The Mane Event: Jared Leto’s Locks Stun at the Oscars

Jared Leto was a big winner last night. He took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor and landed himself atop every “best hair” list. Rightfully so, too. The rocker/actor’s effortless, ombré look was the envy of every viewer – male and female alike.

As soon as he hit the red carpet, my news feed was filled with comments such as, “Printing a pic of Jared to bring to my next hair appointment. BRB.” And you know what? I totally thought the same thing.

So how exactly does the Oscar winner tame his tresses? With the help of his longtime stylist, Chase Kusero, of course. In an interview with Refinery29, Kusero, the man behind such miracles as “The Man Bun,” shared a few secrets about Leto’s locks. Turns out a little product, like Vidal Sassoon’s Creme Pomade, goes a long way in mastering those natural waves. And that coveted color? Kusero reveals it was a mix of a dark, grown-out hue and a few painted strands.

Product and painted strands. Got it. But I also can’t help feeling a big part of Leto’s just-woke-up-like-this look is that, well, he really did just wake up like that. The guy exudes effortless cool. Period.
