Trends come and go, we all know that, and you needn’t abide by the frivolous rules of fashion, but…when the trends are as good as the hairstyle trends emerging in 2014, it might just be worth stopping in the mirror and seeing how you can channel your inner A-Lister with one of these age-befitting ‘dos!
BEST FOR MEN IN THEIR 20s
What it Is: If lucky enough to be in your 20’s with a full head of hair still atop your fresh-faced head, then the dishevelled quiff is absolute must. Keep it long on top, and not too short on the sides. Add volumising mouse to roots and a gentle tousle with wax for the perfectly imperfect look.

BEST FOR MEN IN THEIR 30s
What It Is: Slicked-back hair has made a big comeback in recent years following the popularity of the likes of Mad Men. This year, however the slick is a little more casual. For a controlled take on this hairstyle, simply follow Timberlake’s lead and comb medium-length hair back using a small amount of gel. Don’t worry if it doesn’t look perfect at the ends – this simply adds to the look.

BEST FOR MEN IN THEIR 40s
What It Is: Time to leave the floppy locks in the last decade and get a bit more serious at this age. Despite the put together appearance, this is actually an easy to wear style that can be adapted for every hair type.

BEST FOR MEN IN THEIR 50s
What it is: The silver fox, channel your inner Cary Grant with the ultimate hairstyle of 2014. Keep older lengths slightly shorter to hide the signs of ageing – add beard for extra appeal.

Or…HAIR AT ANY AGE
What it is: If your hair is looking a little sparse, then wear it with pride, a la Mr Statham or Bruce Willis for the most masculine of hairstyles that transcends the generations. Who says loosing you locks is something to worry about?
