All Hairstyles

Why We Love It:

Known for being an early adopter of the 70s shag/mullet look many years ago, Serge Pizzorno’s hair in this textured, spiky cut with blunt fringe is still a standout style. But it’s a little more attainable.

The Kasabian singer has form with statement hair – when he released a solo album in 2019, he debuted a French crop with leopard print spots (check it out in this interview in The Sun).

While not everyone can carry it off, Serge has long been a fan of a short, thick, straight fringe – and why not? It suits his offbeat style and makes him instantly recognisable.

Whether he’s shredding a guitar solo or grabbing a coffee, his hair is always going to get him noticed. And that’s what you want when you’re a rock star, right?

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Using a comb and scissors, your stylist will start cutting the sides and back.
  • Serge Pizzorno’s hair isn’t super short on the sides, so you’re aiming for a medium length—think about 2-3 inches.
  • Your hairdresser will use point-cutting or razor-cutting techniques to create that jagged, textured look Serge has.
  • Discuss the length you’d like your fringe before your hairdresser chops into it!
  • Serge’s fringe is quite short, sitting around an inch above his eyebrows.
  • Once the fringe has been cut bluntly across, your hairdresser will subtly cut a little texture into it, to soften the edges a little.
  • Next, they may use thinning shears or a razor to go through the hair again, to remove any bulk and add to the texture if necessary.

Get The Look

  • Spray a generous amount of texturising spray or apply a golf ball-sized amount of mousse to damp hair for volume and grit.
  • Use your fingers to distribute the product evenly from roots to ends.
  • If you want extra volume as per Serge Pizzorno’s hair, blow-dry your hair while lifting it at the roots with your fingers.
  • Brush the fringe down with a vent brush as you aim the hairdryer down towards it.
  • Take a small amount of matte paste or texturising cream (about the size of a pea) and rub it between your palms to warm it up.
  • Work the product through your hair, focusing on the top section where you want the spikes.
  • Use your fingers to lift and separate sections, creating that messy, spiky look.
  • You can also pinch small sections of hair and twist or separate them to create a more textured, lived-in look.
  • Use a little of the leftover product on your hand to smooth the fringe down.
  • For extra definition and texture, use a small amount of styling wax or clay.
  • If you need extra hold, lightly mist your hair with a flexible hold hairspray. This helps keep the spikes in place without making your hair stiff.
  • And you’re ready to rock…
