#4 Richard Armitage and His Hair

This is part of my series of posts counting down to and through the Thanksgiving holidays and expressing my thankfulness for something I’ve received, experienced or participated in.

Richard and His Hair.

Richard Armitage has excellent hair. I’ve thought that ever since I saw this:


It was a vast improvement over the extensions:


But back to the luscious locks:


Is that seriously awesome looking hair or what? Women would kill to have hair like this. And if those are extensions around his neck, I don’t want to hear about it! That looks real.

And I’m going to stay off the topic of his sideburns as I absolutely despised long sideburns until I saw them on Richard. I’m not kidding when I say that. I cannot stand long sideburns. They look awful to me, but Richard can wear them, and I’m thinking about a wolf whistle.

About the time I got used to the magnificent mullet, I was hit with this:


That’s the mother of all razor cuts. I mean all razor cuts are or should be defined by it, and when their barbers are suggesting razor cuts, men should aspire to this cut. Not 6’2″, don’t have beautiful blue eyes and a great jaw? No problem. There’s a cut that fixes all of that. I can hear the thinking now.

And then there was this which created a backlash in RA Universe. A significant number were saying ewwwww to Guy’s new do. Me? I loved it. Even when it was unwashed the first few weeks, but man, he cleaned up well:


Then it was back to the sleek look:


Where he stayed until this came around:

And since then, I’ve been treated to all types of styles to please any appraising eye.

A little bit of a pompadour going on in this one:

Not much hair shown; this was the brutally short look:

Okay, so it’s not all of his hair, but Thorin’s mane is fantastic. I had to show it, and you get some chest hair thrown in:

Back to the tailored look, and I’m talking the hair:

This one is the I don’t give a rat’s ass how I look ’cause I’m considering that prisoner of war role:


And finally the pompadour is perfected:

That particular photo still packs a punch.

Heck, it’s just been more or less a thrill ride to see what he would come with next, and it occurred to me that there is no need to get antsy about his next project and every reason to be thankful for being entertained by his hair. To wit:

And if I get bored with this, I can go back to some old photos.

Here’s a favorite:


See what I mean about the sideburns?


  1. We should all be thankful for Richard’s hair, especially the Mullet of Magnificence. :-)

  2. I heard once that the more you live with a person, the more you look like them. Unfortunately, my prince’s head is as slick as an onion. :/. Yes, I have been slowly losing hair since ’02 and thyroidectomy :'( :'( :'( Maybe I should live w/ Richard for a while to see if my living situation could improve the thickness of my hair.

  3. Mercy.

    Yeah, that about covers it. :D

  4. Loved this! Any excuse to compare photos of Richard. I agree regarding the sideburns. somehoe he makes them look good. Thanks!

  5. Yep. Great hair. :) And Thornton’s sideburns were fantastic, too.

  6. YUM …… I will be happy to take him anyway he would like to show up on my doorstep…. I just adore the man,the talent, the hair…… ;D

  7. That this man with this hair is totally hot. http://www.rsokna.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/richard-armitage.jpg

  8. When he told Martin in the 60 seconds interview that he’d rather shave his head than gain 20 pounds, I gasped. I think my tears alone would create a waterfall outside my apartment door!

  9. You are so right — He has fantastic hair!! Along with his fantastic, skin and eyes and jaw and legs and… you name it! He is fan-frickin’-tastic all over!!!
    *rolls tongue back into mouth, and wipes drool*
    Thanks for the pictures! :)

  10. Yea, Frenz……….. I reckon Richard’s growing his hair for “Poldark”, too! He’s the only man on earth who could play that role after the magnificent Robin Ellis. Please, Lord….don’t let it be just wishful thinking…..we really are in dire need of a remake of one of my alltime favourite English television series with my altime favourite English actor.

  11. whoops.. typo alert……alltime

  12. Ok, I admit it…I have a hair fetish & Richard’s hair is one to obsess over! I love his hair, mostly on the longish side. The sleek look is good too, but I like something you can run your fingers through.(..yea, don’t I wish!). Honestly, I wouldn’t turn him away however he showed up…

  13. LOL! You’re in good company! And I prefer it long too. He has GORGEOUS hair.

  14. That he does, Frenz! Simply gorgeous! Happy Holidays!

  15. Actually when you look closely at the video interviews he did for the Love poems you can see he has had some hair plugs in the front of his hair in the middle – you can see the join. Just saying but he does have great hair!
