Neo Regency Men's Hairstyles

Roger wrote a post on Neo Regency Men's Hairstyles for the Hairstyler.com. Below are his descriptions of the Prince Regent's hairstyle and the modern version of it.


The Real Deal: King George IV had cool Regency hair. Check it out: it's typical of the period in so far as it's cropped quite short and has a distict wind-blown look about it... his hair's all combed forward onto the forehead and kind of tousled. I guess the bangs are the central element and they're cut at brow length with plenty of texture.

The Neo Regency Look: Chace Crawford's hair is an example of Neo Regency today. It's short on the back and sides with a longer textured fringe, swept forward and piecey, making his hair a bit like an updated Caesar cut too. Some hair product is essential for creating the texture and making the bangs a little wispy, but don't use too much or you'll risk looking greasy.

Loved the men's hairstyles. I think it's important to have an idea about customs of the time and fashion. It really helps to picture Austens characters more clearly...as well as others.

As long as it's clean, most hairstyles for men are O.K. with me, past and present, powdered wigs excluded. A lot of the cutting edge stuff ( and colors )now I just cannot get into, ( for either men or women ) !
