Ben Affleck’s Dreamy Oscar Beard Is No More

Ben Affleck reportedly grew his stately beard as a good luck charm for the awards season, and while it didn’t secure him a Best Director nomination, it did get his movie an Oscar for Best Picture. All in all, not bad for a good luck beard, right? But now it seems Ben’s famous facial hair…

Jared Leto Debuts Emo Lincoln Beard At The DNC

So, Jared Leto posted this photo of himself with an American flag and a “big patriotic beard” at the Democratic National Convention on his Facebook page, and it’s bringing me such a potent mix of confusion and delight that I had to share it with you. God bless America, indeed. [Facebook]…

Jake Gyllenhaal And His Beard Cover Details Magazine

Dude. Dude. I am really, really into Jake Gyllenhaal’s Paul Bunyon-inspired wooliness on the cover of Details’ September issue. Let’s go chop some wood, if you know what I mean… Anyway, the actor has a decidedly more manly look and vibe to him in both the magazine’s photos and interview, in which he talks a lot about his approach to acting.

Good News, Guys: That Hipster Mustache Might Save Your Life

So, apparently those handlebar mustaches and ironic neckbeards aren’t just babe magnets, they’re also a boon for your health! A group of Australian researchers found that facial hair provide an effective barrier against the sun’s UV rays. “Facial hair reduced the exposure ratios to approximately one-third of those to the sites with no hair,” the…

Ooh Baby, It’s Cold On This Runway

God bless Vivienne Westwood: Her Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show put a chill on the faces of the poor male models sent down the runway. The boys were forced to wear fake — and in some cases, real — icicle beards. The look was apparently an homage to British naturalist David Attenborough and his documentary “Froze…

Ke$ha Has A Beard Fetish

Ke$ha seems to be enjoying this mouth full of facial hair far too much. Apparently this is some kind of fetish of hers as evidenced on the blog Put Your Beard In My Mouth. Some of us like to chew on beards and some of us find that repulsive. To each her own. [Buzzfeed]…

5 Current Trends Charles Darwin Would Probably Be Into

I think about a lot of things when I get dressed in the morning. I consider the pros and cons of shapewear. I come up with brilliant comebacks that would have been useful 3 years ago. I realize that I kind of miss the Macarena dance. And the other day I found myself thinking, I

A Brief History Of (Suspected) Lavender Marriages

When I was a kid, I was a bit confused by the word “thespian.” I watched adults say it with a certain swish of the hand. Did it have something to do with drama or was it a sexual orientation? Now, I’m older and I get it. But I do think it’s interesting that the…

It’s Time To Play March Beard Madness!

I can’t get into March Madness because I don’t give a flying fudge about college basketball, but I am obsessed with male facial hair. Clean-shaven just isn’t for me. My only qualm with this otherwise awesome bracket pitting famous bearded dudes against each other — where the hell is Paul Bunyan?! [Thought Balloon Helium via…

Movember Facial Hair: Love It Or Leave It?

Have you guys heard of Movember? In 2003 in Melbourne, Australia, a few friends decided to grow out their facial hair for the month of November to draw attention to men’s health issues. Their humble, hairy plan: that their mustaches could “change the face of men’s health” and maybe they could raise a few buck…

Do Not Want: BeardHead Hats

Oh no. Please tell us this is a joke. The New York Daily News reports that a California company called BeardHats is actually … successful? People are wearing these? In public? And here we had thought the beard accessory trend was on the decline. Damn you, cold weather! You bring out the fools and crazies!

Have You Ever Made Your Guy’s Beard or Mustache Go Bye-Bye?

On last night’s “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart unveiled his new beard-free face. He said that he decided to shave the scruff after he and his family had a heart-to-heart about it and his kids told them they hated it. Now Jon has 30 percent more face and looks 100 percent less like a grizzled…

Tyson Beckford Has Some Facial Hair I Could Love

I’m one of a few [Me too! -- Editor Amelia] at The Frisky who enjoys facial hair, specifically a beard and mustache that look equally groomed and scruffy. This photo of Tyson Beckford brought me back to my teen years when at least 50 photos of him, and him alone, lined my walls. But the…

The Many Beards Of “Mad Men”

The men in Hollywood are obsessed with beards, and among the largely male “Mad Men” cast, this is all the more apparent. The show isn’t taping at the moment, so those who want facial hair can have it until the cameras start rolling again. Michael Gladis, the actor who plays the always-bearded copywriter Paul Kinsey,…

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Newly Bearded Men Of Hollywood

While some women hate how facial hair chafes their chin, others find the grizzly mountain man look super sexy. I’m definitely in the latter category. Outside of soul patches (which I think are stoopid), facial hair can add character to a man’s face or cover up an otherwise weird-looking upper lip or chin. It ca…
