Top 10 Facial Hair Statements Of 2012
#2 Christoph Waltz, Django Unchained There's plenty to marvel at in Quentin Tarantino's latest, from its buckets or gore to its wild energy and even wilder performances. Waltz is mesmerizing as Dr. King Schultz, dentist-cum-bountyhunter, and this beard and mustache combo above—with its gradient from brown to grey—proves a key part of his performance. Punctuating his fantastic facial hair by wearing grey suits and a matching and luxurious fur coat, the good doctor's got a real flare for the dramatic. He strokes his moustache throughout the film in a way that is sure to urge many men to give up their razor. In the end, it's such an enviable combo that even his enemy declares it "excellent" while cursing him in the same breath.
#1 Stephen Hunter, The Hobbit Peter Jackson knew he had a tricky task ahead of him in making 13 different dwarves distinctive to audiences for the first part of his Hobbit trilogy, An Unexpected Journey. So he tasked makeup and hair designer Peter King and costume designer Ann Maskey with coming up with a trademark look for each of the epic's central ensemble. Inspired by Tolkein's fantastical world, they took facial hair to new lengths with a panoply of incredible wigs and applique beards and mustaches. But of all the furry-faced dwarves of The Hobbit, Bombur's the one whose look is the most striking. This is a magnificent moustache bounds from his cheeks and down his chest into the manliest braid that's ever been made!
