Ewan McGregor can headline massive blockbusters like Star Wars and Doctor Sleep. But at his core, he’s an everyman who’s been earnestly open about his fallible past. It’s his relatability that makes him so fun to watch on the silver screen and root for in real life. But there’s one thing that catches people off guard when they meet the actor. Our contributing editor Mickey Rapkin, who wrote the cover story on Ewan McGregor, can attest to this: “He has insanely good hair. Like rip-your-eyes-out-with-jealousy hair.”
Please don’t go to that extreme. While it’s true, McGregor has an incredibly thick mane—especially at 48—you can replicate the hairstyle seen on our November issue.
If you’re curious how to emulate the smooth, combed-back look, consider the following advice from Michael Pettett, senior barber at Fellow Barber in San Francisco.
Who Can Get Ewan McGregor’s Voluminous Hairstyle (and Who Can’t)
To achieve this style, your hair will need to be long enough to flop over without any product. Pettett posits that 4–6 inches of hair is the ideal range for most men. He also says that you’ll have the best results with straight, dense hair. “Ewan has densely packed hair, which gives him that very full, voluminous appeal,” he says. “His hair is also straight, which allows for a smoother look, since straight hairs like to lay gently next to one another.” (As opposed to textured styles, which create more bulk.)
Men with receding hairlines can easily sport this style, too. “If you look at recession lines, they generally point backward toward the crown of the head,” Pettett notes. “So by pulling your hair back in the same direction, you create an awesome flow that blends beautifully together.” In fact, it’s the guys with fuller hairlines who may have a problem with the style, since their hair may not flow back as seamlessly. “They may need a bit more product or blow dryer usage to encourage the hair,” Pettett says.
However, there’s a point at which men with thinning hair should consider a new style. “This kind of look can also accentuate balding in an unappealing manner,” Pettett says. “Once the recession lines reach farther back on the head, it’ll begin to reveal more balding than receding.”
Length and Maintenance
Your hair grows approximately half an inch each month, Pettett says. So if you started from scratch with buzzed hair, you’d need about 10–12 months to get to this point. But you also want to wear a flattering style all the while, so Pettett suggests wearing something like a high and tight for the first few months: “My best advice is to grow the top out and keep the sides trimmed to a length that you’re most comfortable with until the length of hair on top of your head begins to catch up to the sides, where you can then grow them out together.”
And along the way, you could encounter a few awkward stages of growth. To avoid those, and more importantly, to ensure that this style grows out as intended, Pettet suggests getting routine haircuts—more like “hair trims”—every 7–8 weeks.
How to Style the Look
Start with clean, towel-dried (damp) hair, Pettett says. Next, apply a mineral or salt spray to help texturize and lightly hold the hair. Then you’ll go in with a blow dryer. (Fellow Barber’s mineral spray is excellent for this. So is Gamma +’s ionic blow dryer, which will dry hair much faster but also much safer—without frying it.)
“Apply enough [spray] to coat the hair evenly and use your hands to thoroughly blend it throughout your hair,” he says. “After that, use your blow dryer on medium heat and velocity, so you can control the flow a bit easier. Begin drying all of the hair in a backwards motion to give the overall shape the direction you desire.” He also recommends using a light hair brush or wide-tooth comb to help coach the hair and make sure the air flow from the dryer is also reaching the roots.
When it’s all about 90 percent dry, gently tousle the topmost hairs at their roots, which will give you more lift and volume, says Pettett. Finish drying, then apply another product—something to provide more weight, texture, hold, and structure. You can use clay if you want a stronger hold with a fuller finish, or a paste for touchable texture and medium hold. On the other hand, you can also opt for a cream if you prefer a lighter hold and more natural movement.
Another Way to Wear This Haircut
You can also comb this style to the side for a more classic “gentleman’s cut,” says Pettett. And, until it gets too long, you can also wear it forward for a more casual look, styled lightly with cream or paste. When it’s short enough to do that, it’s also cooperative enough to texturize (also with paste or clay) and wear tousled and up, like a “surfer’s cut.”

Not too long ago YBN Almighty Jay got caught napping on the streets of the city that never sleep and while he was forced to take an L back home as a souvenir, he’s still standing proud and isn’t letting that bump in his road to riches slow him down.
Today Jay comes through with a new clip for his cut “God Save Me” in which he roams a cemetery before sitting in a house of God reflecting on his struggle days. Given the circumstances he went through and the title of this joint don’t be surprised if social media cuts ass on him something ruthless. Take it easy on him, b.

A few weeks ago Takeoff became the second of the three Migos to drop his first dolo effort The Last Rocket and though he’s only dropped one visual in support of the project today he returns with the re-up.
Coming through with a clip for the album cut “Casper,” Takeoff keeps with the album title’s space theme and goes on an interstellar adventure with a gang of thick young women and a homie in a spacesuit. We guess Takeoff is able to breath in space without one.
Back on earth Joell Ortiz and Apollo Brown get their OG on and use old school footage of hood life back in the day to remind everyone that they come from harder times in their clip to “Grace Of God.”

After a 14-year hiatus The Diplomats finally reunited for their highly anticipated comeback album Diplomatic Ties and to accompany the release of their album come through with a clip for an album cut.
For their military themed clip to “On God,” Belly joins the Dip Set on a battlefield where the team gets ready for war in their bunk while poppin’ bottles and puffing on piff. Maybe they’re stationed at the border where they don’t have to be on point cause there ain’t no actual threat to the nation.
Kodak Black meanwhile links up with Travis Scott and makes the most of a green screen and utilizes some simple special effects in the background for his visual to “Zeze.”

French Montana went from being all over the place to sporadically dropping new material here and there but regardless of how consistent he is when he does drop something people pay attention.
Today the Bronx rapper jumps back on the scene with the long awaited visual to the Drake assisted “No Stylist” where the two floss their lavish lifestyle from the block to the private fashion shows. Dope to see Slick Rick still stylin’ on them by the way.
Former Clipse No Malice meanwhile continues to spread the word of the Lord with hopes of converting heathens into God fearing apostles in Mark Steele’s clip to “Grace Of God.” We wonder what’s his views on Jesus Malverde a.k.a. the patron saint of drug smugglers.

A community in Alabama is on the verge of banning saggy pants — and one lawmaker said it’s because God doesn’t like the look.
“I prayed about this,” Dadeville City Council member Frank Goodman said at last week’s council meeting, according to the Alexander City Outlook. “I know that God would not go around with pants down.”
Goodman told The Daily Beast that seeing saggy pants was “something I couldn’t take no more.”
So he asked God for some guidance on the issue.
“He would show me this saggy pant — it’s one of the things He did not do,” he told the website. “It is not in His orders to do that to gain eternal life.”
Goodman also said it’s a matter of respect.
“I think slacking is disrespectful,” he said, according to the Outlook. “I think it gives our younger generation the wrong impression of what is cool.”
The proposed pants ban hit a snag when it was pointed out that it could be unfairly applied to men and not to women. As a result, the proposal is being rewritten to include short skirts.
“My concern is it should be for everybody,” council member Stephanie Kelley said at the meeting, according to the Outlook. “I think for the girls, with these shorts up so high looking like under garments and dresses so short, I don’t want us to be showing favoritism.”
The town’s lawyer is expected to present the wording of the ban at an upcoming meeting. The ban would then go to a vote.

Count Donnie McClurkin as one of the people upset that the Supreme Court of the United States had the nerve to legalize gay marriage. Apparently the minister and gospel singer, who used to be gay but was allegedly “delivert,” isn’t here for man and man or woman and woman getting married.
Why? Because God said so.
“GOD has set the only standard for marriage to be between man and woman…in biology, in physiology, in history, biblically & scripturally and that..I will NEVER speak against!,” he said in a Facebook post.
Mr. McClurkin, thou doth protest too much, maybe?
