From making every girl with an ombré feel insecure (and discouraging others from even trying) to debuting the wonder that is his man braid at last weekend's Golden Globes, Jared pretty much has slayed us all with his hair game. He’s an actor, a musician and ambassador of the man bun—effectively making him a triple threat in our books. The only thing we love more than this Oscar-winner and 30 Seconds to Mars member are his locks, which always steal the show.
While Jared has experimented with anything from blue hair to mohawks, let’s focus on the fact that Jared has been channeling our looks lately and easily outdoing us. And we just don’t think it’s fair. In celebration of this man’s glorious hair, we’ve rounded up 5 times Jared Leto’s hair was better that ours was, is, and ever will be.
Some may say this is a tired look, but it’s really because they believe no one else can do it better than Jared did. Face it, during his acceptance speech at the Oscars last year, we all couldn’t help but wonder if he was just born with it. Are you seeing those stunning curls, cascading over his shoulders? If we ever happened to run into Jared, we’d be sure to ask him who his colorist is.
The Man Bun
And the Golden Globe for Best Man Bun goes to… Jared Leto. Sure, men have been putting their hair into buns for centuries, but we’ve noticed a recent and newfound appreciation for a good man bun ever since this happened at the Golden Globes last year. And still, no one can ever compete.
The Blond Bob
Before Jared became crowned King of The Ombré, he actually went fully blond a few times. This is a throwback to New York Fashion Week 2009—what would we call this 'do now? The man bob? Seriously, is there anything he can’t do? And if life wasn’t fair enough, it seems he frequently sports those effortless beach waves and his roots appear to be flawless. Teach us your ways, Jared.
Half Up, Half Down
Excuse us, but what is this? We imagine him to be the friend in the group who just likes to one-up everyone. He seemed to be experimenting late last year with his half-up, half-down ‘do, which easily makes this the best "I woke up like this" look we've ever seen.
Just when we thought he’d reached the prime of hairdos, Jared debuted the man braid at last weekend’s Golden Globes. Sorry, Elsa, but we think Jared may have outdone you on this on. We just can’t seem to let it go.
We’re still wondering where his Oscar for “Best Hair” is. What is your favorite look Jared Leto look?
