As they say, “Happy wife, happy life.” When Tammy Muniz’s client Sean came in with pictures of Ryan Gosling in hand, she knew she had to trim up his long hair and give him a bit more of a GQ-worthy look. The end result is a short-layered and chic new cut (to make that wife of his happy!).

Client Consultation Notes

Age: 45

Hair Length: Medium

Hair Texture: Normal

“Sean has been my client for about a year now. He came to his appointment with gorgeous curls and medium/shoulder length hair and pictures of Ryan Gosling, per his wife’s request. I was so excited to cut his hair! His handsome face is hidden under all those curls.”



Products used

  • Schwarzkopf OSiS+ Grip Extreme Hold Mousse
  • Pureology Colour Fanatic Multi-Benefit Leave-In Treatment
  • Matrix Style Link Matte Definer Beach Clay

Tools used 

  • Dyson Supersonic™ Hair Dryer
  • Round Brush

The Cut 

“We had so much fun all along the way trying different styles and looks throughout the cutting process. He's a ham and a good sport, even when I started with a mullet” added Tammy.

Step 1: Apply Schwarzkopf OSiS+ Grip Extreme Hold Mousse as a cutting lotion.

NOTE: To aid in hydration, Tammy also applied Pureology Colour Fanatic Multi-Benefit Leave-In Treatment prior to cutting.

Step 2:  Cut around the perimeter of the head to establish the shape.

Step 3: Begin layering.

NOTE: Tammy kept Sean’s hair shorter around and near the ears and nape of neck his and left the top longer to give versatility in styling.



The Style

“With his hair shorter he actually looks a lot Blake Shelton. He has such versatility with the ability to wear it smooth or curly. After creating his style I also trimmed up his beard before he walked out the door.”

Step 1: After the cut, I applied a gold ball-size amount of Schwarzkopf OSiS+ Grip Extreme Hold Mousse and then Pureology Colour Fanatic Multi-Benefit Leave-In Treatment. Blow dry and smooth hair using a round brush.

Step 2: Once hair is dry, apply a pea-sized amount of Matrix Style Link Matte Definer Beach Clay.

“I like to use Matrix Style Link Matte Definer Beach Clay to give him the option of a textured or controlled finish,” added Tammy. “This will give him the option to either wear it slicked back in a pompadour or tousled.”

Final Price:  $25
