Leonardo DiCaprio: Slicked Back Hair With Side Parting

2.0 2 Star

The iconic actor might choose variety when it comes to his roles he plays. But when it comes to hair, Leonardo DiCaprio’s slicked back hair with side parting has been his go-to for years.

MFH says

Once known for his long, floppy, curtain fringe, Leonardo DiCaprio’s hair has come a long way from those teen heartthrob days. And MFH reckons Leonardo DiCaprio’s slicked back hair with side parting is the last word in suave.

And he gets to keep his long fringe too.

Sure, it’s not exactly fashion forward, but for a 47 year old man still in the prime of his career, Leonardo clearly likes a hairstyle that enables him – and us – to concentrate on his performance, not his look.

(See him as Dr Randall Mindy in his current Netflix film, Don’t Look Up, for an example of ‘don’t-care’ hair).

As for the secret behind his slick-back? Rumour has it that Leo discovered pomade when George Clooney, another avid user, introduced it to him. And he apparently now asks for it on every movie set.
