Wondering what kinds of hairstyles Prince Robert Pattinson has been sporting over the years? We’ve got you covered! Here’s a comprehensive guide to his hairstyle evolution over the years.
From Good to Great
Pattinson debuted as an actor in 2004, and was quickly cast in supporting roles in Hollywood blockbusters such as The Life of Marion Moore and The Lost Boys. In 2006, Pattinson landed his first lead role in the Australian TV series Underbelly. The young actor shined in his portrayal of a London gangster, and garnered a huge following in his home country.
Pattinson’s big break came in 2010, when he was cast as the youngest son of Lord and Lady Spencer in Kenneth Branagh’s highly acclaimed movie adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play Much Ado About Nothing. The following year, he was nominated for the BAFTA Rising Star Award, and received an International Emmy for Best Actor for his role in the miniseries The Lost Prince. In 2012, Pattinson was named the World’s Sexiest Man by Amazon, a title he still holds today.
While his breakout year was promising, it was also very eventful. In the following year, Pattinson turned 25, and celebrated the milestone with a lavish birthday party at London’s Royal Albert Hall. He was also featured on the cover of several magazines, including ELLE and GQ. That same year, he began dating his longtime companion, English actress Mia Wasikowska. Their whirlwind romance was covered in detail by the media, and the two were eventually married in a secret ceremony in May 2018. The happy couple keeps busy schedules, with Wasikowska often sporting a glamorous updo while Pattinson enjoys experimenting with his hair and sported a mix of hair-dos and hair-splits throughout their engagement and wedding months.
Pattinson and Wasikowska’s wedding was arguably one of the most memorable events of the year, attracting celebrities from across the globe. Actors Tom Hanks and Penelope Cruz were among the guests, and the wedding cake was designed by British baker David Loftus. The newlyweds honeymooned in Italy, France and Portugal, before returning to London to continue their tour of duty as leading men and women of British cinema. They’re currently spending the winter in the countryside with their young son, Henry. While he may not have completed high school yet, Henry certainly has a lot to look forward to.
A New Beginning
Pattinson returned to Australia in 2019 to star in the highly anticipated sequel to his breakout Underbelly film, Bad Blood. The movie is set for release in March 2020, with production starting in Sydney in January. The actor has also been keeping busy with non-movie projects, including a documentary series about Australia’s illegal wildlife trade. The first episode titled Vanishing Point aired on January 24th on the Australian TV channel ABC.
Meanwhile, Pattinson’s good friend Damian Hayter is producing a series of shorts for Netflix titled Savage Style, which will see the actor trying on unique and stylish looks. It will include a fashion makeover, and follow a similar format to his 2017 documentary about Parisian street style, Savage Moods.
Back To Basics
While there’s been plenty of upsides to being such a busy actor in recent years, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing. Shortly after turning 25, Pattinson faced criticism for some of his style choices, in particular a lack of emphasis on the traditional suit and tie for men. The actor was accused of being too trendy, and didn’t seem to favor style over substance. He later addressed the issue by stating, “I think a lot of guys my age get away with murder when it comes to fashion, and I don’t think it’s fair. I think guys should be as interested in fashion as girls are, but I guess we just don’t get as much attention to it as much as the girls do.”
While it’s encouraging to see an actor of Pattinson’s caliber put fashion first, it’s also worth pointing out that he’s been consistent in his style choices throughout his career. The actor has generally worn what has been suitable for the role, and has stuck to a basic formula, which has served him well.
With so much going on in his busy schedule, it’s understandable if Pattinson doesn’t always have time for a complete hair makeover. Still, it’s nice to see the actor keeping his hair cool and on trend throughout his career.
Whether you’re a fan of Pattinson’s work or not, every man’s hair style evolves over the years, sometimes dramatically. While some may go through haircuts that inspire awe in others, most men will only go with what they feel comfortable with.
