One such star whose hair style is always on the must have list is Hollywood’s bad boy Robert Downey Jr. His tousled finger combed hair style and movie star persona is irresistible to ladies who are attracted to the wild side and quite the catch for those girls who are drawn to the sensitive, creative types.
TO GET THE LOOK: Are you looking for a hair style to go with your bad boy image? Try Robert’s hair style on for size and walk on the wild side. Be forewarned, this bad boy hair-do’ is a “babe magnet". To get the look, let’s take it one step at a time; starting with a style cut and shaping.
LET’S SHAPE IT: start with a contoured silhouette with full tapered sides and neckline stylishly over the collar. The crown is cut short to stand up for a full look or combed forward with a few "love locks" casually covering the hairline. This shapely finger combed head turning-do’ almost styles itself. With a few adjustments (trims) as it grows you can easily find the ideal length and shape for your personal style.
LET’S STYLE IT: To jump start your style; apply a dab of shaping gel or mousse or nothing at all. Just run either through damp hair and comb in place to dry au natural, or give it a quick once over with a blow dryer for a full tousled look. For the “bad boy” look, when dry, add a dab of hair polish and you’ve got the look.
LET’S ADD WHISKERS: Nothing can reshape a face or add a dramatic look like facial hair. This simple addition can make a weak narrow chin stronger, a double chin disappear, cover a wide upper lip or a ruddy complexion, add a few years to a baby face and defiantly adds a rugged, stylish or artsy look. Let your whiskers grow for a few weeks and visit a stylist to have it shaped for your face shape and features.
NOW, LET’S COLOR IT: Movie actors change their hair color often for the many roles they play so dying their hair is no big deal. If you have brown hair with gray around the edge a rich brown tint or a shade closest to your natural hair color will define the shape and wash way the gray away. After, a clear glaze seals-in the color and turn on the shine. For Robert’s blond hair color, a golden blond high lift tint adds a sun bleached look. To keep it up plan on having the new growth colored with every other style cut. This will cost a few extra bucks but is well worth the price for cool look and all the attention you'll get.
AT A GLANCE this shapely head turning finger combed look let’s the ladies know you’re the type of dude that walks on the wild side. The contoured silhouette and tapered neckline stylishly over the collar and a few casual "love locks" across the forehead turns the style meter up a notch. The sun kissed hair color and whiskers gives it a edgy touch that's irresistible to the ladies attracted to your "wild side".
