Richard Gere

Ever since "American Gigolo" women have loved Richard Gere. Women wanted him, and men wanted to be him. He's proven himself to be a talented actor, and a concerned human.

Now that he's getting older, you can see the changes in his hair. The chestnut brown has given way to silver and now nearly-white. The haircut is a classic layered style, a cross between the long-layered cut and the traditional man's cut. The cut would be ideal for men with straight to mildly-wavy hair, and most hair textures.
The Cut: To cut the hair in this fashion, blunt cut the nape area and cut a wedge to the mid-point along the ears on the sides. Determine the desired length of the fringe area and use that as a guide length, raising the hair at the top, crown and upper halves of the sides to 180-degree elevation and cut at that length.
Once the upper sections are cut, use a 90-degree elevation and blend the lower halves of the sides and the back by cutting layers using a vertical cutting angle with the elevation. You can use a razor tool or a point-cutting technique to add texture to the style if desired.
The Style: After shampooing and conditioning, the hair should be sprayed with leave-in conditioner and styling product. At this point, you should use your blow-dryer and dry the hair, directing the airflow in the direction of the hair's growth and slightly back from the face. Use a round brush to direct the hair and add a bend and curve to the hair as desired. Mist the nearly dried hair with hairspray and gently scrunch to add definition and control frizz.
