Cristo Fernández: Long Wavy Hairstyle

4.0 4 Star

Ted Lasso actor Cristo Fernández (he plays Dani Rojas) strikes grooming gold with his lustrous long haircut.

MFH says

Between its versatility and glorious volume, Ted Lasso star Cristo Fernández’s long wavy hairstyle is a strong contender for mane of the match.

You can switch between centre parts and side parts; wear your hair half or fully pulled back; and play around with texture, too.

Fortunately, the actor – who plays footballer Dani Rojas in the hit show, alongside Phil Dunster – was never at risk of having to chop off his luxuriant hair for the part.

In a 2021 Fashionista interview, Ted Lasso hair and make-up designer Nicky Austin shared, “I would never touch his hair” and recalled a conversation with the producer once Fernández was cast. “I said, ‘I’ve got a question for you,’ and she went, ‘It better not be about cutting Cristo’s hair because that’s not happening.'”

Top tip: regular trims might seem counterintuitive for long styles, but they’re key to keeping your hair in healthy shape. A handy reminder for the next time you’re considering a raincheck on that appointment…

  • For Cristo Fernández’s long wavy hairstyle, take a photo reference and chat with your barber about what’ll best suit your hair texture and styling goals.
  • Cristo’s haircut has a centre part and falls just past his shoulders.
  • Your barber may build in layers to create shape and movement, as well as balance out any bulk/weight.
  • Book in regular cuts to remove split ends and any damage as well as encourage healthy hair growth.
  • Recreate Cristo Fernández’s long volume-packed style by prepping damp/wet hair with a leave-in detangling and conditioning product.
  • A wide-tooth comb can be great for gently navigating knots and creating your part.
  • Gently towel dry your hair using a microfibre towel, which helps to reduce friction and frizz.
  • Work in some pre-styling product – like a golf-ball-sized amount of volumising mousse or a few spritzes of sea salt spray – then blow dry on a low-to-medium heat setting.
  • As you dry, start gently pushing, flipping and moving your hair to build volume. A diffuser dryer attachment can also help to spread and control the air flow, so waves and curls stay structured.
  • Warm a small amount of styling product (like a styling cream with a flexible hold) between your hands and work it through your hair. Remember a little goes a long way and you can always add more if needed.
  • Use your fingers to loosely sweep your hair back off your face and shape your finished style.
