Nathan Byron’s power afro

It’s no secret that women are rocking their natural hair proudly out, so now’s the perfect time for all you fine black gentleman to follow suit.

Whether you rock the ’70s power afro (like Nathan Byron) or go for something shorter is all up to you. But just remember: keeping your mane nourished is key for keeping your curls looking fresh.

Editor’s tip: Want more volume and less frizz? Try using the VO5 Fluff Tamer while gently pulling your curls out, to soften them and create your own power ‘fro.

Nick Knowles’ slick side-part

For anyone who missed the event last night, let us fill you in. DIY SOS: The Big Build won the best lifestyle show award and its leading star, Nick Knowles, definitely brought his A-game with this dapper hairstyle.

Nick’s Don Draper-inspired slick side-part proves that this classic hairstyle is still popular — and for all the right reasons. It’s low maintenance, works a treat for those with fine or thick locks and is ideal for formal events.

Editor’s tip: To perfectly style your side-part haircut, we recommend using a wax, like the Lynx Signature Clean Cut Look Definition Wax to get that neatly groomed look.

Rob Mallard’s casual quiff

If we learnt anything from the men’s catwalks this season, it’s that perfectly styled quiffs are out and relaxed quiffs are in.

This style is all about having casually refined locks, pushing your locks up and to the side, like Coronation Street‘s star Rob Mallard did for the event. So if you want to master the look for yourself, here’s how to get a relaxed quiff in a jiffy.

This cool hairstyle is perfect for those who want all the benefits of classic well-groomed look, with just enough edge to also make it look modern. Nice job, Dominic!

Editor’s tip: To build height and volume, work some VO5 Extreme Style Thicken Up Lifting Paste into your mane while styling.

There’s been a renewed obsession for fades lately, so when we saw EastEnders star Richard Blackwood with this minimalist fade cut, we knew the look was back for good.

As you can tell, his closely cropped afro features a low fade, which adds a subtle and stylish edge to his overall look. That’s what we call a flattering cut!
