When it comes to style icons for men, you can bet your bottom dollar that they’ve had a buzzcut at least once – Brad Pitt, Tom Hardy, Zayn Malik and of course David Beckham have all gone for the shaving style. Taking the style to the runway, models teamed their buzzcuts with platinum almost snow white colours for a head-turning effect.


2. Power ‘fros

’70s styles are huge this year and it’s transcending far beyond our wardrobes. Yes, ’70s hair is one of the most popular men’s hairstyles in 20202 but what should you be looking for? Nothing quite says ’70s disco than big afro hair.

The fade is a staple haircut for many guys, but have you added a design to it? It’s a great way to freshen up your look and give it your own personal touch/

Editor’s tip: To add some contrasting volume, we suggest adding a firm volume-boosting hairspray to your hair arsenal. Our top pick is the TONI&GUY Body Amplify Creation Hairspray.


4. Rom-com hair

There has been a new wave of rom-com hair spotted this year with actor Timothée Chalamet leading the charge. The medium-length style is full of movement and falls naturally on the face – you may need to use a blast of the hairdryer for an added volume boost if you have thin hair.


5. Surfer’s hair

As far as men’s hairstyle trends go, surfer’s hair is one that’s popular all over the world – even if you live nowhere near a beach. The key to replicating the look is undone texture and as you may have guessed, it works best on those with shoulder length hair or longer.

Editor’s tip: Avoid stepping into the grunge hair arena by using a dry shampoo in between washes. We like the TRESemmé Instant Refresh Translucent Dry Shampoo for removing unpleasant odours and extending our style.


6. Bowl cut

Now before you dismiss the bowl cut here us out. While they might bring back some disturbing childhood memories, you’ll be pleased to know that the modern version is far more wearable thanks to the taper fade finish.


7. Natural with a Beard
