Many men take their hair styling clues from British actor Sam Claflin and match their dandy wardrobe with the matching cool hairstyle. Sam Claflin currently layer-cuts his hair and put dark streaks into his casually tousled hair. Designer stubbles, suit and tie complete the casual but polished look. We explain how you can make this style work for you

  • For many years, Don Draper and the crew featured in the US series 'Mad Men' dominated the hairstyle trend with side-partings and 1960s hairstyles. It is quite a change to the layered and slightly tousled hairstyle made popular by Sam Claflin. In combination with the right outfit, the new style has plenty of appeal and charm in a dandy package.

  • Feel Cool and Dandy Wearing Your Hair like Sam Claflin

    Sam Claflin’s hairstyle adds youthful flair to the style of most men. Better yet, fine or thin hair and a widow’s peak are quite compatible with this hairstyle. Curly hair is particularly suitable because curls or waves add bounce and volume to the casual hairstyle. Light streaks and designer stubbles complete the cool but dandy style.

    The layered haircut makes it easier to create the tousled look. The finish may be shiny or matte. Defining a few strands of hair using wax or gel increases the charm of this hairstyle.

    It takes more than the right hairstyle to look like a dandy. The typical dandy is diligently dressed with noticeable style and a penchant for the exceptional. Almost all dandies owe a narrowly cut sports jacket and a well-cut suit in a neutral colour. Designer jeans also belong into a dandy’s wardrobe. This basic wardrobe gains its dandy character through the addition of fashionable ties, silk scarfs and bow ties. The shoes in the latest style must be polished to a dazzling shine. Dandies are known for wearing clothing made from fine materials like silk, velvet, and cashmere.
