Chris Pine graced the red carpet with multi-dimensional-hued hair. Donald Glover came to win with shorter strands. Even Casey Affleck's whiskers were at both times curly and intentionally rugged. However, if we had to give it to one guy in the Best Grooming category, the award would have to go to Ryan Reynolds!
Despite traditional notions about men's beauty prep (a.k.a. the get-up-and-go approach), a well-prepped face for the fellas does take effort—just ask Kristan Serafino, who was responsible for the Deadpool actor's Golden Globes look.
What exactly does this process look like? Keep reading.
His HairIn case you ever wondered what it's like to run your hands through Ryan's hair, it's thick and dense, noted the pro. The texture and density of any hair should really dictate what style and products you use.
"Ryan Reynolds is a union of old Hollywood meets contemporary man," said the pro. "I wanted to perpetuate the qualities of both eras. On the night of the Golden Globes, I cut his hair short on the sides with special attention to rounded corners (the parietal ridge) leading into length. The length is fullest on the top and crown of the head with plenty of texture. The shorter hair on the sides, along with a manicured stubble beard gives his evening style a relaxed elegance."
His Facial HairAfter cleansing and prepping the star's skin with serum, Kristan used RéVive Rescue Elixir Anti-Aging Oil as beard oil, using just a drop and applying it under the chin and massaging upward toward the cheeks. This also helps hydrate any dry patches.
Pro tip: Blake Lively's other half apparently doesn't mind a little gray—but for those who it might bother, she recommended using Anastasia of Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel to gently fill in the beard color where needed.
