The date night to end all date nights, Valentine’s Day has reared its head again, which means you’re probably thinking about how to look a million dollars when you head out for dinner.
Chances are, you’re probably also thinking about your grooming: there’s no greater lubricant for romance, after all, than looking and fereling your best.
If you’re in need of some inspiration, however, let us direct you to the man who has mastered both with a Leonardo DiCaprio haircut and hairstyle.
Ever the ultimate gent, DiCaprio’s look for the Oscars earlier this week was, well, pure DiCaprio. A single-breasted tux, white dinner shirt and sharp bow tie was the perfect outfit, finished off with his slicked-back, side-parted hairstyle.
We wouldn’t mind re-creating that dapper grooming, so, to look top notch this Valentine’s Day, we called up one of our favourite barbers in Newcastle, UK, Patrick Forster, and asked for his top tips on styling like Leonardo for date night.
El mejor barbero de Newcastle, Patrick Forster, dijo,
"Tengo que estar de acuerdo contigo en esto: el sofisticado estilo de espalda barrida que lució DiCaprio en la ceremonia de los Oscar de esta semana era bastante atemporal y elegante".
Once upon a time in 1990s Hollywood, the actor adopted this dapper-chap look for Titanic and he’s been the king of sleek ever since (special shoutout’s to The Wolf Of Wall Street and The Great Gatsby). He looks sharp, yes, but it’s actually pretty simple to achieve this heavenly hair style.
Pide a tu peluquero el corte de pelo de Leonardo DiCaprio
Pide a tu estilista que te haga un corte de pelo a tijera, dejando longitud en la parte superior y en los laterales para conseguir ese look suave de barrido hacia atrás. Después de esto, puedes recrear el peinado en casa con el mínimo esfuerzo.
Straight hair is a bonus here, but products will ensure you don’t make waves. Create a side parting and use Hairbond’s Gripper Professional Hair Pomade to maintain hold. Then take a wide-tooth comb. The aim is to shape and space your slick back, rather than finish with a full on super-sleek Cary Grant effect.
If you don’t want to be a complete flop on Valentine’s night, make sure you dont forget to use a pre-styler product. The Hairbond Wonder Primer Spray is perfect: it will provide a light enough hold and smooth finish so your partner’s hand won’t get stuck when they caress your irresistibly flawless locks.
