Jake Gyllenhaal: His Best Hair?

Published in: Hair, Just For Fun


Dear Jake,

Did you get the card I sent for turkey day (gobble gobble!)? I hope so. 🙂 Yours still hasn’t arrived, but I’m sure it’s on its way. The Post Office has been busy as of late…

I was surprised to read about you and Reese. Thank goodness the rumors were untrue, but I’m here if you ever need a shoulder.

Yours always,


In my frantic search to corroborate the breakup rumors, I couldn’t help but notice the breadth of Jake’s hairstyles over the years. He makes bangs look so very fetching!


If/when I earn that spot on Jeopardy! and “Jake Gyllenhaal’s hair” comes up as a topic, I think I’ll be prepared.

Jakeypoo factoids

  • Born Jacob Benjamin Gyllenhaal in Los Angeles (December 19, 1980)
  • Family has deep Hollywood ties. Dad’s a director, Mom’s a screenwriter, and big sis Maggie’s a star.
  • Enjoys woodworking and cooking
  • Acting debut was in the 1991 film City Slickers
  • Graduated from high school in 1998 and then went on to attend Columbia University, studying Eastern religions and Philosophy; dropped out to pursue film career.
  • Feature films include Brokeback Mountain, The Day After Tomorrow, Donnie Darko (my JG fave!) and more

P.S. Jake, I know you’re busy, but before I go, may I ask a favor? I’ve noticed you’ve been growing out your hair for Prince of Persia (due out next spring). Please, please condition at least once/week. Split ends = not cute. 🙂

Which of Jake's hairstyles do you like best?

    i have a hard time focusing on his hair when those eyes are staring me down!! *swoons like a 13 year old*

  3. Christina says:

    I’m sad that his hair can accurately be described with the word “bangs.” I know it’s a technical term, but… it sounds sad on a man. “Fringe” wouldn’t be an improvement, so I guess we’re stuck.

  4. Tatiana says:

    Karen! Thank you for that Jakey collage, it made my Hump Day that much more…humpier! Heh heh. I can’t wait for the “Brothers” movie because I have crushes on Jakey, Tobey, and Natalie Portman!

  5. haha you’re funny, Karen. I love everything except 2 and 3. But I’m sure when I see Prince of Persia, I’d end up loving 3 as well.

    Doesn’t he have the most wonderful eyes? *sigh*

    I voted for number 6, but number 4 was close! I’ve loved Jake for a long time. He’s such a good actor and easy on the eyes,too. He’ll have a long career, no doubt and he seems like he would make a good boyfriend. 🙂

    I’ve voted number six but I like number 4 too. 🙂

    With those eyes – who cares about his hair? 😀
    But still, I chose #6. He’s really cute :love:

  10. Mariah says:

    Hands down, number 6! He’s adorably cute! But then, sometimes he looks just like my cousin, and that freaks me out!

    And LOL, #2, he is like 15!! XD

  11. Jenna says:

    He’s so pretty. I actually like the one with the “elvin sideburns” (though I think that’s not an accurate description!). I think it’s the best hair length for him. Not too short, not too long.

  12. Fabienne says:

    I love 6 & 8, but his sexxxiest picture (face esp) is 7. Gotta love the mug!!!

  13. Rebecca says:

    Oh my god, I had the biggest crush on Jake Gyllenhaal after seeing Donnie Darko! #7 is making me remember why… could we pan the camera down just a little please? 😛

  14. Marisol says:

    oh em gee! When I saw #5, I immediately thought of Edward Cullen. hahaha I need help.

    I hope that they don’t break up. They are a cute couple. But I liked Jen & Brad together as well.

  15. Elle says:

    Um…so you knew it was by birfday today by rewarding me with a Jake Gyllenhaal post, didn’t you?!?!?!?

    I’m a sucker for the Jarhead look, so I picked #1. Or maybe that’s just my enjoyment of the “two santa hats and not much else” scene in that movie. Have to admit that’s probably part of it. Yeeesh. 🙂

  16. Tania says:

    I heart Jake G. and his sister Maggie. My vote went with number 6-he just doesn’t need all of that hair to distract from his striking mug. Lucky Reese first she had Ryan P. and now Jake G.
