Charlie Heaton: Tousled Textured Mop Top Hairstyle

3.0 3 Star

Known for his unruly barnet, Charlie Heaton’s textured tousled mop top hairstyle, which he rocked at the Cannes Film Festival, is a new style for the Stranger Things actor.

MFH likes this slightly softer look on him.

MFH says

He might have an unflattering shag/mullet (shullet?) hairstyle on Stranger Things, but IRL Charlie Heaton’s textured tousled mop top hairstyle is, ahem, a cut above.
It’s got real ‘indie muso’ vibes, which, given Charlie’s former career as a drummer in noise-rock Comanechi and psychedelic band Half-Loon, is fairly appropriate vibe to have, no?
While MFH couldn’t find out much about his hair or grooming regime, but he did spill to GQ in a video interview about his favourite scents.
His go to? “Prada Milano – I’ve been wearing it since I was about 18. It’s very clean and talc-y. My sister’s boyfriend had it and I used to steal it – this was when I had no money,” he admitted.

“And when I got one of my first paychecks, this was one of the first things I bought.”

His other must-have is Le Labo Santal, something he said “I’ve just been introduced to”.

  • Charlie Heaton’s textured tousled mop top hairstyle is medium length on top, cut above the ears and tapered into a short cut at the back.
  • There’s also a lot of texture to play with, thanks to the layering on top of the head.
  • The fringe is left long enough to hit just below his brows.
  • But if you want something more practical, you could ask for it to be a bit less blunt, and a more choppier, textured look that is less likely to get in your eyes.
  • NB: never try and cut your fringe yourself at home when it gets too long. Your hairdresser will trim it for free.
  • Charlie Heaton’s textured tousled mop top hairstyle is stopped from looking too like a bowl-cut because of the bed head tousle.
  • Try not to wash your hair too much – this style looks best on 2nd or even 3rd day hair.
  • Spritz damp hair thoroughly with sea salt spray for ANFORH’s Texture Volume Spray.
  • Blow dry it with a hairdryer on medium heat, while tousling it with your fingers.
  • When it’s dry, take warm a small amount of some  wax, clay or pomade between your fingers and then go through, scrunching the hair and pulling pieces out to ramp up the texture.
  • Finish off with some hairspray.
  • Use dry shampoo or a styling powder between washes to give it a gritty texture and make it easier to tousle.
