Zac Efron might be blessed with a killer smile and heart-stopping physique, but that head of perfectly tousled hair, could it possibly be effortless too? “I’ve never told anyone this before. This is a hair scoop,” the Me and Orson Welles star tells Time as part of their “10 Questions” series before revealing his DIY steps. “Shower before you go to bed, and then sleep on your wet hair. Towel-dry it. In the morning, it’s all messed up naturally. If you have that messed-up thing going when you wake up, it’s more willing to stay that way. That’s Zac’s hair tip.” Learn more of Zac’s secrets as he answers readers’ burning questions at

I would not want to be snuggling my man in bed with a wet head of hair… Besides, I like men who shower in the morning, they smell better ;o)

Zac Efron, oh my! He has grown into such a handsome young man– he could probably be completely bald and still be dashing. His hair is adorable though.

Isn’t that common knowledge? My boyfriend’s been doing that for years!
