During awards season, Hollywood’s leading ladies often steal the spotlight when it comes to fashion and beauty. Today let’s take a moment to shed light on the leading men who’ve brought their “A” game to the red carpet!
We’ve teamed up with Boardroom Salon for Men for a very special feature – they are focused on keeping a pulse on the latest celebrity trends after all. We tuned into The Oscar’s last night and peeped the bold fashion choices and on-point hairstyles. Below are a few of our favorite looks with tips from the experts at Boardroom on how to take them from the red carpet to the real world!
Ditch The Traditional Black Tux Coat
Why does it often seem like women are the only ones with options when it comes to clothes?
This year, the men at The Oscars proved that they have variety, too. White and navy blue coats seemed to replace the traditional black tux jacket. This can be a great way to add something exciting to your outfit without being too loud or unconventional. Try velvet like Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock and rock it with style.
Fluff It In The Front
Actors, such as Jeremy Renner, added some style to their hair by fluffing it just in the front. Many times, men with short hair don’t have a lot of styling options. This is the perfect hairstyle to keep in mind if you are looking for something fun, yet polished.
Take a comb (your hand works well, too!) with a bit of gel, and comb your hair forward (but make sure it doesn’t look pasted to your head). Then, take the comb and fluff the front pieces up.
Embrace The Side Part
The key to a successful side part is to determine where or what side your hair naturally falls, as that is the best way to part it. Then, use a comb to make sure the part is straight. It won’t look polished if it’s crooked!
With this look, you have options. You can part your hair and leave as is, or you can do as Captain America (aka Chris Evans) did and use some gel to slick it back. This classic look is something easy to do to take your look from day to night. You will feel like a silver screen star!
Add Unexpected Accessories
Again, it is a common misconception that women are the only ones who can have fun with accessories. After all, Hollywood actresses get to pick from countless diamonds, purses and shoes. However, the men of Hollywood brought their best accessories to the red carpet this year as well.
If you want to instantly add a pop, try an interesting pin, pocket square or tie like Mahershala Ali. Take it to the next level with a loud pair of shoes.
Shave The Sides
A way to modernize your hairstyle is to shave the sides while leaving some hair on top. Justin Timberlake showed off how chic this hairstyle can look. If you are looking for a change, try this cut next time you go to the barber. It will instantly make you feel more stylish! Bonus points – this style is just as quick and easy to perfect when styling at home.
Pull Back Messy Hair
Just because you are going to a black tie event, doesn’t mean you need to cut your hair. Casey Affleck exemplifies that. By simply pulling his hair back in a ponytail, he cleaned up for his big night without losing his edge.
Red carpet glam doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Try any of these tips for an instant update to your look!
