Around the time he starred in ‘The Swimming Pool’ with Romy Schneider, Alain Delon was sporting a mid-length style, one of 2014’s on-trend looks for men. Somewhere in between a long and short hairstyle, this mid-length look is one of the easiest lengths to wear and is simple to change on a daily basis.
It all started in 1969. Alain Delon and his on-screen girlfriend play a feisty young couple on holiday in a villa in the south of France. Romy Schneider’s beauty is simply stunning, but Alain Delon gives her a run for her money with his smouldering good looks. Considered one of his generation’s most talented and charismatic actors, he wore his hair for the role in a side-swept style with mid length hair. The style enabled him to wear his hair both straight and in natural waves.
To re-create this iconic Alain Delon look, head to your salon and ask for the actor’s style. You will be able to adapt your new cut on a daily basis thanks to its versatility. For a more refined look, use gel to slick back your lengths. Start by creating a side parting, then sweep back along the side of your head and run a nut-sized amount of gel through the hair to create an all-over wet-look. If you prefer a natural look, once you have washed your hair, allow to dry naturally without using a fixing product.
