Leonardo DiCaprio is one of my favorite actors out there on the acting scene.
He has been in some epic movies and this year he finally won his first Oscar for The Revenant after many failed attempts.
At 42 Leo has for a number of years gone for the very stylish Gatsby look with a side parted combed hairstyle.
A pomade styling aid will get that slick look and hold your hair in shape.
You can see that Leo’s hair is tapered in length so that the top is longer than the sides. The top is around 4 to 6 inches in length, this then allows the hair to flop to the side or to be slicked back.
The key to this hair style is to keep the hair flat. I would combed the hair after applying the pomade and keeping combing the hair with long brush strokes until the pomade sets and keeps the hair in place.
With this style you will look sharp and clean and will certainly look the part.
There are two types of pomade to go for. One is oiled based and the other is water based. To get that shine like Leo has I would go for an oil based pomade.
Make sure you don’t have any hair that gets in the way and fulls down to create a fringe, not a good look if that happens.
