Men's fashion haircuts

It's no good having perfectly groomed tresses yourself if your other half is letting the side down with a sloppy style. Now is the perfect time to suggest an image overhaul in time for spring, so where better to look for inspiration than the bets of British menswear's cutting edge catwalks.

Cover Media caught up with celebrity hairdresser Johnnie Sapong to find out what the latest hair styles making waves in the men's fashion world are and how to create them at home.

British Menswear Brand Peter Werth went for a Mod inspired '70s throwback look with an up-to-date twist at the London Menswear shows. The inspiration was a Studio 54 vibe influenced by Suedeheads and the Mods.

"To start apply a generous amount of professional volume mousse to damp hair and blow dry using a vent brush to keep the hair at the front flat and styled into a centre parting," Johnnie explained. "Apply a small amount of firm hold spray to hold the split fringe in place. Then tease the crown area for volume and texture, before brushing the hair at the crown of the head backwards to create movement and separation. Use a firm, hold spray to set the look."

At Oliver Spencer, the modern man was catered for with an '80s cool hair look, taking inspiration from David Byrne and David Bowie. "Phytodefrisant [a non-chemical straightening treatment] was applied to damp hair evenly from root to tip, using 1.5 inch sections," Johnnie revealed. "Hair was then smoothed with a comb, then blow-dried smooth and straight backwards. Use a professional strong sculpting gel applied with a wide toothed comb all over the head from root to tip of the hair. Finally leave hair to dry naturally and split into sections adding texture and movement."

    Toyota finds itself in a tricky situation. Those that enjoy cars as more than a simple means of transportation think of the Camry as a bland spongecake gone stale.

So how do you add flavor to your insipid dish without alienating your loyal -- and vast -- customer base? Enter the 2015 Camry: Toyota's attempt to engage enthusiasts while appeasing to those that think a turbo is nothing but make-believe snail.

    New Hyundai Sonata grows into a large contender

    So it’s taken a while, but Hyundai is in the big leagues now. There is rife evidence of this in its sales numbers, reliability ratings and white paper indices, but the most telling indicator to us, perhaps, is that Hyundai no longer feels the need to overdesign or mimic other automobile designs as if to say, “Look, we can build good cars, too! They look just like these other nice ones!”

    One dead as S. Korea ferry with 476 passengers sinks

    South Korea's coastguard said Wednesday one person had been killed as it struggled to rescue 476 people -- mostly high school students -- aboard a ferry that ran aground and sank off the southern coast. "The ferry is almost completely submerged," Lee said, adding that a detachment of South Korean Navy SEALS were taking part in the rescue. Of the 450 passengers on board the ferry bound for the southern resort island of Jeju, 325 were students from a high school in Ansan, south of Seoul. The 6,825-tonne ferry, which had sailed out of the western port of Incheon on Tuesday evening, ran into trouble some 20 kilometres (13 miles) off the island of Byungpoong.
