Most stylish hairstyles 2014

By Gavin Jewkes, 23 December 2014

2014 gave rise to a number of disturbing grooming trends – among them Kanye’s etched-in chevrons and Bieber’s now infamous bleach job. However, it was also a year that saw a new wave of rockabilly-inspired styles and longer, artfully unkempt looks usurp the ubiquitous graduated shave and side parting. Huzzah! At long last, it’s time to say ‘yes!’ to looking as handsome as hell and letting your tresses express some real personality.

Here are our five fave manes of the past 12 months.

Alex Turner

When Alex Turner emerged from his shaggy-haired, indie-rock chrysalis to become a bona fide style icon, packaged in skinny jeans, plain white tees and the kind of pomade-soaked quiff that puts Elvis in the shade, no one knew if his slicker-than-your-average ‘do would last. But it has – and long may it reign.

Theo Hutchcraft

As one half of debonair synth-pop duo Hurts, Theo Hutchcraft is unfailingly well groomed. As is de rigueur for any band pushing melancholy New Wave, his hair is always scraped into a sharp, sweeping pompadour.

Kit Harington

Game Of Thrones star Harington has made having hair longer than your girlfriend’s cool (and manly) again.

Zayn Malik

Malik debuted a hairstyle inspired by Johnny Depp’s rockabilly look from 1990’s Cry Baby at the American Music Awards. Swept back with a strand of hair hanging loose over his eye, One Direction’s moodiest member sent the Twittersphere into meltdown and had hair stylists' phones ringing off the hook with copycats.

Harry Styles

The sort of 'do one might expect to find on the head of a heavily-accented footballer, Styles’ long-haired lothario style makes him look like the love child of an AC Milan player and a Rolling Stone. But we’re not necessarily saying that's a bad thing.
