Joshua Jackson: Softly Brushed Back Back Curly Hair

Rated  4.0 4 Star

Joshua Jackson’s softly brushed back, curly hair offers just the right amount of tousle and insouciance to balance out his pristine red carpet fashion vibe.

And MFH loves a bit of style contradiction.

All Hairstyles

Why We Love It:

Joshua Jackson’s softly brushed-back, curly hair is a very flattering hairstyle for the 44-year-old actor.

Combined with that gently greying beard, it’s a mature look that’s aeons removed from his former life as teen heart-throb, Pacey, on Dawson’s Creek (which ran from the last 90s to early noughties).

Joshua’s fine hair and round face shape suits these slightly-grown-out curls, and he (or his hairstylist) loved letting that texture loose.

MFH also loves how he’s going for that swept-back vibe that’s so popular with all the celebs currently, but he’s done it in a more subtle way which is way less severe.


What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Keen on Joshua Jackson’s softly brushed-back, curly hair ? Make sure you go to a barber/hairstylist that does a lot of curly haircuts.
  • This cut has a little more length on the top and back, and is slightly shorter at the sides.
  • A skilled hairstylist will know exactly how to cut your curly hair so that when it’s a bit longer, like Joshua’s hair is here, it won’t mushroom out at the sides.

Get The Look

  • To style Joshua Jackson’s softly brushed-back, curly hair it’s about using the right products and giving your hair lots of TLC.
  • Don’t wash your hair too often, but when you do, gently towel dry the hair by softly squeezing the moisture out with your towel.
  • Whatever you do, don’t rub it or it’ll encourage frizz.
  • You could even purchase a microfibre hair towel which you can wrap your hair in and let it dry while you’re shaving/beard trimming/ getting dressed.
  • Coat your hair evenly from roots to tips with clementine-sized blob of volumising product using your fingers.
  • You could also use the ANFORH Texture Volume Spray which will help add a little more oomph without any stickiness.
  • Use a hairdryer on low speed/medium heat.
  • Using the diffuser attachment (which spreads out the air flow to help the curls stay structured), gently move it around with your fingers and scrunch the hair as you dry it all over to bring out the curl.
  • As you’re drying it, push the hair back at the fringe and the sides with your fingers.
  • Use a 5p piece of matt clay or pomade (warm it up in your hands first) to give that subtle brush back on the top a bit of staying power.
  • Run the left-over product that’s on your hands through the sides.
  • Deep condition your hair once a week – ideally overnight.
  • And always use heat protecting products whenever you use heated tools like a hairdryer.
