Male Hair Styles Through the Ages:
50's- Elvis and James Dean rocked the slicked-back quiff and side-burns, leaving women all shook-up...
60's- Men emulated the Beatles' long straight hair or the shaggy locks of The Stones and David Cassidy.
70's- Romantic, feathered hippy locks, The 'Fro or Punky styles later in the decade were the must-have looks to be emulated.
80's- Hair and lots of it was the order of the day, from rockers like Bon Jovi and Motley Crue to Billy Ray Cyrus's infamous Mullet, plus New Romantics' volumous creations from the likes of Wham, Spandau Ballet and Duran Duran.
90's- Dreamboats like Dawson (from his Creek) had floppy fringes and sun-tinged ends. The Hi-top fade stormed hip-hop culture, and creative designs were shaved into the heads of many a young male.
00's- Beckham's Mohawk (or Fauxhawk) stormed the world, the Mullet had a short-lived comeback, and the emo sweeping fringe hid teens everywhere from sunlight.
10's- It's Here... Introducing... The Buzz Cut. THE hairstyle for cutting-edge men in the 21st Century.
In today's fast-paced society men don't want to (and don't have time to) spend hours washing, blow-drying and styling their hair. Modern men want a get-up-and-go style that is sharp, attractive and low maintenance. Having a short crop like the fine specimens above is the ultimate, and it even saves you money in the long-run as it's cheaper to maintain than conventional hair cuts, plus there's no need for shampoo, conditioner or styling products!
The buzz cut, often worn by no-nonsense men who want to project a sexy, macho exterior, is actually incredibly wearable for a huge range of guys. It can make the face look more chiselled and defined, just check out these other close-shaved hunks...
People have been shaving their heads for centuries, for all sorts of reasons from religious to aesthetic, but more increasingly- to help to disguise baldness. There are many options out there for men suffering from hair loss, though none without their associated risks.
