When it comes to Men’s hair, generally one or two trends seem to dominate. This year, however, there appear to be no hard or fast rules as to what constitutes cool in the world of hair. Women are sporting everything from candy-coloured highlights, while anything from slicked-back 50s dos, to almost Jedward-like voluminous volume seems to be the in style for men.
