Amazing Facial Hair We've Loved And Lost

What is it about a guy with facial hair that gets our engines revving? Is a beard the dude's version of #WokeUpLikeThis? Is it the subtle, bad-boy edge a goatee gives off? Is it the fact that we can imagine running our fingers through all that glorious scruff? Whatever it is, there is one thing that's certain: A man with facial hair is damn sexy.
Which is why I applaud whomever came up with Movember. Men who participate ditch their razors during the full month of November to raise money and spark awareness for prostate and testicular cancers. Basically, Movember is a month full of guys in all their scruffy, charitable glory. (And, nothing says sexy more than philanthropy.)
While the rules of Movember state that there are no beards or goatees, just 'staches, I'm not here to split hairs (pun intended). I have mad love for all of the facial hair. So, we decided to round up 29 of the sexiest, scruffiest celebs in recent history.
There was much debate amongst the beauty team here at R29 about who won top honors. This is the definitive guide to facial hair we have loved and lost. Click through and enjoy yourself. We sure did.
