Here's Why Leonardo DiCaprio Has Never Had A Bad Hair Day

And why "The Revenant" was so influential on the world of hair.

The Changing Face Of Leonardo DiCaprio!

How is that even the same person?! #MPOriginal

Want to look like Leonardo DiCaprio? Buy a lot of pomade.

It appears that the key to the actor's style is consistency. DiCaprio sported floppy blonde locks as a teen, but ever since starring in "Catch Me If You Can" in 2002, his off-camera look has defaulted to that film's slicked-back look -- no matter how long he grows out his hair to play a character.

It also helps if you can be born with an impressive widow's peak, cultivate a permanent yacht tan and have a personal hairstylist on set every day.

Whether it's short, parted down the middle, combed to the side, or long (the hair he grew out for his role as Hugh Glass in "The Revenant" partially spawned the man bun era) it's almost like the 41-year-old has never had a bad hair day. Even including, dare we say, his Arnie Grape days.

Here, we investigate. Check out the major shift in 2002:
