Ok, it was the 80s, yes, but George Clooney was already sporting a diesel wavy mane in his youth with that mullet!


George Clooney and the Caesar Cut hairstyle

George Clooney is the epic representation of what the Caesar Cut hairstyle is, there is no debating that. He sported it throughout most of the TV show ER and he rocked this hairstyle like a king in From Dusk Till Dawn. The Caesar Cut hairstyle involves styling the curly hair forward and leaving a short fringe on the forehead. Modelled after the Italian emperor Julius Caesar, this hairstyle turns on women like no other, simply because it gives the wearer of this hairstyle a Clooney-esque and ER doctor allure both at the same time. Seriously, it’s a win-win hairstyle. All you have to do now is twitch your neck constantly and make facial expressions when people talk to you, as The Cloonz loves to do, and people will stop you for autographs when you venture outside of your house.

When not rocking the Caesar Cut hairstyle, George Clooney wears his curls to the side with the Side Swept hairstyle, after all, Mr. Clooney is a classy and elegant man. A perfect hairstyle for when one needs to look conservative, the Side Swept has one parting and sweeping his hair to the side (well, duh?), preferably with a wide tooth comb for us curly haired dudes. George Clooney prefers to wear the Side Swept hairstyle off-screen and with suits, which really enhances his gentleman’s image.

George Clooney and the Natural Layered hairstyle

George Clooney has sported this hairstyle in his younger years and because the man himself ages so well, the Natural Look with Layers removes many years off his face. Likewise, the man himself has stated that he uses no hair products whatsoever and that he really doesn’t do much to his hair. In fact, the Caesar Cut idea was not his but, rather, that of his stylist. With the Natural Layered hairstyle, George Clooney relies on his natural curls to do what they want, without trying to tame them, and in return he looks great. This hairstyle is best accomplished with medium length curls (Type I and II) at the top layering down to a low fade with scissors (no hair clippers are involved).

    Ever since I saw Clooney in ER, I have always sported a caesar cut. It’s a great hairstyle in my opinion, glad you have covered it here and in the other article.
