Get Chris Hemsworth’s(Thor) Hair of the Gods

Born in Melbourne, Australia, Chris Hemsworth burst onto the movie scene as George Kirk, Captain James T. Kirk’s father, in “Star Trek”. He was television in Australia for about five years. He is currently playing Marvel’s “Thor”, with fabulous extensions. Coming soon, he will play Patrick Swayze’s character, Jed Eckert, in a remake of the 1980′s Brat Pack movie, “Red Dawn”.


Chris’ haircut is a great, fabulously versatile cut that can go from business day to dance-club evening with little messing around. The “business” or day time style could easily be influenced by Dan Draper (Jon Hamm) from Mad Men, (See Franz’s post by clicking here!). First, use a bit of the Kevin.Murphy Sticky.Business on the top to make a sharp, clean part and hold it in place. Comb the larger side of the part to the side and a little to the back and push forward just a bit to give some height to the hair. I used to call it a “wave” at the hairline. Take a bit of Kevin.Murphy Easy.Rider to the sides and back and comb them smooth and to the back. A great finish is the old-fashioned ducktail the guys wore and were very proud of in the the 50′s and 60′s. This should stay nicely through the day’s work.


A variation on the same style is simply combed straight back and end with the same ducktail over any hair from the crown that may lay in the back. Giving a part and slight wave to either side of the part will add dimension and interest to a possibly mundane looking style.


At five o’clock, It’s easy to take your fingers and separate the comb-over just a bit to give a more casual and fun look to the business style. Moving the ducktail with your fingers to fall forward and give a less structured look to the smooth and dressy looking sides and back. One could even further and pull the bangs and sides completely forward for a more “moppish” and hip look.


Because of the versatility of this haircut, it is a recommended and fun to cut.
