Johnny Depp has had some of the most iconic beards over the years, but his mustache hasn't gotten much attention.

Recently, he has worn one of the most beautiful moustaches the pyramidal which is generally a clean and short moustache in the shape of a triangle (as opposed to the Italian mustachewhich is straight)

The Van Dyke Johnny's is intentionally irregular, making it perfect for those who don't want to put a lot of effort into maintaining an even beard length. This is one of Johnny Depp's most recent looks, spotted at the 47th Deauville American Film Festival (2021).

He added a chin stubble that extends slightly along his jaws. This look was recently seen on him at the 16th Zurich Film Festival.

5. A bold and elegant beard

This is one of the most mature and masculine beard styles. A mature man over thirty can wear this look without thinking twice.
It is a combination of chin beard, soul patch and chevron mustache.

He wears this style like a gentleman, and the choice of hairstyle is also delightful: the hair strands fall on the forehead, which gives an impression of elegance.

6. The original Van Dyke style of Johnny Depp

This is his classic goatee style that fits exceptionally well with his face shape. The mustache looks more like a Zorro mustache that has come off the chin beard (we're back to the pencil moustache).
It's a simple but elegant beard style, but you'll need to shave the cheeks after a day or two for a neat, clean look like the famous actor.

Tip: It is easy to grow if you don't have (too much) beard.

8. Jack Sparrow's beard

Well, for the time being, I think that the Jack Sparrow's beard is one of the most iconic beard styles you can do at Johnny's.
It became popular and was named after Johnny Depp's character as Captain Jack Sparrow in the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean“.
This beard style requires immense care and is probably the most difficult to achieve. It is ideal for rectangular shaped faces or oval morphology.

It is somewhat similar to the dreadlocked beard which can also be braided to give a "dreadlocks" effect.
