Tom Hardy’s beard is an upcoming legend. From the first time, we saw Tom Hardy in Black Hawk Down we knew he was going to be a star.
Not only is he a fine actor and director, but he has also become a fashion icon. Tom has his own unique style which is slightly rebellious and he’s great at playing the bad boy.
He’s a handsome man and various styles suit him when it comes to facial hair, however, he is able to wear a full beard exceptionally well – let’s see some of his styles:
# 1 Rugged Facial Hair
Here Tom is wearing a full beard and moustache that has a slightly rugged look. That is because the growth on the face has not been well defined with razor lines. His moustache reaches just over the top lip and has been grown into the beard.
# 2 Period Style
In this picture, he has a medium length, full beard that continues until just under the chin. The hair covers the lower portion of his face with just a small patch of bare skin around the soul patch.
# 3 Hunky Hardy
Beards look very handsome when combined with a close razor cut hairstyle just like Tom has here. You can tell his beard is well maintained and soft, with just a few grey hairs on the chin – making him look distinguished as well.
# 4 Sculpted and Sensual
Here Tom is wearing his moustache slightly shorter than in the previous pictures and it helps to draw attention to his lips. The rest of his beard is well defined along the edges and has been allowed to grow into the neck area.
# 5 Busy Beard
Being an actor and producer keeps him busy and that’s why Tom prefers classic no-fuss styling. In this picture, his beard is trimmed neatly to a uniform length with the moustache just hugging the lip. He’s teamed this look with a simple slicked back hairstyle.
# 6 Come Hither Hardy
This picture shows Tom with a short stubble beard – possibly the beginning of something fuller.
It’s a terribly attractive style for him and helps accentuate his best features; kissable lips and high cheekbones. He’s kept the lines neat as well and the moustache off the lips.
# 7 Adventure Style
Doesn’t this look make him look ready for an adventure? Or that he has just returned from one?
Either way, Tom is able to wear a bushy beard such as this without it seeming scruffy at all. The key is steady maintenance and regular conditioning.
# 8 Red Carpet Glamour
In this picture, he is wearing a stubble length beard along the sides with more hair volume over the chin and moustache area.
Both have been snipped to the same length and the beard has been given a rounded shape just under the chin.
# 9 Pointy Moustache
Is there a look that Tom Hardy can’t pull off? It seems not! Here we see him with his face and head shaved completely bald with only a cultivated moustache remaining. The moustache has been combed and twisted to have pointy ends.
# 10 Romantic Style
Once again Hardy has paired an established beard with a simple slicked back hairstyle for maximum effect. His beard looks soft and conditioned and while it has not been trimmed neatly it has a romantic and laid back feel.
# 11 Rebel With A Cause
Long or short facial hair suits Tom but he is really able to smoulder in longer styles like this. Here he wears a handlebar moustache and a full beard that has slightly more volume toward the chin area.
# 12 Hot for Hardy
This photo gives us a great view of how Hardy keeps his beard styled. The sides here are stubble length and the moustache and chin hair have been grown out. Notice how the neck is kept clear to help provide a definition.
# 13 Tempting Tom
Try to imagine Tom in this picture – relaxed with a baseball cap and t-shirt – with no beard. It’s just not the same, is it? His trademark beard helps add to his bad boy persona and give him an edgy look.
# 14 Shaggy and Sexy
Beards don’t always need to be perfectly clipped to be desirable as we can see here. His beard is long and shaggy however you can see that the neck has been shaved to give the look shape.
# 15 Working Man
This look is ultra masculine and just slightly unkept which only adds to the sex appeal. The hair is lush and has a tousled texture that makes him look as though he’s been working outside or engaged in physical activity.
# 16 Hardy’s Hip Look
Here we see Tom Hardy with a trendy hipster look. His hair is styled to have a slight lift and his facial hair has been clipped. He’s wearing a full moustache that just covers the top lip and a soul patch.
# 17 Hot Handlebar
A handlebar moustache is not for everyone but Tom can definitely wear it. He’s kept the rest of his facial hair at a long stubble length and allowed the hair above his lip to extend just over the sides. The underside of the lips has been shaved clean.
# 18 Beard Desire
In this look, the beard is lovely and full all around with the moustache feeding into it. He’s allowed some hair to grow beneath the lip but kept a shaved patch below that.
# 19 The Gentleman
For this style, Tom has started with a handlebar moustache that extends down to join with the beard. The beard is limited to just the chin area with a soul patch while the rest of his facial hair is stubble length.
# 20 Smart and Stylish
In this look, Tom’s beard is very curly and has been grown out fully, then trimmed into shape. The moustache has been neatly combed down and once again just covers the top lip.
