Seth Rogen, like his long-time friend Jonah Hillrecently went bleach blonde and it suits him. Like LA native Hill: Canadian-born Rogen really seems to dress for Southern California bliss, and it shows.
Take, for example, Rogen’s recent smoke break outfit: a sunny one Fine patchwork shirt, relaxed terracotta slacks, slip-on espadrilles and a very de rigueur Ian Charms necklace (a favorite of Justin Bieber and Pete Davidson). It is the typical relaxed outfit of someone who in 2022 likes to be a little baked and make gloomy pottery in his SoCal bungalow. There’s nothing like dressing for the job you want! (And have.)
And if you want to achieve some dingy SoCal polish, the bleached buzz cut can work wonders. Even if a long list of famous supporters – Ye, Bieber, Pharrell, Joe Jonas, Zayn Malik, Chris Messina, Dylan O’Brien and dad and sons Beckham among them—helped cement the Slim Shady blonde buzz as a bona fide 2020s trend, that kind of public-facing spread makes it seem like a fun thing, too. (“For women it’s a trend, but for guys it’s a bucket list or a rite of passage look,” David Stanko, a hair color consultant and colorist at Licari Cutler salon in New York, told GQ in 2017.) The ability to see the style on a variety of (famous) scalps means more guys can imagine it on their own scalp. If Seth can do it, maybe you can too.
