Ed Westwick: No 4 Buzz Cut

Rated  4.0 4 Star

Yes, it’s Chuck Bass from the OG Gossip Girl series – otherwise identifying as actor Ed Westwick. And his No 4 buzz cut is as far removed from Chuck’s smooth, preppy look as a Kardashian is from wearing baggy clothes.

All Hairstyles

Why We Love It:

His slick, suave Chuck Bass look was iconic, but Ed Westwick’s No 4 buzz cut gives the actor a more grown-up, sexier vibe.

Not to mention more time in the morning to sleep in due to the lack of styling required.

The buzz cut is a classic hairstyle that never dates, but if you’re self-conscious, there’s no hiding.

The solution for those who want to go super short but are feeling shy? Grow some light stubble or a cropped beard, which will give you something to hide behind if you feel too ‘exposed’.

You’re welcome.

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Ed Westwick’s hair was originally a shorter buzz cut but looks great at this length which is around a No 4 blade.
  • Ed’s hair is approximately ½ an inch (12.7 millimetres).
  • Talk to your barber about the length you want – buzz cuts grow out very quickly, and you may want to start shorter so you can enjoy the different looks as it grows out to a No 4.
  • You could also play around with fades, too, as you get braver with a shorter cut.

Get The Look

  • Ed’s buzz cut is a super low-maintenance style to care for.
  • However, it’s important to still look after it so it’s in good condition if you want to grow it out at some point.
  • Try not to wash it more than 2-3 times a week.
  • Use a deep conditioning treatment once a week.
  • Also, make sure you exfoliate your scalp at least once a week to get rid of dead skin cells and enable healthy new hair growth.
