George Clooney and his hairstyles have been dubbed, The King Of Cool, This hunky, silver-haired gentleman has single handedly resurrected the genteel glamour that was old Hollywood.
Classy, impeccably groomed, and in possession of a charismatic charm we don’t often get to see.
"Sexiest Man Alive”
George Clooney has provided years of entertainment for movie-goers and TV watchers - and not just because of those Cary Grant good looks and J-Lo teamed tub scenes.
Years ago when this "Sexiest Man Alive” came on the scene, his thick, slightly wavy hair was worn longish to downright rocker, but somehow on him, it still looks tidy. Witness later episodes of "Facts of Life,” and any number of late ‘80’s guest starring appearances.
That rugged, boyish face looks amazing with any style, but most notably perhaps was the Caesar cut that he made famous, where hair is textured and cut to move forward to frame the face. And with each role, his hairstyle has changed a smidge or more.
As time goes by, this handsome devil has adopted slightly more classic ‘do’s, cropped close to the head.
His top and sides can be worn longer to move back from his face and add volume and fullness, and occasionally the front is left a bit longer to create a bit of face-framing fringe to draw attention to those expressive eyes and dashing smile.
The King of Cool
In "Ocean’s Eleven,” Clooney wears his hair quite short and slightly messy with mid-length sideburns. His style is casual cool, earning him the nickname, "The King of Cool.”
He’s further rocked his salt and pepper hair with an old Hollywood swagger and a side part with a smooth wave back from his forehead.
Occasionally, he’ll even flirt with a bit of facial hair that he trims and maintains with an old fashioned shaving brush and fancy foaming shave soap. So retro!
To work a short, textured cut like George Clooney’s, have hair cut short and shaped around the contours of the head, with just a bit of fullness through the crown and sides.
Trim sideburns to a medium length, but keep ‘em clean. When hair is damp, try a product like a shaping gel, or firm hold mousse and arrange hair, think casual.
To further play up texture, add a dollop of shine-injecting wax or pomade to dry strands.
Comfortably settled into his forties, this actor has the additional advantage of seeming to love his looks. He embraces the "character,” that has come to his face and the gray strands that have found their way onto his full head of hair.
That kind of self-confidence and comfort in his skin certainly doesn’t hurt his mass appeal to women and men alike. He’s also taken those stellar good looks behind that camera as well.
Score another one for the King of Cool!
