    How to Get Brad Pitt's Many Haircuts & Hairstyles

    by Zheelana Cottam


    Brad Pitt has been one of Hollywood’s style icons since the 1990’s and it’s easy to see why. The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (2019) star has rocked everything from a buzzcut to a pompadour (no, seriously a pompadour) and made it look good. Men – and women – have obsessed with Pitt’s hairstyle evolution throughout the ages, recreating looks from his best movies such as Ocean’s Eleven (1999) where his hair gives off incredible boy band vibes and even Fight Club (1999). Although these days we don’t recommend you get the Tyler Durden haircut.

    Currently Brad is rocking his luscious long hair which put his fans in a flurry when he styled it in a casual messy bun to present at the 2021 Oscars. It’s the perfect look for you Funky Fellas that grew out that long hair during last year’s pandemic and are looking for something to do with it. 

    Don’t worry if long locks aren’t your cup of tea - we will also be covering Brad Pitt’s infamous side part hairstyle from Inglorious Basterds for you shorter haired Fellas too!

    The last time Brad Pitt rocked hair this long he was running from Zombies in World War Z (2013) and looked good doing so. Now he has brought the long hair back and we aren't complaining.

    It’s time to book a trip to the barbers and ask them to neaten up your long hair. Request  a shoulder length cut for the back and sides. The wisps of hair at the front must be kept a generous three inches or so to frame the face, which can be easily tucked away behind your ears (see picture above). 


    • Brad Pitt's hair is naturally straight but don’t let that discourage you Fellas with curls. Whip out those straighteners and get to work.
    • To help keep the frizz away, apply a small amount of the Funky Flex Cream which should keep the frizz at bay and also add hold to your hair. Hair cream is a much better product to use when it comes to styling medium to length hair. It is lightweight and allows for movement. 
    • Now create a side parting and loosely tie back your hair into a free-flowing man bun that grazes the neck. The framing pieces of hair that your barber cut in should fall forward naturally.  


    Haircut 2: Short to Medium Length Hair

    Inglorious Basterds is iconic and so is the Lt. Aldo Raine haircut that Pitt pulls off effortlessly. To create this military inspired look, ask your barber to leave the top of your hair at a medium length, around three inches, with a hard side parting. The sides and back are kept short, tapered and blended from a #1 to #2. Show the picture above for reference to help.

    If you’re looking for more of a modern style, ditch the fade and ask your barber to cut the sides into a clean undercut, which will look more like Brad Pitt’s hairstyle from Fury (below), with the sides retained, of course.

    •  To keep this statement haircut in place, pre-style your hair with some hair wax. We recommend our Styling Funk as soon as you hop out of the shower. 
    • Finish the style with our Matte Lava Clay. Apply on the front and sides on towel dry hair from root to tip for a strong hold. A little of this product goes a long way.
    • Comb your hair high and over to the side in a comb over for extra volume. The end result should be a slicked look side parting with a natural shine.
