Chris Evans has been at the forefront of teenage girls’ fantasies since his iconic role in Not Another Teen Movie, wherein he plays the character of Jake Wyler, a womanizing high school jock – all set to become Prom King and all the royalties which come with that level of handsomeness.
Therefore it doesn’t surprise anyone that men envy him and want so badly to be like him. In this article, you will find all the information you need about Chris Evans, and some hairstyle inspiration, from young Chris himself!
Who is Chris Evans?
Chris Evan’s net worth is $50 million. He hails from Boston, Massachusetts, where he was born and raised in Sudbury by a dentist father and an artistic director/dancer mother. He has three siblings – two elder sisters named Carly and Shanna, and a younger brother called Scott. If you are wondering about Chris’ wonderful heredity, it is notable that he is half Irish on his mother’s side, and equal quarters British and German on his father’s. This wonderful concoction of ancestry is an indicator of where he gets his dashing looks from.
Chris and his siblings were raised as Catholic practitioners, and received a public school education. He later moved to New York City and enrolled himself at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, where he inculcated his hobby of acting, into a full time and paying profession. He made his directorial debut in 2014 with his dramatic cinematic experience, “Before We Go”.
His Broadway debut took place in 2018, when he starred in a production of Lobby Hero.
The actor stands at 6 feet tall and has a varying weight, which fluctuates as his roles require him to lose and gain weight to bring that extra something into his acting. His ability to switch from a naughty grin to an astute demeanour is what sets him apart. His most notable work as the Marvel Comics character – Captain America – has really served to put him on the map internationally. At 37 years of age, Chris has a huge fan following among the ladies, and also among comic book enthusiasts who love to see him reprise his role as their beloved comic hero. He has also played the role of the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four movie franchises, where his fantastic acting led the way to success.
His love life has not been devoid of stars, as he has been known to date Jessica Biel, Jenny Slate, Lilly Collins and Elisabeth Olsen. Most recently, he has had an on again, off again relationship with comedienne Jenny Slate. However, otherwise, Chris is a relatively private celebrity, choosing carefully the details he wants to share with the world and the paparazzi.
A liberal democrat, Evans has been especially vocal about his views on the legalization of same sex marriages in the USA, and takes a strong political stand whenever necessary. Notably, Evans was quite vocal on his views with regard to bullying by peers, in school, of younger children etc. This only attributes real life hero traits to his image of wimpy guy turned superhero from Captain America.
Chris Evans – Captain America’s Mane
Chris Evans is a natural brunette. This takes away heavily from his blue-eyed, blond boy look, but only explains his versatility when it comes to changing up his look with different hair shades.
His hair type is ambiguous, with soft undertones and an ease of styling. The typical haircut he has maintained for most of his years as a Hollywood A-lister has been surprisingly boyish, switching between close cropped buzz hair, and slightly longer locks. At best, his hair type is straight, and smooth, and without much frizz. For the best guide to getting that Chris Evans, fresh look, you must first figure out what Chris has been doing to his hair in the past.
Here are some of the hairstyles Chris Evans has sported over the years!
Boyhood and Chris Evans as a Child
#1: The Baby Bowl
As a very young child, Chris Evans was a cute kid who didn’t mind flashing his pearly whites to everyone. His blond and brown hair which is naturally straight can be seen as being a part of his overall look, and can we just say what an adorable child he made!
#2: Vintage Yearbook Chic
A young Chris Evans who was blissfully unaware of his future destiny to be a celebrity, listened to mother, and kept his hair parted to one side, at the risk of leaving a strand or two around the face. Although this photo is relatively old, Evans has hardly changed, and his signature smirk is paired with every look he has dominated.
Teenage Years, the Rise of Evans as Jake Wylee
#3: Beach Boy Blond Part
If his life were a beach party, which it very well could have been, Evans would have fit right in! He sported medium length hair which finished right at the base of the top part of the ears. This cute look was a beachy summer sun blond highlighted, brunette time in Evans’ life. He seems to have topped the look and authenticate it by wearing a middle part in his hair and beads in his neck.
#4: Spikey Mid Length Needles
As a teenager, Evans was seen sporting the typical boyband look of the era. Here he can be seen with medium length hair, swept to the back, but dishevelled. The classic upturned spikes of the era are on display.
#5: Bieber Bowl Before It Was Cool
As a young boy, Chris sported different hairstyles on the red carpet as well. His bowl cut was a look which is comparable to the modern Justin Bieber front fringe haircut. However, Evans’ take on it is slightly different and puts a boyish spin on it. His clean shaven face makes it possible for him to look like he couldn’t care less about the world!
#6: Casual Jock Short Hair
The jock Jake Wyler look really worked for Chris Evans as it accentuated his boyish charm, and traditional All American Boy attitude. He had his hair coloured blond and then pushed around to make him look nonchalant and also neat. This look was a swoon worthy haircut and is something Evans is maintaining to this day!
#7: Full Head Boy Cut
Around the era of Not Just Another Teen Movie, Evans sported longer sideburns that one would expect in this day and age. His hair was a beautiful, natural brunette, and was styled similarly to his signature style. Besides that, the clean shaven look and sideburns made him look intense, sort of like an Edward Cullen type character.
#8: Short Hair, Front Spiked
This photo from Evans’ high school yearbook proves just one thing: Stars – They are just like us. But even Chris Evans’ dorky awkward look is a smart nod to the fashion of the time. His hair was short in length and he utilized his short, yet stark hair by making upward facing spikes.
Adulthood and Red Carpet Evans
#9: Goatee and Moustache Look
A Goatee and moustache look that Evans was seen wearing in the mid 2000’s amid whispers of him having taken up the role of Captain America. He preferred to keep both moustache, and beard neatly trimmed and out of the way, closely cropped to the face. Pair this with short cropped hair, a la Brad Pitt from Fight Club, and you have a winner!
#10: Combed Over and Full Beard
Chris Evans cleans up well, and when he does, especially for a red carpet, he looks like a million bucks! His slicked back hairdo, with a side part just seal the look off. However, what makes this look stand out even more is his facial hair. His stubble covered cheek, chin and moustache may look overgrown, but it is also carefully manicured to perfection.
#11: Growing Buzzcut and Slight Stubble
Another one of the classic Hollywood styles for the red carpet is the stubble paired with a nonchalant, unkempt hairdo. And Evans embodies it perfectly. His dishevelled hair along with the lazy spikes sure make for a visual treat.
#12: Captain America First Look
The earlier and later Avengers films saw Evans in different hairstyles. The first of these blond transitions is this look. It consists of a smooth taper from the back and the sides, while conservatively keeping the front a little longer, to create a false fringe towards one side. Now if this doesn’t spell classic gentleman to you, I don’t know what will!
#13: Brunette Bombshell
A brunette Chris is not a sight easily spotted, but once looked at, it cannot be unseen. The fresh, neat cut with clean edges is a signature Chris Evans look, complete with a cute, yet naughty grin!
#14: Slicked Back Look
This slick back look is one for the ages. It is a James Bond inspired look which can go a long way if you have the hair length for it. Here we can see Chris with longer hair on the front and shorter lengths at the back. He has simply used styling wax or gel, and brushed the hair all the way back.
#15: Combed in Blond Streak
The classic comb overs that Chris has embodied are too many in number to count. However, this is one of his signature looks from the last decade or so. The blond streak is a reminder of Captain America movies to come, and the simple washing, conditioning, drying, and styling with hair serum is a great way to achieve a casual do with a funky twist.

#16: Comb over Blond
Another remnant of the Captain America franchise with Marvel comics is this totally platinum blond bleached look, which Evans sports with panache and grace. Obviously styling heavily bleached or treated hair is difficult, but this just goes to show how convenient it can be with some serum, a hair drier, and a good brush to achieve a look worthy of a superhero.
#17: Side swept Highlights
With the same treated hair, Evans made his paparazzi debut in a casual, yet swoon worthy look. This time he traded in his spikes with some well cultured side fringes. This haircut consisted of almost buzz cut hair at the back, and a clear gradient. At the top of the forehead, longer hair crowned his dimpled chin.
#18: Dark Spikes
As an actor, Evans can pride himself on his ability to get in and out of character so quickly. With his blond hair transitioning out, Evans was able to maintain his sticking out kind of spikes, despite what many believed to be the stagnation point of his career. However, his pale skin and deep hair, sharp eyebrows and clear lines complement his personality as a celebrity!
#19: Blow-dried Quiff
The most doable hairstyle Chris has adopted yet is the medium length hair and quiff. The quiff is a hairstyle wherein the hair in the front of your head are pushed upwards and blow-dried in the same shape. Evans pairs it with medium length hair, and a tapering gradient at the back as usual.
#20: Broadway Lobby Hero
For his role in the Broadway production of Lobby Hero, Chris was seen out and about, sporting this moustache. And honestly, we are living for it! His look is slightly creepy, but only in a way our beloved Chris Evans can pull it off!
The versatility of Chris Evans background, upbringing, ancestry and even roles has made him a household name, and we would be lying if we said we didn’t totally see it coming! More power to you, Jake Wyler – more power to you!
