Drawing inspiration from the hair style trends of our
favorite stars and celebrities has become a national pass time. One such
star whose hair style is emulated by men of all ages is
tanned ladies man George
Hamilton. His pin neat hair style,
boyish good looks, uncanny charm, Palm Beach
urbane sophistication are
irresistible to women attracted to the glamorous distinguished types.
TO GET THE LOOK: Do you get a feeling your gray hair and old style is
making you look passé and out of step with the times?
Before you throw in the towel, take a hair styling lesson from gorgeous
George Hamilton. This
dapper movie star and legendary playboy can show you how to look drop dead
handsome at any age. To get the look, let’s take it one step at a time;
starting with a style cut and shaping.
LET’S SHAPE IT: For
George’s style, start with a contoured silhouette for a full look with
close mid-length sideburns and stylish collar length neckline. The sides,
crown and front are shaped to fit the size of the head and face from all
points of view. For
those looking for a no fuzz style, this shapely do’ almost
styles itself. With a few adjustments (tweaks) as it grows you can find
the ideal length and shape for your style.
LET’S STYLE IT:
To style, start with a dab of a shaping
gel, or styling mousse or nothing at all. Just run either through
damp hair and comb in place to dry au natural or give it a quick tousle
with a blow dryer for a full look. If your locks look a bit dry or frizzy
after using a blow dryer, a dab of styling cream will tame it. For
a textured effect, when dry, finger comb a puff of forming
pomade through the top and sides and you’ve got George
Hamilton’s star style!
LET’S ADD SIDEBURNS
AND ACCESSORIES: Nothing
can reshape a face or add a dramatic look like facial hair. For example,
sideburns can be full, close, long, short or narrow. This simple addition
can make large ears appear smaller, a narrow face wider, accent cheek
bones and definitely adds a stylish or artsy look. Include taped mid
length sideburns and
sun glasses with a skin bronzer for a Palm
Beach tan and you’re almost there.
NOW, LET’S COLOR IT: Movie
actors change their hair color often for the many roles they play and
George Hamilton is no exception. To put his graying hair stylishly
“under-cover”, George is given a warm “Smokey gray” hue with a
semi-permanent tint. The left over tint is used to darken the eye brows
for a natural look. To add a distinguished effect the white hair around
the temples and forehead is not colored. To keep it up, the new growth is
re-colored every other month. This extra step will cost a few bucks but
what the hell, it’s a small price to pay for a distinguished look and
all the attention you get.
This dapper movie star
puts you back in the game looking “drop dead” handsome and ten years younger, in a stylish
grown up way. The contoured silhouette fits the shape of your head
and face perfectly from all points of view. The tapered sideburns and
sun glasses with a skin bronzer for a
tan add a “cool casual” look. The all over Smokey Gary color with silver
temples give it a distinguished look and puts your dull gray hair stylishly
under-cover. Heads will turn and your pal’s will be green with
envy when they see all the young ladies making a fuss over you and your
dapper movie star style.
