HairHow to Tame Your Wavy Hair
Starring: James Franco
Franco has nailed a wide variety of hairdos in his day, from buzzed and controlled to side-parted to long and unruly, hell he's even done rainbow-dyed and pulled it off in his own special way. Sadly, though, the wavy mane he turned up in at the 42nd Deauville American Film Festival yesterday wasn't his best. The problem is, most guys would kill to have a thick head of hair like that, and we get the impetus to kinda just let it be, overflowing with undulating abandon. But that sort of unkempt appearance is rarely, if ever, is the result of no maintenance.
In fact, like so many things in life, the appearance of effortlessness is actually the result of, well, some effort. First thing, naturally, happens when you're in the barber's seat, the best place to ensure your hair will be looking its best in the long-term. A few years back, hair pro David Cox suggested that guys with natural waviness ask their stylist to add layers to their 'do, specifically asking for a point cut.
Next, when doing your hair straight from the shower, make sure to blot a majority of the moisture out, but don't over-dry by rubbing it like they do in the movies, or else you'll invite frizz, which is never a good thing. Lastly, make sure you have the right tools handy, from a wide-toothed comb to products like thick strong-hold pomades and even a little sea salt spray to add volume.
James, buddy, you are this close to nailing this, you just need a good dollop of some product, a blow-dryer, and, like, three minutes before you're red carpet ready. Your suit looks great, your nailing the '70s-vibe mustache, we just want this last thing for you to complete the look. It's a great time to be a guy with curly hair, embrace it.
