Gents: want to try something new this year? The good news is there isn’t a ‘one style fits all’ approach to hair this year; there are loads of new trends in cut and colour to choose from.

Now, simply twist around to create a bun and secure in place with a pretty grip or slide. Love this? We know we do!
