The Chalamet: why Timothée’s haircut is the hottest style for women this winter

Name: The Chalamet.

Age: About a year.

Appearance: Dark, wild, full of body.

Is this a wine? Nope. It’s a hairstyle.

Oh, you mean like that young French actor guy … Timothée Chalamet? His father’s French, but he’s American.

He was nominated for an Oscar for that film … Call Me By Your Name.

That’s right. Can’t picture him. Well, he’s 22, but looks younger. He’s thin and sort of beautiful in a child-like way.

And is he a good actor? Yes, but that isn’t the point. Last year was undoubtedly his breakthrough for his acting, but the real discovery for many people was his hair.

What does it look like? Long and messy. Think Paul McGann in Withnail and I.

And that’s a big deal, is it? Oh yes. There was a GQ cover story in March all about it. They called it “once-in-a-generation” hair.

GQ needs to reconsider its priorities. Perhaps. But according to New York magazine’s fashion site, The Cut, achieving the Chalamet is now almost a craze among gay women.

I achieve my hair by sometimes washing it. This is a more complicated process.

OK. Where do I start? By being born with Timothée Chalamet’s DNA, 22 years ago.

All right. And after that? Thom Priano, the stylist who oversaw GQ’s historic Chalamet, instructed him to wash with R+Co Analog foaming conditioner the night before the shoot.

Uh huh. Just let me get a pen. Then, on the day, Priano used a shine and grooming creme. “I didn’t need to build up his hair,” he explained. “I needed to take it down.”

Crazy. I just didn’t see that coming. So there’s a place where they interview the hairdressers for other interviewees now? That’s The Cut again.

Why are people so desperate for this hairstyle? “Timothée Chalamet is not a hypermasculine sort of dude, so I think it’s a haircut you can adopt,” said one woman, Kari Sonde. “It does walk that androgynous line – it’s a very soft haircut. It’s gentle and romantic.”

Is it romantic to copy your hairstyle off a celebrity? Oh, I don’t think that’s a problem any more.

Why not? Because Chalamet’s cut his off.

Quelle désastre! Since September, he’s been seen with a much shorter bowl cut. Apparently, it was done for his most recent film, Beautiful Boy.

How many more haircuts must be ruined before we ban acting altogether? Change takes time.

Do say: “Call My Hair By His Name.”

Don’t say: “Cut!”
