Keeping it classic! Jared Leto continued to turn heads with his lucious locks on the 2014 Oscars red carpet. Instead of sporting his edgy "man bun," the Dallas Buyers Club star, 42, let his wavy hair cascade down to his shoulders. 

Leto lit up the red carpet in a white blazer, black pants, and deep red bowtie with a matching pocket square. With his mother Constance Leto and older brother Shannon Leto by his side, Jared looked confident and proud heading into the 86th annual Academy Awards.

The former My So-Called Life star emerged as the unexpected hair hero of the 2014 awards show season when he wore a "man-bun" to the 2014 Golden Globes. However, for the SAGs and Critics' Choice Awards, Leto styled his ombre hair into smooth waves.

Before the Oscars, Leto's longtime stylist, Chad Lusero, discussed the challenges of styling Leto's long hair. "It's really important that he doesn't look like a woman," he said. "It's been hard to have him not end up on the 'best hair' lists — and that definitely hasn't been our intention. We've had all of these actresses, like Olivia Wilde and Rachel Bilson and Julia Roberts, asking about his hair. He has amazing hair, so it's kind of inevitable."
