It Haircut: The Flop Top


Male haircuts have been through it all. Remember the butt cut of high school days -- made popular by the Furlongs and Leo Dicaprios of our youth? or the razor-friendly Kid n' Play fade? How about the George Clooney circa ER Cesar cut? We took it and ran with it. Well thanks to Patrick Dempsey, 2006 welcomes the next male haircut : the flop top. The loose, messy, but still greased-up look signals both sensitivity and smoothness. A good flop top is wavy all over, long enough to be lustrous, but short enough to be non-confrontational  It pairs nicely with facial stubble and engenders a kind of femininity not commonly found in past hair fads. If the metro-sexual haircuts of the early 2000's signaled a breed of men who relied heavily on hair products, this new look only reinforces that sensibility. Requiring at least two quarter-sized scoops of pomade, this flowy man-look proves it's okay to be more beautiful then the women you date as long as you've got a smug smile to go along with it. Here we christen the flop top with a handful of serum and a photo gallery after the jump....

What about poor George on "GA"? He grew out his hair so the Slut would would notice him.
