    Brad Pitt has been one of Hollywood’s style icons since the 1990’s and it’s easy to see why. The World War Z star has rocked everything from a buzzcut to a pompadour (no, seriously a pompadour) and made it look good. Currently he is rocking his signature long hair which put his fans in a flurry when he styled it in a casual messy bun to present at the 2021 Oscars. It’s the perfect look for you Funky Fellas that grew out that long hair during last year’s pandemic and are looking for something to do with it. 

    Don’t worry if long locks aren’t your cup of tea - we will also be covering his infamous hair from Inglorious Basterds for you shorter haired Fellas too!

    It’s time to book a trip to the barbers and ask them to neaten up your long hair. Ask for a shoulder length cut for the back and sides. The wisps of hair at the front must be kept a generous three inches or so to frame the face, which can be easily tucked away behind your ears (see picture above). 

    • Brad’s hair is naturally straight but don’t let that discourage you Fellas with curls. Whip out those straighteners and get to work. To help keep the frizz away, spray our Organic Argan Oil from root to tip for soft, smooth hair. 
    • Next create a side parting and loosely tie back your hair into a free flowing man bun that grazes the neck. Your new wisps should fall forward naturally. 
    • To complete this style and keep everything in place, use a small amount of our Matte Lava Clay in your hands – make sure to really warm the product up - and apply to the front and sides of your hair from root to tip. 

     

    Second hairstyle: Short to Medium Length Hair

    Inglorious Basterds is iconic and so is the Lt. Aldo Raine haircut that Pitt pulls off effortlessly. To create this military inspired look, ask your barber to leave the top of your hair at a medium length, around three inches, with a hard part. The sides and back are kept short, tapered and blended from a #1 to #2.  Show the picture above for reference to help.

    If you’re looking for more of a modern style, ditch the fade and ask your barber to cut the sides into a clean undercut, which will look more like Brad Pitt’s hairstyle from Fury (below), with the sides retained, of course.

    • To keep this statement haircut in place, pre-style your hair with some of our Styling Funk as soon as you hop out of the shower. 
    • Finish the style with our Matte Lava Clay. Apply on the front and sides on towel dry hair from root to tip for a strong hold. A little of this product goes a long way.
    •  Comb your hair high and over to the side in a combover for extra volume. The end result should be a slicked look with a finishing shine.

    Now you Fellas can enjoy looking like the most dashing man in Hollywood, and who knows, you might win an Oscar for it too!
