For the rest of us, we have GQ to thank for visiting barbershops throughout America to identify the number one requested hairstyle. You might be thinking that the man bun may have taken control of the world, but their findings point to a haircut that’s damn near the opposite.


Yes, we love Ryan Reynolds too. He’s one of the most iconic figures in men’s style (and he has a pretty gorgeous wife in Blake Lively, giving more credence to men taking style notes from him). But the reason we nabbed this photo from GQ is because he sporting the top hairstyle for men across the country. You might see a little more aggressive variations of this look in Downtown Seattle, like a closer fade or a side part, but you get the gist. Its clean, its professional, its classy.
