If you’re searching for a way to spend your Christmas bonus (or annual holiday check from your Nonna), you’d be hard-pressed to find a better cause than a gaddamn haircut. Like a fresh pair of kicks or a secret alter ego, an updated coif will have you walking through the world with a keen, untouchable air of confidence.

 

But we understand that change is daunting, so to help motivate you to the barber chair, we cherry-picked ten of-the-moment hairstyles (attached to the heads of well-dressed, well-known dudes) for you to consider.

 

Whether you commit to chopping off a few inches, experiment with bleach, or simply try a new side part, there is no better moment than the turn of the calendar year to treat yourself to a makeover. Not to mention, the winter break is the perfect window to test run something different; it gives you time to understand and work your new look before re-entering the real world. Read on to see the ’dos we're digging—and a word to the wise, don’t skimp on the grooming products.

Shawn Mendes

Canadian pop wunderkind Shawn Mendes gives us modern day Elvis vibes in more ways than one. We dig this effortless ’50s-inspired coif, complete with a side-swept curl. Don’t forget the pomade.

Shameik Moore

The man behind the latest (and arguably greatest) Spider-Man makes a strong case for short dreads. Try this messy, ’90s-reminiscent look for everyday edge—and take notes from Moore’s slick wardrobe predilections too.

Adam Driver

If your instincts are to swap the scissors for B-vitamins to promote hair growth, then Adam Driver is a worthy muse. His shoulder-grazing black strands seem to effortlessly fall into a low-maintenance shag that looks consistently cool, even when it slides into mullet territory.

Lakeith Stanfield

We loved Lakeith Stanfield’s dread-fro in Sorry To Bother You, but his current clean-and-short silhouette is simply classic. Take this pic to your hairdresser, and earn bonus points if you complement the look with a circle beard.

Justin Bieber

Shed 2018 drama and your hair along with it. Justin Bieber shows us how it’s done in his spur-of-the-moment buzz cut, which is totally transformative and something every guy should do at least once in their lifetime. Hate it? No sweat, your strands will grow out by spring.

Joe Alwyn

From the natural blonde shade to the side part and medium length, actor Joe Alwyn’s mop calls to mind Titanic-era Leo, aka, you should emulate it immediately. Taylor Swift and British accent not included.

Pete Davidson

Feeling rebellious? Go for bold with bleach à la Pete Davidson’s neo-punk steeze. It may take time to adjust to this striking change, but you’ll embrace the power of platinum sooner than later.

Jason Momoa

Because ladies don’t get to have all the fun with beach waves. Jason Momoa’s Aquaman-long locks complete with sun-kissed, salt-water highlights are the thing to try in 2019. Sure, it’s a big time commitment, and you have to push through a few awkward-length stages to achieve the perfect shoulder-length style, but nothing good comes for free.

Evan Peters

Evan Peters is a master of transformation in each new iteration of American Horror Story—but in real life, his wavy red hair remains reliably on point. And if you’ve ever wondered about bangs, his side-swept, textured style is solid inspiration.
