"What type of hairstyle is more in style now: the wet, gel-based look, or a more dry, pastier look?" -Dave W., Los Angeles, CA
Dry hairstyles are old news, says Jason Shankey, a Belfast-based grooming expert. Today, he says, it’s all about “pompadour-inspired styles, but with more volume and height, and a sleeker look using more shine-based product." Think Ronald Reagan and Elvis Presley, but with a modern edge. “It’s an adaptation of the sleeked-back Brylcreem look,” says Shankey.
