If the answer is yes, you are in the right place.
When it comes to growing the Thor beard, obviously, we are referring to Chris Hemsworth.
Chris is the guy behind Thor and today we will discuss his beard style in Thor movie.
Chris Hemsworth’s role not only in Thor but also in many other films and movies has captivated women’s eyes and that’s mostly due to his amazing physique and beard.
Obviously, he is a handsome guy but he is much different without his beard.
In this article, we will discuss everything about Chris Hemsworth Thor beard style, what it is, how to do it, how to maintain it, other Chris Hemsworth’s beard style and more.
Let’s get started!
A Brief Introduction To Chris Hemsworth
We all know Chris Hemsworth but obviously we should remind ourselves some things in this article and quickly move on.
Christopher Hemsworth as it is his full name is an Australian actor born in Melbourne. He is married to the Spanish actress and model Elsa Pataky and they have 3 children.
He is born in 1983 and he is mostly known for playing Thor in Marvel movies exceptionally successfully.
He is, now, one of the best paid actors in the world.
Apart from his undeniably great talent in acting, he is also known for his impressive physique.
Chris has been training for years and his body is astonishing. Indeed, numerous celebrities have spoken about it on a camera, such as Jessica Chastain, Scarlett Johansson and Dakota Johnson, and more.
But, enough with the intro, let’s get into the stuff you came here for.
What Is The Thor Beard Style?
Well, to be honest, I was trying to guess what most of you mean by typing ”Thor beard”. Do you want Chris Hemsworth’s beard in Thor movie, short beard or you are actually searching for his long beard maybe the braided one from Endgame?
Obviously, there is no answer to this because some prefer short beards and others prefer long beards.
Therefore, we will discuss both beard styles!
A) Short Beard
Chris Hemsworth, in the Thor film, wears a beard that is something between a heavy stubble and a short beard.
This is an effortless and easy beard style to do.
You will only need a high quality trimmer and a few beard products. Of course, every one of us is different, though.
If your beard is very patchy you may not be able to copy this beard style exactly. But, if you are able to grow a thick beard i guarantee you can very easily create an amazing short beard style that will make you look masculine and manly.
B) Thor Braided Beard From Endgame
Bro Thor or Fat Thor or Gamer Thor or whatever you wanna call him is the same character is Thor’s version that appears in Endgame (Avengers).
In Endgame, Thor appears to have a completely different beard than he used to.
His facial hair is long, very long, someone can say it is similar to a yeard (1-year-old beard).
If you wanna go even further, you can try the braided Viking-like version of this long beard. This style is not seen very often. Some men and women will love it and others will absolutely hate it.
A short beard is always a safer option. Just saying. Always do what you wanna do!
Let’s now see how you can actually get these beard styles!
Are you as excited as I am?
How To Get Chris Hemsworth Thor Beard Style
As you can easily understand, we will discuss the 2 styles separately because they are very different.
For the first beard style, the short beard, that he wears in Thor (2011) film, you need to do the following steps.
- Let Your Facial Hair Grow
- Wash, Dry and Brush Your Beard
- Start Trimming The Sideburns And The Cheek Hair
- Start Trimming Chin And Jaw Hair
- Use A Beard Oil
The first step to get the Thor short beard is to let your facial hair grow for at least 2 weeks. This is crucial especially if you have patchy areas.
Then, before the actual trimming, wash your beard, dry it and then brush it so that it doesn’t have any tangles. You should want to make your life easier, shouldn’t you?
Then, grab your high quality beard trimmer and choose the guard 3mm or 3,5mm (0,11 inch).
Apply the same pressure during the whole process.
You should, then, change the guard to 4 or 4,5 (0,16 inch) because Chris Hemsworth has thicker and longer facial hair on his jaw and chin and you wanna do this too.
You don’t need to care very much about creating a neckline. Most of the time, he doesn’t make a very strict neckline. But, if you want to do a variation just do it.
Start trimming 2 fingers width above Adam’s apple all the way down.
The final step to get and maintain Thor beard is to moisturize your under beard skin with a beard oil. It is as simple as that.
This was the easy one. Let’s move on to the long braided beard style!
For the second beard style, you need to let your beard grow for months. It won’t be a walk in the park.
Growing a long beard comes with a lot of problems such as extreme irritation, hairs curling back into the skin, beard hairs sticking out, under beard skin dryness, beard dandruff and many more.
So, think twice before starting. Now if you have taken your decision you need to be patient and mentally strong. Don’t pay attention to what other people may think of you.
You have your goal.
Two major things to do when you are trying to grow a long beard is:
- Eating the right foods
- Using the best beard products (at least beard oil)
Eating the right foods (rich fatty acids foods, fruits, and vegetables, etc) is essential because it accelerates beard growth and helps hair remain strong and healthy.
Using beard oil is super important whatever type of beard you are growing however when you grow a yeard it is even more important, I mean it’s necessary.
Don’t skip on this. It is very cheap. I am not selling you a ton of products. I only mention the bare minimum of things you will need.
Now that you have your long beard it is time for some beard grooming before you start braiding.
For this step, you will need a beard trimmer and a brush. Don’t fear you aren’t going to shorten your beard. Just cut any stray hairs on your sideburns. Make your beard look tidy but the chin hair should not be cut.
Now, the last step before braiding.
Wash your beard, dry it, and then apply some beard oil. Then, brush your beard carefully. This will untangle it and make it easier for you to braid it.
Oh right, let’s start braiding!
- Separate your beard into 3 parts.
- Start crossing them
It may sound more simple than it is but if you do it once, it becomes a piece of cake.
The most important step is to divide your beard into 3 parts.
Then you should cross the right part over the middle part and the left over the right one. I know that it is tough to understand so better see this video to answer any question you may have.
After you braid your beard, just put an elastic band to keep it tight.
Congrats! You have made it! Now, you have the Thor beard style and you should be proud of yourself.
