Works best for those of you with a little wave to your hair
How is it possible that Timothée appeared out of thin air and can already do no wrong? This long cut is effortless, somehow falling in any direction and still looking great. If you dress well, you can go multiple days without washing that mop with soap, and you will still have a sexy look. You DO have to dress well though—week old hair paired with sloppy clothes quickly takes you into hobo territory. Photographed by Billy Kidd
Works with straight, wavy or thick hair
Nick Jonas showed up to the “Heavenly Bodies” themed 2018 Met Gala with Roman inspired, clean, and perfectly blended cut. This is an edgy look, and you’ll want to ask for an extreme fade when you show up at the barber for a copycat cut. Photographed by Frazer Harrison
Works best with thick hair
To continue our apparent streak of swooning over white, millennial celebrities, let’s talk about Robert Pattinson. He may look like he’s perpetually ready to pass out from boredom, but we can’t stop looking at his good hair progression over the years. Our favorite is probably his 2016 messy look. It appears that he also dyed it black for this occasion, which makes his light eyes pop even more.

Looks best with mid-length hair
We love these sectioned, layered braids, especially when he pulls them back into a pony with the majority of the braids out of his face. They show he has unique style, without taking too much attention from that AMAZING jacket.

Works for curly hair
Just because you’re a silver fox, doesn’t mean you have to retire into a been-done, tidy, clean cut—just look at Oscar as an example. Here he is going confidently into his gray days with a slightly disheveled cut, leaving the heavy hair gel at home and looking better than he ever has.

Works for coarse hair
While his look hasn’t changed much, we love Donald's most recent beard and hair length.

Works for straight hair
John Cho is looking good in this hipster fade! The height on top with a clean shave makes his face appear thinner. To copy this look, use a dime sized amount of strong hold hair balm on the top, then comb back to hold this look in place. Photographed by Elizabeth Weinberg/The New York Times/Redux
