Bradley Cooper's hair is the divining rod of the men's care industry. No other male celebrity experimented with his look so freely and purposefully. He understands the power of care, not just for his characters, but for himself as well. When A Star Is Born was shown on screen last year, he not only cemented his place as a director, singer and price lure, but also as a full-blown symbol of body care. His character Jackson Maines shaggy rock star anti-style instantly reached iconic status, spurring men everywhere to grow their hair and throw away their razors.
It's hard to separate Cooper from Jackson Maine, so it was such a shock to see him appear in the Golden Globes with a shiny movie star. A few weeks later he appeared at the SAG Awards with a five o'clock shadow and a rather disheveled (but still stylized) coif. If this development is an indication of what will happen at this year's Oscars, when he's on stage with his co-star Lady Gaga and sings "Shallow," I'll put my money in an even more relaxed look, homage to the character that he created.
But that's the Jackson Maine look: it's concrete. Attending Maine at an official event like the Oscars would be completely out of place. Long, unkempt hair looks on stage, but not always on the red carpet. So I called Natalia Bruschi, Cooper's cleaner, and the women behind his iconic grooms to find out how to translate a Maine Mane into an everyday look that any guy can rock, whether it's thousands or thousands of plays Watch home.
WASHING YOUR HAIR NIGHT BEFORE
WASHING The foundation of any good hairstyle is the hair itself. So always start with an empty slate. However, this does not necessarily mean a sparkling "Shampoo the night before is essential," says Bruschi. "Then sleep on it and just wet it the next day. It will have a little oil and a little sleepy body at the roots. "Cooper, of course, has hair, which often turns out to be an attempt, so Bruschi has a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, but always a formula for your specific hair type.
USE A TEXTURE PASTE
To create a lumpy, grainy texture on every hair length, Bruschi uses a texture paste. Pastes have hold, but are not wet or shiny, and many use ingredients such as salt to increase their volume. "Use a small amount and rub it in both hands to evenly distribute the product," says Bruschi. "I'll distribute it first on the back, then put it on the top and sides and then the last piece of product through the front." The last thing you want is a big pile of product front and center, but it's light Add more when you need it.
ALWAYS USE YOUR FINGERS
The secret of a relaxed look is to avoid combs and brushes at all costs. "It's all about manipulating with your fingers and hands," she says. "It mostly taps on the hair, runs his fingers through and squeezes it together to maintain the volume." As Cooper himself told Bruschi of this style, he said, "Relax and do not be such a perfectionist."
