These days, there are few, if any, standard rules that apply when a man is getting himself together in the morning. But just because you see some celebrity rocking a new, popular haircut doesn’t mean you have to follow suit. No, you want a style that will work for you—and more often than not, that means starting with one of these classic male haircuts that’ll always work.
Here, we’ve detailed 10 hairstyles will keep you looking your masculine best, with some help from AXE Hair Celebrity Spokestylist Amy K., who helps the heroes of Hollywood—like Eddie Redmayne and Ryan Reynolds—look their best for high-profile events. Pick a hairstyle that works for you, and then feel free to put your own current modification to make each look your own. Your hair may be a different texture or thickness from your ideal cut. Don’t sweat it—just be willing to go with the flow and rock your own modified version.
Oh, and one last pro tip: If you like these—or ANY hairstyles you see—take the photo to your barber or stylist. It’s actually a major help to them, simply because it gives them a reference point to understand what you’re talking about when you’re describing how you want your hair to look.
