How to achieve the top male celebrity hairstyles

Are you bored of your current look? Do you struggle to change up your hairstyle? If so, you’re not alone. Research by the hair transplant experts at Crown Clinic found that men switch up their hairstyle only once every 5 and a half years, whereas women opt for a new style every 18 months.

The results of the survey also revealed the male celebrity whose hair men most admired – David Beckham. With the boom of the male grooming industry, more men are exploring different tools and techniques to achieve male celebrity hairstyles.

Whilst many famous faces have a team of stylists on hand to achieve their desired look, there are some tips and tricks you can utilise to get the celebrity look at home.

Read on to discover how to achieve the top male celebrity hairstyles.

David Beckham – The Disconnected Undercut

The disconnected undercut is a classic style that looks good on anybody. Although it has a rather complicated name, the style is easy to achieve and maintain, offering a good starting point for anyone looking to switch up their hairdo.

Method: Your barber should know what a disconnected undercut should entail, however, it’s always best to take a photo along to your appointment to ensure you’re getting your desired style.

Once you’ve got your new ‘do’, you can style the disconnected undercut a variety of ways. For the sleek, swept-back look, opt for a styling paste such as The Bluebeards Revenge Matt Paste. This will keep your hair at bay, whilst adding a natural shine to give you that polished look.

If you’re looking for an easy, low-maintenance style, look no further than the soft quiff. This is more suitable for anyone opting for a shorter hairstyle and similarly to the disconnected undercut, it’s a good look on anyone.

Method: To get the Ryan Gosling look, it’s best to ask for a cross between a ‘gentleman’s cut’ and an ‘ivy league’. This will provide a clear image to your barber of what you’d like to achieve. Alternatively, ask for a 3 or 4 on the sides and 1.5 to 2 inches long on the top.

For styling, all you’ll need is a bit of pomade and a half wide toothed and fine toothed comb. Opt for a matte product to achieve the no-effort, casual style that Ryan Gosling pulls off so well.

Zayn Malik – Stylish Curtains

Gone are the days of the slicked down curtain haircut of the 90’s. The hairstyle is back and has been transformed into a more wearable fashion.

The long, dishevelled locks have been popularised by celebrities such as Zayn Malik, Chris Hemsworth and Johnny Depp, bringing long hair back into the mainstream.

Method: If your hair is currently short, ideally you’ll want to wait until your hair is medium to long in length before you attempt this style. When your hair is long enough, your barber can cut the back and sides to an appropriate length.

As you’re dealing with longer hair, it will take a little bit longer to achieve the stylish celebrity look, however the end result will be worth the wait.

If you find your hair building up oil quickly, choose an oil-reducing shampoo to reduce shine and avoid the greasy curtain look.

As for styling, you’ll want to opt for lightweight products such as The Bluebeards Revenge Sea Salt Spary and use combs and brushes rather than your hands. This can add texture and volume all whilst helping to achieve that effortless surfer style.
