When it comes to hairstyles, Oasis’ relatively crazier half, has rocked different types including buzzcuts. However, it’s the singer’s mod haircut and its different variations that play a major part in his iconic look and if you’re wondering how to get that, we’ll show you how.
Liam Gallagher Haircut
Here’s a selection of his most popular haircuts for you to choose from. Of course, don’t forget to go for a haircut that enhances your natural features and head shape.
Liam Gallagher Hairstyle
The Mancunian singer is one of the most famous representatives of Britpop hair along with the other half of Oasis, Damon Albarn and plenty more. Echoing mod fashion, Britpop left its mark in history in music just as much as it did in style. However, Liam’s hair repertoire isn’t limited to that. Let’s have a look at the different haircuts he sported during the years.
A shaved head is without a doubt the easiest haircut to achieve. Although you could potentially go DIY about this one, but we do recommend you go to your barber of choice. Follow Liam’s example and go for a clean shaven look or opt for a shaved head with beard combination.
Just because there’s considerably less hair to work with, it doesn’t mean that you should overlook the way you maintain your freshly shaved mane. Keep your scalp hydrated with a quality conditioner and invest in pre and post-shave oils to do the same with your face skin.
Long Page Boy Hairstyle
In theory, this is quite an old-fashioned and preppy hairstyle. However, Liam put his own rock n roll spin on it and turned it into a shaggy, dishevelled look. What we have here is essentially a grown out bob with a short fringe. You can even throw a touch of Mick Jagger in the mix and go for a fuller fringe. This haircut is definitely better suited to oblong or oval faces as the face length will work better with a fringe.
In this case, hair pomade is perfect to give your hair that extra strength and boost to the top part of the hairstyle. You’ll also need to do a bit of work with your blowdryer to get the ends of your hair to contour your face in the best way possible.
Liam Gallagher has been sporting this hairstyle since 1994 and it has evolved through the decades. Shaggy hairstyles for thick hair are a great combination as your hair is strong enough to substantiate the cut. If your hair is too thick or voluminous, it’s best to go with some feathering as it will take out the unnecessary weight.
For an effortlessly dishevelled look, you pretty much have the freedom to let your hair do as it pleases. However, using some hair wax will help you maintain that messy look throughout the day.
This is possibly the most iconic out of his different hairstyles. In this Liam Gallagher 2005 haircut, we have an almost Caesar-like fringe, long sideburns and a short and light feathering at the top.
As usual, you’ll need some hair product such as styling gel or pomade to add some definition to the ends of your fringe as well as the feathered top. Just in case your face shape falls in the rounder end of the spectrum, you might want to steer away from fringes as your face will look shorter and even more circular.
How to Get Liam Gallagher’s Hair
- Choose according to your face shape. Go for a long page boy haircut if you have a rectangular face for example.
- Have a bit of a stubble if you’re going for a shaved head and want to add some proportion to your features.
- You can’t go wrong with a Mod haircut. Keep your fringe short and feathering high.
