According to the show’s hair and make-up stylist Nicky Austin, in this US magazine article, the most important part of styling the football manager is getting his mustache right. Actor Jason Sudeikis grows his own for the role, but when it comes to your Ted Lasso costume going with a fake mustache will probably be easier. You should be able to purchase one online, that is dark brown and bushy like Teds to really complete your look.
