Robert Pattinson has finally gone out from the Twilight shadow to become one of the best actors working in Hollywood now.

He has developed so much that he was even given the cape and cowl and role of our newest Batman.

Becoming the Dark Knight does require you to have a deep voice, but you also have to have a granite chin, as this is the only part that the mask allows us to see.

Robert Pattinson definitely has an exquisite chin and for some roles, he was even required to grow a beard.

Mind you, Robert absolutely hates growing certain beard styles for his roles, but some of them still look good on him.

We actually went through all the Robert Pattinson beard styles that he sported over the years and created a guide of good and bad examples.

There are some definite flops and styles that should be avoided at all costs.

There are also a few gems here and there that really look good on Robert.

Here are our thoughts on his facial hair styles and ways to create them.

Robert Pattinson’s Different Beard Styles

Robert Pattinson isn’t famous for his facial hair choices. You rarely see him having one and the styling choices translate to his movies. However, there have been some rare occasions when Robert decided to grow a glorious beard. But there have also been some beard styles to avoid as well. 

There was a time when Robert sported a full beard with quite a long mustache. People thought he went completely Joaquin Phoenix on us. But it turned out to be just a phase. Robert also went for a goatee beard style, which looked weird. There were too many problems with that style to mention all of them. 

Robert looks best with a stubble beard. He already has a very defined jawline and cheekbones that highlight his face. Hiding them away is a travesty, which is why a subtle and subdued beard style looks best for him. A stubble beard also does not require much to create as one only needs to use a beard trimmer to style it and add some beard oil from time to time to maintain it.

Robert Pattinson once said that he doesn’t enjoy having a lot of facial hair, even in his movie roles. He specifically emphasized: 

“The two times I’ve done a movie where I have had quite significant facial hair—I do not understand men who choose to do this to themselves. The idea of having a mustache as your go-to look for your whole life [means] you’ve got to be out of your mind. It’s like having a stone in your shoe every day. You’re constantly sneezing, constantly covered in food.”

He refers to roles in movies The Lost City of Z (2016) and The Lighthouse (2019). Robert needed to grow a long, bushy, and scraggly beard for the role in The Lost City of Z. It was something genuinely unnatural for him. Even though it made him look a lot manlier, it is a beard style that cannot even be tamed with the world’s best beard comb and something he would not wear in everyday life. 

The long mustaches he downed in The Lighthouse looked even weirder on him. First of all, it makes him look significantly older and the style is not something you would expect from the baby-faced Pattinson. He fares better when going for unique beard styles without a mustache, as the stash is unsuitable for his face type. 

Like the one he has in the Water for Elephants (2011), a subtle stubble is a far better beard choice for Pattinson than longer facial hair styles. 

Tools Needed to Grow His Beard Style

Depending on the Pattinson style you want to go with, you will need some tools to grow a good Robert Pattinson beard. If you’re going to go for a more extended look, then be sure to get some natural beard shampoo. Washing your beard regularly will help you make it neat but, most of all, soft to the touch. A high-quality beard brush should also be a part of your toolset, as you will need it to brush and comb the beard from time to time. 

A longer beard will also take much more time to grow, at least four months or so. Therefore going for a lighter beard might be a more suitable option. Since it will take only a month to get a stubble going, you are probably only going to need some premium beard oil to maintain it. We also suggest getting an excellent beard trimmer as you will have to trim it from time to time to keep the length. 

How to Grow It

Step 1 – Let your beard grow

Allow the beard to grow for about a month. 

Step 2 – Eliminate all unwanted hair

Use an electric trimmer to do away with excess hair. Shave off the neckline and the cheeks with a suitable razor. Do away with all the stray hairs using some scissors. 

Step 3 – Beard care is important

Applying beard balm from time to time is not going to hurt. 

To keep this beard style intact, you should trim away the excess hair as regularly as possible. If it starts to get too long or scraggly, it will ruin the look for you. Wash your face and beard as regularly as possible and make sure to moisturize as well.

Step 1 – Regular trimming

Grooming your Robert Pattinson beard does not come without making certain sacrifices. It means that you will have to spend a lot of time grooming your beard, so it does not get too wild on you.

Regular trimming is needed. In this case, when determining between electric razor vs blade, the former will help you keep the beard short while the latter should be used for shaving off the hair from the cheeks and the neckline.

Step 2 – Apply moisturizing oil

Applying beard oil and moisturizing your face is a must. It does not hurt to do it every day, but it will be necessary after each trim or shave.

Step 3 – Clean your trimmer and razor

Always use a sharp razor and be sure to clean your trimmer after each go.

Step 4 – Use a quality beard brush

A high-quality beard brush should also be a part of your grooming arsenal, as brushing it from time to time will help you remove all the dead skin and help the beard be as neat as possible. 

Most Common Mistakes to Avoid

There have been instances where Robert Pattinson made a few mistakes in his beard style choice. Longer beard styles are not his cup of tea. At best, his mistakes were pedestrian as he did some atrocities that seasoned shavers know they have to avoid.  

Over trimming a long beard is one of the mistakes he made. It is necessary to trim the beard, but going overboard does not come with favorable results. He also did a number on the mustache, as it was too light for the rest of the face.
The mustache looked too sharp and jumped off from the face. 

The final beginner mistake was shaving the neckline too high. You have to shave it to a certain point, but showing extra skin will only come with consequences. It creates an unwanted double chin effect that needs to be avoided.
