Chace Crawford Slicks It Back: Love It or Hate It?

Ramey, Splash News Online

PEOPLE’s Hottest Bachelor is known for his messy boy bangs both on- and off-screen, but when we spotted Chace Crawford on the set of Gossip Girl this week we were surprised to see his luxurious locks slicked back. Looks like his on-screen character Nate Archibald is taking style tips from frenemy Chuck Bass. And while Ed Westwick‘s Chuck has the grown-up slick back down path, we aren’t so sure about Chace’s Nate. Could this be Nate’s new college look? We can’t help but miss the boy bangs. Tell us: Do you like Chace better with boy bangs or the slick back?

His hair looks great slicked back b/c then you can see his beautiful face. I also like when he has slight stubble, makes him look older. The first picture reminds me too much of Kate Gosselin!

Erin on

He looks great. I wouldn’t call it “slicked back” but it shows off his face when the bangs are off of his forehead. I love the hair in the hottest bachelor issue. You should put a photo of him from that spread with this latest picture. That would be more current. This first picture was obviously taken when he was younger and hadn’t developed the messy bang look.

justcuz on

it makes such a small difference one way or the other. i think because it’s hard not to be looking at his eyes.

Marie on

Either way he looks too feminine. I never was attracted to him– too pretty.

nicole on

He is definitely the hottest bachelor! He looks good with both hairstyles. I love him with a little stubble too.

Molly on

Gorgeous both ways :)

Karen on

Either way is fine with me :)

juls on

He looks better when its not slicked back!

I agree with Marie – He is way too feminine!

Kammie on

with his hair down his kinda looks like jasper off of twilight. I like the slicked like better.

Anita on

I never knew what people saw in him, but the new look is HOT!

I can’t stand Chace. He’s just a bland pretty boy. No talent.

Wendy! on

I love it!!!! Looks great either way :)

Amber on

hmmm….is that a wannabe Edward do?

Dawn on

the slick back is not very slick!

V on

The updo is way better. Men, repeat after me: Lose the flat iron.

Pamela on

I love it slicked back. Let it hang wild!

carol on

He looks great either way! he looks “prettier” with the bangs and older with his hair back. They both work!

KC on

The bang-do almost looks like a wig, and makes him look much younger. I like the messy pushed back look better – I wouldn’t call it slicked back though.

Stay-C on

Definately off the his beautiful face !!!!!!!!

KD on

I Like it alot better “slicked back” I never thought he was hot, but with the new hair I do! I think he looks like a little boy with his longer hair.

Hes sooooooooooooooooooo hot, anyway he does his hair, hes a hottie. I wish every comment on every topic didnt have to mention Kate Gosslen though, enough about her, he doesnt look like her!!!! Man shes a money,fame sucking spoiled brat! Keep up what ur doing Chace!

Jules on

I agree with Erin – the first pic could be more current. But anyway, I think he does look better with the “slick back”. He looks sexier :)

I love Chace!! His hair looks amazing!! He seems like a great person and I love his hair either way! Very sexy!

Kimmiedee on

He looks like a man now, instead of a butch girl. So many guys looking so fraile these days…yuk.

Ari on

It looks good, but in my opinion, Chace is trying [but failing] to copy Robert Pattinson’s signature look as Edward Cullen.

Flo on


Melissa on

I don’t care what his hair looks like…he is perfect no matter what. He could wear a burlap sack and I would still want him!

Shama on

The new hair looks great, in a boyishly charming way.

Missy on

He looks 100 times better with his hair back. I actually think he’s good looking now.

jessie on

Yummy to both… :)

emily on

i think it makes him look more grown-up, the bangs make it look like he’s still in high school. i love it!

still love it on

no matter what i still love this style… he looks cute and hot in both hairstyle.. aniway.. still love it

Ashley on

He looks ok with it, i guess. But I think he looked a lot better with his old hair style. He’s one of the only people who can actually pull it off good.

Staci on

He looks hot both ways. Just as long as it’s not pilot hair!

mary on

chace crawford is very very beatiful

Juan on
