Why We Love It:

Teo Yoo’s smart slicked back hairstyle is what red-carpet dreams are made of. It’s timeless and sophisticated, with just a hint of texture to soften up the look.

Pictured here at the Golden Globe Awards, the German-Korean actor – who stars in critically-acclaimed 2023 film Past Lives – often sports his 90s-style curtains with a centre part. So, this sweepier look with a side part really shows off the styling flexibility of such a well-executed haircut.

In short, this look gets a standing ovation from us. Bravo.

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • For Teo Yoo’s hairstyle, ask for a medium-length scissor cut with shorter sides and plenty of length left on top for styling.
  • Teo has a 90s-inspired curtains haircut, where the curtains fall just below his browline.
  • He switches between centre and side parts, so let your barber know you’re keen on that versatility, too.
  • They may use a point-cutting technique to add texture and movement, while helping to balance out any bulk/weight.

Get The Look

  • Recreating Teo Yoo’s slicked back hairstyle? Work a golf-ball-sized amount of volumising mousse or some pre-styler (ideally one that offers heat protection) through towel-dried hair.
  • Create your side part with a comb and then blow dry, using your hands and the dryer to build volume.
  • When you’re done, warm a pea-sized-amount of styling product – like a medium- or high-hold pomade – in your hands and work it through your hair.
  • Comb the sides of your hair back, then sweep the top back and over to the side – ruffle the ends slightly with your fingers to create a little texture.
  • The beauty of Teo’s haircut is how many ways you can style it, so play around with different parts and levels of texture.
  • Look after the skin on your scalp – especially if you use styling products that can build up – with the likes of a scalp exfoliant, mask or treatment.
