Grooming for the Oscars
From stubble to serious scruff, you too can achieve the 2010 Oscar nominated facial hair styles of these leading men.
The Five O’Clock Shadow
There’s a fine line between stylish stubble and negligent looking facial hair. The gruff look worn famously by Robert Downey Jr. in Sherlock Holmes is easy to achieve by trimming instead of shaving using a wide angle trimmer head which easily buzzes the topmost layer of facial hair leaving you looking rugged and ready to rumble.
Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell all don the famous goatee as they play Tony, the many-faced antagonist of The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. Despite its popularity, the goatee requires regular maintenance – the cheeks and neck should be shaved as close as possible using the foil shaver attachment and the detail trimmer attachment is perfect for tightening up the small nooks that give your goatee a well manicured appearance. Keeping the look at a manageable length is simple with an adjustable comb, which allows you to choose your desired length and keep it consistent throughout.
The roguishly likable character of Lt. Aldo Raine in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds was personified by an iconic moustache worn by Brad Pitt. The moustache is a fundamental staple in facial hair styles, and one of the simplest. Maintaining a good ‘tache requires one thing and one thing only: trimming.
The Full Beard
Getting 2010 Oscar winner Jeff Bridges “Bad Blake” look from Crazy Heart is easy – just let it grow. Trim the moustache and side areas with a longer length comb and lightly dab your beard in Tennessee whiskey for that Crazy Heart authenticity.
