Creating the right look for the urban male who isn’t wearing a suit to work every day can be tricky. Here, Stuart Gavert and his team have created a contemporary style for the creative guy who probably doesn’t even own a tie.

"I used three different shades in a combination of foil highlights and baliage to get a modern, tasteful result."
—Stuart Gavert
