Today in extremely unlikely cosmetology news: The inaugural ABS-CBN Ball had something in common with college basketball over the weekend, if you would believe. Depending on which one you were tuned into—the ball or the ball game—you may have caught the rise of a trendy new hairstyle, either on James Reid or on the Ateneo Blue Eagles' Thirdy Ravena. Both stepped out to debut a new 'do last Saturday night, and both caught a lot of attention for it. Check it out:

Naturally, there were a few less-than-enthusiastic reactions—especially in the case of Ravena, who's always been a fashion-forward small forward (as if trying to live up to those Russell Westbrook comparisons, even in terms of off-court style). We'll admit that it's a little too much, but we can't knock him too hard for taking the style risk:

So what is this bold new bunot hairstyle? What would one call this aggressive man-fringe, if perchance one were to ask his barber for it?

It's called the Caesar cut, named after Julius Caesar himself, who in most depictions, wore his hair like this. What it is, essentially, is a short hairstyle, trim at the sides and with straight-cut bangs.

The Caesar cut saw some love in the 90s, back when bangs for men were bangin'. But a modern version called the French Crop is making a comeback with the current fashion set—a Caesar with buzzed side fades, more length up top, and a more crisp, clear-cut line across the forehead. It's a pretty edgy look, so as with all edgy looks, it can be difficult to pull off. Difficult, but not impossible.

If you'd like to give it a shot for yourself, know that it works best for longer faces, and with a lot of texture. Be sure to keep the sides tight and to style it messy, so you don't end up looking like Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber.
