'It's important he doesn't look like a woman!' Jared Leto's stylist talks his Oscar hair


With his long and lustrous ombre locks, it's 'inevitable' he'll make the cut for the 'best hair' list at the Academy Awards.

Yet, it isn't easy styling Jared Leto's tresses, especially when it comes to perfecting a sleek look for the red carpet.

'It’s really important that he doesn’t look like a woman - that's the biggest challenge,' the 42-year-old actor's hair stylist, Chase Kusero, noted during an interview with Into The Gloss.

Though it's never been the pair's intention for Jared to sport such a covetable 'do on the carpet, it hasn't stopped A-list actresses - including Rachel Bilson, Julia Roberts and Olivia Wilde - from pining for his style secret.

For this Sunday's award ceremony, the Dallas Buyers Club star has yet to pinpoint a precise 'do.
But rest assured, he's won't but chopping off his precious locks before gracing the carpet with his mother Constance Leto - who is set to be his date for the evening since accepting an invitation from the 30 Seconds to Mars musician via a FaceTiming session.

'[Jared and I] were going to shock everybody and show up for the Academy Awards with a haircut, but it’s looking so good that we don’t really want to cut it,' Chase, who has been with the Best Supporting Actor nominee for six years, stated before admitting which style he's gravitating towards.
'The only thing I can say is that right now I'm all about the "wet look."'

Whether that will be up or down is to be determined this weekend, but Chase said he's leaning towards up.

'I’m voting up, because we’ve only done it maybe once before. I want to do something with a side part this time, something cleaner. And I want to try to get a bun that’s nice and small, more like a traditional knot.

'The pony-bun press was kind of funny—I don’t know if he liked all that or not. We both agree that it has to look like something he would do himself.'

The pony-bun is what Jared sported to the Golden Globes, where he was honoured with the award for his role as Rayon, an AIDS-infected transgender drug addict in Dallas Buyers Club.

There are high hopes for him to take home the award this weekend as well.
