  1. 1

    Pick a hair color like Zac. His natural hair color is close to blond, but he tends to favor different shades of brown with and without highlights or black.

  2. 2

    Get a textured hair cut. Zac's hair is razor cut with several layers added to frame the face. The style can be cut with the bangs naturally falling over the forehead ,and the back is left in pieces.

  3. 3

    Grow out the style since the longer it gets the shaggier it looks. Zac has been known to let his hair keep growing between movie roles, and the sides often grow out to fall over the ears.

  4. 4

    Style with gel wax. The product adds shine and hold, but allows the hair to be easily manipulated into the shaggy finished look Zac Efron prefers. Apply a small amount of gel wax to hands and warm for a few seconds.

  5. 5

    Rub product into hair and scalp. Use your blow dryer to finger comb. Let your fingers separate layers and sweep the bangs to the side. Add more gel wax as necessary to play up the texture of the cut.

  6. 6

    Spray a light mist of hairspray around the hair to seal in that glossy look.
