Drawing inspiration from the hair style trends of our favorite stars and celebrities has become national past time. One such star is Viggo 
Mortenson. His close swept back hair style with mustache and goatee 
has young men growing their whiskers to get his Wild West look.

TO GET THE LOOK: Are you the Urban Cowboy type and have been looking for an authentic western hair style? If that’s the case, how about try Viggo’s swept back look and Wild West goatee on for size and watch the ladies heads turn when you ride into town. To get the look, let's take it one step at a time, starting with a style cut and shape.

LET’S SHAPE IT: To fit comfortably under a cowboy hat or base ball cap, 
the style is given a contoured silhouette with a close tapered neckline. The hair is a bit longer in front to comb back off the face. This classic style suits most face shapes, especially those with strong angular features like Viggo’s. With a few adjustments (trims) as it grows you can easily find the ideal 
length and shape for your style.

LET’S STYLE IT: To style use a dab of shaping gel or styling foam or 
nothing at all. Just run either through damp hair and comb in place to dry 
au natural. When dry, run a dab of pomade through the top and sides for a slicked back look and you’ve got Viggo Mortenson’s western hair style.

LET’S ADD WHISKERS: Nothing can reshape a face or add a dramatic 
look like facial hair. It can balance a large or small facial shape, cover a 
ruddy complexion and definitely add a stylish or artsy look. A mustache can cover a wide upper lip, while a goatee will make a narrow chin wider and a double chin almost disappear. Because facial hair grows quickly with a few adjustments (trims) as it grows you’ll find the perfect fit for your face shape and features in no time at all. For the authentic western style, include a wide mustache with full disconnected chin goatee and you’ve got Viggo’s Wild West look.

NOW, LET’S COLOR IT: Actors change their hair color often for the many roles they play so dying their hair is no big deal. For an out doors look, 
Viggo’s hair is given a natural sun bleached effect with a high lift light golden brown tint. After, a clear glaze seals-in the color and turn on the shine. Using a lighter shade for a sun kissed look will also make those few gray hairs less noticeable. To keep it up plan on having it lightened with every other hair cut.

This look has everything you could ever want for an authentic western hair style. The contoured silhouette with a close tapered neckline and front comb back of the face fits comfortably under a cowboy hat or base ball cap.  The wide mustache and full disconnected chin goatee tells everyone you are the real thing. So be prepared to hear the ladies yell “Yep Hee” when you ride 
into town with your Viggo Mortenson’s Wild West Do'.

For Viggo's star style visit a salon stylist and make your hair shine like the stars.
