STYLE. GROOMING. INSPIRATION. ADVICE.
Ten years ago today, an aspiring musician from High Green in Sheffield turned 19 and embarked upon what would be, by any standards, quite a big 'last year of your teens'. Alex Turner went from fronting an unknown garage band to leading the biggest, most hyped new British guitar act in a decade.

In honour of Turner's 29th birthday, then, we present a brief guide to the ever-changing styles of the Arctic Monkeys frontman.
