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]…

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…

The New Kids On The Block Are Shirtless And Rocking Porn Star ‘Staches

Speaking of ’90s musicians, Donnie Wahlberg recently tweeted this photo of the New Kids hanging out in what looks like a locker room(?!), mustached and shirtless (with the exception of Jonathan Knight, who’s sporting a modest white T and bearing an uncomfortable resemblance to Adrien Brody). So, what do you think of the guys’ new…

Be My Boyfriend: Batman Goatee Guy

Dear Batman Goatee Guy,
You are either a really serious Batman fan or have an excellent sense of humor or both. You’re handy with a razor and possess the ability to grow thick, lustrous facial hair. I’m not sure what else I could ever want in a man. Do you have a date for the…

An Open Letter To My Abnormally Long Chin Hair

Dear Abnormally Long Chin Hair,

We’ve been intimately acquainted since I first noticed you my sophomore year of high school. I looked in the mirror one day before school and was horrified to find a thick whisker protruding from my chin. I might have cried.

Growing up, I’d watched my mom…

The Tricky Sideburns Vs. Hotness Matrix

It must be difficult for the menfolk to figure out just how long to keep their sideburns. Too long, and they risk being mistaken for a member of a mid-’90s modern rock band. Too short, and we’ll assume you’ve been locked away in your parent’s basement with only your World of Warcraft to keep your…

In partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, they’ve introduced Defember, a pledge to defuzz your upper lip this month. If you take the pledge on Olay’s site, they’ll donate a dollar to…

The Men Of Movember

While October is devoted to raising awareness for breast cancer, November is all about the gentlemen. During the month of November, or “Movember,” as the Movember Foundation likes to call it, men around the world will grow the kind of facial hair many of us see as gross, cheesy, and porn star-esque for a good…

Hulk On Hulk Action

Hulk Hogan’s facial hair can just as well double as head hair, as illustrated in this rather disturbing Photoshopped illustration. It’s called Moustair, and Hulk is hardly the only celeb whose facial hair has multiple applications. In fact, there’s a whole website devoted to the cause. [Moustair]…

Selena Gomez Not A Fan Of Justin Bieber’s Mustache

“I actually don’t [encourage the mustache]. It’s not gonna grow … I mean, it needs a little more time. You’ve gotta commit. You can’t just be like, ‘All right, let me just do a little one.'”
Selena Gomez reveals on SiriusXM that she isn’t loving maybe-boyfriend Justin Bieber’s new facial hair. On March 5th,…

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…

Mind Of Man: I Want To Grow A Sweet Mustache

I always wanted to grow a mustache. Fearsome pimp whiskers. To me, the mustache is to masculinity what long, flowing tresses are to femininity. Aphrodite’s long hair was the source of her sexual authority, which she’d comb while sitting inside her pet oyster “Chester.” Aries, God of the pointy phallus and the shield, wore a…

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…

Groom Accuses Bride Of Hiding Her Facial Hair With A Veil

An Arab ambassador to Dubai hastily tried to divorce his new bride after he lifted the niqab veil covering her face for the first time ever and saw his wifey was cross-eyed and sporting a beard. Aw, poor lady. The pissed-off groom claimed his mother-in-law duped him into the marriage by showing him photographs of…

Brad Pitt’s Grosso Beard Explained. Kind Of.

For the past few months, we have all watched in horror as Brad Pitt’s beard got longer, scragglier, and grosser. So I felt that something was right in the world when People posted a plausible explanation for the poor facial hair decision this morning—that Brad is just getting into character for his role as Percy…

Are You Into Men With Mutton Chops?

So, last night I had a date with a guy who showed up with mutton chops. Three weeks ago he did not have them. And now he does.* Sigh.

The man who can pull off exaggerated sideburns is a rare breed, but it seems, guys really like to go for it several times i…

Beckham’s Beard Garners Boos—How Scruffy Do You Like Your Man?

Seriously, what is it with guys and their annual beard-growing fascination? (Maybe it’s for Movember?) Doesn’t it seem like they do it just to prove they can, rather than to change their look? David Beckham is now sporting a beard which he started growing during a camping trip with his kids and he then “got…

Finally, Something Hipster Beards Are Good For

[Author’s Note: This DailyCandy story was an April Fool’s joke, which I fell for. Dammit!]

Finally, something hipster beards are good for: the five o’clock shadow exfoliation.

August Duben, owner and aesthetician at Spa Opilovat in Williamsburg, Brooklyn charges $125 for an exfoliating treatment in which he rubs his beard against a client&#8217…
