Best Men's Hair Looks from the Billboard Music Awards 2023

Published 22nd Nov 2023 by Josie Jackson
November saw the return of the Billboard Music Awards 2023 and there were some fantastic hair looks showcased on the night. Below, award-winning men's hairdresser Jim Shaw shares his favourite looks from some of the male stars that attended the event...

Peso Pluma

Peso Pluma gave off a cool, laidback vibe at the Billboard Music Awards 2023. He wore his longer length mullet haircut effortlessly, completing his look with a snapback hat. Natural hairstyles and longer length edgy cuts like the mullet will continue to be a big trend as we go into 2024 for men and are perfect for those who are looking for an incredibly low maintenance style that requires little to no styling. I love to scrunch a mousse or sea salt spray into this cut to enhance the natural hair texture and give it a further easy-going finish.

Mark Ronson

Although he wasn’t in attendance at the Billboard Music Awards 2023, Mark Ronson won Top Soundtrack with Barbie: The Album and during his video award speech, his hair immediately caught my eye. It was worn with a deep side parting and slicked over for a super sophisticated and controlled look that’s very youthful and contemporary. This can be achieved with a pomade or wax either with a matt finish or shine, depending on if you would like to achieve a more natural or polished look. This style looks great on all hair lengths but particularly slightly longer lengths like Mark’s to give the hair added volume and height. This again is another great hair look for those struggling with a receding hair line/hair thinning, as it gives their hair a fuller appearance. It’s also great for showing off facial features and giving the face a more chiseled appearance.

Real Stray Kids

The K-pop group looked iconic at the Billboard Music Awards 2023. To complement their luxe outfits, they wore their hair styled straight, smooth and sleek. These longer length, smooth styles will be super on trend as we head into the festive party season and as we go into 2024. Whether you blow-dry the hair smooth or use heated styling irons to create this look, ensure you finish with a serum or oil for added smoothness and shine with no flyaways.

Many of the band also have fringes, which will be another prominent trend this winter – from full fringes to curtain fringes. For those with oblong faces, a fringe is a great way to create the illusion of a shorter face shape. For those with square face shapes, they will want to avoid anything that overly softens and shortens their features and instead, they should opt for a well-balanced fringe like a side fringe that will flatter their features.
