James Van Der Beek: Wavy Medium Length 90s Heartthrob Hairstyle

3.0 3 Star

James Van Der Beek’s wavy, medium length hairstyle from his Dawson’s Creek years is as quintessentially 90s as they come.

MFH says

James Van Der Beek’s hairstyle in Dawson’s Creek is a 90s throwback that still looks as good today as it did in its hey day. It’s casual, well-conditioned and very versatile.

In this press shot, James wears his hair with a textured, healthy finish which you can get with a touch of pomade. We love how this looks with his naturally wavy hair and if you’ve got the hair texture for it, it can be a pretty easy look to style and maintain.

For guys without James’ volume, reach for thickening shampoos or even salt spray to add density to your hair if you’re on the thin side.
