Drawing inspiration from the hair style trends of our favorite
stars and celebrities has become national past time. One such star hair style
is Tom Cruise. As
a teen star his boyish good looks and long hair style served him well. Over
the years Tom has been credited with having started many
of the popular hairstyle trends for men. His
movie star good looks and stylish persona
women watching his every move.
TO GET THE LOOK: Do you think itís
"impossible" to have a stylish look with your
thin hair? Before you through in the towel, take a hair styling lesson from Tom Cruise
and watch heads turn when you cruse by with this cool
look. Be forewarned, if you accept this "hair styling mission" be prepared
to use a blow dryer and color your hair. To get the look, letís take it
one step at a time; starting with a style cut and shaping.
LETíS SHAPE IT: To get the look start with a contoured shaping with tapered sides
and neckline stylishly over the ears and collar. The crown is cut short to
stand up for a full look with a few love locks tumbling across the forehead. This
shapely head turning-doí gives thin hair an over all thicker look and
suits most face shape, especial those with large facial features like
Tomís. With a few adjustments (tweaks) as it grows you can easily find
the ideal length and shape for your style.
LETíS STYLE IT: To
jump start your style, start with a dab of shaping
gel or gel mousse for style support and thicker look. Just run either through damp hair and
comb in place to dry au natural, or give it a quick blast
with a blow dryer for a full look. For a spiky tousled look and a
whole new identity, when dry, add a dab foaming pomade
or shaping gel and youíve got the
LETíS ADD SIDEBURNS: Nothing can reshape a face
or add a dramatic look like Sideburns. They can be long, short, narrow or
full. This simple addition can make large ears appear smaller or a narrow
face wider and will definitely add a stylish or artsy look.
Include mid length sideburns and your almost there.
ADD A TAN: What's a star hairstyle without a Hollywood tan and
accessories. Having spent hours in a studio makeup chair, Tom knows how
good you can look and feel with a golden tan. To avoid the risks of sun
damage, many actor's get their golden glow with a transparent waterproof
skin bronzer for the look and feel of a natural tan. Top it off with a
black turtleneck, straight legged jeans paired with a bomber jacket, Ray
Ban aviator sun- glasses and your good to go.
NOW, LETíS COLOR IT: Actorís
change their hair color often for the many characters the
play so dying their hair is no big deal. For Tomís hair color, a warm
brown semi-permanent defines the shape, adds style support and washes the
gray away. To keep it up the re-growth is touched up every 6 weeks. This
extra step will cost a few bucks but what the hell, itís a small price
to pay for a thicker look and all the attention.
Your Cruise worthy doí comes
with all the "bells and whistles" you need for a stylish look. The versatile
silhouette with tapered neckline stylishly over the collar and a few
ďlove locksĒ tumbling across the forehead adds a stylish casual touch.
