Chase Stokes: Medium-Length 90s Curtain Hairstyle

Retro charm meets contemporary cool? Yup, that pretty much describes Chase Stokes’ hair in this 90s inspired hairdo.

Seen on everyone from Brad Pitt to Jared Leto and, of course, David Beckham back in the day, the resurgence of this retro style clearly isn’t going to stop any time soon.

Why We Love It:

The 30-year-old Outer Banks actor Chase Stokes proves the resurgence of the medium-length90s classic curtain haircut isn’t just a trend; it’s a full-on revival.

And it’s not going anywhere soon.

MFH reckons its popularity stems from its ability to make any guy look like he just stepped off the set of a rom-com—smooth, debonair, and ready for a close-up.

Or, as MHF likes to call it: Romantic Lead Hair.

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Chase has length at the back – his hair hits his collar.
  • His hair at the top and sides has been cut into textured layers that end just below his ears.
  • These layers/texture mean the hair falls nicely around the face, and can also be tousled with product.
  • Chase hasn’t opted for a harsh centre parting – in fact, it’s a tousled zig-zag style parting which was another popular 90s/early Noughties trend.

Get The Look

  • Apply a lightweight mousse to the roots and ends of damp hair for a little volume.
  • Spritz on a heat protector, part your hair in the centre with a comb, then blow dry the hair.
  • Ruffle the hair with your fingers as you dry it, to mess the parting up so it’s more tousled, and to give the hair some movement.
  • Use your fingers to subtly flip the ends of the hair up at the bottom like Chase has.
  • Warm up a very tiny amount of wet-look pomade/wax/clay, between your hands and go through the hair, shaping the fringe area and tousling it to give it a piece-y look like Chase has.
  • Add a little more product if necessary – build it up gradually to get the look you want.
  • Discover how to style your barnet like Chase Stokes’ hair: his medium-length, 90s curtain haircut is a classic that just keeps on coming back.
