Ted Lasso’s Hair and Makeup Designer Breaks Down Ted’s Mustache

Ted Lasso does love a locker room — and his mustache. Jason Sudeikis, who portrays the lovable AFC Richmond soccer coach, grows out his facial hair for the Apple+ comedy, which is currently in season 3 of production.

“There’s pictures of Jason out and about. You can see it doesn’t look exactly like Ted, but it is mainly him. I add to it a little bit. We spend a lot of time on his ‘stache. We’re very aware,” the show’s hair and makeup designer, Nicky Austin, exclusively tells Us Weekly. “We don’t want it to become out of control. It’s every day in the chair. It’s to get the Ted ‘stache to come out. Basically, we have to keep working on it. He does grow it. He grows it for the season every time. And then he gets rid of it when we finish usually.”

The ‘stache debuted when the series did in 2020, with Sudeikis, 46, also as its creator and executive producer. “He always comes back with a very supportive comment,” Austin says of the actor’s involvement in the look of the characters. “Sometimes even if he doesn’t want it, he’s like, ‘I love the thought that you put into it, but … Because he knows what these characters arcs gonna be. He knows where they’re gonna end up, which we all don’t. So I take my direction from him a lot of the time. He’s very involved in every aspect.”

Ted’s appearance hasn’t changed so much over the years compared to some of his players — more notably Jamie Tartt.

Phil [Dunster] is so up for change and I’ve always had this thing with Jamie where I knew his character’s gonna start off being a little bit of a — I don’t want to call him a wanker, but we do use that word on the show. And then we kind of see him mature a little bit. So he starts off with that ridiculous hairstyle that I think I based on a picture of [Cristiano] Ronaldo from years ago before he got taste. And then he moves back to Man City,” she explains. “And then after he has his row with his dad in season 2, he loses the hair band. So again, becoming a little bit more mature.”

And according to Austin, Jamie now has “a new look again” in season 3. “That’s gone out the window,” she says of his old image. “Jamie is a character who people perhaps don’t realize how different Phil is to Jamie. He’s not from Manchester. He doesn’t have an accent. He’s a London boy. The way he plays him — I just think he’s so brilliant that we had to just change his look completely. He couldn’t look like Phil. I had to do a whole development with him. And the tattoo and everything. I just wanted to turn him into a real character. Because he changes himself so much to become Jamie that I wanted to do that with his hair.”

Other actors are in the hair and makeup chair for a shorter amount of time, however. Take Brett Goldstein, for example, who plays Jamie’s former nemesis Roy Kent on screen.

“I think Roy stays the same pretty much. He’s one of our older characters in terms of how Jamie’s still a young premier footballer. Roy’s retired. He kind of knows where he is [in life],” Austin tells Us. “He’s such a handsome devil. I’d get in trouble if I changed Roy too much. But Jason felt was really important to show that when we see him first off in season 2, he’s not in a great place. And we showed that through his hair and makeup. And then you suddenly see this handsome devil come out of the makeup chair when he becomes a pundit. But no, I don’t really change Roy. He’s in and out of the chair. He’s 20 minutes. He’s a quick one. He’s a constant. He’s not gonna go for any tattoos anytime soon. He knows what he is. He’s happy with where he is. And he dresses in black. He wears the same clothes all the time. So, whereas Jamie, obviously he’s got his loud colors. He’s always trying to change himself. Roy Kent knows who he is, where he is in the world, and he just stays the same.”

The same can’t be said for Nate Shelley, played by Nick Mohammed. In the season 2 finale cliffhanger, it’s revealed that Nate transferred to rival team West Ham and showed off brand-new, white hair after a season of turmoil.

“It can happen that quickly. There are stories of people who literally have a shock, for example, they hear of a loved one suddenly getting sick, and they can literally go gray. … So actually, if you look at the timeline it actually has a bit of gray to his hair, and I dyed out to make him look younger in season 1. Then in season 2, as his character becomes angrier and moves over to the dark side a bit more, I started with it black and it started to become a little bit more gray,” Austin explains to Us. “And then as the anger is kind of overtaking him, Jason had this idea that he wanted him to lose the color in his hair. And it’s kind of — it’s a year, really, the progression of it. It just seems quicker because obviously we’ve only got 12 episodes, but the season’s passing through us and then that final shot is actually onto the next football season. It’s actually a few months later. So it’s actually the start. That last shot is actually the start of season 3 in terms of the timeline. It was a lot of work.”

Ted Lasso season 3 is reportedly set for a 2023 release. The series just picked up a whopping 20 Emmy nominations earlier this week.

Son of the Year! Drake Gets Mom Sandra’s Initials Tatted on His Face

Son of the year! Drake‘s newest tattoo is a sweet tribute to his mom Sandra Graham.

The rapper, 35, unveiled the design via Instagram on Thursday, August 11, sharing a carousel of images captioned, “Sandra Gale.”

The first photo of the slideshow is a zoomed-in image of Drake’s cheek with the initials “SG” inked just below the musician’s eye. (Also included in the montage of pics was a funny selfie of Drake’s dad Dennis Graham, posing in a paisley-adorned face mask and a matching button-up.)

The ink was done by Los Angeles-based tattooist, Nal. The artist posted a video of himself working on Drake’s face via Instagram. “The boi,” he captioned the post, tagging the Canada native. In the clip, the “Champagne Poetry” rapper is seen lounging with his eyes closed as Nal created the design.

This wouldn’t be Drake’s first dedication to Sandra, 62. In addition to his 2018 hit “Sandra’s Rose,” the Degrassi alum has a portrait of his mother on his back. The hitmaker also has ink that honors his son Adonis, his late uncle and grandma as well as two portraits of singer Sade on his torso. Elsewhere, Drake has a tribute to late singer Aaliyah and ink of Lil Wayne — who he credits for helping establish his rap career — on his arm.

Drake’s new addition comes after he hilariously trolled his dad over a tattoo the Tennessee native, 67, got of his son’s face back in 2017.

“@TheRealDennisG I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this we family,” Drake captioned the post shared on Monday, August 8. The ink, which was placed on Dennis’ shoulder, depicts a serious-looking Drake with a low haircut.

In the comments section, Dennis revealed he’s tried to get the tattoo fixed. “Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out, they’re hurting me,” he wrote. The Tennessee native added: “I love you and miss you.”

Drake’s hilarious confession also prompted a response from 2 Chainz and comedian Druski. “NA MAN,” Druski wrote. The “No Lie” rapper, 44, simply commented several laughing emojis.

‘Glamour’ Intern Mia Uzzell Is Obsessed With This Curl Gel for Finger Coils

Published

on

I hate to admit it, but I never really saw my natural hair during wash days growing up. By three-years-old, I had a relaxer and was committed to Sunday hot comb rituals, where my grandma warmed the sizzling tool on the stovetop to press out my roots. In middle school, extensions – haphazardly glued to my scalp—become my staple look to blend in with my predominantly white competitive cheer team. When I got to high school, lace front wigs were plastered across the front of my hairline twice a month, so I could always have the latest hairstyles.

Growing up in the South in a family of cosmetologists, weaves felt like a rite of passage. There was a pervasive internalized belief that Black natural hair was unmanageable, had no versatility, and couldn’t exist without being incessantly straightened. With every after-hours hair appointment in my family’s living room and 5 A.M. maintenance routine ahead of school, I wrestled with the concept that my natural hair was unworthy. 

When I got to college three years ago, I experienced the reckoning many Black women face with their natural hair: The infamous big chop. In my boyfriend’s college apartment, we took a pair of clippers and buzzed my hair down to a close-cropped cut. My neglected strands and years of exhausting insecurities fell in piles across the floor. 

Since then, my natural hair journey has come with its share of mental roadblocks. I relented from intimidating consumerism, which suggests that natural hair requires shelves of products. I realized how I’ve used protective styles to conceal rather than to protect, and had to shake my belief that my short 4C hair is the “ugly stage” of achieving a sky-scraping ‘fro. Wash days at the kitchen sink, often accompanied by my boyfriend’s reassuring assistance, have become a revolutionary act of self-love and a reminder that I can vault every challenge in this new phase of my life.

Below, the tried-and-true products that have helped me along the winding journey of loving my hair in its natural state.

Pre-Shampoo

I have low porosity hair, and learned that saturation and absorption of moisture is difficult along my hair shafts, which was paramount to understanding my wash day routine. The cleansing properties of most shampoos were often too harsh and left my hair feeling dry, even post-deep conditioning. Atop my stove, I melt an eyeballed mixture of shea butter and aloe vera gel fresh from my household plant. I apply the warm mixture to my hair and detangle it from tip to root with a Pattern Beauty’s wide-tooth comb. Overnight, the concoction lathers my strands to revitalize my natural oils and creates the perfect barrier to maintain luster and sheen for the next day’s wash.

Shampooing

I quickly discovered during shampoo sessions that I am, indeed, what my mother would call “tender-headed.” Years of unaddressed split ends mean my coils have been weakened and are susceptible to tangling into knots. This is where positive affirmations come in, since my knots trigger old emotions that make me feel that my hair is unnecessarily demanding. I’m often reminded of the common Southern saying “You wash clothes, you shampoo hair.” In essence, it means that hair is complex and requires its own method of care.
