For a many of guys, simple, a classic well-groomed hairstyles are the best option for everyday wear, just like this side part style. It's a look that incorporates both fun and formality, making it one of the most versatile looks around.

Well, it's what Don Draper would do, right?

Hairstyles which are short on the sides, but which keep a lot of length on top, are not so much a trend as a grooming staple for men. It's a very popular style, and as such, one that can be hard to put your own spin on. At the same time, it's all down to you to decide just how much volume and texture you create on top and in front.

To get the look, there are just a couple of really easy styling tricks you need to know about.

Step one: Begin by warming some grooming clay between your fingers and then working it through all of your hair, paying special attention to the roots.

Step two: Use a comb – ideally a tail comb – to define a side part and then comb the larger section over.

Step three: To add the all-important volume, use your fingers to scrunch and muss your hair at the roots. Then, use the comb to gently smooth over the top layer without crushing the lifted parts.

And you're done!

Top tip: Add extra volume to your hair with some volume mousse before styling and give it a quick blow-dry.

Now all you have to do is get out there and enjoy your new style that can be worn with anything from a tux to overalls. Like we said, it's a really versatile hairstyle!
