How to Get Milo Ventimiglia’s Hair (and Mustache) From ‘This Is Us’

This Is Us is a tearjerker, almost entirely because Milo Ventimiglia’s hair just looks that damn good. (A roster of great actors helps, too.) We put Ventimiglia front and center on our November cover, a bit cleaned up by comparison to his small-screen persona—but no less rakish.

 

 

Wondering how you can replicate his long locks for yourself? We got some pointers from Justin Virgil Gramelspacher, master barber at Blind Barber in New York City. (You can find him at the East Village and Moxy Times Square locations.) Here’s what Gramelspacher taught us about Ventimiglia’s hair, and, as an added bonus, about his equally renowned mustache, too.

The Kind of Hair You Need

You need to have moderately curly, wavy, or straight hair if you want to replicate this style (though the result will vary from one guy to the next), Gramelspacher says.

“It’ll need to be cut and styled based on your individual texture and density,” he says.


How Milo Ventimiglia Keeps His Cool

If you’re receding at all, don’t shy away from the look, either: He says that Ventimiglia’s cut works well on both a full or receded hairline.

What Kind of Regimen Does it Require?

You need to get yourself in a barber’s chair every 6-8 weeks in order to properly texturize the hair and reduce any bulk, Gramelspacher says. That seems counterproductive, but if you don’t clean it up as it grows, then you’ll suffer through a year of growth (and awkward hairstyles) until you reach the promised land.

He advises shampooing three times a week—no more, no less—before bed if it gets too dried out after a wash. (“This allows some of your natural oils to return overnight and your hair will be easier to tame in the morning.“)

Always follow a shampoo with conditioner to restore nutrients and softness to your hair after a drying wash. We’re fans of Blind Barber’s shampoo and conditioner.

How to Do You Style It?

“Long hair has to move but you still want it to hold a shape,” Gramelspacher says.

That means you want to avoid sticky or greasy hair products with high hold.

“For a low-commitment approach, comb sea salt spray (Verb Products Sea Spray) or clean-hold gel (Kiehl’s Grooming Solutions Clean Hold Styling Gel) through towel dried hair to set the shape, and let it air dry. Once the hair has dried, run your hands through it repeatedly to break up the stiff bonds that form. Don’t worry, the product will still be there, doing its job invisibly. Follow up with styling cream (V76 Grooming Cream Ultralight Hold) to give weight, nourishment, and separation to the hair.”

If you have thin or thinning hair, you should consider using a blow dryer (after the gel or salt spray, but before the styling cream). Gramelspacher says this is an effective way to increase density and volume.

And if you have curly hair: “Work a generous amount of anti-frizz cream (Living Proof NourishingStyling Cream) through towel-dried hair, and blow dry to activate and relax the curl for a wavier look.”

How to Transition This Cleaned-up Look Into a Grittier Style (like Ventimiglia’s character on This Is Us)

This style is kind of the longest it can be before things look a little too gritty. That being said, you can still grow it longer, but it’s advised that you continue seeing your stylist every 2 months to texturize the hair and clean up the ends—even if you want to look a little less refined. (Again, the goal isn’t to feel awkward during growth.)

How to Replicate Milo’s Mustache

Mustache maintenance is pretty DIY.

“Use an electric trimmer with a number 1 or 2 guard and rake downward, with the grain, along the mustache,” Gramelspacher says. “Repeat until the bulk is even and smooth to the face. Remove the guard and use the bare blade to trim any stray hairs that extend from the bulk along the lip line.”

In this case, less is more.

Emmys 2018: Milo Ventimiglia, Trevor Noah, and the Most Stylish Guys at the 70th Awards Show

Last night, the 70th annual Emmy Awards were held in Los Angeles and had everything from a surprise marriage proposal to a not-so-surprising Outstanding Drama win for—you guessed it—Game of Thrones. While there were some moments during the night that kept us on our toes, there was never a doubt which guys had the best style on the gold carpet. Below, we’ve rounded up a few of the best-dressed guys that you should definitely be taking a few style cues from the next time you need to throw on a suit.

 

Milo Ventimiglia

Your favorite TV dad expertly pulled off a white suit without looking like he’s trying too hard—an often impossible task. Follow Milo’s style by adding a black bowtie and exposed buttons to tone down all the white.

Justin Timberlake

 

We’re so glad Justin and Jessica were able to get a sitter for the Emmys, or we wouldn’t have been able to see his classic Tom Ford look walk down the red carpet. Supporting Biel in her Emmy nom for her stellar role in The Sinner, Timberlake kept it clean and classy.

Colin Jost & Michael Che

Before taking the stage at the 70th annual Emmys, the hosts both pulled off non-traditional looks. Jost showed up in a dark plum suit and Che walked down the carpet in a go-to modern looks you’ll want to try yourself in an all-black ensemble sans tie.

While not everyone can afford Trevor Noah’s Louboutins, they can still follow a few style tips from the late night host. A classic all-black tuxedo can go a long way with a crisp white shirt under it and never goes out of style. Ever.

Emmy winner Peter Dinklage took home his third golden trophy for his role as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, and looked great in his suit while doing it. Shying away from the bow tie trend of the night, Dinklage opted to don a skinny tie to complement his attire.

Pinstripes may be hard to pull off, but Donald Glover, nominated for his acting, directing, and writing, along with several other nods for Atlanta, makes it look easy in a custom Gucci suit. A twist on the classic tuxedo, Glover’s stylist says that his suit was inspired by a vintage photo of a man in a striped suit and bowtie. What can’t he do?

Girls pull down or take off their tops, stripping off their bikini bottoms to get some panties. These three get naked in the pool and kiss each other, grabbing asses pressing their bodies against each other.

Milo Ventimiglia Watches ‘Gilmore Girls’ In Web Series, Declares ‘Rory Sucks’

File this under weird, meta and something we probably could have done without.

In a clip from the CW Seed web series “The P.E.T. Squad Files,” Milo Ventimiglia’s character Cash watches Rory tell Jess that she really doesn’t want to be with him on “Gilmore Girls.” Ventimiglia, of course played Jess on the CW series, which aired from 2000 to 2007.

“You guys watching Gilly Girls? I fucking love that show! Hey, Cash, that guy kind of looks like you,” his friend says in the clip, adding, “I took one of those personality tests, I’m like a classic Rory.”

“Rory sucks, bro,” Ventimiglia replies, which might be funnier if he and Alexis Bledel didn’t date in real life for three and a half years, or apparently have a tumultuous relationship of their own.
