Master hairstylist Philippe Tordjman lists the best-looking heads from the runway.

The Block (Bottega Veneta)

CUT: To soften the contours of a strong face, cut sides shorter but keep length on top. This suits both casual and formal affairs.

KEEP: Use pomade. Get a haircut at least every five weeks.

The Sweep (Dries Van Noten)

CUT: For men with finer, wavy hair or those who are starting to lose some hair. Cut bluntly in front, and push hair forward to give the impression of thickness. Leave some length on sides and back to hide temples.

KEEP: Use pomade or wax. This lasts up to six weeks before you need to get a cut again

The Whoosh (Missoni) 

CUT: For men with very thick hair, straight or wavy. Cut sides and back fairly short but keep top long. You need excellent hair with no receding hairline around the temples to pull this off.

KEEP: Gel, mousse, or a heavier styling product is necessary to achieve the wet look and to keep hair in place.

The Wave (Hermès)

CUT: Use scissors, not a clipper, to achieve the soft look. Keep length of sides and back at over half-an-inch to an inch long. Today’s hair trends are moving away from the buzz-cut finish on the sides and back, which is why there’s a bit of length.

KEEP: Break out the blow-dryer. First, blow-dry the hair backward to gain fullness and height. Then, use hair spray, not gel or mousse, to give it a more natural, dry look.

The Fringe (Versace)

CUT: Give front an uneven finish for a more casual look.

KEEP: Use clay to define the cut. A trim is needed every month.

The Slick (Bottega Veneta)

CUT: Similar to the Whoosh, but instead of pushing hair backward, add a part and style hair with movement.

KEEP: Keep everything in place with a weighty styling product.
