Halloween Hair How To’s
Jamie Lannister, Game of Thrones (above)
This is a classic cut but styled in a way that gives it a messy, lived in look. Using AXE Messy Look Gel run fingers through entire head of hair from roots to ends. Alternate hands back and forth to rough up the hair and give it that rugged, undone texture.
Derek Zoolander and Hansel, Zoolander 2
Derek: You want that wild spiky look so you will need a bit of length on top. Using a strong holding gel, like AXE Spiked Up Glue, rub product at the roots with your fingers and extending up and out. Finish with a strong holding hairspray.
Hansel: Apply AXE Natural Look Softening Cream to damp hair and blow dry bangs to create a smooth finish. Allow the rest of the hair to air dry a bit to create a wavy texture before using a diffuser and to give it that wavy, beachy look. Sweep the bangs to the side for the final touch.
Pablo Escobar, Narcos
For this look, it’s all about the side part, slight comb over and long sideburns. Start by using a comb to create a deep side part. Then, use a brush and your fingers to pull over the rest of your hair to the side and back. Add a little AXE Natural Look Understated Cream for that extra hold.
Don Draper, Mad Men
This look plays off a super tight, classic pompadour. Start by blow drying while combing back using a round brush. Take about two fingers worth of AXE Clean Cut Look Classic Pomade and work in the product from root to end. Using a comb, pull hair straight back on the sides and slightly up at the top and over to the side to create that subtle pomp.
This style is easy to create if you already have a high and tight fade. Using AXE Messy Look Flexible Paste rough up hair with fingers to create texture. Apply from roots to ends, creating separation and giving the hair a haphazard motion. Lastly, apply some grey hairspray to give it a lasting hold and “second day” feel.
