Actor Orlando Bloom is something of a chameleon in both his on screen roles and off screen persona. This devoted vegetarian is constantly changing up his look, but he always takes advantage of his naturally curly hair. You can style your hair in the same way by using pomade and a few special products.

- Moderately Easy
Things you need
- Shampoo for curly hair
- Conditioner for curly hair
- Curl enhancing serum
- Gel spray (optional)
Trim hair to chin length just like Bloom. While he sometimes wears it longer or shorter for a film role, off screen he wears it chin length.
Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner for curly hair. This conditions the hair and gets it ready for styling. Curl Life and Redken both make excellent products for curly hair when you're trying to imitate Bloom's look at home.
Use a small amount of curl enhancing serum if your hair isn't naturally curly like Bloom's hair is. The curl enhancer also works on naturally curly hair. Aveda Be Curly is a top pick for this part of Bloom's look.
Add a mousse with medium hold like Vigorol to the hair while still wet. Run your hands through the hair to make sure all areas have some mousse on them.
Let the hair air dry. A blow dryer will make the hair look crunchy and fake, while air drying makes it look more natural like Bloom's.
Rub a pomade like Magic Move through your hands and then run them through the hair. The pomade sets the look and makes the hair look shiny.
Scrunch up the tips and edges of the hair with your hands to finish the look. You can also add a small amount of gel spray like the one from Redken to completely set the hair.
Tips and warnings
- To get the perfect Orlando Bloom look, you should skip the styling and add a fedora, beret or some other type of hat. Bloom sometimes runs gel through the edges of his hair to enhance the curls and then tops it off with a hat.
