How To Get Ryan Reynolds Red Carpet-Worthy Hair
He's a red carpet regular and has been more than impressing us recently with what he's been wearing (like last week's Brunello Cucinelli get up which saw him sport a denim waistcoat). Well with that in mind, there's something else that Ryan Reynolds gets spot on and that is his hair style.
He has stuck to what he knows best for the best part of 20 years. While he isn't as experimental as say Zac Efron or Zayn Malik with his hair, he has proven that sometimes sticking to what you know is often the best thing to do. Over the course of his career he has largely kept the same style – a short style, which comes slightly shorter on the sides and features a more texture, longer top.
And if it works for Blake Lively, it works for us. With that in mind, we spoke to Carmelo Guastella, British GQ's barber of the year, to find out exactly how you can get the red carpet-worthy 'do.
What is the style?
"It's a straight forward low maintenance standard male hair cut. The sides sit at about 1cm in length and are shorter than the top, which is about 2cm-3cm in length."
What would you advise a man asks for?
"I would prefer doing this haircut with scissors and comb to create a bespoke finish, so ask for that. You need to make sure that the surrounding line around the ears and neck are well tapered avoiding strong lines, giving this hairstyle a softer finish. Remove the weight on top with cutting techniques to give some texture and also will make styling much easier and hair will last longer and grow out nicely."
How would you maintain the style?
"After washing, using both shampoo and then conditioner, predominantly towel dry, but use a hair dryer to quickly remote some excess water. Or if you are in no rush let it dry naturally then apply the styling product. Styling products in most cases work best on dry hair."
What products would you use?
"To style the best thing to use is paste. This gives the hair some texture as well as hydration. Apply the product all over and finally lift up the front to create a mini quiff."
