There is no be-all, end-all formula to singularly solve everybody’s hair care problems. The techniques and products that individuals swear on can be as numerous as the hairs on one’s head. And while a commercial solution can be readily selected from the vast array of consumer hair products, still some people choose to go back to grass-roots hair care by going organic and experimenting with various items as part of their signature takes on getting great hair. So what are their secret? The following male celebrities reveal heir hair secrets in ways that might surprise you:
1. Bruno Mars
He styles his hair with a dubious concoction made out of gobs of margarine, fruit juice, berries, and barbecue-flavor potato crisps. Now how’s that for originality? For what it’s worth, it seems to click.
2. Matthew Morrison
The Glee star swears by Lubriderm to maintain the softness of his sexy curls (and perhaps moisturize it?). Far from making his hair look greasy, the product seems to work as (Matthew) advertised, with a simple touch test, done by a surprised female host in one of his interviews, to confirm it.
3. DJ Pauly D
The Jersey Shore housemate, winner of two consecutive Teen Choice Awards for Best Male TV Reality Show Star, maintains his signature ‘Blowout’ hairstyle with a combination of blow drying, applying generous amounts of his favorite hair gel, Spiker, a 15-second hair spray and finally a touch-and-go to achieve the familiar soft spikes that line the sides of his head. Sounds complicated? As one observer blurted out on YouTube, “he spends way more time on his hair than I do – and I’m a girl.”
4. Travis Clark
If you think Pauly D’s technique requires written instructions for you to pull off, you might want to try something much simpler; something like We The Kings’ singer Travis Clark’s. So what’s his secret to keeping his hair perfect each and every time? He never washes it.
5. David Beckham
The soccer star gained notoriety with the press by wearing several outlandish hairstyles over the course of his illustrious career, but this latest revelation takes the cake: all those quirky ‘dos were cut by the man himself. “It’s a spur of the moment thing,” David quips unabashedly, when asked where he gets the ideas behind his hair makeovers.

6. Zac Efron
The High School Musical star elevates bed hair to an art form all its own, by “sleeping on it”: a quick shower before going to bed, some towel drying the next morning, and voila! Bed hair that’s willing to stay all day long.
7. Eli Roth
The ebullient gore-film director’s trademark messy hair isn’t due to all that fake blood and guts getting into it. Rather, he credits his spikes to good Tancho pomade.
8. Cristiano Ronaldo
Real Madrid’s star, Ronaldo likes those creams and hair straighteners that ex-squeeze Nereida uses, even enlisting the buxom model to help him apply the stuff.
9. Robert Pattinson
When before the Twilight Saga hunk nonchalantly shrugs off questions about his ‘vampire’ hairdo (saying that he simply eschews washing it), on the films’ sets his stylists treat his hair to ample helpings of Redken mousse. ‘Undead’ hair, anyone?
10. Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake admits that, when it comes to hair care, he opts to go the natural way: a shampoo every ten days, with no washings in-between. Far from being stingy, the multi-awarded singer lets his natural scalp oil doing the job.
So there you have it, stars hair secrets straight out of their dressing rooms. If you’re at a loss giving your hair some identity, perhaps you should try adopting one of these star-proven routines and see the result.
