Watch One Man Take On 100 Years Of Hairstyles In 90 Seconds

Think the man bun was bad? A new video has recreated 100 years of male hair and moustache looks in just 90 seconds, and we can’t stop watching

From the 1920s middle parting to the 2000s spikes, male hairstyles have been on quite a journey - and that’s not even mentioning the moustaches. One video, including one very brave male model, has recreated 100 years of men’s grooming looks, and the results are mesmerising - almost as mesmerising as these world leaders with man buns. Here are all the looks you need to take note of:

1910s
If you like your men to look like Freddie Mercury, this is the look for you. That is one well-groomed moustache, with a neat side parting too.

1920s
Got a comb? The 1920s middle part requires serious attention – plus a LOT of hair gel. We can imagine this guy in a knitted cardigan and braces.

1930s
This is a more minimal moustache than the 1910s, but we’re feeling that slight wave in the hair.

1940s
Hello sailor! Clean shaven with a LOT of volume under that cap, the 1930s is probably one of our favourite male looks.

1950s
Grease, anyone? The 1950s is all about a well-gelled quiff and slicked back sides, preferably worn with a leather jacket and blue jeans.

1960s
Now, we thought the 1960s was all about sideburns and bowl cuts, but this model is rocking longer locks and some serious facial hair.

1970s
This look is essentially a lob with a middle parting (if you need a lob refresher, check out our hair gallery), plus a thick moustache and beard.

1980s
Think Wolf of Wall Street and you’ve pretty much got the picture of this slicked back style. We’re picturing pinstripe suits and gold watches.

1990s
Kurt Cobain has a lot to answer for – the 1990s is all about dishevelled long locks for thrashing out to grunge. 

2000s
Big Brother stars and professional footballers (including you, David Beckham) were working the side-sweep quiff throughout the metrosexual noughties.

2010s
Thought you’d escaped it? The man bun is THE look of the 2010s (click here for everything you need to know about the man bun) – we’re just thankful the shaved sides have been ditched for a full head of tied back hair.
