Having a bad hair day? How about a bad hair month, or even year? Heck, maybe your haircut has always sucked. If so, it’s time for a new one. But what kind? What should you direct your barber to do? Well, if you’re looking for a little inspiration, then check out the greatest haircuts of all time that made men famous.
The Full Bohemian
Made famous by the great Bob Dylan, his hair naturally grew in the shape of a mushroom cloud, giving him that poetic-prophet look. Dylan has this to say about his head of hair, “All this talk about long hair is just a trick. It’s been thought up by men and women who look like cigars—the anti-happiness committee. They’re all freeloaders and cops. You can tell who they are: They’re always carrying calendars, guns, or scissors.”
Wild And Untamed
Wild and untamed (but washed), brought to you by the late River Phoenix – who inspired the also late Health Ledger with his locks.
You don’t have to be going bald to shave your head, although, MJ sure was. And just like he defied gravity, he defied mother nature by shaving it all off, forever making it ok for all men of colour to look smooth, sleek and stealthy.
The Real Man-Bun
Man-Bun, meet your master; the real man’s man bun. Rocked best by Karl Lagerfeld, this is how men are supposed to tie their hair back. Power to the ponytail.
The Finger In The Socket
Here’s a Eureka moment – let your hair do whatever the hell it wants. It worked great for Seinfeld’s Kramer, and even better for the mad scientist Albert Einstein.
As if his voice wasn’t enough, Rod Stewart had to stand out with his hair too. And while many men worry they’ll never get laid again if they were to rock such a do, believe us, you want Rod’s life flashing before your eyes when you die.
Before Don Draper there was, and still is Pat Riley. When asked when he decided to rock the slicked back look, Pat said this – “ I was in between jobs—I’d just retired as a player—and I spent a couple of weeks on the beach. And during that time, I started to comb it back while it was wet. It’s been that way since I was 35, so a long time now.”
Far From Dead Dreads
Apparently the bible says, “He shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.” And Bob Marley being a god fearing Rastafarian, did as the lord said and let his hair grow, saying, “I am a believer. Look at god”. It appears The Weeknd has found his faith too,
Unexpected Hair God
Sure, you didn’t see this one coming but hey, we’ve got to cater to the follicly-challenged too. And who better than comedic genius Larry David whose famous for his half head of hair. “The bald man is the better lover. First, you have the appreciation factor. The bald man is so thrilled to be in bed with a woman that he’ll do anything and everything, and all with tremendous gusto. And, of course, there’s the testosterone. We’ve got it in spades. That’s why we went bald in the first place” says Larry.
