Wavy-, curly-, fuzzy-haired men, who can you look to in your time of need—which is every morning, when you do battle with the natural flow of your hair, trying to make it go this way, when it only wants to go every which way but that. 

For your consideration, actor Jericho Rosales and his strong curl game and food-preneur Erwan Huessaff and his wavy 'dos. Both know how to convert the thick nests on their heads into grooming assets, amazing crowns that very much define their looks.   

But who, between the two, has a better head of hair? Let us assess this very important  matter through proper and extensive research (creepily scrolling through Instagram). 

Who will be our ultimate wild-hair hero?

1| All Natural

The professional eater chows down on an awesome pile of uni and then reports that it is “just perfect,” because he wants to make us suffer. His bedhead is in full effect: high and thick with voluminous waves. Maybe he used a little product. Maybe not. (We also can't decide if his papery cardigan is great or weird—but that's for another time.)

Okay, these are serious curls and the overall fullness is epic. He probably didn't wash his hair the night before—which really is the trick for a good hair day. Natural oil is your friend. 

Scorecard
+3 Erwan for hair height, thickness, and waves
+5 Erwan for uni
-6 Erwan for taunting us with uni
+3 Jericho for epic curliness
+1 Jericho for natural oils
+1 Jericho for accessorizing

2| Styled and Shellacked

When his hair is tempered by comb and product, the result is a sleek but slightly messy style that is perfect for anything, including the task of eating bowls of soba.

On the actor, styled means working with the flow. His curls are still intact but they are transformed into structured crests. Very cool.

Scorecard 
+2 Erwan for wavy hair taming ability
+1 Erwan for soba
+2 Jericho for curly hair enhancement

3| Moody and Unkempt

Sometimes deflation and stringiness happen, but these just fit a rainy-in-a-foreign-city mood—and we all know, it's all about mood.

Even from faraway, you can still discern a fantastic nest of curls that, because of natural light, appears like a halo, as if the gods themselves are shining a spotlight on it. 

Scorecard 
+1 Erwan for that transparent Japanese umbrella
+2 Erwan for looking like he's really looking over his shoulder
+2 Jericho for promoting foot power 
+1 Jericho for an expertly executed plandid (planned candid)

4| Post Game

If you still have good hair after running, climbing, and crawling your way through an obstacle-filled race, you are a winner in life.

He is kicking sand in our direction because we will never be able to recreate this natural hair moment. 

Scorecard 
+1 Erwan for the fitspo
+3 Erwan for three times the fitspo
-5 Erwan for making us feel like slobs
+1 Jericho for the fitspo
+1 Jericho for black and white
-5 Jericho for making us miss the beach

6| The Helmet 

Cool vid, bro, but your hair is looking too solid in the still.

An actual helmet. 

Scorecard
+2 Erwan for old-school pompadour action
-1 Erwan for that black mass on his head
+1 Jericho for motorcycle 

.

7| Wet And Profound

And this is why it's better to have not-straight hair. When wet, it still looks alright.

Ditto.  

Scorecard
+9 Erwan for staring into the soul of a pearl oyster—and then eating it. 
+2 Jericho for staring into the soul of the ocean.

8| Erwan Power Up: 'Stache Action 

Know what takes good hair to the next level? A lip caterpillar. But really, Erwan's wavy hair makes its best appearance here. Perfect definition that underscores the natural way his hair flows, a style that evokes easiness and control at the same time, and good height—all aces in our book.

Scorecard 
+6 For angst
+3 For that jacket

9| Jericho Power Up: Meme Me

You know you've reached hair god status when your hair has a life of its own. Respect the mad curls.  

Scorecard 
+9 For being in on the joke
+3 For converting men to the curly side

The Winner

According to our very accurate scoring system, this grooming tilt comes to a dead heat (we're not doing the math!). For their great hair game, Erwan and Jericho both deserve your adulation. Look to their curly-messy-wavy hair and go with the flow.
