This is Grooming Gods, a tour of the best and wildest celebrity hair and beauty out there this week.
This, folks, is the ne plus ultra of lax bro flow, if your undergrad buds had access to a cabal of stylists and top-tier grooming products—and the wherewithal to put them to good use. If you’ve got locks half as luscious as Powell’s (the kind too long to benefit from the sebum your scalp naturally produces), a drop or two of hair oil will prevent flyaways and restore your mane’s natural luster. Aesop’s is formulated with a nourishing blend of rosehip and avocado for extra definition and minimal shine. Still curious how Powell gets his hair looking so silky smooth? Well, we’d direct you to the benefits mentioned above, but investing in a primo blow dryer never hurts. Sedu’s ionic version helps lock in longer styles, but operates at a lower heat than the competition to avoid undue damage.
Earlier this week, the second-oldest Jonas brother hit the LA premiere of his upcoming film, Devotion, with an extremely enviable mane on full display. The key to keeping your strands from shriveling up if you find yourself somewhere with weather slightly less pleasant than the Golden State? A hydrating hair mask. French brand Leonor Greyl uses jojoba oil, shea butter, and vanilla extract to instantly revive parched strands—and happens to smell incredible too. But to really nail Jonas’ gently slicked-back look (and tame those rogue flyaways), top it off with a strong pomade. We’re partial to Firsthand Supply’s all-purpose option, made with clean ingredients you can feel good about rubbing into your precious crown.
Nicholas Hoult’s perfectly slouchy—and very Armani-indebted—outfit garnered a lot of chatter around these parts, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t spotlight his on-point grooming here as well. If your hair is on the thinner side but still long enough to style, a clay will give you the choppiness and definition you’re after—bonus points if you apply it damp for a little extra shine. To approximate Hoult’s barely-there perma-stubble, make sure you’ve got a solid beard trimmer on-hand too. Philips’ all-in-one option routinely ranks at the top of our list, thanks to an array of heads and guards that allow for ultra-fine detailing and easy spot-checking in the places that need it most. (And to really pull the artfully disheveled look together, why not cop a louche suit while you’re at it?)
Michael B. Jordan
Man, that Devotion premiere must’ve been popping. While Jonas was strolling the red carpet in all his coiffuered glory, Michael B. Jordan was at the same event, sporting his signature pitch-perfect modified goatee. Getting this level of precision isn’t easy—unless you’ve got a top-notch trimmer on hand…like, say, this one from Bevel. Hell, we dig its meticulous gap adjustments and graphite-coated blades so much it nabbed a Grooming Award three years in a row. Once you’re done sculpting, reach for a solid beard oil to soothe and hydrate (without clogging your pores) to reduce any post-trim irritation.
