Just like his hammer, Thor’s hair has a trajectory all its own, growing more God-like with each successive movie. “It’s a hairstyle that really embraces the hair’s natural texture and works particularly well for those with more distinct face shapes, such as diamond and heart face shapes” says Jim Shaw.
Key to making it work is not to cut it all one length. “Doing so will make the hair look heavy and it’ll lack movement. Using scissors to cut some soft medium/long layers throughout the hair, on the other hand, will help add body and movement and really brings the hair to life.”
For the forthcoming Thor: Love and Thunder the style Chris Hemsworth sports appears more rough-hewn than romance novel – a look that can be recreated by sectioning off damp hair and twisting it around a piece of material before securing with some elastic at the bottom to keep the shape in place until dry.
A texturising product like a salt spray, meanwhile, can give hair a grittier, messier fresh-from-battle finish. “Label.m Thickening Tonic is also a great product for this look, too, as it’ll add further definition, texture and volume to your hair but has a matte finish to help keep it looking natural.” Says Shw.
And if you’re ‘Hel’-bent on having the style but don’t have the hair fear not: “Extensions are becoming much more popular amongst men and they can look incredibly natural, especially as the hair can be colour matched for a seamless blend,” says Shaw. We won’t tell your enemies if you don’t.
