There are some Hollywood hotties who, no matter what they wear, still make girls and women alike squeal with excitement. But what is one of said hotties did something truly disastrous with his hair?
While filming his new movie The Place Beyond the Pines, the usually dapper Ryan Gosling was last week seen sporting a white-blonde quasi-pompadour in place of his usual tousled, dirty-blonde locks. The 30-year-old leading man also swapped out his stylish suits in exchange for a gray muscle tee, skull-emblazoned pants, and combat boots. We can get over the ’90s biker wardrobe, but that dated boy-band hairstyle’s another story. Could such an extreme transformation like this make swoon-inducing Gosling—gasp—unattractive?
Gosling has switched up his ‘do and facial hair for past roles, from shaggy and scruffy to buzzed and clean-shaven, and I personally don’t mind watching him pensively run his fingers through his hair—whatever hue or length. It should also be noted that the last time we saw this look was on Brad Pitt circa 2005, and he ended up scoring tinsel-town’s sexist woman, Angelina Jolie. But when I showed his peroxided locks to other people around the Allure office, I must admit I heard more “ughs” than sighs.
What do you think—can bad hair be a dealbreaker, or does Gosling still make you go weak at the knees? How important is a man’s hair to his overall attractiveness?
