Top of the crops: 5 key looks from the 2017 GQ Awards
Tinie Tempah’s textured high top fade
We, for one, are glad that the afro high top fade is still going strong as a popular hairstyle among men. Which is why when we saw British rapper Tinie Tempah step onto the red carpet with the look, we just had to give him an award.
Notice how he’s got a lot of length at the top? And how he’s also brought this classic ‘do to modern heights by pairing it with a sharp fade? That’s what we call a killer combo!
Editor’s tip: The mastermind product behind this textured look? The Lynx Natural Look Flexible Control Cream, of course! Just evenly apply a fingertip amount of product into your afro and you’ll be good to go.

James Norton’s formal bedhead style
If the looks above have taught us anything, it’s that textured styles are dominating the mane scene. However, if you’re unsure whether the trend will work for your straight, fine strands, just look to James Norton for guidance.
Seeing as he’s already won the Breakthrough Actor of the Year Award, we’re giving him another accolade for this dressed-up bedhead style.
Editor’s tip: To get this effortless texture, simply work some of the TONI&GUY Men’s Texturising Fibre into your mane and pull into different directions to get that perfectly-undone vibe. Easy-peasy, eh?
Jared Leto’s slick man bun
To really make a statement, pair the look with cool suit and get ready to take on the day-to-night hum, in style.
David Haye’s sharp cornrows
British boxer David Haye is often spotted sporting his long afro hair in this sharp cornrow hairstyle. We reckon that this isn’t only because he knows that man braids are super stylish, but also because his strands are more manageable when styled this way.
While you might believe this cool and practical style is reserved only for the ring, David is proving it works just as well on the red carpet, too. Nice job, David!
