Only some men have God-like status, and as an actor who played the role of an actual Norse god for a decade, keeping that status has been similar to a pre-requisite for Chris Hemsworth.
Luckily,the Aussie leading man‘s character Thor had a similar hairstyle as him at that time. In the first film, he had long hair that carried down his shoulders, but in the third series, Hemsworth was wearing a more practical, short hair.

Most men experiment with their hair in their 20s and 30s when they have plenty of hair and are young enough to pull off many looks.
We will introduce some of Chris Hemsworth’s top hairstyles of the years and ask best hairdresser Bradley Smith, creative director at Bradley Smith Hair, for ways to get them yourself. Although it’s not a choice to have the body of a god, the hair takes fewer efforts to complete.
The Superhero Sweep
One problem to consider before getting to hairstyle is that you will grow your hair mid-length, so it’s nice to see the barber for regular trims and trying some appropriate at home to manage it.
“Allow for roughly 4 inches on the top to allow the hair to be pushed over on the sides and top swept over with the fringe,” says Smith. “Ask for a scissor cut to create a softer and natural look. Be sure to leave enough hair in front in order to style, however too much length and you will struggle when styling.”
“At home, apply a hair tonic to towel-dried hair and work throughout focusing on the roots, which will keep your hair hydrated whilst creating a natural hold through the day. Use a light shine pomade as this will provide some hold but maintain that natural look with a light shine to leave the hair looking healthy.”
Chris Hemsworth with short hair
A forever classic, this hairstyle with a short back and sides will look good to most men, especially to those with rounder faces because the hair can grab attention away from the roundness. Thinner hair than thicker hair will work better thanks to easier maintenance to remove the excess weight and to style the hair up.
“Ask for a scissor cut over a comb on the back and sides leaving less than half an inch. You then want to create a disheveled look by point cutting hair on top to create the shape whilst working with your hair’s movement. To style, add a dash of sea salt spray and work from the base of your roots to create added volume and hold to the style. On a low-heat blow dry your hair and use your hands to create the basic shape of the hairstyle.”
“With the outline of the style created, apply a coin-sized amount of matte paste into your palms and let it heat up before running through your hair.”
Caught In The Middle
This slightly longer medium-length style highlights Hemsworth’s face, including his cheekbones while reducing his forehead size.
“Ask your barber for a layered cut with around 10 inches for the back,” says Smith. “A layered cut will create movement and texture throughout. With this style, there is an emphasis on the back, with it almost straying into mullet territory with the sides graduated over the ears. Finish up with a pointcut which will remove weight in bulky areas and create a textured finished.”
Washing this long hair too often can cause dryness, so using natural oils can keep your hair vital. Also, don’t forget to condition at least once per week to maintain the softness and nourished hair. “To add some shine try a light pomade for some shine,” says Smith. “Sea salt spray can be used to give a natural wavy feel to the hair.”
Chris Hemsworth with long hair
The trend of grunge, 90s style, and loose workplace dress codes imply that you can have long hair without being an Asgard these days. It can be tough to grow your hair. Smith advises going to your hairdresser every six weeks to cut the split ends and get rid of some weight.
“I would also say wavy hair is best suited to this shoulder-length hairstyle as you can use the natural kink of the wave to your advantage when styling. For said styling use a few sprays of sea salt spray to compliment your hair’s natural movement creating texture with added volume but still maintaining a natural look.”
“To finish you may wish to add a pomade as this will give your hair a slight shine leaving your hair looking revitalized.”
Chris Hemsworth with man bun
Since around 1750, the ponytail has been trending for men’s hairstyle. In the past, they used to use silk ribbon to tie their hair, but this would be a little extra for today’s trend. You can simply get a hair tie like Hemsworth below, and tie your hair back round to create a neat low bun.
“You’ll have to have shoulder length hair if you want to tie it up as such, roughly 14 inches,” says Smith. “I would avoid using elastic bands though,” he warns. “These will just break. Invest in some hair bands.”
“You also have to take a bit more care when you get out of the shower. “You want to slick back towel-dry hair as this is easier to style compared to dry hair. With your fingers push from your forehead back to the crown. You then want to tie the knot around two inches above the nape of the neck, however, you can play around with this and see what is comfortable for you.”
Chris Hemsworth’s Beard, the Odin
“Okay, not as long as Odin’s but the same short, messy crop as before gets a little more gruff with the addition of some facial hair. To get your own beard Hemsworth-handsome you’ll need to trim it every two to three days on approximately a five-point guard on your beard trimmer,” says Smith.
“For trimming the neckline, use the two-finger method, place your first two fingers on near the top of your Adam’s apple, and using the top of your index finger [as the marker]. Shave off everything below it. Then connect that point above your fingers to the backs of your ears, creating a ‘U’ shape.”
