REEL As a militant fighter in The Book of Eli, Washington rocks a close-clipped cut with rugged facial stubble. His manly, tough-guy look is easy to maintain with a good beard trimmer (for the stubble) and, for the hair, prebooked salon trims every two weeks. For this look, it’s key to keep the scalp in good condition-that is, flake-free. Try American Crew Balancing Tea Tree Shampoo.
REAL Washington’s off-screen look is longer, but still neat. Keep curls in control with a moisturizing hair gel-this type tends to leave hair less stiff. Put a bit of gel in the palms of your hands, then run them through his hair. Try a curlenhancing product, such as Joico Curl Definer Cream Gel.
REEL Duhamel’s preppy, athletic-looking hair in the romantic comedy When In Rome is easy to achieve. First, blend a drop of leave-in conditioner with a little CHI Twisted Fabric Finish Paste. Run the mixture through damp hair, then finger-comb hair to the side while coaxing it into place with a blow-dryer.
REAL Recreate Duhamel’s awards-show do with a buzz cut that’s close at the sides and longer on top. Apply a strong-hold product such as Paul Mitchell Super Sculpt Glaze and let hair air-dry. Mist on a little hairspray for extra hold, then tousle and mess up the top.
REEL Hawke’s vampire character in Daybreakers has longish, textured, “dirty” hair. To get the look, work a dab of Regis DESIGNLINE Molding Glue Mess It Up Styler through towel-dried hair. Then blow-dry while moving the nozzle from side to side to create a wind-blown effect. Apply a touch more styler to bangs to create sideswept pieces.
REAL Hawke goes shorter and “cleaner” but still badboy. To achieve: Rake Redken Power Tame through damp hair, massaging with your fingers (as if lathering up with shampoo) to rumple the top. Then run palms over the sides of the hair to smooth it down.
