    by Zheelana Cottam


    You probably know Ezra Koenig as the guitarist and lead singer for indie-rock band Vampire Weekend creating hit songs such as Oxford Comma (2008), A-Punk (2008) and 2021 (2019).  The American artist’s music is an extravagant blend of rock, ska, afro-pop, and it only gets more experimental with each passing year. However, the talent doesn’t stop there. He is also the creator of the adult animated Netflix series Neo Yokio (2017) which starred celebrities like Jaden Smith, Jude Law and Susan Sarandon! Koenig also hosts radio talk show Time Crisis which aired its seventh season this year.

    Now that’s one busy, busy fella.

    However, Koenig’s diligent fans aren’t only obsessed with him for his multi-talented endeavours and delightful personality but because of his unique sense of style and endearing fluffy hairstyle. Below we have given you a breakdown of how to recreate the signature Ezra Koenig haircut. This hairstyle is great for you fellas with thick hair, textured hair, and curly hair.

    To create this Ezra Koenig haircut, you’re going to have to start with medium to long length hair. We suggest about 2 months of growth to get enough hair to make this cut. Now head to your barber and ask them to cut the back and sides with #2 at the base of the neck and move up into a #3 from the temple up until the hairline. For the top leave the hair roughly 6-8 inches long and taper it off towards the back so it gradually blends together. To neaten everything up, go around and blend together the hair so the ends all look smooth.

    • To style the Ezra Koenig haircut, start with clean towel dried hair. Now, you will need some of our natural hair wax to use as a pre-styler. Use a pea-sized amount of our NO GUNK Styling Funk and warm the product up well between your fingers. Apply it throughout the hair from root to tip starting at the back of your hair and moving forward. This will give your hair some texture and keep the integrity of your curls.
    • If there is any left-over product on your hands use it as a beard balm and massage it in to give it some moisture and nutrients.
    • Next create your side parting using a comb. Your fringe should fall down over your forehead. Then grab your hair dryer and put it on a medium heat. Blow dry your hair front to back using our fingers to muss up the front of your hair and push it upwards. This will create volume to your hair and give it that Ezra Koenig look.
    • Finally, spritz your hair with some of our organic Argan Oil spray, This will help nourish, condition and revitalize your hair. This step will give your hair that soft and bouncy look that the Vampire Weekend singer is known for.
