11 Times Jared Leto Had Better Hair Than You

It's no secret that Jared Leto's hair is just about the most beautiful thing to grace the public eye since Kate Winslet's entire look in Titanic. The musician and award-winning actor's locks are so beautiful, in fact, that they inspire genuine, breakdown-worthy jealousy within my soul. Whether he's on a red carpet, selling a fanny pack, or selfie-ing it up on Instagram, Leto's hair always remains impeccable.

Considering the 43-year-old 30 Seconds to Mars frontman changes his hair so often, it's pretty hard to believe that his strands would always remain so on point. But no matter what color or cut he's rocking, those locks just stay flawless. Most of us have experimented with chopping our hair off and growing it back, trying to highlight it in our parents' bathrooms, or delving into the pastel trend at full force. In my experience, the experimentation doesn't always pay off. For Leto, however, it sometimes seems like his hair simply is. It exists in its own dimension, free of the styling or cutting woes the rest of us have to endure.

In an effort to admire the beauty that is his hair, here are just 11 times Jared Leto had better locks than you. Take a moment to grab a box of tissues: You might need them.

1. Highlighted


Leto's hair was perfectly styled on the night he accepted the Best Supporting Actor award for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club at the 2014 Oscars. Would we expect anything less of him on such an important evening?

2. Middle Part

When announcing the winner of the Best Supporting Actress award at the 2015 Oscars, Leto went for a similar hairstyle, officially proving there is no middle part that could ever challenge his middle part. Just look at those loose, golden waves and tell me you're not drooling.

3. Bleached Blonde

What better way to debut a new look than with a selfie? Leto knows the value of a good Instagram photo, especially when you have a new 'do. His platinum bleached blonde locks are a huge change from his dark brown, flowing hair, but still just as gorgeous.

4. Shoulder-Length

Even at an awkward length, Leto still finds a way to make his hair extremely enviable. Those strategically placed highlights and ombre details are super pretty, and I'm really considering bringing this photo into my next salon appointment.

5. Wavy

I like to assume that Leto's hair dries wavy naturally, with hardly any frizz or fly-aways to tame. As much as I love you, Alessandra Ambrosio, your hair has nothing on Leto's.

6. Behind The Ears

Hidden under a hat and pushed behind his ears, this hairstyle wouldn't look good on just anyone. I bet he didn't even have to do anything to his hair to get this chic look.

7. Pulled Back


I often style my hair out of my face and into a ponytail or bun, simply for the convenience of it. No matter how pretty or perfect a ponytail or bun I create, though, it will never look this good.

8. Bearded

You may have seen an appearance or two of Jared Leto's beard on this list already, but considering how magnificent it really is, I thought it deserved its own place. Hair is hair, so there's no need to discriminate against beard hair — especially when it's as splendid as Leto's.

9. Asymmetrical

This is another early 2000s haircut that Leto could still rock today if he wanted. He wrote on the caption that it was taken 17 years ago. So not only does he have perfect hair, but he also doesn't age.

10. Short And Spiky

Here's another throwback photo from the start of Leto's career with 30 Seconds to Mars when his mane was equally marvelous.

11. Green

A lot of us want to try out the rainbow hair trend, but Leto's green 'do really set the bar high. I would trade my locks for his bright, highlighter green hair in a minute.

Oh, to have even one strand of hair from Leto's head.
