Hollywood star Robert Pattinson now sports a cropped look for his forthcoming film that is fast become a fad among city boys. They are thronging the nearby salons carrying Pattinson’s picture asking for the same look.
What suits you
Hair expert Jawed Habib agrees that the look is fast becoming a statement. “It is a summer look and youngsters today are open to experimentation. Everyday I get a few boys who want to sport the same Pattinson look,” says Habib.
It is a modern version of the crew cut that has always been there. The Pattinson one is modified and stylish. Sylvie, hair expert says, “The cut looks good on people with square jaw lines, but boys with all types of face cuts want to have this cut. I do try to explain them that it won’t suit them, but they are so persistent that they just won’t listen because it is a rage among their friends.”
This hairstyle is not just in fashion, but also maintenance free. “The cut in itself is ultra cool and you can just shampoo it and leave it. Still if you want, you can use hair wax to keep it in place all the time. It suits best on people who are tall, slim and don’t have a broad body structure,” explains Sylvie.
Karan Gupta a student says, “It is a very cool look - short and neat. Last week, I got my hair done that way and now two of my friends want the same.” This youthful hairstyle looks best when worn with semiformal outfits and light cool cottons.
