Men's Celebrity Hair Icons 2010 – Get the Look

by sophieh / August 6, 2010

Love them or hate them, celebrities do influence the hairstyle choices of the nation, and it won’t be long before clients come in clutching crumpled pictures of the latest It boy and asking for ‘the look’.

HJ Men looks at some of the latest celebs to stir male follicles, and the techniques and products that can create their hairstyles.


Mark Ronson

His music combines classic with cool and he has a personal style to match.

“I love this quirky quiff. Create the look by cutting the sides short but leaving some length through the back and side sections to style. Keep the top left segment longer and slightly disconnected to form the masculine quiff silhouette.”

Paul Falltrick, Paul Falltrick Hairdressing, Romford, Essex

Alex-Turner.jpgAlex Turner

The Arctic Monkeys front man is the pin-up boy for men who like their hair long. Alex is the pioneer of next-generation grunge – and he’s made it much more stylish than first time around.

“This effortless hairstyle actually has a whole lot of thought behind it. Many young guys don’t want short hair. They are saying grunge is back, but it never went away. Grunge is one of those reoccurring vibes; it’s just a bit sexier this time around. To recreate, apply a matte-finish dust and dry shampoo.”

Bryn Wilkins, Easton Regal Hairdressing, Clerkenwell, London

Justin-Bieber.jpgJustin Bieber

Tween girls love him and the boys are catching onto the fact that they can get some of the Bieber appeal by emulating his look.

“Justin has a really cool, young look which perfectly suits his image and style. To recreate this, I would work with a square layering technique, beginning with the profile section on top and over-directing this towards the fringe to keep the length through the top. Using this as a guide, work vertically on the sides and back again, creating a square shape to maintain softness in the hairline.”

Jake Unger, HOB Salons, London

David-Gandy.jpgDavid Gandy

el David is style personified with his casual/smart dress sense mirrored by his tailor-made messy hair

“I love this cut. It’s a bang on-trend short back and sides with a bit of messy texture on top. To get the cut, use scissor-over-comb through the back and sides and keep it tapered to the neck, working up to the recession and the occipital bone, bringing in square layers to maintain a bit of width and height on top.”

Jamie Stevens, Errol Douglas, London

Robert-Pattinson.jpgRobert Pattinson

He may have made his name in the Twilight vampire franchise, but this twenty-something’s style has real bite way beyond his teenage fan base.

“Robert has done for men’s hair what Posh once did for women’s. This guy looks great. His unkempt tousled look was so cool, but his new strong, short tailored cut has made him hot. His new look shows off the natural texture of his hair. It’s important to leave a bit of length with hair like Robert’s, otherwise the curls will contract, which wouldn’t be a good look.”

Desmond Murray, HJ’s 2009 Men’s Hairdresser of the Year
