Not everyone who creates timeless art should be imitated. Yves Saint Laurent is an exception. The man himself, like the products he created, has a bold, confident style that works in all situations. Casual and elevated at the same time.
The look here is from 1971, perhaps his most iconic and rebellious year. That year he released what became known as “The Scandal Collection” and posed nude for Jeanloup Sieff and the cover of Vanity Fair.
It is a longer style and a week or two of beard length, groomed cleanly, to subtly show you he pays attention to the details. To get this look, buy oversized, bold-framed glasses and a well-fitted henley t-shirt and then tell your barber:
- It’s a mid-length haircut, just above the shoulders
- A natural look with layers and no hard shape
- Trim the beard to a #3, and clean up the edges and under the bottom lip
To keep it going at home:
- Shampoo, using Fellow Barber Complete Shampoo, every 2 or 3 days
- Style using Fellow Barber Styling Cream. Put a dime in your hand. Rub your hands together to prepare the product. And then run it through and crimp* it into your hair to make it look like you just woke up.
- Shave and clean your face with the Shave Regimen
