Who says it’s only the women that get noticed at the Oscars? But can you really name the designer of the mens’ tuxes? Nooo. But everyone remembers how suave they looked. For your tonsorial pleasure, the Boardroom Salon presents Live From the Red Carpet: Academy Awards Hairstyles for Men
A CLASSIC LOOK NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE - LEONARDO DICAPRIO
Try a slicked back style for a more formal look. Slicking your hair straight back without a part is a good look, but it can feel a little intense for some guys. A side part can soften things up a bit. Lightly back-combing the front of your hair before you slick it back can give you some height in the front. A blow dryer and brush also helps.
Simply spread a dime-sized dab or two of product onto your palms and work through your hair with your fingers to create your desired style. Semisumo holds your hair in place and leaves a natural, polished finish while softening and giving body and fullness to the hair without overworking or drying. Try Bumble and bumble’s Semisumo, $29.00
EMBRACE THE BEARD - CHRIS EVANS
Facial hair can add definition to a soft face or ruggedness to a more youthful one. For the professional man, a neat, well-maintained beard looks outstanding. Achieve this look by shaving their necks to just under their jaw line, shaving the top of their beard along the cheek for sharp, defined lines and using clippers, trimmers or scissor to maintain a uniform length to the body of the beard. Use beard wash to remove oils, then finish with a beard softener or oil to combat frizz and lock in moisture.
Try Beardbrand’s Beard Oil, $25.00.
MODERN DAY COMB-OVER - JACOB TREMBLAY
Don’t be fooled. A comb over doesn’t have to be boring and isn’t strictly for the balding. A Comb over consists of longer hair on the top of the head, which is combed over into a side part or slicked back, depending on your preference. Create a part or comb your hair to one side for a defined, sharp style. Form the part from back to front, starting at your natural cowlick and combing everything to one side. Sculpt your look or add texture for an undone look with crème or paste and a comb. Try Bumble and bumble’s Sumotech, $29.00
PERFECT YOUR FACIAL HAIR MICHAEL B. JORDAN
For a classic, dapper look, use a mustache wax to keep stray hairs in place. Keep it simple; position the hair downwards. If you’ve grown out your mustache, twist the ends and twirl upward for a classic, dapper look.
To use: Scrape off a bit of wax with your thumbnail and warm between fingers (It's also easier if you keep it warm in your pants pocket). Once the wax has been warmed, apply it to mustache and style as desired. Try Beardbrand’s Mustache Wax, $7.00 – available in 4 scents
