How To Look As Cool As Justin Timberlake in Mirrors #2 - The Hairstyle
GQ asked master hair stylist Jordan Blackmore for opinions on how to create the awesome new hair-do of Justin Timberlake and this is his answer. Follow closely, folks.
To get this baller hairstyle, you need some mad blow drying skills. That sort of wizardry is best left to the pros—JT's got enough cheddar to pay a stylist daily. That said, this is hair worth fighting for. If he can bring sexy back, you can learn to operate a blow dryer.
Twin Turbo Blow dryer
Denman Round Brush
Oribe Maximista Thickening Hair Spray
Murray's Original Pomade
1. Get Dirty: "Start with wet, unshampooed hair—sometimes dirtier can be better for styling."
2. Max Out: "Towel dry your hair, pump on about six sprays of Maximista, and comb through to distribute evenly."
3. Blow On It: "For the sides and the back, blow dry it forwards and down. For the top, start at the hairline, pull the hair straight towards the ceiling using a round brush, and blow dry it north. You want to make your hair big like Albert Einstein, because you can always get it to be small through gravity and product."
4. Comb On Over: "If you're going to part on the left side, pull the hair right with the round brush and blow dry. Creating tension with the comb is the most important thing—you're removing moisture and teaching your hair to be straight."
5. Shape Up: "After your hair's thoroughly dry, use Murray's to fatten your follicle up and shape everything together. If you've got a good hairline like Justin, you want a lot of lift in the front—it'll give you that really polished Gatsby look."—Jordan Blackmore
