Many men take their hair styling cues from British actor Sam Claflin and match their dandy wardrobe with the matching cool hairstyle. Sam Claflin wears one of the coolest haircuts for men in their 30s, opting for a layer cut with dark streaks and a casually tousled finish. Designer stubble, suit and tie complete the casual but polished look. We explain how you can make this style work for you.

For many years, retro styling from Don Draper and the crew of the US series 'Mad Men' influenced modern hairstyle trends with side-partings and 1960s hairstyles. Now, when it comes to hairstyles for men over 30, there is a new favorite: the layered and slightly tousled look made popular by Sam Claflin. In combination with the right outfit, this new hairstyle has plenty of appeal and charm in a dandy package.

Feel Cool and Dandy Wearing Your Hair like Sam Claflin

Sam Claflin’s hairstyle adds youthful flair to any look, and has fast become one of the most popular hairstyles for men in their 30s. Better yet, fine or thin hair and a widow’s peak are quite compatible with this hairstyle. It is particularly suitable as a hairstyle for curly hair because curls or waves add bounce and volume to this casual look. Light streaks and designer stubble complete the cool but dandy style.


The layered haircut makes it easier to create the tousled look. The finish may be shiny or matte. Defining a few strands of hair using wax or gel increases the charm of this hairstyle.

For men in their 30s, certain hairstyles make the dandy image complete. However, it takes more than the right haircut to look like a dandy. The typical dandy is diligently dressed with noticeable style and a penchant for the exceptional. Almost all dandies own a narrowly cut sports jacket and a well-cut suit in a neutral color. Designer jeans also belong in a dandy’s wardrobe. This basic wardrobe gains its dandy character through the addition of fashionable ties, silk scarfs and bow ties. The shoes in the latest style must be polished to a dazzling shine. Dandies are known for wearing clothing made from fine materials like silk, velvet, and cashmere.
