Dean Martin (Dino Martini) Classic Hairstyles

Dean Martin was one of the most famous Italian-Americans in this country's history. He was one of the original members of the famed "Rat Pack" along with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. Born in Steubenville, Ohio on June 17, 1917 with the name Dino Paul Crocetti, Martin adopted the stage name "Dino Martini" when singing with the Ernie Mckay Orchestra and later changed it legally to Dean Martin at the beginning of his film career. Martin was a star of stage and screen as well as a recording artist and television actor.

Being a celebrity in the 1940s and 1950s, Martin naturally wore his hair cut short. It was very uncommon at that time for a man to wear long hair. The cut was a relatively traditional one that could be parted on the side and combed over. Interestingly enough, this cut and style came to be known as a "Rat Pack" and was worn by Sinatra and Davis as well.

Martin did push the envelope a little with his hairstyle at the time, as he wore it a bit longer than most men would have been comfortable with in that time frame in the US. This particular style is now considered old fashioned, but it still looks good on most men.

Now I love Dean but he did wear hair pieces. I hope that doesn't rattle your cage too much. The problem with getting his look is that if you don't have thick d ark hair and plenty of it, you can't get it to look like that. dean had hair at the temples that never receded. Most men do not have that.
On Dean, the look is great, on we men in 2014, it would look really old fashioned. What is needed is an up dated style.
It won't be long before shaved heads and buzz cuts are out of style then maybe we can get a look similar to Deans for men to wear.
