Theo James: Cropped Wavy Hairstyle

Rated  4.0 4 Star

He plays a devastatingly handsome, smooth – albeit sleazy – dude in White Lotus, and IRL Theo James’ cropped, wavy hairstyle still has that ‘romantic lead‘ vibe.

Or, rather, those dark, glossy, well-cut waves give him srs ‘thirst trap’ energy, as the kids say now.

Why We Love It:

Theo James’ cropped, wavy hairstyle is all about having a great cut – and a stylist who knows how to work with curly/wavy hair.

But if you’re not into a hardcore grooming regime, neither is he, according to an interview he gave to a while ago.

He admitted that when he has a beard, he doesn’t do too much to it after an attempt with a nameless product (we assume a beard oil) made it go really greasy.

But as for his saving regime? It’s a bit more considered. “There is a ritual to a good shave,” he confided.

“You need a new razor that’s really sharp and you have to build up a good pre-shave lather. Then you need one of those aftershave balms so your skin doesn’t get too f*cked.”

He’s a big fan of REN skincare products and Hugo Boss The Scent Deodorant, though he admits: “I’m usually happy to use whatever products are in my hotel or lying around, but a mate recommended Moroccanoil shampoo, so I’ve been using that, too.”

What To Ask Your Barber:

  • Theo James’ cropped, wavy hairstyle is the perfect style for anyone with wavy hair.
  • It’s cropped at the back and sides.
  • The top is left longer to allow for a little movement and softness.
  • This hairstyle will need regular trims every 4-6 weeks to keep it looking fresh.
  • That’ll also ensure that the waves/curls don’t grow too much and ‘puff out’.

Get The Look

  • Theo James’ cropped, wavy hairstyle can work as a wash’n’go style, or you can add in a little product to give it more texture.
  • Use a gentle shampoo and conditioner, but try not to shampoo it every day.
  • You can scrunch in small amount  (half a golf ball) of volumising mousse or spritz in a little sea salt spray from roots to ends at top of the hair, then let it dry naturally.
  • As it dries, use your fingers to add height and texture.
  • If you want to give it a little more texture, you can use a small amount of pomade when it’s dry to smooth out the sides, and ruffle the top.
