George Peppard’s classic hair in Breakfast at Tiffany’s
George Peppard was an American actor whose role as Paul Varjak in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s made him a popular name and actor (he co-starred alongside Audrey Hepburn). In Breakfast At Tiffany’s, George Peppard’s hairstyle is a classic side swept hairstyle with some angle (i.e. not completely perpendicular with the parted line). This type of mens hairstyle is what I like to call an angular side swept hairstyle, and it’s very similar to the Gatsby hairstyle, only that the angular side swept tends to be styled with shorter hair compared to the Gatsby hairstyle.
The side swept as well as the slicked back hairstyle were very popular hair styles in the ’50s and ’60s (Breakfast At Tiffany’s was released in 1961). George Peppard with his side slicked hair as Paul Varjak was yet-another Hollywood actor to style his hair with sheen and pomade. I myself even consider the 1950s as the golden era of the pomade hairstyles!
So check the side swept of Mr. Peppard in this movie and get some classic hair inspiration for your side swept. Even in one of the movie scenes, Paul Varjak’s hair is slicked back as he stands under the rain, so it doesn’t get any more classic with regards to mens hair than this, folks!
