As another award show season draws to a close, we’re left reminiscing over the most beautiful, glamorous, and sometimes shocking red carpet looks of the season. While tons of starlets bless the red carpet with gorgeous gowns, expensive jewelry, and glossy dark brown hair, we can’t help but also pay homage to the most dapper man in Hollywood: Bradley Cooper.
On February 24, Hollywood’s biggest names in flocked to the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to celebrate the year’s biggest achievements in cinema. This year, all eyes were on Bradley Cooper. It was a big night for the triple-threat star, who earned nominations in the Best Lead Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay categories for his stellar performance as Jackson Maine in his Best Picture-nominated film. He even hit the stage with his pop star-turned-actress costar to perform their hit song from the film.
Though he didn’t take home any of the coveted awards this year, Bradley Cooper’s hair gets our vote for best men’s ‘do of the night. Natalia Bruschi, celebrity groomer and Redken brand ambassador, created a soft, swept-back hairstyle on Cooper for Hollywood’s biggest night of the year. This isn’t the first time the Bruschi helped Cooper get red carpet ready. The mane master also groomed Cooper for an award show appearance in 2015.
“Bradley wanted his hair to look relaxed and styled back for Oscars, so I decided to use the Redken Brews Cream Pomade to give him that smooth, effortless finish,” Bruschi says. “I really love the scent and feel of the Redken Brews products. They make it easy to groom my male clients, no matter the look.”
If you’d like to recreate Cooper’s award show ‘do at home, you’re in luck! We got the inside scoop on exactly how Bruschi achieved the look. Keep scrolling for a step-by-step guide.
How To Get Bradley Cooper’s Hair
For this look, begin with freshly washed hair. Bruschi recommends using the Redken Brews 3-In-1 Shampoo, Conditioner, and Body Wash. Then, blow-dry your hair, tousling it with your fingers until it’s fully dry.
Rub a dime size amount of the Redken Brews Cream Pomade between your palms. This water-based pomade for men has a medium hold and adds smooth finish to men's hairstyles. Run the product through your hair going towards the back of your head to create a soft hold and add texture.
Once you’ve obtained your desired look, lock the style in place with a few spritzes of Redken Brews Hairspray. The product keeps your style in place with maximum control in a compact, supercharged bottle.
