

Editor’s tip: To get Dougie’s surfer waves, utilise a good sea salt spray, like Toni & Guy Men’s Messy Sea Salt Sprayto boost your natural texture and add movement, for the perfect lived-in look.
