What Happens When A Regular Guy Rocks Jared Leto Hair?

We, along with most of the Earth's female population, believe Jared Leto's hair possesses otherworldly qualities. That shine, body, and wave has to be the work of some ethereal being (or a very talented hairstylist, at least). So, when we learned that a mere mortal had made an attempt to pull off Leto's signature look, we were very much intrigued.
The Cut recruited CollegeHumor's Will Stephen to spend a week living life with Leto's luscious locks. (Say that three times fast!) After hooking him up with a shoulder-length ombré wig, the site sent Stephen on his way — and, of course, hilarity ensued.
Stephen writes of lingering glances on the subway and sartorial snafus (turns out the man-lob isn't so cool unless you commit to the Leto-look as a whole). And, we had a good laugh at his play-by-play of hitting NYC's Le Bain — let's just say the reactions of clubgoers were, uh, mixed.
In fact, we'll admit that reading through Stephen's failed foray actually made us admire Leto even more. Click through for the full story — and some giggle-inducing before and after shots. (The Cut)
