Robert Pattinson is a highly versatile English actor and musician who has starred in independent and big budget films throughout his career. As you Potterheads may know, Pattinson started out his career as Cedric Diggory in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2015) where he supported actors such as Daniel Radcliff and Emma Watson. He then went on to play one of the most controversial vampires in the entire film industry, Edward Cullen, in The Twilight franchise (2008-2012) which gained him worldwide recognition and earned him around $25 million per movie. These days the actor's net worth is around $100 million.
Pattinson then went on to star in romantic dramas such as Remember Me (2010) and Water for Elephants (2011) where he had a chance to play some deeply troubled characters and star alongside Hollywood legends such as Pierce Brosnan (Mama Mia, James Bond) and Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde, Walk the Line). Recently Pattinson has found himself acting in some darker films such as Robert Eggers’ psychological horror film, The Lighthouse (2019) where he plays a lighthouse keeper that is slowly descending into madness. He also starred in Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi thriller Tenet (2020) impressing audiences with his acting range.
It’s hardly surprising that fans are tingling with excitement about his latest role in the latest take on The Batman (coming out in March 2022!). It will be interesting to see how Pattinson presents his version of the caped crusader compared to his predecessors. From the snippets we have seen it will be something along the lines of extraordinary fighting style, great chemistry with his co-star, Zoe Kravitz, and a brand-new hairstyle. Christian Bale would be proud.
So, we have put together a style guide on Robert Pattinson's newest Batman haircut and how you can recreate it. Let’s get into it!

It’s safe to say that Robert Pattinson has brought his own unique twist to the DC character Bruce Wayne. This is a great hairstyle for you fellas that like to keep things longer in the front and shorter in the back. It’s a haircut that can be worn as is (below, Hairstyle 1) or pushed back off the face and slicked back (below, Hairstyle 2). The good thing is the haircut for both these styles are the same. It’s when you add the products that the magic happens, and you get these two completely different looks.
How To Cut:
For the back you’re going to want to scissor cut the hair around an inch and a half starting at the base of the neck and tapering up towards the top of the head. You want the sides to have quite a bit of length, so it stops just past the tip of the ear. Ask your barber to put in some layers here to take out some of the weight. For the top hair you’re going to want to keep things long and cut the hair at around seven inches (it should reach the tip of your nose when brushed forward). This is because the hair needs to come from the very top of the head and sweep down to the tip of the ear.
Tip: If you have very thick hair you may notice your hair looks a little like a mushroom with this cut. Don’t worry. It’s an easy fix. Just ask your barber to thin out your hair with their thinning shears and you’re all set. This technique will reduce that weight and give your hair a nice texture.

How To Style:
This hairstyle is great if you like lots of movement in your hair and it actually requires very little product when it comes to styling. Perfect if you're a man who is contantly on the go. The end result should be a slightly shiny, lived in look.
