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:
I’m a beard person, so this was fantastic to me.
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:
Is there enough going on here to make a ponytail for Poldark?
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?
