You probably know Mena Massoud’s face very well by now. Star of this year’s live action remake of Aladdin, it’s hard to miss him this summer, whether that be his cheeky smile, or his on-screen chemistry with Naomi Scott who plays Princess Jasmin. One thing he’s consistently brought to the table though, both on-and-off set, is his stylish hair.
The man is a magician. Most of us Funky Fellas would settle for just one hairstyle that suits us, till we get bored and switch it up. Mena Massoud cycles through 8 a week it would seem!
Let’s have a look at the haircut behind the hairstyle first, then we’ll focus on 2 ways you can style it à la Mena Massoud.
Mena’s hair is a simple mid-length disconnected undercut. All you need to do is ask your barber for very short or shaved sides and longer hair on top to create the stark contrast that makes this hairstyle so awesome. In addition to these instructions, you can show your barber the picture below – he’ll know what to do.
PRO TIP: One customisation you can discuss with your barber is, depending on your head shape, how much you’d like to blend the shorter sides as you get to the top.

Mena’s hair is naturally curly. That means that if you have naturally curly hair like his, you’ll need to invest some time in straightening your hair first, before you can achieve this look. If you’re born with naturally straight hair, you can skip this part.
To get this style you’ll need the help of a hair dryer and a hair brush.
Styling wise, it’s pretty similar to the above routine with a few tweaks. Think of it like styling a side part, except you’re going to use some of that length to create the curtains.
