The Abbott Elementary actor (he plays history teacher Jacob) puts his grooming trust in hairstylist Dustin Von Osborne, who actually works on the hit mockumentary show. His go-to product brand for this Golden Globes look? Unite Hair.
With a short chop like this, you can play around with length on the back and sides. Go for a fade like Chris; try a classic taper or clipped style à la Anthony Keyvan and model Shae Pulver; or even opt for a soft scissor cut in the style of Adam Brody.
Sidenote: curls can become dry thanks to their shape, so prioritise moisturising products designed for your hair type.
- Want in on Chris Perfetti’s short curly haircut with a fade? Look for a barber skilled in cutting curly hair in particular, so they can work out the best approach for your curl pattern.
- Chris has a short back and sides with a low fade, where the transition starts just above his ears.
- Ask your barber to leave more length on top of your head to showcase your natural curls and texture.
- Chris also sports a light short boxed beard, characterised by its neat trim and close crop.
- Short haircuts and fades can need regular barber visits to stay fresh, so consider a trim every few weeks or so.
- The secret to Chris Perfetti’s hairstyle is treating your curls to plenty of TLC.
- After rinsing out your shampoo and conditioner, rub a penny-sized-amount of nourishing curl cream or leave-in conditioner between your palms and work it through your hair.
- When it comes to styling, it’s worth experimenting to see what works best for your texture.
- You could work a small amount of lightweight mousse or sea salt spray into gently-towel-dried hair. Squeeze and twist your curls – again, gently – as you go.
- Blow drying? Use a low-to-medium heat setting and a diffuser attachment on the dryer – the latter helps to spread out the air flow so your curls stay structured.
- Finish shaping your look with your fingers and tease a curl down over your forehead, as Chris has done.
