Ever since they danced their way into our hearts during "The X Factor," the boys of One Direction have broken records, hearts and traditional views on hair styling techniques. Although each of the five members of this international singing group has a distinct hair style, their hairdresser, Lou Teasdale, revealed ways that men can copy these signature coifs on their own.
For the most part, Teasdale explained that she keeps the styling simple, using just one or two hair products on each head. She told People magazine that she opts for a volumizing product to help create the texture, then a styling spray to hold it all in place.
For those with shorter styles, they may want to copy Zayn Malik's quiff. To start, brush the hair forward from the back of the head, which allows natural waves to form in the front. Then, Teasdale recommended a spray that could hold the look in place while adding volume - an effect created by the Steiner Abundance Volumizing Spray for Fine Hair 150ml.
Boys with longer locks should look to Harry Styles, whose curls attract girls for miles. Teasdale displayed a new look for the young star on her Instagram account, which shows the star sporting a messy look parted on the side. To create a similar effect, men with longer hair should use a holding product to keep hair from their eyes, but allow strands to fall freely around their heads.
