Maybe you can blame Don Draper. Or perhaps just thank this look’s simple elegance. Whatever the reason, over sixty years later, the hairstyles of the 1950s are totally setting the bar for some of the best men’s looks today. From pompadours to classy undercuts, it is nearly impossible not to notice our era’s fascination with the slick styling of one our cultural golden ages. While we may no longer have James Dean or Elvis, some of our sexiest modern icons still rock the look; check out leading men like James Franco, Ryan Gosling, and Justin Timberlake or even soccer gods David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Going for 50s inspired hair is absolutely a safe bet, vintage is totally trendy and the cut is going to look great on nearly everyone. Men should also rejoice because it is a pretty easy style to maintain with a good degree of versatility. Options abound, with these cuts, as you can go natural and leave out the product for a more casual carefree look that will still draw eyes, or add something to your hair to give yourself the dapper class necessary for dressing up. When it comes to product use a pomade to complete the old timey vibe or if you are not going for the greased lightning look then a molding clay should get the job done and give you a modern edge.
