I think most people will admit that they’ve sometimes let their hair get unruly. I once went five years without cutting my hair, which in turn made my whole appearance suffer because I wasn’t taking care of my locks.

Anyone who has gotten a fresh haircut knows that feeling of pure joy when the stylist turns you around in the chair to reveal the new you. Sometimes, even just a trim can make a world of difference.

It’s not just women who appreciate a great cut. Men can also benefit from a well-executed makeover. Whether it’s chopping off shoulder-length hair or styling a short ‘do, a good haircut can shed years off your appearance without the use of plastic surgery or expensive creams.

To prove it, scroll through to see 12 men who have gone from drab to dapper with just a haircut.
