Nobody has had a fiercer hair evolution than Harry Styles. The very mention of Harry Styles should conjure up a long-haired lad on a red carpet in a striking Gucci suit. For someone who was hurled into the top tier of the music industry at such a young age, you can’t help but think of how he has evolved. And not just in music either: in film, in fashion and in grooming too.
He’s famed for his long, wild locks (and for good reason), but since giving them the chop for the filming of Dunkirk in 2016, it’s clear that the Northern-born star has sported pretty much every hairstyle. He’s experimented with his hair lengthwise – obviously – but also through cut, finish and accessories. There’s plenty of styling tips to be taken from his ever-changing looks.
During lockdown, so many guys have had to deal with hair that’s grown far longer than they would normally allow. If they haven’t shaved it all off that is. So really, now is the perfect time to delve into a Harry Styles inspired styling session!
If the thought has ever crossed your mind that you would like to grow your hair, but get put off by the awkward in-between length – now is the time to experiment. All from the safety (and privacy) of your home.
We call this long men’s hairstyle: The Carefree Quiff
Perfect for: Guys with hair longer than 2 inches
Grab a hairdryer and blast dry the hair on medium heat and speed. Once the hair is around 80 percent dry, pull and stretch the roots to add height which will help to remove the remaining water in the hair.
Using a small round brush, blow dry sections away from the face. Try and wrap as much of the hair as you can around the barrel so it creates a soft curl and adds movement to your style. If your hair is naturally curly, use the diffuser with your hair dryer instead of blow-drying for added movement on your defined curls.
Once dry use the TIGI Bed Head For Men Pure Texture Molding Paste to create your desired shape and add definition. Be sure to create height through the central top, directing your sides loosely to the back.
Finish the style with EIMI Dynamic Fix to set the shape and complete your look!
