Get the Look: Four Top Men's Styles

Vaughn Acord, a highly sought-after men’s stylist and founder of V76 by Vaughn, made a decision to use real men as models in his latest collection in order to create looks that are accessible to both clients and stylists. “In both of my campaigns we decided not go with models, and instead, went with real men who are also handsome and aspirational,” says Acord, who has featured a wood worker, a surfer/mixed media artist, a glass designer and a motorcycle mechanic—men who work hard and play hard and need a hairstyle that’s easy to manage. “Even when you’re putting in effort, there should be a relaxed nature to the look,” says Acord. “It’s all about authenticity.”
