Career determines a person's hairstyle
A person's choice of hairstyle depends on their career, according to a survey.
Brylcreem found that Mullets were a popular hairstyle for those whose professions mean they are not seen by the public much; including long distance lorry drivers, taxi drivers and even DJs.
Blokes with cropped hair were far more likely to be employed in manual jobs than those with long hair, with 45% of builders having short-cropped hairstyles.
Entrepreneurs had the most individual hair styles often following no set trend, with Richard Branson sporting longer hair, Bill Gates sports a traditional short side parted style, whilst Donald Trump has a complex flicked style.
Lino Carbosiero, Brylcreem Style Director said: "The survey results are pretty remarkable as they show that hair rather than clothes provide a more accurate indication of a modern British bloke's lifestyle, job and career prospects.
"It's interesting because we like to think we're all individuals, and that our hair and clothing is a result of personal preferences, when in fact it seems that we all are very influenced by our workplace and co-workers - although I'm sure many of us won't like to admit that!"
