The Perfect Summer Cut
Esquire talks with a handful of Hollywood hairstylists and groomers to get the intel on how to get the perfect warm weather hairstyle. They also cover the products to look for and what you need to say to your barber to achieve the look you're going for. Here are just a few:
The hairstylist for this very photo explains how to achieve Leonardo Dicaprio's signature style. "On his wet hair, I applied Oribe Gel Serum and then combed it through into a side part." Gel Serum won't result in the usual stiff helmet head ... Instead, once it's dry, your hair will loosen up, leaving enough hold to give it an orderly-yet-relaxed finish.
Go modern with a round cut like Michael Ealy. "This one's about a half an inch longer on top than on the sides. If it starts looking too bushy it'll be pretty obvious you need a trim."
Ryan Gosling sports one of the easiest styles to emulate for any face or hair type. "Ask for something very high and tight on the side, then about an inch longer on top. Add a severe part, which you'll maintain by towel-drying, then using matte pomade with a comb."
