New Boy’s Hair Trend: The “One Direction”

5 years ago

One Direction

At Cozy’s we always work to keep on top of the latest trends in boys’ hairstyles. My blog from October 2011 “4 Great Hairstyles for Boys” is still one of the most popular articles on my website. So…

What’s new now for boys’ hairstyles? The One Direction (or as some are calling it: The Hyper-Bieber!)

The trendy Brits from One Direction have taken Justin Bieber’s signature side swept hair to a whole new level. The tweens shaggy do’s have girls lining up for concert tickets and boys lining up for…new hairstyles??

When Just Bieber arrived on the scene with a swoop that made girls everywhere swoon, his hairstyle became a must-have for boys around the world. Now the British popstars from One Direction have modified the popular Bieber look with an even shaggier windblown edge. Already, the Hyper-Bieber hairdo is the next craze among young boys.

Get the Look
Luckily, the One Direction style requires little effort—perfect for younger boys who want the rock star look, without the rock star maintenance. The most important thing is the length of the hair—it must be medium to long to really achieve the windblown look.

  • Brush hair from the top and sides of the head completely forward over the forehead and ears
  • Use a quarter-size amount of styling gel or cream* and run hands through the hair from the back to front, sweeping it to the “one direction” of your liking
  • Use hands to finish shaping the style as desired

*Remember to choose your product based on the thickness of his hair. Use gel on thicker hair (try So Cozy Styling Gel), and styling cream on thinner and shorter hair (try So Cozy Styling Cream).
