Un­der­cut is passé. Let your mane grow, guys

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - FRONT PAGE - Akshay Kaushal akshay.kaushal@htlive.com

Long, flowy locks are as much for men, and our ma­cho bri­gade is proof ! It was any­way an in­for­mal end of the era of the un­der­cut when last month, for­mer English foot­baller and fash­ion icon David Beck­ham shared a pic­ture of his grown mane on In­sta­gram.

Closer home, bear­ing the torch are Bol­ly­wood ac­tors Ran­veer Singh and Ran­bir Kapoor. Ran­veer also loves styling his lus­cious tresses, be it curls to straight or some­thing-in-be­tween.

Is this the come­back of the noughties (2001-2009) style? Celeb hair­styl­ist Rod Anker be­lieves so. “Now that the un­der­cut is passé, the next style has to be the ex­act op­po­site. Medium-long hair for men seems to be on ev­ery­one’s mind. Since Beck­ham is the fron­trun­ner of fash­ion, we’ll see the style on many more men,” he says.

Hair ex­pert Jawed Habib re­calls how the medium long hair was a prom­i­nent choice back in 2003. “John Abra­ham in Jism to Brad Pitt in Troy, and of course, Beck­ham also had it,” he says.

Not sure how to pull it off ? Fol­low celeb stylist Vikram Seth’s hack: “When wear­ing a suit, tie your hair in a neat pony­tail. For a more ca­sual look, blow dry your hair and let it bounce as you strut.”
