On Sunday, Hollywood kicked off awards season with the Golden Globes, and although it’s usually all about the women and what they wore, it’s time we talk about the men. Most were impeccably dressed in your standard tuxes, and a handful of men even upped the ante on traditional formalwear, but let’s not forget about one other thing Hollywood’s leading men rocked: perfectly styled hair. From throwbacks to old school Hollywood to bold facial hair, we’re taking a look at some of the most standout looks from one of Hollywood’s biggest nights.
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the Best Actor winner for his performance in The Revenant. In addition to his killer on-screen performance, DiCaprio also rocked the red carpet. His hair was perfectly slicked back, and he had some heavy, neatly trimmed stubble.
The Star Wars: The Force Awakens star, and winner for his role in on HBO’s Show Me a Hero, turned Leo DiCaprio’s look up a couple of notches. Isaac, with naturally curly hair, rocked the slick back look in the best way he could, with a full facial beard to match. Let’s just say, this look was tailor made (and perfect) for Isaac.
Honorable mention: Channing Tatum
Are you now itching for your own old Hollywood ‘do? The Cheat Sheet spoke with AXE Hair celebrity Amy Komorowski, who’s worked her magic on the likes of A-Listers Eddie Redmayne and Ryan Reynolds. She was behind-the-scenes on Sunday and shared how you get the most coveted look of the night: the old school Hollywood throwback, reminiscent of icons such as Cary Grant and Gregory Peck, a look that includes shiny, slicked back hair and side parts.
The old school Hollywood throwback includes three essentials: Shine, slicked back hair, and a side part. To equip yourself, you’re going to use a product with high shine and hold, like AXE Clean Cut Look: Classic Pomade or AXE Smooth Look: Shine Pomade.
- Start off by applying either pomade to damp or dry hair. “Start where the product is needed most in the front and sides and make sure to run the rest through the entire head of hair,” says Komorowski.
- Next, use a comb to create a clean side part starting at the front of your head. If you’re looking for more volume on top, simply lift the comb up at the roots and back.
- Finish off by running your fingers through your hair to create a little bit of separation to ensure it doesn’t look too plastered.
