Facial Hair of Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’

Like any Tarantino joint, The Hateful Eight has everything you’re looking for:

  1. Rare B-Sides that only exist at the bottom of garage-sale milk crates
  2. Coffee so strong it should have a skull & crossbones on the label
  3. Red Apple brand tobacco. . .

And the coolest damn facial hair of 2016!

I like to imagine that all actors, everywhere, wear their beards home at the end of a shoot. Not so they can hide in plain sight though. They keep those perfectly groomed whiskers for the rare occasions they aren’t recognized, but the room still knows they’re The Coolest, ‘cause dat growth!

And can you believe that Kurt Russel (sporting more than just a John Wayne attitude that’s been missing from cinema for far too long) actually grew that bad boy for filming!
Commonly referred to as “Friendly Muttonchops” this unique mustache + sideburn combo was popularized by American Civil War general Ambrose Burnside who (according to Wikipedia) is the man to thank for the term Sideburns, after much ridicule over his trend-setting trim.

And now….on with The Beards!


Kurt Russel – The Hangman

Samuel L. Jackson – The Bounty Hunter

Bruce Dern – The Confederate General

Tim Roth – The Little Man

Demian Bichir – The Mexican


But there’s no need to wait for a blizzard to trap you indoors, with no hope of a proper shave, to start working on your own winter beard. Just follow these easy steps:

  1. Don’t Shave
  2. Ever
  3. Ever Again
