NEW DEHLI: According to hairstylist and entrepreneur Rishi Gupta, actors Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan are the new coiffure trend setters. Easy to achieve and simple to maintain, try out the following hair styles in 2014, suggests Delhi-based Gupta, who is the managing director and founder of Trendz group of salons.

“As each year passes, hairstyles evolve and so does fashion. Edgy, sharp and clean looks are in vogue in 2014 as far as guys are concerned,” Gupta said in a statement. “This year, hairstyles have taken out the complex monumental dos and gone back to an era of effortless casual looks. Busy lifestyle and a desire for versatility have changed the way we approach hair.”

Here are some styles you could try:

Close razor short crop

This style involves a crew cut on the sides while leaving some length on the crown with lots of texture to play with. Simple styling products such as setting gels and wax may be used.

Gelled-up, dapper do

Popularised by cricketer Virat Kohli, this edgy style is particularly for men with short hair. It is a vintage look with side parting and quite easy to achieve. All one needs, is a sparing amount of mousse and gel.

Gelled and combed-back look

Saif was seen sporting this suave look in his post-wedding pictures with wife Kareena Kapoor. This is the most uncomplicated of them all and timelessly stylish. Just get a little pomade (hair product for gloss) and slick it back using a slim-bristled comb.

Straight shag

This requires medium-length hair and is ideal for men with strong jawlines. Shahid has been seen rocking this style for quite some time now. The cut comprises long hair on the crown and medium layers at the back. This cut can soften that alpha male jaw while giving you a dapper look. An anti-frizz serum is all that one needs to maintain the look.
