MFH loves how the actor – who stars as Grover Underwood in new mythological series Percy Jackson and the Olympians on Disney+ – has teamed a medium-length chop with a fringe to give plenty of room for movement and texture. Well played, indeed.
FYI, curls can get a tad dry thanks to their shape (it’s tougher for moisturising sebum to move down the hair shaft), so prioritise nourishing products designed for your hair type.
A leave-in conditioner and wide-tooth comb, for example, can be your mane’s best mates for gently detangling any knots.
- Keen on Aryan Simhadri’s curly hairstyle? Look for a barber who specialises in curly cuts and also take a photo reference, so they can advise on the best approach for your curl pattern.
- The back of Aryan’s medium-length haircut falls to around collar length or slightly shorter, while the sides are long enough to tuck behind his ears.
- For this scissor cut, more length has been left on top – your barber may build in layers to create shape and balance out any bulk/weight.
- Aryan’s fringe sits around his browline. Start with a longer one if you’re unsure – you can always take it up a notch next time or have more trimmed after it’s styled.
- Your barber might cut your hair (especially your fringe) while it’s dry. How come? Well, wet curls appear longer and then spring back once dry, so this helps to make sure your chop doesn’t end up shorter than planned.
- Recreate Aryan Simhadri’s curly hairstyle by working a small amount of nourishing curl cream (around the size of a penny) into your hair after washing out your shampoo and conditioner.
- Gently towel dry your hair, then apply a small amount of pre-styler product like a heat-protecting mousse. Squeeze and twist your curls – again, gently – as you work it in.
- Blow drying? Choose a low-to-medium heat setting (to ward off frizz and heat damage) and use a diffuser attachment on the dryer. This helps to spread and control the air flow, so curls stay structured – ideal for ringlets like Aryan’s.
- If needed, warm a small amount of styling product between your hands (MFH likes a pomade for a glossy finish) and run it through your hair.
- Use your fingers to shape and direct the look you’re after, as well as add definition to your fringe. And you’re good to go!
