The Oscars are this Sunday, and I don’t know about you, but I have been positively, absolutely salivating from the anticipation of finally finding out — no, not which film will win “Best Picture” — how Jared Leto will style his gorgeous head of cascading ombre man locks for the occasion. Having seen those strands in person, having touched them however briefly, I can confirm that his hair is as great as photos suggest. It’s glossy and has the perfect copper-y ends, but is also limp in that way that only man hair can be limp and sexy. SO ANNOYING. Basically, it’s perfect, down or up, though you know I ride hard for man buns.
Which is why I am positively verklempt to read what his ombre expert (duh, of course he has one) has planned for Academy Awards night. Given that Jared is practically a lock to take home the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role in “Dallas Buyers Club,” the man formerly-but-forever-known-as Jordan Catalano has got to look like a winner. Chase Kusero told fashion and beauty blog Into The Gloss:
“When I see him, we’ll play with his hair for some photos—maybe a high bun, maybe half up, half down—and then go from there. That’s how we got to the pony-bun for the Globes. The big thing on my shoulders right now is if the hair is gonna be up or down—I’m voting up, because we’ve only done it maybe once before. I want to do something with a side part this time, something cleaner. And I want to try to get a bun that’s nice and small, more like a traditional knot. The only thing I can say is that right now I’m all about the ‘wet look.’”
Oh weird, suddenly so am I. In my pants. Okay, that was too much, sorry. P.S. I would totally buy this Into The Gloss’s drawing of Jared (above) and hang it on my wall. ART. [Into The Gloss]
