Owen Wilson Goes Through His Signature Hair Styles For Roles
Owen Wilson’s hair has just landed its biggest role yet — being the newest face for hair and body care brand California Naturals. The Starsky & Hutch actor, 55, is the brand’s new “Chief Shampoo Officer.” Wilson is also an investor and advisor for the company. The company’s products are paraben and sulfate-free. Parabens are commonly used as preservatives per the FDA. There is limited evidence that parabens threaten human health. According to the National Library of Public Medicine, recent studies have shown that parabens can interfere with the normal function of hormones, cause skin irritation, and negatively impact fertility and reproductive organs.
As for sulfates, they can damage certain types of hair and may cause skin irritation in some people. Sulfate-free shampoo is recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology for people with rosacea because the ingredient is found to irritate skin with rosacea. Others suffering from skin conditions like eczema, contact dermatitis, or sensitive skin should also avoid sulfates for the same irritation. Dry and fine hair should also avoid sulfates, as the sudsy effects of sulfate shampoo can strip out too much of the natural oils needed to keep your strands healthy. Additionally, sulfates are known to cause hair frizz.
We’re Hair For It
With Wilson’s iconic shaggy blonde hair always looking fabulous, his starring as the hair care company’s “Chief Shampoo Officer” is a perfect fit. Wilson tells People that his hair’s “dream role” would be in Broadway’s Hair. However, he and his hair don’t always see “eye to eye on our career.” Of 2005’s Wedding Crashers, but his hair was “really holding out to do a remake of Shampoo.” Meanwhile, Wilson said the wig he wore in 2023’s Paint was a work of art, but he doesn’t think anyone will go “racing to the salon asking for a perm to recreate it.” However, there was one iconic role Wilson says his hair out-shined his performance — 2001’s Zoolander. The actor said those sexy, blonde, shoulder-length waves were a “career hair high.”
Though Wilson is still a natural blonde (we think), he said going gray via a wig for Loki was an experience, and one that he’s sure he’ll live out in “real life” at some point. When he’s not filming, Wilson is low-maintenance and prefers to air-dry his hair. For an event, he tells the stylist to closely resemble his “normal day” hair.
