Sean Penn Short Straight Formal Hairstyle





Added: 10th November 2010
Sean Penn kept his hairstyle neat and tidy for the 81st Annual Academy Awards. The back was tapered into his head and blended into uniform layers through the sides and back- giving this look plenty of body and height. A little wax or molding gum is all that's needed to re-create this look.
