Bro code: The most versatile hairstyle for men

Think of men’s hairstyle trends in the past couple of years, and two distinct ‘dos come to mind — the painfully passé man-bun, and the fashionable fade. The problem with either is the lack of liberty one can take with stylish each ‘do. You either tug everything into a bun and hope to look more Jared Leto than greasy uncle, or slick on some pomade and jet out the door. Stylistic choices are also limited to hats or hair colour, and that’s pretty much it.

We get men prefer taking the fuss-free route, and sticking to what works. If you are getting bored of rehashing the same look at the barber’s every month, one man on the A/W’16 Fashion Week runways has got the answer. 18 year-old model, Finnlay Davis, sports a modern, shaggy cut that appears unassuming, until you realise the sheer styling power behind it — Davis walked 26 runways, each with a different style from the same base cut, making it the most versatile hairstyle for men this season.

What is the modern shag cut?

It’s pretty much the 70s shaggy cut and the 60s bowl cut combined, and modernised a tad — long on top with soft, longer outer edges. It’s pretty layered, and lends itself to being textured easily. The longer fringe is the pièce de résistance, allowing for the cut to be styled in a myriad of looks. This hairdo is best adopted by people who already have longish hair, unless you’ve got the patience to wait for your hair to grow out (it’s well worth it!).

 This haircut works whether your hair is straight or curly, though it’s not particularly forgiving to frizzier hair. You can style it straight, have it in beachy waves, sweep the fringe to the side for the textured ‘do, slick it back for a quiff, and the list goes on. The best part is, if you’re not gunning for a slicked back look, you don’t have to work your hair with a brush — I-woke-up-like-this tresses are key. If fancy yourself a sartorial chameleon, give the modern shag cut a chance.
