Mel Gibson put his name in the history of cinema with his portrayal of Martin Riggs in the “Lethal Weapon” franchise and Sir William Wallace in the history flick “Braveheart” which he also directed, so it’s sad to see this iconic Hollywood lad struggle with numerous incidents over the past decade, including a DUI in 2006 followed by some extreme anti-Semitic rants.
Whatever Mr. Gibson did or said is not the case here. We’re here to respect the work he has done over his career and suggest you his unique gray ducktail beard style that may fit with the overall apparel of an experienced and serious yet modern gentleman.
When Mel Gibson wears a longer beard like he did during this director’s round table at “The Hollywood Reporter” he always tries to have a pointy ducktail like look that gives him that elongated shape which goes well with his darker sideburns.

You see how when Gibson has a shorter beard he leaves his goatee a little longer and shapes it up to form a pointy end while his mustaches are always trimmed.
Once he shapes up his beard like this at the beginning it’s quite natural to see a perfect form once his beard grows longer.
If you like to achieve the Mel Gibson ducktail beard style you just need to trim your sideburns and leave your goatee a little bit longer, shaping up for a pointy tip. You can choose between a handlebar mustache and a trimmed mustache, it’s all up to you.
