Summer is a time for being a much more relaxed version of yourself and sweating and drying on repeat, 24/7. Combine your relaxed mood with your body’s unstoppable, uh, wetness, embrace the wild ways of the season, and extremely good things will happen to your hair and beard. Here, 12 guys who are out there, as we speak, proving it. Cop their looks or just use their moves as a general reminder that bad hair is good hair and there is no need to sweat the perfection of your side part in the middle of July.
Finn Wolfhard's Big Ass Bowl
Move over Timothee Chalamet and your perfectly tousled shag! Finn Wolfhard is here with a rounder, curly, 100% more awkward haircut and we love him for it. Combined with those razor sharp cheekbones, fully kitted out in Saint Laurent, dude looks righteous.
Jaden Smith’s Asymmetrical Buzz-Cut
Jaden Smith remains 49 steps ahead of us with this neon pink, half shaved buzz-cut and whatever he has in his mouth here. Should you go similarly asymmetrical with your hair this summer? You either have to be extremely brave or extremely lazy.
Usher’s High Top Curls
Usher’s a pretty impeccably groomed, classic guy so you know something crazy’s in the grooming water when he starts rolling up to places with Kid ‘n Play-level hair. If you just can’t let go completely, this is a happy haircut middle ground between safe and 2019-level insane.
Maluma’s Black & White Buzz
Maluma’s bleach-blonde flat top would look futuristic and fancy if he had a clean shaven face, but throw in a grown out, freshly undyed beard and it’s grooming anarchy. If you want to keep your friends and loved ones on their toes this summer, send them these mixed messages.
J Balvin’s Rainbow Crewcut
J Balvin puts the absolute most effort into his dye job—and just slightly less effort into the precision of his buzz-cut. We appreciate this disconnect and anyone who isn’t afraid to greet summer’s relentless awesome with an equally enthusiastic grooming statement.
Jay-Z’s Mad Mane
Jay-Z’s long, unruly twists get better with every appearance, month, year. He’s also refined his accessories game to the point where he now has a black-tie headband in his arsenal, which...respect. Dreaded guys, it might take you several summers to get to this level of perfection, but it’s well worth getting the ball rolling now.
Seth Rogen and Pedro Pascal’s ‘70s Fuzz
Nothing says Best Summer Ever like ‘70s-era grooming. Maybe you grow your curly hair out, maybe you rock a mustache, maybe you show some chest hair or throw some aviator glasses into mix. These are personal choices that all take you to the same, extremely fun-groomed place.
Jared Leto’s Serious Flow
Jared Leto is (most recently) known for his soft, Serpico-inspired shag. Only now, it's a whole lot longer. Dark color, lived-in, fuzzy texture: extremely enviable things are happening.
Juice WRLD’s Frosted Tips
Frosted tips on boy banders in the early 2000s was a very unfortunate grooming moment. Frosted tips on Juice WRLD in 2019 on stage, dipped pink, paired with an AC/DC T-shirt? Pretty great. Maybe it’s time we all took a dip.
Donald Glover’s Wise-Guy Beard
Much like Seth Rogen, Donald Glover has embraced longer hair, a longer beard, and whatever gray and white strands happen to surface in the process. With everything nice and clean and defined where it needs to be, the actor and singer has never looked cooler.
Ramy Youssef’s Big Mood Curls
When Ramy Youssef isn’t in a baseball cap he’s curl’s out, fully embracing his natural grooming gifts. If you take nothing else away from this here compilation of crazy grooming ideas let it be this: let your hair be who it was born to be.
Keanu Reeves’ Surfrider Chop
If you like the idea of long hair but crave structure as a person, go full ‘90s, full Keanu and cut your hair across one extremely precise line. Then grow out your beard, let the fuzzy stuff be fuzzy, and watch your handsomeness level rise to unimaginable heights.
