29 June 2020
From heartthrob to dad, Brad Pitt has evolved, but remains as fierce as ever.

During the 1990s, it would have been hard to not find a teenage girl's bedroom wall unadorned with a Brad Pitt poster. The megastar got his breakthrough after taking on the role of JD in Thelma and Louise in 1991. It cemented his dreamboat status instantly.

Pitt has gone on to take on various roles and throughout three decades, he has reinvented his looks. There's no denying the man oozes plenty of style and you really can't blame him for his affinity to accessories such as hats and sunglasses! Since we'll be seeing Pitt in this week's Sunday night movie, Ad Astra, we look back on some of his more memorable hairstyles.

With that structured jawline and smouldering stare, it was apparent his star would rise quickly. Note the hat, mullet-like hair, all synonymous with the 80s.

When Pitt dated Gwyneth Paltrow from 1994 to 1997, they were thee 'it couple'. Cue the 90s curtain hair-do, which actually quite suited him. Here they are attending The Devil's Own premiere on 13 March 1997.

By the 2000s, he sported shorter hair and experimented with moustaches. At the Los Angeles premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on 8 December 2008, his hair was darker and shorter, with a questionable choice in facial hair.

Pitt has never been one to shy away from long hair, even when it was becoming peppered with grey, which added a greater air of sophistication as seen here at the Killing Them Softly premiere on 22 May 2012 in Cannes, France during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival.

By early 2020 when he won the Oscar for the Supporting Role award for Once upon a Time ... in Hollywood, his hair colour was lighter but he kept the length, with subtle stubble.
