These ‘Stranger Things’ Stars Had Matching ‘Dos on the 2018 SAG AwardsCarpet
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Gaten Matarazzo (AKA Dustin from Stranger Things) is really complimenting costar Joe Keery! Both of the show’s star’s actors walked the red carpet at the SAG Awards with virtually identical coifs, with the younger of the two men channeling Keery’s signature style — AKA the Steve Harrington swoosh.
The look calls for a *super* deep left side part, chin-length, slicked-back strands, and what appears to be a *lot* of product to keep it in place — albeit not the Fabergé Organics shampoo you might think, with Keery admitting it’s Kevin Murphy products that keep his locks in place.
As for his young onscreen prodigy, it’s the first time we’ve seen the 15-year-old trade his natural curls for a slicker style offscreen, but he’s totally pulling it off like a total pro, if you ask us!
Fans immediately took to Twitter to speculate whether these #twinning hairstyles were intentional: After all, the matching locks are giving us flashbacks of the Stranger Things episode in which Harrington spills his hair routine to his younger pal.

"It's Fabergé Organics. Use the shampoo and the conditioner, and when the hair's damp – it's not wet, okay? When it's damp – you do four puffs of the Farrah Fawcett spray." – Steve's advice to Dustin 🕶#StrangerThings #SAGAwards #JoeKeery #GatenMatarazzo #goalz #proudmom pic.twitter.com/tyxpTAJcXM

While we may never know the actual answer, we must say, we’re beyond impressed with the likeness.
It’s not the first time Stranger Things cast members have totally #twinned, either; David Harbor has channeled an impressive number of characters from the show — including Matarazzo.
Looking good, Dustin! Er, we mean Gabe!
