We can all agree that some of the best hairstyles for men come from our favorite celebrities as Bollywood has been influencing our style choices and grooming ethics for decades now.

Whenever an actor makes a stylish entrance with a perfect hairdo— be it wavy do, slicked-up, or even a funky undercut — it spawns a wave of lookalikes across the country. Of late, the film industry has given men some serious hair goals. Here are the best of them.

Hrithik Roshan in War

It’s safe to say that Hrithik has pulled off every hairstyle in the book and with serious panache. As soon as this movie poster was unveiled, every B-Town junkie including us believed that there couldn’t have been a better undercut.

Ranbir Kapoor in Tamasha

Just a couple of years ago, when the undercut was turning into a global sensation, Ranbir Kapoor sported one. The one detail we loved here is the way it blends and streamlines. Kapoor arrived on the scene to show us how it is done right.

Varun Dhawan in Street Dancer

While the poster doesn’t allow it to be prominent, Varun Dhawan actually got platinum highlights done for this movie, an conventional colour that worked well.

Kartik Aaryan in Luka Chuppi

There’s two ends of the men’s grooming spectrum — super-slick and bed-head. Kartik, of course, usually sticks to the latter and pulls it off. Overly thin hair can be difficult to style, which is why growing it out and giving it texture is better than going super short with an undercut.

Sidharth Malhotra in A Gentleman

Malhotra isn’t just here to give us a class in grooming but also in style. In ‘A Gentleman’, he shows us how to ace the mid-length pompadour look that could work with a sherwani as well as a tux.

Ayushmann Khurrana in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan

We can all agree that the undercut may just be one of the best hairstyles for men of all time. Khurrana has always been about breaking stereotypes, not just with his films but his hairdo as well. In his latest flick, he shows us how he has perfected the undercut, a look he has consistently evolved over time.
