Lukas Dhont: Short Slicked Back Hair With Tapered Sides

Rated  5.0 5 Star

Belgian film director and screenwriter Lukas Dhont’s short, slicked back hair with tapered sides looked utterly impeccable at the 2023 Oscars.

It’s more a case of Lukas Do (sorry had to be done)…continue looking so damn sharp.

All Hairstyles

Why We Love It:

Lukas Dhont’s short, slicked back hair with tapered sides is *chef’s kiss*. That precise cut! That not-a-hair-out-of-place slick back! The immaculate beard!

Yup, there’s a lot to exclaim over.

The Belgians are renowned for their cool style, and Lukas’s hair is a prime example of why.

And, of course, the slicked back look is the trend du jour for red carpet moments, currently.

Though the 31-year-old is known more for his behind-the-scenes work as a director and screenwriter (his film, Close, was nominated for  Best International Film at the 2023 Oscars).

But MFH reckons he needs screen time, pronto. When you’re blessed with such a beautiful barnet, it seems wasteful to not show it off, right?


What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Lukas Dhont’s short, slicked back hair with tapered sides is tapered skilfully at the back and sides.
  • The top of the hair has been left longer (it’s in 2-3 inch layers) so that it can be easily slicked back.
  • This means it can also be styled in a myriad of different ways, too.

Get The Look

  • Lukas Dhont’s short, slicked back hair with tapered sides is versatile.
  • After you wet or wash your hair, smooth a wet-look gel product on it.
  • Use a little at first.
  • Then slick it back with a Boar bristle brush – it is the ideal tool for creating Lukas’s hairstyle and taming any flyaways.
  • If you need to add more product, you can do it bit by bit to get the look you’re after.
  • If you want a bit of extra staying power, spritz on some hairspray over the to – not too much, though, as you don’t want it to look too hard and crunchy.
  • Lukas could have also opted for an extreme side part and slicked it to the side for a more 1940s vibe like Giovanni Pernice.
  • Another option is to wear it styled into a quiff which he often does.
  • To keep your hair looking in the perfect condition Lukas’s hair is in, try not to wash it every day.
  • You can also use a leave-in conditioner to nourish your hair throughout the day.
  • And once a week or so, treat your barnet to a deep conditioning treatment.
