Classic David Beckham
Another season, another hairstyle, and as usual Becks is bang on trend with this tidy homage to a ’50s classic swept back look, but with a touch of the ’80s. Work a small amount of label.m Extra Strong Mousse into wet hair and use your fingers to work the front both up and back while blow drying. Finish by combing down the back and sides.

Peaky David Lynch
No one knows what’s going on in David’s head, but if his peaky quiff is anything to go by, it’s crazy. Take a small amount of label.m Strong Wax, rub between the ends of your fingers and work from the roots up on dry hair to create the shape. Works best with thick hair, and is a winner for any distinguished silver foxes out there.

’80s Andrew Garfield
To emulate the new Spiderman, work a small amount of Kiehl’s Clean-Hold Styling Gel into the front of the hair and comb from the root, all the way to the back. Use Wellaflex by Wella to set. For shorter cuts, work label.m extra Strong Mousse into damp hair, blow dry and comb to one side. A clean, neat shave will ensure you avoid the Wolverine look.
Geek chic Jesse Eisenberg
Those lucky enough to have curls will be glad to hear they’re back. Work Kiehl’s Clean-Hold Styling Gel through the entire hair to add a sense of hold. Be careful not to let this one grow out too long or you’ll go from geek chic to recluse, fast.
Long Brad Pitt
Brad’s look is well kept but not overstyled. Keep products to a minimum and invest in quality shampoos and conditioners, such as Toni&Guy Daily Style Shampoo and Conditioner. To avoid fluffy hair, however, only shampoo every third day. Keen? Tell your stylist you want to grow your hair out and ask for a layered cut.

Crop Kanye West
Kanye fuses a classic look with a contemporary edge by using square asymmetric lines. This tight and clean look enhances strong bone structure. Haircut-wise, this is not one to try on your own. For styling, use American CREW Pomade to add shine. Make sure to wash your face thoroughly at night to avoid getting spots around the hairline.
