Including: * manly grooming tips * a breakdown of barnets to try out, such as the Curtain Cut (try to look like Johnny Depp; try not to look like Worzel Gummidge) or the Quiff (try to look like Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys; try not to look like Nick Grimshaw) * a perambulation through hirsute history * a rundown of famous hair aficionados, from Albert Einstein to Paul McCartny via Adolf Hitler * hair and hairstyling records (can you beat the Longest Time Hanging by your Hair record?) * the most ridiculous names for hair salons (Crops and Bobbers vs Shear-N-Dipity) The perfect gift for every man: from the metrosexual to those who just want to progress from their mum's bowl cuts; whether he wants to learn how to carefully calm his cowlick or skillfully shine his skinhead.
