The Saint-Laurent Spring-Summer 2014 catwalk show had a distinct 50s feel about it. Alongside rockabilly quiffs and leather trousers, it was the rebellious crew cut that took centre stage. This look, usually worn for more formal and smart-dressed occasions, is officially having its moment in summer 2014.
The crew cut traditionally involves having a large, upright style on the top section of the head; one of this season’s biggest looks. Models, singers and anyone who wants to be anyone is wearing this style, whereas just a few years ago it was ranked at the opposite end of the ‘cool’ scale. What goes around always comes back around, and this style is certainly no exception. The crew cut is fairly simple to style and maintain on a day-to-day basis, meaning men of all ages are being tempted to try this vintage cut. Remember, however, that you will need to get a professional to cut your hair rather than giving it a go yourself in your bathroom!
