And we assume it might help casting directors view him in a different light, too.
But was this new look his choice or for a character? Turns out it was a bit of both. He told US show, Entertainment Tonight, that this new 70’s vibe was “equal parts laziness and equal parts something I may do in the future.”
However, he is apparently making his directorial debut in the forthcoming Poolman, in which he plays a dreamer who spends his day as a, yep, poolman.
Doesn’t take a genius – or, ahem, MFH – to see the connection between his more relaxed bonce, and his new role.
- If Chris Pine’s medium length hair with salt and pepper beard is the look you’re after, you’ll need to ensure the back of your hair is collar length.
- Chris has grown his shorter layers out at the front and sides, so it sits just below his cheekbones.
- For ease of styling and for volume, there are subtle layers throughout.
- Ensure your stylist doesn’t get too heavy-handed with the layering, or you’ll end up with a mullet.
- You can get your barber to give you regular beard trims, or do it yourself at home if you have a beard trimmer.
- Chris Pine’s medium length hair is in really good condition.
- After washing your hair, towel dry by gently squeezing out the excess water.
- Don’t rub it roughly with your towel or you’ll make it fluffy.
- Follow with a thickening lotion or volume mousse to create strength and body.
- Use a hairdryer on a medium setting to dry it. Use your fingers as you’re drying to to flip the ends of the hair up a little at the back like Chris’s hair.
- Volume tip: Blow dry it upside down if your hair tends to be really flat.
- Rub a little matt clay or pomade through your hands and ruffle it through the front on either side to give it a very subtle lift.
- Then ruffle it through the rest of your hair.
- To highlight the shine and make it look healthy, warm a couple of drops of hair oil between your fingers and run over the hair.
