For those of you who were hoping to see Jared Leto and his flowing locks walk down the red carpet at the Academy Awards this coming Sunday (March 2, 2014) could very well be disappointed.

While Jared will definitely be there, his amazing mane of hair might not be flowing in the wind.

Into the Gloss chatted with Jared’s stylist Chase Kusero about how the Best Supporting Actor nominee would be wearing his hair. This is what Chase had to say.

Chase told us: “[Jared and I] were going to shock everybody and show up for the Academy Awards with a haircut, but it’s looking so good that we don’t really want to cut it. We’ll discuss it this weekend. It’s really important that he doesn’t look like a woman—that’s the biggest challenge. 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 even had all these actresses, like Olivia Wilde and Rachel Bilson and Julia Roberts, asking about his hair. He does have amazing hair, so it’s kind of inevitable. He’s definitely going to have long hair at the Oscars.”

He added, “When I see him, we’ll play with his hair for some photos—maybe a high bun, maybe half up, half down—and then go from there. That’s how we got to the pony-bun for the Globes. The big thing on my shoulders right now is if the hair is gonna be up or down—I’m voting up, because we’ve only done it maybe once before. I want to do something with a side part this time, something cleaner. And I want to try to get a bun that’s nice and small, more like a traditional knot. The pony-bun press was kind of funny—I don’t know if he liked all that or not. We both agree that it has to look like something he would do himself.”
