DUDE DISCLAIMER: Man up, do not be frightened by new do's, change is good, and open minds are attractive.
As previously stated, we've seen an abundance of retro influence in both hair and fashion recently. And when I say retro, I'm talking all over the board: Elvis, the 1930's (thanks to the hit tv series Boardwalk Empire), and the 1950/1960's (thanks to MadMen). There's also a real nu-wave vibe I've been catching, and I like it. I like boys.
The Pomp/Quiff: Length on top, with or without volume, and shorter smooth sides. Low maintenance, easy to style. Use classic pomade on sides and through the front. Borrow your girlfriends blow drier to look like Morrissey.

Dolce & Gabbana Spring '12 quiff.
The Undercut: Tight cropped sides, disconnected from length on top. Worn slicked and smoothed, good for straight to wavy hair. Use gel with water or a classic pomade to keep it real vintage.

Are we seeing a trend here? So fresh and so clean, men! Even with length, neatness is key.

Guys, these are just some ideas to get you thinking out of the usual #2 all over. Thou shalt not be scared of style or change. Thou shalt take thirty seconds to rub some pomade in thine hair (or get a lady friend to do it for you!). MEN, you deserve awesome hair! So come and get it!
