If you were building the perfect man, what hairstyle would you give him?
When I was younger, I was only interested in foppishly long locks (more the chap below than greasy rocker style):
(Newman, NOT Baddiel. Though actually...)
Or it could even grow up rather than down, as in this case:
I even used to quite fancy Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen on the basis of his hair. Well, and his frock coat too, I suppose.
These days, big long hair is not really my bag, though I still like something finger-runnable-through. Luxuriant, yes: lank, no. I can't shake off my preference for the darkness, though the odd blond or redhead has caught my eye. I now like the idea of being able to find a man's scalp without plunging into a thicket of tangles, so shortish but thick, dark, not-too-distractingly styled and definitely none of that sticky-uppiness that footballers and boyband dudes seem to sport these days.
In fact, I could just revisit Rob Newman in more recent times.
This would suit me fine.
Definite barnet turn-offs: periwigs, initials shaved into head, combovers.
Things I like: quiffs, receding hairline, braids & cornrows
NEXT WEEK: Facial hair!
