Move over, fashy — the “fashion troll” is the hot men’s hair style of 2019.
Esquire is calling it now after Thom Browne’s Paris runway show on Saturday, in which the NYC-based menswear designer sent his models down the catwalk with swoopy, up-combed hairdos reminiscent of troll dolls.
The shellacked look — which likely requires medium-length hair, a good brush and a boatload of hairspray — really stands up…er, out.
“The fashion troll is the lid to give male grooming the shake-up it needs in 2019,” raves Esquire.
We’ll see. It’s a bit unusual but, unlike the long-on-top, short-on-the-sides fashy — short for fascist, named for its visual association with the Third Reich — at least it won’t get you mistaken for a neo-Nazi.
