The Academy Awards, one of the most eagerly awaited and glamourous events of the year is fast approaching. On 24 February at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles we will discover the winners of the much yearned for statuette for best film, best production and all the other categories. In the meantime, why not take a look at the beards, moustache and hair styles that stood out within the seventh art over the decades? You are about to embark on trip to planet Hollywood!
THE THREE DAY STUBBLE
Also known as scruffy effect beard, the three day stubble is perfect for a virile and tough look without going to extremes or hiding the facial features. It is 3-4 millimetres long and a typical cut for action film stars; Do you remember Arnold Schwarzenegger in “Predator” (1987) or Kurt Russell in “1997 – Fuga da New York” (1981)? Good, then you know what we’re talking about.
The pencil moustache was a true and proper piece de resistance for cinema stars between the 1920’s and the 1950’s. Consisting of a very fine line of moustache to contour the upper lip, this style was chosen by Clark Gable and Laurence Olivier, its main promoters, mainly thanks to the success of epic movies such as “Gone with the Wind”(1939) and “Rebecca – My first wife” (1940).
A haircut brandished since the 50’s by many male stars in their films. In the Executive Contour the top part of the hair is left long and combed on one side while the sides and the nape are typically faded. Paul Newman, Jude Law, Tom Hardy and Ryan Gosling all chose this style. This old fashioned look continues to be one of the most popular and cool looks in Hollywood and environs.
