The new favourite element in the hair styles of male stars is the side parting. The side hair is cut slightly shorter than the top hair, which is combed sideways to form the hint of a quiff or it is combed tightly to the scalp with the help of gel. Below, we introduce different styling variations for the new hair style and show you how David Beckham, Justin Bieber and other stars made the trendy style their own

  • David Beckham is not only admired as a professional soccer player he is also a style icon. Women adore him. The men who do not (secretly) idolize him are still (secretly) watching his every move. That is hardly surprising. David Beckham is also a trailblazer in matters of hair styling. He does not only wear the trendiest hair styles, he defines them. Meanwhile, the ever changing hair styles with that certain pizazz and flair have become the hallmark of the dark blonde British star. Over the years, he bound his medium long hair to a cool ponytail, he bleached his short hair platinum blonde, braided them into cornrows, tried the style Iroquois tribesmen wore on the war path (actually he wore a tuned-down Mohawk style), and he used an Alice band to gather his hair. There is probably hardly a modern hair style, which David Beckham hasn't tried yet. It is hardly a surprise that he is again ahead of the new trend wearing a hair style with side parting.

    David Beckham, father of four, first showed the look at the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William. People may actually watch his hair style before they pay any attention to the underwear he models. His side and neck hair is cut short. The somewhat longer hair on the crown of his head is a little longer and parted on one side. His front hair is shaped into a smart quiff.

    Whether the dress code is casual or very formal, the many hair styles with side parting fit every outfit. Please enjoy our hair style suggestions in the gallery below. We hope our instructions are helpful to you.

  • Hair Styles of Stars: Men Wearing Side-Parted Hair

    Men's Hair Style with Side Parting in the 1960s Style

    Not unexpectedly, trend-setter David Beckham was one of the first stars wearing the trendy male hair style with side parting. His style is reminiscent of Don Draper in Mad Men. Your top hair should be thick and at least 4 – 5 inches long if you want to style it into a Beckham quiff.

    After shampooing, simply work volumising mousse through your covering hair. Create a straight side parting using fine-tooth comb. Then blow-dry your top hair while running your fingers through its entire length from the front to the back. Shaping the quiff is easier if you push your hair to the side of the parting before allowing it to fall to the other side. Use wax to shape your hair and apply hair spray for lustre and hold

    Men's Hair Style with Side Parting the Modern Way

    Robbie Williams' side hair is cut very short and forms a strong contrast with the about 2.5 to 3 inches long covering hair on top of the head. The elements of this haircut add up to a very striking modern look. Working styling mousse through the top hair after shampooing helps to style the quiff while blow-drying your hair. Apply extra-gloss hair spray for hold and beautiful lustre

    Hair Style with Side Parting for the Fashionable Guy

    Ed Westwick is known from the hit show 'Gossip Girl'. Here, he looks casual with his side-parted hair. The side hair is softly layered. Right above the ear, it is razor-short. The side-parted top hair falls to an almost accidental casual quiff. Individual strands of hair are accentuated using wax. The three-day stubbles fit the hair style and complete the look

    Side-Parted Hair Combined with the Wet Look

    This year on 1st March 2012, Canadian pop musician Justin Bieber turns 18 years old. For evening events he already prefers the serious gel-styled hair style with side parting over the youthful mop-top. The young star obviously wants to look mature. For this version of the side-parted hair style, the top front hair should be at least 2 inches long. After shampooing, simply apply wet gel with extra hold and comb your hair tightly to your scalp

    Men's Tousled Hair Style with Side Parting

    Recently, you may have seen actor Ryan Gosling in the movie ‘Drive’. His softly styled, about 2 inches long side-parted hair looks slightly tousled. The best styling tools to create this type of look are the fingers. Shape your hair with your fingers while you blow-dry it and also use your fingers for the final touch. Pomade works well if you want to accentuate individual strands of hair, and it also gives the hair some shine
