Will he cut it short? Slick it back? Sport a faux-bob? Wear a fishtail braid? According to Into the Gloss who spoke with Jared's stylist Chase Kusero, the infamous man bun just may just make a reprisal at this year's Academy Awards.
Chase told ITG, "[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." So, will his hair be up or down? "I'm voting up, because we've only done it maybe once before," said Chase.
The stylist went on to explain the main issue with Jared's hair: butch-ifying it. "It's really important that he doesn't look like a woman—that's the biggest challenge. It's been hard to have him not end up on the ‘best hair' lists—and that definitely hasn't been our intention," he said.
But when you have long, flowing locks like Jared, all the women in Hollywood want to copy it. "We've even had all these actresses, like Olivia Wilde and Rachel Bilson and Julia Roberts, asking about his hair," said Chase. "He does have amazing hair, so it's kind of inevitable. He's definitely going to have long hair at the Oscars."
Although apparently after Chase's interview with Into the Gloss, the stylist and actor went back to the drawing board. Chase emailed ITG with an update saying, "The only thing I can say is that right now I'm all about the 'wet look.'"
Hmm…That's decidedly more vague than what he was saying before. So looks like Jared may be sporting a wet man bun? Not quite sure how that translates to red carpet hair, but we're ready and waiting to see come Sunday!
