Why We Love It:

Dark Widow actor Robert Downey Jr’s taper hairstyle is a great style for a man of a certain age and it really softens any greys.

To style this look, it’s all about using a matte product like a clay, volume powder or a wax to add workable texture.

In terms of maintenance, go see your barber every couple of weeks to keep your taper in shape. Experiment with facial hair like Robert does to add something more unique to the look.

It’s not the most out-there style, but it’s a classic done well.
