Ryan Gosling’s Hairstyles Over the Years


Join us and browse through the different hairstyles of Ryan Gosling over the years. Take a look at the various ways that this multi-talented Canadian actor and musician wore his sandy blond hair and find inspiration to try one.

Ryan Thomas Gosling is one of those few people in the world that knew what they want to be when they grow up and actually did it. Movies had been a big part of Ryan Gosling’s persona ever since he was a small kid. It is this influence in him that led to being suspended from school when he tried to replicate a scene from Sylvester Stallone’s First Blood (1982). Gosling told Maclean’s Magazine, “When I was in first grade I watched First Blood, and I filled my Fisher-Price Houdini kit with steak knives and brought them to school and started throwing them at kids in recess,”

This incident didn’t deter him from still pursuing a career in show business. He eventually got his first big break in 1993 when he became a cast member of the Mickey Mouse Club where he sang, danced and acted alongside talented kids that would grow up to be famous artists. Ryan Gosling held his own with these other kids and even stole the show at times with his confident smile and beautiful side-parted blond hair that made him one of the fan favorites.

Since those early days, there was nowhere but up for the talented actor who took his craft seriously. A testament to this is the list of roles he got where he wowed everyone with his acting chops across multiple genres. His role as the hopeless romantic “Noah, Jr.” in “The Notebook” was the performance that really solidified his name among women. He effectively made them fall in love with his character, not just with his acting, but also with his gorgeous sandy blond hair. This resulted in multiple offers to be “Sexiest Man Alive” which he refused multiple times.

Nowadays, Ryan Gosling is still on the rise with serious roles and those come with its own different versions of his beautiful hair. Join us in going through some of Ryan Gosling’s hairstyles over the years.
