bond

Elegant and mysterious, James Bond was the original Don Draper, but better. Over the years each of the men who’ve taken on the role have brought a unique twist to the signature Bond look. Connery’s bond was charming and sported a classic Rat-Pack coif. Roger Moore tops his slick superhero vibe with a hairstyle reminiscent of Clark Kent. Pierce Brosnan’s sly, winking Bond has a slightly softer style. Daniel Craig’s tough, cool bond wears a shorter, leaner shape. Pick your Bond and channel your mysterious side with a dapper new cut.

pompadour

When we talk about male fashion we often uses words like strong and tough, but men don’t have to be rugged. For the man that prefers a more elegant aesthetic, the pompadour is the sophisticated choice. Sleek at the sides with a voluminous top the pompadour is simple, yet dramatic. Learn to create it in the notes. –– Laura Martin

pastel hair

Hairstyle trend-setter Jared Leto showed up at the MTV Music Awards with candy pink strands, proving that the pastel trend has crossed the gender divide. Pink, violet and baby blue aren’t colors traditionally favored by men, but the fashion industry is shifting away from gender-distinct trends. The Pantone color palette for fall 2015 is, for the first time in the company’s history, a single list of androgynous hues instead of a pair of gender divided palettes. Is the move toward gender neutral fashion a passing trend or is it here to stay? How does it apply to hair? Learn more in the style notes.

mens tapered look

The men’s look that’s dominated the trends for the last few years has been a prohibition-era inspired disconnected shape: super short sides and back, longer disconnected top. What’s kept the look fresh season after season is variations in styling. We’ve seen it slicked back, brushed to the side, tousled, and now elevated. Gelled or waxed, roots lifted and ends flicked back, creating shape that adds a little eighties influence to the twenties inspiration for a look that’s part dapper and part skater. Pair it with a denim jacket or a fitted suit. –– Laura Martin
