Though "White Collar" small screen star Matt Bomer is already well known in GQ and fashion circles as one of the best-dressed men in television and much admired for his near-perfect coif, America is about to get to know him even better in the much-anticipated movie "Magic Mike," in which he co-stars with Channing Tatum as a male stripper. If your male clients aren't already lusting after Matt's classic, Rat Pack style, expect a rush of interest after the flick hits theaters this weekend.

With summer in full swing and some men looking for a less dramatic alternative to shedding their longer styles for some buzzed relief from the heat, Matt's swept back, timeless style may be just the inspiration your clients need to stay cool without flirting too much with your clippers. Check out a few of Matt's variations on his now-nearly-famous "Bomer" style, as well as these other helpful tips for styling your male clients during a heat wave.
