Ah, fashion week. So hard to get right. Go too commercial, the frowgentsia call 'BORING.' Too abstract, they cry 'RIDICULOUS.' What's an impeccably dressed creative director to do? 

During his brilliant A/W '19 menswear show in Paris, which took '50s-style suiting and deconstructed it several times over, designer Thom Browne found time to field the fashion week hairstyle to end all fashion week hairstyles. Presenting: the fashion troll.

One part Dr. Seuss, two parts the chewed plastic eunuch on the end of your Year 4 pencil, these were coiffures that defied the laws of menswear and gravity as we know it, feats of follicular engineering that involved lots of hairspray, lots of boulder-jawed models and (probably) lots of hair extensions from far flung lands. And they were very, very fun.

What better way to liven up the post-office drink than with an extra large '99 of human hair and Dax Wave and Groom? Think of the 2019 promotion prospects, too: what a fine head of hair, your line manager will say, get that man a pay rise: stat. Well-timed, as you'll probably need it to pay for the sundae-sculpting kit. 

In a world of homogenous short-backs-and-sides, the fashion troll is the lid to give male grooming the shake up it needs in 2019. Coming to a barbershop window near you. Maybe.
