The best men’s hairstyles from the 90th Academy Awards

These dapper gents stole the limelight...  

There’s no denying it: last night’s 90th Academy Awards was one hell of an event. And while we were excited to see who would scoop up an award for their acting talents, it was the amazing hair looks from Hollywood’s leading men and women that had the All Things Hair team jumping for joy.

Now, the ladies may be the ones to steal the spotlight at such events with their parade of incredible attire, but we have to give it to the boys this time around. To see which male A-listers got our seal of approval for their hot red carpet manes, scroll down and take a look at the coolest styles from the night – who knows, you might just find a ‘do to trial for the year ahead!

Men’s hairstyles to take note of from this seasons’ Oscars

Timothée Chalamet’s stylish flow hairstyle

Timothée Chalamet is one of the most buzzed-about gents in Hollywood right now, not just because of his acting talent, but also because of his impressive mane.

For the event, the rising star kept his curly mane lightly tousled, proving that the flow hairstyle trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Editor’s tip: If you’ve got medium-length or long hair, and want to get this effortless look, just spritz some of the TONI&GUY Men’s Messy Salt Spray into your damp hair and leave it to dry.

Then just like 1, 2, 3, you’ve got a low-maintenance bed-head hairstyle that’s perfect for the office and the red carpet!

Chadwick Boseman’s Wakanda haircut

If you’re a black gentleman who is ready to stylishly upgrade your mane this year, the only haircut you should consider getting is the Wakanda haircut.

With its natural long top and sharp faded sides, you’ll instantly elevate your mane to seriously stylish heights. Isn’t that right, Chadwick Boseman?

Ansel Elgort’s textured quiff

If we learnt anything from this seasons’ Academy Awards it’s that casually polished looks are in. The best way to get in on the trend? By sporting a textured quiff hairstyle, like Ansel Elgort has done.

This easy-to-wear style strikes the perfect balance between formal and informal, meaning you can literally rock it for any occasion – pretty smart styling, right?

Caleb Landry’s swept-back ‘do

Instead of wearing your long to medium lengths loose, stylishly switch things up and sweep them back to refresh your look, like Caleb Landry with his mid brown locks.

Now, if you really want to look the part, pair your ‘do with a set of sunglasses and you’ll be red carpet-ready for any occasion that may come your way.

Mahershala Ali’s South of France haircut

For anyone who missed the ceremony last night, let us fill you in. Moonlight won a bunch of awards throughout the night (including best picture), yet it was lead actor Mahershala Ali’s dapper mane that really stole the show for us!

Sporting a cool South of France haircut – AKA the gentleman’s mohawk – Mahershala’s cut was the perfect balance of sophistication and on-trend edge, making it ideal for the formal event.

Chris Evans’ slick comb over

Captain America star Chris Evans proved that a slick-back look is still top of the trends list, rocking this side parted ‘do on the Oscars 2017 red carpet. This no-fuss, timeless look never goes out of style and works a treat with those with fine or unruly locks!

Editor’s tip: The key to perfecting comb over hairstyles, is investing in a great styling wax (like the Lynx Signature Clean Cut Look Definition Wax), so choose wisely.

Want to give your mane a more refined finish this season? Looking to create the perfect slick side part at home? Then check out our quick comb over tutorial, here!

Dev Patel’s curly mane

Thought that red carpet styles meant rocking an ultra styled look? Well, think again, because Lion star Dev Patel oozed casual surfer dude vibes with his lightly tousled curls last night.

Justin Timberlake’s Caesar fade

Want a ‘do that’s classy, yet contemporary? Then take a leaf out of Justin Timberlake’s book, whose lightly tousled short crop is the perfect example of how to work a classic short cut in an utterly modern way!

Draw inspiration from the singer and refresh your Caesar cut by pairing it with an edgy skin fade.

Editor’s tip: To add some texture to the top, work a little bit of the VO5 Matt Clay into your mane. It’s great for adding definition, while boasting a barely-there matte finish.
