Brian Grazer’s Hair-Raising Brand Is Kid Approved

Everyone still talks about Brian Grazer’s trademark hair— especially because he hasn’t changed his style in 20 years.

Even at 63, the veteran producer isn’t about to re-coif his attention-grabbing spiked mane into something more mundane.

While those who may have surmised that Grazer took his cue from the similar crop of hair that sprang from the head of late comic Stan Laurel, think again.

Grazer was playing around in his pool in the mid-1990s with his then 6-year-old daughter, Sage. “She popped my hair up, and she liked it,” he says. “And because she liked it, and I love her, I thought, ‘Oh I’ll try it.’ ”

And just like that, Grazer’s brand was born. But true to the producer’s character, it was the provocation that made the style stick. “I like that it stirred people up. People liked it, and a big segment of people hated it and thought I was an asshole for having it. And that intrigued me, because I thought, ‘I bet they think I’m an asshole anyway, and this just gives them an excuse to say it.’ ”

After trying a vast array of hair products, Grazer settled on two. There’s the water soluble Sebastian gel, for his dry-land meetings, and Bed Head for his surf sessions. “It’s like surf wax in your hair,” he says. “I tried surfing without it and I just don’t feel comfortable.”
