What Will Jared Leto Do With His Hair for the Oscars?


Forget which actress stuns on the red carpet or what wins Best Picture at the Oscars on Sunday … all eyes will be on Jared Leto and what he’ll do with his flowing hair!

Ok, maybe that’s not entirely true, but the topic has been a hot one.

The Gloss spoke to Jared’s hairstylist, Chase Kusero, who revealed what look he’ll be rocking when the Best Supporting Actor nominee (for Dallas Buyer’s Club) hits the ceremony.

“[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 tells the site. “We’ll discuss it this weekend. It’s really important that he doesn’t look like a woman—that’s the biggest challenge … We’ve even had all these actresses, like Olivia Wilde and Rachel Bilson and Julia Roberts, asking about his hair. He does have amazing hair, so it’s kind of inevitable. He’s definitely going to have long hair at the Oscars.”

But just because Jared’s hair won’t be cut, it doesn’t mean it will be down, adds Chase.

“When I see him, we’ll play with his hair for some photos — maybe a high bun, maybe half up, half down—and then go from there. That’s how we got to the pony-bun for the Globes. The big thing on my shoulders right now is if the hair is gonna be up or down — 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.”

Tune in to the Oscars this Sunday at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on ABC to see which style Jared chooses!
